Like most gearhead communities, we tend to concentrate on the newest/biggest/most expensive. But most people don't have the disposable income to buy an A7RII or 5D IV etc with top of the line lenses. We (even us working pros) use what we can afford and what works reliably. A friend's recent misfortune got me thinking about this. She's a talented semi-pro photographer but without much money and her old Nikon D40x just died, so she needed a new camera. Now, many of you will scoff because she...
Here's a list of my equipment that I use for regular photography: Nikon D40x, Nikon D90, Nikon D300s, Nikon 18-55 VR, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 70-200 f/2.8, Canon G7X Mk ll, GoPro Hero 4 Silver. 1) Where is the Milky Way in the sky of southwest Iowa about 9 pm ? 2) If using one of my DSLRs which lens would be best for first tries at night photos or a night lapse of the Milky Way ? 3) The G7X Mk ll has a night lapse video feature that I have used once. It works well but is limited to about 10-15...
This is the equipment I currently own. 1) old D40X and 2) slightly less old D5100. My current lenses are 1) Nikon 18-55 mm kit lens, 2) Nikon 55-200 mm telephoto, and 3) Tokina 12-28 f/4 super wide. I'm not an accomplished photographer. I mostly take photos of events I'm at, or places I'm visiting while on vacation, or RV trips. I want good quality pictures for viewing when I get home and to show family and friends. I never expect to sell any nor to enter any photo contests. All that said, I...
Ok..doing my research. I can get a AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor ED 55-200mm F4-5.6G lens at a pretty low price (hopefully) and I'm trying to find the cheapest body I can get that it will work with. Since this is a DX lens, I'm thinking probably the D40? Or the D40x? I'm just an "excitable snapshooter" anymore, not looking to print, sell or portfolio anything. Thanks bunches....I've never owned a Nikon before (except an L5), maybe that can change! ~Wes --Photographs, 'he asked him knowingly'
My Nikon D40x is working fine (it's taking pictures); but I can't preview the pictures in the monitor. I can playback the pictures back after I take them, but I used to be able to see the view/scene in the LCD monitor prior to taking the shot. I have read the manual, as I suspect that when I loaned my camera, something may have been accidentally turned off. I am not referring to Live view which is not a feature of the d40x. I was able to take a quick look at the LCD monitor and then use the...
Hi there ! I'm new to 500px and to photography in general. I have always been very fond of photography and loved taking pictures but never taken it seriously or invested much time or money into it as a hobby. However, the birth of my son has led me to want to capture every moment and has sparked a passion to learn. I've owned a Nikon D40x for about 7+ years. I only have a standard kit lens and have an older model HP laptop. I'm planning on upgrading both to build up my skills. I can really...
I bought D5500 with the 18-140mm kit lens and thought it was awesome in comparison to my old D40x. Then I put 35mm prime on it and was completely in love, never wanting to switch back. That is until I saw some birds on the deck and wanted a closeup which made me switch to the zoom lens. Now I can't believe how soft and unfocused the photos look with the kit lens. Is it something I'm doing wrong with the kit lens? Is the prime just that much better? Or is there something wrong with my kit lens...
