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. When I try to make the background white part of my items disappear. I have Photoshop CS6. I have attached a couple of pictures...

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...

Hi there, I currently have a Nikon D3100, but the even on the fastest shutter speed, it's not really that fast. I'm looking to get a bit more into a news photography so I want to get a much faster shutter speed to capture every moment. Is it worth getting a new camera altogether, or is there a way to make the shutter speed on my current camera even faster with a new lens maybe? Thanks, Pablo

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...
