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?
I have started to do more events and weddings recently and will continue to do so. The largest prints I will be making are mainly 15 X 11.5". I just did a wedding a few weeks ago with my 16MP fuji gear and the prints came out simply beautiful. Even several years ago I did my sister's wedding with the nikon D200 and the pictures came out pretty darn decent on print. The funny thing is that on my monitor they don't look very good, but on print they looked very nice. Not as good as the fuji...
Ok ... Ok ... I know its initially a bizarre sounding question, but the D500 has piqued my interest as I still have a number of nice DX lenses that I could use on a good body. One thing that I was just mulling over though is this - when the D700 hit the scene and a number of pros started using them, one thing that did seem to come to light after a while was that shooters who use a camera mounted flash started to have more issues with the D700 than the D3 type bodies, and IIRC, it was...

Custom menu setting d3 issue - something I've noticed in going thru the menus today troubles me a bit. Maybe I'm missing something. If you select "show ISO" instead of "show frame count" there is no way to know how much memory space you have left on the card you've selected for storing your images. My D750 and D7200 are set for "easy ISO" which shows the ISO setting for the exposure in the viewfinder when shooting, but the frames remaining (i.e., space available on the memory card) is still...
