Hi dear all I am trying to practice aviation photography, I have Nikon D3100 and AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED when I take a shot in longer focal, subject (aircraft) is dark and I have to improve it by change image level in editors like PS, I use A mode and camera set shutter speed and I set the f/9, do you have a suggestion for me? Please see this: http://uupload.ir/files/bu0b_22.jpg Thanks

Hi everyone. I seem to be having difficulty with the AF on my camera. When focusing on an object/animal and I have the 3D 11point focus activated ( Or any of the AF options) it will only flash on the far left hand corner thus I can only take pictures of things that are on the left hand side. if the object moves  and I move the camera it will still only focus on the far left hand corner. How do I get it to focus where I want it to?  Its VERY frustrating! Regards

I have a Bushnell North Star Telescope and have recently purchased a 1.25 Barlow lens to mount my Nikon D3100 camera to it. I have tried it a couple times this week, and while the camera does mount easily to the telescope, the pictures come out upside down and the focus is still bit soft. I noticed that the Barlow lens comes apart and the only way to mount my camera on the telescope is to unscrew the the first ring of the Barlow lens. This does't seem right because it looks like that black...

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. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...

I got a 1.25 Barlow lens for Christmas which I am just trying out for the first time. Connected it to my Nikon D3100 using the T-ring and mounted it onto my Bushnell North Star Telescope. It definitely helped with my initial focus problem, but I'm still bit disappointed; focus seems to be just a bit off...the image could be sharper.  Also, I have seen in some posts here the soft focus may be the result of the tripod shaking a bit and suggestions about using a cable release....how would a...

hi all, I'm just about to purchase my first macro lens. I have an entry level Nikon D3100 and am torn between two lenses. The tokina 100mm macro vs Nikon 85mm macro. I'd read that the tokina wouldn't allow autofocus to work with my camera but it sounds like a good lens. Does anyone know how important the autofocus is or use the tokina with a Nikon D3100? Much appreciated.

Hey y'all. I'm new to this website and this is my very first post. I have a question that is very frustrating. Recently, I purchased a new camera (Nikon D5500 to be exact). After I shot some pictures, I exported them to my computer. I went to open them up, but they wouldn't open. I tried using the Windows 10 photos and the photo gallery, and they both said, "We can't open this file". I had also taken some shots before on my school camera which is the Nikon D3100 (also RAW) and I can open them...

I have been asked to photograph a friend's wedding. This would be my first wedding and I am not sure weather my equipment, a Nikon D3100 and two lenses one being 50 mm and an 18-50 would be good enough. The ceremony would be carried out in the afternoon in a golf club. Could you please give me any tips and tricks that I could use if you have done a wedding before. Do I need a list with the different shots I could take in the day? Do I need to take some photographs of poses for the couple and...

Hi everyone! I recently bought my first  digital camera a nikon D3100, it came with the standard 18-55mm lens which I can get nice shots with however I LOVE to take photos of marine mammals when I go on boating trips.  The first time I used it for this was last week and even though I was getting ''Semi'' Ok pics from this lens, I was having problems with getting nice shots of  dolphins that were at a distance. I also noticed that once I had focused on a whale for example and I was ready to...
