Hi. Quite new to photography and found my few year old D5000 Nikon. I know it's not the best but don't/can't upgrade currently. I am primarily shooting horses, riders, indoors and outdoors. Looking into buying a new lens, which fits the camera, maybe has a stabilizer and is better in low light. Any suggestions? And what are good online second hand shops for lenses?  Thanks.

Dear Me and my girlfriend are following a photography course (Nikon D5000 and Sony A6000), now for the next class we need to buy a flash. At first I was going to buy a Sony flash i.ex. Sony HVL-F43M, but now I’m leaning more towards Nissin (searching the forum) I have read wonderful things about the I40, but as we need for the class remote trigger, I’m thinking that the Nissin DI700a + Air Commander is a better option? For the Nikon I’m going to buy (try to find secondhand) a SB-910. Is it...

I've got a Lenovo G500s Touch, if that matters. We bought this camera used, so if there are software or drivers needed, that could be it. However, I've downloaded ViewNXi, Capture NX-D, and View NX2, to no avail.   Could it be something as silly as the fact that the USB cable is a Kodak brand cable?  I figure there must be something really basic that I'm missing, but reading through the manual and looking at YouTube tutorials is turning up nothing about this issue. Any and all help is...

Newbie requesting advice re sharpness at distance. I would be grateful for some advice re whether I should be expecting more from my X20 . I'm very happy with the photos it produces of people/foreground but any landscape shots look smeared/blurry . I understand that the camera is best at f2.8-f5, I've set the iso at 100, switched off the face recognition, and even used the manual focussing set at infinity.  at the long end. autofocus set to area, focussing on the large hotel still focussing...

After months of researching for a DSLR that fits my price range, I've found that the D3300 offers the most bang for your buck. The price just recently dropped to $496. It comes with a Wi-Fi adapter which I'm really not bothered about, but it also comes with a ML-L3 remote and a 16gb memory card. I could have saved up more for one of  D5000's but it just offered more bells and whistles and to be honest I don't need it. It would be nice to have more options but it's ok. I don't mind. Now, the...

Thinking of getting a lens hood for A6000. Anyone currently using the below hoods. The metal ring hood look very shallow not sure how effective it would be. Any suggestion? --chiue -Nikon D5000 / Sony A6000Kodak Z990 P880 DX7590 Z915 DX6440 V803 M420 C190 C875 ZX3

Hi to all, I sold my Nikon D5000 and want to buy mirrorless. I like OM-D specifications and design, so i borrowed M10 with 12-50 lens from my friend. Because of bad weather i took few shots indoor with 2 permanent lights with umbrellas. I shot to raw and jpeg, but when i saw the pictures and try to make some retouches i was horrified with the amount fo noise on the picture at ISO 500 and 1600. Is it normal? Thak you guys. martin ISO 500, only cropped image

So I've been recently investigating the possibility of upgrading the D5000 to a newer camera.  Although the D5000 still works fine, I'd like higher resolution for more cropping/enlarging flexibility, some amount of weather resistance, and more bracketing options for HDR processing. I am definitely not interested in the expense or weight of an FX camera. As much as I like and use the D5000's flip screen, I'm considering moving up an entire series to the D7100. Seem reasonable?  With the new...
