I am a sportsphotographer, and shoot football/soccer in the danish premier league. Just got my new D4S today, and I am putting my usual settings in. I have been using D3's the last many years. Any pro football/soccer photographers on, that can share their AF-settings.? Things like focus lock-on On or Off etc. etc. Put my preferred D3 settings in, as best I could, and shot some fast moving cars in the street. Every single shot was perfectly in fokus. So not much to learn from that experience!...
Hi all, I´m still happy with my old D3 from 2007. I have three EN-EL4a batteries and today the first of them shows a 4 in charging life. My question is if the battery will stop working or can´t be charged in the near future due to a programed electronic switch off JP
Hi, I just bought a used Nikon D3. Trying to connect it via USB to a windows 10 machine and it is not being recognised by Windows at all. No "new hardware wizard" popping up. Camera stays in shooting mode. When the cable is plugged into the camera the green light blinks if the camera is already on, so it knows it is plugged in to some degree. My questions: Is this a windows 10 driver/compatibility issue? Has anyone else had a D3 working on windows 10? I have tried 2 cables, one brand new. 2...

IIRC Nikon claimed that the current generation cameras can AF with lenses which can't open wider than f/8, which is a nice plus for TC use with long telephotos. This implies that the older generation cameras would only AF up to f/5.6. I have some interest in the Sigma 150-600, and since I still use some older cameras and Sigma is only f/6.3 at the long end, the issue of AF is a big one for this lens. In the meantime, I'm coming across a review of this...

Hello all!! i'm a journalist student looking to invest some money in a DLSR and try her hand at photojournalism and cinematography. I've done the research and have decided on Nikon. I'm attracted to the D330, because of the price point. I'm a beginner and have been pretty notorious in the past about getting frustrated over photography and giving up, so I want to keep it as cheap as possible, so I won't feel so bad if this doesn't work out. I also want to keep the camera as basic as possible...
I am looking to buy a new camera for wedding and event photography, my Nikon d600 will then become my second body. What i am having trouble with is deciding weather the Nikon d3 is still a good camera for events in low light over something like the D750, The reason i am thinking of the D3 is that i love the bigger body and grip, along with the great button layout. I have heard nothing but great reviews of both but one is getting older now but the image quality hasn't changed, i would like...

I had never used the USB cable to transfer image directly from the camera (with the CF cards in slots). I have always popped the CF from the camera and use a card reader to handle the task. I found the cable and decided to give it a try. I connected the cable to my D3 and USB port of my computer (Windows 7). It loaded the driver and Window Explorer recognize a devise called D3. When I clicked on it, it took me to the folders so I can see the images in thumbnails. Clicked a thumbnail and the...
