I have been shooting with my first DSLR (D5000) since 2009. I am not a pro, just use the camera on my business travels and with my Family (mostly my kid nowadays). My lenses are 35mm 1.8G, Sigma 10-20 and Tamron 90mm f2.8. I believe only the Tamron supports full frame. I believe going to D7100 will not add much since D5000 is already a great camera and the next step would be going to full frame. My budget is around 3.5k (after selling a CAM recorder from Canon) for the body and 1 or 2 lenses....

Hi folks. My D5000 is about 5 years old I think. Now when I switch to live-view I get an icon "REC" with a slash through it and I cannot record video when I hit the OK button no matter what settings I have tried to alter. I even pushed the reset switch by the SD card. I have a Lexar Platinum II Class 10 64GB SDXC card. Any ideas, suggestions? All are appreciated! I am an entry level user. Thank you and happy snapping! (Do we still say snapping?! ;-) ) Anita

I have a Nikon D5000 and now I realize what a mistake that was, because AF lenses are so expensive that have only managed to buy a 35mm so far. I should have bought a DSLR with AF motor in the body. Now I want to remedy that.I have a lovely Tokina 100 F2.8 manual focus lens and the 3 Nikkor AF/S lenses (18-55, 55-200, 35). I want a body that can use all 4 lenses, that will also give me light metering and auto focusing with the Tokina lens. I was looking at the Nikon D300, but it only uses CF...

I've been using my D5000 for about 4 years and recently took it to Patagonia. Another person in our group carried a D90 and we happened to take these similar shots. I noticed that my picture looks rather grey in comparison. He did not post-process and didn't use a filter. I used a UV filter (I'm pretty sure. I did have my polarizing filter with me but I don't remember using it much). Here is my shot. Nikon D5000 18-55mm. Aperture priority, 1/500, f/10, -0.7EV, ISO 1 EV under 200. 18mm....

I have a Nikon D5000 and the "Actual" shutter count is "much" larger than the "indicated" shutter count on the pictures I take. I would like to make both the actual and indicted value the same. I call Nikon support and they could not help . . Rather surprising! Can anyone help me? Thanks smagail

I have a Nikon D5000 and I am an ameteur photographer. I really love taking photos, but I have never really learnt how. How do you get only the subject in focus but everything else to be blurry? How do you change it in the settings for the Nikon camera? Thank you, I really appreciate it!

I am buying my first DSLR.  I have a very tight budget--not much more than $500--and I know I have to (or want to) get not only a good body, but a good zoom and prime lens, tripod, and filters.  In order not to compromise on everything besides the body, I have to be willing to get a body that isn't as fancy as the most recent ones.  All used, I can get the Nikon D3000 for $160, D5000 for $200, and the D80 for around $190.  I'm wondering which is the best bang for my buck.  I know this doesn't...
