I have a Nikon d5100, sigma 10-20 f3.5, and a Nikon 10-200 vrII. recently I have started getting in landscapes and am considering some form of upgrade of kit, just not sure what and where yet so hoping for your advice. Do I upgrade my body (D7200) or do I look at getting better glass something like a Nikon 17-55 f2.8, lenses wise would be looking at around £400ish second hand body would require some more saving. At at the moment I think I am noticing limitations in both the body and lens,...
I recently upgraded to the Nikon D600. The one feature that I miss from my D5100 is the ability to rotate the screen. This was useful when I was taking pictures that were above me head or by my feet—or when I was taking a self-portrait. I am not looking to break the bank with Capture One software. I don't need to tether camera controls. All I really want (right now) is a way to extend the screen of the camera to a separate monitor, even to an iphone or ipad. Besides pointing my laptop's...
Anyone using a Sony a6300/a6000 and Sony a7II with adapted lenses. I have quite a few lenses from various manufacturers and same with adapters. Just sold my son's D5100 and D300 so he needs a new small camera. He also has some good Nikon Dx lenses (12-24 f4G) and 16-85vr. Any noticable difference in AF/MF in the APC and full frame bodies? Cannot afford a Sony a7SII or a7RII and he wants smaller than D500 (he has a D7100) . Fuji is not supported in India. Posted here since he would only be...
Good day! I'm really new to photography so you can just tell me if I understood this wrong. I'm planning to buy a Nikon 50mm 1.8G for my D5100 primarily portrait shots of my girlfriend (Just for fun, nothing professional) I tried pointing my kit lens 18-55 outside my apartment to some trees on a bright and sunny day, set to aperture priority then set my aperture to f3.5, ISO is 100. I noticed that my shutter speed is already ranging from 2500-3200. I'm still learning the ropes on stops that's...

Hi, I am planning to go to US for a tour and want to carry a single lens which is full of features for my Nikon D5100. I do not want to upgrade my camera now to Nikon D7200 (which I want to) but want to upgrade my kit lens 18-50mm to Nikkor AF-S DX 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR (2015). I am puzzled between Nikkor 18-300 & Tamron 16-300 but as per the reviews I have read, Tamron may offer good features at a low price such as Weather Seal, full Manual at Auto-focus mode etc. but when it comes to...
Hello, I hardly ever use a flash, so I am not familiar with the do's and don'ts of hot shoe connections. However, I want to mount an accessory shoe extension that fits the "hot shoe" of a Nikon D5100 and a D5500. The extension is all-metal, probably aluminum. It is not to be used for a flashgun, but for other purposes. I must assume that it is likely to touch (thus "short across") the contacts of the cameras' hot shoe. Before I do something stupid, my question is: Is there a risk of creating...
Hi all I've been doing photography for years, as a hobby and intermittently, and generally know what I'm doing with a camera (well to an amateur level). I use a Nikon D5100. I'm having a problem lately with focus. It's particularly photographs of people that aren't coming out focused - mainly when it's from a distance and there's surrounding objects/scenery, but also closer ones, from a few feet away. This is with my 18-200 lens. With my prime 35 lens they're a lot better. So I tested the...
Hi folks, I'm sure that this issue has been discussed many times on this forum. However, my searches haven't located those discussions. Today I grabbed my D5100 and mounted the latest 18-55 VR lens (with the button), and was unable to get the body to recognize the lens. I purchased this lens, a refurb, about 10 months ago. I have't been able to use my camera due to a recurring physical issue since then. I know that when I received the lens it was working fine. I do have the latest...
