New user here and first-time poster.I have seen many posts in various places of D7000 series and D70 Nikon bodies eventually succumbing to the BGLOD/GLOD (Blinking Green Light of Death/Green Light of Death) hardware failure. I have a 1-month-old D3300 that I purchased online which just the other day died because of it. Has this happened to anyone else who has a D3000 series body?I will go into detail up to the point of death if anyone wants to know.Thank you.

Hi! A month ago I bought a second hand (6month old) Sony A7 with the 27-70 F3.5-5.6 OSS kitlens an have been exploring all the functions. (aside: I'm not at all a pro photographer, it's a hobby :) Started with the Nikon D3000 then Nikon D7000) I've been having some troubles with the focusing... I've tried all the setting, AF-S, AF-C, DMF, wide focus, center focus,... When i focus at a subject it gives me the green light that it is focused but I can see it is not. Or at other times it doesn't...

Hi Guys Im new to this forum and need some advise as a keen amatuer photographer. I have recently treated myself to a Nikon D7200 with the 18 -140mm lens kit. I also have a 18-55mm lens from my old D3000. I am looking to get myself a Macro lens with a budget of about £250. The only use for the lens will be detailed close up shots of wrist watch dials and movements as I am a watch collector. Currently when using my standard 18-55mm lens I have to crop right into the image with starts getting...

I take outdoor pics. Insects, birds, wildlife, flowers... and sometimes sometimes people. I've been using a Nikon d3000 and d3100 for a long time. With them I use a Nikkor 105mm for insects and flowers and a Sigma 18-250 zoom for birds and wildlife. They both produce REALLY sharp images. But I want better. Every review I read said the 750 takes better pics than the 810, so I saved and saved and finally bought a brand-spanking new Nikon d750 body. I put the same lens on the 750 and... my...

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...

Hello, I currently own Nikon D3000 and the following lenses: kit 18-55mm VR AF-s DX + Nikon 55-200 VR. I want to purchase a new camera in about 5-6 months, but I'm not sure which path to take. I own the D3000 since 2012 and took a break from photography in 2015. Since I was a kid back then I didn't take time to learn photography in a proper way because I never thought that I would be able to afford a camera or a lens myself.. and mostly because I was doing trick photography all day from...

I've been trying my hand at portrait photography and using a new 35mm prime lens but pictures are no sharp enough. Been figuring out things bit by bit but this one's a road block. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Sharing samples here, please let me know what I'm doing wrong. FYI, I own a Nikon D3000, I know its a fossil, but was mostly unused until a year ago. Thanks, this is another one taken with the same camera-lens combination, but ts sharper blurry because of the unsteadiness, do...

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.

Hi, I've lately been searching for my first (serious) lens-interchangeable camera ; have searched on the web and also tried some out in the store but I am still not able to chose one in particular... To give you some personal background : I am a 20 yo student who has owned a compact Sony camera til this day. In the last year I have been more and more attracted to photography and the art of capturing moments. I have thus decided to make the investment and by my own camera (I have been using my...
