I've been using my Nikon 17-55 2.8 DX lens with my D300 and D3s. I plan on selling the D300. I do not mind using the 17-55 with the D3s, but as most know its not really for full frame. But it does a good job if I shy away from the 17-24mm area and do not use the lens hood. If not I get the back side of the lens on the outer frame edges. Usually it's not a problem. But I would like to have the extra wide angle for those tight areas. I do local band stuff from time to time (almost every...

I "retired" my D300 in late 2012 when I got my D600. I took the battery out, and stashed it in a camera bag and it's sat there every since. I recently took it out to play around with it, and it wouldn't turn on. I charged both batteries overnight, but the LCDs don't activate when I put it in and it doesn't turn on. Batteries can go bad, so I figured that maybe both died. I just bought a new Wasabi battery on Amazon ($15), charged it up and...same thing.  Any ideas? It seems unlikely that the...

Hi, I switched from a D300 to a D500 and really enjoy the new camera a lot. What I sometimes miss is the build in pop-up flash - especially for fill in light with Portraits against the sun. I have a SB-800 but that is quite big. Do you have recommondations for a smaller flash? A nice feature would be HSS. So an idea was the relatively new Metz M400. Does anybody use this with the D500 and can comment on experiences especially handling? I might also use it as a master flash for controlling...

Maybe someone can help me out with a DX question on D7200. Approx what focal length will my 24-120 F4 lens be in DX mode. I understand in regular mode it will be about 36-140. So in DX mode (1.3) would it be 46.8 to 234 or am I messed up and missing something? Also anyone know the approx file size in DX?  Also, about what iso is generally considered usable? I had no problem going to 1600 on my D700. D300 was 800 max. On my D5300 I limit iso about 1000. 1600 starts to get noisy to me. I think...

Have been using CNX 2 with with XP for years ,most recently offline and machine used exclusively for photo editing . It became necessary to reformat . I reinstalled my legal CNX2 disc which takes me to ver.2.0.0. Then tried to install downloaded upgrade which I saved prior reformat. Won't install as it needs newer 2.3.0 to work from.

Hello, I guess I'm new to photography.  I mainly take pictures of aircraft.  I currently use a Nikon Coolpix B500.  I'm thinking about buying a DSLR.  Here's what I'm thinking about getting: Nikon D300 Nikon D300s possibly Nikon D700 (I'll have to save up) Now just out of curiosity, the price for the D700 is $565 on ebay.  I saw one on Amazon for $400.  I also saw a D800 on Amazon for $400.  Both were listed on Amazon as "like new".  Should I trust that?  I'm skeptical.  It seems too good to...

Hello everyone, I have not done much macro photography but the little I have done I really enjoy. I use a Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR and have noticed on occasion that I would like to get in a bit closer. I wasn't sure what (if any) the disadvantages or compromises would be in using extension tubes and which type and spec tube(s) to get. Any input you could give me would be most appreciated.  Thanks so much for your time and expertise. I shoot with a D3 and D300. best to you, Rick

Hello folks, I just bought this Nikon F/2 DC, but unable to decide if it has any issues. I am providing a link to the drop box with two images, If some of you could please have a look and let me know what I should be doing next, that will be greatly appriciated. The images are shot with D700, but if you like I can repeat the test with a D300 or I can borrow a friends D610. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/deq3kfs76ze1d5e/AADTrAvfWYZWkmdrbVEenltva?dl=0 Please let me know if you like it to be tested...
