    Nikon 1 V3

    So true that we are not in their meeting rooms. I would love to be in there and see the thought processes. Until a month ago, I was a marketing and operations analyst for a major computer manufacturer and can tell you from first hand experience that corporations do not always read the data...

    Nikon 1 V3

    You may be right, but I just have a hard time believing the market for a pro-bodied DX camera is that small. Personally, I know of some pro photographers who would jump on one with a current generation sensor (hi ISO/low noise) and 7-9 fps. A friend who does portraits with her D800 wants to...

    Nikon 1 V3

    I want to see how well that 20fps works in a high school stadium at night when the lighting sucks. Especially with f5.6 as the best aperture. Why the hell won't Nikon just do a D400?

    Action Soccer Shots

    Since you will always have messy backgrounds on kids soccer games you always want to shoot with the aperture as wide open as possible to isolate the players. My other suggestion would be to get where can see their faces. Only seeing the back of a player does not usually make an interesting shot...

    Insert generic rant title here...

    16yr old son sprains his ankle 2 days before select soccer tryouts. Now he will miss a couple of college showcases and the last 3 games/playoffs for his high school team. Apparently he has my luck, the poor kid.

    Nikon Rumors D7200 (30/Jan/2014)

    True about the possibility of no 7D replacement. I am going off what Canon Rumors is saying - a Q2 release, we shall see. As for the K3, it looks like a great camera and I have thought about it. My concern is that my ultimate goal is be a serious sports/event photographer so I am also looking at...

    Nikon Rumors D7200 (30/Jan/2014)

    Nikon is about to lose me. I have been waiting for a D300s replacement for a couple of years, but can't wait much longer. I now have the chance the actually make some money shooting high school sports and will be upgrading to a new body and a couple of lenses soon. I mostly will be shooting...

    Nikon D7100 or D610 for Indoor Sports Photography with no flash?

    I really wish Nikon would read this thread. just another case where a D400 would be the perfect camera. I shoot night soccer games with my D90 and am able to get some decent shots at ISO 3200 but I have do some serious noise reduction in Photoshop. Personally I use Aperture Priority, lock the...
