As a hobbyist photographer my normal D5200 suits me just fine for 90% of what I like to shoot. I've had a couple recent opportunities to shoot some concerts and have realized that my D5200, while it does a passable job in low light (twilight etc.), it's sensor just isn't up to the task of holding the level of detail I'm looking for in the dynamic and often poor lighting conditions present at indoor concerts. My question if I'm going to rent a FX camera for a weekend of concerts, which out of...

Hi everyone, I am looking at buying a D7100 or D5200 in the near future but am trying to decide on what lenses to get with the new camera. I am switching over from having a Canon 350D with a couple of Sigma lenses so am starting with Nikon from scratch. I like to shoot Architecture, some wildlife/nature and eventually to get in to macro. I have pretty much decided on getting the 35mm f.1.8G DX but struggling to decide if I need a zoom in the same range e.g the 18-55mm kit lens or the 16-85mm...

Hi Just to be sure: Is this right reverse ring to mount D5200 kit lens to D5200?http://www.ebay.com/itm/52mm-Macro-Reverse-Adapter-Ring-for-NIKON-D7000-D5200-D5100-D3100-Mount-/261253415762?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cd3eac352And is there anything specific I should know about reversering macro photography other than  that it's fully manual?

Hello- I know there have been several similar posts regarding this same question so pardon me if this is a repeat... I am shopping for my first DSLR. I am tired of using a P&S and ready to start learning more about photography. I am having a tough time deciding on the D3200, D3300, D5200, or D5300. I want something I won't get "bored with" in the next few years but at the same time I don't want a camera too advanced for a beginner. I don't expect to get great shots right out of the box but I...

I bought a used Tamron 18-270mm and have a problem with it focusing on my Nikon D5300. I don't thinks it's a PZD lens, but not sure When zoomed past about 150mm it hunts for 10 seconds or so before it can lock the focus.This happens even outdoors in both bright light and in shade. In the same conditions, with the exact same focus point, my nikkor 55-300 takes less than a second to focus. This happens with VC both on and off. I also tried it on a friends D5200 - same problemThen tried it on...

So I am looking to purchase a new camera.  I have ben out of the market for a long time that will be come evident later in this post. Two simple requirements: general use - stills, family shots, scrapbook type stuff Second I need to be able to take pictures of my daughter playing golf. I tried a friend's Nikon 5200 with a 200mm lens and that was not sufficient from the distances that I was shooting and I could not get any closer.  So I am looking for a 300, 400 or possibly a 500mm lens.  I am...

Hi I liked this gallery: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Panasonic_Leica_DG_Nocticron_42-5mm_f1-2_H-NS043E/sample_images.shtml And I was wondering if I could get something like that with D5200 too? all I found was  50 mm manual focus f1.2 lens.  http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/50mm-f12.htm If you scroll down, you can clearly see that image qualit is quite poor. So I was wondering that if I'd pick some f1.4 lens, will then DOF be noticable larger and boketh noticably uglier or would f1.4...

I have just received my Nikon D5200 and I am setting it up inside of a cabinet system I have built for a custom mobile photo booth.  How do you get the camera to automatically focus on it's own when a customer comes into the booth and wants to do a few photos?  The photo booth will not have anyone manning photo booth and wanted the camera to do the work of focusing while locked up in the cabinet.  Thank You, Brian

I just got a Nikon D5200 not long time ago. Is it necessary to have an UV filter? The sales person said UV will cause damage to my camera's sensor if it's not protected by UV filter. How true is that? If I have to buy an UV filter, which type of UV filter is recommended?
