  1. Andrew Garrard liked mike_halliwell's post in the thread Custom Menu g4 ....

    :) I think it was the re-configuring of the 10-pin socket connection (!!) that I'd not considered... As it turns out it's actually...

  2. Andrew Garrard replied to the thread XQD availability?.

    Oh dear. I'd love to see a statement from Nikon (although I have very little hope of seeing one) indicating which cameras they expect to...

    Oh. I should have thought of that. But then I shoot video so rarely... Thanks for reporting!

    Thanks for the correction, Chris. That's disappointing (from a purely academic, I have no particular inclination to buy a Z7...

    The way my purely manual (no aperture lever) lenses work is that you do, indeed, have to stop them down with their aperture rings prior...

  6. Andrew Garrard replied to the thread Vivitar 28-210 N/AI-S.

    It's "crippling" in that it removes the relatively expensive and delicate aperture follower mechanism around the lens mount. I don't...

    Update: Hypnoken purports to have tried it, and says the FTZ stops down to the shooting aperture in order to meter immediately before...

    Interesting - I can't spot it obviously described in the manual either (though I've only skimmed briefly). The "non-CPU lens data" menu...

  10. Andrew Garrard liked clark_roberts's post in the thread Nikon D700, Oh what a mess it is!.

  11. Andrew Garrard replied to the thread 70-300mm f/4.5 G Lens Incompatible with D300/D300s.

    Agreed with others, AF-P won't work with much older cameras (unlike Canon's stepper motor design, "STM", which I believe works with all...

  12. Andrew Garrard liked rodeo_joe|1's post in the thread Nikon 85mm f2.8 T&S Re-orientation... PC or PC-E...Cost?.

  13. Andrew Garrard replied to the thread My Nikon z7 w/ FTZ adapter just arrived! But what am I missing?.

    I have a similar problem with one of my tilt-shift lenses - it's basically square, and fouls on the grip (and prism) during mounting. I...

  14. Andrew Garrard replied to the thread My Nikon z7 w/ FTZ adapter just arrived! But what am I missing?.

    I've got to say the tripod socket on the body is a little farther forward than I assumed it was going to be. Kirk have a tiny generic...

  15. Andrew Garrard replied to the thread Nikon 85mm f2.8 T&S Re-orientation... PC or PC-E...Cost?.

    I appreciate the convenience of separate front and rear movements, but surely they're optically equivalent, except in as much as you...
