Hello, my house just got burglarized and they took my Nikon D3200, I used for reprography (mainly drawings and water paintings). On a budget, what should I get now? I considered the new D3500 or the older D5200, but I also found the Sony a6000 somewhat interesting (this also tells something about the price range). For me it is all about IQ, especially sharpness and detail, as the camera rarely leaves its mount and lightning conditions are always the same. I am also not invested into a...
Hi, I've been shooting concerts for about a one and a half year now and have invested during that periode in better gear. Being on a tight budget I purchased a used D700 a year ago and a used D3 a few months ago. I also purchased Nikon brand 50mm f/1.4, 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 (VR model 1) lenses. I shoot with the two latter most of the time. Because of the challenging lighting conditions I shoot at high ISO (3200-6400) most of the time. Due to the high ISO setting some photos are...
I was about to send my cameras to Melville for pre-season cleaning and adjustment when I decided to check the shutter count on my D3s out of curiosity. Somehow my camera managed well over twice the 300K count the shutter is rated for. I usually only send a camera in when something breaks, but I think I should probably go ahead and have the shutter mechanism replaced rather than continue to tempt fate. My question is this, should I also have the metering mechanism replaced too, or is that...
Hi all! I'm Zack and I live in Stockholm Sweden. I've been lurking here for quite some time and now it was time to create an account for myself, because I need your help! I currently use a Nikon D3, but I'm thinking about upgrading. I use my camera for: - Portraits - Concert photography - Urbex/architecture/allround The D810 looks like the best upgrade for me, because I find the D4(s) too expensive. The D810 has a nice body, it has great image quality and lots and lots of megapixels! And that...
Hello! I've never asked a question on here so bear with me. I have found a nikon D3 on craigslist for $1200. He says it needs a sensor cleaning (which is $100 at my local camera shop) but other than that it's very good condition. It has 80,000 shutter actuations. Is this a good deal? I know it's a very nice camera, it almost seems to good to be true. Or is that about right for a camera of that age? Thanks
I have had some success in shooting sports but an having a problem getting matching colors from my Nikon D3 and a D700. Despite the sensors being essentially the same and setting them to match, I get different color results. The more I read, the more confused I get. I don't have time to take hours processing as I shoot 3 or more games a week. Can I fix this in the camera or is it a post processing function?
Greetings everyone, I have a possible ignorant question. I'm just learning about infrared photography. I'm using a d3 and hoya r72 filter. My question is when I take a custom white balance do Ido it with the filter on or off the lens? also, When I try it with the filter on the camera says no good. If wb is done with the filter on how do I overcome this? Thanks, I'm confused about this. Twainman
I am a new hire at a newspaper. One of the bodies here is a D3. When I put any lens on the camera, it looks very dark through the viewfinder. If I look right at a light, I can see the light, but it is dark. Any "normally lit" stuff is almost black in the view finder. If I take a picture, it looks the same way on the LCD screen. VERY dark. The lenses work on other bodies we have here. If I take the lens off the camera, and look through the view finder, it looks normal. lots of light coming in....
