Hello, I noticed that the metering button on my D3 is finicky and requires a little more to turn than it should. It is also wanting to stay in Matrix metering even if turned to spot or center weighed. It takes a little messing with it before you can get it just right and manage to get it to "stay" at the setting you need it at. I went ahead and programmed another button so that the camera will go to spot metering when I need it. So selector switch stays in Matrix, and instead of messing with...

Hi! I have a NEX-6 and an a99v. Both are very good for most things. but low light high ISO is not one of those things. How is the D3 compared to modern mirrorless like a6300, a6500, a7 Mk2 etc in terms of AF speed and accuracy in low light and also noise levels at high ISO. I'm talking about shots at sunset or lower light levels. I will not climb mountains or walk around for the whole day with this kit so weight is not a high priority. Technical quality with 12MP will be plenty good enough...

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...
Hello everyone, I have not done much macro photography but the little I have done I really enjoy. I use a Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR and have noticed on occasion that I would like to get in a bit closer. I wasn't sure what (if any) the disadvantages or compromises would be in using extension tubes and which type and spec tube(s) to get. Any input you could give me would be most appreciated. Thanks so much for your time and expertise. I shoot with a D3 and D300. best to you, Rick
I recently bid a Nikon D3 on eBay but according to the description there's a problem with non-G lenses (basically included all the other lenses) Long story short, the aperture can be changed manually (just like normally what you do with AI lens) but the camera cannot know whether you change the aperture or not and thus, only meters wide open. And when you take a picture while stopping down the aperture, the picture will be under-exposed as a result because like I said it wouldn't know that...
This happened about a year ago when I bought the Nikon D800. I have CF cards from my D3, so that was not a problem. But I didn't have the SD card yet. I had a 32 gb microSD from one of my laptop. The card was functioning fine, normal in the computer before this. In a rush to test if the camera's SD slot worked, I put the microSD to its adapter and inserted the card into the camera. I formatted the card with the camera and started to take some pictures writing both to the SD and CF slots. I...

I'm sure this comes up frequently, but I'm having an unusual problem. My 50mm 1.4 works just fine on my D3 and D750, but displays fEE when mounted on my D810. My D810 works perfectly fine will all my lenses, but I get the fEE with that one lens. It seems the problem is with the D810, but I don't quite know where to put the blame. Any ideas?
