I am curious to how difficult it is to manual focus at farther focal lengths such as 200-300mm especially on my d3200. So in the end should I opt for a 55-200 AF with VR or challenge my skills and shoot manually with the sigma? Manual focus is an acquired skill. It's one that takes lots of practice. Ultimately some folks find it easier or harder to do than ...

I'm sure it would be a whole lot cheaper to just buy a stack of rechargeable NiMh AA batteries & carry spares with you. Li-ion still need recharging, even if they run better overall than NiMh. You can get Li-ion rechargeables in small forms like AA & AAA, but they are considerably more expensive. UK Amazon prices as example - AA NiMh, 16 for £25 (I ...

You need to turn the lens round ;) SWM Ø58 is Silent Wave Motor, 58mm filter thread size. (some of these reverse descriptions are far more complex - eg DX SWM VR ED IF Aspherical… etc etc.) In either case the lens's full 'title' is on the other face. In this case, SWM Ø58… …is revealed as an AF-S NIKKOR 50mm 1:1.4G That doesn't necessarily mean yours is ...

I took a quick look at the online manual, and it says: Images That Cannot Be Uploaded RAW images cannot be uploaded. AVI format movies (COOLPIX A300 movies) cannot be uploaded. For cameras with internal memory, images saved in the camera's internal memory cannot be uploaded depending on the camera. There's an additional online help guide which seems to ...

There are many potential variables, but one thing to understand is that the raw files do not have an inherent color cast... nor color for that matter. What you see in LR depends on the profile applied to the raw data. Is the same profile applied to both (e.g. adobe standard)? Even if the same profile is applied, it is most likely not the same... i.e. the ...

It seems likely that at least one of your light sources in the example image may be variable. That is, they don't output a constant intensity and color signature. Many types of artificial lighting flicker with the cycle of the alternating current that powers them. At the peak of the alternating current's sine wave they are brighter, bluer, and fuller ...

ISO stands for International Standards Origination of Geneva Switzerland. ISO establishes the criteria for measuring the sensitivity of photographic film to light. They assign a numerical value. High ISO settings translate to increased sensitivity. Digital cameras loosely follow the ISO guidelines. When the ISO setting is increased by you or your camera’s ...

The simplest explanation would be that auto mode is more likely to increase your ISO setting in order to keep exposure time as fast as possible. Compare these two images - both taken in low light. Camera was on a tripod & taken using a remote shutter release to try eliminate any shake. Camera set to Aperture preferred, focus was manual, so what changes ...

I have both the 35-70 and the 24-70. In there shared focal lengths they are comparable. There is quite a bit of missing range from 24-35 though.
