If I understand it correctly, to "exposure bracket" by adjusting ISO over 3 photos, I should set the controls on "M" (Manual) set the Shutter Speed and Aperture at the desired values, and then select "Auto ISO". (And of course pre-select the "bracketing" option.) Would this work? and/or is there a "better way?" Thank you --RUcrAZ p.s. same question on the D5100.

I have a Nikon D610 and my wife has a D5100.  I can't afford to spend $900 on a macro lens, but we are wanting a macro that will work with both our cameras (so we can share use of it).  Her D5100 doesn't have the drive motor for AF so it has to be a G series lens or one with a internal AF drive motor.  She can't use a manual focus lens. We'd like something in the 90mm to 105mm range so we don't have to be right up against our subject.  Would like to take pics of butterflies, dragonflies, etc...

Hello world! I've got a really big problem. I'm in a project to transfer floor plans from physical form to digital form via AutoCAD. I'm shooting the floor plans at the National Archives so I can use only the DSLR+a tripod (without flash ofc). My question is since I can't scan them and need to shoot them with my DSLR and kit lens how can I shoot them so there will not be any distortion/perspective whatsoever. I mean none! 1:1 so I can take the distances from the photo and put them in...

Hi all, i have a D5100, and I'm planning a safari in Etosha (Namibia) in september: would the Tamron 70-300 VC (or the Nikon 70-300 VR) worth the extra money and wight compared to the kit lens 55-200 VR? I'm currently quite happy of the 55-200, light, decent autofocus, good sharpness, it's relatively slow, but I used it only in daylight on the alps, the only really bad thing is the manual focus ring. in your experience passing from equivalent 300mm to 450mm is it really worth? is the quality...

Hi All, I am hoping for a little help regarding an old Vivitar 19mm lens that I have. The lens has the usual aperture lever which is spring loaded and happily slides open the aperture on pushing, but it also has a second lever that I am unsure as to what it is for. See pictures below: Aperture circled in blue / other unknown circled in red Again, aperture circled blue, unknown circled red It looks like this unknown lever should move (it has a gap that would indicate so), but it is stuck...

Hi guys I have few lenses, but still the one that I use the most is the kit 18-55, because I mostly like to take nature photos; occasional sport event (where I need the lens to be fast), kids playing and a lot of indoor photos with normal light. I have a D5100 as camera; got it few years ago, and so far it is enough for my needs. With time I bought few lenses: I have a 55-200 Nikon for tele, a prime 50mm Nikon AF, and an old manual 35mm lens, which I purchased mostly to learn how to take...

Hello Everyone, Long time lurker first time poster. I currently have a D5100 but I am always put off the size and weight of it and end up not taking it out with me as often as I want.  I am looking to purchase a RX1R as the used price for it has dropped and I love the form factor of the camera. Is the RX1R still worth the money compared to the cameras out today? Do you foresee this camera being replaced by the upcoming technologies by Sony such as the curved sensor ? I am hoping to use this...

D5100, D5500: Interval shooting will work with modern lenses, but will NOT work (grayed out) with older legacy lenses that require use in "M" mode. (This has been my recent experience.) .... or is there a way to make it work with these NON-Auto-anything older lenses? Thank you, --RUcrAZ

Hello, I tried to use "Interval Timer Shooting" while using an old Nikkor lens (which required the use of the "M" or "Manual" mode.) The "Interval Timer Shooting" in the menu system was grayed-out. Is this normal? Thank you. --RUcrAZ
