    Nikon D810 Live Histogram Accuracy

    I find the internal ( via viewfinder ) metering conservative as well - Say this as when I get the RAW file to Bridge, I see that more “room” at the ends ( shadow or highlight ) than the histogram the camera shows AFTER the image has been shot in the non-live-view mode which results in highlights...

    Hello : Is the Live Histogram when viewed under Live View an accurate 14bit RAW Data representation or does it mimic data as shown once an image is taken which I believe is based on jpeg data and not RAW Data. Kindly confirm. Jai

    Tripod Feature Possibility ??

    Thanks for all the replies - RSS products are yet to be made available in India and thus I stick to the ones available here ( i.e. Gitzo and Manfrotto ) - Good to know that such an option is already available and that the feature is practical - Perhaps, other manufactures will follow in the...

    Nikon MB D12 Question

    Hi Carlos : Yes, if I am not mistake with the purchase of a BL-5 battery- chamber cover one can use a D4/D4s battery with the MB-D12. When you say "carryover battery", you do mean that there is no battery in the body, but only in the MB-D12, right ? Thanks, Jai

    Nikon MB D12 Question

    Thanks Bob for the reply - Good to know that the Camera can be used with a battery only in the grip - I personally would prefer to access the battery without detaching the grip from the camera for each charge - The other possible benefit would be a marginally lighter set up ( i.e. as the...

    Hello : Can the Nikon MB D12 Battery Pack be used on a D800/D810 without a battery in the camera and only in the Battery Pack ? Trying to see if there is a way where the Battery Pack does not have to be detached each time the camera's battery is exhausted. Jai
