  1. Never used Photo Mechanic but I was just about to pull the trigger on it when I found FastStone Image Viewer. It’s free to use and I use it for all my weddings. I literally only use it to cull images and I’m able to make 2 passes through 3000+ images in less than 2 hours.

  2. GLWS. Very tempted but can't afford it right now. Excellent price point though.

  3. If you use the R2Pro II trigger you can just double press the group button and it turns that group off, double press again and it goes back the previous setting.

  4. I literally just discovered this about 2 days ago!!!

  5. Which trigger do you have? On my xpro-c, it would only be 8 presses total:

  6. Because my AD200s have TTL functionality, it’s extra mode presses to go from manual to off

  7. Showed up today. Everything is in great shape! Thanks!

  8. Played F8 one lengths for a year and a half. I really liked them for the first few months, but that was before I started taking lessons.

  9. I used to use a pair of spider holster black widows before switching to my holdfast. I liked how the weight was on my waist rather than my upper body but I shoot weddings and needed a faster way to switch between camera bodies. I still have one of the holsters and could send it to you if you want. It’s just sitting around collecting dust. PM me if you’re interested

  10. How well does the AF work with the FTZ adapter? My D750s still have another season or two left in them but my next bodies are going to be Nikon mirrorless. I'm just trying to decide if I should start planning on all S lenses ($$$$$) or if the pro-level G lenses will suffice.

  11. I don’t have any hands-on experience with native Z glass yet, but I did spend a ton of time looking into user’s images taken with them. Technically they’re super impressive and the performance seems amazing. But I actually prefer the way the G glass renders most of the time- at least for the two that I intend to use. And there simply is no Z equivalent of the 105 1.4E yet. So I ended up sticking with f mount. FTZ works as flawlessly as they promise from my experience. I’m super impressed, and AF is not a disappointment at all coming from D750. In fact, it’s a huge improvement for my use case. The whole reason I went mirrorless is for live view AF and video. And eye AF is spot on with the 105 wide open... locks right on and stays there!

  12. That’s good to hear. I love the rendering of Nikon’s G glass as well. I’m very happy with my Nikon d750s so hearing that things will only get better is music to my ears. My last experience with mirrorless was a little bit of a letdown (shot Fuji for a wedding season). Appreciate the info!

  13. To be honest, just about any dslr or mirrorless camera you purchase today should be more than capable of handling most types of photography outside of paid/professional work. The D7500 is a fine camera and would serve you well. That being said, if you aren't opposed to purchasing used I would recommend looking at the Nikon d610. These can be found for less than $650 in excellent condition, have a full frame sensor (cleaner images at high ISOs) and you don't need to worry about the 1.5x crop factor when considering lenses (helpful when looking at wider angle lenses). Just my 2 cents.
