    Hello, tell me.
    I need a width for a Kenon 70D.
    Now I’m shooting at 50 1.8, but not everything always fits into the lens.
    I look towards 24mm. Just around 100 euros for a used one.
    Maybe sell 50 and get Sigma 17/50?
    Or would fix be better?
    You also need to shoot portraits and studio photo shoots.

    • B. R. P.

      Considering portraits and studio photo shoots, Sigma would be preferable.

  • Oleg

    Hello, please tell me which color space is better to set in a Nikon camera for the subsequent best color rendering when uploading photos to a computer and printing photos - sRGB or Adobe RGB?

    • Arkady Shapoval

      sRGB without any other options

    • Victor

      If for jpeg - srgb, if for raw (nef) - no difference.

      • Arkady Shapoval

        in fact, there is a difference, if a person is not experienced and does not know how to work with it, then by default, for example, the native converter will also upload to Adobe or something else, and then problems will begin

        • Oleg

          Thank you very much =)

        • Oleg

          I would like to see an overview or some article on setting up SLR cameras with little explanations of what and why. Arkady you have very cool reviews and interesting articles that are very interesting to read =)))

  • Konstantin

    Hello! The photo shows two photographic lenses with M42-EOS adapters. On the left with chip 9, on the right with chip 10 (the ninth and tenth versions, respectively). The adapter with chip 9 is easily programmed using a Canon 5d mark III camera (tested). The focal length of the lens, the maximum aperture are programmed on the chip, and the accuracy of focus confirmation is adjusted. Chip 10 is a complete mystery to me, there is no information. It is positioned on Aliexpress, as well as for the Canon 5d mark III and some other models. How to program the tenth chip?

    Hello. I have a Niokon Z5 and a Goodox 685 flash through an XPro synchronizer. I just can’t understand ... is TTL BL mode supported? I read that you can compare TTL and TTL BL by switching the camera's metering to spot, so the flash will be in TTL mode. But, even comparing the shots and the operation of the flash in the matrix and dot, it was not possible to draw unambiguous conclusions ... Perhaps I created the test conditions poorly (I shoot the doll against the background of a winter window).

  • Andrei

    hello to the community
    everyone says and writes (in the instructions) that the focus confirmation point in Nikon cameras should be green
    I have a Nikon D7500, from the very first day, no colors were found inside except white
    the question is, am I so “lucky” or are these features of the model?
    and if this is “luck”, then how can this be fixed?
    thank you

    • Trueash

      The d7100 is also white. I didn’t particularly bother with this, but I think this is a feature of 7xxx, and maybe some other models

    • Arkady Shapoval

      model feature

  • Vincas

    Hello, Need some advice. There is a choice between Nikon D7100 + with an 18-108 lens or D610 with 50D 1,8 and 80-200 2,8 lenses. The price doesn't matter. Thank you.Vincas.Lithuania. Understanding the basics of photography

    • B. R. P.

      D610 is better, but there will be no standard zoom / wide angle.

    • Victor

      What are you planning to shoot?

      • Vincas

        I will shoot my family, my yard, in the yard, various equipment, mechanisms, everything is at an amateur level Thank you

        • Specialist

          D610

        • Victor

          Definitely 610, the picture, especially from 80-200, will be of a fundamentally different level.

          If it presses directly to have a wide angle, take either a cheap 24-85vr, or some kind of fix in 24mm, for example.

          • Vincas

            Thanks everyone - helped out

  • Eugene

    Greetings to all! It is possible to purchase fujifilm x-t4, but I am not a professional, but an amateur, but I want to be called a photo and video on a commercial basis, the question is: which lenses are best for x-t4?

  • Second

    Good afternoon. I have a question. I bought a Fujifilm X Pro-1 in good condition. Everything about it makes me happy and like it! But there is one fly in the ointment in this barrel of honey. No! Maybe someone will tell you how to be. I didn’t find anything on the Internet. There are eyecups from Nikon film ones, but they are either without diopter or with a minus sign!
    It is not clear how such a very necessary little thing was not inserted into such a camera with the PRO prefix.

    • Basil

      Try to write out from China an eyecup adjustable in diopters, which is equipped with mounting frames (instead of an elastic band) for almost all brands in the kit.

      • Second

        Thank you, but don’t give a link! On Ali, I kind of rummaged through everything, I didn’t find anything!

  • Denis

    I have a D3400. The d7100 turned up, it’s worth changing the “horses”. I shoot nature and macro. What do the pros recommend?

    • Victor

      Naturally, the level of technology is higher. I have 5100 and I'm looking at 7200.

      • Denis

        So, too, the dilemma arose “to change or not to change”, everything was covered and re-read, who is in what much. Who is for a replacement, who says that it is not worth it, there is no benefit, the same thing, only the packaging is different. So I don't know where to go.

        • Victor

          Then only FF if finances allow.

        • B. R. P.

          What's the benefit? The cameras are very different, not “the same”. You will figure out what does not suit you in your cell and whether the matter is in the cell.

  • Nicholas

    Hello everyone. Help me make a decision: There is a Nikon Z7II (bought a year ago after the D750) There are z lenses (24-70 / 2,8, 70-200 / 2,8, 20 / 1,8, 105 / 2,8 with which I’m just trudging) and there was only one af-s-ovsky - 500mm 5,6 PF. The question about her - well, I don’t like how the tracking autofocus on Z? II works on it (it’s late, then it’s past). There is an idea to buy a D850 for her. (Damn, this is again a couple of pieces of money) Who has experience comparing the Z7ii with the D850 - - Worth it ??? Thanks in advance for real experience and advice.

  • Nicholas

    Yes, I wanted to add, the main task for this lens is wildlife and of course BIF. And yet, there is no need for examples from the network, only, please, personal impressions and experience. No need to be smart, I started with my first FED-2 camera. You are welcome. YOUR experience.

    • Ivan

      I won’t be smart, but still FED (Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky).

      • Nicholas

        Damn, you're right.... but that's what I asked for

        • Nicholas

          I keep it as a memory of the Father.

      • Nicholas

        It was about this beauty...

    • Ivan

      You can only be happy for you. You can afford the listed set and even buy a top-end DSLR for an expensive TV. Unfortunately, I can’t share my own experience, but if I may, I’ll tell you my thoughts. The Z-lens line continues to evolve. There is already one super telephoto, several more have been announced. If you look at another system suitable for shooting flying birds, then Olympus has a focusing system aimed just at “capturing” birds:

      • Ivan

        And here is the experience of wildlife photographers who changed their Nikon-Canons to Olympus:

      • Nicholas

        Thanks Ivan for a great article. I, perhaps unfortunately, have strongly “rooted” to Nikon, and I am unlikely to switch to another system. For this elderly couple, this is both an income and a hobby that they have carried through their lives. It is always interesting to read about such people. And of course you can unconditionally believe in such an experience. Thanks again.

      Maybe it's worth helping Arkady and his family financially using his details on the site?

      • Jury

        watch today's video, the places should be familiar, according to the photo of Arkady. Money can't help here, unfortunately.https://fb.watch/bnGI0ZyDS7/

          In evacuation, material assistance is especially important.

      But, as I see it, international payments do not work, and the license was taken away from WebMoney in the Russian Federation. Fiasco.

      • Rodion Eshmakov

        I managed to make a transfer via SWIFT using the details of the Privat-Bank account. However, soon the system will probably be shut down, and sympathetic residents of the Russian Federation do not have much time to help Arkady and his family.

        • Human

          Are you sure that Swift transfers reach the private bank? And not just hang somewhere if the bank is not working very much

          • Rodion

            Yes, I'm sure: according to the status, the transfer is now being processed by Privat-Bank.

  • Kirill

    Hello, I can’t replenish my webmoney purse in Sberbank, alpha and human, it is missing. In order to make a webmoney wallet yourself, you need a scan of your passport, but I don’t really want this. How to replenish from the card, tell me, I can’t find an effective way. Thanks

    • Rodion

      Maybe cryptocurrency?

    Good afternoon ! Please advise to choose a Sigma lens for Canon EOS 6D camera, I have Sigma AF 10-20mm f/3.5. , but it is not for a full-frame camera! I would like something similar but for my Canon!

  • Specialist

    Yeees. When the guns are firing, the muses (photographers too) fall silent. Well, before peacetime, they would rather come. And the Ukrainians also stay alive and healthy.

    Good day!
    I bought a Nikon D5100 with a mileage of 5 tons of frames. Found iridescent stains on the mirror. What does this affect and what is the best way to remove it?

    And another question. I took a Nikon 50mm 1: 1.8D AF Nikkor (MKIII) lens in the kit

    I did not find in the setup menu how to enable aperture control on the lens.
    As I understand it, with this device, the lens only works in the f22 position, on others it gives an fEE error.
    Is there a difference in the set aperture on the lens and the camera?
    I used to use Sony a55 with a standard lens in amateur mode, I didn’t really delve into it.

    • Arkady Shapoval

      1. streaks do not affect image quality
      2. misunderstood, just fix on f22 and control the aperture through the camera menu (using the wheel in the appropriate mode)

      • Viktor

        Thank you!
        So divorce is better not to touch? I read a little information on the topic, someone writes that the focus quality is declining

        • B. R. P.

          A large mirror has nothing to do with af. But if you feel better, wipe it off.

          • Victor

            In general, it has the most direct relationship.

            This mirror is translucent, it sends part of the rays to the pentamirror / pentaprism, and part to a small auxiliary mirror and autofocus sensors. Pollution may well affect the operation of the AF.

  • Oktai

    Good day! I had a problem on nikon d780. When you try to open the “flash control” line in the menu, a window pops up: “This option is not available with current settings or in the current state of the camera.” And the line itself, when selected, is not bright yellow, unlike other menu items. Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Oktai

    It looks like this

  • Stanislav

    Hello.
    I really need advice.
    I shoot travel, city shooting,
    architecture, etc.
    At different times of the day.
    Often in JPEGs.
    There are Nikon D7100 and Sony NEX 6.
    There are also lenses on FF.
    I want FF.
    I am faced with a choice:
    Nikon D800, Nikon D3, Sony A7.
    Tell me what to choose?

    • B. R. P.

      D3 is redundant. D800 if you need exactly 36MP, Sony seems to me better than A7s.

  • Stanislav

    Hello. Perhaps the comment is off topic. But still I would like to voice it.
    I would NEVER think that I would seek advice from a very busy person who created his site for our support. And even more so at this difficult time for my country and for all NORMAL countries in the world.
    And yet, Arkady FOUND THE TIME and paid attention to me to resolve my issue !!!

  • Stanislav

    I'm just an amateur, but Arkady took the time to resolve my issue.
    Thank you very much that we have such professionals in our beautiful country!
    I have been reading Radozhiva for a long time. And now I can say that the creators of sites not only sit in their offices, but also help people in practice.
    Thanks Arkady!!!

  • Anastasia

    Hello. I am a beginner amateur photographer, I have a Nikon D3200. I shoot at 35 1.8 and at helios 50 f 2. I would like to get something better for portraits. I want a blurry background. What do you recommend budget, I also consider used. Up to 15 thousand hryvnia

    • Arkady Shapoval

      nikon 85 / 1.8G, sigma 85 / 1.4 HSM (NOT ART)
      or any 85 2 / 1.8 or 1.4 that has enough money
      You can also try some TV

      • Anastasia

        And what kind of TV set would you advise on Nikon d 3200, so that there would be a good blur of the background. And will yongnuo 85 1.8 or 100 f2 fit me? Which one is better? And sigma is not Art, but what is its name?

        • B. R. P.

          Yongnuo will do. The blur is stronger at 100 f2. Sigma is like this: https://radojuva.com/2017/03/sigma-85mm-1-4-dg-hsm-a-art/

          • Anastasia

            Thank you very much, one more question, which telephoto is suitable?

            • B. R. P.

              Yes, anyone, with a Nikon mount and with a focus motor.

  • Michael

    Hello.
    I have a canon 2000d. I'm not strong in photography yet. I want to buy a Helios 44 lens and an adapter. But I can not figure out which one to buy for my camera. In particular with or without a pusher. Can you tell me which of the Helios 44 and which diaphragm pusher is better? At the moment, for the sake of the lens, it is possible to buy an almost new, unused zenith with a helios 44m-6. But it seems that the diaphragm will not work manually.
