In a very unfortunate situation, the case holding my D5000 was dropped about a foot or two.  Of course, when checking out the camera, it was broken. The symptoms: The camera powers up fine, takes pictures fine.  The only problem is that the LCD screen shows nothing, just all black pixels.  The LCD even gets power (it's backlit).  Just no display.  I've had many people ask, and no, the shutter is not locked up. I tried opening up the LCD unit, following an instructables guide, and didn't see...

I came to a situation that I needed to preset the white balance using a part of a white wall in the strange light scene. The mixed light was far ahead and above so I could not use a piece of grey or white paper in front of the D7000. The wall was not big enough to fill the viewfinder (I use primes). So the D7000 was unable to measure the white balance successfully and flashed 'no good'. I retried in vain. Before the D7000 I used to use another camera which used only the centre focus point...

I just picked up a Nikon D5000 that was advertised as in good working condition.  I took a few test photos, and it appeared to work fine.  I got it home and took a few dozen photos and put them on the computer, and to my horror they are _not_ fine.  I've reset the camera to factory defaults, tried a few other lenses, and everything is just wrong.  The noise is at a level that I've never seen before.  Has anyone ever seen anything like this?

I'm a new owner of my first DSLR, a lightly used Nikon D5000 with 18-55mm VR kit lens. I've owned Nikon film camera's for nearly 40 years but got out of the hobby with the end of Kodachrome film. Anyway my question, is there something wrong with my D5000 if I always need to edit to "brighten" the photos. I use Picasa 3 and almost always add "fill light" and then "auto contrast". I just got back from an Alaska trip and 2000+ photos, almost all of which needed the same enhancement. They just...

I need advice on how to connect a Nikon D5000 camera to an Olympus IX70 Inverted Microscope. The Nikon has a standard F mount, of course, and the microscope has a 1/4"-20 mount.  Any suggestions for which adaptor would work, etc?  Help! Much thanks in advance.

Ello. First post, *yew*. Recently, I've been thinking about upgrading from my Nikon D5000 to well, something else. I was thinking about a D7100, but I'm not too sure. I only have two lenses (I sold some of my others) so I'm even open to switching to Canon........... however, I'm asking this in the Nikon section for a reason. I mostly take portraits and self-portraits. I'm just using the lens that it came with (18-55mm I believe) and a Nikkor 35mm 1.8 lens. Some basic criteria: - budget of...

I need a better lens to take action shots for my son's high school football games and all games are at night and the field lighting is bad. My Nikon AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens is great for daytime sports photography but it does very poorly for action shots with low lighting. I am a novice and I admit that I mostly use the sports mode and get great results with daylight action shots. I know I will have to step up my game and learn how to use the manual settings for night time...

I've got a couple of items on order. Samsung EX2F and a 52mm extension barrel to fit 52mm filters and lenses in front of the fixed lens on the camera. A knurled ring is removed from the base of the lens and the barrel is screwed in place. It permits the use of 52mm threaded filters and lenses. I am ready to order this kit this...
