So here is my situation: I shoot with Nikon D3500 and I'm pretty satisfied with it. It does require careful post-processing and effort to find the most efficient settings for shooting, but the results that come from that small camera are really pleasant. For a while I came to idea to purchase one more the same body. That might sound strange to someone, but my reasoning is simple: over having backup body, I will have opportunity to walk with two lenses on, which will help, as I tend to switch...

I'm relatively inexperienced in photography, so any help would be much appreciated. In high school photo classes I used a Minolta Srt-(???) SLR. I came into some different lenses for it, but it malfunctioned before I had the chance to really try them out (repairing it was not in my budget, until after the rise of digital; would still love to get it working again, but I digress...) I recently purchased a Nikon D3500 to start getting back into it, still learning the ins and outs of the camera...

Hi all, I purchased a new D3500 a few months ago having traded up from my faithful D40. One of the reasons I made the switch was to have better autofocus, as the D40 only had 3 "points", but I've had more issues with the D3500 than I could have imagined and am considering not even keeping it at this point. All issues are with the fully auto version of AF -- if I select the focus point and let the camera focus, it's ok. Am I doing something wrong, do I have a faulty unit, or do I just need a...

I'm looking for some advice when selecting equipment for an industrial camera system.  The current system works OK, but I had to slow down the ISO due to the low light and moving parts.  My plan was to upgrade the D3500 to a D750 and add an extra Savage LED-SB light without a color gel.  I have a $10,000 budget for 3 cameras and 9 lights (front, back, & side images).  Should I consider any different equipment? I want to take pictures of each part on a paint line and run it through an...

I have a Nikon D3500 and am looking to add a prime lens to my kit. After doing some research and watching some videos, I really like what the 50mm focal length provides. I understand that on a cropped sensor camera (DX) the 50mm prime lens would be more like a 75mm or so and the 35mm would be more like the 50mm. Thing I dont understand is that Nikon evidently makes these DX lenses which are supposed to be for cropped sensor cameras but I am not sure if that means a 35mm DX lens is going to be...
