I have a old generation Cosina 75-300 mm 1:4,5 -5.6 MC Macro lens that I would like to fit onto my Nikon D3100. Is it possible?

I have been looking into getting into video making and realized too late that the camera did not have external audio inputs, so I was wondering what would be my options and best course of action regarding doing external audio? I've been exploring the world of portable recorders and have been looking at ones such as Tascam DR-40 and DR-05, but I'm not sure if those would best suit my needs, and if they have ports for external microphones such as shotgun and boom mics. Thank you very much.

Hi to everyone, I am a beginner in all this so I would like to have some help. I have understood that there is a neccessity for an external flash for my camera especially in rooms. Could you give me some advice what things should I look at when buying an external flash? Can I connect my camera with one of the chiepest ones (those you can find in Amazon/Ebay)? Just don't want to spend my money on flash which won't work afterwards. Thanks in advance!

Hi all - sorry for somewhat long post on this topc... I have a X-M1 with the kit lenses (xc 16-50 + xc 50-230) and have been looking around for practical ways of using it to digitize my old collection of colour slides+negatives and b&w negatives (around 3500+ of the former, and about 11000 of the b&w ones - I'm talking images here, not films or film strips!) I have in the past used Mr. Scan ( http://www.mr-scan.co.uk/index.html ) to digitize my APS film collection with pleasing result, but as...

I received my D3100 as a gift just prior to traveling to Africa. I found I need to be able to capture the animals. I currently have the 55-200mm lens. Will the 70-300mm fit my camera?

I have a nikon D3100 but I wasn’t happy about the iso performance. Therefore I bought a second hand D610. My only lenses are the 18-105 and the 55-300, they are dx lenses. I don’t always use high iso, so its not necessary to use the D610 as my primary camera. That said, I wouldn’t mind ditching the D3100 altogether. What stops me is that Ive read that the picture quality on the D610 is worse with the 18-105 than on the D3100 because the sensor is bigger, and the higher megapixel count shows...

Hi all, Greetings from India! I'm a novice. Just learning for last 1 year. It's a Nikon D3100 and a 50mm f1.8G that all I have. I'm going to shoot a wedding in India during the night. I've no speed-lights or any battery pack for backup. What should be the techniques that I undertake to get good results just by using what I have? What are the hindrances that I might face during the event? Is it fair to use beginner's gears to shoot such an important event? All your suggestions are welcome....

Hi guys quick question for you. I am an a6000 guy with no experience with dslrs. My friend however just had a baby. He's using a d3100 with the kit lens for the first few days of pictures but my intuition tells me the d700 and "thousands of dollars in lenses" he inherited from his dad will take better pictures. Am I wrong in this assumption or is me telling him to start using the d700 a good piece of advice? He's a complete novice but is trying to learn quickly. I have no experience with the...
