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...

I recently bought an Olympus OM-D E-M5 in mint condition for a really cheap price. It was a great deal and for me it's a lot better than buying an expensive new Mark II. I'm now in the process of buying some lenses for it. Me & my girlfriend are leaving for a 14-month long tip spent adventuring (off-trail hiking and climbing mainly) so it's nice to have a nice and light camera setup for the trip - compared to my old Nikon D3100. I mostly like taking landscape photos so a wide-angle lens is...

Hello! First, i want to apologize for my bad english :D I have a D3100 50mm 1.8G, but it is really old and shoot only 24fps at 1080p. I decided to change the camera and found 3 cameras that i really liked. 1. Pana G6 2. Pana GF7 3. Sony a5100 (but if costs more, thats why i would prefer G6 or GF7)I will use Sigma 30mm 2.8 or Pana G 25mm 1.7 with this cameras. So what camera is better for video shooting? G6 or GF7? Also, for photos will it be better than my old D3100? Thanks for your attention!

Greetings, i'm using a Nikon F5 film SLR body with brand new Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art. The problem is autofocus - in AF-S mode the autofocus is quite slow, loud, and a gentle vibration comes from the lens with a slight scratching sound, in the end it usually nails the focus but it takes it's time with quite a lot of searching. AF-C is virtually unusable, it searches in long slow steps, and when it locks it re-searches often, rendering this function completely useless. So at first i thought perhaps...

Hi I use a nikon d3100 and lenses with no hyperfocal setting display.  I have read and watched a lot about this topic but am struggling.  The pertinent questions I have are:  Can I use autofocus? How accurate do i need to be when focusing at the hyperfocal distance? What if there is nothing to focus on at the hyperfocal distance? Thank you  Steve

Hi, I've lately been searching for my first (serious) lens-interchangeable camera ; have searched on the web and also tried some out in the store but I am still not able to chose one in particular... To give you some personal background : I am a 20 yo student who has owned a compact Sony camera til this day. In the last year I have been more and more attracted to photography and the art of capturing moments. I have thus decided to make the investment and by my own camera (I have been using my...

okay uh so to be clear; I'm an amateur photographer -13 yrs old- I need a speedlite but every time i settle on buying one i find out that there's something wrong with it..for example i was going to buy the Nikon SB-400 but it doesn't move sideways and that's huge no for me. I'm kind of on a budget but I still don't want a crappy, cheap speedlite. So can anyone recommend: A) a speed light compatible with Nikon D3100 B) it has to be an automatic one -I'm self taught so i have no one to tell me...

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...
