Hey All I have a Nikon D3100 with the standard 18-55mm lens, very much a beginner's cam from what I understand. I am looking to get started on doing some gigs here and there and was wondering what some of the essential things I need would be. I am assuming a good flash and a better lens than what I am currently using but since I am still new to this I am not sure of what else. I am right now focused on getting better and learning as much as I can. I have some friends who are willing to let me...

I've got 2 questions, in here First of all, what is the best camera for HD recording with a mic Jack and a flipping screen? Secondly, I want this camera for a small youtube channel that I've got and I was wondering, is it better to have a camera where I can connect a microphone to it, or is it better to have a portable digital recorder that is not directly connected to my camera? Thanks in advance to the people who can reply to my questions.
I'm trying to get up to speed on the mechanics involved with mounting vintage lenses on DSLRs. I bought an Tokina RMC 35-105mm F3.5-4.3 Close Focus AI on ebay and I'm able to mount it on a Nikon D3100, but the aperture ring does not have any effect on the blades. This is true whether the lens is mounted or unmounted. When the lens is off, I'm able to slide the bayonet and open the aperture, but that's the only way I'm able to affect the iris. Does this mean the lens is mechanically broken,...

Hello, I just got a slightly used D610 body and I would really like to use it while it's raining. In the past I used my D3100 with the 35 1.8G during a drizzle, but was taking it out of my bag only when I had a shot and was immediately putting it back in, so it just had a few splashes on it, at each time. So my first question is can I do this with normal rain with the D610 ? Also, can one estimate the limits of weather sealing for the D610? I know it is not a fully weather-sealed body but...

Hey, I just got my Helios 44-2, unfortunately it came without front and rear lens cap, can I use the regular clip on front cap as long as it's 49mm in diameter? For the lens cap - I've ordered M42 to Nikon adapter, can I use the rear cap from either the Nikkor 40mm f/2.8 (screw on) or from the 18-55mm II kit lens (push on) on the adapter and cover the rear of the lens that way? Or do I have to buy separate rear cap specially for the 44-2? Thank you, if anything is unclear, please tell me,...
I recently bought a used Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC (OS)* HSM to use on the Nikon D3100. I've noticed that it struggles to focus when I use any of the outer focus points (center point is fine) and when tracking. So I've been using the AF lock button a lot, but it's nearly impossible to do that when shooting moving subjects. Is this a firmware, calibration, or defect issue? Here are some examples. The first one is out of focus and the second is in focus (I used the center focus point).
Dear all, My sister has a Nikon D3100 since quite a while now and it was working just fine until it started showing this problem a few month ago, it is a bit random and not always there but the more we use it, the more often it appears: The screen is black, completely, as if the camera is off. We can focus, and take pictures and everything with the viewfinder but the screen is black if we want liveview, playback, menu... everything. It is NOT broken as sometimes it works and we can do...
