Nikon 200-500 VR lens

Today, 05:52 AM

I have been tempted to buy a Sigma 150-600. Now more inclined to go for the Nikon 200-500.
Nature and maybe aircraft shots. Love to hear you’re experience, hopefully.


Grey Card White Balance

Do any of you members use a grey card? Just got one for free but never used one before!
Never got into white balance but with my D7200 I’m looking to get better results with it, expanding my knowledge.


Back Button Focus Question

Another help question, 

I have my D7200 set to use back button focus, enjoying it until today, Then noticed today the green box wouldn't show as focused only red?

Firstly Merry Christmas.
I vaguely remember someone mentioning how to setup your camera with your lens.
Is this safe to use on a Mac? What is it’s name if so.

Nikon Rip You Off

07 December 2018 - 08:09 AM

Disgusted with them. I have a 18-55 AF-S basic kit lens used. The adjustment became loose so I googled it.

Found out its an easy fix as shown on youtube I have added. 

Its a 3mm x 1.5mm little plastic thingy, normally they come off, mine broke. So contacted Nikon UK spares by email no response after a while so rang them, asked me to send make/model etc. just had this email from Highway Robbery (Nikon). with this quote?? I can buy a new lens for that!!




Can you confirm that the part you are after is the one highlighted in the attched picture? If so, unfortunately this is not available as a stand alone item, but only as part of the larger assembly (which I have quoted you for below). If this isn’t the right part, could you send me a picture of where in the lens the runner came from?


Listed below is a breakdown of your required part(s):
