Hello Everybody! I am new in this forum site. I was wondering for some idea and got this site from googling. However, let me describe my queries: I am using my Nikon 3000 camera  with the lens that I bought (JAA776DC - AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G). I have some queries about this combination. As per the original website, it has got Auto Focus facility and Its name also means something like that as the name starts with AF! However, I could not find auto focus with it! Now I have following...

Hello, I currently own a Nikon D3000 with the 18mm - 55mm kit lens. I have a small studio (3m x 2m) where I have begun child and family photography. I am frustrated by the quality of my photographs and am leaning heavily on Photoshop and post production in order to get the images ready for my customers. Even then I am still disappointed by the quality of the photographs. The main issues are: - Lack of sharpness - Grain - Dark images even with two large studio lights + softboxes attached -...

I have a very good handle on film photography as I have done many weddings and journalistic events over my 50 years as an amateur and a professional. Last week I didn't know enough to even ask an intelligent question about digital hardware so bear with me, please. I am considering the purchase of a Nikon in the D3000 or D5000 series and I need better understanding. Just recently, I discovered my eleven-year-old Fuji FinePix S602z (3-Meg) makes much sharper pictures than my new Nikon CoolPix...

The body of my Nikon D3000 has a pretty big crack around the viewfinder.  It has never been dropped or hit.   - The camera works and pictures don't seem to be affected - I'm worried the crack will get bigger and create a bigger problem, possibly a mechanical one My thinking is that the body was faulty and weak, but can't find any recalls, has anyone ever heard of this happening? I'd love some suggestion on what you think I should do. Thanks in advance!

Good Day,  I own a D3000 Nikon and after purchasing the camera a few years ago, I was able to find enough lost couch coins to add a 18-200mm after market (Non Nikon) lens. (I rather not disclose the name of the mnfg'r of the lens at this time - I find it somewhat irrelevant) My concern is the proper f-Stop settings on my camera - are they accurate with this lens or do I need to polish up on the guessing game?   The reason I ask is because when I look through my view finder on the camera there...

Hello- I know there have been several similar posts regarding this same question so pardon me if this is a repeat... I am shopping for my first DSLR. I am tired of using a P&S and ready to start learning more about photography. I am having a tough time deciding on the D3200, D3300, D5200, or D5300. I want something I won't get "bored with" in the next few years but at the same time I don't want a camera too advanced for a beginner. I don't expect to get great shots right out of the box but I...

Hi, I am thinking of upgrading from my D3000 to the D5100/D5200. I've had the D3000 since December 2011, and have been happy with it. It was my first DSLR. However, I'd like something that performs better in low-light situations, without the need for a tripod. I'd read that the performance of the D3000 at ISO 1600 or higher is awful, so I haven't really done much shooting beyond ISO 800. Does anyone have any experience shooting at the higher ISOs with the 3000? I like to shoot concerts/bands,...
