I have a Nikon D5100 and was wondering if there is a way to take a picture from a video. I have a Sony video camera that when i watch back the video i can pause it where ever i want and zoom in or out and then take a picture of that image.  Can the same be done with the D5100 as i can seem to find how to do it.

Hi. I wonder if someone can kindly give me some advice. I am looking set up a budget studio in my home so that I can use it for shooting portraits (families/kids etc). It won’t be a professional set up by any means, but I will be trying to produce as close to pro results as I can. I am wondering which camera I should get so that I can achieve the best results on a tight budget. Before this weekend I thought I would be getting the Nikon D5100 for around £420 with the kit lens (or I might wait...

Hi,I tried to look for an answer to this but couldn't find anything, sorry if this has been covered already.I am really tempted to get a 135mm f3.5 or 2.8 or even 200mm f4 Ai lens for my D5100, Ken Rockwell's charts does suggest that they'd fit but I am worried about the prongs, as the gap between my kit lens and flash is pretty less. I just wish to know if anyone here has tried them, and if I should go with it.I am aware  of manual focus and metering issues, I just am worried if it'd...

Hello So - defenitely want to get a prime 35mm for the Nikon I plan to buy.  Question: I could buy a D5100 body and prime for the same price and a D3100 with a 18-55 kit lens and prime.  Should I ditch the D3100 with kit lens and just go for the D5100 and prime?  Or would you say its good to get a kits lens too?  Is it even worth stretching to the D5100 withthe 18-105 kit lens and prime?  This will be an extra £150 so the kit lens really needs to be worth having. Any thoughts? thanks

Hello Have decided really between these two cameras for my first Digital SLR.  The D5100 has slightly better reviews so thinking of getting that but it does not have the guide system.  As a beginner do you think it will really is that useful in helping me to understand different settings?  I have some basic knowledge but missing anything robust! Also, while I have you: i want to buy a prime lens and am looking at the Nikon AF-S 35mm f1.8 G DX Lens or Nikon 28mm f2.8 AF D.  The former is...
