Is there a way to lock the focus point position on a D3000.  On my D300 and D810 there is a lock around the multi-selector.  My nose keeps changing where the focus point is. Tthanks.

Okay - so I took advantage of Nikon's deal for the D500 plus grip at the reduced price and now that the holidays are over, I am going through the owner's manual and starting to set up the camera - far more complex than my previous D300 was but we'll get there.  My question though is on choosing a browser and post processing software.  I have always used Nikon View NX/NX2 for my browser with my D100, D200, and D300.  Hate to simply say that View was 'good enough", but it was good enough for my...

I would love to switch to a full frame camera like a D610.  I am currently using a D300.   The problem is that I don't want to spend the money to upgrade my lenses to FX.   Is there still a noticeable benefit in having a full frame camera if you use DX lenses on it?  My main reason for upgrading the camera is to shoot better in low light.

I am a long time user of a D300, but have grown frustrated with low light capabilities from a distance. I take low light photos primarily at church. At my former church I could get close to the action with the D300 during "rehearsals." At my current church I can't do that. I have to zoom in from the balcony or the side. I know that these types of low light photos are challenging with most cameras, but it is causing me to spend a lot of time cleaning up photos later on. I'm intrigued by the...

Hi, I'd like to start with astrophotography but before spending cash on new equipment, I'd like to know what you guys should suggest my lens to start with: On a Nikon D300 i have the choice between a Tokina 12-24 f4 and a nikkor 24mm 2.8 afd (Fx format so 36 mm on the d300)?

Just received the Wasabi EN-EL18 battery charger today (also marked MH-26 in one place on the box and LCH-DC-ENEL18 on a decal on another part of the box) and I have a question concerning it since there were no directions with the charger.  It seems straight forward enough - pretty much the same as the Nikon OEM charger I use to charge my Nikon EN-EL-4a battery for use in my D300 grip.  I inserted an OEM Nikon EN-EL18a battery into one of the two charging chambers and plugged the charger in....

I just shot 30 images in my D300. They imprinted on the CD card. I tried plugging into a card reader, was not recognized. Tried direct plug in, camera to USB port, still not recognized. Looked at devices on PC Nikon D300 is there . Am using Picasa, it works fine, camera appears to be fine, only 6500 clicks, and computer seems fine.  Ran a deep scan. Switched USB ports. Picasa does recognize my Epson printer.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated. --NA

So, I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the D500.  I've got a 16-85 VR1 from my D300 and also have a good range of good glass to go with my D810.  For those that have the D500 and the new 16-80 and have also used the older 16-85, how much difference in image quality is readily apparent between the older and newer lenses?  I guess the newer lens is faster (can't recall the specs) and that would be nice, but otherwise, what are your opinions?  Thanks much.

Hi there, I just purchased the above lens for my Nikon D300s and the auto-focus won't work despite me switching on all the right settings.  From my research it looks like it is supposed to work with the D300s, which has a built-in motor. Ken Rockwell wrote an article on this lens and according to him the AF should work with my camera.  The retailer I bought it from is saying that because my D300 is "entry level" it does not have a motor hence why the auto-focus won't work. But I am pretty...

Hi, As I was looking at some pictures of the "tour de France", it occured to me that the wheel spokes were blurred only for the upper part while the lower part of the wheels were sharp. As both parts are moving oppositely but with the same speed, it should be blurred identically. However, as cyclists are coming towards me, the upper part may appear speedier while the lower one is slowed down, and the exposure speed may enhance the effect. Picture: Nikon D300, 1/500, 90 mm (sorry, could not...
