(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...

Could  I have some advice my daughter is doing her frist ice skating competition this weekend. I would like to take photographs but only have 3 mins to get some shots.  The equipment I have is Nikon D300 and nlkon 105 Macro lens and tripod, I don’t think they will aloud flash it can be sometimes dark. Do you think i could still get half decent photos? What would be the best shutter speed, aperture and ISOto begin with. Sorry would love to go and buy the Nikon 70-200 but don’t have the money....

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...

After going through and selling the Nikon D70s, D200, D300, D3300, D7000 and D750, I decided to make the D7100 my main camera, keeping a D7000 as a 2nd camera. I mostly shoot events for Youth. I have a 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6g DX lens, 70-200 f/2.8 lens, and I am getting the 24-70 f/2.8 in the mail tomorrow. I often must shoot in poor lighting, so what are some other good options you all recommend? I often carry my D7000 and D7100 at the same time each with a different lens on, so which lens is...

Hi Guys, I'm having some issues using an ND filter on my D300.  I've noticed that the exposures I'm getting are wildly erratic.  I'm using B&W 10 stop ND filter on Tamron 10-24 mm f3.5-4.5.  Shot in manual exposure mode.  All these pictures are shot in ISO 200, F22,  and shutter speed is variable per picture. Here are some examples: This is the first picture and looks ok.... ISO 200, f22, exposure 30 seconds  and then subsequent shots look like this (below), even though my camera settings are...

Hi, I'm collecting a D850 I have been looking up memory cards. I haven't really kept up with the technology or the terminology. I was planning on getting an SDCard to start off with, but i will put a XQD card in at some point - just for the extra storage. I'm sure the shop will have a selection but I would like to know what spec. i really need. I shoot Landscapes, portrait, still life, general walk-around shooting. nothing fast like sport. always RAW 12 bit lossless compressed. sometimes i...

I'm looking for a general purpose everyday lens for a new D850. I'm just a hobbyist and have never really looked at FX lenses. I would like to keep the price around the 500 GBP mark (maybe a bit more) as most of the money is going on the camera. I'll start saving again. :-) I want sharpness and good contrast Basically just a nice picture. I considered the 24-70 but big and heavy and expensive, also i'm getting old. I was thinking that the Nikon 35mm f1.8 G ED AF-S Nikkor Lensbut it doesn't...

Hello everyone, I have a godox AD600-BM, coupled with X1T-N, shooting with Nikon D750. I have a strange problem. When I choose auto fp(both 1/200 and 1/250) in my nikon, up to 1/200 the transmitter sends proper signal to the flash unit. But when I increase the shutter speed, it sends the flash to give 4-5 stops lower than what is adjusted on the transmitter. I have tested this with Sekonic 458. This problem only occurs during the shooting, i.e. when I press the shutter to take the photo. When...

Hi, I'm planning an upgrade from D300 to FX, and with that I'll replace my Tokina SD 16-50 F2.8 DX lens by a 24-70 lens. Not fully decided on which brand I'll take, although I'm tending towards the Nikon due to corner sharpness (I'm mainly doing landscapes). One aspect I dislike in my current lens is the (lack of) rigidity of the lens barrel; one can move it sideways as there is a bit of play on it. Not an issue at all with regular shooting, but when attaching a Lee fiter holder, up to 2...

I have an 18-200 DX lens for my D300 and have always loved it.  What is the best 24-300 FX lens I could get for my D600?
