Hi all, I have a D5100 with the 18-55 kitty and the 50mm 1.8G. I recently took just-for-fun photos at two of my friends' weddings (the events WERE covered by paid photographers). Both were indoor, evening functions. I did have a speedlite and used it almost all the time. The few shots that were taken without the speedlite made me feel that I could use a faster zoom; enter the 17-50mm 2.8 zooms. I've been looking at the tamron 17-50mm 2.8 (NON-VC) as it is the only one within my budget. Now,...

Hi, I'm a student journalist who also has quite an interest in photography and television/video news (those are my two specialisms on my degree). Basically I love my D5100 but am starting to find numerous shortcomings that are bugging me. I'm semi-settled on two alternatives I liked which I am going to try soon in a shop are the GX7(more cheap lenses, better video, image stabilization and looks sexy) and the Sony a6000(good AF, apsc sensor and great image quality), but I'm not 100% sure which...

I just bought a snazzy $25 ringflash to shoot metal objects macro with my 18-200 lens.  It is called an RF550 and though generic, it seems to be the (only?) one available with diffusers to prevent glare on metal objects. I think I have figured it out that I have to set he lens to 50mm in order not to get blackening around the corners. I am hoping that the lens will focus properly at 50mm (it doesn't seem to like that) but that isn't my problem at the moment. Nikon told me that with this...

Well I'm planning to buy my first DSLR. Though many people are suggesting D5100, but I'm kinda leaned towards the D3300? Please suggest. Also suggest me some cheap lenses. I Don't wanna be a photographer. Just for casual indoor use.

I have one Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm kit-lens (52 mount) and another Nikon P600. Can anyone suggest me 1. Whether Raynox DCR250 macro is compatible with these two camera? 2. Whether Raynox MSN202 macro is compatible with these two? 3. If both are compatible, which one is better to have?

I've had my D90 for a few years now.  I shoot mainly landscapes but like to shoot events for my Church also and have done a couple of shoots for friends, prom photos of the kids, family shots, etc and may at some point start doing paid jobs.  I am wanting something with better high ISO performance than my D90.  My wife's D5100 even has it beat.  I am debating between the D5300, D7100 and the D610.  I have for a while now wanted to go FX and my wife says I won't be happy unless I go ahead and...

I am looking to buy a new camera primarily for my wife and also for my occasional use My hands shake a lot and image stabilization is a big criteria for me. Also I would love to have manual zoom options which I can play around with. outdoors and zoom would be a plus but I am not sure if I can carry around huge lens for that purpose. I have a canon s3 IS and have rarely used it despite the fact that it takes good pictures and videos. My wife (primary user of the camera) could be taking lots of...
