Hey guys,      I'm new to this forum and still on the green side of photography.  I'm starting to get into the world of flash photography and need some help with my setup. My equipment is as follows: Nikon D5100 (no commander mode) Nikon SB-910 speedlight Yongnuo YN-565EX speedlight Yongnuo RF-603n Radio triggers (2 receivers for now) My question is, how do I set this up so the radio triggers make my flashes go off?  This is what I've currently tried: On camera, I've placed one radio...

Hi, I have a problem with my D5100. The Camera drains battery even when it's off and it's not using. After 4-5 days one bar of battery indicator is gone. Next day second one, and after 7 days battery is dead. Do you heard about that kind of issue? What could be the reason?

Dear all, I have a NIkon d5100, and last year I dropped it on the floor. It was in a cheap protective bag, so from outside there were no problems. However, when I turned it on, it didn't work - I didn't get the image on the small screen (black square), and when I took pictures I also got black squares as results instead of the pictures (also checked on the computer). Then the camera was unused for about 8 months. The battery didn't have any power anymore, but when I charged it and turned it...

I am looking at this tripod model Kenner KT-C614 (on ebay) which seems quite reasonable for an affordable price. It is a carbon fibre tripod with a magnesium alloy ball head under $200 and supports up to 8Kg of equipment weight. I am thinking about purchasing this but am not sure if this will be a good choice. I will be using it with my Nikon D5100 and a Nikkor 18-140 lens, mostly for long exposure night sky photography in a windy environment. I couldn't find much info about this on Google...

Question 1: I often get the effect shown in the image below.  (I'm not talking about the Chromatic Aberration.) When I take pictures in the woods or sometimes in other areas where the foreground is dark and the background it bright the light bleeds/smears over the darker parts of the foreground making lowering the contrast of the image and removing detail and the edges of leaves etc.    What is this phenomenon called?  Is it a type of lens flare? Question 2: Is there a special Photoshop tool...

Hello - I took this picture last night with a Nikon D5100, f9, ISO 100, 30 secs and got contrast banding "rings" around the lightning. How can I avoid this? Thanks, Aaron

Hello, I just bought an old tamron 28-200mm lens and I'm trying to set up on my camera... I know that AF won't work but I never have a tamron lens so I'm not understanding exactly how to set up to manual... I just tried to rotate the ring in the front but nothing actually happens, I just rotated until the end and the image has no changes so I was thinking if it has something that I need to do first to put in manual mode?

My S100 got a fingerprint on it.  How do I clean the lens since the tiny opening provided by leaf closure mechanism makes it almost impossible to get to any part of the lens other than the very middle? I can't see any way to wipe the entire lens.  I'm a little afraid to push a wet cleaning tissue down in there for fear it will squeeze cleaning fluid out and onto the lens. --http://www.factsfacts.com/photos.htmOlympus C-8080, Canon SD700 IS, Panasonic FZ50, Nikon D5100, Canon PowerShot S100

I am looking for an auto focus macro lens for my Nikon D5100. I intend to use it to take macro photo's of flowers and saltwater coral within my aquarium. I have been given the option to purchase a Tamron lens used $375. Can anyone tell me if this lens would be any good at what I am looking to do and/or if this is a decent price?
