Hi Seniors, Today attempted to take night shots of Cincinnati downtown skyline. Till Sunset, the photos are crisp and completely in focus. But after dark, I took 3 photos, but below is the best focus that I got. D5000 Live view LCD is pretty low resolution, still I zoomed in while focussing. When auto-focus got focus, I kept on half-pressing the button and switched focus to M. Finally, using self timer, took the snap. Still the buildings are not in focus. Please suggest what can I improve...

Hi! I’m pretty new to photography and still trying to figure out what kind of photography I like on top of astro, so in the first place I was thinking about buying an AF-S 35mm 1.8G for general purpose, and maybe an AF-S 50mm 1.8G or D later for some portraits or family pics. But I’m also pretty interested in macro photography, and there is the AF-S 40mm 2.8G Micro... Should I just jump in the middle with focal length and win the extra macro capability? Would it also be good for portraits?...

Hello all, I am not a pro and own a D5000. I am currently looking to purchase a zoom lens for bird photography. When looking at the pricing on Amazon.ca I am not sure what factors makes a lens much more expensive than another of similar focal capabilities. For example: 1-Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR Lens 2-Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens Bundle with Manufacturer Accessories & Accessory Kit (19 Items) Why would anyone pay $3,199.99 CDN for #1 vs $945.60 CDN...

I have an old D5000 with a standard Nikon 18-105; then I bouth a Nikon dr 35mm (in order to improve the optic brightness) because I started following the kids during their indor events (karate and group rhythmic gymnastics that means in both cases "quick movements" but on the first 2 people close together, instead on the second 6 kids dancing on the whole floor). With the 35 mm I can do good pictures when I am near the kid but when I have have to stay on the stand I am too far away. Further...

Hi All,  This is probably a dumb question but I wonder if someone can provide some light to it..  I used to have an old crop  Nikon D5000 and the Vivitar extension tubes for macro. These have the connectors. They worked ok when working on the D5000 and nikon kit lenses.  I recently switched to Nikon FF and got a couple of tamron G2 lenses (for the testcase I am using the  24-70 G2). When attaching the vivitar extension tubes to the tamron lens it is not able to focus. Even If I try to...

can anyone help me out with settings on my Nikon D5000 for shooting wildlife on overcast days where the subject is darker than the background.  Example: a bird sitting in a tree which is darker than the background.

Hi, I have owned the d5000 for around 7 years now. I'm a casual shooter which probably take the dslr out to shoot 1-3 times a month at the weekends. Mainly taking pictures of food, landscape when I have trips / hikes, some streets and night-long exposure photos, where I post it on Instagram. The recent shoot of the Christmas light display at night, I found that the ISO just isn't good enough (A lot of nose at ISO1600+). As its holiday season there is alot of sales going on atm and I have been...

I am a photo enthusiast but not a professional, I don't print large format pics or sell my pictures.  I have been using a Nikon D5000 for almost 8 years now but I am selling it and want to make the switch to canon.  The one I am looking at is the 80D with 18-135 lens and then save up for the 100-400 IS ii.   Most of my photos are girl's fastpitch softball, nature, sunsets, sunrises, vacation type photos.   The only other camera I am looking at right now would be the 7D mark ii but it seems...

Out of curiosity, what would be the current sale value of a Nikon D5000 with the 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses it came with? It was my first camera and after a quick google search, some rather expensive results came up?
