Hello there, Recently I purchased a Nikon d3100 for my dad and it came withe kit lens. He is not new to photography, he understands shutter speed/aperture/iso etc, but this is his first digital camera. This is also the first time I tried a Nikon, having shot Canon all my life. He enjoys the camera but he is really into macro and portraits. I would like to buy him a set of lenses for both, but in my meagre budget, it appears I am stuck with the Micro Nikkor 60mm and the Samyang 85mm. Is there...

Hey all. I have a D3100, about 5 years old with about 14,000 shutter actuations. The shutter is acting up intermittently--there's a line at the top of an image, when it happens. I reset all the settings (assuming operator error) and although it's better, it's still visible. (Kind of disappointing, considering the low number of actuations...) SO, How much might it cost for a new shutter? I can replace with the same model, body only, for $275 on Amazon. Other options might be to upgrade to a...

Hello all! New to dpreview here.. I have been shooting a Nikon D3100 since 2011. I currently have the 18-55 kit lens and the 55-200 VR. I also happen to have two old Nikkor lenses from the 70s that belonged to my dad: the 55mm f 1.2 and the 200 f 4. Needless to say, those are full-frame lenses and difficult to work with on a beginner body like the D3100. Recently, I have found my self shooting more and my love for photography rekindled many-fold! I do some macro, portrait, and also landscape...

hi, I am currently using a Nikon D3100 and am at an intermediate level with my photography. I didn't intend to do any paid work, but I have done some family photos for friends and family and friends of theirs have started to ask me if I would be interested in being paid to do family shoots.  I am now wondering if I should upgrade my camera. I have been looking at the Nikon D810 and I am wondering whether it is worth the outlay right now for the body and which lenses I should invest in.  I'm...

Hi all,  I have just got an external timer for making timelapses with my d3100. I am trying to use ae-lock to keep the same exposure over all the shots in a single timelapse, but it only seems to stay locked for one photo, if that.  Is there a way to make it stay locked for the whole length of the timelapse (an hour or more) Thanks a lotWill
