Re: 3NE2NR Official Phototakerouter & Photography Thread...

Nice nikon 12-24! I agree, that tokina f/2.8 would do much better on events esp when flash isn't allowed (eg church weddings or museums or live theatre performances). My own Sigma 10-20 f/4.5-5.6 does well but I occasionally found myself wanting a bit more light in those same situations I listed abo...

Re: 3NE2NR Official Phototakerouter & Photography Thread...

Got some new gear!!! The ol' D200 was starting to show some age and get long in tooth (the in-camera meter wasn't metering properly anymore and exposures were no longer accurate unless in spot-metering mode) so I decided to see what the internets had in store, and found a pretty sweet deal on a cert...

Re: Diesel Injector Purge...

This method will work for direct injection diesels where the pump feeds directly to the injectors.

This won't work for the 2.5 2kd-ftv hilux, because it's common - rail. U can bypass the fuel filter and use the bottle of fuel additive there, but don't let it run dry or you'll airlock the engine.

The hardest thing is getting the shocks in stock for good price.
All you need after that is 17 & 19 metric sockets... And maybe 45 mins of your time.

Re: Tech Thread - Nissan Frontier, Navara, Pathfinder.

do it by mileage bro - synthetic oils don't have an "expiry date" per se like old school mineral oils do.
And when it comes to rubber seals, they last a lot longer than old school nissan seals used to.

Save ur money.
