Can you clarify what you mean by the preview button?

comment Is Nikon D40X still good enough for a beginner?
I'd say if you can afford it, get the D5200. The leap in sensor technology alone is worth the difference. Take the D40 and get it converted for IR photography or something.

comment How to achieve this effect in photoshop?
Radial Blur exists in newer versions too. Spin Blur is just Radial Blur set to spin and applied with a control widget.

comment How can I remove shine on someone's face in Lightroom?
Use the Spot removal tool set to Heal mode with a relatively large radius. Really though, Lightroom is not set up for this kind of edit: that's what Photoshop is for.

comment What is this style of photo editing called?
That looks fairly natural editing to me - not much as been 'enhanced' and there's no particular effect. Perhaps you're from northern latitudes, in which case you may unfamiliar with what people call 'sunshine'?

comment Are there any hardshell covers / protectors for lenses?
I don't know of any hardshell protectors designed to be used while the lens is attached, but there is this reasonably well padded protector: outdoorphotogear.com/… . Otherwise you are probably looking at some kind of 3D printed solution as the most cost effective way of producing one.

comment Nikon d3100 edited images not saved on SD card
That's the manual for the ViewNX software - what does that have to do with cropping in the camera?

comment D90 and lenses upgrade
As an aside, assuming your looking to upgrade to the 3100... I wouldn't. In terms of specs the 3100 may look better on paper, but in terms of usability it's a step backwards. All the on camera controls on the D90 are replaced with menus on the 3100. There is no top LCD. You need to be looking at anything from the D7000 up.

comment Is it possible to see images on screen when shooting in continuous mode on a Nikon d5300?
What SD card are you using? If you're pootling along with a class 4 you might find upgrading to a class 10 will help.

The humble bridge camera you had before probably wasn't 24 megapixels.

comment Moving the Color Trim to Quick Control Screen
I can find no reference to 'color trim' in the manual or even with a cursory Google. Can you clarify?

Does flicking the read/write switch on the memory card prevent deletion? I feel like it should but I don't have my camera to hand to test it.
