Can put the Profoto AirTTL on camera hot shoe to TTL and HSS the Profotos and also connect whatever other flash to PokcetWizard, Attached one PocketWizard to SyncPort of the camera.

I think the question is mainly about performance of various lenses. Set at 18mm your 18-105 will shoot the same field of view as the 18-55 set at 18mm. However that does not mean the pictures will come out the same. Generally speaking the 18-55 is a sharp lens across the range it servers (I dont own an 18-105 so I cant really comment). A lot of people really ...

Yes, it is a good idea to use the configuration you describe for mirroring/backup. The general algorithm is (unfortunately) in many models single-threaded in its storage part (IOW from step3 onward) and is as follows: The picture is shot and is placed in camera's internal buffer in a queue structure. The storage's subsystem I/O listener checks if the ...

I'm guessing, I don't know the internals, but stop and think about it... The camera clearly already has the file buffered in its memory, from which it writes the first card. Why would it would it take the time to read it back (to write the second card), when it already has it buffered in memory? It is possibly multi-threaded, and writes both at the same ...

Nope. You may want to follow this location for any 3rd party firmware updates for that feature besides any Nikon updates for that model. But in the meantime, your best bet is an external lightweight unit that can be taped to the drone. Here's one helpful guide.

Lightroom has tethered capture, but now it is only available through monthly/ yearly subscription. $10 a month for the latest lightroom and Photoshop. At $600 for just PS (when you could buy it), it's a good deal, and you always have the latest version of them both. Both of them are very handy, PS is dang near indispensable.

If these are Leica-M mount lenses, then you cannot adapt them to any dSLR mount. The registration distance (how far away from the image plane the lens has to be held) is much smaller with rangefinder lenses than SLR lenses. You'd end up interfering with the mirror path if you jammed the lenses far enough into the camera for the lens to achieve focus to ...

This depends on what kind of bayonet or screw those lenses use to mount on a camera. Basically you should look for xxx to Nikon F adapter, where xxx is the mount type used by the lens. You will likely need a correcting lens adapter, since the Nikon has the longest flange distance of any camera manufacturer and focusing to infinity becomes practically ...

Yes you can, in full manual mode on the D5200 you can use Time mode which is a shutter setting in full Manual mode to do so. You will need to click the button once to open it and again to close the shutter. The full reference manual even suggests using the ML-L3 specifically (page 60).

Google Picasa's site says that Picasa can organise and manage RAW files and has basic codecs to allow for previews but it is stated that Picasa is not advanced enough to support the editing of RAW formats and other post-production software should be used. This explains why RAW file formats do not display correctly in Picasa. The only solution, really, is ...

It is supposed to always work. The battery is the first thing to check, try recharging it, but maybe you already have. If it does not turn on with a fresh battery, then it sounds like it needs service.

First, try something like a Giotto Rocket blower. They shoot a very powerful air stream. Hold the body with the lens mount facing down so anything you knock loose, falls out. I just bought a K screen for my F3 from KEH. BGN grade, because $7 was more to my liking than $17. It had a noticeable spot on the lower (contoured) surface, the one you're not ...

the DX sensor is not the issue, I have a D3300 and I use old manual Nikon lenses all the time with no issue. There could be a few things that are the problem. First off unless you know the history of the lens (you have always owned it) it could be damaged. The elements could be miss aligned or the mechanisms are not working properly. As such the 100mm ...

Resolving a steady i.e. non-blinking "green light of death" Nikon D7100: After removing then reinserting memory card with (by mistake) camera on: green light stayed on and screen remained blank on the top of the camera no matter what I did.

I'm kind of confused by your question. The YN-568EXII is Canon-only. There is no Nikon version. And e-TTL is Canon's flavor of TTL. The Nikon version is i-TTL. If you're trying to shoot with Yongnuo's for-Canon gear with a Nikon camera, you cannot get TTL or HSS on the hotshoe or on radio triggers. You can only get TTL and HSS through CLS (Nikon's "smart" ...

Use a Yongnuo 622N-TX transmitter on the hot shoe of your camera and a Yongnuo 622N trigger on each of the 568 EX II N flashes. You can also buy them together in various combinations of 622N-TX and 622N units. You could use a 622N for the transmitter, but the settings are nowhere near as intuitive with the 622N (no screen, just status lights) as with the ...

What you need to start is camera, lens , memory card and case. I buy from B&H, almost all body only come with SD card, extra battery and a case. The camera will come with some kind of software to at lease get you started. You need DX lens sense your camera is a crop camera. You won't find a 35mm 1.8 in DX. I would recommend the 18-55 to get you started. ...

Sounds like you just need a new battery: They all eventually need to be replaced. I have had good luck with Wasabi brand batteries for Nikon DSLR. The current firmware for D5100 is a couple of years old. Nothing newer is available. https://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783/~/current-firmware-available-for-nikon-products


0

From the description you've supplied it looks like your battery has failed and needs replacing. The easiest way to test it is to find someone who has another d5100 near you and try your battery in their charger / camera. The d5100 is a very popular body and it is likely that someone you know has one (or another camera that uses the same battery.) Li-ion ...

Definitely purchase a UV filter to protect your lens. It's much easier to replace a damaged filter than to have to replace your lens. A UV filter, as opposed to a plain glass "protector" filter, has the added benefit of filtering out UV light, which will help reduce haze in outdoor shots. And, DON'T buy a cheap filter. Most of the "starter" filter sets are ...

The only use for a UV filter for digital cameras is to protect the lens, although there are mixed opinions about the usefulness of that. I do use a UV filter for extra protection, also to protect the lens from moisture. The lens then has to be cleaned less often, therefore it will accumulate scratches less fast. Now a few scratches won't affect image ...

Simple answer: No, you don't need a UV filter. There is no particular reason to use one... film was quite sensitive to UV light, more so that the eye, so when shooting film a UV filter did something useful. Digital sensors are different in this respect, less sensitive to UV, so a UV filter is irrelevant. All you are doing with a UV filter is to stack up more ...

My tip would be to buy a external flash with a remote trigger. If you can afford a TTL one, fine, if not a manual one. I also bought 2 sets of rechargeable batteries. This will open you to the world of controlled illumination. Then, if you want, you can evolve into this path. If not, at least you have some basic gear for portraits (as a main light or fill ...

I did some research on flashes. Im not a pro or living on profits from photography. I have the Nikon D5200 with an assortment of lenses. I wanted the Nikon SB-910 but it was way out of my justifiable price range for a hobby. However, I found a clone of the SB called a MK-910 by Meike for $103 which is lot cheaper than the $550 option. I ordered the ...

Application dependent, the "economist" appraises the added utility for every dollar of added cost as per the Law of Diminishing Returns, and you should never, moreover, neglect to factor the deferred compounding, and likely re-sale or depreciation, again, depending on what you're doing and how bad you need those features that push the diminishing returns ...

In Aperture Priority mode, you set a chosen aperture and the camera will automatically match the shutter speed so that a correct exposure is produced (according to the metering mode). The exposure indicator will only be shown if you apply an exposure compensation (hold the +/- button and rotate the command dial). By default the exposure compensation is set ...

It sounds like you are not waiting for the camera to get a focus lock before fully depressing the shutter - as per taking normal photos you need to HALF-depress the shutter, wait for focus (at your desired point) and then fully depress to start the timer. If you are struggling to find a focus point at your desired distance, you could always use manual focus ...

You don't need CHDK to accomplish this. I was doing it ten years ago with my little Powershot A520. Including live view and tethered capture using the free Canon CameraWindow software. And it doesn't even support CHDK. You can find Canon point and shoot cameras pretty cheap used.

The best way is to contact either your lens manufacturer or local Camera Repair shop. Often the manufacturer can help you track down a replacement part and order allow you to order it. You could then attempt to replace the part. Sometimes the band slips over however sometimes it requires you to disassemble your lens which isn't recommended! Alternatively ...

This is now fixed in one of the recent (this week)'s windows updates. Just do a Windows Update, restart your PC as prompted to ensure installation, and try again. You will see that the issue has now gone away. Many people, including me, are reporting this problem. See Window 10 and Nikon D7000 dslr on Microsoft's support forum. It appears to be a ...

Can you use it? Of course... no one would stop you, but if you mean what results you'd get, odds are the film will be darkened along its edges by light leakage, and there may have been some chemical reaction with the air. If it is monochrome film, though, and the camera was not subjected to high temperatures (over 25 C) or high humidity, the film may work ...

I have those ghost-pictures like this, if I use VR-ON with D5300. Try only to use VR with longer times than 1/15 in normal case. I have trouble with this camera when using shutter speed between 1/80 and 1/250. I've posted some pictures demonstrating this here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3815060?page=6#forum-post-56228683
