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...

I'm using a Nikon D300s with the original firmware.  Lots of conflicting information out there about the capacity and speed of CF and SD cards that will work in this camera.  I'm asking for advice on how big and how fast (writing from buffer to the card) a card, both CF and SD, I can safely use. Thanks

I have invested in acouple of Lexar 2933 64gB card for my new camera.  I'm getting it for Xmas so haven't got my hands on it yet.  I'm assuming the 2nd slot for the SD card is the usual overflow or backup settings of my other Nikon cameras. The question is am I shooting myself in the foot putting an SD card in the 2nd slot as backup as has about half the write speed of the XQD card. Will I be limiting the shooting speed to the slowest card? In the past with my old D300S I had a compact flash...

Hi there, I just purchased the above lens for my Nikon D300s and the auto-focus won't work despite me switching on all the right settings.  From my research it looks like it is supposed to work with the D300s, which has a built-in motor. Ken Rockwell wrote an article on this lens and according to him the AF should work with my camera.  The retailer I bought it from is saying that because my D300 is "entry level" it does not have a motor hence why the auto-focus won't work. But I am pretty...

Hi Mates, I'm in lookout for a decent camera bag. Stumbled across 1) Lowepro Fastpack 250 AWii 2) Manfrotto MB MA-TL Advanced Backpack 3) Tamrac Corona 26  Now, my needs suit up for the above models, BUT, i would appreciate users reviews. So that i can fix up on any one of them. These 3 come up in the same budget, here in India. I carry my D300s + 18-200 + 50mm + 15in Laptop pretty much always. For the while im stuffing them all into my Laptop Bag, and its pretty uncomfortable. I wish to...

Hi all, I am currently using a D300s body with the following portfolio of lenses: Sigma 10-20mm/3.5 DC/DX Sigma 17-50mm/2.8 DC/DX Sigma 105mm/2.8 macro DG/FX Sigma 70-200mm/2.8 DG/FX Nikon 200-500mm/2.8 DG/FX Now I'm planning to dive into the wild world of full frame, most probably a D750, and selling the D300s. My two Sigmas 10-20mm & 17-50mm are suited for DX bodies and give me excellent results (after some fine tuning by Sigma), but I would like to retain them for now for use with the...
