Interesting! I checked out Shutterfly, but if I want to order these in bulk to sell! YIKES!


That may be. I have usually only ordered one or two of each at a time. I never considered it as a publishing source.

I also have used Shutterfly for many years. The website is free and fairly straight forward to use. The best part is that they have a great chat system that can solve almost any problem you might have with the site. Over the years I have found them to have the best customer service of any outfit I have worked with. My family and friends have always enjoyed the books. And, no, I have no connection with Shutterfly other than using the system.

Beautiful shot! I was there about 8 years ago and tried and tried to capture the feeling and look of the place but certainly did nothing to match your shot. Maybe with a newer camera with better ISO performance, I might have but this is just spectacular. Thank you.

With no disrespect intended, I think the responses to "Brand Loyalty" are off base. Clearly, at least in my mind, the major camera companies and lens making companies all have made excellent equipment over the years. Sometimes there is a sway one way or another depending on recent big developments, etc. I have used Nikon equipment for over 60 years and have been very happy. A primary reason was that having devoted significant money to lenses, it was not practical, at least for me, to shift in response to some new development. I remain happy. I recognize the value of other manufacturers equipment but not to the extent that I need to endure the expense of a complete shift. For my purposes (as I am not a professional photographer) Nikon will undoubtedly provide me all the options I need.

Linda, Yes, thank you for all you have done for UHH. I hope you will still be around with comments and suggestions. You have always impressed me with your calm, polite discussions of various topics. I always thought I would have enjoyed sharing a dinner with you or, as the Italians say, you are "someone with whom I would like to break bread."

DirtFarmer has got it right. You are a photographer once you press the button. You may not be a good photographer but you are a photographer. I consider myself a photographer but admit that after over 72 years (I'm 82), I am still learning and enjoying. I am sure there are those with a more acute and learned background in science of photography take, on average, "better" pictures than I. However, I enjoy my results as do my family and friends for whom I provide prints, calendars, etc. I'm afraid I find it a bit pompous to establish a limit to just who can be considered "a photographer."

Jerry, That was great. We lived in Japan for almost seven years in two different periods and still look back with pleasure at all our time there. A fascinating and enjoyable place. Thanks for sharing.

As always, Linda from Maine, is spot on!

The really frightening thing is that I understand these scammers get a 1-3% return on their scams.

It seems incredible that anyone would pay $96 to have someone else set up my camera settings. I just purchased a new Z8 and there must be a dozen different You Tube videos going through a step by step process of setting it up -- for free. I have to agree with most of the other comments that I might not like every particular setup that Matt likes. It seems to me that going through the options pretty much one by one will at least familiarize you with the choices and the camera. No, I can't imagine paying that much for a custom set up. But, that is just me.

I appreciate the quick replies, especially since they are from people whose opinions I generally agree with. I have had very poor luck with Snapbridge and I really mostly need the remote shutter. At 83, I’m not as stable as I once was and I have a very stable tripod. I was hoping that some might have recent experience with remote shutters for a Z8.

I recently purchased a Nikon Z8 and am interested in a remote shutter release that will reduce possible shaking during shooting and also provide for an intervalometer function. I have looked at many on Amazon and elsewhere but so many of them seem to have so many poor reviews for reliability and quality. I would appreciate input that other Hogs may have had with various remote shutter controls that are compatible with the Z8 (many of the ads for remote devices when I Google them do not seem to be up to date on applicability to the Z8. I have to presume that if it has the 12 contact device or is listed as working on the Z9, it must also work on the Z8, but I may be wrong.)

Thank you.

I also choose not to advertise the type of camera I am using, so I change the strap. Furthermore, I buy a strap (wide because I find them more comfortable) that has a metal line through it to make it less likely that someone can come up behind me and cut the strap and run with my camera. There is not much I can do if someone wants the camera enough to club me over the head and take the camera.
