Hi. I know the basics of photography and shoot in manual mode unless just taking snapshots or fast street scenes etc. Used to use a Pentax K-1000 and and Olympus OM-10 35mm film camera, also used to have a nice Lumix which was good for 'everything in focus' no creative dof usage. This is my first DSLR and U have pretty much come to grips with it in P, A and M mode. The one thing I'm not sure on is metering and AF area. I went with Ken Rockwell's recommendations and chose matrix metering and...

Hello All, First of all, I would like to make it clear that my intention is not to create a "Flame Bait" thread. I am genuinely interested in getting some technical/real world answers. Sorry for the long post. I currently own Canon xsi with a kit lens and have been pretty happy with it until it got wet during one of my travels. So I was looking to buy a new camera (or rather upgrade). Since I am not yet invested in any "system", I was considering ALL the brands. Pentax and Sony mirror-less...

Hello! I've recently been looking into getting my first digital SLR camera. I've had the Canon Power shot S5 IS for years, and while it's a great little camera, I am looking to upgrade to a mid-range dslr. I would like a camera that I can grow into and use for multiple occasions, mostly wildlife photography, scenic and portraits. I will probably be using this camera for the next 2-5 years. I've been doing a lot of reading and have been looking more closely at the following: Canon T5i Nikon...

I bought recently a D5300, and a used Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 EX DC HSM. Only after I noticed the compatibility issue, and it was too late. So now I'm trying to get a lens firmware upgrade at the portuguese Sigma distributor. But I'm a bit lost on this. So I ask if anyone knows if this lens can be "fixed" in order to work with this camera? Thanks in advance for advise. Cheers..............

I have a D5300 with the 18-55 kit lens and a 50mm 1.8G lens. I noticed yesterday that when I use the 50mm lens, the camera tends to overexpose by 2/3EV so I need to dial in -2/3 compensation.I have used the lens and camera for a month now and it seems that the problem just started. I tried to use the 18-55 kit lens. I set it to 50mm focal length and 5.6 aperture in aperture priority mode. I took a shot and everything is fine. I then tried the live view mode and it gave me the same metering...

Hi all, i am new to nikon world, so i need your advice. Until recently i only used sony mirrorless systems (nex-5n and a7) I am really happy with them, IQ is excellent, however second hand market of sony is not good in my country (turkey) as it is in canon or nikon. You can't sell easily or find a second hand product of sony mirrorless system.  Second, i like shooting landscape most and i think the wight may not be a big issue for me. So, i want to try apsc dslr's, and what i want to try is...

I've got the original Nikkor 18-200 AF-S DX 3.5-5.6 G VR that I've used for several years with my D50.  I picked up a bundle D5300 kit that came with the 18-55 AF-S DX 3.5-5.6 VRII and the 55-200 AF-S DX f-5.6 G IF-ED VR lenses.  According to the DXOMark tests with the D5300, these lenses should be about the same as far as detail/sharpness.  However, in tests on a tripod and taking identical shots on the D5300, the new lenses produce noticeably, noticeably sharper images with more detail than...
