A question for our Nikon experts. What is. The best current wifi module? How about remote shutter trigger? Specifically related to the D800?

If anyone is in the Vegas area in late January, Red Flag kicks off on Jan 21st. Swedish Gripens are scheduled to be a participant. May be worth the 6 hour drive.....hmm?

Jim:

I have one similar to this for my D3s and have had no issues with it, works great for the long exposure stuff, or whatever else you might need a remote for.

Andrew, that was scary!! I hope your uncle's recovery goes smoothly and quickly!!!

Jo, trust me. Normal is no fun... I know 'cause I tried it once (for about 1/125) and it was horrible. Just be yourself 'cause everybody else is taken.

Cool stuff posted in the last few days!! Wowzers!!!

Here's something just for grins and giggles...

Thanks Tony, last night was just a test of the V1/FT1/TC301/300 combo just to see how close it would get me. Pretty darn close for sure . Sounds like you'll have some fun when you do get that invite. And yes, I'm taking good care of that 300


Can you show us a photo of that combo, Laura?


And Jim, I picked up a Cowboy Studio wireless version, plus I also have an MC-20 that I picked up cheaply.

The intent was to catch an airliner on final crossing the disc but arrivals failed to coincide with the correct elevation. So, got a nice full moon instead:

Laura, do you have any idea whether the Cowboy will work with the D800? It LOOKS like it's got the right connector, but I've been burned before because Nikon's got more than one standard for remote shutter release.

Nice wheel of cheese there Jay

I've spent too much time looking at this one. Kinda sorta too dark maybe when I look at it, but I think i'll let it be.

Steve, I'm pretty certain it will, since the D800 has the same ten pin connector as the D1h, D1x, D2 series, D3, D300s, D700

The benefits of long glass. 1/90 with a short lens means all the Oshkosh junk in the background is also in perfect focus. The 500 comes through.

One of the few times I was happy to see a fairly solid cloud cover.

1/90 rarely yields f/5.6

Excellent shot of the moon. I have got to get some bigger glass.

I know what you mean. Sometimes at midday in Reno I would look at the f/stop and think to myself, f/22, not exactly the sweet spot of any lens.

I shoot with a three stop ND in my long glass most of the time, for jets I'll bump the ISO up to 400, then for the propellers I drop it down to 100 ISO and that usually gets me in the right area shutter speed wise at around F/4 to F/5.6

The snow was falling very softly this afternoon, prompted me to get out the 105 Macro which I haven't shot with in probably over a year. This is the tree in our front yard:

Looking at the NXT you would think it would be a easy winner in Sport, it is even running a monster IO-720. Without turbos though, it was not even in the same league as the twin turbo smaller motors. This NXT looked great, but it had zero chance of winning.

I have never been a fan of using filters, and don't with the exception of landscape stuff. I also have a very strict rule of shooting ISO 100, period, unless I can't see the plane it is so dark.
