Hi all, I like to do low light photography mainly landscapes. I currently have a Nikon D3000 which is a few years old. I find it difficult to focus and compose in low light and if the camera has to be set out at a low level as i cannot get a good view through the view finder.  I am looking for a nikon with a fold out screen where I can have live view . D 3000 has neither. I was looking at the D5500 and the d500. any suggestions? also can I use the lenses i use now with the D3000? thanks raj

Hi, Would the autofocus function on a Nikon Nikkor AF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR Lens work on my Nikon D3300? Thanks!

1) The D5000 is only (AF wise) compatible with AF-S and AF-I lenses, are there still plenty of these lenses? Would it be a disadvantage? 2. I have used a friends D90 and D3000 with a Sigma lens with an aperture ring, but the aperture could only be changed using the body, otherwise it wouldn't change. Is this just this lens, would it be true of other Sigma's. Would it be true of Nikon lenses with aperture rings?

Hi everyone... new to the forum so hopefully I'm following etiquette.I currently own a D3000 with an 18-200 3.5-5.6 and a 50mm 1.8.I want to move up to something more capable of low-light work. I'm strictly an amateur who like to shoot all kinds of things. Most of them not moving :) So... I have my eye on a D5300 body for $699 plus tax or a used D7000 with a 35mm 1.8 for $700. It has approx 18,000 actuations. I can trade my D3000 in on the D5300 for about $70 which covers the taxes making...

Hi so my mother has owned a Nikon D3000 for some time now we've had great photos with it, but we are looking to upgrade soon and we wanted to rent out the Nikon D5300 for a week over at the borrow lenses website. So our question is would our, af-s Nikkor 18-55mm, and af-s DX Nikkor 55-300mm would be compatible with the D5300. We'd rather not spend any money on extra lenses to be shipped if it's not needed. Thanks in advance!

I brought my Nikon D3000 with us to the beach today. I make sure to be very careful. I have used many times before at the beach and other locations. It worked fine the first couple hours. Then, we allowed someone to take a picture of us. when my husband went to view it, he tried to zoom in (may have pressed a couple wrong buttons??) but the display screen froze with the picture and stats displayed,  so he turned it off. but when he went to turn it back on, nothing happened (mind you, we...

Hello. I just purchased a Tokina AT-X 100mm f2.8 Pro D Macro lens for my Nikon D3000. I did this with the full understanding that I could only use this lens in manual focus mode. I have the lens aperture set to f32 and locked at that position as per the requirements and can manually dial in an aperture in M and A modes. However, when I go to take the shot the lens aperture remains at f32 and it never opens up to what I have set on the LCD. For example, if I set the aperture on the LCD to f11...

Hi, im from kolkata, and will be buying my first DSLR this saturday. However i have some queries, and after reading up endless reviews on google and youtube i couldnt find any good answers. The thing is that, i will start with an entry level DSLR, because my budget isnt very high. After reading reviews i had singled out Nikon D3200 (Rs21,000), D3300 (25,000) and D5100 (24,000). The reason i didnt go for canon is because 1) the ones that will be within my budget are 1100D and 1200D and the...

Hello, I think I've made a very stupid mistake and while I was trying to upgrade the firmware of D3000, I accidentally used D300's files. Now when I switch it on (or off) flash comes up and gets on, display is blank, no operation no nothing apart from flash movement. Obviously, I've screwed it up . I sent it to local service and they asked for 400$! The camera is not worth 400$! Could anybody help me on how to reset this machine to factory defaults or fix this problem somehow? Thanks in...

I am having an issue with my D3300 and 70-300VR that is causing me a big headache. To put it simply every time I take a head on shot of aircraft with any settings the front portion of the plane is blurred. The wing portion and rear of the plane are sharp, just the front has issues. I have tried putting the focus point on the front of the plane, using small apertures such as F/9 and above, and increasing the shutter speed to say 1/2500 to avoid motion blur to no avail, everything keeps coming...
