Hi! All else being equal, would a brighter lens focus more reliably in low light? Or, more specifically, would the new 70-200 F/2.8 FL focus more reliably in low light than my 70-200 F/4? I was shooting in a dimly lit location and my D800 / 70-200 F/4 combo struggled a little bit to nail focus. Regards, Timo  --https://www.flickr.com/photos/125100899@N03/

I am a real estate photographer/videographer who currently uses a Nikon D800 as my main shooting camera. I am interested in buying the Sony A7sii. Because I do Real Estate work my clients want the room to look the biggest while not getting to much distortion. I am currently using a Nikkor 14-24mm, I know I have been told that because this is F-Mount lens I will be able to use this on the Sony with a simple lens adaptor, but I heard if I do this I will lose the auto focus. My questions is: 1....

I am getting a bit confused with the terminology. I shoot with a D800 for now. I shot usually 20 to 30 video files that got saved to the SD card. First thing in a PP project is to import the videos and put a bin I named "Videos". What do I call those videos in the bin? I have been calling them "footages". Is it the correct terminology? Then I create a timeline by dragging one of the footages into the timeline panel and I rename it "Sequence 1" in the project panel. Then I would review the...

I know it is advisable to use MF when videoing. I have no problem with it when I am using the 20mm because it has a very deep depth of field and I generally don't have to worry about OOF video. When I use the 80-400mm (the lens is notorious for shallow DOF) in taping subject in a distance, I do have a problem getting the focus right, particularly in broad day light. When I set the camera to video and have liveview on, it shuts off the viewfinder so I have to rely on adjusting the focus on the...

I am making a hard decision between the Fuji X70 and Ricoh GR II as a secondary camera along with my D800 DSLR. Both camera seems perfect in my point of view and they are at the same price in Canada since Fuji is currently having a discount on X70. The "bad wifi" on GR won't be an issue since I am a RAW shooter and I always edit in computer. The only thing I am concerned about is the GR dust issue cuz I heard people who had last generation GR talking about it and I am not sure about the GR...

I am also choosing between Sigma 160-600 mm S and 200-500 mm Nikon. The main purpose of the application would be shooting birds. I have Nikom 300 mm f / 2.8 and I tested with the 2.0 teleconverter. With this combination I was not too happy. It is necessary a good stand, a good head and excellent light conditions for a good result (for my requirements). Now i think about teleconverter 1.4 or the above-mentioned combination (teleconverter 1.7 in not good solution). I believe that the Nikon...

The 14-24 f/2.8 is around 8 years old and there are newer lenses around, namely the Tamron 15-30 and Sigma 12-24 Art. So does the Nikon 14-24 still cut it alongside the competition? Using a D800 series FX body? The Sigma is still largely untested, though it's main marketing point seems to be no distortion, rather than absolute sharpness. It's price is also up at the top and surpasses the 14-24 in the UK (though not in the US. Looking at some reviews (Stuckincustoms in particular), Nikon's...

I recently bought a D700 and fell completely head over heels. Until I got a battery grips for it, the camera wouldn't see the grip. Yes it was a Nikon branded MB-D10 with an EN EL3a battery, I tried rechargeable batteries and set the batteries in the camera, and I tried the grip with just the battery in the camera, nothing worked. The camera would not see the grip. I thought it was grip so I returned it and bought a new one. Same same troubleshooting and same result, the camera simply would...

Hi,I recently bought a Nikon D750. Had been using a D90 for 5 years before that and had faced the same issue before when I initially started shooting RAW.I remember downloading and installing some kind of windows codec for RAW support and it worked but it's not working for the D750 RAW files. I googled and found this -http://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-view-raw-pictures-windows-live-photo-gallery-and-fix-weird-errors Which ultimately leads to this...

Hello all. I need to purchase a camera plate as well as a lens plate for a MonoBall Z1 SP Classic. I am looking at the plates on the arca swiss site but cannot decide which is best. Are there any better alternatives?
