    70-200 f/2.8 VS 80-200 f/2.8

    I was seriously looking at the 70-200 but came back to my senses. I am not a professional but I love taking good photo's I could just not justify the cost. $2500.00!! Who was I trying to fool? Probably myself more than anyone. After looking around I come across the 80-200 (as you can tell I am a...

    My First Pro Glass

    I just took delivery today of a Nikkor AF-S 17-35 f/2.8 lens. This is the first Professional lens I own. This thing is awesome by any measure. The AF is just about instantaneous and as quiet as a mouse. I thought about the 16-35 but the bottom line is I wanted pro glass and the 16-35 is a...

    Software Changes on Windows 8

    I just recently purchased Microsoft's Surface Pro. It is about the same size as an iPad but much more versatile since it is running a full blown version of Windows 8. You must get the Pro version as the others run a stripped down version of Windows 8. It has an easily detachable keyboard. In...

    Tamron AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2 (Model A17)

    I recently purchaed a D600 and the only FX lens I had was a Nikon 50mm 1.8. Great sharp lens! Since I wa close to broke at this point I needed an inexpensive zoom to cover a lot of situations. I own Tamron 28-270mm but it's a DX lens. After shopping around I ran into the lens in the title. It...

    D600 or D7100 Purchase

    I think I have made up my mind and will be going for the D600. I know I eventually will move to full frame so why get the D7100? Might as well just jump in with two feet. I know all about the great features but being able to use a DX lens and the camera automatically moving to that format kind...

    Bums Hotel

    I went to this ababdonded old paint factory with my son. He sometimes uses this place to make movies. What do you all think?

    Camera Choice Dilemma.

    Please bear with me. I really do not know what to do. My son is a freshman at SVA (School of Visual Arts in NYC, NY). He is interested in film editing and this is a great well known college for that kind of stuff. He has a crummy camera that does HD Video and uses it quite often. I just...

    Uploaded a few pics to my gallery

    How Many Photos?

    Is there any way you can tell how many photos were taken on a D7000 body?

    Using Manual Mode

    I am starting to use manual mode and I can see how much better it is creatively. I am also able to get sharper images by using a faster shutter speed and bumping up the ISO. The D7000 does extremely well with the higher ISO settings and using 3200 ISO is no problem or even much of a compromize...

    Upgrade to D7000??

    Here is a quick shot with the D7000, Tameron 18-270, and SB700. I did not spend a lot of time on it but hopefully I will be able to put some more of an effort getting it right.

    Is this normal?

    I just noticed that when I turn my D7000 off the control panel on top of the camera remains on for about 60 or so seconds. Did I make an inadvertant menu change or is it something I just never noticed in the 10 days I have owned it?

    I'm Loving' It!

    So today is the second day with my new D7000 and am absolutely ecstatic. After getting my head around some of the essential features I am amazed by how easy it is to make tweaks and changes to settings. There are no IQ issues compared to the 25mp of my D3200. Even when doing some cropping it is...

    Braketing Frustration on New D7000

    I bought this camera yesterday and one of the main reasons was for it's bracketing abilitty. The problem is I just can't get it to work. If I set it for Multiple Shots than I am unable to set the braketing by pressing the brkt button. If I turn the Multiple Shots off I can set up braketing but...

    Upgrade to D7000??

    I am a bit of a newbie to photography albeit a quick learner and currently own a D3200. It's a great camera but there are some features that I would like to have access to. Bracketing and Commander Mode being two of the biggest. There are loads of other features I would like to try out as well...

    Just Purchased an SB-700

    So far so good. I will probably spend the rest of the day reading the large Owners Manuel and experimenting. A lot to learn for a newb like me but it's a blast playing with this. Since my D3200 does not have commander mode someone here explained how I can use the pop up flash to trigger the...
