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...

The Nikon DF has no assist beam, I am examining the options of Nissin i60 , but I don't know if it has a focus beam.I ma also considering the Godox X1N controler but again I cannot tell from specification sheet if it has a beam. Can anybody had an experience with these two units.

We are Nikon shooters sharing Df, d500, d800. How can we separate file for each user in the camera at the least effort.? Thank you --'Photography is about feel of view, not field of view'http://brianduoccao.wixsite.com/cao-photography

Does the silent shutter mode mean that the shuttercount (and shutter wear) are eliminated? Now I use an old D2x for time-lapse experiments instead of my Df to avoid excessive shutter counts.

Camera: Nikon Df I removed the battery from my Df to charge it. I then looked through the viewfinder with my macro zoom attached to see how physically close I could get to a subject and still focus on it. I could not get the image into sharp focus! I thought it was my diopter adjustment so I rotated the wheel both directions but I could not obtain sharp focus.  What the hell?! I noticed that I did not see the black lines in my OVF (the one-thirds grid) and I remembered that it could be turned...
