i recently purchased a D7500 and have become a bit confused by the AF modes. I used to have a D5000 which had far fewer choices. I shoot my kids mostly so used AFC with 3D on my D5000. I was often frustrated by focus misses and focus and low light performance were two key reasons I wanted a new body.  Ive read a lot comparing Dynamic Focus and 3D. I realize there are some considerations of when to use which based on how fast the camera can keep focus, etc. here's what I'm wondering - if we...

Dear all, A while I am looking for a new interchangeable camera. I have always had a Nikon D5000, but now I am looking for a smaller model with better specs. Through a lot of research, I have 2 camera's in consideration: Sony A600  (24mp, APS-C sensor) Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II (16.1 MP, MFT sensor) Sony A6000 has a benefit in 24 megapixels and it has a larger sensor size. While Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II has the benefit of a build-in stabilisator. Also, there are more affordable lenses...

Good Morning, New D750 shooter here, 28-300 lens. A bit overwhelmed by all the settings. Mostly I shoot sailboat racing. You can see my 750 work here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/31222785@N02/albums and my previous camera (D5000) work here; https://plus.google.com/+TimFuhrmann First thing I noticed is how dark the images go in the foreground when I'm shooting into the sun. While that would seem like d'oh moment to most people, I was a little shocked given the magnificent exposure balancing...

Hello, I bought the d5000 when it came out, and have been enjoying shooting with it since. 99% of the time I have a Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G lens on it (I also have a 35mm f/1.8G prime lens).   The main reason I'm feeling like upgrading is trying to take pictures of my kids (i.e. fast-moving subjects). My current setup does decently most of the time, but I'm finding myself disappointed at times when things end up blurry or grainy. I'm hoping a new body and/or lens would help with this, and...

Hi, I hope there's someone who could help me out. I'm using Nikon D5000 and wanna get an old SLR lens, particularly Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AI-S.  I don't know much about focal reducers but from what i've read they not only reduce the focal length but also expands your field of view which is exactly what i'm looking for. I can't afford a full frame camera at this moment so am looking for some alternatives. That being said, i've tried to find a focal reducer for the Nikkor lens i mentioned earlier...

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...

Im looking to buy a speedlight or very small studio strobe.  My budget is around $350 but it needs to have the following features.  -External port for battery (preferably an AC adapter) -GN 100+ -Compatible with Nikon D5000 and D5600 A small studio strobe will work too.  It has to be real small do to space limitations. Thank you all for your help!
