Certainly it is possible to take great photos with a P500. You need to understand its capabilities and limitations, but that is true of every camera. It is an older generation megazoom camera. I had two older than that and now have a P900, which is a later generation where the lens goes out to 2000mm effective instead of the 800mm of your P500. There are ...

There are probably several things going on here all at once that can each contribute to the variability you have noticed. Aperture positions are not exact from one frame to the next, particularly with cameras that use mechanical linkages between the camera body and the lens to set the position of the aperture diaphragm, such as the vast majority of Nikon F-...

The cameras produce different results because you're using the same raw processing settings for cameras that have different sensors and processing pipelines. You need to tweak the settings to match the camera. To improve highlight detail: Don't increase the exposure setting so much. Increase shadow and highlight recovery. This should work if the detail ...

I think my camera has a setting where each time you take a photo it changes some settings (aperature, shutter speed, ISO) so maybe yours does too?

Thanks for the advice. I will check again the latest software updates for the flash and camera. However, I will not be able to do it until the end the June, because I do not have this flash with me. I hope your advice will be helpful. Below you can find the full email I received from Nikon Europe support. Case #: 04476320 Subject: Nikon D7500 with SB-900 (...

The last thing you should do when an electronic device, such as your D4, gets wet inside is power it up. Instead, you should remove all power sources immediately and not provide any current to the sensitive electronics until the device has been thoroughly dried for several days. Impurities in water (yes, even rainwater has impurities in it) will conduct ...

You should have removed the battery as soon as your test showed something was wrong. You may have electrolytic corrosion on the circuit boards in the camera. Removing the battery prevents electrolytic corrosion. You need to dry out the innards of the body. Remove the lens, remove the battery, and open the battery compartment. You can put the body in a ...

I have transferred it to the card I am not sure if this part is done in the right way. If you don't know what you did, how are we supposed to know in order to help you? In general, firmware update files should be decompressed (i.e. unzipped or extracted) on the computer before transferring them to the memory card. When placed on the memory card they should ...

You're mistaken. The SB-900 is fully compatible with the D7500. Just because the flash doesn't do what you think it should do does not mean it's not compatible. Miscommunication between the camera and flash means that you could have the flash mis-seated in the hotshoe; the contacts/pins might be broken/dirty, the wires inside the flash might be broken; or ...
