    Well i just got a nikon d60 and i freaking love it! I just have a few quick questions nothing major.

    1- Is there anyway i can keep the flash down so i dont have to hold it?

    2- The 2 lenses i got with the camera are ok, but when i get enough money which lense should i get?

    3- Finally, sometimes when im taking just regular shots and not action, the exposure stays open. How do i change this?

    Yes, ive looked in the manual but i just cannot find answers to 1 or 3

    1- Take the camera off Auto and put it to either Program, Aperature Priority or Shutter Priority.

    2- Huge question. I'd say shoot a lot and come back with more details on where you think the lenses you have are falling down and be sure to tell us your budget.

    3- Sounds like the cam isn't getting enough light. Shoot in brighter areas or change the ISO on the camera so it can get the image with less light or use a flash.

    1. Anything but Auto mode or the other presets. In other words you'll want to be in (P, S, A, M).

    Program Auto (like Auto mode but w/o flash and you can tweak it).
    Shutter Priority
    Aperture Priority
    Manual

    2. Depends on what your subject is and the conditions you shoot in.

    3. Shutter priority to at least 1/500 should do it, set Auto White Balance to 'on' and let the camera do the rest.

    Read your camera manual again, and again , and again , and again until you understand how your camera works. :thumbup:
