    D500 AF-C stuck

    Thanks Rick! That solved the problem. I guess I should have read your thread before posting my own. Like you, I had no idea how that setting got changed. So let me ask you this: I am still testing out my D500 and the sharpness seems, ummmm... lacking, even with wide-angles and even with the...

    D500 AF-C stuck

    Thanks in advance for helping out with this: When I first got my D500 I could easily scroll between AF-S and AF-C using the little button on the left side of the camera marked AF and M. I set it to AF-C and D-25 and forgot it. Today, I had the need to switch it back to AF-S and it won't move...

    End of my wedding season / some observations

    Well, since Philinnz asked - and it looks like Phil and I joined the NikonCafe on the exact same day 12 years ago - here are some things that have changed since 2013. 1) I practically never visit Nikon Cafe anymore. I retired from my job as DoP at the Times Herald-Record in July, 2015 and...

    Everyone Please Read!! Our Good Friend, Uncle Frank, Mr. Nikon Cafe (to me)

    Hang in there Frank. We were friends back in the DPR days and like many here, he contacted me back in 2005 and told me about NikonCafe and urged me to join. During a phone call, it turned out we grew up in the same neck of the woods. Hey, he's the guy who named the 28-70 2.8 lens "The Beast."...

    Critique Headshot, suggestions?

    Gabriel: Three things go into the equation for good portraits. As the others have said: 1) Learning the proper posing techniques is absolutely mandatory in portraiture. 2) Figuring out the proper lighting ratios is just as important. 3) But in the end, it's the emotional connection between...

    Duck Dynasty marathon this weekend on A&E!!!

    I too have never watched this show: But, in my opinion, there is nothing wrong with the duck dude saying what he thinks. He just has to be smart enough to realize there are consequences. A&E's show has made the guy a multi-millionaire with a goofy beard - so it is to his benefit not to kill the...

    End of my wedding season / some observations

    My guess, Rob, is that it's probably already happened - and will continue to happen. (But I always tell folks the same thing: Don't believe anything you see on the Internet.)

    Ogunquit, ME

    Hey Frits: Great shot. My family has vacationed in Ogunquit several times and we really like it there. Take a walk over to Perkins Cove for some more great views. We like to alter the Chamber of Commerce slogan to say: Ogunquit is an Indian word meaning "Pretty little village by the sea -...

    SD-8A high performance battery pack = SOLD

    I have three of these and they are great for high volume shooting at weddings or other events. With six batteries inside the pack and four in your flash unit, it gives you rapid-fire capabilities under all circumstances and even more so when using high ISO settings. But three is one too many...

    Another year, another National Championship (again...and again) - Part I

    So this is what happens next: Auburn leapfrogs Ohio State in the BCS rankings sending Urban Meyer into a absolute frenzy, Florida State finishes the season unbeaten and then has their QB suspended for the rest of the year (immediately turning FSU into the 78th best team in the nation) and FSU...

    End of my wedding season / some observations

    Russ Well, here is another one: A while back a woman calls me and insists I should hire her at my newspaper because "I have a great camera and it takes great pictures!" I told her several times it wasn't the camera that takes great pictures but, rather, the photographer - but, she wouldn't...

    D7100 images don't impress...

    I had the same problem with the D7100... I had to ship off one of my D700's to Nikon for repair in the middle of my fall wedding season so I purchased a D7100 as a stop gap measure. The poor thing was completely out of it's league: Couldn't focus fast enough, was too loud and produced very...

    End of my wedding season / some observations

    Yeah, Flash I hear ya on the wannabes. It's part of a general trend these days where young people think technology trumps knowledge. I can't tell you how many times I've been asked "what settings do you use for weddings?" My answer: "All of 'em." Or this: "I'm a professional photographer just...
