    Fine tuning focus on D800E with Reikan FoCal

    Matt I just tested my D800E with several lenses using the FoCal Pro version software and I am very happy with my purchase and the results. The D800/E "requires a Manual Settings Change Mode", but I found this was really a non issue. The software can't automatically change the fine tune...

    just got my 300 2.8, have a question

    As Roy indicated, when the case is used with a 200 f/2 you would would put this black foam piece on the bottom/floor of the case and then this shorter lens would fit properly on the top of the case. Alan

    Newbie Flash Question about SB-800

    I have a SB800 which I have virtually never used. I decided I better learn how to use it or sell it. I read through the manual, and tried it on my D3s with my 24-120 f4 lens. Tried taking many pictures last night with it set to TTL. It seemed to be set up right--at least recognized the ISO...
