Hi, I am having problems focusing when taking pictures of jewellery.

When I photograph a necklace (especially sparkly ones) certain parts  will be in focus but other parts will be blurry. I take a lot photographs but I am not experienced with settings.

Hi guys! I am an amateur - but familiar with custom settings, currently owning an old Nikon D40x with couple of lenses and am in a market for a new camera. I have been in stores checking out different cameras and reading lots of reviews and forums regarding dslr vs mirrorless, aps-c vs full frame, ovf vs evf and all that stuff, but when handling cameras in stores I liked A7II body size best - fitted nicely in my hands, liked that big and bright EVF. Kit lens gives me enough zoom, don´t need...

Hi Everyone To begin with, apologies if this question has already been raised. I have just joined the forum and quickly checked the D40x area but didn't see a relevant note. I have a D40x. I purchased the camera about 12 years ago (2006), put it in to storage with some other items and has remained there ever since ! I was clearing the loft out l4 weeks ago and found the camera and now intend to start using it. I checked around and purchased the book 'Nikon D40/D40x Digital Field Guide' by...

Hi! I am trying to find out what the problem is with my husbands camera. He has a Nikon D40x. Years ago he accidentally left the battery on charge too long and it melted the battery. He contacted Nikon and they sent him a new one! Shortly after that his camera stopped turning on. I've search the interwebs high and low and cannot find any info on what the problem can be. I'd rather not bring the camera in and spend half the cost of buying a new camera to just see whats wrong with it. To our...

Hi there. I have a Nikon D40x with the 18-55mm kit lens, and would like to know (before heading of out to take photo's) what settings I should use, to take photo's of Christmas light decorations on houses in my area? I do understand that a tripod would be a big advantage in taking such photo's, but unfortunately I am wheelchair bound, and would want (if possible) to take photo's from sitting in my car. Any help/suggestions would ne greatly appreciated.
