This isn't a problem at all. The behaviour of the camera is normal. When the aperture is adjusted on the camera (eiter automatically or manually) the aperture of the lens wont change untill the moment when you take the shot. The reason to design the camera in this way is to maximize the available light (and microcontrast between out-of-focus and in focus ...

You have a few options - and they all boil down to getting less light into the camera: Smaller aperture using a smaller aperture (higher f-number) will make the image darker, it will also increase the depth of field (usually a good thing in landscape photography) and will reduce sharpness if you push it past a certain value (test with your own camera/lens ...

In general, all camera brands have their own proprietary system for connecting lenses. Modern mounts are all bayonet style, which means they twist and lock rather than needing to screw on, as older lenses did. These mounts are not interchangeable, so you'll need a lens that matches your camera bodies. Most brands have different sub-variants of their mount, ...

The lens you've linked to is the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II. It will not fit your camera, because it is a Canon EOS lens: neither the physical linkage nor the electronic contacts match those on your camera. What you're looking for is a Nikon F-mount lens. The easiest way to ensure you've got an F-mount lens is to buy a new lens that's Nikon-branded that is for ...

If it can be fixed, the only people who can do it will be Nikon or an authorised repair shop. Though given that the D50 is getting on a bit, it will probably cost more than the camera is worth.

In contrast to other presets, you do not need to remove d-0, you simply overwrite it with a new one. Hold the "WB" button on the back of the camera. While holding the WB button, select with the back dial "Pre" and with the front "d-0" (if you have reversed the dials in the options, it'll be the other way around) Release the WB button. Now you have ...

The D5200 does not have a panorama mode built in. You will need to take multiple shots and stitch them in software like Photoshop or Hugin. When you take your shots, do not simply stand still and twist at the waist. This will result in distorted panoramas. Instead, you need to imagine that the end of the lens is attached to a pole in the ground, and pivot ...

The 'D' series lenses have an aperture ring that you can adjust on the lens. This is different than the 'G' series which do not have that and are completely electronically controlled. On mechanical cameras, the f/stop is set from the lens itself. You adjust the f/stop on the lens, and then when you shoot the photo, the body closes the aperture to the ...

Depending on your budget, any 18-55mm f2.8 would be a good all in one lens. You will be able to get fairly wide shots capturing Mother, Baby, children and surrounding at the 18mm end whereas and at the 55mm end, you will be able to take some really nice close ups of the baby. The f2.8 (specially if you can stretch to a lens that is f2.8 through the lens ...

There aren't wider lenses that are as rectilinear. This is the reason it is as expensive as it is. The price hasn't even really gone up from what it originally cost. Adjusted for inflation, the lens, when new, was around $20,000. It now has additional value as a collectors item, so one in good condition with papers and box and such sells for more than ...

If you were using Shutter-Priority exposure mode, you would have wanted to set your EV compensation down -1 or -2 stops, depending on how overexposed your shot was. Even better would be to set your camera to Manual exposure mode, pick the shutter speed you want, and manual dial your aperture down (higher f/number) until you achieve the desired exposure ...

What you are looking for is a ND filter (Neutral Density). They comes both as a fixed value f/stops and as a variable filter. Which as it says either takes a fixed value of light or a variable amount. I own a variable which after a few test shots can be matched any lighting situation. The fixed amount ND filter, only matches the particular situation where ...

In general, you want to look at the lens mount. Cameras and lenses both use some standard of connector to ensure compatibility. In general, if a lens uses the same mount, it should be basically compatible, though some features may not work. For example, third party lenses may not support automatic adjustments on newer cameras without updates. Similarly, ...

Because the D5200 has an optical viewfinder, they haven't thought to build in a way to overlap images. P&S cameras typically use an LCD with liveview, so it's easier to implement a way to give a panorama-assist mode. There is, of course, nothing stopping camera manufacturers from adding this to the SLR liveview modes, or creating a dot-matrix LCD ...
