I have not been able to get the quality I expect for years. I figured the problem was me (camera shake) and as a result I have done less and less photography, hardly picking up the camera for 5 years. Earlier this week the weather was too good to resist taking the camera. I shot 30 frames and while annoyed with myself for being so out of practice at framing and composing, it was the 'mush' that really got to me and wish I'd never taken it. Below are JPEG conversions done in Lightroom CC, ACR...

Anyone using a Sony a6300/a6000 and Sony a7II with adapted lenses. I have quite a few lenses from various manufacturers and same with adapters. Just sold my son's D5100 and D300 so he needs a new small camera. He also has some good Nikon Dx lenses (12-24 f4G) and 16-85vr. Any noticable difference in AF/MF in the APC and full frame bodies? Cannot afford a Sony a7SII or a7RII and he wants smaller than D500 (he has a D7100) . Fuji is not supported in India. Posted here since he would only be...

I've just upgraded from a D300 to a D500, and the change in what the camera is capable of makes my head swim a little! When I preview an image 'in camera' it has a lot more pop and very different tones, saturation, clarity etc than if I do the same in Lightroom 6. It's as if whitebalance and all sorts of things were interpreted differently in Lightroom, and the image is much flatter. I have both Lightroom and the D500 at default settings (SD pic control, no active-D etc). I know I could...

I should probably wait for the snapbridge to work better (tip for nikon: look at the fitbit blaze, it uses the GPS of the phone and is extremely stable), but a quick search on eBay gave me a lot of quite cheap GPS units which fits the D300, D500,  etc.  Is the plug the same and should it work?

For the same price of D500, a D4 with 5000 clicks is a good choice for BIF or the D500 is better option?. I need the feature of 10fps (Both), D500 153 focus point and highlight priority vs 51pts, 21MP vs 16MP even less with 1.5x crop, DX Semi pro body new tech vs FX pro body older tech. What do you think? I currently own D300, DF and D800 (and 200-500mm lens for BIF) --'Photography is about feel of view, not field of view'I view, I feel, I...

Hi, I am trying to decide which camera body i should buy for shooting concerts. I can have a used D300 or a used D5100 in similar price. which one is better for low light conditions and moving subjects? I have no problem handling each one of them. i just care a lot about quality. Any thoughts? Thanks! P.S.: Of course my next step will be a satisfying lens. f 2.8 if possible

When my daughter was in 4 grade, they had an assignment to choose a famous person and present it as an interactive “Museum”. Instead of choosing a woman celebrity like a dancer, singer or a movie star like most girls of her age would, she chose Ali as a total surprise to everyone!... Visitors had to push a button in order to start the “presentation”. As she had the most popular “show”, people kept pushing the button, and all day long she was boxing the air and chanting some of Ali’s famous...

I was given an Nikon D300 with an AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 lens. I work in a café and I want to use my D300 to take photos of the food to use in our menus and on promotional posters. However, I can’t seem to get the whole product in focus. This camera is WAY more advanced than my photography skills so I’d appreciate any advice on what settings to use to get the best results with my close-up shots. Please help!

I have LR 4.4 I use it exclusively to adjust my photos. I stick to RAW capture on my (now old) Nikon D300 and D70s. If I need photoshop I use CS2. But that's very rarely. So my question is have any others done this update, and was it worth it? As you can tell I like to get maximum use from software and hardware! So I don't chase latest and greatest, and was trying to avoid the £9 (approx.) subscription model. Does the perpetual LR6 include the HDR and panorama modules? I could see me using...
