For years I enjoyed using zoom lenses. But ever I switched to Canon's 24MB Cmos (Especially in my new camera, Canon 77D) I use prime lenses more often. I enjoy their sharpness as well bright apertures. I went little prime crazy, being few of them in the last couple months. I currently own 24mm f 2.8 Canon, 35mm f2.8 IS `Canon, 45mm USDD VC Tamron, 50mm f1.4 Canon, 85mm f1.8 Canon, 90mm f2.8 Tamron, 105mm f2.8 Sigma. I use them more often than my zooms.

I know how to use a camera, I've been shooting professionally for over40 years. Sounds to me you don't know how to use a camera other wise you wouldn't have sent such a stupid reply.

I could have suggested a more logical reason why you didn't try it yourself, but did not wish to appear impolite.

I have never seen this here. I know that when shooting negative film you use black masks to make double exposures. When using digital what color masks do you use, black masks or white masks?

Find someone who knows how to use a camera, have them try both, and tell you which is best.

Don’t forget that you need a higher shutter speed with the d810 try shooting at 1/(2 x focal length) minimum and see what happens, also try to keep with a 3:1 or better zoom ratio, the higher the ratio the more compromise is made in the design.

It's an insult to tell the OP you don't think he's smart enough to know the difference between lens resolution and motion blur.

Your leisure time may be better spent with some activity you're interested in.

Well, looks like the verdict is in, turn it off. I'll continue to do as I was then. Interesting about attracting dust because of the negative charge, makes sense. Thanks all.

Isn't the UHH just great? You can always find someone to do your thinking for you

No need to take offense at a statement of fact.

Help is on the way - but not very soon - for people who find their cameras too heavy.

"Workers at Ford’s car assembly plants are using exoskeletons to assist them. The EksoVest, a wearable support system created by Ford and the California-based exoskeleton firm Ekso Bionics, is designed to prevent shoulder injuries. These are a common hazard for workers at the plant, who have to lift tools above their heads thousands of times every day. “Before I started wearing it, I was always really sore at the end of the day,” says one worker. “Now it’s nothing.”

Sounds great - for those who lift their cameras above their heads thousands of times a day.

It has nothing to do with a "holding technique" when I'm shooting. The lens rests in the palm of my hand. The switches never get moved while I am shooting. It's when I am through shooting a particular gymnastics routine, rest up, and then go to the next routine. While I am holding, transporting and moving my heavy camera and lens around, my fingers, thumb, palm, whatever brush up against the switches and move them. The 70-200mm lens is 3.2 lb and the D3s is about 3.1 lb, so together I am holding and wielding about 6.3 lb and sometimes this involves cradling the lens while my arms are resting or walking around. When I lay the system down for a rest and then pick it back up, there is a chance that I hit a switch. I also shoot with a 200-500mm lens that never gives me a problem with the switches and their layout, so I am thinking that the 70-200mm lens is not ergonomically designed for me.

This sounds different from your original post, from which I understood you were accidently moving the switches while shooting. Since you now say that is not the case I have to wonder, what is physically preventing you from resetting them when you start shooting again?

Folks, I am getting more and more aggravated by the day over my fumbling fingers. I have a problem with the switches on my Nikon 70-200mm lens barrel being moved off of the set points by my fingers. I often find that I have moved the A/M switch to the M position and 20 shots are OOF before I get a chance to chimp. Or I move the VR switch to off and again run off several exposures without VR on. I have thought of one final solution----superglue the darn things in place. But the next owner may not like that. Or get a huge rubber band to go around the barrel and cover access to those switches. I have seen some covers at B&H.

What do you do to prevent this?

I had the same problem when I first got my 70-200 Nikkor. Took almost a whole minute to learn how to use it.

Lonewolf 456 - I don't either. No matter what, there always seems to be some ###### on this site that needs to make some unnecessary and unwanted comment. I just don't get it. It happens all too often, and it's not called for. Some new photographer to this site is just asking a simple question to get some feedback about something they don't understand and along comes #### running off at the mouth(keyboard) with inappropriate comments. I was under the impression that this site was about sharing our experience and skills with other upcoming photographers. My mother always taught us when we were kids, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything.
I think that the administrators or monitors of this site need to put out a warning to the person(s) making unwelcome comments that if they continue to make crass remarks they will be banned from this site. I for one am sick and tired of having to see inappropriate comments.

I apologise if my comment was beyond your powers of comprehension.

I see many posts that mention cameras by manufacturer, i.e. Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, plus a few others. I have yet to see any posts making any comment, positive or negative, about Pentax. As a Pentax user, I have found them to be very good cameras with excellent glass, and very easy to handle, control and operate. So, I'm wondering how others here feel or think of Pentax gear, positive or negative.


I'm thinking that a descriptive title would have been intelligent.

but, he went on to say, "I’ve seen many of my shots either way too dark or washed out, and I don’t know why." and this was related to using flash. Reading the meter scale with it's +'s and -'s on the bottom of the screen should be pretty obvious, I would imagine. His concern seemed to be with getting blown out, or too dark images when using the flash.

Interpret it as you wish.
