    Nikon D820 Wishlist by Nasim Mansurov

    My D810 is safe from being upgraded for the time being. I love to see progress, but more pixels aren't of any interest to me right now.

    A little love for the D200....

    I still have and enjoy mine, don't think i'd ever sell it as there is very little resale value.

    I'm in the same boat, hoping this is a great night sky lens.

    300/4 pf vs 300 f/2.8 VR1

    Lots of great info in this tread. I am looking for something to reach farther than my 70-200 VR2. I've always been interested on the 300PF for its size.

    Kodak might bring back Kodachrome

    I think beside the shrinking demand for Kodachrome, the other big issue is the environmental issues with the chemicals used to process the film. I'm not sure if they now have more environmentally friends chemicals to use.

    D800 focus point exposure bias

    If you haven't already, try and disable the matrix metering facial recognition in the menu (setting B5 on my D810). The metering will try and expose for faces when it detects them, I noticed this can cause exposure variance from shot to shot so I have it disabled, for example going from full...

    D810 with Black Rapid Strap?

    I use a custom slr glide strap with my D810, I often carry a 70-200 2.8 vrii hiking with no problems at all. I went with the glide strap instead of the black rapid because I like the lower profile of the connector and the neoprene material that has a little bounce making things feel lighter...

    Your experiences with DxO Optics Pro?

    I've been using it since I bought a D810 last spring. I really like it and I don't miss Capture NX. I do wish they would add some more editing tools to allow selective edits. Rumour is that they are looking to add more tools, maybe that why it is on sale now, they are due for a version update soon.

    What is best lithium or alkaline rechargeable batteries for SB-910 flash?

    I bought 16 of these Amazon Basics 2400mAh batteries and they work awesome and are cheap as well. I use them in my SB-800 and camera grips. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00HZV9WTM/ref=pd_aw_sim_23_of_7?ie=UTF8&refRID=1XCJDPQYKAYGXHTSWT2G

    The Pan Am games just finished here in Toronto Canada. I had a chance to get out to a couple of places and enjoy the sights. This first set is at Nathan Phillips Square in front of our city hall.

    How to tell if a charger is dead....

    Nikon chargers blink while charging, the blinking stops and the led light will stay on when charging is done. If the charger led doesn't ever stop blinking and stay on, then the batteries are probably bad. Batteries can take several hours to fully charge, try charging them overnight.

    D400 is coming for sure, Thom suggests

    I love my D810, but miss the loss of reach from my D200. I would love a high quality crop body 24mp+ to use for more reach. DX mode on the D810 is nice, but having a dedicated pro DX body would be a nice option.

    Can a lens induce Moire‘?

    Agreed, unless there was any focus accuracy difference (the tree trunk behind looks sharper on first image) or VR use on one and not the other.

    Upgrade to 70-200 f4 or f2.8 - seeking opinions

    The 2.8 versions will be almost the same in quality, with the VRII being a bit better in the corners in regards to sharpness and light fall off. Both of the 2.8 lenses will have the advantage of blurring out the background more than the 4.0 version when shot at 2.8. Your shooting needs will...

    Considering Wide Angle

    I was in the same situation as you a few months ago. I ended up selecting the 16-35 VR. I wanted the 14-24 2.8 as it would be ideal for astrophotography, but I knew the size/weight would be an issue when not using it for astrophotography. I will someday pick up a Rokinon/Samyang 14mm 2.8...

    Anyone had their D810 freeze up?

    I've noticed that when using the MB-D12 the camera will act funny when the batteries are just about dead in the grip. The camera seems to lock up, but really I think the batteries in the grip die before the camera can switch to the battery in the grip. I noticed this when I first got my camera...

    Thank you all for the compliments. It only lasted about a minute before the colours disappeared, but I'm glad to have captured it. Having a tripod would have allowed me to stop down some more, but the VR helped save the day.
