Hi Guys, I know this is a question which has been discussed so many times, but after researched + many youtube videos, not helpful... The major problem is that I have a very complicated situation. I am a professional photographer doing portrait (school photos mainly - group, sports, theater, life style etc.), and studio photos, and events. I have Nikon equipments including the D5, D3s, D3 and D800, and some Nikon glasses. D5 is very capable for action and theater, which I am very happy. I...

I'm trying to move a more updated camera setting from Nikon D500 to my old buddy D3s. But the memory card slots in these two cameras are totally different memory, D500 has one XQD, one SD; D3s has two CF card slots. Guess I can't simply move sd card from D500 to D3s. Questions are, 1. Which files are needed to transfer setting to "another" body? 2. Is it possible to transfer setting between different model?  Thanks for your input

Has anyone figured out the scheduling of when Canon and Nikon trade dominance in the higher-end camera market?  To me it's an obvious example of an informal keiretsu, because  over and over Canon comes out with a camera that blows away Nikon (like the 5DII for instance) and then after a year or two Nikon responds with a camera that torpedoes Canon (like the D3s or the D850).  Right now it's Canon's turn to release a camera that will leapfrog over the D850/D5; what I can't figure out is when...

I have an opportunity to purchase a Nikon D3s for $1650 canadian.  The seller says the camera has 15 000 on the shutter count.  From the photos, it appears to be in good shape.  I have never purchased a used camera, is this a reason price they are asking?

Has anyone else had auto-focus issues with a Nikon D500 when attached to an ancient Nikon AF-S Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 DII prime lens (non VR)? The lens will autofocus when attached to my D3S or D800 bodies, but when attached to my D500, it will do one of two things: Either the autofocus works a few times before becoming non-responsive, or the auto-focus doesn't respond at all. I have to disconnect the lens from the D500 in order "reset" the strange behavior. Same issue occurs in Live...

Hi guys, On the Nikon D5xxx series, the only bracketing option is AE (as well as ADL and white balance). If you select AE, the camera will expose -for instance- 0EV/-1EV/+1EV but leave the flash output as normal for the three shots. On the D7xxx series and above, there is a custom option to select also flash only or flash+AE bracketing. Is there a way to do flash only bracketing on the D5xxx series? This is especially useful when you shoot groups of people with different color skin,...
