I get nothing in Windows Picture viewer or only a portion of the picture. I will be assuming the file format is JPEG. I will at some point refer to a shareware tool I wrote that can make repairs somewhat easier. But before I do that I'll show you how I repaired JPEGs with freely available software. So there's two issues here: File will not open at all; so ...

You'd need to check the files using something like HxD If files consist of only zeros they can not be repaired nor recovered. This is something that typically occurs when using a fake card (advertised capacity exceeds actual NAND capacity). If non zeros it may very well be impossible to repair the actual NEF files, but often a full resolution JPEG can still ...

Most DSLRs, when they roll over, will create a new sub-directory under DCIM, the naming of which often can be controlled by some of the configuration options in the camera menu, and then start over with images numbering from 0000 in that new directory. I don't use SnapBridge, so I'm not sure how to tell it to switch to the new directory, but I would guess ...

Portraiture is an art form and there are no rules in art, you are free to follow your heart. That being said, if you are doing portraits for a living, your goal should be pleasing your client. Likely what your client wants is an image that is a close match to what he/she sees in the dressing mirror. In other words, an image that approximates the dressing ...

Unfortunately, there isn't really any good prime lens that will work well for both portrait and landscape. The goals of the two tend to be mutually exclusive, so any lens you choose will either give you good results for one and poor results for the other or mediocre results for both. That being said, if you had to pick one of the two, the 50mm will probably ...

Oftentimes portrait photography and landscape photography are at odds, with portrait photography favoring longer lenses for good bokeh effect and landscape looking for wider lenses. However, for a good general-purpose lens for both types of photography, you can't go wrong with a 35mm. Get a fast lens (wider aperture)-- an f/1.8 or f/1.4, whatever you can ...

The moon is properly exposed at about EV 14 when it is more than 20° or so above the horizon. The rest of the landscape of a night-time scene is probably properly exposed anywhere from about EV0 to EV-3! That's a minimum of 14 stops and more likely 16-17 stops! No camera can realistically capture details of both at the same time. So you have to cheat! One ...

You need HDR(high dynamic range) photography. The range of brightness in your scene is too large for the camera to capture. The solution is to take more than one exposure, one set to capture the moon, one set to capture the dimmest things in your scene, and maybe some more in between. The camera may have a mode to do that (I have a P900 but have not ...

I agree that the PB-4 is sometime narrow and cannot be used with big cameras with integrated grip (professional SLR / DSLR). I found as well this interesting detailed article which explains the usage of modern cameras (like DSLR) to use with the Nikon bellows especially with the PB-4. At the end of the page, there is a section "The PB-4 compared to the ...

From the Nikon D3500 manual, page 209, Auto off Timers This option determines how long the monitor remains on if no operations are performed during menu display and playback (Playback/menus), while photographs are displayed in the monitor after shooting (Image review), and during live view (Live view), and how long the standby timer, viewfinder, and ...
