    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    on iPhone 10, I can change aperture. It's quick, it's convenient to use phones and for most of the general public that will do. for anyone else who appreciates quality a proper camera is needed.

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    I bit the bullet and ordered a Z50 last week (just have to wait for stock to come in before I receive it). For me I own a DX camera presently so lenses should work with this. Also I couldn't justify the extra cost for the XQD cards when I have so many SD cards already. And for a hobby...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    With smartphones cameras now so good, giving aperture and speed control why would you buy a camera? That said I’ve just ordered the Z50

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    anyone using Z50 yet? If so what are your thoughts? I am toying with idea of either a Z50 or Z6. Obviously Z6 will involve purchase of new cards. Main thing I am after is how is the quality of higher iso images (mainly in the ranges of 1600 to 6400)

    I’ve used them also for small canvasses but did order a 60cm aluminium plate from them last year. Quality and service is good. Of course not the best quality but for the price pretty good. 2 canvasses had minor damage and when I sent them images of that they sent me 2 new canvases within the...

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    But did you try the 850 also? I currently have a dx camera but iso capability(or lack of) is driving me nuts. I feel I am missing shots I could be getting if I could push the iso higher. The Z appeals to me at present more due to weight saving as long as IQ is similar to D850.

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    Thanks for that. It still seems less nosier than the other photo. ( only looked on my phone though). I am considering getting either a Z7 or D850 hence following this with interest.

    Nikon Z6 and Z7 mirrorless

    did you do any noise reduction with these? I ask as the last photo seems to show more noise at iso 8000 compared to the black and white one at iso 32000? also with focus - did you use manual focus or did auto focus work fine in these conditions?

    Beginner how to use spyder pro properly

    if I want to print like a photobook that would mean re-editing quite a few photos again! unless I can set a pre-set to make life easier?

    Beginner how to use spyder pro properly

    I normally edit at night. But room lights are 9 daylight LED ceiling lights so very bright indeed. Obviously without them on room is pretty dark

    Beginner how to use spyder pro properly

    Hi so I may edit in daytime in natural lights or at night using LED room lights. When calibrating we are first asked to measure ambient lighting and if I do so with either natural light or room lights, I get a message saying "too much ambient lighting". So how do we really have to measure this...

    Are cameras and menus too complicated?

    that's why you use AUTO settings as I see with most people who buy a DSLR as it will give them a better photo but they have no interest in learning photography.

    Beginner Which Nikon DX camera is better and why?

    Aha now that makes sense. But of course alternative glass/good glass is needed [emoji14]

    Beginner Which Nikon DX camera is better and why?

    Sorry if I’m being thick but surely 70-300 won’t give you the reach of 150-600 and being full frame won’t give you the “crop factor” zoom either so isn’t that gain in lightness offset against a loss of reach? I suppose if you aren’t going to shoot over 300 then it definitely is a gain

    Beginner Which Nikon DX camera is better and why?

    Is the D850 not heavier than the D500 and if so does that not offset advantage gained by using lighter lenses on D850? That’s the whole reason I was posing my question. ISO capabilities seem better and better nowadays but I’m not sure I’d want to shoot over a 6400 if I could help it. In terms...

    Beginner Which Nikon DX camera is better and why?

    Thank you. I’m just posing a hypothetical question and yes I genuinely want to just learn why some cameras are rated better than others.

    Beginner Which Nikon DX camera is better and why?

    I’m asking not to buy but just to learn why certain cameras may be rated better. My camera is 12MP and I’ve got some large quality prints which I’m happy with so I know Mp isn’t everything but just want your thoughts. Another scenario example: Assuming D500 and D850 were both either fx or dx...

    Beginner Which Nikon DX camera is better and why?

    How do you judge which is better? Is megapixels everything? D3500-24.78mp D7500-21.51mp D500-21.51mp I was wondering as most users seem to class the D500 as the best DX camera out there yet megapixels are lower than entry level D3500. Do you rate the D500 better due to its focussing speeds and...

    D500

    wow for that high an iso it's good. I have been thinking of upgrade from D90 mainly as I don't like the noise on that camera and while I was looking at the D850 I have also been looking at this mainly as I can use my current dx lenses.
