Recently, I am struggling in making a choice between D5300/D5500 and D7200. By using the tool provided by DPREVIEW (in raw format) http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen I found that Nikon D5300/5500 fails to reproduce the red color faithfully. The red color are obviously yellow-prone. In contrast, Nikon D7X00 and even Nikon D3X00 do not have this issue. Can anyone tell me the reason?
I listed my D3 and D3x on Craigslist. I received at least 2 inquiries that are, no doubt in my mind, scams. They all wanted to pay a higher price to ship the camera. They both wanted my PayPal account so to deposit money there. How do they get money into PayPal to make me believe that they have fully paid? Do they just claim item not received and get their money back later?
IIRC Nikon claimed that the current generation cameras can AF with lenses which can't open wider than f/8, which is a nice plus for TC use with long telephotos. This implies that the older generation cameras would only AF up to f/5.6. I have some interest in the Sigma 150-600, and since I still use some older cameras and Sigma is only f/6.3 at the long end, the issue of AF is a big one for this lens. In the meantime, I'm coming across a review of this...
Just acquired an ex+ copy of the d3x. I hope it's a good one. I'd like to have a cf card in hand when I arrives. One review claimed the reviewer used a Lexar 300 card but didn't mention what capacity. According to the Nikon manual this camera will only use an 8 gig card. Has anyone used a bigger or faster card. Thanks for any input. Bearsmom
Sorry if this has been asked before. I'm asking for my nephew, who's looking to upgrade from a point & shoot. (Full disclosure: I shoot Pentax, K3 to be exact, but I do like Nikon stuff.) He wants to do wildlife/birding with it; he's a marine biology major at school Galveston. I suggested a third-party lens, e.g., the Sigma 150-500 or the Tamron 150-600, for the long stuff. For the body, I suggested a more entry-level camera, e.g., the D5500, D5300, or even D5200. (I guess the D5xxx series...
I know next to nothing about digital imaging, so please forgive me if this is common knowledge among digital shooters. I only need 6 megapixels for everything I do, however I also require high-ISO sensitivity. Say that I buy a D3X, or any 24 megapixel camera for that matter. Since the D3X can set its JPG resolution to 6 megapixels, do I : Obtain increased dynamic range? If so, by how many stops? Obtain increased high-ISO noise performance? If so, by how many stops? Would a 6 megapixel image...

Hi, I am looking to get an upgrade over my current Nokia Lumia 920's camera. I am planning to do some better and more serious photography in the near future in the fields of glamour/boudoir and landscape photography (I want to namely shoot pictures of women, both nude and non-nude, and buildings) and I want a DSLR/MILC that has the following, to the best of my ability: -Lightweight and concealable -Has an APS-C sensor (NO MFTs unless it's absolutely necessary, and even then.....) -Solid build...
Has anyone experienced a problem using their D3X in the "Trap Focus" mode, such that, the camera will only take a single "trap focused" shot, and then not repeat; or such that when set to "Continuous Shutter" in "Trap Focus" mode, it continues to take successive shots after the object has left the focal plane?Would appreciate any feedback from D3X users. Thanks.
