Sorry if this is wrong, it's my first time posting (anything). I'm looking at DSLR's for animal, rural, light and random happy snaps shooting, especially fast moving horses and waves as such. I need a fast shutter speed with a high FPS... I was looking at the Canon EOS 700D as it fitted most of my criteria but I have just been offered a Nikon D3000 for a very low price ($250 down from $350) So, 1. I'm a noob, sorry if I get completely lost! 2. What are the cons/pro's to each and how do they...
Hey there, I'm looking to buy my first dSLR, and despite looking at a multitude of different used cameras and reading reviews and getting conflicting opinions, I'm totally lost. I'm interested in photography, but have never gotten a real camera due to the high cost to get into it. I've only ever taken pictures on my crappy old flip phone, and before that, Kodak disposables. So I'm totally new to this game. I don't mind spending good money on something I know I'll use often, but I have no way...
Early this morning I grabbed my D600 for a shoot, but realized after turning it on that the camera wasn't working. On the top-facing display it was showing the read-out as if I were holding down the front "Fn" button to change between shooting in FX and DX formats, but wasn't touching the button at all. I tried to use other features in the camera, but with the camera thinking the "Fn" button was held down, all other functions weren't working, but I could still use the shutter to take a...
I read another thread on here (which I can't find now) which I think said that a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 wouldn't be able to autofocus on a D3000... although someone did suggest a different focal length which would autofocus (correct me if I'm wrong). Also on that post was the mention of AF-S lenses being the only ones that will autofocus on the D3000... So my questions are: Is it possible to get a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 which would be able to autofocus on a Nikon D3000? (if not, why not? Out of...
I'm trying to use my D3000 in manual mode but it seems to be doing it's own thing. I"m using the 55mm kit lens and it will only let me set the f stop to 36 if I zoom in close to an object. If I zoom out it steps the f stop down. I've tried resetting everything I can think of. I change it to f 36 in A mode and if I change it to M it will reset itself to whatever f stop it thinks is right. It seems to me I was able to set the aperture to whatever I chose in M mode before but something seems...

I've never used a digital reflex, only film ones. I own a compact (Panasonic TZ8) and recently I bought an Olympus PEN E-PL1, used. I am not fully satisfied because the Oly has very soft lenses wide open (see this thread http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53836118 and beware! it's huge). I found a Canon 1000D and a Nikon D3000 for 180 €, used, with kit 18-55. These are on the low end of the prices for Canon and Nikon "old" entry level digital equipment. For 170 € I could buy a Sigma 19 mm...
Hello All I'm a Canon user, but I have a friend who owns a Nikon D3000. It's tough for me to give him recommendations since I'm unfamiliar with the Nikon system. However, he is interested in a speedlite b/c the built-in flash is starting to frustrate him (as well it should). I went as far as downloading the manual for this particular model, but could find no reference to Nikon's "Commander" mode. Is the D3000 incapable of communicating remotely with Nikon speedlites directly? If that's...
I am buying my first DSLR. I have a very tight budget--not much more than $500--and I know I have to (or want to) get not only a good body, but a good zoom and prime lens, tripod, and filters. In order not to compromise on everything besides the body, I have to be willing to get a body that isn't as fancy as the most recent ones. All used, I can get the Nikon D3000 for $160, D5000 for $200, and the D80 for around $190. I'm wondering which is the best bang for my buck. I know this doesn't...

Hello Everybody! I am new in this forum site. I was wondering for some idea and got this site from googling. However, let me describe my queries: I am using my Nikon 3000 camera with the lens that I bought (JAA776DC - AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G). I have some queries about this combination. As per the original website, it has got Auto Focus facility and Its name also means something like that as the name starts with AF! However, I could not find auto focus with it! Now I have following...
