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 ...

As no-one else has mentioned it already... Lightroom is fine. It can convert raw images. Does a reasonable job of them. Got a copy, use it periodically. But I've never been able to get images out of it that match what I can produce from Capture One from my Nikon or Olympus cameras. Back to back conversions on the same file, experimenting with all sorts of ...

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 ...

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 would check how your YN-560 is seated on the flash hotshoe. Inside the rails of your camera's hotshoe, there should be a physical switch that tells the camera when an external flash is mounted, and this should prevent the pop-up flash from popping up. If the camera isn't getting that signal, the switch could be stuck or broken, or your flash may not be ...

The Nikon internal flash is supposed to popup if camera is in Auto mode, anytime when the system thinks flash will be helpful. It Never pop ups in camera A, S, P, or M modes, where the user opens the flash door to use flash, and user does not open door if not wanting flash (user control). But Auto mode pops open the flash. However it should not popup if ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

While there is a colour profile selection in ACR which mimics the manufacturers profile no settings will be picked up from RAW file and be reapplied to make the photo in editor look similar to JPEG of camera. It happens so because manufacturer settings are often too special and follow no standard. While being technically possible it is rarely required by ...

Since you are interested in ratio between capacity of batteries you may switch automatic standby off in you camera settings and let the camera display some image on screen for prolonged time (preferably uniform so that you do not observe temporal fixed image afterwards). Measuring this time is another task. Alternatively, you may setup interval shooting ...

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 ...

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

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 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 ...


6

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

I found the passage below in the Reference Manual and was wondering if the problem might be that I did not set the interval long enough to allow the camera to record some images to the memory card: “Because shutter speed and the time needed to record the image to the memory card may vary from shot to shot, intervals may be skipped if the camera is still ...

Use AE-L/AF-L button. go to Custom Setting Menu -> Controls -> Assign AE-L/AF-L button and set it to AF-ON. Now point your camera towards your object and half press the shutter button. Once focused press AE/AF-L button. focus will lock.

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 ...

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 ...

Nikon D750 is a full censor DSLR camera ie 35mm. this 35mm censor is meant for vedio recording purpose. while going for video recording you can only reduce ur shutter speed upto 1/30 is will cause problems of under exposure. so the best way to do this is, please the continuous shooting mode in ur STILL OPTION & then stitch it to a vedio using ADOBE AFTER ...

I use an 8Gb Sandisk Ultra II SD card in my Nikon D40. I have had no problems with this.

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 ...

I give you a simple instruction, set 2sec for the interval time and then set the other parameters as 9999*9 no need for further calculation

I had the same problem in my D5100. I just changed my focus mode from "MF" ( Manual Focus) to "AF" ( Auto Focus).

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 sounds like what you did inside the bottom cover only solved half your problem. You can now advance the film, but the shutter button (or linkage between the button and the shutter) seems to still be stuck in the "fire" position. Given the price for this body is quite low on the internet, is it possible to fix it myself so I don't have to send it to a ...

Your 18-55mm kit lens and a circular polarizer filter(maybe a grad ND) will get you in the general area of this type of photography. The biggest challenge in my mind will be the right conditions and vantage points to capture the images from and not the gear.

you need a wide angle lens, which from what I can tell are all over my budget If the lens you need is outside your budget, consider renting from a place like LensRentals.com instead of buying. You can get the lens you need now for a few weeks. You can get a decent 3rd party wide angle lens (like a Sigma 8mm f/3.5) for a couple weeks for around $100. ...

Looking over Jimmy Chin's website gallery for adventure photography, I'd say most were taken with wide or ultrawide lenses, and that's most likely what you're looking for. And as you surmised, those are outside your budget. So, I'd recommend saving up and increasing your budget, if you can, or you'll just have to wait and see if Nikon comes up with an ...

You can run the camera directly off AC power with two pieces of gear. You need a camera-specific "dongle" that basically fakes being the battery in the battery compartment. This then connects to the other part you need, which is the AC-to-DC adapter. For the D3100, you need the Nikon EP-5A power supply connector and the Nikon EH-5b AC adapter. According ...

I use dcraw -o 0 -D -T -4 This preserves the 12- or 14-bit integer pixel values exactly as they were recorded in the raw file, without any processing or rescaling. (Thanks to Patrick Hurley) I saw it in your other questions that ultimately you import the data to Mathematica. In Mathematica you can import a raw file directly as Import["something.nef", ...

Based on your question at Mathematica.SE I assume that you simply summed up the integer values for each pixel in the raw file, and the total was greater than what you assume to be the number of incident photons. First, how do you know what is the actual number of incident photons and are you sure your estimate is correct? Assuming that your photon count ...

There are several things which one should take into account to answer this question: no camera may generate 1 electron per 1 photon across wide range of wavelengths. Example of monochrome IR-sensitive sensor efficiency. Bayer colour sensing camera is based upon generating less photons in response to certain wavelengths. Spectral response of D3 with IR ...
