About a year ago I received some excellent advice on this forum. I asked about shooting in some lower light conditions (high school football field) for marching band photos. I asked which camera should replace my D5100, and received advice to get a faster higher image quality lens, not a new camera body. I (somewhat reluctantly) took the advice and purchased a used Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR which has been fantastic and made all the difference in the world - you all were right,...

I sometimes had problems with my Nikon d5100 freezing, so I bought the d5300.  I recently had photos printed from memory cards from both cameras and all of the photos taken with the Nikon d5100 are much better than the ones with the d5300.  Has anyone else had this experience with these cameras?  All photos were taken on auto.  Can anyone recommend another camera to try?  Thank you in advance for any input.  This is really disappointing.

Hi, I have a Nikon D5100. It recently stopped working- the buttons will not respond and it won't read memory cards- for no apparent reason. No water damage, no impact damage, no weather damage... Nikon can't give me an estimate for how much it will be to repair until I send it to them, which means paying for shipping plus insurance, and then return shipping if I decide not to go through with the repair.Has anybody had a similar issue? I'm just wondering how much your repair ended up being. I...

# Plan for Photo database organization and workflow Hi, Right now I have all my photos from the recent years in a Apple Photos Library. This works quite good and I like that everything is is one place. Furthermore, I would like to have a fraction or even my entire database in the cloud and thus it would be easy just to purchase a iCloud data plan. However, I don’t like the fact that all my Photos are stored within the Apple Photos Library app. I’d rather have a solid structure of photos...

I got my first camera in July of last year. It is the Nikon d5100 with the AF-S NIKKOR 18-55 mm 1:35-5.6G lense. The type of lense I am looking for is one that has great bokeh effect and a great blurred background effect. The type of photography I do is portrait mainly. I take blog posts of my outfits and hairstyles, and would like something that would fit for that. My price range is $100-$300. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I currently have a D5100 and would consider upgrading to the D7xxx or other series. I bought the D5100 because of the fully articulating LCD. I often take pictures of wildflowers near the ground and many are in vertical (portrait) mode. I have often wondered how you use the tilting only LCD's in vertical mode. It seems Nikon only uses the articulating LCD on the D5xxx series and wonder how vertical mode is handled on tilting only LCD's. I was using a D80 and the fixed LCD caused me to get...

I have a Nikon D5100 and a Nikon 18-200 VR II lens.  Bought probably 8 years ago.  I really used to love this setup, but I've kinda come to hate it because of the problems it has.  Just to start, lets make clear that I'm a beginner basically - good kit but no expert at using it or troubleshooting, so be gentle please. Basically, the autofocus seems to be really slow.  I've found that it doesn't autofocus at all if I don't twist the lens focus ring to the right (direction of travel at the top)...

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...

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??
