I'm in the middle of transitioning from Olympus 4/3rds to FX.  I bought a well used D800 two weeks ago.  I really only had cash for two lenses: 50mm 1.8G and the 70-300mm VR i.  I'm enjoying the camera and lenses quite a bit.  I was only using the JPEG images on my 4/3rds camera and I'm thinking of embarking on trying to process RAW images.  At this point, I do not have lightroom or photoshop on my computer.  BUT I see that the camera has in-camera raw processing.  Are the results preferable...

Hi guys, I just bought my D800 and am disappointed to find that my Nikkor-P Auto 105mm f/2.5 manual lens (Probably made somewhere between 1950-1970) does not work with the D800 - it can mount without snagging anything, but gives the blinking ERR message only after I release the shutter. This lens has worked perfectly and beautifully on my D7100, with no problems. Since this is a Pre-AI lens, it does not have any auto capabilities and the "Set to minimum aperture" advice does not apply to...

Okay, I'm lazy. I admit it. I have a D800 and would like to download my images (not in real time) after I return from a day out with the family. Right now, it's pull the card out, put it into the computer, wait for the transfer to the hard drive, LR or PS, etc etc etc. Come back, eject the card, and back into the camera it goes. I looked into the EyeFi but see enough reliability problems to scare me away. Is there a simple solution? thanks. Neil

Hi.. A Nikon friend of mine (i'm a Canon guy) has a D800. She's trying to shoot a timelapse for timestacking. Only problem is that the camera has decided to compress all the frames into a mov. file when done. In other words there are no frames to work with. So the question is this: Does the D800 have the same otions as the D4 where one can choose to either do a timelapse in movie mode or just x numbers of exposures using the buillt in intervalometer and the edit them later on (startrails,...

I would to get some time lapse clips into my video. The Nikon D800 can take time lapse video. I am wondering, if I set the camera up to take 1 frame per second, how long a duration would my battery last? I am using the battery grip with an extra battery. Would it last, like 12 hours?

Hi, I'm using a Nikon D7000 since 2012, I normally shoot landscapes and nightsky (milky way / star trails etc). My D7000 is not that great when it comes to taking pictures in dark and higher ISOs. I'm in the market for a new camera. Almost all my lenses are full frame lenses. My budget is $1700, As per the internet researches I did, I can  1. Get a used D600 I saw used D600 is on sale from $650+, but I'm kinda afraid of the sensor oil spill. I dont like the thin grip (I have big hands ;) ) 2....

Hi, Im thinking about getting a speedlight for my D800, which spends most of its time with a 14-24 on it. Something I wanted to play with is shooting  with the flash held by an assistant, or placed within the shot to illuminate the target. I have the impression that the way to do this would be to use the popup flash as a commander for the speedlight. The one problem is that the 14-24 casts a huge shadow with the popup flash if I'm just using it as a flash. Is this likely to manifest when it's...

I have a friend who relies on Apple Photos. He would like to convert only his raw files into jpegs and asked me how to do it. I don't use Photos (I use LR) but have it for iPhone synching and it became quickly apparent that there is no facility in Photos to export only "finished" raw files. Only originals. Also there is no search function to find these files as a group. With Aperture this was easy. So my question. Is there a plugin to Photos that will do this or an App that will do this, or a...

I recently bought my first full frame camera Nikon D800 with lens Nikkor 85mm f1.4. One of the first photoshoots I noticed some lines in the top right corner. This photo was shot at f2.2. Can somebody please educate me what it is?

My Nikon D800 is capable of the resolution in the title. So far I have been shooting 1080/30 for my learning. I want to explore other resolution. I am wondering why anyone would want to lower the resolution and increase the frame rate. I have some questions: 1. Does the 60 fps offer smoother movement clips? Like panning of the camera, or the subject's movement. 2. If I view the 1280x720 video on my 1920x1080 screen, would I be looking at a big black bands around the video, or would the...
