Finally, there is a video firmware hack for Nikon!

Now there's a fix for the 20-minute limit

By Tony Donaldson | April 10, 2013

I have a Nikon D5100 that I use as a backup on video shoots. During some interviews and presentations, the 20-minute limit means that I have to stop the camera after 20 minutes or at least be on top of it to restart it running, which means that if it's the only camera recording, there will...

How Lens Focal Length Shapes the Face & Controls Perspective

A lighting Tutorial

By JPMorgan | October 06, 2012

The lens or Focal length of the lens you choose has a profound impact on the image. It effects the perspective, background, and features of the subject. Everyone should understand what the different focal lengths do to the human face and how they change the background. Why do you choose a 135 mm lens to shoot a head shot of a beautiful woman but use a 24mm to shoot a clown? Read More

Pixel Vertical Grip For The Nikon D800

Pixel Vertical Grip For The Nikon D800

How to get better control and save $300 in the process.

By Tony Donaldson | September 17, 2012

I've had my Nikon D800 for a little bit, and decided it would be a lot better to have a vertical grip for it. The OEM grip is the Nikon MB-D12 Multi Battery Power Pack (reminds me of my old MD-12 for the FM2), and runs a cool $400. The D700 grip, the MB-D10, was similar, and only $250. This caused an uproar among prosumer users, and most anyone else on a budget. Why would essentially the same thing be nearly twice the price? Read More

Being Prepared

It's not just having a backup body, it's being able to think on your feet.

By Tony Donaldson | June 18, 2012

As a photographer with a couple of decades' worth of experience, I've seen a lot of things go wrong on my shoots. Though you have to have an extra body and lens (at LEAST), the ability to think on your feet and remain calm and still get the shots you need is PARAMOUNT to being able handle a career in photography.

Why Nikon HAD to make the D800 ultra high resolution

Megapixels: Go Big or Go Home was their only choice

By Mike Curtis | March 07, 2012

Theory/Supposition/Personal Opinion: Nikon realized Canon had video zipped up. They couldn't get a decisive win there. If they made their low light performance too close to the D4, they'd cannibalize sales as they had with the D3/D700. So how could they respond effectively and get some mindshare back? Megapixels: Go Big or Go Home was their only choice left. Read More

How much does it cost to put together a shootable package with these?

By Mike Curtis | March 07, 2012

At first glance, the Canon 5D Mark III costs $500 more than the Nikon D800 - $3500 vs $3000. Canon costs more, case closed. Not so fast...what about what it takes to make a shootable package? Lenses, grips, batteries, chargers, GPS, etc. don't all cost the same... Read More
