Hello, I have preordered a Sony a6000 (with the beautiful silver body). This was after determining my wants/needs/desires and narrowing my choices to the a6000, Canon’s 70D and the Nikon D5300. For me, size and budget tipped the balance to the a6000. For the past couple of days I have been reviewing my past photos (w/Canon PowerShot S2-IS). One common item in a large percentage of my favorite photos is a fill flash. What are the options for TTL (not manual or w/manual override) flash for the...

Hi, I'm about to purchase the D5300. Just a few questions about it. Like on smartphone, can it pause during recording, and then resume? (so many scenes are recorded onto a single file?) to save space, without having to deal with multiple files for a shot of just a few sec etc? Also, how long does the battery last for a single charge (for video that is)

Hi all I just got a brand new Nikon D5300 and actually really like that camera for what it is. The other day I was out taking some pictures with my family and came home with a bunch of pictures that where not in focus.  I shoot mostly in AF-S mode and use a focus recompose technique with a 35 mm F1.8 lens. I push the ISO as low as possible without risking getting camera shake. I do like to shoot wide open at F1.8, but only when I know I have a somewhat stationary object like this test...

Hi, This is probably a stupid question, but can I use my Vello TTL flash cord from my old cannon camera on my new Nikon d5300? I don't want to take a chance on breaking anything, but I don't need the metering either as I can set the flash manually. Is this verboten? Thanks.

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...

Hi I am not a Pro but I was wondering whether somebody could answer this query please. If you are a professional Food or Product photographer and you get a contract to take photos for a magazine, newspaper, or a contract with a Product manufacturer, etc, obviously decent lenses are important, but how much does the choice of does the camera body matter? Will companies, advertisers, etc, only accept Photos from photographers who use Full Frame Professional cameras with big megapixels, or will...

Hi I'd like to say I am happy to be part of this community and I am looking forward to your recommendations and advices for my first DSLR or mirrorless camera. I am finally ready to jump into photography as one of my serious hobbies but currently i don't have any bodies or lens with me. I have been taking pictures with simple point and shoot camera and more recently just my iPhone. My budget is up to 1500 ( or 2000 but rather avoid this since I am a student) for both body and lens. The...

I am a beginner. I am trying to figure out what I should buy. Costco has a great deal on the Nikon D3300 bundle with two lenses (18-55mm and 55-200mm), memory card, bag, etc. But, for the same price I could get a D5300 but with only the standard 18-55mm lens. I like taking landscape photos, and I want to create HDR photos. I know the D5300 has auto-braketing, which is very nice. Can I braket with the D3300? How is that done? Or is that not possible. I also don't know if having the...
