Hi, I am looking at making the jump to DSLR from standard digital camera. I will be travelling to South Africa which is a driver for the purchase, but also want to try a bit of general amateur photography. I can get a pretty good price on a Nikon d5200 body, but am having trouble deciding on lenses. Possible choices: - standard 2 kit lens package - 18-55 and 55-200 AFS VR - go for a 55-300 instead of the above (not package so at an extra $200). - a Sigma 18-250 F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM...

Hi, I have a Nikon D5200. I'll get straight to the problem; Sometime, but not always my camera will take a photo but only captures a black image; it's blank. This problem occurs when taking photos through the viewfinder in Manual, Program, No flash etc. If i take the same photo through live view with the same settings it will take the photo. Is my camera faulty? I previously had and in fact still have a canon 450D and i have never come across this problem unless i was under exposing the...

I've read countless posts asking the same question ("can you recommend a camera for a beginner") with different answers and I've done quite a bit of reading up on the different cameras I've discovered through online reviews as well as threads in these forums. I've reached the point where all of the reviews are starting to blur a bit. Here's a little bit of background. I'm an amateur photographer who enjoys taking pictures. I have no illusions of ever becoming a professional but I do enjoy...

I understand when there was the D2x and the D300 why the differentiation between "pro" and "non-pro" DX cameras. But since 2010 there have been cameras like the D5200 and D7000 that were far better cameras than these "pro" DX cameras in almost every respect. I had the D2x, D3, D300 and all their predecessors, and now have the D800e and the D7100 cameras. The IQ from the D7100 surpasses all of these DX cameras by a wide margin. It produces images at ISO 3200 that compare well to those from...

Good afternoon gang, Im new here and am seeking out help after weeks of lost research. Im possibly coming over to Nikon from Canon after a hiatus in the hobby.

Hi all, I'm looking for some advice from all you experts out there on whether I should upgrade from my trusty D5200 to a D610 or stay with what I have until the next version of whatever the entry level FX camera will be. I'm a "turning pro" photographer, doing it in my spare time.  I moved from a Sony NEX-6 to a D5200 a year ago.  The swap was a bit painful for a couple of months but I'm now going to manual pretty much all the time. I have 3 main lenses I use A Nikon 50mm 1.8G DX for...
