    yeah though it might not seem like it at first like that other guy months ago looking for a nikon hat but i kinda just want to know which of these two mugs looks better.

    Should I get a 24-70mm or a 70-200mm mug?

    Ok, I don't know if I posted this in the right section cause it could be an off-topic thread but then again its may also belong to Nikon accessories (I saw someone's thread here looking for Nikon hats). So which do you guys suggest? 24-70mm doesnt have a bottle neck, while the 70-200mm has one...

    Looking to buy my first DSLR

    About that bokeh lens, you can get an inexpensive 35mm f/1.8 or the 200mm f/2 VRII and get bokeh. It's just that, don't expect really, really nice ones with cheap lenses. And as for your first (Nikon) and second (Canon) choices, you should also consider if your area has more available Nikon or...

    What is a good zoom lens for a D5100

    The Vibration Reduction feature would be useful for you when you don't wanna use a tripod. Since you will be taking candid shots of people in the street (o.o), then VR would help eliminate camera shake so when you zoom at full focal length, you still can take sharp photos at longer exposures...

    Looking to buy my first DSLR

    I apologize; I wasn't clear. I mean noisy like sound noisy, not noisy like there's a lot of grain on the image. Like when the whole place is quiet then the autofocus motor would make than mechanical noise :wink:.

    Buying a camera like buying a car?

    Forget Hardware?? The only reason why I play Angry Birds with my Nikon Coolpix S800c is because it has a GPU! :lol: lolwut

    Looking to buy my first DSLR

    Yeah, built-in Autofocus Motors would allow you to purchase old lenses like the AF-D type NIKKOR lenses. This will allow you to save money with cheaper glass. However, it's noisy; not good for weddings, religious events, or at night (:hugs:). The D7000 is one of those cameras with a built-in...

    Looking to buy my first DSLR

    The camera body does only little of the work; its mostly the lens and the photographer. That's why tons of people here will tell you to invest on better glass than upgrading to a body. Also, a lot of people change their camera bodies only to upgrade from a crop sensor camera ("Nikon DX"; I don't...

    Looking to buy my first DSLR

    I'm a Nikon guy so I'm going to compare the D3200 and the D5100. I also own both a D3100 (my first awesome camera) and a D7000 (given to me after a while); I still shoot with my D3100 nevertheless. The D3200 and the D5100 are both APS-C Crop Sensor cameras. Meaning, it works well on Nikon DX...

    P510 problem w zoom

    the battery problem might be solved easily by buying a new batter. the previous owner probably charged it overnight or more than it should be.

    Looking to buy a new dslr

    Ok in that case... I still recommend getting the D5100 or the D3200. Although the D90 has a built-in autofocus motor (meaning you will be able to autofocus old lenses like those during the film days), its low light performance isn't as good as the D5100 or the D3200. Low noise at high ISO...

    Looking to buy a new dslr

    YOu said you also will be shooting both day and night... I'm guessing the cars will be moving (not in a studio or stationary) and you wanna capture them in action? Try the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II. You'd get the range you need when in race tracks or roads and the wide aperture and VRII would...

    Advice? Portrait Photos

    a focal length of 24 or 35mm would be super! oh wait sorry, compact camera... disregard.

    Advice? Portrait Photos

    It may not necessarily be because of exposed skin but because that's the area of your subject with the highest luminance. You may want to add some light to your subject by using a flash (with a diffuser dome) but dont make it too bright that the subject turns white; there should be some...

    A Good Camera & Lens for Basic Car Photography?

    Yeah... get a camera that works great in low light (the D3200 has low noise at around ISO 800-1600) and a lens that fits your needs. Then buy lights... lots of lights and strobes.

    To those d7000 owners who have dumped their 18-105

    It's about 1.3 feet / 0.38 meters for any of its focal length (as per the Nikon website). You'll enjoy this lens and it's metal mount! The VRII is most useful in long focal lengths. However, if you really plan to use the wide end on most of your shootings with this lens, why not consider the...

    To those d7000 owners who have dumped their 18-105

    I have a D7000. I got it with an 18-105mm kit lens but I sold it and just used my D3100's 18-55mm VR. Compared to the 18-105mm, the 18-55mm doesnt have ED Glass and has a moving front element (people say that this reduces lens build quality). But, I also replaced my 18-55mm with a 16-85mm...

    Battery Charger for Nikon P510

    Why not get something branded by Nikon to ensure compatibility. You can select either one of these charger models that suits you best: 1.) MH-61 Battery Charger - You take the battery out of the camera, then put the battery here. It has a pull-out plug. 2.) EH-69P AC Adapter - You can connect...
