After spending the last 2 weeks intensively studying m4/3, everywhere, over-and-over, I'm ready to pull the trigger. Selling my Nikon D610, keeping my Nikon D7000. (Also keeping my Nikon P7800.)I've decided on the Olympus PEN-F, but can't make up my mind on lens(es). M4/3 lenses are supposed to be interchangeable, but after all that reading, my brain has turned even mushier than it already was, so I'm still a bit hesitant to "cross pollinate".Is there any reason not to use Panasonic lenses...
Hey there, I just wanted to ask if anybody around has experience in taking photos of the nightsky with the Nikon p7800. Is it capable of it (I am wondering because of the restrictions about exposure, only 2 seconds shutter-speed at ISO 6400 etc.), and if yes, which settings did you use? Thank you for replies, NilodirF
Hi All, I've been looking at purchasing a refurbished P330 for use as my "pocket camera". This camera appears to be perfect for my needs, it's the size I'm looking for and has RAW capabilities. I like the fact that it has built in GPS which the P340 doesn't. I've read that the GPS doesn't function very well however. I'd like to hear opinions from people who have used the P330 and P340. I'm wondering if the performance of the P340 over the P330 is significant enough to warrant spending the...
Hi All, I've discovered that when using my P7800 in either shutter priority or manual exposure mode that the flash won't fire in the "auto flash" mode (default setting). It doesn't matter how dark it is, the flash won't fire. In aperture priority or program mode it works as expected. To get the flash to fire in shutter priority or manual, I have to switch to "fill flash" mode or one of the other flash modes besides "auto". This behavior applies to both the built in flash and external...
Hello everyone Been sometime since I've posted in this forum - my 7100 hasn't had much use in recent times through no fault of its own, I've tended to use my N1 stuff much more. However (and I confess to being a GAS sufferer!) there are times when, despite being a fan of the N1 system, a SINGLE camera without a bunch of even lightweight lenses would be preferable. The P7100 produces (as you all know) great IQ and I've managed to resist GAS and the P7800 to date - but as the prices are really...
Since my last post, I kept the P7800, bought David Busch's book and am now taking a photography class and am learning how to use all the various features. My teacher and classmates are always impressed by the features on this "point and shoot," and they all have dslr cameras. I've seen a 2.2 high definition super telephoto lens with lens adapter (not by Nikon shown on Newegg). Has anyone had any experience with this accessory? What do you more seasoned camera people think? Thanks.
I understand that Nikon some time ago decided to not provide a 'method' to 'attach' a filter to their point and shoot cameras including the P7800. Are there ANY third party options/work-arounds for this problem? This is a deal killer for me as much of my shooting is around bodies of water and filters are needed. . . besides a UV filter on any camera lens is just a smart thing to do. --KZMike
Hi: I bought a "like new" p7800 based on buying guide (round-up: enthusiast compact camera.) I want to learn more about camera features, outside of always using "auto," and think this camera has a lot of features to work with. This means learning new language, ie., ISO, aperture, f-stop etc. My questions: Is this a difficult camera to learn to use? Or should I be using something less complicated? I'm thinking about buying the David Busch book. Is this camera fast enough to capture...
