That Reflex-Nikkor should serve you well. Nikon recommended the TC-14A or TC-14B 1.4X, and TC-201 2X teleconverters. I think you’ll lose too much image quality with any 2X.
Since you’re focusing manually, proper diopter adjustment is critical. I believe your camera has the plain Type B screen, which I find ideal for most purposes. If you cannot see the screen etchings clearly, you might want to consider one of the magnifying attachments Nikon makes for your camera.
How’s your post-processing skill? Check this out: https://www.uglyhedgehog.com/t-206902-1.html
Note what Searcher did with that tiny 8-bit JPEG, and imagine what you could achieve with a RAW file.

I agree with what you said about the Nikon mirror lens and plain focusing screens, but what's with the link to the "Test of a $45 lens"?

I can most always identify images taken in Jpeg mode "relying on getting it right in the camera" without any correction afterwards- blown out highlights, too much contrast, dark shadows, harsh colors, dull colors, poor exposure, incorrect white balance for starters. If the image is taken at the perfect time, in the best lighting conditions with the wisest settings then a Jpeg works. But unfortunately most photographic opportunities don't happen in aforementioned conditions and often don't look as we had imagined the scene straight from the camera. Under less than perfect conditions it's much easier to manage a Raw format than Jpeg.

Just because you are ignorant of white balance settings and meter interpretation, doesn't mean everyone else is.

How do you think the crop factors were calculated in the first place.

By dividing the FX diagonal by the DX diagonal?

I wasn’t happy with the background.

Unless you added it later on the computer, that background was there before you released the shutter!

I've just been signed on with the local newspaper, and my first assignment is a pro wrestling benefit for someone injured in an auto accident. I don't follow wrestling. I plan on a high ISO (3200?) and a fast shutter. Doubt if I can use flash, but not sure. Probably will have decent available light. Any suggestions to assure my editor will be pleased?

Be truthful and tell the editor he needs to hire a photographer for the job.

Yes, that OK button has messed up more than one user.

And vice versa!

I apologize for bothering the group. I changed the preference to shoot jpg and nef and my mistake was that I did not hit the ok button to save my selection. I am learning.

It's always good to hear when UHH solves a problem.

Ive done a Portrait shoot for someone .
Was not paid and was a favour .

The Images came out quite strong and very contrasty.
Not flattering at all .. in fact a bit on the Not nice at all side .

So I did some minor adjustments in PS to soften the face etc .

She now insists on having the originals not adjusted ..
But as I said the Originals are quit bad which show many of her ' Imperfections '

I really dont want to show her the originals .

Any thoughts ?
Anyone been in this position before ?

Cheers

Be honest about it and just tell her that you are a poor photographer.

Hi all,

Here I am trying to take pictures of a family of 5 moose (Grand Tetons), big male included at about 1/4 mile away with my Sigma 100-400 and around me, there were at least 6 or 7 people watching those animals as well.

As I started shooting (burst mode of course), many heads turned toward me with a "look", you know that look!. This is where I do not like my new D750 too much.

Is there a way to turn the shutter sound down as it it quite an obnoxious sound if you are not alone.

Thanks

The people may have been wondering why there was no photographer behind the camera.

175 USD for shipping seems rather exorbitant.

I watch a ton of photography videos and a lot of them shoot with the sun shade in the storage or reverse position. For the life of me I can't understand any scenario where this would be the way to go. Besides not blocking the sun or help protecting the front lens it just gets in the way. What am I missing here.

In some videos the hood is also mounted properly, and this presents a huge problem … when you are incapable of thinking for yourself, how are you supposed to know which one to copy??

You've had it a month already … at this rate you should be needing a memory card about Christmastime.
