I find that the number of perceptual megapixels DXOMark says the D800 provides with any given lens is suspiciously low. For example, they say that the Tamron 15-30 provides 24 P-MP on the D800E, but only 15 on the D800. Is it possible that the OLPF cancellation provides this much extra detail? However, they also say that the D610 provides 1 MORE megapixel of detail than the D800 with the same 15-30 lens. I find that hard to believe. Are they just plain wrong, or am I missing something?

Greetings. I just returned from a week long Florida wildlife photography expedition. During that time, My trusty old Nikon D7000 and Tamron 150-600 G1 were pushed to their limits. My D7000 is coming up on roughly 6 years old, and though it has served me well, it may be time for retirement. I don't like the large amounts of noise I get with the D7000, especially with darker backgrounds. In my search for a replacement, the D750 and D610 seem to be great cameras, especially at the price for...

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...

Hi, My friend and I are headed to Yosemite this Friday for 2 nights, coming back Sunday. Friday and Saturday Forecast is snow showers > 90% chance. Sunday is mostly sunny. When I planned the trip a couple of months ago, I assumed clear weather, so was planning sunrise and sunset shoots. I've never been to Yosemite for winter photography, especially without the sun. Any tips and locations would be really appreciated. Are there places that are better to shoot early morning, mid day , evening...

This falls under the category "Don't Be Dumb Like Me and Be Smart With Small Parts".. ugh! That said... My LCD was damaged so I replaced it with an after market version. At some point during the swap, the little connector that locks the ribbon cable to the LCD disappeared. As a short term solutions I ended up taping it into place and it worked for a while, but as I expected the tape came loose. I have looked everywhere and have been unable to find this part. I don't even know what its called....

Hi DP Members, My Dad and stepmother really love taking pictures of the birds where they live. They love the quality of pictures I get with my D610 + 150-600mm but it is way to big and cumbersome for them. They do not want a DSLR. I thought perhaps the Nikon P900 might be a good solution but even then it might be a bit of overkill. Can you please suggest a small camera that has decent image quality and a large focal range? I would like to gift it to them. I guess my budget is around $300 or...

I´m used to shooting bracketed tImelapses with my Magic Lantern compatible Canons. I set the the Interval and the camera waits for the set time, shoots the whole series at once and the process repeats ad infinitum. I know the D600 has a built in intervalometer but i don´t want +2...wait 10 seconds ... 0 ... wait 10seconds... -2 ... which is what my canons did without magic lantern and an external intervalometer. Can the D600 do this? thanks in advance and sorry for making this sound more...

Your expert opinions would be much appreciated Thought I may indulge in the selfie generation in a mildy elaborate way. Taken with d610 and samyang 135 on tripod with two off camera flash with shoot-through umbrellas about 30 degree behind my head. Small amount of ambient lighting to the front I preferred it in black and white and have kept the sharpness as I wanted a gritty look I cant however decide whether the photo would have benefited from a small front flash or continuous light to get...

I read that Nikon D610 can output an uncompressed 1080p video to an external recorder. I am thinking of getting the Atomos Ninja 2. I have never used an external recorder and, obviously, have no need for 4K one. My question is: do you get better quality, or even detail from recording uncomcompressed Prores vs the incamera h264? Thanks!

Hey there folks. I'm trying to connect my D610, D4s, and my D810 to other devices wirelessly. Nikon has several dongles to this end. They have the WT-5, which is apparently an excellent device and offers full control via an iPad / Cell phone, or computer. But there's also the WU-1a and WU-1b. First of all, what's the difference between these two, and then how does it differ from the WT-1? the WT-1 is like 700 bucks, while the other two are under 100. What gives?
