So, I am a hobbyist who takes mostly pictures of her adorable five children racing around and occasionally nice portraits and group shots of close friends and family. My D3000 I have LOVED for the past few years, but am ready for something with a few more megapixels for bigger prints and some better ISO options. Should I stay with the entry level compact cameras (D5200) or do the mid-size cameras (possibly the D7100) offer that much more? I don't want to get another entry-level and find...
I'm waiting for Black Friday to see if there is any good deals for what I need. I basically want the best bang-for-the-buck point-and-shoot camera that I can get with a max budget of around $350 shipped. I'm just a newbie but my last DSLR was a Nikon D3000 that I sold because I needed money. Any ideas? Please help. Thanks.
So, I am an amateur. I own a Nikon D3000 and most of the time I am shooting with a 50 mm lens and I love taking my kids portraits with it, but sometimes family members want me to take their family pictures and the 50 doesn't do so well with that, so I am left with my kit lens (18-55mm) and not loving the results. I hear a lot of people talk about the 24-120mm but I don't want to fork out that much cash, I am looking around $500 for a good lens that will take some nice family pictures. Any...
Hi, I’ve been shooting with my D3000 for several years now and I think it is time to reexamine my setup. I’m about to upgrade to a D3100/3200 or D5100, mainly for video and better high ISO performance. I’m not sure which direction I’ll go, but this isn’t my main concern. I currently have the kit 18-55 VR, the 55-200 VR and the 35/1.8. So far, 98%+ of my photos are with the 35/1.8. This is because I prefer to zoom with my feet, I like an unobtrusive look and I usually shoot in low light (often...
Hi guys, This is my first post to this forum, I have the above question.. I know the two camera s are of two types, D3000 being a DSLR and Fujifilm one being a superzoom.. Actually my initial plan was to go for a superzoom (Fujifilm HS35EXR) , but heard from some friends that those are not so good as DSLR s in low light.. considering the amount of additional few more bucks that I have to put to go for D3000, which is the DSLR I found with the lowest price.. to get that advantage of having...
I got my D3000 back in November and am loving taking pictures, trying to keep up a little momentum - had some photos used from a local event in the local press, local school fair and a recent scooter rally.. I want to be able to shoot more FPS without the wait for buffering that I currently have. I shoot RAW only, for the flexibility on PP. I'd like to stay on SD (only because it's what I know) so my options seem to be D7000,D7100 or D300s what would you recommend? I won't get into the glass...
I currently have a D3000 that I have greatly outgrown, with it a 55-300mm and sb-700 flash. I would like to upgrade and am currently leaning toward the D5100 and D90. I know that the D5100 has much better image quality, and one big reason for upgrading is noise, but, I want auto fp, because whenever I shoot in the sun, it is too bright and I have to stop down a lot, so no good bokeh. I would like a D7000, but it is much too expensive. I will also be buying refurbished, unless Adorama does the...
I am an amateur photographer who's dream is to become a sports photographer - mainly in football. The question i have is whether or not i should invest in some new equipment especially suited to sports photography. I currently have a Nikon D3000, which i purchased about a year ago to help get me started and to feel comfortable with using a digital SLR. This came with a standard Nikon 18-55mm lens and i also received a Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di LD Macro Lens for Christmas. I realise that...
