Let me start by saying I have been shooting slr/dslr for 20+ yrs, although the tech/math part of it is not my forte.. I'm so confused as to why my photos lack brilliance & sharpness with my d7100.  My old D80 pics are by far way more impressive.   I thought perhaps it might be due to one particular lens (70-300mm nikkor dx 5.6 vr) however LRcc is not detecting metadata from the d80 shots.  I know there are a lot of variables in my problem. My question is:  how do I determine where I'm messing...

Hello all, I know DX and FX formats are different. But this is the dilemma I am currently facing. My first camera was Nikon D80, I've had it for a few years and I loved it, it was great. My only problem with it was the small frame especially when using the 50mm lens. I had to sell it in 2014 and I've been without a camera since then. Now I want to get back into the scene but due to my limited budget, I'm finding it hard to make a decision. I am not a professional, I won't be making any money...

I attended the fire parade at Liestal Switzerland but on return back found a number of pictures had "flare" type lines like the ones in the pic. Trying to understand what my D80 and 50mm 1.4 with a UV filter were doing - hence asking the question as many others came out really well. No "ghost" effect. Any help really appreciated.

So, my work got me a D7200 in December, and today I accidentally tipped over my tripod with the camera on it, ugh. The hot shoe PC connector took the brunt of it (and is trashed), and from what I can tell, there's no physical damage to the camera or 50mm/1.8 lens. It doesn't appear that the camera even touched the ground. I shoot horizontally using an extender bar on the tripod so it looked like the hot shoe + extender propped the camera up enough to avoid hitting the ground. However, now the...

Hi, I owe a Nikon D80 and would like to upgrade my kit lens Nikkor 18-135mm for a better all around lens. I've been looking at the Nikon AF-S DX VR II Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED but not sure it fits my 10 year older camera. Can somebody confirm it does or recommend another good quality all around lens for my D80. I mostly shoot urban and nature. Thanks

Hello!  I've used this website for a while now and have found a lot of great resources here.  And now I'm having an issue and hope to get your opinion. I purchased a D810 a couple weeks ago and I am absolutely loving it so far.  However I went and did some night shots a couple nights ago and came across something. It was pitch black where I was so I was shooting at 30 sec at F/2.8, ISO between 2000-3200.  I was trying to freeze the stars hence the high ISO.  When I brought the images home and...

hello. I Recently purchased a nikkor 50mm prime and have encountered phase detect autofocus inaccuracy throughout the frame at wider apertures demonstrable on USAF and ISO target charts for  (f1.8 upto 4) using a Nikon af-s 50mm F1.8 G lens on a d5500. Results from f5.6 onwards are fine. Results using CD (live view) are fine. The lens also performs fine on my other camera bodies d90 d80. Is this something autofocus recalibration by Nikon can address without impacting af performance on the...
