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...
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...
