Last wedding I was a guest at, I took my K10D along just because. I was mostly shooting the pix that the pro photog wasn't getting, or just capturing scenes. 1/4 of the pix in the final wedding album were mine. In event photography, it is really more being able to capture a moment than being able to pose a perfect frame.
Yeah. I know what you mean. I just thought it was audacious that he's asking for help and then gets yelled at because he doesn't have the "required" thousands of dollars of equipment. There are magazine photographers who use point and shoot film cameras. It doesn't matter really.

So I spent some time in Oregon last week and brought my camera with me. I'm not the best photographer in the world but I like to think I do pretty well for my basic D60 and kit lenses, however I think it's time for me to get into some ND filters and polarizers and I don't know what is the best bang for the buck. Ideally cheaper is better(see kit lenses and D60) but I understand the investment portion of it. Any advice would be great.

Also, whats a noticeable difference between full frame and a cropped body like my d60? Better in low light?

Which would be a good upgrade? Should I shoot for D600? Or a d2/3? A d3 body was listed on Craigslist for $900 but doesn't list the shutter count.

Edit: Based on what I saw, any camera would be good to switch to. Although I don't understand nikon new entry level line. They've got 24 pix sensors and hd video. Aside from FX, why wouldn't you get one of those?

Sorry I don't get on here very often.


the d600 will be way better than the d2/3. newer tech by a long shot.


dx vs fx, well for most people it does not matter. give this a read: https://photographylife.com/nikon-dx-vs-fx


I shoot a D600 and love it. about to send it in to Nikon in hopes they swap it out for a D610 due to the oil specks on the sensor issue.

That's a good read. Thanks. Looks like upgrading won't be feasible unless the camera comes with lenses. How likely is a used one going to have that problem?

Now another question, why are d500s selling for 2k still? Did I miss something there?

The D500 came out AFTER the D600 and is a DX sensor. Its suppose to be the D300's direct replacement finally and is considered a "pro" DX camera. I don't know what Nikon is doing in terms of their naming system. Its very odd. So the D500 is still considered a new camera.


Seems most people have the oil on sensor issue with the D600 but Nikon will replace it with a D610 if it has serviced your D600 twice. So if you found a D600 used for $800, send it in to Nikon, you'll end up with a brand new D610 for a third the cost.

That's only if it shows its been serviced? Or would I have to have them service it too?

if its been to them for servicing in the past for this issue, it will be in their system. early on they were replacing the shutter with the one in the D610 but they still had issues so they started replacing the cameras.


so some people got new cameras, some people didn't but could potentially. Its been a little all over the place really but whether mine has the shutter replaced or the camera, I don't care. Id just like it to be clean and not have to worry about it.


You can always call them and talk to the service department too about all this.
