Well mine is having a holiday in the Norwegian fjords very soon so will get a bit of a workout. Decided on the lenses to taken, that will be Nikon 24-70 f2.8, the Nikon 70-200 f2.8, Nikon 50mm f1.4 and my camcorder. taking the 50 mm lens as it is more descreet and obviously lighter. Might even sneak in the Nikon D800 as a backup camera.
AS we are sailing from Southampton got no luggage amount worries that you get if flying.

checking up my 70-200 mm lens wasn't insured so got onto the insurance company and added it before the trip. Next year already booked for Japan, be interesting doing a comparison with our China trip we did a few years ago

Won't put up photos as they were taken with the D70s and no thread for that model

Great image, I would love to see those conditions in the lakes.

Another one from Cornwall, Sennen Cove.

Bazza - the issue is that you are uploading full size images. They are showing smaller in the thread but if you click on them they are huge.

I have stopped coming on this thread if I am at home as it crashes my ipad due to the size of your images unless I mess around in another browser.

I find uploading the full size images to Flickr and then linking a smaller version to the thread works best for me. People can look at the image in the thread and then click on it and see it in more detail on Flickr if they want to.

Dave.

Nothing wrong in posting photos for monitors with a large screen. How on earth can one even think about doing any editing with some tiny hard to see viewer.. I don't use flicker



blow this up to 500 more and it is rubbish. Even this size has no detail. To show off ones work properly the photo should look to the viewer as if they are there when taken. . Basic rules of photography
I see no reason in posting anything above around 2048 pixels wide on any forum. That is around as large as most can display. I really don't think posting 7360 pixel wide images is helping anyone?

This has nothing to do with editing - it has to do with the size of image you are uploading - it is a full size file straight from the camera.

Here is a screen grab of the top left corner of one of your images when I click on it - it may have a bit more compression from my downloading / re-uploading - but it has a lot of artefacts on the original when I click on it

I am not sure that is the type of quality you are after showing to people?

Bazza - I am trying to help show you that there are better ways of displaying images to get the best quality from them.

It is obvious from your posts that you want the images to be seen as high quality as possible but they are not coming through like that due to compression on the jpeg and then the forum doing its own compression as the images are so big.

My intention was not to upset you or to stop you posting / have you remove images :(

ok better I did not post any more photos.

Please don’t take it as we don’t want to see your images, we want to see them but due to their file size it’s just giving some of us issues seeing them. I can understand wanting to have them viewed at the best quality you can but that doesnt always mean the largest size possible is needed to do that especially for the internet. Someone who has more knowledge than me will likely be able to help with export settings for different web uses. Most of my images for web use are between 800-1024 on the longest edge.

Neither was mine.

Question for you guys.... my macro lens is a Simga 180 f3.5 EX.... I bought for my D3, no problems and it also worked well on the D7100... Wind on a few years and now I have D500 and D810.... lens refused to work on both bodies on Saturday (first time attached) but after a while the lens started to work on D500, and subsequently worked like a dream... attach to D810 and nothing, no life. no AF switch on the lens BTW.

what am I missing? I spend spounds on the guide and they tell me nothing....

When was the last time you used it when it was working? First thing I’d try would be to clean the contacts.

Probably 2016, it works ok on the D500, just attached an AF-S 300f4 D to the D810. I cannot see anything in the settings that would prevent AF. The manual focussing ring turns as it should..:confused:

So before when you said there’s no life with the D810 is it just AF, or does the lens not register on the camera and you can’t change aperture etc?

lens does register, aperture apparently changes when turning one of the wheels on the body....hmmmm. A sign of a great camera is being able to pick it up without referring to the manual but I think I am have to do the unthinkable......thanks Toby

As mentioned, sounds like a possible firmware issue. I’ve only heard of older Sigmas not having AF in live view though but worth looking in to.

I have recently updated the firmware on both cameras. Sigma (rather excellently I think) have already come back to me and indicated that it is most probably firmware. Odd that it only affects on camera, and the older model too....

Thanks guys
