Hi guys, Searched the forum but didn't see something like this yet. I am new to this particular subject and not sure if this is normal. Here is the issue/question I have... I got a Nikon D5200 and SB910 Flash. Yesterday I got my "Yongnuo RF-603N Wireless Flash Trigger" from Amazon. Pretty nice unit for the price. Set-up was straight forward and worked right away.  Anyway, the thing I noticed is, when I am using the remote trigger, the '?' icon flashes on the view finder. Here is what I am...

I am looking for a way to improve the battery-life for my Nikon D5200, and I am considering to buy a battery grip. Nikon has not made any battery grip for this model, and it was not intended that a battery grip should be used, which means that those available had to connect within the battery slot, have an external wire to connect to the shutter etc. I was considering the Meike battery grip. http://www.amazon.com/MeiKe%C2%AE-Vertical-Battery-Camera-EN-EL14/dp/B00BIEWUAA Can anybody recommend...

I currently have a D5200 with the kit lens and a 70-300 zoom. Relatively new to DLSR.  I am wanting to get a zoom lens for both portraits and landscapes. I am NOT a professional photographer. I just like to shoot. I will also be shooting some action shots, like a retriever entering the water, ducks flying,  etc. I have been looking at the 24-70 at 2.8. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Hi, I'm pretty set on getting a D5200 for video work. I want to keep the budget as low as possible and the camera is around £339 at the moment (body only). The D5300 is £497. I don't need GPS or Wifi. I don't necessarily need 60 fps. They're pretty identical in terms of image quality as far as I've heard. The only potential significant difference that I can identify for my purposes is fixed pattern noise. I've never come across it or at least I'm not aware of it. I've read that the D5300...

Dear Friends, I am getting into DSLR world and tried T5i and D5200 - loved D5200 so decided to stick with Nikon and thinking of getting D5300. I will be using this for family photography (kids concerts, dance performance, vacation). Thinking of buying Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM to make it an all purpose lens - with budget of 1000$ for both body and lens, it does fit the budget but not sure if this is a good choice? My other option was to go with Nikon 18-140.  Is there any other...

Folks, what is the best "how to book" for a beginner using a Nikon D5200?  I know with my Nikon D90 I bought supposedly a top rated book for the D90 but it really was just a more descriptive user guide of the factory manual.  I was pretty disappointed with that.  I found a learned 10 times more talking to 2-3 pro photographers than I ever got from the book.  They gave me some general guidelines for about 5-6 types of photo's that I would take.  These guidelines worked great.  My daughter has...

Hello, this is my first post! I was given a camera Nikon d5200 and 3 lenses (50mm 1.8, nikkor kit lens 18-55, nikkor 55-300 VR) for my birthday in February. This is my first interchangeable lens camera so i am still really only just learning the ropes. I love the 50mm prime and i have found the the zoom to be really sharp but i have been a bit frustrated with the kit lens particularly when zoomed out past 40mm - i don't seem to be able to get such nice sharp images with it. i think it might...

On this Thursday, I promised some of my classmates that I would shoot my school's first junior varsity basketball game. Except I don't ever shoot sports. I thought I would use this as an opportunity to expand my range. I usually shot a few portraits and people, if you count school events. I might be able to snag a seat up front but there are no guarantees because I would have to ask the coach first.  I have a nikon 55-300mm lens with a very small aperture range, its f4.5-5.6, so it isn't...

Hello All, Just purchased a new d5200, used it today for the first time, and after downloading card to computer, happened upon a few images such as this one. Maybe 3-4 out of around 500 images taken have something strange like this....another has the line down the middle, but shadowed on left side, and the other has a dark blue band at the bottom, which looks almost infrared or something similar.....Card was formatted before using, and photos downloaded completely before I examined them or...
