Hi folks, A year or so ago I got a tremendous buy on a nearly new D3200 that I am really enjoying. It came with two lenses. 1) an 18-55mm 2) a 55-200mm These work well for me. I'm now considering the addition of a 70-300 lens to reach out a bit further. My question is this -- will a lens that is marked "Nikon AF NIKKOR 70-300mm 1.4-5.6 G" work suitably on my D3200? Many thanks for any help! Sincerely, CatchAsCatchCan
Hey all! I'm a graphic design student and have to photograph my work for my portfolio and I use a Nikon D3200. I have taken a digital photography course and a photography workshop so I understand the basics of white balance, ISO, aperture, etc. So my issue is that when I go to photograph my work, I check my light meter and It's almost completely maxed out (overexposed) but then when I download the photos onto my computer they are SO dark. I'm not sure if theres something wrong with my...
When I do the video recording on my D7200 with Sigma 18-200mm (AF old lens, none motor build in lens), I used the "manual focus mode" (M instead of AF) , whenever I zoom in I am out of focus. (1) What kind of lens that will hold the focus when zoon in and out ? (2) When kind of lens that have a very fast focus if I use the AF mode ? Nikon 18-200 AF-S (with the focus motor build-in the lens) ? (3) Can not used the "face recognition mode" because this mode will focus on the face of people on...
I've always assumed that raw files are exactly that - raw data from the sensor with no processing by the camera at all. However, after realizing there is a "camera distortion control" file that needs to be periodically updated in the camera, I've started to question if this is true. My D3200 has all sorts of image helper settings like "noise reduction" and "auto distortion control". I always assumed these were bypassed for raw, but now I'm not so sure. The manual doesn't appear to give a...
I bought a D3200 a couple of years ago when Amazon had it and the non-VR 18-55 and 55-200 lenses for cheap. I've never been happy with the results - in fact, I think the photos are consistently worse than the old Canon S3 point and shoot it replaced. A couple of days ago, I did some experimentation. I set the camera for full auto and raw storage. I sat the camera on my deck railing (very sturdy - no movement) and took pictures of a tree about 50' away on a sunny day. Knowing that zoom lenses...
I have just started playing around with my cameras video capability modes and noticed when trying out the AF-F setting in live view the autofocus is not working as it should. It will focus by itself right when I turn the setting on but does not focus on its own when I move the camera to different subjects. I have to half press the shutter and it stays focused only in that range which is more of the capabilities of the AF-S setting. Is there something i'm doing wrong? I have searched the...
New to photography and especially the video aspect. Have D3200 and would like advice on best lenses to video soccer matches. Am able to be within 15-20 ft of sideline for many games and am at ground level. Do have tripod. occasionally there are some bleachers I can take advantage of for a bit of elevation advantage. I know VERY little about any of this, so if you have time and wisdom, please share your thoughts and experience. Thank you.
