I've been following the D300 in 2017 thread in the Pro DX forum with some interest. Reason is that I need a sports machine for my kids with reasonably fast AF but also with very accurate good tracking and reasonable chance of lock on. My beloved Sony a99 Mk1 does not deliver in this department though it is far from hopeless. But it is not a sports machine. Now, here in China, prices are like D300s for $375 or a D700 for $650. DX has the advantage of the nice and expensive Nikon 16-80 and the...

My coworker says that the camera suddenly stopped focusing accurately. I'm losing faith in my judgment! Is this properly focuses? Nikon D300. Small crop from large TIFF. Center single focus, this is the spot focused on.

Hi all, Am a Nikon user again, after four years of flirting with micro 4/3. Sold my D300 and 18-200 mm four years ago because of poor low light performance and ventured into the world of micro 4/3, never got used to it though, just didn´t work for me, especially missed the superior autofocus of the D300. So I finally bought a D500 with the 16-80 kit zoom, great to be "home" again. The 16-80 is a great lens, but I need a zoom lens, what would you guys suggest? Probably should go for the latest...

G'day, As a Fishing Editor for the Australian Boating Magazine, I was disappointed to see that the D850 is to sell for about $5300 AUD in Australia! Now, as far as I am aware, the same camera is selling in the USA for about $3300USD, which is $4135AUD at today's exchange rate.  There has never been a $1100-1200AUD disparity in US vs Australian pricing.  Sure, there's some extra freight and a bit of tax to add before it hits us, but not over $1000 difference! I've owned (just in the DSLRs...

I am using a Nikon 70-200mm F2.8 G lens on a D500. I shoot sports - 1500 pictures/game completely in autofocus. Recently I can not get through a game without the 70-200 autofocus "freezing up". Autofocus stops working completely as if I am in manual . Even if I remove lens and put back on, remove battery, alter all settings, etc. it will not autofocus. I even changed body to a D300 and the 70-200 lens still remains frozen. Conversely if I put another Nikon lens (not 70-200) on either D500 and...

While cleaning up I found a nice Vivitar Macroflash 5000 that was used on a Nikon SLR. My question is, can I use this ring flash on my digital Nikon D2x / D300 / 90 camera units? I hear some older flashes are bad to use due to voltage differences. Can I safely use this?

I'm traveling to Greece and I want a good all-purpose zoom lens to photograph Greece. Targets will be mostly landscapes, lots of seascapes, architecture & details and some portraits/people. No need for great reach. The lens has to have really good IQ, be relatively LIGHT and cover a decent range (though 200-300 may be overkill). I have a D300 camera (DX) and have an 85mm f1.8 prime and 18-35mm (older version not "G") wide angle zoom BUT I am missing the 35-85mm range AND I don't want the...

Dear all, I am addicted to ZEISS lenses since I used the fabulous 25mm and the 50mm ZF on my Nikon D300 some years ago. Today, I am shooting with a PEN-F and Leica/Olympus lenses, but I am missing the fantastic Zeiss rendering. If I flip through my old files, I can differentiate at a glance between Zeiss and Nikkor shots (esp. for the 25mm). So, I am looking for a modern option to shot with Zeiss. The X-Pro1 is one of these, since I can get the body and the 32+12 for less than 1800€. Another...

Hello! This is my first time posting but I've been reading the forums for quite some time and very grateful for all the information that is being shared! I bought a D300 8 years ago when I traveled to Australia and NZ, finally retiring my trusted and beloved FE2. I wanted a good solid camera that would last me a long time but as my 1st digital camera (ever), it's been a frustrating journey with a steep learning curve and mostly hit and miss. Lately I'm finding the photos that I'm taking are...

Hi all, I'm looking for some advice from Sony A6000 users. My main camera is the D300 but at high ISO it's not that great and top limit is 6400. The main reason that I want to add the A6000 Higher ISO - indoor when Flash & tripod isn't allowed or convenient Secondary reason use as an 'everyday carry camera' - instead of my phone lighter weight than an SLR with prime  The secondary reasons are nice but I can live without them. So I had 2 choices, either up the D300 to D500 (which cost $$$)...
