  1. My parents bought a Nikon EM back in 1979. It was one of the first budget film SLR that used the Nikon brand name, instead of Nikkormat or Nikomat. It shouldn't be surprising that the shutter has issues after some 40+ years. Not sure it is worthwhile to fix it. My father may still have his EM, but I haven't seen it in decades. Sorry I can't help you, but I wonder whether it is worthwhile to fix an EM.
  2. Note: Consider keeping uploads no larger than 1600 pixels on the long side when it matters, and sticking with 1000 pixels when the image feels no pain at that resolution. On data size/compression, try to keep things under 1mb, shooting for 600kb when you can stop there. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc.). New to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here: https://www.photo.net/forums/topic/398109-guidelines-for-nikon-forum-wednesday-image-threads. For now, we're sticking with 1, 2, or 3 images per week as you see fit. The same two types of birds as last week: brown pelican and snowy egret
  3. The problem with one subject out of focus is that the viewer's eyes are trying to resolve it, thus getting attention, but it is an image, not an actual person so that the eyes will not be able to resolve the focus. I find it particularly distracting when the subject that is closer to the camera is out of focus.
  4. You can shoot f16 and still won't get both singers within depth of field. If your camera is on a tripod. you can merge two exposures with separate focus on each singer, but the background could be an issue if there is focus breathing.
  5. Not bathing, but I have a video of a California Towhee attacking their own reflection off a car window and mirror: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVqJK05tggE
  6. Nice picture, but using the 135mm Plena @ f1.8 on two subjects will certainly have (at least) one of them totally out of focus. This is probably a perfect case to merge two different exposures, one with each subject in focus, since there is no overlap between the two singers.

Two different fishing methods: The snowy egret is about to swallow a shrimp, but the brown pelican scopes up a lot of tiny fishes and swallows them all.
  8. Forster's tern with catch. This bird is banded on the right leg, but I got a long sequence of images and this one doesn't show the band, hence meeting nature photography requirements.
  9. That was exactly what I wrote yesterday. Apple Mac cannot deal with HE* and HE compressed RAW files from Nikon. For me, shooting lossless NEF is not an issue, but I shoot at 20 fps a lot. Doubling the file size will quickly lead to storage problems for me. I think you should use a different viewer to view your HE* files, or switch to Windows. ☺️
  10. BTW, I believe that EU rule about charging cameras that can record video for longer than 30 minutes as video cameras and therefore subjected to higher import duty expired in 2019. It is annoying that the Z6ii, introduced in October 2020, still has that 30-minute limit. At least newer cameras after that, such as the 2021 Z9 and the Z30, Z8, Zf, Z6iii no longer have that limitation. Or the new limit is 2 hours and 5 minutes for the Z9 ....
  11. Both my Z8 and Z9 can capture much longer video. I even considered adding a Z30, but I would rather not deal with SD cards and that tiny battery. The Z6iii can be my solution. For my concert videos, I can use 3, 4 cameras simultaneously.
