Any opinions on Viltrox lenses?

29 June 2021 - 10:21 AM

Hello all,


Looking for a new lens for my Z6II. Want a portrait lens, 85mm or 105mm, but not sure I want to shell out $800-$1000 at this time. Saw a Viltrox 85mm 1.8 Autofocus lens, and wondering if anyone has experience, good or bad, with this brand or this lens. (But I AM really considering new Nikkor, even the 2.8 zooms.)


Thanks for any feedback you can give.



Godox V860II N will not operate in TTL mode on Z6II

20 June 2021 - 04:08 PM

I cannot get my Godox V860II (N) to fire in TTL mode on my Z6II. I did find out that there is a firmware update for the flash (mine is currently v 1.8) but I haven’t been able to get it installed. The flash says there is a driver error on the computer.


Anyone else have any issues like this, and any success solving them?


Thanks for any assistance or insight.



Focusing D5600 in Snapbridge

02 February 2021 - 01:28 AM

I’ve used my D5600 a few times before with Snapbridge, but recently I can’t get it to focus on my selected focus point. It will focus on the initial point where the focus is set when I activate the Snapbridge app, but if I tap the screen to select a different point, the focus square stays green and the original point stays in focus. If I move the camera to recompose the shot, the camera will not reacquire focus. I have tried in AF-A, AF-S, and AF-C modes, and nothing seems to affect the outcome. Am I missing something about the operation of Snapbridge?  I have also reset the shooting menu and the custom menu, turned the camera on/off, removed and replaced the battery, and changed lenses (4 different ones), all to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

I caught these colors in the sky at sunrise. No color adjustments made, just lightened exposure a bit to lighten foreground.

CC welcomed!

photoshop elements or subscription?

14 January 2021 - 10:52 AM

I haven't done any editing and I want to start editing the images I've created. I have Photoshop elements 2019 on my laptop, but it won't let me edit my RAW files or update the Camera Raw plug-in. I believe it has come to the end of its support by Adobe, because their site lists Elements 2020 and 2021 as supported.


Question is, do I get Photoshop Elements 2021 or get a subscription version? Not shooting much right now, but I want to do some portrait shoots this year, just to practice the craft and find my strengths and weaknesses. I take a few landscape or scenery shots now and again (around the train station where I work, the local park, etc.) but I really want this to be the year I get out there more, even doing a little street photography, portraiture, stuff like that. I have a lot of previous shots that I can work on to edit, but I intend to do a lot more RAW captures from this point on.


Any thoughts/opinions?  Thanks in advance for the help.
