Hi Guys, I know this is a question which has been discussed so many times, but after researched + many youtube videos, not helpful... The major problem is that I have a very complicated situation. I am a professional photographer doing portrait (school photos mainly - group, sports, theater, life style etc.), and studio photos, and events. I have Nikon equipments including the D5, D3s, D3 and D800, and some Nikon glasses. D5 is very capable for action and theater, which I am very happy. I...

i finally upgraded from the nikon d5500 to the d3, and it feels like the dial has been set back and i'm an absolute beginner again. i have searched the custom settings menu and pressed every button on this camera, but i can't figure out how to change the aperture or how to disable auto ISO.  i want to be in complete manual mode, but i can't figure out which button to press to change the aperture. when i set ISO to 200, the camera turns it back to iso 800. i'm assuming this is auto ISO? if...

I have a used (looks new) 7100 that always locks up when put in Live view still mode. Is this a common issue w this body? FW ver is C 1.03 and L is 2.015 SC was about 8500 when I got it. Stills through VF and LV video seem to work fine. But as soon as you hit LV for stills it activates for about 2-4 seconds then the rear screen goes blank and camera is stuck with power on.  Have to pull batt to shut down. Upon re inserting battery the err comes on top display and have to hit shutter button to...

As I think about a replacement for my DP3 Merrill which was destroyed in my vehicle fire in Sept, I was thinking about a D3. Since I record many panoramas, this would suffice for the most part. What to do?

Hi  I recently discovered the DK-17M and it worked a charm on my D3. Today, I got hold of a second-hand D810 in excellent condition and I tried the DK-17M on it. Unfortunately, while the focus and clarity was fine on the D810 with the standard eyepiece it took a serious turn for the worse when the DK-17M was fitted. I thought it was just a question of diopter adjustment but no matter whether the DK-17M is attached or not to the D810, twisting the diopter in the plus or minus direction as much...

Hi, I'm new to the rather lovely Nikon D3 and have read about the rear LCD fogging issue that occurred with this model. What I haven't really found in my search is the extent to which the issue has (if at all) proved troublesome over time. Most posts relate to discovering the fogging & contacting Nikon about it (or not) but there are very few follow ups detailing any impact over the course of time of ownership. I would be very grateful for any first hand experiences/advice - specifically,...

I've been following the D300 in 2017 thread in the Pro DX forum with some interest. Reason is that I need a sports machine for my kids with reasonably fast AF but also with very accurate good tracking and reasonable chance of lock on. My beloved Sony a99 Mk1 does not deliver in this department though it is far from hopeless. But it is not a sports machine. Now, here in China, prices are like D300s for $375 or a D700 for $650. DX has the advantage of the nice and expensive Nikon 16-80 and the...

Hello I'm looking for some advice from those with experience of the above two lenses. I've got a Fuji XT-1 with the above two lenses plus the 56mm f/1.2. I use this camera for portrait photography but I've been thinking about my backpacking and hiking trips recently. I keep running into some beautiful locations armed with just the iPhone and a Sony RX100. But I feel leaving my XT-1 at home is such a shame. So I'm considering taking it on future adventures where possible. So my questions are,...

I'm not a pro, but a serious enthusiast looking to finally upgrade to a full frame. I was considering buying a used D3, but that is a fairly old camera if I am not mistaken. Is it still worth buying used? I can't afford a lot of the newer models, unfortunately. I'd like to stay in the $800-$1,300 price range. Is the D3S worth buying, or should I just go for a used D750? I like the FPS and the build of the D3/D3S, but it seems like the D750 may be a more versatile camera?  I shoot mainly...

Wondered if I could ask some advice about sensor cleaning on Nikon D3. i have limited knowledge on this subject. I recently purchased a used D3 to add to the D2H I purchased new 15 years ago. It is in excellent condition and has only 6000 shutter activations. The D3 is fantastic and I can see why it gets rave reviews. As a precaution I put it into my local Nikon approved service centre for a sensor clean and was told that it was quite dusty and that a small speck of dirt remained near the low...
