The main fundamental thing to get used to is doing the crop math in the other direction with FX lenses. What you're used to seeing as 50mm with your crop body, on full frame, will look like 35mm on your crop would. Having all your glass get wider is the first disconcerting thing you think you're prepared for, that you really really aren't. Particularly when ...

After some quick research on Amazon.com., these lenses are designed to fit on the front of a lens attached to the camera, not to the camera itself. They attach via the filter threads on the inside front of the lens. Your Nikon 18-55mm and your Nikon 55-200 mm probably both have a filter size of 52mm. They would both fit the 52mm 0.43x wide angle converter ...

Focal length is never adjusted for crop factor, since it's a physical property of the lens. It doesn't change just because you put a bigger sensor behind the lens. So, a 10mm lens on your Nikon 1 would still have a 10mm focal length on full frame. What would change, if a 10mm Nikon CX lens worked like a Nikon FX 10mm lens, would be the field of view. ...

10mm is 10mm. Focal lengths of almost all interchangeable lens camera systems are expressed in the actual focal length of the lens.There are certain technical reasons why this is so, but the simplest is that a lens' focal length is defined as the distance from the film plane needed when the lens is focused at infinity to cast point light sources as a single ...

D750 won't output video at higher resolution unless a hack or firmware update are released D750 does most probably use line skipping and it seems that even Panasonic GH4 (or other camera with full sensor readout) may produce image with fewer noise (if D750 skips 3/4 or 2/3 of lines which is not improbable) even at the same F number and with bigger ...

The two lens set, along with the three filters, is composed of adapters designed to screw onto the front of an existing lens with 58mm filter threads. They are not intended to be used as standalone lenses. You would presumably use the wide angle adapter with your widest angle lens (in this case the 18-55mm) to convert it to an approximately 8-24mm lens. You ...

The Nikon AF 70-300mm F4-5.6 ED D was a fair lens back in the day, but the problem you'll have now is that it's not an AF-S lens -- meaning it doesn't have an autofocus motor built in -- and will therefore be manual-focus only on the 5300.

This answer actually applies to any camera. It's not immediate, but is guaranteed to be effective. Pick up camera. Create a series of photographs you think might work. Later, review those photographs and decide which you think did work best. Thr next day or week, go back to step 1. Repeat 1-3 until you feel comfortable. Over time, look again at your ...

Really you are making two transitions here. From a D3200 you need to accustomed to a pro body with dual control-dials, more direct controls and a 100% coverage viewfinder. This would happen if you are to move to a D500 or D7200 instead too, even though these are APS-C cameras. While you can probably ignore the extra buttons ;) it is best to get accustomed ...

Try gaffers tape if you never need to change the diopter. Set it and tape it down. I keep gaffers tape on the bottom of my body to protect it and usually a small piece on my lenses to tape the focus down for night photography and time-lapse.

No, there is no practical way of deducing one of images from "multiexposure" serie which results in single file.

According to the manual the D810 has one SD slot and one CF slot. XQD cards are not on the list of tested and approved cards. From the Nikon site http://www.nikonusa.com/en/learn-and-explore/article/i7rd4235/what-is-xqd-and-why-should-i-use-it.html XQD is a media card format that was designed to be a successor to the CompactFlash card. XQD has been ...

According to Nikon's support page, Approved SD cards for D40, 4 GB is the highest-capacity supported SDHC cards. And note, "Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation."

It seems to me the bad design is hanging the camera from a part that was not designed from which to have the camera be hung. Have you tried a strap that hooks to the parts of the camera that were actually designed for a strap? A tripod socket is generally engineered to handle compressive forces. That is, it is designed to hold things up (E.g. your camera ...

Short Answer: No, I do not believe you can force the camera's spot metering point (which is the focusing array's central focus point, proved below) to become visible while spot metering and using the auto-area AF mode. To find out more about how I came to this conclusion, continue reading. Long Answer: I was recently wondering how spot metering worked with ...

Do you have "Auto Dx crop" enabled? If so, try disabling the "Auto DX crop" setting. Photo Shooting Menu > Image area > Choose image area > Auto DX crop. Change Auto DX crop to Off (if it's On). You can still manually change the sensor area between Full and DX, and even assign that setting to a quick menu setting so it is easier to access. As Mike Sowsun ...

I use a Tamron 16-300mm (APS-C lens) for travel, the flexibility is really good. The lens is obviously a compromise, and it's a very slow lens. But as a one lens for all purposes for travel, I can't thing of anything better (or I haven't tried any lens that fits me better). You can see some video reviews here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LudX0GmLZQ ...

Do some math: If you took a picture on your 35 mm and you cropped, lets say the width: 50% you need a 70mm lens. 75% (leaving just 1/4 of the total width) 140mm (150) lens. And so on. But if you are not cropping in exact proportions all your photos you need a zoom lens, for example a 70-200mm or 55-200mm. Look for a good quality one or you will leave ...

With the 70-300mm, I guess I could take pictures of the moon or any other close up objects 300mm doesn't really get you close enough for the moon. You could use a teleconverter, but you'd either have to get a third party one or make warranty-breaking modifications to a Nikon one. However, you can get some nice wildlife pictures at 300mm, particularly ...

As the question you've linked to says, this is a limitation of the camera. A workaround would be to flip the lens into manual focus after you get what you want with the focus-and-recompose method. That's an annoying extra step, but at least it will work.

No, you can't. To quote from v5.0 of The Other YN-622C User Guide II, page 20: The Canon YN-622C is NOT compatible with the Nikon YN-622N. The camera codes are not the same. This actually makes sense when you consider the completely different pin/contact arrangement on the hotshoe and the inevitable differences in signal protocols. The only way I ...

From the D7000 manual page (link to manual), you can read page 105 : Spot: Camera meters circle 3.5 mm (0.14 in.) in diameter (approximately 2.5% of frame). Circle is centered on current focus point, making it possible to meter off-center subjects (if non-CPU lens is used or if auto-area AF is in effect, camera will meter center focus point). Ensures ...

All of the linked images appear to have camera motion as a factor in the overall sharpness of the image. They also seem to demonstrate the result of fairly aggressive noise reduction which can reduce the detail in an image. What shutter speeds were being used? What ISO setting was selected? Was the camera on a stable mount or being handheld? It appears the ...

The dial doesn't lock on either of my Canons but it's not easy to knock. It's also quite easy to see the position so maybe you need to mark yours with a spot of paint. That will tell you if it's off and allow you to set it back to where it should be.

From the manual, page 33: Choose from the following focus modes. [...] Manual focus followed by some pictures showing how to select a specific focus mode which I'm not going to try to reproduce here, but the steps are basically: Place the cursor in the information display. Display focus mode options. Choose a focus mode.

Testing optical performance of lenses requires knowledge and an optical laboratory. Subjectively, looking at the results obtained via the images you have captured, which may raise your index of suspicion about the performance of a lens so tested; may only point you in the general direction of disappointment with performance. In general terms, it is usually ...

The D3200 User Manual says: "Selecting live view in "Auto" or "Flash disabled" mode enables automatic scene selection (“scene auto selector”) when autofocus is used." (Page 20) Can it happen that you are in either of these, and not in P, A, S, or M? Also, Depending on the scene, exposure may differ from that which would be obtained when live ...

Remember that a true weather sealing is stamped with a certification grade like IP 67. Unless you have this kind of statement, the "weather sealing" remains more or less a marketing argument saying "we have added some more sealing gaskets but you still use it under the rain at your own risks", because it does not say how much it is sealed. It gives you no ...

I believe the answer to be simple. Nikon does not warranty their product if it is used in the rain. I have a few Nikon DSLRs and I love them. But, for rainy conditions, I purchased a Pentax K-50 touted by Pentax to be weather proof. I also have two weather resistant (WR) Pentax Lenses. Don't sell Pentax short. Look at the features. I have used the Pentax ...

This is a very old question but it remains relevant so I'll add my 3 cents. Lightroom's white balance presets seem to be just ballpark figures not tuned to any camera-specific properties. The best way to get Nikon/Canon/whatever-like rendition in Lightroom is described here and here. Basically: Take some photos with your camera using built-in white ...
