Thinking of getting a lens hood for A6000. Anyone currently using the below hoods. The metal ring hood look very shallow not sure how effective it would be. Any suggestion? --chiue -Nikon D5000 / Sony A6000Kodak Z990 P880 DX7590 Z915 DX6440 V803 M420 C190 C875 ZX3

Hi to all, I sold my Nikon D5000 and want to buy mirrorless. I like OM-D specifications and design, so i borrowed M10 with 12-50 lens from my friend. Because of bad weather i took few shots indoor with 2 permanent lights with umbrellas. I shot to raw and jpeg, but when i saw the pictures and try to make some retouches i was horrified with the amount fo noise on the picture at ISO 500 and 1600. Is it normal? Thak you guys. martin ISO 500, only cropped image

So I've been recently investigating the possibility of upgrading the D5000 to a newer camera.  Although the D5000 still works fine, I'd like higher resolution for more cropping/enlarging flexibility, some amount of weather resistance, and more bracketing options for HDR processing. I am definitely not interested in the expense or weight of an FX camera. As much as I like and use the D5000's flip screen, I'm considering moving up an entire series to the D7100. Seem reasonable?  With the new...

Hi all. I am brand new to photography and have way too much of a camera for my needs. But, a neighbor was upgrading to a pro rig and gave us a couldn't say no deal. So, now I have a D5000 that i'm underutilizing. I will be learning how not to treat it as a simple point and shoot in the upcoming months, but for now I have a problem that I'm hoping is a simple fix (but am assuming isn't). We went out and took some shots, looking through the viewfinder eyepiece, but when we got home, all of the...

The quick question to the point is:Why when I pair lens that worked perfectly with my old D5000, they don't work as efficient with the D80? Is it that the D80 requires Nikon branded lens ?The D80 works flawlessly with my Nikon Nifty 50 mm, good sharpness and best of all, good color retention, natural and pleasing.But when I pair my D80 with the sigma 17-70 lens, sigma 70-300 APO Macro lens and the 35mm Tokina macro lens, the D80 seems not to like any of those lens. But all these lens worked...

1) The D5000 is only (AF wise) compatible with AF-S and AF-I lenses, are there still plenty of these lenses? Would it be a disadvantage? 2. I have used a friends D90 and D3000 with a Sigma lens with an aperture ring, but the aperture could only be changed using the body, otherwise it wouldn't change. Is this just this lens, would it be true of other Sigma's. Would it be true of Nikon lenses with aperture rings?

I own a Nikon D7200 with a Nikon 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 VR and Nikon 35 mm f/1.8 lens. The 18-105 mm is from my old D5000 camera. After I bought the 35 mm prime lens it has been my primary lens. I almost never use the zoom lens except from situations where I really needs to zoom (> 70 mm). The 35 mm is sharper and has a much better aperture. Therefore I tend to mount this prims lens instead of my old 18-105 mm lens for allround situations. Family events (both in- and outdoor), kids, people...
