  • Excellent idea to have at least a couple of email addresses. I have my primary email through probably the largest Australian provider, and they have a very good mail screening facility; I get very ...
  • Search for "disk defrag" and you will see if the defragmentation is set to run on schedule or not. Win 7 should disable it for SSDs, if it's not disabled, just uncheck the option. Check what ...
  • I'm an old hand at wrangling windows, and for me there's no question that you should let the setup program deal with just the one drive at a time. I installed Win 7 and did everything necessary to ...
  • What program are you using to print the photos? It's usual to use a publishing program (even MS-Word) to arrange the photos on the page, resize them and add text etc. This should preserve the ...
  • The two leading DSLR camera are Nikon and Canon and it's probably better to go with one of those. They come in two sizes, determined by the sensor dimansions. (1) Medium sized (APS-C, Nikon calls them ...
  • You can always take a series of shots with different EC and choose the best. Worth trying even for shots where there's minor issues rather than major black/white queries.
  • 1. The design of the camera precludes an in-built ND filter. Apply to front of lens. 2. No user settings unfortunately. You have to share most settings across PASM. Higher-end Nikons such as the ...
  • Simpler just to talk about "parameters" and ignore the pedants.
  • Very good post. There's no substitute for practice and experimentation. The shot I took of the car (posted earlier) was part of a series taken while testing AF settings, such as "Release vs. Focus" ...
  • "Hey man, I bought this $600 camera and it won't take a properly exposed photo". Personally, I always found this exposure business all rather obvious. Only change in recent years is that ISO has ...
  • The trouble with using the centre point focus followed by recompose is that the focus may not be appropriate in the new framing, particularly if you are working at fairly close ranges; it's just ...
  • I am not familiar with the display on your particular camera, but at first glance it looks particularly uninformative. In most situations, assuming the camera is in the appropriate mode, you ...
  • It will vary a lot depending on the child's age and your budget. My grandson (10 y.o.)was happy with a Nikon CoolPix L26 ($60) and it was OK for the odd snapshot and short movies that kids like. On ...
  • Replied in Lens to D7100
    Might possibly have something to do with the fact that kit lenses are practically given away to make a sale. The guy at the shop would rather you bought something exotic where there was more profit. ...
  • Remember I'm a hobbyist and my lens limit is roughly $US500 (that means about AU$650 retail in Australia). The only compromises that I've had to make relate to the speed of the zooms (f/4 and ...
  • One camera that you should also consider is the Nikon D7100. Apart from the full frame advantage, there's very little to separate the D7100 and D610. If you compare the cost of lenses for these ...
  • Replied in Camera ?
    Nikon D7100, if one day you want to go professional. Better image quality, and features similar to the big end of town.
  • Replied in Camera ?
    All well and good to be highly philosophical about the matter, but both you an JD miss the point that the OP doesn't seem to have a camera yet. Her suggested camera will get her started in the ...
  • Replied in Lens to D7100
    Don't believe what they say about the modern variety of "kit" lenses. Most who have used the 18-105mm say that it is a good lens. The newer 18-140mm is even better. Both are versatile lenses for ...
  • They are keen photographers with two cameras, so two medium zooms for everyday use, and a selection of others. I suggested the 17-70mm mainly because of its macro ability. The OP seems to have a ...
