    Stick with White Lightning or try something different?

    I have a bunch of X1600's that are about 10 years old, I need to buy 4 or 6 more of them and was wondering if I should stick with White Lightning or if I should try another brand? Every couple years one of them will need to be rebuilt which normally costs $55 or so, but with all the new...

    First Time using the D3S in an Arena

    I rented the D3S for the weekend for an arena Lacrosse game. I'm going full frame soon and I have read a bunch of great reviews on this camera so I figured I'd go with this one since I've read it does awesome with sports events. Being that it's inside and crappy lighting can anyone suggest...

    WTT: Nikon D7000 Body for Full Frame

    I'm looking to go full frame and I have a D7000 I'd like to trade plus some cash. I'm looking at the D3s or D800e, pretty open to offers. The 7000 has strap, box, manual, under 3500 pictures. Or if you just have one of those you want to sell let me know.

    Resetting D7000 Picture Count

    I have the D7000 and was wondering if there a way that when a memory card is formatted that the next photo starts back at 1? The reason being after doing 1345 shots at a shoot it would be nice to start back at 1 at the next one instead of 1346 for recording purposes.

    Achieving correct portrait placement for no cropping later

    I have a D7000 and I'm going to be taking 600+ Portraits in a few weeks for a sports team. All the photos are going to be 5x7, my question is is there a way to adjust the camera so that it knows I'm just going to be using 5x7s?

    Small Room Lighting Question

    My friend owns a Lacrosse league and he asked me to take a picture of each person for their online profile, the shot will be mid chest up. I'll do a small white background area but my question is should I just use my SB-700 with the Gary Fong Diffuser or should I setup a couple white lightening...

    Halo/Shadowing Issue

    My wife wanted me to snap a few photos of her with her Bills Jersey tonight. I bought the 7000 a few days ago and in a few of these photos I see some shadows/halo effect that don't seem naturally there from the lighting, these ones they are down off her legs. Any idea what it maybe?

    Zoomable portrait lens

    I have a 35mm 1.8 lens that came with my D7000 camera but it's not going to work with what I need. I do a lot of dance and karate portraits in a studio and I need something super sharp with a nice zoom. Nothing too crazy. What's a good recommendation?

    D7000 pricing question

    I have an opportunity to purchase a D7000 with 20k actuations, the mb-d11 grip, two batteries, the 18-105 vr, 50mm 1.8 af-s, 85mm manual focus. My question what is a used setup like this one worth and is 20k actuations too much? The camera and all accessories look new with no signs of wear.
