I notice the new update has an interval timer setting. However when you input your settings and hit start it locks the menu dials and doesn't allow you to adjust iso or shutter speed until the sequence is complete. If shooting a long time lapse it would be nice to be able to adjust exposure accordingly . Anyone know a workaround to unlocking this feature ? Mike

Hey guys, I'm really new to the world of Sony and it's Mirrorless Full-Frame cameras, so a little help would be most appreciated. So I've decided that after 3 years, I just don't want to lug around my albatross, aka Nikon D800. Between the body, the grip and my 24-70mm lens, I always have neck pain when I'm done and I'm only 37. It's a true anchor. That all being said the image quality was why I stepped up from my Nikon D7100 and I was never disappointed. While I'm not a professional in the...

Hi everybody, So i'm planning a trip where the temperature is going to be a bit cold and snowy. I'm going to take my d800 with me but i want to buy a prime lens that is "weather" sealed. Do you guys have any suggestions?  I tried to find lenses that have weather sealing but it's harder then i thought. Regarding focal length anything between 24mm to 100mm is fine. Going to hike so the lens must be able to survive, i am not worried about the camera that much(should i?), have the battery grip...

I dropped off my D800 at the Nikon Repair Center in LA during a recent visit. I want to call someone there at the site.  The fax and 800 number they make public are all located in NY. Does anyone have a phone number (a person's name would help, too!) for the actual repair center office?

I don't know anything about video. I'm a complete newbie. Never use it.  I wanted to take a simple video with either my D800 or D500 tomorrow.  I tried both of them and both turned out the same way - with jerky movement. The D810 has a CF card / Sandisk Extreme Pro 160 MB/s UDMA7. The D500 has an XQD card, Lexar professional 2933 X 440 MB/s. Frame rate is set to 60P (not sure what that means?) Any ideas why I can't get smooth video? Wrong cards? Settings issue? I posed this on the Video...

I am not familiar with the different kind of output media format and need some help. The source is usually video from the camera, the Nikon D800, and now the Sony RX100M4. I created sequence 1920x1080, 23.xx fps. So far, I have been sharing my video thru YouTube only. My file format is the Vimeo 1080HD. The YouTube video seems fine. If I want to show my work on a TV, what format should I output the video? Should I leave it at H264, high bitrate? Also, I've found the quality of the USB memory...

Now I am official owner of a Nikon D800 and Sony RX100IV. I maybe shooting footages with 2 different formats. The D800 produces 1080/24p with 12 Mbps bitrate. The Sony produces 1080/24p with 17 Mbps or 24 Mbps (AVCHD format). If I want to bring both of them into Premiere Pro, is it a problem? Can I mix different fps footages?

Or both?  I had a chance to buy an older Nikon 80-200 f/2.8 (2 ring version) for really cheap from a reputable store. The overall condition looked ok, so I did some real world test shots.  The focus seems to be hit or miss. I cannot tell if it is my technique or the lens has focus issues (or both!)  Any critique is appreciated. My first thoughts are shooting at the longer edge of the zoom + wide open gives me a razor thin DoF, but it shouldn't be this thin that 1 eye is out of focus and they...

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/
