    Nikon D5300 Upgrade HELP PLEASE

    I have attached two photos to show our setup and my camera settings - to be honest I cant see my boss changing the lights as the photography gets a fair amount of traffic (unfortunately) so things get knocked occasionally and a couple of other members of staff use the setup from time to time for...

    Nikon D5300 Upgrade HELP PLEASE

    We use a lightcube with LED panels around it which seems to do a sufficient job so I'm thinking glass is the way to go as an 'upgrade' - currently my photos come out ok but when you zoom in there is a fair amount of fuzziness in places. I have experimented with settings on the camera and reduced...

    Nikon D5300 Upgrade HELP PLEASE

    Hi guys, have been using a Nikon D5300 for work Product Photography for a couple of years now and time has come to possibly upgrade the camera so we can give this one to another factory for them to take their own photos. I have been fairly happy with the camera using the kit lens and after some...

    Struggling with LED lamps and DOF...

    So the move to 1000w made quite a big difference - so did moving the green screen further back and also moving the camera back and zooming in at 45mm. We are fairly happy with the final outcome now but have found that white card scrims still need to be held in the right position to create...

    Thankyou! - how about the 250W output of each light? is that good? medium? poor? I'm a complete beginner when it comes to strobes...

    Struggling with LED lamps and DOF...

    Would you mind giving your opinion on this setup please? seems to good to be true - the price isnt the most important thing for the company but i was also considering this one for my own use at home for ebay photos etc...

    Struggling with LED lamps and DOF...

    Yes i was considering strobes - i have battery powered off camera flashes at home but wasnt convinced this would be workable due to unreliable power source. I found these for example: GODOX 250DI Photo Studio Strobe Flash Light 250W 220V Lighting Lamp Head 【IE】 would i need some kind of soft...

    Struggling with LED lamps and DOF...

    Thanks John, interesting reading - i will skip the blue backdrop as im not convinced it would remain a consistent colour, plus we sometimes need the background cut out for other markets outside the UK. Are you saying the LED's are a waste of time? this is my first time using them and im not...
