Hello,My daughter wants, as a gift for her birthday, an entry-level DSLR camera. She had one point and shoot camera until now.She's very decided for a Nikon D3100 (one of her friends has one so... that's the story).However, since I checked a little the various digital photography forums and reviews, I thought to buy something a little bit better.Now, I read a lot about these 2 cameras: 550D and D5100. As far as I seen they are very close in terms of image quality, ease of use, lenses, etc.I...

Looking for a recommendation for the right speedlight based on the following conditions:1) I currently have a D5100 but expect to be upgrading to an FX camera or maybe some future next generation D7000 level camera.2) I shoot a mostly landscapes and buildings.3) I shoot mostly wide angle (as wide as 10mm). I also do flowers, birds and 90mm Macro.4) Currently looking at the SB-700 and SB-910. ----------My Flickr page: http://www.rhmimages.com

Hello All,I will be buying my first DSLR nest week, and I decided to go with  the Nikon D3100 plus the 18-55mm kit lens, 55-200 and the 35mm 1.8 or the D5100 but with just 2 lenses, the  kit lense and either the 35mm 1.8 or the 55-200.I am limited by my budget, so I want to check with you guys if the difference in money between both bodies is worth having to let one of the lenses go if I pick the D5100.So the options are:D3100+18-55mm+55-200mm+35mm 1.8D5100+18-55mm+55-200mm or 35mm 1.8Please...

Hi,With autumn here and winter approaching I am a bit concerned about taking my camera out walking with me. If there is even the tiniest spot of rain I quickly put my camera back in the bag. Am I over reacting or am I right to be worried? How much weather/rain the camera take?CheersChris

Ok, so there's a few specks of dust on the viewfinder of my D5100 (as in I can actually see them when taking pictures), I've tried using a blower to get rid of them but I'm not even sure of where they actually are...? If I'm seeing them through the viewfinder, does that mean they're on the mirrors, or (and I sincerely hope not) the image sensor? I've taken some test shots but haven't been able to find any spots in the pictures...so I think it's on the mirrors?Does anyone have any advice on...

My only current lens is the kit 18-55mm that came with my D5100. I'm after a fast prime and the 35mm f/1.8Gg seems ideal at such a cheap price and quality but the number of reviews mentioning barrel and longitudinal CA distortion are making me reconsider. What fast prime alternatives around 35mm are there without breaking the bank?
