Most cameras have color profile settings that can be changed. On Nikon cameras, they are called Picture Controls. See pages 155-163 of the D5600 User Manual for details. Presets include: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape, and Flat. You can further customize: Sharpening, Clarity, Contrast, Brightness, Saturation, and Hue. As for the ...

There are some differences due to the way each camera processed each image. Nikon's 'Standard' Picture Control is more neutral, while Canon's 'Standard' Picture Style is punched up with saturation, contrast, and sharpening. The closest Nikon equivalent of the Canon 'Standard' Picture Style is 'Vivid'. The Canon Picture Style closest to Nikon's 'Standard' is ...

Turns out you have to set the cameras time zone and time.

The focusing system used by the camera when you are using the viewfinder is an independent system from the focusing system used when you are using Live View. Each system is designed and operates completely separately from the other. One works when the mirror is flipped down and the imaging sensor is "blind". The other works when the mirror is flipped up and ...

When you focus using the focus points visible in the optical viewfinder, you are using phase-detect autofocus (PDAF). The sensors for are located on a secondary sensor that is not part of the imaging sensor, which receives light reflected off the mirror while it is down. These focusing points are fixed in location and cannot be moved (although they are ...

I am puzzled. How to decide which MM lens to use in which situation? I usually want to shoot landscapes and wildlife. Which lens is suitable for these specifically? Most people associate wide angle shots with landscape photography. However, here's a whole tip article on using a telephoto for landscape. Most people associate telephoto shots with wildlife. ...

Try removing the battery and replace. Could be the contacts in the battery compartment are corroded -- burnish using a pencil eraser polishing both top and bottom contacts.

Like the others said, digital cameras have image editing software that's like a little part of photoshop and are automatically editing pictures. Each camera has different versions of photoshop software and different settings in that software so that's why the images they produce are different. The example below is the same image with some changes to levels,...

You are using the contrast based AF system and it is quite different from the phase based AF system used otherwise. It appears you simply do not understand it or have it set up appropriately. There is no AF-C when in live View. There is AF-F with a few options. And when AF-F is used autofocus is continuous until you press the shutter button or AF-on button....

Consider leaving it alone until you have more time to work on it. The last thing you need is to make the camera inoperable, since you need it tomorrow. If this is a button you use frequently, try to remap it for now. You can also try putting some tape over it to hold it in place temporarily. I can't tell what's exposed in the image you've attached. The ...

Not totally unexpected.. with the viewfinder the camera uses phase detection focus using specialized sensors. In liveview mode, the AF sensors aren't usable (they only see the light when the mirror is down) and the camera uses contrast detection focus which is slower[*] and doesn't work too well in low light or if the subject lacks contrast (at least on ...

With regards to the body, there is no question: the D7500 is far better suited to fast action photography. The D500 would be even better, but is perhaps outside your price envelope. The choice of lens, as you've surmised through good research, is less clear. All of your concerns are valid. Personally, I would lean toward the 80-200mm. The 70-300mm is too ...
