Hello, new to the forums here. I take a lot of photos - nearly all are "nature" photos and most are landscape, but I also take a good dose of wildlife (mainly birds, but also flowers). I use a Nikon d3200 (has an APS-c sensor). For the landscape (and flowers/foliage) I use the kit lens which is a Nikon DX series AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6. For wildlife (birds and such) I use a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6 ED. In a nutshell, I like the 55-300mm a heck of a lot better: the images are...

Hi, I already own a Nikon D60 with 18-200 nikkor and I'm planning to change the camera because of some dust on the sensor that I cannot remove. I'd like to know if I could have a similar image quality using a FZ1000 on the same range of the 18-200 vs using a D3200 or if I loose too much in terms of IQ. I'm considering the FZ1000 also for the wider lens and for the tele capability vs 18-200 and for the fixed lens that had to prevent the dust on the sensor. Does anyone have experience about...

I have noticed that there is some nasty Nikon D3200 camera profile differences especially between ViewNX2 and Lightroom 5.6 when rendering RAW. It looks like some dark colors are a bit wrong in Lightroom Camera Standard. Same thing happens in all camera profiles in Lightroom except Adobe Standard. I don't like Adobe Standard output because it alters the image other ways like a bit different colors and lower contrast. 1. ViewNX2 Camera Standard 2. Lightroom Camera Standard 3. Lightroom Adobe...

Hello guys. So I'm just new to photography world and I bought my camera which is Nikon d3200 last year. I bought this because it's good to have this kind of camera for beginners. So it comes with the standard lens which is 18mm-55mm and 55mm-200mm and some other stuffs. I've used the 18mm-55mm lens for indoor photography (half and full body). I've also used both lens outdoor just to practice photography. So my question is, if I want to buy a new lens for portrait photography what will you...

I am looking forward to buying my first DSLR, and am stuck between these three choices. I have used Nikon D3200 and Canon 1100D for quite some time now, but those were not mine. The choices boiled down to Nikon D5300 with 18-55mm, Nikon D5200 with 18-55mm and 55-200mm, and Sony Alpha A58 with 18-55mm, 55-200mm, and 50mm prime lens. All of these choices are available at roughly the same price (around 43k INR). Since this is my first DSLR, I wanted to invest in a better camera, as lenses can be...

I just took a bunch of family photos indoors, I had the ISO set as100 and used Aperture settings of f5.6 to f11. Livingroom windows let in lots of light but I used a flash in a few of the shots and tried some bounce flash with the white card deflector. I also used a 50mm f1.8 nikon prime lens and switched to a 55-200mm then switched to the 18-55mm kit lens When I loaded the photo to my windows PC and opened Paintshop pro I thought the photos were a bit grainy. The photo info showed that the...

Hi folks. New to the forum and happy to be here. When I take a shot, the mirror on my D3200 stays in the 'UP' position until I take my finger off the shutter release. It does this in PSA&M modes, however it works fine in Auto or Guide mode. It does this with all the lenses too. The camera is only a few months old. Anyone know of this problem? I appreciate the help. Thanks. --TR

I'm trying to understand why this photo (random example) has been taken with 18mm F6.3, ISO 12800, 1/80 shutter. http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/reviewsamples/photos/1909160/?inAlbum=nikon-d3200-preview-samples D3200 ISO 12800 is garbage as you can see in that photo. 24 MP can't help even when downsized A LOT. So why ISO 12800? Lens can do F3.5 at 18mm, so with that you could use ISO 6400 and even a bit higher shutter speed to freeze motion a bit better. F3.5 too soft and too narrow depth...

Hi Chaps I purchased a D3200 yesterday and upon setting it all up I cannot get the setup menu to highlight the formatting memory card bar. Every memory card I put in and I have exchanged 3 now, states it is damaged.  Is this a camera fault or am I doing something fundamentally wrong. This is my first digital SLR. Thanks
