I have another thread on here about tips on taking photos at a basketball game and it reminded me of a question that I had previously when I was taking shots at a soccer game during the summer. I first tried taking some shots in manual mode with my Nikon D90 with ISO set to 100 (it was a nice, sunny day), aperture at it's widest for the lens of f2.8 (I used a fix 80-200 f2.8 lens), and adjusted the shutter to get the exposure meter to the center. The results were decent shots but they were...

My Daughter has her first 'gig' - shooting a girls basketball team in exchange for getting her high school volunteer hours. The team and Coach know that she is an amateur so there are no real expectations - but she wants to do a good job. I will be accompanying her as 'backup' and support/advice. We have a Nikon D90 and an 80-200 f2.8 push-pull plus a 50mm f1.8. I figure the stock 18-105 will be useless. Looking for some tips for shooting action shots in a gym with what I'm assuming will be...

There is probably a very simple answer to this, so I apologize for wasting everyone's time but: Went old-school for fun and picked up a D2H. Liking the images, but there's a noticeable spot in every frame so I've thought to clean it's sensor manually. I lock up the mirror and get met with another buffer. I've cleaned Nikon sensors many times on the D90 and D700 and never ran into this before. I noticed the same happens with my D800E. I'm sure it's a very simple reason, but how do I get this...

Just a couple of days ago, I asked whether it's good enough to stick to just a 18-55 lens because I want to cure GAS... Wells, I've been doing some research into the XF50 F2 too and I'm now wondering if it will complement the zoom lens, given its larger aperture especially at the wide end. Before my GR, I had occasionally paired an 85 F1.8 with my Nikon D90, so this could be my resurrection attempt at taking portraiture shots, in a significant (and conscious?) shift away from general...

I'm sorry in advance if this has been discussed anywhere or is a very easy fix: A few months ago I got a Rokinon 8mm Ultra Wide F/3.5 Fisheye, knowing that it will produce a full circle image on CMOS sensors, and a 180 degree spherical image on APS-C sensors.  I tried it out on a D90 and really enjoyed the results.  I recently purchased a D500, and it's great, of course. I went to use the fisheye on the 500 and the image was not cropped the same as the D90 though they are both APS-C. The edge...

Hello, My wife and I are planning a cruise to northern Norway in winter to see the northern lights. Interior of the ship will likely be around 75 degrees or so, but exterior could be zero degrees. I'll be carrying my camera between these two environments frequently, so here's my question: With the rapid temperature changes between the inside and outside, how can I deal with the condensation issue? Will condensation form inside the camera body and/or lens? How damaging can this be, and is it a...

As far as I can tell, my Nikon D90 is working just fine.  The camera was introduced in 2008, and I think I bought it in about 2011?  I just checked the number of images and it is 34,218.  I am thinking the camera is "good for" about 100,000 images, but I am wondering if I should have it serviced/cleaned at any kind of regular intervals? I have cleaned the image sensor myself from the menu on the camera, and I am not noticing any defects in the images, but I want to be sure it is in good shape...

I am new to my D850. I own a D610 and D90. On these bodies, I configured Easy ISO so that my thumb dial could change ISO while in Aperture mode. On my D850 can,t find this. Although the ISO button is easy to reach, I wished that I could program it as such ... anyways it not doing anything otherwise !!! Tks --MaxMaximeGoussePhoto.com

This is sort of a lengthy question. I have been asked by my local drama club to take some black and white head shots of the actors in a play they are putting on. These will be for the printed program. I've been asked to put them on a thumb drive so the printer can print them. The printed images will be no larger than 2 inches by 2 inches, maybe a bit smaller. I will use a Nikon D90 and a 50 mm 1.8 lens. I have a suitable backdrop or background and will shoot in monochrome mode. My question is...

(Cross posting from the Fuji SLR forum to get a Nikonian perspective)  I currently have a Nikon D90 and the Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8 and 50mm f/1.8 prime (older, non-AFS lens) as well as the much older 18-70mm kit lens from my D70. I love the 17-55 f/2.8, but it is a beast of lens. It's such a beast that you'll get a barrel shadow when the on-camera flash is used. It's just a damn heavy kit, but the images are outstanding. I teetered in the mirrorless waters with a Lumix GM1 a few years back. The...
