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...

Hey i'm new here! Now onto the problem :( I used to own a nikon d3100 and got amazing pictures out of it (even rented a 24-70 and was stunned by the sharpness) Now i have a nikon d610 and was shooting with a 50mm f1.8g for a long time. Calibrated this lens and its a beast, so i decided to purchase a new lens(second hand), the 24-70 f2.8g. Ofcourse before using this lens in the field i decided to calibrate it and ... what a pain. After calibrating the lens not a single of my images come out...

I'm not sure if it's referred to as a Dolly Zoom or a Vertigo Effect (these are names some friends have suggested, but it seems they apply more to videos/film making than they do to photography). I am a full-on novice, but I'm trying to recreate a picture I took some years ago out of pure fluke. It is where the object is in focus and the background looks to be rushing to/away from me. I have a Nikon D3100 and a AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm lens.   Thanks for your help! Andy

Hi, I have a D3100 and I have my focus set to single-point focus.  Somehow along the line, my single point focus has switched from the center dot to the dot on the far-right and I cannot figure out how to change it back to the center.  Please help!
