I'm looking to upgrade my well used D5100. I'm going to be doing a lot of night football field (high school marching band) photography this fall. I also do a lot of theater and dance recital photography. I'm not a pro, but I've learned a lot over the years. I know well that there may be 1 or 2 "keepers" for 100 photos.The low light photos I take with my D5100 are good, but not great. I don't dare go over 4000 ISO because of the noise. I have the Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 and it does a good...
I am a beginner looking for a dslr camera . I am most concerned about taking quality pictures in low light settings A friend told me to look at the Nikon d3300 or the Nikon D5100 which seems old I looked at a Canon EOS d70, and the Sony A6000, they were beautiful but to expensive Does anyone have any thoughts or options or other options, eventually I would like to add on with a bigger lens Thanks
Hi, I am trying to decide which camera body i should buy for shooting concerts. I can have a used D300 or a used D5100 in similar price. which one is better for low light conditions and moving subjects? I have no problem handling each one of them. i just care a lot about quality. Any thoughts? Thanks! P.S.: Of course my next step will be a satisfying lens. f 2.8 if possible

Does anybody know if either of the 18-140mm or 55-300mm has better image quality than my current lenses, used on my D5100? I'm always looking to get the best results I can. Of course, one nice thing about having the 18-140mm for a "walk around" lens is it's greater "reach", so that I would less frequently have to swap out to the longer lens. Now, I would not be interested if the image quality would not be as good as the 18-105, which is why I am asking! Thanks.
I am trying to make a decision about my photography hobby. Been at it for a couple years and have been using a D5100 and a P900. Recently gave up on the P900 cause I could never get the performance and satisfaction in my photos. After selling it I'm considering some new equipment. My question is would it be better to give up on my D5100 and replace it or keep it and buy a Tamron 150 600 lens? The D5500 is my camera of choice. I can afford to do one but not both. My goal in photography is to...
I will go to seven days hike on west coast trail, BC, Canada. Since I need to carry lots of stuff, I have to make decision on which camera gear I should pack. I have Nikon D600 and a set of lens (24-120 f/4, 20 f/1.8, 35 f/1.8, 50 f/1.8, 60 f/2.8, 85 f/1.8, 70-200 f/4). I think the maximum weight for photography should be less than 1Kg. So far, my favorite choice is D600 + 20mm. However, I can also borrow my mom's D5100 + 18-105mm. The weight of this combo is within the range and I am pretty...
I am a scientist and I work in Antarctica. When I am there, the landscapes are quite stunning. The vast nothingness is overwhelming--being in the middle of an ice sheet with no one around for hundreds of miles is like standing on a frozen white ocean. There are no people, no animals, no plants, no colors, no shadows, no smells--there's nothing. But when I try to capture the extreme nothingness on film, it always ends up looking like a boring picture of nothing. I want to up my photography...
