Posted by bbarringer in bbarringer's Blog, 02 March 2020 · 80 views

I have been shooting via Capture One, but recently my 850 is not being read by my computer or software on two different Macs. Has anybody ever had similar issues with their cameras? Do we think its a camera port issue, tether issue, usb computer port issue?

Need help picking a camera

Posted by gator2030 in gator2030's Blog, 12 May 2019 · 464 views

I am very unsure of what camera to get. right now I have a D810 and it is just way too much for me to handle. I am in need of a camera a little more user-friendly that I can take out on the water when I fish. Any suggestions?

Happier still!

Posted by Dogbytes in Dogbytes' Blog, 20 April 2019 · 523 views

Well, two weeks in and, thanks to spending some time with the D850 and a lot of very helpful suggestions on technique and settings from Merco_61 and Bobby18120, it just keeps getting better. The hit rate, in terms of shots in focus, is ridiculously high and I’m particularly impressed by the camera’s ability to obtain focus in less than ideal lighting.
