Hi, I own a Nikon D3000, shoot RAW all the time and and use a 30 MB/s SanDiskUltra sd card. My camera takes about 3-4 secs to write the image after a shot and the image preview to show up in the LCD preview. Is there a away I can speed this up? Is the bottleneck my SD card or is it just the processor on my D3000? Thanks, panoMan88
I'm looking to upgrade my system soon and I have a bit of a dilemma. I'm looking to get more into landscape photography over the course of the summer as it is something I enjoy doing. However, I can't decide what would be a wiser investment - a wider lens or a better body. I've looked around and have narrowed my choices down based on specs and cost to the Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 lens and the D7000 body. The Sigma gets some good reviews, seems to perform well for what I want and is within budget....
Hello everyone, I am an experienced photographer, and have worked with continuous softbox lights for filming in the past. However, now I'm trying to find two to three lights for a permanent studio structure to catalog small to medium sized items. The studio will have constant everyday use, so quality is important. Like I said above, my criteria preferably would be (x2) Florescent Strobe (white) Umbrella lights. Is there a brand or place to buy this in a complete kit that would have...
Going on a European riverboat cruise and want a nice zoom lens without a large expense. I won't have a tripod so it needs a stabilizer and good picture quality for those distance pictures taken from the deck. For the price ratio it seems to be a sigma 70-300 or tamron 75-300 but unsure which one. Also what is the general opinion on refurbished Nikon lenses for sale found on Amazon or eBay? I'd appreciate any help in this area!
Hello...I'm new to DPREVIEW...I'm also new to photography as well as DSLR cameras...purchased a "new to me" Nikon D3000, middle of February and love it but I'm finding the lens 18-55 that came with the camera very limiting. I'm looking at the Tamron 18-270 and the Sigma 18-250...I've read the review on both lens, but for the life of me not sure which would be best or if it is simply a case of pick one??? If anyone has used one or both and would consider passing along any thoughts I'd...
I've been using a D60 with the 18-55 lens from my wife's D40 - she now has an 18-200 - for a few years now with no problems but recently, the auto-focus on my lens has been playing up; sometimes refusing to focus until I have switched to manual, moved the focus ring slightly and then switched back to AF. We bought our DiL a D3000 last year and, as she also got an 18-200, I thought I could use her 18-55 VR lens to replace my temperamental one. However, all the photos I've taken with the new...
I just purchased a new Nikon D3000 a few weeks ago and now the battery is stuck inside the battery chamber. I do not wish to try and force it as it might crack the chamber or body. I did not force the battery and have taken it out to recharge several times. I've opened the door and tried to tap with opening towards the ground but no dice. Any tricks or am I going to have to take it to Best Buy and have their folks charge me an arm and leg? Any help would be appreciated Ironmike
