  • Jansplans: take a look at the Rogue Flashbender and add on diffusion panel. This setup works nicely and can be used on camera or obviously off camera with a cord or via pop-up flash if your flash supports this function. http://www.expoimaging.com/pr…
  • Not sure why there was a no-fire, unless either the camera or flash was moved in between shots or the sensor was somehow blocked. One thing to be careful of is to ensure that the little red sensor on the side of the flash has an unobstructed view of…
  • You'll have to read the manual to determine what the beeps mean. As you have noticed, sometimes it means a good thing, sometimes a bad thing. You don't mention how you're how you're doing wireless firing. If you're doing it via your camera's pop up …
  • Here's a link to a company that allows input via family members. How to make money this way is a dilemma. Maybe you just charge in advance for the use of the files. Richard http://www.sharedink.com
  • Clarah: you can download the D7000 manual from Nikon's website. On page 94 of the manual, you'll see a discussion of the AF-A mode. In essence, when using a G lens, AF-A functions as a face detection mode. I don't use this mode and therefore don't k…
  • I visited the Lumapix website and forum. There seemed to be alot of dissatisfaction with the Mac version of the s/w. The developers have acknowledged problems and indicated they are working on solutions. What's the consensus of Mac users on this fo…
  • In addition to what Trev mentioned, the lens has VR, which is very useful in low light situations and it weighs considerably less than either the 24-70 or 70-200. My only negative is that you will see some vignetting when shot at its widest. It can …
  • Meseroll: It sounds like you may have loose contacts. Here are two suggestions you might try to alleviate the problem: First, clean both surfaces of the hot shoe and flash foot with a substance like Deoxit and second, (only if you are really brave) …
  • I nominate Judge for President of the United States. Do I hear a second?
  • Viscara: thanks for the follow up. I'll contact 1Password support directly.
  • Neil: many thanks for the info. No, I wasn't aware of that function provided by dropbox. That will make life much easier. Richard
  • Neil: thanks for the reply. Aarghh!!! as I have 3 laptops. Richard
  • Lou: 3D is only available in the 51pt 3D setting. Yes, go to either 9 or 21 pt mode. I shoot alot of action, either sports or animals and find the 9 point works well for me, so it should work equally well on slow moving subjects. Easy though to do a…
  • Lou: I think alot of the problems you are seeing are the result of using 51pt 3d autofocus method as well as a possibly incorrect use of the AF-On method. Re the 51 pt usage, Nikon manual states "use to quickly compose pictures with subjects that a…
  • Frank: I was referring to dialing in the FEC via the PW AC controller mounted on a D700 and not via the D700. Altering the FEC in my experience alters the final flash output. You won't see it in the EXIF since your camera is off flash, but you will…
  • Frank: I have a similar set up as yours, except that I have a D700. My understanding of dialing in Flash Exposure Compensation is that you are telling the pre-flash as well as the flash to put out a + or - amount of light. So it is not just the pre-…
  • Sasko1: I've had the good fortune to sail the Drake Passage three times. If, as you mention in your post, you encounter enormous waves, one of the last things you'll be concerned with is your camera settings. You'll be more concerned with hanging on…
