    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    I didn't miss the point at all. Just pointing out that some 'improvements' don't really add up to much in real world use. I think it's helpful to understand this. The OP is on a limited budget; a cheaper cam will allow for more money to be spent on lenses etc. A 'better' cam will perhaps give...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    Specs are touted to sell cameras, but I think it helps to see what makes any practical difference, and what doesn’t, though. Better ISO range (12800 vs 6400) 1 stop. Useful if you shoot a lot in low light situations. Better metering (91,000 pixel RGB vs 2,016 pixel RGB) In camera light...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    Nikon did a sensor clean/shutter replacement service FoC, for any D600 owners. This was because SOME D600s had an issue with oil getting onto the sensor glass. I never bothered cos mine was fine. The D610 was introduced with an 'improved' shutter mechanism that apparently eliminated this. D600s...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    After all I've said regarding the D600/610, I'd echo that, unless you can get a new D610 really cheap. But then; I wouldn't pay too much for a D750, seeing as it's now a 5 year old camera. Which doesn't mean it's 'crap' ( ;) ), just that something like the Z6 will be a noticeable step up from...

    Camera collectors; fave cameras- what's in your 'museum'?

    Nice! Some examples of results using the kit! Great stuff. Love that shot of the match. I once saw a studio photographer swearing at one of those. He couldn't get it to do something right. Just as well he didn't try using a Mamiya RB/RZ. :eek:

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    My point is; notice how he words his comment? 'X is good but Y is better'. That's all anyone needs to say. There's no problem you relating your own personal experience, just accept that it's only that, and that others have differing experiences. Someone might be on a tight budget, and claiming...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    Read this: See, I agree with that. Whatever your own personal experience with YOUR camera, doesn't make that particular model or make 'bad'. It just means YOU had less than satisfactory experience. Someone could just as easily turn round and go 'the D5 AF is great, the D750 is crap'. You see...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    Lol! I do a lot of shooting in dimly lit venues. The D600 has never let me down. And I’m proper fussy about sharpness. Perhaps you need to learn how to use the focussing system properly. My new Z6 has superior focussing in ultra low light. But then I can’t see in such conditons anyway. But to...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    Sorry, but for all the fairly good advice in this post, there's also some utter rubbish, such as this. The D750 is slightly better in the AF dept, but the D600/610 is still pretty good; I know, so actually use a D600 in some pretty demanding situations. I've also tried a D750, and the difference...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    There was a reported issue of oil on the sensor, with SOME D600s, for which Nikon offered a service to fix. Hasn't affected mine in nearly 7 years. The D610 has had the potential fault fixed, so praps the better choice if you're at all concerned. Definitely a camera worth considering; the D750...

    Nikon Advice...D5600, D7500, D750 or D500?

    What about a D600/610? Full frame, compatible with many older Nikon lenses (works perfectly with AIS MF lenses, and screw drive AF lenses), excellent sensor, better than DX especially in low light. Handles really well with the MB-D14. S/H prices for a good one will leave loads more for other...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Well, I haven't used the f2.8 version, but the f4 'kit' lens is, imo, superb. Really sharp, less distortion than you might expect, and nice and compact. Makes for a small, light little combo for travelling about with. Personally, I wouldn't pay the extra for the f2.8. For a 24-70mm range, IBIS...

    Nikon F3HP - best SLR of all time?

    This annoyed me so much . Batteries would cost loads, like a tenner or more! Then last just a few rolls, it seemed. One reason I preferred the Nikon SLRs of the 90s, was that the good ones at least, mostly took AA batteries, rather than expensive and sometimes hard to find lithium etc ones. I...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    It's an uncertain time for retailers. Stock just sitting there, doesn't pay the bills. Flash sales for certain items, helps stimulate interest and traffic, and hopefully sales. Losing a few quid on some stuff, but hopefully selling other stuff as well, so that a turnover is maintained. Z6 + 4-70...

    London Self Isolating

    Went out on Sunday, on the bikes. Parts of the West End were like a ghost town. Haven't seen Central London so quiet on a Sunday, since the 1980s, when shops didn't open on Sundays. The only shops that did seem to be open, bizarrely, were Primark and some posh watch shops. Strange combo. Can't...

    Camera collectors; fave cameras- what's in your 'museum'?

    No it doesn't! :LOL: I had a Canon strap lying around, so I bought an EOS 1 and 50mm f1.4 lens, to go on it. :thinking: Don't. I really, really, really must not get into buying Leicas. I put a bid in on an old IIIc the other day, then forgot to check back. It sold for even less than what I...

    Camera collectors; fave cameras- what's in your 'museum'?

    You don't HAVE to buy anything (Says he who's just bought a waist level finder for his Nikon F4...)! But I know; I've spent far too much over the last year, on stuff I absolutely don't 'need', and it can get out of control. I need to build a display cabinet, and then limit myself to the space it...

    The virus. PPE

    Do you have 100% proof of this? No; you don’t. Here, is the difference between FACT and OPINON. Unsubstantiated opinions are what creates fear and hatred. ’Almost certainly’. Let’s wait until it is 100% proven then, eh? So far, this claim is unsubstantiated by actual science and scientists...

    The virus. PPE

    Seeing as how not even the scientists (from all over the globe) have definitively identified the actual source of the initial outbreak, I’d hardly say the Chinese government are ‘in denial’ about it. You comments say more about your own paranoia and ignorance than anything else. And what...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Every now and then, there are 'seasonal' discounts. Loads of Nikon cameras and lenses were selling at discounted prices in January; I got my 50mm f1.8 Z lens for £349; it's now £529. This seems to be a 'flash 4 day sale'. It will stimulate interest and generate a sudden surge of income at a time...

    How do 'we' know this? Because 'they' tell us? How is SK any more trustworthy than China? What about the USA? Their government lies all the time. So does ours. Our government lied about WMDs in Iraq, and over a million people have been killed in conflict across the Middle East. Etc, etc, etc...

    MPB - Very Poor

    Bought a few lenses off MPB,and they've been good each time, except for a 70-200mm Nikon lens I bought; the one I 'bought' was described as 'near mint', but the one I actually received was nowhere near that. In fairness, they did sort it out and exchange it for me, for one that was 'near mint'...

    Beginner Lens confusion - DX or not DX

    With Nikon, you can override the DX crop with DX lenses, to use the whole of the frame with a DX lens on an FX F-mount body. I used a Tokina 11-20mm zoom on FX, and whilst the image circle diameter was insufficient to cover the whole frame at the wider end, by 16mm, it covered the whole frame...

    Nikon D600 / D610 Official Users thread - Anything D6x0 related

    I bought a D600 in 2013, to replace the 'starter' D200 I'd bought s/h a few months previously. It's been an amazing camera for all these years. I bought the Z6 for a smaller, lighter option, but the D600 is still just as capable in most situations, other than very low light, where the Z6 has the...

    The GAS confessional - all who suffer are welcome. :)

    Bargainous Canon EOS-1 HS, with a 'faulty' (only works in AF) 50mm f1.4 lens, which was also very cheap. Why? Well, someone on here was banging on about the EOS so I thought I'd better see what the fuss was about. Plus I had a Canon camera strap lying around that someone gave me, so thought I'd...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    What I meant was, that the 24-70 is such an excellent lens, that to have just that wouldn't be a hardship for me. I've always been one to work within the constraints of the equipment I have, rather than worrying about stuff I haven't. I learned on an old simple Praktica with a 50mm lens. I think...
