We take our very first question from Australia as Diane wonders if the flippy screen on the D750 will make her look less professional in her wedding photography. She also asks about if she should worry about the D750’s light leak/flare issue and how this body performs in low light
As a D750 owner, I answer her questions and give her some informed advice.
