At the risk of getting flamed here... I am considering purchasing a second body so that I don't have to change lenses so often. I currently own a d7000, which I actually like quite a bit.  The issue is that I am also thinking about getting a second body that is "tough" like possibly a d500. I wan't something that I can take to the beach and out on adventures in woods that I don't have to worry about too much. Granted, a bigger view finder, better AF and bigger buffer are also kind of...

My aging D300s has been my go-to camera for years with good reason.  Lately, however, it seems like detail is lacking/resolution is poorer. I noticed it recently when taking strong telephoto shots of small birds at a feeder.  (250mm @ 25ft)  In the past my shots have been very sharp.....the latest ones blur the fine details of the feathers.   I've tried 2 different, well proven lenses. I tried setting a yardstick at an angle to see where focus point actually is and it was inconclusive.  Focus...

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. Is there a fix to get 2.0.0 to open nef files from my D300s ? Any help would be appreciated. Dave

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...

Here's a list of my equipment that I use for regular photography: Nikon D40x, Nikon D90, Nikon D300s, Nikon 18-55 VR, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 70-200 f/2.8, Canon G7X Mk ll, GoPro Hero 4 Silver. 1) Where is the Milky Way in the sky of southwest Iowa about 9 pm ? 2) If using one of my DSLRs which lens would be best for first tries at night photos or a night lapse of the Milky Way ? 3) The G7X Mk ll has a night lapse video feature that I have used once. It works well but is limited to about 10-15...

Hi guys, I have a Nikon D300S. I've searched this topic and I think my charger is compatible in Australia (230V 50Hz). However, when I look at the charger info, it has two pieces of information that are confusing to me. Here's a screenshot of the charger's information: http://imgur.com/a/Pvx9n In one section , it says: INPUT: 120V~60Hz And the other section under Foreign, it says: INPUT 100-240V~50-60Hz. I don't understand why there are two sections for this. Will it work in Australia? If it...

I have an opertunity to purchase a  Nikkor AIS 55mm F1.2 lens in excellent condition for a good price.I already have a Nikkor AIS 50mm F1.8 and a Nikkor AIS F2.0 lenses.The lenses would be used on a D810, D750, D300s and a newly purchased D500 camera.I am very impressed with the D500 images that I have shot so far.Is the image quality similar when using let's say F5.6 for all three lenses.I have never used a 55 mm F1,2 lens before.What are the pros and cons of using such a fast lens. I would...

Underexposing D500 has been discussed in this forum, but I've not had an opportunity due to snowed-in conditions to really test mine in the real world — BIF's, landscapes, etc, but what I have been able to do seems that it's underexposing more than normal, or compared to my D7200 and D300s. So, after getting an RMA from B&H, I stepped outside, and there was a tweetiebird on the fence, and I was able to grab a couple of shots. Spot metering, 6mm center-weighted area, focus/metering in red...

I have had my EM-1 since May 2015 and used it on a photo safari through Southern Africa in April>May 2016. At the time I had not used the Video capabilities of the camera at all. In fact, I had an old JVC Camcorder with me and did not use that much either. However, since returning and having used both at an Air Show I have been looking into using it on the next photo safari to Botswana/Namibia and am looking to equip it with a gimbal, or similar, so that I can have it in an horizontal...

After 7 years of service I upgraded from D300S to D500.  I love the D500 and it is a definite upgrade over the  D300S.  Unfortunately, I had to upgrade from ViewNX2/CaptureNX2 to ViewNXi/CaptureNXd just to edit any of my RAW photos.   With Nik plugin tools what is the purpose of Capture NX-D?  If Capture NX-D have some purpose and now that it's free, wouldn't it been better to just have the ViewNX-I tool?  Don't really understand Nikon editing tools strategy. I wish they just update capture...
