    Vietnam Veterans Day 2023

    Thank you for the info. I had no idea there was a day for Vietnam Veterans. Back at the time they finished their service, they weren't treated well, and their medical issues weren't addressed well. Many Vietnam Vets don't even want to talk about their experiences or be recognized which is a...

    Many times while searching online, I've been directed to one of the discussions on their forum. Other than that, it wasn't a website I visited. However, there was a lot of helpful, informative info being shared there.

    Memory Access Lamp remains on even when power off and card removed

    Peter posted this a while back. It seems to be more of an electrical reset rather than the type of reset Nikon offers to reset the camera's shooting menu back to default. I used this myself when the shutter button on my first D7200 stopped autofocusing (it got wet during a snowstorm). This...

    Character Animator

    Since I've been out of commission after having rotator cuff surgery 2 weeks ago, I've spent time putzing around. A few days before my surgery, I set up an iMac - switched from a PC so it's a new operating system for me. When installing Photoshop, I noticed something called Character Animator is...

    What to do with AF Nikkor 20mm f2.8 which has developed a haze?

    If the lens works fine and only has haze, the lens should be able to be taken apart and the lens elements cleaned.

    Cause(s) of soft images

    When you view the images on the back of the screen after taking them, a red square will show the focus point. The square will still be there even if you take a number of pics and go back through them.

    Cause(s) of soft images

    I don't have that body, but on my DSLR's, there is an option for the focus point to be illuminated during playback. If you have that option, consider turning it on. I've been surprised with my own where I put a point directly on a face only to have the dot display next to the face on the brush...

    When I did my AF calibration, I printed out Steve Perry's chart. The chart is in this link.
