I am new to DSLR's. I have seen pictures taken by Nikon D5100. I am impressed with those samples. I have decided to upgrade from my compact (Canon SX5IS) machine.My preferences are Portrait, Landscape/Scenary/Travelling, Indoor, Macro. My budget is around 1k $ including lens. I can stretch budget if necessary.After reviews I am equally impressed with Sony NEX 5n because of its compact and IQ. Now I am confused, whether to take Nikon 5100 or Nex 5N. Please suggest Pros and cons of Nex 5N when...

After so many hours trying to decide, I'm thinking my first DSLR will be the Nikon D5100.  Now, do I get the body only and buy lenses separately, or should I just start with the kit lenses?

I have a D5100, and three SB700's and an SB910.I'm trying to have one SB700 on camera as commander, and the rest of the flash as remote. On camera flash switch is set to master, while the rest is switched to remote. All other switches set to TTL and standard flash spread.One questionable SB700, it doesn't seem to be triggering the remote flashes. If I put a different SB700, it would trigger the rest of the remotes.I've sent this SB700 to Nikon El Segundo twice, only to be sent back with a...

I am using Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm lens to install a macro extension tube to shoot on macro photo. After install the extension tube bços the lens had been separate from the body and connection had been disconnected . The viewfinder seen to be dark and photo taken all dark as well. How can I take a good photo with this extension tube ? The lens itself got no adjustment on both Aperture and shutter speed .

I just bought a D5100 with the 18-55mm kit lens as a second camera.  I spent some time taking photos at the beach today, but soon discovered how much I missed having real telephoto capabilities (I also have a Panasonic FZ200 that comes with a built-in 25-600mm super zoom Leika lens).  I'm thinking I would like to add a 200-300mm/f4-f5 capable lens to the D5100 - but I have pretty much broken my piggy bank on these two camera purchases.  I could probably squeeze out maybe another $500-600 for...

Thanks for indulging a question that's a bit more elementary than many of those posed here:I have three lenses (50mm f2 Nikon, 35mm f2.8 and 135mm f2.8 third-party) from a 1970-era Nikkormat. They're manual everything: they sent f-stop information to the body by engaging a pin that moved when the aperture lens on the ring was rotated, but had no other connection to what went on behind them (other than bending light rays and sending them back there). They worked fine through the 1990s and have...

Hi,I just bought a Nikon D5100.  I have found that the command structure as it appears in the LCD, not the menus generally, but things like setting metering type (spot, matrix, center) and scene modes show a sample photo of what is needed or will happen.  They are generally mediocre or worse (look at the one for matrix metering of a lady sitting with a silly grin behind a house, as an example) and not something that I want to see in the midst of the creative process.  Is there any way to shut...

Hi All,I am looking for a DSLR for entry/intermediate level user. I know some basics in photography like aperture setting etc but I want to learn more and practice them. Some of my friends have Nikon D90 and I love the image quality especially in low light. But as it is 4 years old, I am not sure if it is a good idea to buy that (in USA). So I am thinking of Nikon D5100, Nikon D7000, Canon T3i and Canon T2i. I would appreciate your ideas to help me decide.Thanks!
