Hello, I'm thinking of buying a dslr as a second body and I'm on a budget, so I was wondering what would be a better decision, to buy a used mid level dslr like Nikon D80, or a new entry level like D3100, or even Canon 1100D? What are your thoughts on that? --Inkheart

today i've received a used Nikon D3100 set I bought on ebay. i took the first picture with it and went online right away to check the shutter count. much to my surprise the number is 138, which seems suspiciously low. in additional, the serial number from the picture's data does not match the serial number on the actual camera. i contacted the seller (ebay camera shop) about the problem, and asked them to explain the issue, and identify the origin of the camera. they said they buy them in...

I am looking for a good low light, zoom lens that I can use to photography my daughter in her theatre productions.  I have a Nikon D3100, and I already own a 55-200 mm lens. I would love to have something that brings it just a little closer if possible because sometimes I have to be in the back of the theatre to take my photos.  My budget is under $1000.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

hi, there's a total solar eclipse happening in 2017 and I really want to take photos of it. I have a Nikon D3100 which I'm happy with (I needed it for a class last semester) I'm just wondering what lens y'all would recommend me to use. I know it has to be a telephoto lens, but other than that I'm not really sure. thanks, Amethyst Wildcat

Hey, this is my first post here :) I've had the D3100 for a while now but looking to upgrade. I was thinking of either the D3300 or the D5100. The D5100 looks much better on paper (I've been looking at this comparison) but the D3300 seems pretty even and it's much newer?  Would it be silly not to get the D5100 just because it's older? They cost about the same. Thanks!

Hi everyone, I would like some input on a decision I'm about to make. Quite a while ago I bought a d3100 and I like the camera. Back then I was just finding my way around with photography. Turns out what I like the most is doing "street photography" (yeah, I know). Now I find that even with the relatively small d3100, with it's bulky appearance and audible clicks the reactions and behaviours I get out of people are quite different than when I borrow my girlfriends mirrorless (from her work,...

I have a Nikon D3100 with a two lenses, 18 - 55, and 55 - 200.  My daughter does gymnastics and I am always trying to take pictures.  Half the time the pictures are shaky even thought I have the "VR" on and I am trying to stabilize the camera; I usually use the zoom lens and have it maxed out.  My other problem is that the pictures are often dark; even though there is lighting in the building.  I have seen the professional pictures from the meets and I am blown away with their pictures.  I...

Greetings,I want to dive into photography and wanted to change to a DSRL. My camera so far is an old Canon Power Shot SD770 with Digital ELPH, but I wanted to move to a DSRL for better results and more liberty of composition. I wanted a camera that's going to be both an upgrade and an opening of possibilities for me into photography.However, I wanted a camera who also could be used by my family, for everyday photos as well. I was deciding on the D3200 since it's in a good price these days,...

Hi! I am a beginner and I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I have a entry level nikon and I feel like it is time to get a more advanced camera but I am somewhat broke and can't afford a new one. I have found a d100 that is in my price range but I know that it is older and thats fine with me but I am wondering if it is too old to be worth getting. I am worried that my d3100 is more advanced that the older d100. So should I go ahead and get the d100 or wait until I have...

Hi all, I'm buying my first SLR and for my current budget I have spotted these three deals: Nikon D3100 + AF-S DX 18-105 VR kit = 394€ Nikon D5100 + AF-S DX 18-105 mm kit = 438€ Nikon D3200 + AF-S DX 18-105 mm kit = 438€ I'm choosing a 18-105mm kit lens because I want to take some closeups. I've been playing with a Canon 550D with a 18-155mm IS lens and I really like the >55mm option. I would be taking the majority of the pictures indoor (portraits mostly), so I think good performance in low...
