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

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 -...
