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?

Recently I bought a new Sony RX100M5 which I supposed to have an image quality comparable to my 1.5 crop dslr. (I understand that it cannot be equal to dslr because of smaller sensor at least not so much worse.) After playing with it and making number of shots i found many advantages but also one significant disadvantage compared to my dslr. Often it shots images with unacceptable quality and I'm thinking that it's a defect in the camera. I decided to contact Sony support but first I would...

Thank you for your time! I am a photography novice looking for advice.  I'm researching what camera setup to invest in for our Aquababies business. We do swim lessons for parent-child groups, mostly parents with wee babies, toddlers, kids 0-7 years old. We are in indoor hotel pools which are generally lower light quality, subjects are moving and splashing about, and we will be taking pictures throughout the lessons from the side of the pool for promotion, social media, some printing. So,...

Following the advice of Kelly cook, I repost my original post from the Camera buying advice section in this Fuji section. I just wanted keep my view as open as possible. Being able to choose my own 50th birthday present, doesn't make the choice of picking a new camera easier, except for the budget issue 😉. I will sketch my situation rather extensively to give you a better insight in my situation. The final question is at the end…followed by the remarks already made by Kelly, Ido and Mike in...

i have a Nikon D5000 and have used a canon powershot 50x zoom. It has developed some issues and have been reading many reviews. I have mainly looked at the Nikon Powershot series and find I like the Nikon P900 and Nikon B700. The reviews make them seen as a toss up. I do a lot of nature photography and love my D5000 because of the reaction to movement of birds in flight. Does anyone have a suggestion as to one camera over another. I haven't found any cameras that handle it and realize the...

I would like to buy a good quality printer for under $500 (can’t go any higher including tax and shipping if any) . I have researched different printers - Canon Pixma Pro 100, HP printers, and Epson Artisan 1430 printer and others. What I'm looking for is a printer that is portable, that prints professional quality prints, wireless, and has low cost cartridge replacement. What I'm using the printer to do is print wireless photo as well as print tethered photos for family functions. I just...
