comment Best AUTO in entry-level DSLR
Questions asking for general product recommendations are off-topic because they tend to go out of date quickly. FWIW, any entry level DSLR will produce fairly decent images in Auto mode.

There are numerous superior lenses to the 18-105 for the same kind of money

comment Low light when using Macro Reversing Ring
not so much a 'manual control button' as the ability to manually actuate the little metal lever on the lens, but yes

comment Low light when using Macro Reversing Ring
I wrote a blog post for Photo SE, way back, that explains in detail how to use a reversing ring, including overcoming the problem you're having. Check it out: photo.blogoverflow.com/2011/07/…

You don't need an adaptor. Providing your lens has an external aperture lever (most Nikon-compatible lenses do) you can just hold it open.

comment Nikon 18-55 vr ii vs Nikon 18-70
The VR II is a much more modern lens with decent specs for an entry-level lens - it's a marked improvement over the older 18-55. I'd go with that. Also consider the 35mm 1.8G which is a fantastic lens for the price.

comment Techniques to make images with dark background 'pop'
Can you give any examples of the effect you're trying to achieve? 'Pop' is highly subjective.

comment Techniques used in the photograph
It's just the effect of using a wider angle lens, coupled with a model with slim legs.

Not much will change, but it's still pretty subjective.

Unfortunately product recommendation questions are off-topic as they don't fit the format of the site: there is no one correct answer to 'what is a good camera'.

comment Hailina 35x any good?
filmwasters.com/forum/index.php?topic=4617.0 - a user review, about the third hit on Google. TL:DR - nothing special, a bit cheaply made. But for a tenner, why not give it a go? Heck, you could probably get that and a film SLR for under £50 at most.

comment Nikon d7000 and lenses
Contact a local camera shop or two that deals in second hand cameras and ask for a quote. Or look on eBay and see what they're going for. It's not rocket surgery.
