I don't own a drone, but have thought of getting one for (very) occasional use when I just could not find a camera position to capture a pleasing composition. In my view, a drone is a replacement...

I wish I had the original raw file for this one. I could probably help the person make it look more realistic. As it is, it is overexposed and a little tough on the eyes.

Hi Dennis,

In a word, yes. I donít like to shoot that camera above 1600 ISO, and will use my old D4 if I know I will need to be above 2500. The files are just not as clean at high ISO as either...

There is zero lag when you press the shutter release. It fires immediately. The problem is that the EVF is not quite real-time, so when you pull the shutter release, you're a fraction of a second...

Hi Daniel,

The Nikon 18-200mm "DX" lens that you have been using is what I refer to as a "do-all" lens. It covers a wide range of focal lengths from wide angle to medium telephoto. The...

Well, the Z6 would be an excellent upgrade from a D300 as the latter is probably 10 years old now, unless you have the "S" version. But that said, there are some caveats that you will need to...

Sean's image is not really a going-away shot, but rather, a rear quarter shot of a stopped locomotive and consist. It is interesting in that it depicts a mixed train with an N&W "Mollie" on point,...
