Hi, I have a D3100 and I have my focus set to single-point focus.  Somehow along the line, my single point focus has switched from the center dot to the dot on the far-right and I cannot figure out how to change it back to the center.  Please help!

Hi guys, Recently I got Nikon 300mm F/4 from ebay to use it with my Nikon 3100 body for birding and nature. But it turned out that images are somehow blurred and not clear which is very frustrating! Below are two images with test page shot from 7m first one is wide open F4 and the second is F6.3 as you can see even with F6.3 images are dim and far from being clear.  I don't post any images of birds and nature because they are no good and  with these results this lens is practically...

Hey everyone! So My Nikon D3200 has been shooting incredibly grainy pictures lately and I can't figure out why. I have had to resort to shooting with my older D3100 body. The grain is not from my ISO, as it persists regardless of what my ISO settings are at, and I've tried shooting with ADL on and off, but there is no change. My pictures are also grainy in bad and good lighting conditions, and I've tried to play around with any and every possible setting that I could think of, but I'm still...

Yep, I'm confused. Here are the photos. Both shot in RAW, no sharpening. What's odd is that the 7200 seems to be vastly sharper in the bottom left, where it says 'HARFORD CP', but the 3100 seems to be sharper in the centre, where it says 'Yadsworthy'. Both were shot using live view focusing, with a 50mm F 1.8 G at F5.6, on a tripod. I'm really quite confused by this. Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks.

I am using a D3100 with an af-s nikkor 18-55 lens, borrowed from a friend. I attach the lens per the manual, but once its on it wiggles and even falls off occasionally. when it wiggles the contacts break and the display loses f/# information. I'm concerned I'm not attaching it properly although I've reread the instructions several times and tried carefully to do it right. Anyone recognize this problem or does it sound defective? thx,

OK, I understand that my D3100 doesn't have IR abilities.  I've read several old threads about 2 part units using a receiver and a transmitter via the GPS port.  Every link I find that references a unit someone else has bought leads to an expired product (product not available at this time... blah blah  blah) Can anyone point me to current wireless remote that uses the MC-DC2 port?  I would love to say that money is not object but I can't. Thanks for your help and happy photography to all!

I have just bought a Nikon D3300 to replace my Nikon D3100. Both came with a 18-55mm lens. My D3100 lens had A/M and VR on/off sliders on it.. The lens that came with the D3300 doesn't. Is that normal? EDIT: This YouTube unboxing video shows the lens with the A/M and VR on/off sliders. How much worse is my lens, that doesn't have them?
