Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Here is how to proceed and what to expect:

Enter your name and e-mail address below, and you'll be instantly added to our photography mailing list distribution. You'll receive a one-time confirmation e-mail. Right after that, the first e-mail with today's digest will be forwarded to you.

My best friend is interested in buying a Nikon d 750 ( I have one with 24-120 f4 lens and love it). He went to dpreview and that sent him to Amazon where he sees a d 750 body NEW with 3 new prime Nikon lenses ( 35, 50 and 85). It's being called the film makers kit and Comerce A, Z is the third party seller. They are selling this bundle NEW for $1200 plus $10 shipping. Seems like it has to be a scam as the body alone is more than that. Does anyone out there know anything about this deal or about Comerce A ,Z ?? Advice please

Don't do it. The body alone is worth 1800. If it looks too good to be true. It is.

First of all, if something is too good to be true is generally is. I can say with confident that's it a scam. If you want to really find out call the seller. Ask if you can buy it in person.

Gray Market?

Comerce A, Z is listed as 'just launched' with no feedback. I would run away as fast as you can.
Scams like this pop up on Amazon with high dollar items, cameras, lenses, etc. all the time.
A lot of them say something like 'contact me at ---phone number--- before ordering' and the price is way to low to be real.

Anybody (even you) can sell on Amazon. And clearly they don't do a very good job of checking out who sells using their services. In this case the presumed sanction of the Amazon name is of no value.

Amazon appears simply to have become a "lesser" CraigsList. You're on your own here!

Wouldn't touch this deal with a 10' pole. Run just don't walk away.

Amazon,in the fine print,tells us that essentially they sell advertising space to vendors and they do not come under their "umbrella."

It is a scam. There are a TON of scams on Amazon. Especially when the seller is listed as new and provides an email address to "confirm stock" before ordering. You email them, they tell you its in stock, and send you a fake Amazon page where they ask you to pay with Apple gift cards. Total scam...

My grandfather used to tell me: "All a lock does is keep an honest person, honest." He also said: "If it exists, there is a person trying to exploit it."

My mother taught me, when I was very young "Son, if it's too good to be true, it usually isn't" Or course another wise man said "there is a sucker born every minute" and the guy in Brooklyn that has a bridge for sale cheap. Looks like you fall into the last two categories.

For benchmark best prices,the A,B,C's are to be remembered: Adorama,B&H,Cameta. I'm not saying that they are the only sources,but they are excellent indicators of legitimate pricing.

Yes, run in the other direction. I saw a couple of those ads. The price listed was far below the Nikon, Adorama, and B&H price, and much lower than the cost of a refurbished D750. None of them mentioned a USA warranty. They listed a one year "Store" warranty.

If only that were a legitimate offer! Google doesn't seem to know that seller. A quick look on Amazon didn't let me find it either.
