    Sell my D7000 and pick up a D600?

    I moved from a D7000 to D600--very easy transition. They pretty much share the same controls and I love the U1 and U2 user settings. Getting the better ISO performance is worth it. I also feel like there is a bit more dynamic range and I'm more easily able to rescue my photos in Lightroom. The...

    upgrading from a D80 to a D7000. Questions

    I upgraded from a D80 -> D7000... SUPER HAPPY. The improved ISO performance makes all the difference for me. I also like the intervalometer, saved user settings, fast AF, and video mode.

    Domke F-3X?

    I like the F3-X. It's durable and looks great. The strap is probably one of the only downsides but that can be somewhat remedied by the bulky strap pad. I usually fit a d7000, 70-200, 17-50, SB-600/SB-800 and a prime.

    Tamron 24-70mm VC - $1300???

    I find it to be super useful when shooting low light stills. I would also want to buy one to help minimize camera shake when doing DSLR video.

    K20 Acura Integra

    Nice... but is the hood supposed to be slightly open or does it just not fit well?

    Anyone tried the stereo shotgun video mic on ebay?

    That's what I also ended up purchasing. It's pretty good (light, big upgrade from the on camera mic, and somewhat directional).

    Anyone tried the stereo shotgun video mic on ebay?

    Looks pretty much like any other DSLR stereo microphone. I like that this comes with an off-camera bracket. I bought one of these: "Azden High-performance(SMX-10) Stereo Condenser Microphone" and am quite happy with it.

    Best choice of lens for Nikon D7000

    My Tamron 17-50 f2.8 is still my most versatile and frequently used lens. Unfortunately, it has a lot of trouble autofocusing in the dark. I never had this issue on my D80.

    new d7000!!!

    Just got mine too. The High ISO capabilities of this thing are amazing. Huge step up from my trusty D80.

    Please help decide, D7000 with 16-35mm or 16-86mm

    I agree with boykee, third party walk-around lenses are pretty good. My first choice would be the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (maybe VC) and the second would be the Sigma HSM f2.8 OSM. I think 16-35 isn't a wide enough range for a walk-around. But that's just the way I shoot.

    D7000 Out of Stock

    My D7000 body only shipped today from J&R. Ordered and processed a few days ago. When I asked over the phone this morning, they told me they were getting another shipment by the end of the week.

    Tamron 17-50 BIM or not?

    The more I read into it, the more I like the Sigma 17-50 HSM OS. Focus speed and accuracy is surely better than the Tamron VC and Tamron BIM.

    Tamron 17-50 BIM or not?

    I've owned both and kept the NON BIM version. It's faster focusing. If I were in the market today, however, I'd look at the BIM with VC. Dunno if the newer models with the VC focus faster than the first generation BIMs.

    Some high iso images with D3100 and D7000...

    I too am impressed. My D80 is great, but this is a game changer for me.

    Laguna Seca Rolex Motorsports Reunion

    I went to the Rolex Motorsports Reunion on last Friday and had a great time checking out the vintage race cars. I've never shot moving cars before so it took me a while to figure out the settings to use for panning. Those old F1 cars are really hard to keep up with. Old 70-200VR did a pretty...

    This is exciting. It's about time! I also trust that Tamron will release affordable FX lenses.

    Still another dilemma 1.8 vs 2.8

    Tamron 17-50 and Nikon 35 f1.8 are my night lenses. I like how light the lenses are. I'd pick up a gorillapod SLR. If I had the 17-50VC, I might not even need the gorillapod. That lens is realllyyyy tempting me. I can't, however, give up the 17mm. Though it's a little slower, which is fine in...

    Question to people with this bag or similar: do you wear it over the shoulder or across the chest and why? Across the chest with this bag seems so uncomfortable. Thanks.

    My new Domke camera bag

    The 70-200 is my favorite lens by far (sharpness, bokeh, cool factor, etc..). Unfortunately, I rarely bring it with me if I'll be walking around because it's quite heavy. On top of that.. I think the Domke is really uncomfortable to carry around compared to bags such as the Tamrac Velocity 7X. I...

    My new Domke camera bag

    I just took this picture to show the bulge. Sorry I can't show the bag with my D80 in it (I only have one camera). I traveled with the D80, 70-200, Tamron 17-50 and SB-600. Everything was pretty quick to access and wasn't too heavy (I use the post-office style shoulder pad). Anyhoo, It's a...

    D300s & low light

    These things are always hard to quantify via forum responses. Check out the reviews/previews on They have a bunch of samples. The D300s is a worthy upgrade. Correct, the commander will trigger your SB-600 off camera.

    Just bought Tamron 17-50 F2.8 for $300.00 from Beachcamera on Ebay Refurb.

    My new Domke camera bag

    It's a VERY tight squeeze. I had to stretch out my lens pockets a little bit to get it to fit. The lens is really long and protrudes a few inches. The flap will "cover" it but there will be a huge and obvious bulge. It's really never a problem but because it's such a tight squeeze, it takes me a...

    Colorado Night Shoot

    Do you have photoshop or some kind of layering software? I'd recommend trying some post-processing techniques. You could try to take multiple exposures and use the different layers to selectively light your car. anyhoo, i like the pictures anyways. Black cars are esp. difficult to photograph...
