I am about to pull the trigger on purchasing an Olympus OMD-EM10, moving from a Nikon D90 and am curious as to the experience of others who have made a similar transition. I am an advanced amateur, initially moving from a P&S to Nikon D40x then to the D90. While I have been very pleased with the D90, I have never been completely happy with the low light performance despite having a few prime lenses and also find that I take it with me less often due to weight and bulk. Hence, the thought of...
I now own a D40X, D5100 and a D600. When first using all three cameras (large/fine setting), the photos were consistently on the dark side. To get a proper exposure using the cameras metering, I have had to change the exposure compensation on all three cameras. With the D40X I had to change to +0.3. With the D5100 I had to change to +0.7. Finally with the D600 I had to change to +1.0. Has anyone had the same experience with the D600 or other Nikon DSLR's? Is this common with Nikon DSLR's?
Hi. The local camera store was not particularly useful in helping me choose a camera. I am wondering is the practical benefit of a Nikon D5200 over a D3200? I'm coming from a Nikon D40X. I have an 18-200mm lens and an SB-900 speedlight already so I'd like to stay with Nikon, and add a 50mm prime. I shoot lots of full body portrait indoors, outdoor water sports, wild life, and scenery. It seems like the major difference is auto focus and video. What is the practical difference? Will I really...
I am thinking about upgrading from a D40X to a D7100.I saw advertized prices for two D7100 bodies, one labeled as a USA body, and the other without the USA label (so I assume that was a non-USA body). My question is: Is there a difference in the bodies of USA and non-USA D7100? Thanks,
I use a camera professionally every day for my business, however I'm not a photographer. I photograph details on cars during inspections. I need a lens that is wide and the most challenging aspect I deal with is lighting. The cars are always stationary, and in close range. Lighting is the variable, outdoors, indoors, etc. I have been using a D40x DSLR for the past years and would like a lighter, smaller package that is capable. I feel that a 7800 should be a much better camera just because of...
I have had my D40X for about 5 years, right about when it came out. While it has been a great camera I've started noticing some instances where my Nikon S9100 is out performing it. Mostrecently was the 4th of July when I couldn't get the camera to focus quick enough for the fireworks. I switched to the 9100 & I was in business. Keep in mind I'm very much a novice with SLR cameras so it could be user error. I've looked at both the 5200 & 3200 and I've used my dad's 7000 and I'm somewhat...
