Does anyone know how to find a screen protector for the LCD, on which there is a PHI-GRID printed???? I can't think of any other way to have a usable GRID on the live view. Thanks to a user here that has told us how to use the AUTOFOCUS DOTS in the viewfinder and THINK of them to form the standard "Rule of Thirds" grid. Alternately, can somebody tell how to use the 16 square GRID in anything useful apart from aligning lines with horizons??

This is the equipment I currently own. 1) old D40X and 2) slightly less old D5100. My current lenses are 1) Nikon 18-55 mm kit lens, 2) Nikon 55-200 mm telephoto, and 3) Tokina 12-28 f/4 super wide. I'm not an accomplished photographer. I mostly take photos of events I'm at, or places I'm visiting while on vacation, or RV trips. I want good quality pictures for viewing when I get home and to show family and friends. I never expect to sell any nor to enter any photo contests. All that said, I...

I will be shooting a party using 10ft x8ft canvas backdrop with a western print on it. it will be shot outside peak daylight. I have a d5100 also 35mm1.8, 18-55 and 70-200mm lens. my question is which lens (or I can rent) should I use to keep the subjects sharp and also the backdrop sharp and as much of it in the picture not being so far away from subject

Hello, Here is a question on how the D5100 works, when using an old, manual lens, and set on "M": I wonder if that's the best this combo can do, or I'm doing something wrong?? Using the Menu, setting the "Auto ISO sensitivity control" to "ON," and the "Maximum Sensitivity" to 400 (or other ISO) and the "Minimum shutter speed" to 1/160 (or other value). The display on the menu below the other info then reads: " Value selected for max sensitivity will be used." I interpret this as the cam (that...

I'm looking to replace my D40 and get the D5100 as a backup to my D7100 and a 2nd body. Does it have any kind of weather resistance? Could I shoot in a light rain with it? I want to shoot in bad weather but don't want to get the D7100 wet. --Bill

Will the new Tamron's autofocus work normally with Nikon D5100, and D5500, which do NOT have a body-screw focus system? --RUcrAZhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7scQbWkeNaY

Hello, Here is a question: I just bought and tried a Tokina wideangle 11-20mm f2.8 for Nikon DX. Tested it with a Nikon D5100 and D5500 with similar results: In "autofocus" the lens "pegs" beyond infinity, at anything over 30 feet distant.  Apparently does not focus closer than about 15 feet, even when the object (largely filing the screen) may be not more than 3-4 feet away - although the cam can and does focus manually to about 1 foot. I deliberately tested this at-length today, at all zoom...

Hi All, i have had a Nikon D5100 for 3 years now. it came with a kit lens - 18-55mm and 55-200mm.  after two years i purchased the 35mm 1.8G - which i use most of the time now.  i am really looking for a wider lens now with the same quality of the 35mm, i dont really use the 55-200mm and use the 18-55mm for landscape photos but i cant seem to get the best quality out of the lens. can anyone recommend a lens or advise?
