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?

Hi, I could use some comment and advice. I use a Nikon D5100 & D5500 (DX) camera, and a Nikon 16-85mm lens. Looking for an even wider-angle lens for these DX cameras. There are at least two very close-matched choices by the same brand: Tokina ATX 11-20mm f2.8 Pro DX, and Tokina ATX 11-16mm Pro DX. Price, and the slight difference in zoom aside, which one would be "best" (sharp edge to edge, quality at wide-open aperture, min. chromatic aberration, and especially low lens flare) of the two?...

I've recently returned to my photography, and am really enjoying it. Three of my lenses are giving me good results, and I'm learning a bit from each of them. However, my WA lens is not keeping up: It seems that this lens, (or the D5100) cannot properly autofocus. It's the AF-S Nikkor 12-24 f/4 G ED DX. Here is an example, taken in Aperture priority with dynamic mode AF: I used the center AF point, on the nutcrackers. Nothing in the picture is sharp. With manual focus I can get sharp results...

Hello, planning a trip to Death Valley in the next couple of weeks, weather (clear skies, no wind) permitting. Would appreciate advice on camera settings - ballpark - to get me started. ISO, shutter, aperture. (And a particular question: The "long exposure noise reduction": On or Off?) Camera: Nikon D5500 and/or D5100. (APS-C size). Lens: Nikon 16-85mm f3.5 (probably set at 20mm?? for best quality?) Lens: Nikon 50mm f1.4 No earth-rotation-tracking mechanism. Only tripod & remote shutter. I...

Need a tripod versatile enough to have with me in my car, attached to my camera bag - yet, sturdy enough for all kinds of photography...as I do product and food photography for clients, and love taking portraits, wildlife and landscape pictures for fun. Does anyone have any experiences with either of these two tripods? Feisol has lots of information about them and reviews out there, and Sirui has some, but from what I can tell - both are good tripods without spending $600+. Also, I like how...

I recently fixed a shutter curtain problem with my wifes D5100 camera. The shutter test now works fine. She had dropped it in the curtain arm came of its post.

I put it all back together and shutter test now works fine, you can see thar the curtains are now open.  The problemI have now is when I put a lense on the camera is says...
