Hi, I'm getting back into photography (took a multi-year hiatus) and I was thinking rather than relearning my D80 that maybe I should buy a new D5500 or D5600 and start fresh with that. I guess the touch screen would be a plus in addition to getting better photos at higher ISO's which would seem to be good for lower light shooting. Whether or not the 24mp vs 10mp is that critical I'm not certain, but I would think it should yield sharper photos. I have a nikkor 18-200mm VR lens and a few...

My current kit is D610 with that 24-85mm kit lens and a polarizing filter. This trip I'm taking is driving from WI to CA and stopping along the national parks along the way. I won't be camping at campsites overnight. I am there to enjoy the hike, the scenery, and some photos will be nice, but I am not planning on going hardcore on the photography aspect. In the past when I traveled with a D80 I had a 18-300 lens. Looking at old photos most were in the 18-80mm range. For this trip, do you...
Recently I have made a pleasure to me myself and updated my D7000 to D500 body and - generally - I'm very happy with new camera. The dilemma I'm solving now is by what lens shall I complete my kit today. Currently I'm using my over ten-years-old Nikkor 18-200 VR I which I have bought for - at that time - high end D80 camera as my mostly travel and all-around lens. Many things has happened in digital photography since then and I have slightly changed my attitude too (... from "... look, I was...
I currently have a D5100 and would consider upgrading to the D7xxx or other series. I bought the D5100 because of the fully articulating LCD. I often take pictures of wildflowers near the ground and many are in vertical (portrait) mode. I have often wondered how you use the tilting only LCD's in vertical mode. It seems Nikon only uses the articulating LCD on the D5xxx series and wonder how vertical mode is handled on tilting only LCD's. I was using a D80 and the fixed LCD caused me to get...

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...
After finally upgrading from my D80 to a D7200, I find myself not really using my V1 and J4 anymore. I want to sell them, but I have no idea what kind of value to place on them. Does anyone have a good reference or method to determine the value of my Nikon 1 systems?

Let me start by saying I have been shooting slr/dslr for 20+ yrs, although the tech/math part of it is not my forte.. I'm so confused as to why my photos lack brilliance & sharpness with my d7100. My old D80 pics are by far way more impressive. I thought perhaps it might be due to one particular lens (70-300mm nikkor dx 5.6 vr) however LRcc is not detecting metadata from the d80 shots. I know there are a lot of variables in my problem. My question is: how do I determine where I'm messing...
Hello all, I know DX and FX formats are different. But this is the dilemma I am currently facing. My first camera was Nikon D80, I've had it for a few years and I loved it, it was great. My only problem with it was the small frame especially when using the 50mm lens. I had to sell it in 2014 and I've been without a camera since then. Now I want to get back into the scene but due to my limited budget, I'm finding it hard to make a decision. I am not a professional, I won't be making any money...

Hello, i just received a Nikon D5600 and found out that it has issues with several of my lenses. with the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 (no vc, about 3 years old) it focuses perfectly on the OVF but its back focusing in Liveview. the image is blurry and i get focus confirm where i shouldn't. with the Sigma 18-200 DC OS (7-8 years old with internal focus motor) not focusing at all in both OVF and LV(motor doesn't move and the VC isn't working either). with the Tamron 17-55 f2.8 it sometimes fine but in...
