Is the camera set to use the aperture ring for setting the aperture in M and A mode? It's under custom setting f9 - Customize Command Dials. If so, deactivate that setting and try again.

Take a look at DSoMark's comparison of the low light performance of the D800 and then the 5D Mark iii. The D800 is clearly the better camera in low light according to this (by a mile)... Then go look at this real world test that looks at the actual noise performance in low light for a real world situation. Hmm, that's funny, the 5D mark iii looks clearer ...

The DxO Mark scores are misleading, but that doesn't mean the gap in performance isn't real! Several Nikon bodies (D800, D600 many of the D3xxx and D5xxx series) are using Sony Exmor sensors which feature a cutting edge ADC/read noise reduction system to achieve massive gains in dynamic range compared to Canon sensors, which are designed and fabricated in ...

Photography is about the whole package, not just the imager performance but also the user interface, mechanical design, lenses and accessories etc. For example STM lenses (Canon) or integrated wireless TTL capabilities (Nikons always had them but they're quite new to Canon.) This answer will only offer some context in the process and production of Canon ...

DXOMark scores are pretty problematic - they measure several aspects of the sensor, in low light on a heavily down-sampled image, then derive all sort of numbers from those measurements and then calculate a single score weighting all those numbers differently. The reason Nikon looks better than Canon is that the Sony sensors Nikon are using have less noise ...

Sometimes you have to upgrade to a required level! You will have to check out the release nose of the latest firmware, it will tell you whether it is a cumulative update or you need to install a previous firmware first. Been there, done this. (Just a quick note: installing the latest firmware is sometimes not beneficial. I resisted to install a newer ...

No, you don't need to install previous updates if installing a newer one, and on the camera settings it's possible to check the firmware version by doing the following: 1. Enter Setup Menu 2. Click on Firmware Settings option This link has the latest firmwares available for Nikon cameras: ...

I friend of mine found a solution in this site: The frequency is 38,4KHz

Another factor: Digital sensors are typically smaller than 35MM film frames. A lens which only has to produce a good (reasonably flat-focus and evenly lit) image across a smaller area can be simpler/cheaper than one which has to cover a larger area, for the same focal length and light-gathering ability. So some "digital" lenses are so marked as a warning ...

The relevant details appear to be on page 167 of your manual under the custom bracketing settings. You can set the parameters to either be set manually or automatically, it sounds like they must have been changed to automatic from manual.

Yes, lenses designed for digital sensors have several differences from their older film based camera lens counterparts. One of the primary differences is that digital sensors are more reflective than film, so anti-reflective coatings are applied to the rear element of a digital lens. This helps prevent reflections off the sensor that could result in image ...

Some 'film' lenses designed for 35mm rangefinder cameras have a rear element which lies quite close to the plane of the film or sensor (mostly wide-angle lenses). These work fine for film, but when used on a digital camera cause quite noticeable colour shifts to the left and right of the frame. This is due to the extreme angle of the light from the rear ...

This is a personal choice based on how much you value the features. Go over the specifications, read the reviews, then decided. No one here can make that decision for you.

I guess newer product is better product. Nikon D5200 has lot many good feature than D5100. Some of them are ISO sensitivity, Higher FPS, More No of AF points(39 vs 9). So your extra bucks will definitely paid off.

There is one significant difference between film and digital sensor for lens optics - digital sensors have a bit of glass and some filters in front of them. The lensrental.com blog has a pretty extensive series of posts on the effect of the sensor stack (short version, there is a very real effect for large aperture lenses) - so it is quite possible that the ...

I think you are putting too much emphasis on the "digital" part of the lens' DG designation. It seems to be more to differentiate them from "digital" lenses that are APS-C only. Sigma calls their current APS-C only lenses "DC". When digital SLRs first began to gain a foothold in the market, they almost all had sensors that were APS-C or similar sized. So new ...

From the symptoms you describe a virus is highly unlikely. Physical damage is a high possibility. When placed the card in the wallet, if you then placed the wallet in your back pocket and sat down this could have put significant stress on the card resulting in damage. If this is the case card is probably beyond economical recovery. If there is any ...

Yes, but it would depend on what Android device you have. DslrDashboard claims to support it on some Android devices: To be able to use the application with your USB connected DSLR you will need an Android device that supports the USB host function and an USB OTG adapter that you can buy cheap on internet or build it yourself. The application is free, ...

Maybe you can ask for a bayonet replacement. Not sure your lens can be serviced, though.

The Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG APO Macro is a lens that is available for both Sigma cameras and as a third party lens for many other brands, among them Nikon. These different manufacturers uses different lens mounts and this particular lens is available for Canon EF, Nikon F (FX), Pentax KAF, Sigma SA Bayonet and Sony/Minolta Alpha mounts. These mounts are not ...

The two main places the sand could be is on your mirror or on your focus screen. I'd suggest using a bulb blower (e.g., RocketBlower), and not physically touching anything in the camera (e.g., using a brush or microfiber or something). Whatever you do, don't use canned air. Simply taking the lens off the camera will show you the mirror. The focus screen ...
