Hi everyone,  I like photographing but clearly I’m not an expert, I’m actually just starting.  Decide to spend some money and buy a decent camera for a beginner. My first and only dslr I worked it so far it’s a Sony a200, old but really like her.  Trying to decide in between 3 diferente brands more or less same prices as qualities. Any suggestions? Sony a68K  Nikon D3400 Canon 2000D

(last post got deleted) I’m new to photography and the camera i currently own is the nikon d3000. it’s a bit of an older camera but it works relatively well. i own the following lens’s 18-55mm 55-200mm I mainly photograph dance (indoors) and football (outdoors). Is there a lens out where that will get high quality pictures where the lighting/exposure isn’t awful. I’d like to keep the price of the lens under $300 if possible.  Extra question- My camera takes very grainy pictures. Is there a...

I’ve been wanting to “upgrade” to FF since I have DX cameras (D70 and D300). I also have a couple of lenses that will be nice on the D700.  My question is “Is the D700 still relevant and worthy today?” alongside the newer models with more MP’s. I’ll have to decide if this is the path I want to go down or just wait a few more months and “upgrade” to a D750. The D850 is beautiful and seems like it would be relevant for quite some time to come. Decisions, decisions.  I’m just an amateur hobbyist...

Hi Guys, I know this is a question which has been discussed so many times, but after researched + many youtube videos, not helpful... The major problem is that I have a very complicated situation. I am a professional photographer doing portrait (school photos mainly - group, sports, theater, life style etc.), and studio photos, and events. I have Nikon equipments including the D5, D3s, D3 and D800, and some Nikon glasses. D5 is very capable for action and theater, which I am very happy. I...

i finally upgraded from the nikon d5500 to the d3, and it feels like the dial has been set back and i'm an absolute beginner again. i have searched the custom settings menu and pressed every button on this camera, but i can't figure out how to change the aperture or how to disable auto ISO.  i want to be in complete manual mode, but i can't figure out which button to press to change the aperture. when i set ISO to 200, the camera turns it back to iso 800. i'm assuming this is auto ISO? if...

I have a used (looks new) 7100 that always locks up when put in Live view still mode. Is this a common issue w this body? FW ver is C 1.03 and L is 2.015 SC was about 8500 when I got it. Stills through VF and LV video seem to work fine. But as soon as you hit LV for stills it activates for about 2-4 seconds then the rear screen goes blank and camera is stuck with power on.  Have to pull batt to shut down. Upon re inserting battery the err comes on top display and have to hit shutter button to...

As I think about a replacement for my DP3 Merrill which was destroyed in my vehicle fire in Sept, I was thinking about a D3. Since I record many panoramas, this would suffice for the most part. What to do?

Hi  I recently discovered the DK-17M and it worked a charm on my D3. Today, I got hold of a second-hand D810 in excellent condition and I tried the DK-17M on it. Unfortunately, while the focus and clarity was fine on the D810 with the standard eyepiece it took a serious turn for the worse when the DK-17M was fitted. I thought it was just a question of diopter adjustment but no matter whether the DK-17M is attached or not to the D810, twisting the diopter in the plus or minus direction as much...

Hi, I'm new to the rather lovely Nikon D3 and have read about the rear LCD fogging issue that occurred with this model. What I haven't really found in my search is the extent to which the issue has (if at all) proved troublesome over time. Most posts relate to discovering the fogging & contacting Nikon about it (or not) but there are very few follow ups detailing any impact over the course of time of ownership. I would be very grateful for any first hand experiences/advice - specifically,...
