Hi All, I had the D3100 for many years and served me well. So the time has come for an upgrade. I'm not pro photographer just love looking at sharp images but most importantly capturing the moment when my kid runs around like crazy. So i was looking at d5600 but i felt like i was getting the same thing as the d3100. I then checked the D7200. It really felt that i would be buying a more "semi-pro" dslr, a significant upgrade to D3100. But there is also D7500 (not an upgrade of d7200 i know)....

My university requires me to make a high quality video to keep my scholarship. The library offers three different cameras that I can rent:15 Canon T3i and SL1 models and 6 Nikon D3100 models. Which of these cameras would you recommend me use? The video will just be me talking and I will be indoors. Thanks for your advice!

Hello. I have a D3100 with the 18-55 kit lens and the nikkor 70-300. I bought it used a few months ago and it worked great. Since last week though, I can't change the shutter speed or aperture with the dial, regardless of the setting (A S or M). I did that constantly, so I know how to do it. But now it doesn't work. When I put the camera in P mode, it exposes correctly. Because of that, I'm guessing that the camera can actually control the speed and aperture, but I can't select them in A, S...

Hey all!New around here so I hope I post this in the right place...I want to ask you what flashgun I should buy. I have only recently started with photography and my dad and his wife asked me if I would like to take photographs of their wedding upcoming Octobre. I know what you're thinking! But this is a small wedding, not religious, just a small scale Dutch wedding. They will get married by a government official and then move the party to a small Greek restaurant. I've been there a few times...

I am setting up this studio to take pictures of products. We sell big items and so I have a white backdrop about 8ft high by 18ft wide. I also have a very large green wall. We bought some nice B&H LED lights. I am using a Nikon D3100 DSLR. I have the F stop set to F10. I have tried using Flash, No flash, fancy led lights and natural light. My pictures lack clarity.

Never having calibrated a monitor before, I have some questions for this great group of experts. I have a Dell Inspiron 7559 4K laptop, and will soon be using a Dell D3100 docking station to connect to my new Dell P2715Q 4K monitor which will be delivered soon.  I'm embarrassed by the following likely ignorant questions, but ignorance can be fixed with knowledge. Would appreciate any help or suggestions: 1. Is monitor calibration performed just for image editing software (I use DxO OpticesPro...

I am having trouble to get a 640x424 24FPS video setting on my Nikon D3100. When I go to the movie settings/quality, you have the various options to select, I selected the 640x424 24FPS option but when I record video it is still recording in 1080p mode. What am I dong wrong?

I take outdoor pics. Insects, birds, wildlife, flowers... and sometimes sometimes people. I've been using a Nikon d3000 and d3100 for a long time. With them I use a Nikkor 105mm for insects and flowers and a Sigma 18-250 zoom for birds and wildlife. They both produce REALLY sharp images. But I want better. Every review I read said the 750 takes better pics than the 810, so I saved and saved and finally bought a brand-spanking new Nikon d750 body. I put the same lens on the 750 and... my...
