I need some input please on a camera for my wife. My wife is thinking of getting a small camera for travel and take-with-her-everywhere use. She currently shoots a D800 with 24-120mm f4 lens, which is quite bulky and heavy to lug around (and she refuses to remove the battery grip!), and she has been eyeing my much smaller and lighter X-T1 and m43 gear that I use for travelling. On our last trip she used my X-T1 + 18-55 and quite enjoyed the EVF with WYSIWYG feature, as well as the smaller...

I set the function button to BKT, but this seems to have no effect. I still need to do everything with the dedicated BKT button on the top of the camera.  Any ideas? I want to be able to shoot a braketted shot on the fly.

when I use my Nikon D800 with my SB-900 on camera I get good results in ittl out doors but as soon as I use Nikons creative light system off camera I get very inconsistent results normally It causes such bad results. I have used my friends camera and his speedlight SB700 and still we have the same results. My question is would we get better results if we used a itll cable sc- 29? Thanks, Jonathan

I am using a Nikon D800 and Nikon lenses I am preparing some photographs for printing. My software NX offers a limited number of crops but they cover all the size ratios I need. My question is can I use say a 4 x 3 (1.33 ratio) crop and then send it off to the printers for a 16 x 12 (1.33 ratio) print. To put it simply can I crop to a ratio and ignore the size that gives it. Thanks

Is there a way to achieve this? It's annoying when it takes a few shots to remember that I changed the exposure compensation last time. I know that it's possible if you use easy exposure compensation but I'm unable to do that because I use easy ISO.  Any advice gratefully received.

Hi all, I've a d800 + 70-200 vrII. After be part of the group "what-lens-must-I-buy-after" I decided to stop buying and invest in a couple of photography courses (just a comment, totally recommended, I'm a gear lover, but it's great to go deeper in technique and just listen photographers and disciplines). The issue is that I'm used to manage manually all the parameters (speed, aperture, ISO) and when I want to take the standard pictures of my son playing football (soccer), I'm sure camera can...

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...
