Red torch / flashlight recommendation for night shooting.

05 November 2023 - 11:55 AM

Who likes night time photography? Lots of people, myself included.

A problem I encountered was identifying camera controls in the dark.

Forum members Merco_61 & Ron suggested a red torch as being a good option.


A white light torch is unsuitable as the user’s eyes take some time to adjust to low light conditions.

A quick burst of white light puts the user’s eyes back to daylight mode and recovery time is needed again.


There are lots of products available, but this is the one I chose.




The cost was £8 and ordered from an ebay seller.


This has three modes of operation. Each accessed by sequential pressing of the ‘on’ button.


1.Very bright red.

2.Flashing red.

3.Dimmed red.


Many different suppliers have this item available with similar descriptions;


Red Light LED Flashlight 3Modes Red Torch Lamp Astronomy Night Vision Camping


though they seem to be identical.

D7200 'issue' - focus point.

23 October 2023 - 03:09 PM

A new-to-me D7200 was delivered to me, supplied with 6 months warranty by a very reputable dealer.


I more or less set it up with the same settings as my D800E.


However, when looking through the viewfinder, the focus point 'box' moves around between shots.

Sometimes it will show several f-point boxes briefly, then a single box.

The position of the single box moves around.

Using the up-down selector does not seem to make a difference.

I have it set to back button focus.


In 'live view', the focus point can be moved around as expected using the multi-selector button.


The camera is on the latest available firmware.


Any thoughts please?
