Ask a new question
For a D300S , how do you get an accurate count of the number of shutter operations? What is a reasonable maximum one can expect for shutter uses? Once you reach a functional maximum of shutter uses , what are your options? I assume you can service the camera but what do they do and what does it cost????

I'm shooting with Nikon D300S and my walking around lens is an 18-200 VR 3.5-5.6. I shoot in RAW for landscape, wildlife and occasionally portrait but have a 50mm 1.4 for the latter. I'm finding many of my photos when printed at size ( 16x20 or larger) are not quite sharp, some even slightly pixelated. So after traveling to some distant place to get some great photo ops, I wind up with not so great results in print. My image sizes tend to be 25MB or much larger after editing and I had...

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...
Looking to buy a second camera and don't want to spend too much. I already have a D750. DX is fine as my FX lenses will work with it...and it would be nice to use alongside my 750 to get a different view.What suggestions does everyone have? Want good image quality - that's a must - don't care about WiFi, GPS etc. Needs to have a good buffer for continuous shooting. Will consider just about any Nikon so long as the price isn't too high!

I start another question thread for the XF 10-24 to avoid cluttering up the XF 18-55 vs Sony 16-70 thread. Anyway, I definitely need an UWA. The XF 10-24 has been tested by e g Ken Rockwell and Imaging Resources with stellar results. It seems everything is great and there is no distortion. Only negative seems to be price. Now, the Nikon 10-24 also seems like a good choice. And the Sony 10-18 generally gets good reviews. Can anyone describe their experiences with either of these lenses? The...
Can anybody give me an opinion of the condition a DSLR body usually is with a 'G' rating at Adorama? I want a backup camera for my D3400 that can use some older AF-D lenses I've got. A Nikon D300S in G condition at Adorama is what I'm looking at. I don't care if it's ugly, I just want it fully functional with some life left to it. I'm looking to find out if anyone has purchased a 'G' rated DSLR body and what they thought of it.

my friends 24-70 non VR , took an ever so small tumble from the coffee table to the carpeted floor. There is no sign whatsoever of any bump or dent or scratch . He doesn't want to try and force it to zoom ,, it almost feels like is locked. Any suggestions before sending it for repair? . I would have thought such a rugged lens would have been able to withstand that. My d300s with a plastic mount 18 - 105 survived a fall from my truck floor to the pavement with no consequence . Anyone have a...

Thanks for helping. Taken with fuji 10-24 Here are some examples In this photo the colors seems very bad . When i took same shots with my Nikon D300s it is much better. Also in this photo sharpness very different...
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...
