Quick D810 question.  Is there any way to tell which focus mode (9 point, 3D, etc.) was used when taking the shot? I use LR for conversion but haven't found it in the metadata.  I also checked the camera's back screens for the info but couldn't see it there either. Metering info and a lot of other info is there.  I imagine that I'm overlooking something.  I tend to do that too frequently...

Hi there, So I have the D7100 with the 16-80 2.8-4 lens, which is a fantastic combination.  Love the setup.  I also have some FX glass as well, the 70-200 f4 and 60mm 2.8 AF-d.  Due to some upcoming shoots, I need a bigger RAW buffer.  I also happen to be shooting some engagement pictures for some friends and will be investing in a speed light.  My next purchase will likely be the D7200 so I can continue to use my 16-80, but get the bigger RAW buffer that I need.  However, it got me...

Hi! I am very new to my Nikon D800 and still learning it's ropes. I do really enjoy the camera but there are couple questions I just cant get answers for. 1) I was trying to focus on my subject, than lock (press the shutter release half way and press AE-L/AF-L) and recompose but it doesn't seem to truly lock the focus. Neither if I just lock the shutter release half the way. 2) I like the fetures of focus I found on my Lv like the moving subject option or face recognition. Where can I find...

I wonder if someone can help show me where in the D500 menu one has the option of copying all your shots from the XQD card to a SD card same size - since this option is available in the D800 series many thanks qanik

Hi all, after comparing the DP Quattro using the Image comparison tool i was blown away seeing how much the DP is ahead of Nikons D800, Fujis X100T and even Leicas Q regarding Resolution and Details in Low ISO´s. I also know of the limitations the DP does have but am willing to bite the bullet. Now it´s concerning the lens selection.  Is the DP2 a good compromise as middle of the pack in focal length ? I somehow tend not to go to the extremes of focal length as i want to use the cam...

I use a D800 and am dipping my toes into HDR. At first I wondered why it's necessary to bracket when the D800's RAW images have such wide dynamic range but upon opening up shadows in Photoshop the noise is quite noticeable. So back to bracketing. The author of EasyHDR, which is the HDR softare I'm using, recommends 2-stop bracketing, from the darkest area of the scene to the brightest. My question for this forum: is there any benefit to using 14-bit depth when bracketing?

I saw this lens in a shop, and I am slightly tempted. Verdict anyone? It is rare that I feel the need to shoot 35mm on my D800. I have 50mm primes and longer, and they cover most of my needs. If I want to go crazy wide, I use a 14-24mm. I'm no pixel peeper, but I'm concerned that the 35mm f/2 may not give any justice to the D800. I am a cropper, and I like to be able to crop to details in photos. The circumstances, when I assume I might use it, would be for example gardens, mountains and...

Hi all, What's your battery stand by time after a full charge, let's say you don't use it much after the charge, on your Nikon D800 or D810? I haven't been using my D800 much and recently I take it out and give it a full charge, but then it seems like after that full charge, the battery will just get drained within a week to empty, is it supposed to be normal? Thanks. --Go Against the Flow!

On the Nikon D800 Custom Settings Menu, f2 Multi Selector Center Button, on Playback the center button will present a very large colorful Histogram. Is there another button that can be reassigned to present this large Histogram rather than the small one contained in the Playback Menu Playback display Options? It is slow and somewhat difficult to see the smaller Histogram. and F2 Playback needs to be used for the zoom in medium use.  Thank you. Robert
