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....

Hi! I'm an owner of two OM-D E-M1s with battery grips, two E-PM2s and one E-PL5 (it's a matter of another topic why so many cameras). Today I bought a GX7 because I desperately need something to speed up my autofocusing with my 45mm f1.8, 75mm f1.8 and 35-100 f2.8 in dim light. I was just about to buy the Panasonic 42.5mm f1.2 but then I tested it on the GX7 as well as on my E-PL5 and found that the former is a killer in therms of AF speed. I'm used to working with auto ISO in A mode. I set a...
