I'm new to Fuji. I was lucky enough to get an X-T2 with a 10-24, and 18-55. I'm used to shooting with a single card on Nikon (current body D800), capturing RAW.  I was intrigued by the ability to capture both RAW and JPG with the Fuji, but I'm not sure how useful that will be. In my first shot (click here ) , I capture both formats, but I imported (into LR CC 2015.7) only the RAW.  I'd like some suggestions - what formats do you capture (and why) - and how do you incorporate them into your...

This happened about a year ago when I bought the Nikon D800. I have CF cards from my D3, so that was not a problem. But I didn't have the SD card yet. I had a 32 gb microSD from one of my laptop. The card was functioning fine, normal in the computer before this. In a rush to test if the camera's SD slot worked, I put the microSD to its adapter and inserted the card into the camera. I formatted the card with the camera and started to take some pictures writing both to the SD and CF slots. I...

Hi! A colleague was quite impressed of night sky shots I took with my K3II. She is amazed of the astrotracer capabilities and really considering getting a Pentax K-1. She is aware of the AF capabilites, and she also owns a D500 for action photography and a D800 for landscapes. She is a very experienced photographer. So she told me that wants to renew the lansdcape equipment and was asking me about adding the K1, as I said was amazed about Astrotracer on K3II. She would want to be below 3k usd...

I have a question regarding the 'technique' required to get sharp photos with the 5d4. When the Nikon D800 came out with it's 36m sensor there was a lot of talk about pictures that were not as sharp as they should have been because of the high megapixel count and the user not having good technique-not being able to hold the camera still enough. Now with the 5d4 having 30m is anyone running into this problem?

i'm looking for a kit to take with me while traveling. My current kit consists of 2 D800 bodies, a Nikon 24-70 f2.8 and the 70-200 f2.8 VRII.  I also have a LUMIX FZ1000. I've decided on the Fuji xt2, but I'm stumped for lenses. I can take the easy way out and start off with the 18-55 f2.8-4, but I'm not sure if that's the best combo.  As you can see from my equipment list I'm partial to fast zooms, but I wanted this new kit to be lighter for travel. I was thinking of getting a set of 3 fixed...

I was shooting a few days ago and one of my files was captured as a black and white JPEG. I shoot RAW. No setting change. Just a single JPG. Has anyone ever experienced this? Heard of it? I hope it isn't a sign of a coming breakdown. ~Thanx

Hi everyone, I have a couple of questions about the D800. This is my first FX camera, but my 5th Nikon DSLR. I really love it (although it is very heavy) I have a very good understanding of photography, and have been at it for the last 20 years, but for some reason with the D800 when I shoot vertical, I just can't get sharp images, in fact, they are worse than not sharp, they are just a blur almost!! Very frustrating when I paid so much for the body and lens. The lens I have at the moment is...

Hi, So I just got 2 Yongnuo YN622N transceivers, a YN622N-TX Controller, and a YN-568EX II speed light to go along with my Nikon D800 and Nikon SB-700 speed light. I appear to have everything connected properly (YN622N-TX Controller on my camera, SB700 and YN-568EX II connected to YN622N transceivers and on stands, and everything fires!). So far so good. However, the controls on the YN622N-TX controller don't seem to affect anything. I'm shooting in Manual Flash mode, but shouldn't the...

I use Nikon D800 with Nikon 70 - 200 VR lens. I found that the image is hazy. Looks like it is overexposed. I don't have similar issue in 14 - 24mm and 24 - 70mm. Is there anything wrong with the lens? This is a random shot and directly converted to jpeg from raw. No tripod, no VR turned  on, focal length: 200mm, focal mode: AF-S, aperture: 4, shutter: 1/1000, exp comp: 0, metering: matrix, iso: 100 I can almost fix it using PS dehaze but I am concern that if I get a bad copy. Thanks! -JP
