Trying to completely dry the camera certainly won't hurt. But the fact that the problem hasn't already gone away doesn't bode well. I guess the big question is if it's the camera's electronics or the LCD itself. Inspect the screen very closely to see if there are any tiny cracks- moisture could have gotten in but not been able to get out. If you see any, ...

The Nikon D7000 camera model us not listed on Sigma's compatibility table for this ring flash.

Two of the photos I examined were taken at f/13. By f/11, considerable degradation from diffraction has set in and only gets worse at f/13. Please see: http://www.photozone.de/nikon_ff/768-nikkorafs2485vrff?start=1 Using a smaller aperture requires a longer exposure time, in your case 1/60th second. At a focal length of 85mm, blur from camera shake will be ...

Not all Nikons have a built-in HDR mode. However, many Nikon and Canon have an advanced HDR option that far exceeds built-in options in many respects; compactness not being one of them. Many Nikon and Cannon cameras can be externally controlled and set their internal settings via USB. External laptops with HDR software provides for Advanced HDR in many ...

On the Nikon Cameras, the best setting for NON Moving objects ( buildings, flowers, Macro, Portraits) will be the AF-S mode.( Singe Focus Mode) The camera will lock onto a single object and remain focused until the finger is released. result will be a sharp Picture. From previous experience, I have noticed that the Nikon Cameras are set to AF-A as a ...

Camera grip replacement material: Adhesive-backed neoprene. I put it right over the old sticky grip on my Olympus E10. Very easy to work with, enough for 4 grips or more per package. I found this product under archery supplies of all places. Working great for me, and it's cheap! Gander Mountain Order Toll Free: 1-888-542-6337 Silence-ilator Pad (3.5” X ...

As noted in Nikon's knowledgebase, the D60 supports SDHC cards, but implicitly not SDXC (as SDXC is never mentioned in the page). This isn't surprising as the D60 was released in January 2008 and the SDXC standard was announced in January 2009. The SDHC standard has a largest possible size of 32 GB, hence your 64 GB card must be an SDXC card and is not ...

TL;DR: a synthetic rubber based adhesive is what you want From the service manual for Nikon SB-600 speedlight, you need to use Adhesive J67017 - rather cryptic. Googling this finds another Nikon service manual that says this product ID is for Cemedine 575. This is a japanese brand of Chloroprene Rubber adhesive - so any synthetic rubber based adhesive ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Narrower aperture and ND filter are your options. You could control the aperture in your lens or camera. Being a beginner you could try the cheaper ND filters available in eBay which comes from China which costs nothing much compared to the real cokin P square filters. Which comes with a bunch of filters and ring adapter. Quality could be bad but not tooo ...

I assume you mean the HDR mode that the D5100 has. Possible one or two other models. That only merges two shots internally into a JPG. There is no way to take additional shots. If you need more control, you'd need to manually shoot however many shots you need, use RAW and post-process. If you use Matrix metering, you can select the EV difference between ...

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 ...

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 ...

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, 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 ...

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, ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

You can put a charged EN-EL 14 battery and the internal battery should recharge as it charges both from an AC adapter or a battery. I usually leave the battery on the camera anyway, even though the manual says you should remove it if you don't use the camera for a long time. I like to be able to pick it up and start shooting right away :)

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 ...
