OK thx, but let's specifically compare AF, D750 vs D500, in 2 scenarios:
Scenario 1. sport (or wildlife) shooting: acquisition and tracking.
Let's say f/2.8, ISO 1600 and above, 200mm and above.
I understand D500 AF precision clearly wins in this scenario.
Scenario 2. paper-thin DOF with...
OK, IQ is significantly better with D750 / low light.
But how about AF precision? Acquisition, tracking, pinpoint accuracy at 1.4? In challenging conditions? Isn't D500 significantly better in that department?
Thanks, do you have any links to some of these products?
I forget to say, I assume this commander can control Nikon flashes (SB-600, SB-800 etc)
I found a Yongnuo trigger (37$), but it seems it doesn't control Nikon flashes, just Yongnuo?
Also, here is an Odin trigger, but it's 280$ , even...
Since D500 has no built-in flash to serve as a commander for an off-camera flash, what are the cheapest viable options to fire off-camera flashes from D500?
Nikon or third party.
Nikon SU-800 is an option, but way too expensive, when we consider this function is already built-in in cameras...
Yes, 85 1.8g is sharp, but rendering of bokeh/3d/transition from sharp to soft areas does not quite match the existing 85/1.4 models IMO.
For my taste, just somehow fails to obtain that sweet magic that can be seen on many 85 1.4d / 85 1.4g / old Sig85 photos.
The old Sig85 exibits that 3d...
Interesting to hear. While D7000 is, obviously, 2 generations old, I still consider it a competent performer. A "huge performance gain" with a D750 sounds promising, especially the low light stuff.
It is in low light, with large aperture primes, that I find D7000 not 100%...
The gentlemen. Mind you, the naming issue is here just for fun.
The real question is: is D500 a signal that Nikon is to keep DX line as a viable high end alternative to FX, or just a single, last model in a dying line (high end DX).
I used D7000 and D80 (similar to your D90) in a number of sporting events.
Did pretty well with both of these.
Of course D7000 is better, but not miles better. Biggest difference was IQ at high ISO (1600-3200); it just allows me to capture some nice photos at ISO3200, where D80 would choke at...
Yes, new DX models will come, but I'm talking about high end DX, not just any DX.
It might well be that, with time, DX line would be limited to max. D7xxx / or D5xxx / or even D3xxx level.
Evidence so far suggests that Nikon wants all "serious" shooters to go FX way, and keep DX for...
By naming the new camera D500, Nikon might be sending an implicit message that this is the last pro body in a DX line:
D400: intentionally skipped
D600/D700/D800: already occupied by the FX lineup.
The naming suggest there is not much room left for the continuation of the pro DX line :)
9. As every athlete knows, a competition is not only a battle against one's competitors, but in the first place, a battle against one's self.
Pictured is Anyika Onuora of Great Britain (400m).
10. Natasha Hastings, winner at 400m
11. High jump competition was won by a recent world...
Athletics meeting IAAF World Challenge Zagreb 2015 was held for the 65th time on 7 - 8 September 2015.
As usual, many top class athletes participated, with a number of new meeting records being set.
All photos taken with D7000 + 70-200 VR1 or Tamron 17-50/2.8 (wideangle shots)
1. Shot put...
So just to confirm, you find D750 AF clearly more reliable & superior to D7200 AF in less than ideal lighting for sports shooting?
This is a valuable info for many sport shooters, who might be tempted to choose D7200 over D750 for its "reach" and price, combined with good AF reputation.
I don't shoot JPG but RAW with D7000, processing them with Lightroom, and never experienced issues with skin tones.
Maybe the problem is in the built-in JPG engine, but I have no experience with it.
Some of my examples (converted RAWs):
OK, so D750 has a -3EV to 19EV AF detection range.
D610 has -1EV to 19EV AF detection range.
Obviously, D750 AF can work in 4 times darker conditions.
But what exactly is -3EV? Or -1EV or whatever EV? How dark is that?
I see it is usually declared as "-3 EV at ISO100".
11. A devastating backhand in progress: Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain
12. Marcos Baghdatis, an ex-Australian open runner-up
15. Garcia-Lopez was determined and unstoppable this week:
18. Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, Zagreb Indoors 2015 champion.
8. The tournament attracted some of Croatia's past tennis stars, including Ivan Ljubicic ...
9. ... Boro Jovanovic (1962 Wimbledon doubles' finalist) ...
10. ... Bruno Oresar, Slobodan Zivojinovic of Serbia, and Goran Ivanisevic (2001 Wimbledon Champion)
OK thx; this excerpt suggests that a stored AF FT value would be applied to any, say, 50/1.8G lens connected to a particular D7000 body, i.e. AFFT value would not be limited to a particular copy / serial no. of a lens.
This makes sense, as Nikon probably (correctly) assumes that users...
