comment How to photograph low light indoor sport?
Stabilisation - if you're shooting volleyball, you're shooting at a bare minimum 1/400s. At that shutter speed, stabilisation shouldn't be too important. Shooting mode - indoor sports are one of the few places I use full manual. You don't want the camera deciding to drop the shutter speed just because someone wearing a white uniform is taking up the frame.

comment How to photograph low light indoor sport?
@MitchGoshorn You should turn that into an answer, but be aware there's no way that most volleyball matches will let you use a flash.

comment Should I buy a Nikon D3300 kit?
Note that the reason we don't have anything specific to the D3300 (or any other model) is because it's not a useful question long term - we'd rather have a question which is still useful next year when the D3300 has been superseded by the D3400, which is what the duplicate suggested by James attempts to do.

comment Why doesn't changing the aperture setting on my Nikon D80 change the image?
Voting to close as unclear: there's obviously a large amount of confusion as to exactly what's going on here, but posting some sample photos would help enormously.

Yes, and the AF/MF switch exists only for the Canon variant.

What makes you believe that shot isn't a composite?

comment What are the advantages of a lens having a fixed maximum aperture?
-1: there is a fundamental difference in construction between fixed aperture lenses and variable aperture lenses. Manufacturers don't "choose" to have their fixed aperture zooms "sandbag" at the wide end - the lens really does have the same aperture at all focal lengths.

comment What are the advantages/disadvantages of mirrorless over DSLR for capturing night life in cities?
This is better, but it's now really a duplicate of What are the technical advantages and disadvantages of mirrorless? followed by an off-topic product recommendation.

comment Why does the screen go black when I make the shutter speed faster?

comment Why does the screen go black when I make the shutter speed faster?
Please post a sample image (with shooting parameters - shutter speed, aperture, ISO) for both an image taken with slow shutter speed which looks good and a dark one with faster shutter speed.

comment Company solution to storing and sharing large album of photos?
Could you give a clue as to the actual number and total size of photos? What may be a "tremendous" number for one company could be peanuts for another.

comment What is the simplest way to consolidate a photo library that is spread across several hard drives?
The poster already has a NAS; he's looking for software solutions to consolidate his images, not another bit of hardware.
