Hi there ! I'm new to 500px and to photography in general. I have always been very fond of photography and loved taking pictures but never taken it seriously or invested much time or money into it as a hobby. However, the birth of my son has led me to want to capture every moment and has sparked a passion to learn. I've owned a Nikon D40x for about 7+ years. I only have a standard kit lens and have an older model HP laptop. I'm planning on upgrading both to build up my skills. I can really...
I bought D5500 with the 18-140mm kit lens and thought it was awesome in comparison to my old D40x. Then I put 35mm prime on it and was completely in love, never wanting to switch back. That is until I saw some birds on the deck and wanted a closeup which made me switch to the zoom lens. Now I can't believe how soft and unfocused the photos look with the kit lens. Is it something I'm doing wrong with the kit lens? Is the prime just that much better? Or is there something wrong with my kit lens...

Hi all. I'm a newbie in the market for a camera and was looking for some advice. I'm looking at these two particular models. I plan to learn how to shoot in manual mode and will be using it mostly be for my kids indoor sports/activities, going to parks, family activities, etc. I plan on getting an 18-135/18-140 lens to start and will likely add a telephoto after a little bit. Video quality is a bonus for sports games and school recitals but not a must. Currently, my kids lives are being...
I have D40X camera. This is the first time I am trying self timer. I set the self timer at 20 seconds and followed the instruction on the manual. The self timers works when I have the setting on auto. The timer does not work on P or A setting. these are the two settings I have tried. I should be able to use the timer on any setting. Am I not correct. An early response will be highly appreciated. I am leaving for Beach tomorror. Hopefully I will have a response prior to leaving for the...
We are setting up a website (furniture business. We've picked the template, have everything ready to go, except the photos. The template requires photos be in a 960 x 416 size. How do I take a picture (we have a nice Nikon D40X), that once edited, will not look like Stretch Armstrong? I have a photo of a china cabinet that is 78" tall. When I put it in this size, it looks like it is 2' tall and 78" wide. And, how do I edit the photos I have (20+years worth of work) to fit this size...
I've been doing some recreational bird photography with the first-generation 55-200 (no VR), and while it's adequate for snapping pictures of birds at feeders, I'd like something with a bit more range. VR/VC and faster AF would be appreciated as well. I don't expect my pictures to be National Geographic quality, but there are some cool birds in my area (notably Ospreys, Kingfishers, and Eastern Bluebirds) that I'd like to document. It's just for fun. My budget is $500 or so. Thanks for the help!
