    Nikon D7xxx owners thread

    Did this too, but not selling - it doesn't seem worth it when brand new UK ones can be had for £600. I'm also glad I didn't because I'm now thinking of going for the RX-1 instead of the D800 and keeping the D7000 for the things that need an SLR...

    Any FF upgrade regrets?

    I use the same lenses on D800 as I do/did D7000, both without grip. Still prefer the D7000 as it's smaller, but can't get the field of view + aperture combination I want with it which is why the D800's there. Balance is fine with both bodies without grip with anything from 50 1.8 (smallest of...

    Compact or Nikon V1, need advice.

    The V1 has the best continuous autofocus of any non DSLR. Can't go wrong with it if you're wanting pictures of running dogs. :)

    Nikon D7xxx owners thread

    You're probably pressing the shutter button too hard, which will make the camera rotate in your hands. It only needs a brush to go off, and you don't need to push the button all the way to get it to fire.

    Nikon D7xxx owners thread

    LENR reserves part of the buffer for the dark frame regardless of shutter speed, so turning it off adds capacity. So does Auto Distortion control (and that slows buffer recovery). But the biggest difference will be from getting rid of those Class 4 cards. They are far, far too slow if you're...

    7d II

    Yes I have, and it's smaller. Not by much, but it is. The 1D3 ends up 0.61x (0.76x magnification, and it's a 1.28 or something crop). The 7D is 0.63x (1x magnification, 1.6x crop). That's why I always find people talking about 1D finders being big hilarious. They're smaller than (7D, D300...

    The 1D3's viewfinder is smaller than a 7D's finder.;)

    D600 Hight ISO Samples

    Touché :lol: I didn't mean it in a bad way - whatever John does, someone is bound to complain that something wasn't equal enough or some setting changed or the lighting was different or a bunch of other things that short of testing on an optical bench can't be controlled (and if he did do...

    D600 Hight ISO Samples

    It's nice of you to make the effort, but I'm not sure why - most should know by now the only way to get better noise performance than a D600 is to get a D3s/D4/1Dx.

    Sony RX1 thread

    Indeed - as I said, the nearest competitors (D600/D800/A99/5D3/6D with 35mm zeiss lenses) are all around the same price or more expensive, and far bulkier. When I said downside was price I should have been clearer; I meant I don't have the cash to buy one without selling the D800 and 24. So it...

    Sony RX1 thread

    Very interested in this, downside being the price. The fixed 35mm isn't a problem as my walkaround lens is a 24 or 35mm anyway, the size is a massive plus, and I'm utterly indifferent to OVF/EVF/rear screen, provided the implementation lets me frame my shot and focuses quickly in both AF and MF...

    Canon 24mm TS-E V Canon 17mm-40 F4

    When it comes to architectural photography, the thing that makes PC lenses unbeatable at reasonable cost isn't a single shifted image (though that can be a compelling argument). It's the shift+stitch that really makes the difference - and you aren't getting that quality without either a fair bit...

    Does high iso capability really matter in RAW

    There's a component of noise that's called read noise. If a sensor has very low read noise that doesn't change much with ISO, then there's little or no benefit. If a sensor has high read noise, then there is a benefit. If it has read noise that falls with increasing ISO, then there is an even...

    Does high iso capability really matter in RAW

    On the vast majority of cameras it will be worse. On some it will be essentially identical (D7000, D800, D600, A99). It'll never be better.

    Nikon D7000 owner considering upgrade to a D700, need advice please!

    The D700 wasn't enough of an upgrade for me over the D700. the D800 is just about, and I can't see myself upgrading from is without significant miniaturization happening. that said, I'd rather have a d7000 and a bag of lenses than the 700 or 800 if I had to choose.
