Greetings, i am thinking of buying my first DSLR because even though i am an amateur photographer it seems that the previous compact camera that i have is not sufficient enough to cover my needs. I was talking with a friend of mine(photographer) and she told me that she has an old Nikon D5000 that she could give me along with a 18-55mm and 18-200mm lens for 200 euros(200 bucks). Is this a good deal for me? If not do you have any suggestions for a beginners dslr? Thank you in advance

Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera. For driving the focus motor and VR they must use at least two pins to power the lens and at least two...

Thank you all for your help!

I was assigned to take 5 photos this week for a class, and I have a few ideas but need help narrowing them down: Image #4: Abstract “Existing in thought or as an idea but not having a physical or concrete existence” - Oxford My ideas: 1. Outside at night- There are lights coming out of the ground by some flagpoles (it's definitely a bright enough light source, it's lighting the entire flagpole) and it's in a well-lit area. Close up picutre of me, hood up, can't see my face really, and I...

I am the new owner (4Hrs) of a D5000 having upgraded from a D90.  The user's manual on page 11 lists HDR (high dynamic range) between Auto bracketing  (#3)  and Active D-Lighting (#5) on the information display.  The HDR setting is not highlighted on the screen or on the regular menu screen and I cannot highlight it in any setting on the mode dial. I tried to activate it in both JPEG & RAW with no luck.  Does anyone know what I am missing? Thanks, Keith

Hi everyone, So, I have a question about combining the D7200 with the older 18-55 DX VR (so not the VR II) kit lens. I spent years with a D5000 as an amateur photographer, but feel that I have now reached its limits. Mainly, its low-light performance is uncomparable to its current-day successors. I decided to go for a new Nikon rather than a Sony system camera since I can keep using my lens(es). On the D5000, I used the kit 18-55 with very satisfactory results. (the other kit lens, a 55-200,...

Hi all, I'm a casual user here, hoping to get some advice. Basically, I'm considering to get a new lens for my d5000 but at the same time have also been planning for some time to get a small mirrorless (Olympus epl7 or similar). My usage is for general stuff and shooting small kids. Question is, does it still make sense to continue to invest in DSLR especially when the body I have is quite dated? Currently what i'm mostly using is the d5000 with the 35mm prime (50mm equivalent) attached most...

Hello All I  used D5000 with 55-200mm VR  for sharp portrait and also i have used other cameras such as Pentax k-x and K50 with 55-300mm that gave sharp images but before 2 years , i found Sony a65 with SAM 55-200mm gave better IQ.  Now im interesting in different Nikon  cameras with 85mm 1.8G for sharp portraits. I found in some reviews that Nikon D5300 gave excellent IQ and better than D7100. i also wrote that D7200 and D7100 have better focusing system than D5300. I like D5300 for the...

Hi  My D5000 has ceased to show an image in shoot mode. Viewfinder still works, it takes pics ok, and it shows Menu etc. and stored photos. But when I want to shoot it only shows the info page. Any suggestions? Or should I just find a mechanic? Thanks
