Also, whats a noticeable difference between full frame and a cropped body like my d60? Better in low light?
I am not a professional photographer just someone that has loved photography since I was young. I have a D7000 (graduated from a D40). For filters I use Cokin P series holder and filters - they are good price and have worked for me. I would have liked a full frame camera but couldn't afford one. I think that they are better in low light, less noise at higher ISO, and also you can get shallow depth of field and better bokeh. I have also been told that it is better to spend money in glass (lenses) because they have the biggest impact on your photo.

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.

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.

Michaelgoesrawr 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?
09-14-2016 04:57 PM
AlTheKillerr 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.
09-09-2016 06:58 PM
Michaelgoesrawr 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?

AlTheKillerr I basically do the same. Im lazy with cleaning but it seems to work just fine on the equipment I have.

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.

You're going to need a camera body that can work with you.
You're going to need an awesome lens in the 35-50mm range.

Kinda depends on what it is you want to photograph; I am from the candid school (this is genetic, I got it from my Dad who was a photographer) ... I like my Pentax K10D because I can set it up so shoot a good frame and not have to eff with it .. because shooting candid there is no second chance.

You'll buy several cameras before you get one that clicks.

Attached: shot when I was at cooking school in Tuscany. Bad lighting (backlight and and very little light inside the kitchen), white and black dress, plus subject motion .. you see a 'kodak moment', and you have maybe a second and a half to set up the exposure and the fill flash, get the flash charged, and shoot the shot. There are still a lot of technical issues with the shot the I got, but it sold a lot of travelers on taking this cooking tour (erm, I never got any bennies for that..)

But .. you need to become one with your camera to be able to really be a photographer.
Yeah I was not going to buy untill then but just wanted a general idea of what I wanted

Michaelgoesrawr Any camera will be good for starters. Any DSLR will have what you need for a beginning class. Around here you can find d40 and d60's in a set for under $300. You really want lenses with low f numbers but they cost more than some cameras. Haha
