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 $$$)...

Hi, I am thorny artichoke, new in the forum but I appreciate it and read with interest it. I am new to photography and aim of my photos are "travel photography". I am following a course and I bought a Panasonic FZ1000 for 550 euros. Why? what I want from a photocamera? -not to travel with a lot of stuff (also because I am not sure I will be able and patient enough to change it, clean it, be careful of it.....) - the maximum range of possible photo from macro to wide angle -possibility to...

Dear all, I am discussing with myself wether to go into the Leica M system or not. One aspect is the ability to use ZEISS lenses. My choice would be a WA like the Planar 2,8/25 ZM or maybe the Biogon 2,8/21 ZM, and a standard lens (C Sonnar 1,5/50 ZM or Planar 2/50 ZM - probably the second one?) First of all, I can afford them much better than comparable LEICA offerings, of course ;)  Second thought, I have very good experiences with ZEISS on a D300 in former days... had the 25mm ZF, and the...

I just received an AF Nikkor 80-400mm ED lens, and upon testing it with my D7200, it will not autofocus. I tried it on a D300 and the autofocus works, just not on my 7200. I made sure the Autofocus settings on the camera and the lens are set to auto and the limit switch is off. Everything I have read says this lens should be compatible with my camera. Am I doing something wrong?  Thanks!

I've had this problem for years with both the D200 I used to have and my D700 I've had for over 5 years. I shoot motorsports, primarily at night. Some cars have reflective decals on them. Some come out okay, most come out underexposed. I have asked around for years and never can get an answer that works. So I'm bringing my question here. What setting(s) affects this? As you can see in the samples below, the first is with reflective that is underexposed and the second has no reflective. The...

I hope I can explain this scenario where it makes sense in order for some answers. I have a Nikon D800e + Nikon SB 910 + Godox X1T-N + Godox X1R-N. When I use high speed sync for an exposure, I have no issues with the flash or camera, everything works as designed. However, when I use my D300 + Nikon SB 910 + Godox X1T + Godox X1R-N, my camera is catching the rear curtain, high speed sync isn't working as it should be. I've checked the camera's e1 menu and it is set at 1/250 (Auto FP) for high...

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...
