I am struggling to get to grips with shutter speeds, ISO and aperture .....
Someone told me to look at my histogram but unsure of what the histogram is supposed to look like, from what Ive read there is no ideal looking histogram..... in need of help
I am new to the DSLR family. I got my first one last Fall and so far I love it. I have taken so okay pictures and some awful ones too. I want to learn as much as I can and hopefully upgrade my lenses. I want to learn to take pics of the moon and stars, especially where the stars look like they are swirling. I will get it, eventually!
Got a 2nd hand D3100 and when i take a shot the mirror stay up until I release it. I have never came across this on any other camera. Is this usual for the d3100. Just to explain. It stays dark through the viewfinder until I release the button for taking the shots. The shutter curtain is working ok because the pictures are fine but this isn't what I'm used to.
I've had a D3100 with a 35mm 1.8 lens for a couple of months now. I'm pretty happy with the majority of my photos considering this is my first SLR but I can't seem to grasp capturing moving people. This includes close ups of people in conversation or at a distance (for example, shooting sport). The problem seems to be my shutter speed, it is always too slow even w...
Hi i just bought a d3100 off ebay and all ok so i thought , shot a couple hundred images for test seems ok , then used flash a few times i set ev to 0.3 comp and flash comp to 0 , seemed ok when reviewed on pc , but i noticed when reviewed back on camera the flash comp reads -0.3 if i change comp to 0.7 and set flash comp to 0 the camera when reviewed back reads 0.7 flash...
I'm fairly new to DSLR photography...a couple of months now. I was told not to buy many accessories and lenses until I'm familiar with the camera...kind of decided to bin that suggestion for better or for worse ha. What do you guys have for your D3100 kit? I have:
18mm - 55mm VR kit lens
55mm-300mm VR lens
35mm 1.8 Prime lens
Basic tripod from Amazon (Ha...
Hey all just bought this camera so will be uploading my pics :-0
Hi all, I have just bought my first Nikon Camera ever!! It is obviously a D3100, so far I am finding it different to what I am used to but can see it is a great camera. Hopefully I'll get some pictures on here soon!!!
I've just bought my first DSLR and I'm now trying to figure out if I'm any good at taking professional pictures.
My question is if you guys recommend 2nd hand lenses for a beginner ? I wouldn't want to invest a ridiculous amount of money and discover that I won't be able to get my money back.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Is there any members here from philippines? im from pasig ^___^ i want to meet you guys and explore with our d3100 :D i dont have any group to come with so if you guys are available wanna meet up you some of these days ahead :D
I've had my D3100 for a few weeks now and intermittently the camera doesn't respond to any of the bottons on the left side or the multi selector. One minute its fine and the next does nothing. Actually when this happens the the right arrow on the multi selector always seems to work but no other arrows. The command dial doesn't seem affected.
Anyone else exp...
Thinking about making a small laminated pocket card with all the juicy little details from the manuals, reminders and other goodies (ISO, frame rate and aperature). Maybe shape it to the bottom of the camera and attach with a couple velcro dots. Anyone else interested?
Anyone seen a card like this? (aside from the poor looking set on amazon)
