    Beginner Nikon AF VS AF-S VS AF-P explained?

    AFAIK; all 'G' designated lenses are AF-S. IE they have an internal focus motor. But yes; the older AF and AF-D lenses don't have the internal motor, so won't AF on the D3500. Aren't Nikon wonderful for making things so simple for us? (Looks wistfully at Canon...)

    Beginner Nikon AF VS AF-S VS AF-P explained?

    Pretty much yes. To confuse things further, there are also AF-I lenses which (I think) would also work but don't worry about them. Get either an AF-S or -P version, with the VR.

    The death of analogue photography.

    Actually, returning to Mr McCluhan; when he said 'the medium is the message (or massage...), what he meant was how a message is relayed via a particular medium; with photography, it's all about the type of lens/angle of view, using DoF for effect, maybe using motion blur, use of colour or B+W to...

    Beginner Nikon AF VS AF-S VS AF-P explained?

    They are simply terms for AF systems; AF-S stands for 'Auto Focus Silent wave motor', and AF-P is 'AF Pulse motor'. Basically just marketing terms really*. AF-P lenses are supposedly quicker at focussing or summat. Both types will work on your D3500. Yes, Vibration Reduction is very useful...

    The death of analogue photography.

    Hmmmmmmmm....... That's a very interesting statement. I think Mr McCluhan might have had something to say regarding that. I do get what you mean; that sure it should be the image that we focus on, in its own right, but then I do think the medium is important; if I look at early photographs...

    The death of analogue photography.

    I was trying to work out my photography expenditure over nearly 30 years, and what I've had to spend on stuff to enjoy digital photography, far outweighs what I ever spent on film photography. I'm gonna need a new computer soon; that's going to be north of £3000. But I dunno; what about a pro...

    A big film scanner thread

    My longer term plan is to buy a new Mac anyway, put the old Mac into service as a server, and hopefully use the remote desktop facility to login to the old Mac under the older OS. That should be possible. Anyone got any experience with Silverfast?

    Yes I think the simple answer is to use an older OS, with the original software.

    Lockdown Boredom and Old Manual Lenses

    Has anyone used Leica M mount lenses on a Nikon Z cam, via adapters?

    Yeah I didn't think it was suitable for my needs. Would be good to find summat that actually works though.

    What if I did speak Turkish or Urdu? What about Turkish and Urdu? What's wrong with speaking Turkish and/or Urdu? Do you really mean 'are you brown'? You do, don't you? At least have the balls to admit it. "Yeah you're hard we get that." No; I'm just not a paranoid racist who thinks this is...

    You're actually quoting a racist website to prove your point? Really? REALLY? Wow. "Bradford in England is a No-Go Zone for certain ethnic groups and the city is heading toward disaster, councilors have warned, citing attacks on a synagogue and white businesses in allahuakbar areas."...

    Lol! Are you serious? Ha ha! I live near those areas, and have been through them, after dark, many many times. There are risks, but they aren't that bad compared to what some places used to be. You must just scare easily. Now I know you're having a laugh. :LOL: Ooh, ooh! I know! Budleigh...

    None of those areas would faze me. Iselworth? Are you having a laugh??? It's a quiet suburb! :LOL: I grew up in the East End of London mate, in the 1970s and 80s. I've lived on one of the most deprived estates in Europe. Nowhere is a 'no go area' for me. Or indeed anyone. This is the UK ffs, not...
