Sorry it might not be the correct forum.... but this is the only forum group I look at, having a Df and D850.  I also have a Nikon SB-700 with corroded battery contacts which I frequently have to clean with vinegar to make it work.  I realize perhaps vinegar is not ideal either, as it may cause more corrosion.  Is there a permanent solution to this?   Can I send it to be repaired? Is there any other option, other than buying a new flash....?

Hi everyone! I have been using a D600 for three years and I love this camera price/quality ration, probably the best ratio in all (I mean ALL) Nikon cameras. Now the question is : I though about getting rid of my second camera (D7000) and give the place to the D600 so I can get a better one as my main camera. The bigger issue I am trying to address with this "upgrade" would be ISO related. I want a bit better performance and less noise at 3200/4000/5000 ISO. Apart from that, I really love the...

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...

I'm not sure if ML-L3 will work with DF. What else is available? I don't need anything fancy. Just want to release shutter for family pictures..  --ThanksJemini Josephhttp://wildbirdimages.com/

Sorry if these are basic questions. I shoot in RAW with a Df and process in Nikon View and Capture (the latest versions). I also use the Nikon SW to convert to JPG for upload and email. I took pictures at a nighttime outdoor event last night, but because it was quite well lit with outdoor floods, and I was using f1.4 wide open, I didn't need to go above ISO2500, as low as ISO1250 for some (using 1/125s mostly) Even at these not very high ISOs, I was surprised at how much chroma noise there...

Hello, I connected today my 35mm Sigma ART and I realized immediately that something was wrong as I couldn't change the aperture. It also does not focus.  I connected to my Sigma USB dock and the dock does not recognize it either.  The lens has been sitting on my shelf with no bumps or drops. I used the lens less than a month ago and it worked fine.  I tried to connect to my Nikon Df and Nikon 850.  I also cleaned the connection to no avail.  Anyone have any ideas what's going on or what to do?

I was just listening to a well known photographer doing a lecture on camera basics.... it was said that because the camera used was a very high resolution camera with so much information in the picture, an aperture of f5.6 is the same as f2.8 on any other camera with less resolution/less information..... This sounded strange to me..... is this actually so?   It doesn't seem likely to me that the focus plane changes because of the amount of information the camera can take?  Or am I not...

Hi all,  Just shot a wedding with the Df, had focus issues because though I have the camera set for 39 points, there is only one dot to focus with (hope this makes sense).  Short of going to manual focus, is there any way to get more than one dot to focus with?  Thanks

Howdy folks - trying to get into doing timelapses of stars but I'm finding my images pretty noisy. I'm wondering if its my technique or what so would welcome any comments. My last attempt was in my backyard last night and can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2wrzrRel4w. It looks ok don't get me wrong but I've done a fair bit of noise reduction on the frames and when you go frame by frame there is a bit of ugly purple noise clouds etc swimming around. Any comments on stuff other...
