Hi all. I'm a newbie in the market for a camera and was looking for some advice. I'm looking at these two particular models. I plan to learn how to shoot in manual mode and will be using it mostly be for my kids indoor sports/activities, going to parks, family activities, etc. I plan on getting an 18-135/18-140 lens to start and will likely add a telephoto after a little bit. Video quality is a bonus for sports games and school recitals but not a must. Currently, my kids lives are being...
I have D40X camera. This is the first time I am trying self timer. I set the self timer at 20 seconds and followed the instruction on the manual. The self timers works when I have the setting on auto. The timer does not work on P or A setting. these are the two settings I have tried. I should be able to use the timer on any setting. Am I not correct. An early response will be highly appreciated. I am leaving for Beach tomorror. Hopefully I will have a response prior to leaving for the...
We are setting up a website (furniture business. We've picked the template, have everything ready to go, except the photos. The template requires photos be in a 960 x 416 size. How do I take a picture (we have a nice Nikon D40X), that once edited, will not look like Stretch Armstrong? I have a photo of a china cabinet that is 78" tall. When I put it in this size, it looks like it is 2' tall and 78" wide. And, how do I edit the photos I have (20+years worth of work) to fit this size...

I've been doing some recreational bird photography with the first-generation 55-200 (no VR), and while it's adequate for snapping pictures of birds at feeders, I'd like something with a bit more range. VR/VC and faster AF would be appreciated as well. I don't expect my pictures to be National Geographic quality, but there are some cool birds in my area (notably Ospreys, Kingfishers, and Eastern Bluebirds) that I'd like to document. It's just for fun. My budget is $500 or so. Thanks for the help!
any one have the Nikon 18-140 3.5-5.6g DX ED VR AF-S on a D7000? If so, your thoughts and some samples. I currently have 18-135 kit lens my D40X came with and it's ok and I use it almost exclusively but am wondering if the 18-140 is better. So you find it fast enough for outdoor sports?? Thanks!
I am about to pull the trigger on purchasing an Olympus OMD-EM10, moving from a Nikon D90 and am curious as to the experience of others who have made a similar transition. I am an advanced amateur, initially moving from a P&S to Nikon D40x then to the D90. While I have been very pleased with the D90, I have never been completely happy with the low light performance despite having a few prime lenses and also find that I take it with me less often due to weight and bulk. Hence, the thought of...
I now own a D40X, D5100 and a D600. When first using all three cameras (large/fine setting), the photos were consistently on the dark side. To get a proper exposure using the cameras metering, I have had to change the exposure compensation on all three cameras. With the D40X I had to change to +0.3. With the D5100 I had to change to +0.7. Finally with the D600 I had to change to +1.0. Has anyone had the same experience with the D600 or other Nikon DSLR's? Is this common with Nikon DSLR's?
Hi. The local camera store was not particularly useful in helping me choose a camera. I am wondering is the practical benefit of a Nikon D5200 over a D3200? I'm coming from a Nikon D40X. I have an 18-200mm lens and an SB-900 speedlight already so I'd like to stay with Nikon, and add a 50mm prime. I shoot lots of full body portrait indoors, outdoor water sports, wild life, and scenery. It seems like the major difference is auto focus and video. What is the practical difference? Will I really...
