Hey, The external flash is on the camera.When the flash is on - it fires.There are situations where I shoot many photos fast, some with flash, and some without flash.So I want a quick and simple method to enable/disable the flash.Currently I only see the way is to turn on and off the external flash - takes a few seconds, and also the flash does some unnecessary actions for this.Can I disable the flash without turning it off completely with its on/off button (so I can also enable it quickly...

Hi, im from kolkata, and will be buying my first DSLR this saturday. However i have some queries, and after reading up endless reviews on google and youtube i couldnt find any good answers. The thing is that, i will start with an entry level DSLR, because my budget isnt very high. After reading reviews i had singled out Nikon D3200 (Rs21,000), D3300 (25,000) and D5100 (24,000). The reason i didnt go for canon is because 1) the ones that will be within my budget are 1100D and 1200D and the...

I have Nikon D5100 for 4 years, and I like the features very much than other DSLR in same class. But no one is perfect, It has an issue with slow autofocus. On everyday use I can't use the live view, it's too slow, and still I can't use it in sport photography even using the viewfinder. I plan to upgrade my this D5100 in the future, especially with DLSR Nikon with no AF issue and still in D5100 class and still in Nikon because I have 3 EN-EL14 spare batteries. Is it worthy, upgrade my Nikon...

I've had a D5100 for a couple years, no problems focusing. I took it for a weekend trip without a case, and though I was quite careful with it, I wouldn't be surprised if it weathered a couple bumps. Whether or not that happened, the autofocus isn't working well anymore. On my wide angle, it goes from one end to the other, without settling on a length. On my 18-200mm it occasionally focuses, but not reliably. On my 50mm it focuses consistently, but seems slower (or maybe that's in my head).I...

Hi all. Im Assel. I'm a young female photographer that shoots all types of images in the New York City and NJ area. I Just recently decided to pursue my lifelong dream full time. Graduated from playing with the Nikon D5100 and Canon Rebel XSi to the D750 and am doing shoots full time. I'm looking for a sponsor so I can join NikonPro and to network/make some friends here as well. I'm new and it's hard to get sponsored into a program when I'm still building my network. My work :...

My ISO was at 100 and F11, however, you can see all the noises in the video. Not sure how to change it? You can see it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10qmoefjeQQ However, I recorded the Nikon the first time in good light condition and it wasn't bad at all. Any idea? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaWulk43WEI Thanks :)

Is it silent or close to silent? I'm looking to do stealth candid photography and am looking for a APS sensor mirrorless camera with a near silent shutter. I find the shutter on the Sony NEX-5N from 3 years back way too loud and distracting for this. Is the A6000 significantly quieter? --Nikon D5100 | Samsung TL500 (EX1) | Sony NEX-5N | Nexus 5

Is it silent or close to silent? I'm looking to do stealth candid photography and am looking for a APS sensor mirrorless camera with a near silent shutter.  Is the NX500 close enough?  Everything else about the NX500 sounds fantastic. I find the Sony NEX-5N we have from a few years back way too loud and distracting for stealth candids.  Hoping the NX500 will be much quieter. THANKS! --Nikon D5100 | Samsung TL500 (EX1) | Sony NEX-5N | Nexus 5

I have a Nikon D5100.  As for software, I've just bought Adobe Lightroom 6 and I still have Adobe Photoshop CS6. But I'm totally confused about workflow. What I used to do, was to shoot in jpg, import into my Mac with Apple's own Image Capture software, process away in Photoshop CS6 and then store in iPhoto. (Probably completely wrong!) However, as I understand it, shooting and importing in RAW (in my case, Nikon's NEF) is more recommended in order to avoid loss of information. I'm not sure...

Hi, Can anyone recommend a decent Generic charger for the Nikon D5100 to replace the Nikon MH-24 Charging unit? One of the plug ‘prongs’ unfortunately snapped off on my charger unit whilst moving house. Like to keep things branded usually but can’t really bring myself to pay £47 for a new Nikon charger so the generic cheaper option is the route I would rather go. Did call Nikon to see if they could supply a new ‘plug part’ for want of a better description, as these slide of the actual charger...
