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...
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...
