Greetings of the season to All! I am following a lot of literature on DPR forums ever since I bought my D5200 last year. In fact, expert reviews in DPR have helped to buy this DSLR. But, I am new to Macro photography. I wanted to know what is the difference between extreme closeups and Macro Photography? Is it just the focal length that defines? May I know what exactly qualifies for a real macro? Regards, Naresh

Hello everyone, Before I am going to ask my question, I'm going to introduce myself. I'm Manu Claessens, 16 years old (yep, only 16 yet ;-) ), and since a few years, I'm really passionately taking portrets, sea-shots and other stuff, like time-lapses and sometimes even a hyper-lapse. For that purpose, I bought the Nikon D5200 kit (including the AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm). Afterwards, I bought the Nikkor 50mm 1.8, for pictures that are taken in low light conditions. Also in my accessories pack: a...

Hello, I'm in search of a new camera and I've been reading reviews, researching the last couple of weeks. I would like some advice since I know there are people on here who have way more experience and knowledge about photography than I do. The choice is daunting to say the least. There are so many models, types etc not to mention all the different lenses. Some background: I'm relatively new to photography. First DSLR I bought was back in 2011 Nikon D40 with 18-200mm (it was stolen in...

Well I do a lot of rough hiking and ended up losing the eyecup on my V2. Emailed Nikon and they will not sell me one. I have to send it in so they can fix it by sliding on what they won't sell me. Guessing a couple of hundred bucks for a 5 dollar item. Tried the eye cup from a d5200 and that one is a little small. Perhaps some larger eyecup may work. At this point I am a little frustrated with Nikon. Any one have any suggestions?

Hello, I like fisheye lens effects but am reluctant to get a fisheye for a DX series camera, because its desired effect is reduced by the 1.5x factor. Could anyone please post examples of fisheye (8mm?) lenses on the DX cameras, or point to sites that display them? Thank you --RUcrAZ

Hello, I have a pretty basic question - I'm very new to Lightroom, and my initial plan is to download all pictures (RAW + JPEG from my NIkon D5200) on to an external HD, and then review and import photos that I want to keep / edit / share in to my Lightroom catalog.   Since I have a 2 TB external HD, I would prefer to keep all my initial photos there, but not fill up my Macbook internal HD.   Does that process make sense?   Would I just drag my memory card on to the external HD on my desktop?...

Hello I just got a new camera and used lens. And now I have no idea what kind of tele-converter to get for them...... Someone please help me. I honestly have no idea where to go from here! This is my first SLR camera although I've been interested in Photography since I got my first minnie mouse camera when I was 5! I'm not looking to become a pro just an military wife getting ready to go on some adventures while we live in Europe. Thank you for your time and help!!

With my D50, where ever I needed fill flash in P mode, all I had to do is deploy by on-board flash. Shooting with my D5200 at a nighttime football game, I needed some fill flash when shooting portrait type of snapshots of people. Deploying my flash for fill flash did not fire 100% of the time especially when the background was well lit leaving my subjects faces in the dark. So my question is with the 5200, does deploying the flash not provide fill flash 100% of the time?

I'm sure I am just missing something but need your help. On my D5000, I could see the focus points in the viewfinder and move the active point with the ring control. I cannot get the right setting to see the focus points in the viewfinder on my D5200. Help? I see it on the display screen, but want it in the viewfinder. Thanks for any help.
