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.

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...

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...
