Hello, I guess I'm new to photography.  I mainly take pictures of aircraft.  I currently use a Nikon Coolpix B500.  I'm thinking about buying a DSLR.  Here's what I'm thinking about getting: Nikon D300 Nikon D300s possibly Nikon D700 (I'll have to save up) Now just out of curiosity, the price for the D700 is $565 on ebay.  I saw one on Amazon for $400.  I also saw a D800 on Amazon for $400.  Both were listed on Amazon as "like new".  Should I trust that?  I'm skeptical.  It seems too good to...

I capture time lapse video with my Nikon D800. I capture it into a 1080 24 fps video. I can set up the capture interval as I wish. If I capture it at 1 second interval, the video has 2x slower movement than that captured with 2 second interval. But sometimes the 1 second is moving too slow and I would like to speed it up. Is there a way in editing (I use Premiere Pro CC) to have the video skip every other frame?

I've been thinking lately, I wish my Nikon had an AF mode that worked just like Auto Area AF but with the following enhancement: If you hold down the AF-ON button (or keep the shutter release half-pressed) and manually turn the focus ring while doing so, the camera will autofocus on whatever object is closest to being in focus. In reality, if you turn the focus ring while holding down AF-ON, at least on a Nikon body with an AF-S lens, you just get manual focus override. That is, the camera...

I am planning to photograph the total eclipse in August. Even with appropriate filters on my 600mm lens, I'm concerned about looking through the lens or on the screen because I would be relying on the camera body to shadow the sun from my eyes. A tilt screen would help but I have the D800. Is it possible to tether the camera to a portable device. I would not be using the device to focus just to align. I am assuming that focusing on a distant mountain with F 8-11 setting would have the sun in...

I have finally given up on my Nikon GPS for my D800. Now the battery has died, besides the often very long time to get a fix. Have looked on a few apps for iOS to capture the track for later add of the gps position to the pictures (RAW or JPEG), but the ones I found needed LightRoom, which I don't have. Any suggestions for well working apps, where it is possible to automatically add the positions to a large number of pictures (on MAC or PC), have both? br Lars

So I bought the 3 piece set from yongnuo to use with my D800 and D810. The D800 has no issues whatsoever, however the problem comes when I want to use it with the D810. The 622TX does work. However whenever I just want to use the transceivers nothing seems to work at all. The flash does not fire from the hot shoe I really don't know why.

OK, lens question. I'm going to be traveling in a couple of weeks, and I'm going to be doing some serious landscape photography while I'm out there. My primary body is a D800, and I have a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 which I use for most mid-range things when I don't want to switch to primes (which I feel like I won't while hiking about, generally). I want to get a longer-range zoom as well, and will likely rent one off of LensRentals. But which one? I'm looking at the Nikon 70-200 f2/8 VR II and the...

Hi! I realize this is "yet another" this-camera vs that-camera thread.. But none of the ones out there (that I've found) seem to speak precisely to my situation. I apologize if this should've been posted to the general advice forum, but I wanted to make sure to get advice from Nikon FX folks. My current gear: D7000 18-55 DX kit lens 50mm 1.8D 28mm 2.8 manual focus And, anticipating my coming FX purchase, I recently ordered the 18-35 G. I have wanted an FX camera for years.... I once went to a...

Recently i have purchased a USED Nikon D800, Nikon 300mm F4 AF-S + TC 1.4 ii and I am practicing Birds in flight every weekend near my house which has a nice marsh land. Currently, I am only practicing using a Single point focus and trying my best to focus on the bird's eye as far as possible and I am getting decent results i.e., 1 out of 20. I am also trying various settings on Aperture/Shutter and ISO to have descent sharpness/freeze - learning.. Now my question - Would a 51 or 21 or 9...
