Nikon D800 HELP needed!

Help! I can’t download my RAW images from the CF memory card into my PC. I’m using Windows 7, to download I use ACDSee Pro 3 & Lightroom 2.3. I have been using a Nikon D700 up until now and downloading in the same way with no issues!
I have a wedding photoshoot on Saturday so I need to fix this ASAP,, HELP!

24-70 2.8f nikkor lens

I was just wondering what everyone thinks of the 24-70mm 2.8f nikkor lens to add to my kit for weddings / portraits. I have a Nikon D700 & D200 – and already have the 18-200mm -(but not suitable for a full frame D700), 35mm 1.8f, 14-24mm 2.8f & 70-200nn 2.8f ….. I’m thinking whether this lens would be a good addition?
Thanks in advance!


My new photography was launched today!
I’m very excited as finally I have something where I can direct potential & current clients, and my friends also :o)

This website has taken about 2 months to design and put together so I’m very happy (and relieved) it’s finally done, of course it will always be a work in progress;o)

Here it is so please check it out

My Reflection of THE CITY

When I was asked to review the new RB book The City , I waited in anticipation for my copy as I know that, from previously purchasing RB books, they are always of the highest quality. Once my copy arrived, I was not only impressed with it’s sleek, satin black book pocket and cover but also with the amazing work from various mediums which this book holds.…

After devouring this book over and over, I have chosen a few favourites, which believe me was no easy job!
