Hello, I have been going over and over this for about six weeks now and still I can not decide which way to go, a question of "stick of plunge" . For quite some time now my two main landscape go to lenses with my D800 are the 85mm f1.8 AF-s and an ancient AIs ED 180 f2.8, I mainly take Landscapes of Wild Wales, both have served me extremely well and manual focussing with the 180 has never been a problem, I can not remember the last "out of focus" shot with this lens and its glorious colour...

I have a decision to make and I'm having trouble getting good advice. I bought a brand new AF-S NIKKOR18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens a few months ago ($750 new) but was just given a damaged AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8D IF-ED for free ($2,000 new). In perfect condition, obviously the second is the better lens, and since they two lenses serve basically the same function for me, I'm trying to decide which to keep and which to sell. The 17-35mm lens was given to me used. It's about 8 years old and...

I received my used Nikon D800 on Friday and am very pleased with it. Absolutely proud of it. I've brushed the dirt off it and its looking quite "not bad at all". My worry is the 19 449 shuttercount; can this possibly be correct? Is it possible to modify a camera's shuttercount in any way? I am quite pleased with what I have - for < USD 1 000 - but is it possibly too good to be true?

Hi, I've spent hours reading articles and watching youtube videos and I still don't feel like I have a grip on shooting fast moving action - feeling a bit overwhelmed with how much info there is out there, and was wondering if anyone could give me any direct advise on my situation & gear set up! To give you a bit more info on where I'm coming from, I'm a studio photographer shooting on a Nikon D800 with 2 Bowens XMS750 strobes. I would like to be able to shoot some fast moving elements (ie....

This post follows on from an A9 and A7Riii comparison post by getagrip15. A good thread with interesting responses. I'm fortunate to have an A7Rii and probably the main thing that I don't like is that it takes maybe 3-5 seconds to zoom into 100% in camera if I want to check areas of focus following a shot. I'm not sure if this is called blackout or buffering. Previously I had a Nikon D810 and it was pretty well instantaneous. With my photography I expect to crop up to 30% (change of aspect...

Has anyone else had auto-focus issues with a Nikon D500 when attached to an ancient Nikon AF-S Nikkor 400mm f/2.8 DII prime lens (non VR)? The lens will autofocus when attached to my D3S or D800 bodies, but when attached to my D500, it will do one of two things: Either the autofocus works a few times before becoming non-responsive, or the auto-focus doesn't respond at all. I have to disconnect the lens from the D500 in order "reset" the strange behavior. Same issue occurs in Live...

Hello. During the last days I had the opportunity to play around with an old Nikon D300. Besides the heavy weight (I'm a m43-user most of the time), some features caught my attention. But I am not sure, if these are exclusively implemented in the Nikon pro-style bodies like D300, D700, D800,.... or if they can be found in other bodies too. So please D600 and D750 owners, could you tell me, if the following features are in your camera? 1. When in manual mode and ISO set to "Auto", exposure...

I had a chance to take a few videos with the Nikon in the last couple of weeks. I am discovering that it has a lot of positive features that can add to my more video robust Sony RX100M4. First off, the sensor on the D800 is phenomenal. It is clear and sharp. The battery life is a lot, a lot longer than the Sony's. Then the major thing is my lenses investment. I have some quality glasses with great range. I have the 20mm f/2.8D, the 35-70mm f/2.8D and the newly acquired 80-400mm AF-S ED. The...

I have a Vello Free Wave Wireless Shutter control that I use on my two full frame Nikons. a D610 and a D800. The D800 requires the Ten Pin Cable. When I attach it to the camera and turn on the camera, the shutter goes off  on continuous before I even attach the wireless unit. The Vello devise works perfectly on the 610 with its respective cable.

Only occurs with 50mm lens. Have tried AF1.8 and 1.4, same issue. No issues with AF-s 28-300. When the lens is locked at f16 the aperture won’t change in any mode using the front dial. The display says its changing but through the lens it’s dark (f16) and although the camera tries to focus the shutter won’t release. I’ve set the “aperture setting” to “aperture ring” and that now allows me to control the aperture manually and able to take photos. Previously just getting “fEE" when set to...
