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

Hi all I'm planning on buying a tripod, but I getting so confused! My thought are going between Manfrotto 190, BeFree? The 055 seems very nice, but so heavy. I own a D5000 and Sony A6300. The tripod needs to be easy to carry on, but I really like the idea of a horizontal column. Is the ball head a must? Or is it enough to start with a plate? Thanks

I have not been to the forum in a long time so please excuse a question that has probably been answered. Somewhere I read that the super zooms like 18 to 200 are not as sharp. With my d5000 I got a Nikon DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55 and a AF-S Nikkor 55-200. I would like to have to carry only 1 lens. Is there a lens out there that would cover both and be just as good? Off brands as well. Need the auto focus and would rather not spend a fortune. Thanks for any help.

Hi All, Am not a total beginner in photography. But now am planning to upgrade to my first full frame camera. But due to my budget am planning to go for a used D610 and then by the FX lens letter. The primary reason why am going for a FF camera is basically for low light photography. A D610 with DX lens atleast for time being would it help me out in low light photography. My current camera is Nikon D5000

Hi all The search option didn't returned to me a clear answer. But I'm going to buy a Sony A6300 and was wondering what all-round lens to buy? Currently I have a Nikon D5000 with: -  Nikon 18-55mm & 55-200mm kit - Nikon 35mm - Sigma 10-20mm The 55-200mm I use not so often, but I've started a photography course and see the benefits of this range. What lens do you recommend to start? - SEL16-50 - 16-70 Zeiss, is the price difference vs. quality correct?  - Kit SEL16-50 / 55-210 - SEL18-105 -...

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...
