    D5200 Lens ~ (Landscape) Seeking Advice

    Appreciate the debate on the auto focus topic, and one well worth addressing. My eyes are going bad, especially at closer ranges so I think I'd prefer the auto focus simply to assist me with the process, if that makes sense. :) I've used manual lenses in the past but the older I get, and since...

    D5200 Lens ~ (Landscape) Seeking Advice

    Thank you for the information, truly appreciate the helpful folks here. One question I have is do you use a tripod most of the time with this lens with a remote release?

    D5200 Lens ~ Seeking at least 300mm

    Thanks again! I purchased a refurb off Amazon and have been really impressed with it. Worked fine at our daughter's graduation, which was indoors. Seemed to be enough light in the place where the images came out really clear and not real grainy at all. I had it set to "auto" ISO so not sure what...

    D5200 Lens ~ (Landscape) Seeking Advice

    The 18-55 "kit" lens I have is obviously average. Have not been real impressed with the quality. I'm looking for a nice lens for landscapes. I love the wide-angle types. Budget under $300 if possible. Just getting ideas right now and recommendations what you all shoot with. :)

    Ideas for camera bag - 300mm adaptability

    Hey gang! Been looking on Amazon for an hour and I'm trying to get ideas for a sling type bag which will allow me to keep the lens on the body. I shoot with a Nikon D5200 and have the 70-300MM lens. The configuration ideally would allow me to walk around and keep the camera mostly in the bag...

    D5200 Lens ~ Seeking at least 300mm

    What about a good lens hood for this one? Not sure of the size, or if there are better designs for outdoor shooting that I'm not aware of, if that makes sense.

    D5200 Lens ~ Seeking at least 300mm

    The more I think about it, we will just purchase the photo/s from the vendor who's taking the shots during the event. However, I will buy the lens for my wildlife shots outside. :) Thanks everyone!

    D5200 Lens ~ Seeking at least 300mm

    Hey everyone! I have a Nikon D5200 and I'm trying to get some recommendations on a decent 300mm lens that will fit this model. The brand name isn't as important, but I would like something that has good, to above quality output. This lens also must be fully automatic, with vibration reduction...

    With all his money so could I. I don't blame him.

    MySpace is making a comeback?...

    Remember Pop Rocks, PacMan and MySpace? I heard MySpace is making a comeback so I had to look it up and sure enough, it's still out there. The interface looks totally different but it appears to be more targeted to celebrities and other ...self-promoters. I'll stick to my occasional Facebook...

    ~ Monitor Upgrade ~

    Oh my...perhaps I should have mentioned a budget. Under $200 I was thinking. I need to research this more apparently because I'm not sure what questions to even ask. I just want a monitor that can project my images as true as possible. Like, what brands are best at that for instance. My...

    Flickr, Facebook, Where??

    Thanks for the info everyone. Yes, I do like Flickr too. I'll stick with that, for it's just a hobby. I had to convince myself years ago that in order to love my passion I had to let go of the frequent thought process that I was going to make money at photography, for a living that is. If I...

    ~ Monitor Upgrade ~

    Hello people! I have an ancient monitor so I'm starting to get ideas on what to buy next for my photography hobby. I want something large enough and of decent quality. I use a PC if that matters. I want something I can calibrate so my images can be as close as possible to the true output of my...

    ~ D5200 Expert Custom Settings ~

    I recently purchased a D5200, upgraded from a D40. Looking for advice from experienced D5200 photographers on what camera settings to adjust from default to make your shooting experience more productive. I personally shoot in RAW format. I've looked into the Ken Rockwell online setups and...

    Honestly I know nothing about him so I wanted to check here first. I'm not a professional photographer who shoots thousands of photos in a single day on assignment so I don't mind the larger files. You never know when a very special image might come around and if so, I want to make sure I have...

    From Ken Rockwell..... ? Why does Ken say shooting in RAW is basically pointless? Am I missing something here? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "I use JPEG basic. To set this, use: MENU > CAMERA > Image quality > JPEG...

    Well, if vehicles can park for us nothing is impossible! :) In all seriousness, thanks for the explanation on the RAW topic. Great elevator talk!
