Hello! My name is john and i am a teen interested in photography. I own a Nikon D3000 and i just wanted to know something. So the other day, my dad gave me some old camera equipment from back in his day, including a Canon FD 28mm f2.8 lens, and it was something that drew my attention. i mounted it on a Canon AE-1 that he also gave me and i realized that it was a very sharp, wide angle and actually good lens. Being an owner of only a Nikkor 18-55 stock lens and 50-200 aftermarket one, i really...

I have been taking photos/had a love for photography for close to 10 years. Recently photography has come full circle for me and *travel photography specifically is something I am pursuing hardcore. My first camera was given to me, it was a Nikon D3000 - that camera was stolen about 3 years ago. That being said, I don't think I want to get Nikon again, I've heard they have limited lenses, and a few other things - I'm not an expert...I would like to hear honest advice from more experienced...

Hello. I recently happened to use D3000. I was already aware of "the" hot or stuck pixel issue sort of embedded in several Nikon models, yet it was even more annoying and frustrating to notice it appearing on mine regardless of conditions. I have tried almost all tricks on the Internet so far but ended up here with nothing. I learned that raw file post-production through Photoshop or Lightroom can be viable. Still, I really feel like shooting without caring about such stuff. Because I...

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...
