In Topic: New Comprehensive D850 Review

Today, 03:35 PM

Here's Nikon's article on the auto focus calibration routine.

But I couldn't get it to work very well. Set it up on a tripod in a well lit area. I just used a a book on it's end with a ruler taped at a 45°. Focus on the front of the book (0 on the ruler). Then shoot some shots at the highest aperture of the lens. and see where the focus actually is. Make a manual adjustment +/-..

 

I found some lenses that were good and a couple that needed a tweak, like my Sigma 15. The D850 is very sensitive...

 

There's lots of simple targets you can buy too. Google is your friend.

It's now a super zoom out to 200mm with a very long lens barrel. It will be very hard to house. Most of these are unusable underwater as such.

Luminosity from Skylum Software has a lot of potential. I really like Aurora HDR 2018.

No, the YSD2J is commonly sold in Taiwan.

We've sold something like around 80 with no problems since Sept. I don't know what problems you had Bill, I don't think you got the strobes from us? These are US units btw, not from Taiwan.
