Hmm okay, thanks for the help I might more be detailed about my shooting technique; I only ever use manual or aperture, shooting RAW, that's all I ever have done, since I got my camera 2 years ago.. Coming from a Sony dslr was bliss, I hated that thing. With the nightscapes I often use the prime and when I don't shoot nightscapes I shoot portraits, using for my friends website and and my church's display stuff, which is slightly different anyway.The main annoyance the d3100 is the slight lack of control; I used to think its had loads of control, but not its a pain to have to dive into a menu to change things, they're less buttons for things, and that also takes up time..I shot sports at the Olympics, but that was rare and cause I wanted to have a memory, I'm not usually bothered about sports style shots.
...and the flash was suggested by my friend, clearly he knows nothing haha.
At the moment, I'm looking more at lenses, I probably won't change bodies for at least until September/October.. Mostly cause ill take the suggestion of seeing whether the d400 ever appears um I'd like a new body, and I'm thinking that maybe the d7100 is more for me, as a girl in my photography tutorial has the d5100, and I didn't really like it when she let me try it, probably cause its more menus than the d3100, although the screen had its benefits
Lens wise, the only two I like (in my set) are the 35mm and the 70-300mm.So, I've decided to concentrate on getting better lenses, so can I ask for suggestions?- thanks for the help everyone
Wow, thank you!In terms of lenses, the ones I've been looking at are24-85mm (i think that is the kit lens)50mm prime85mm macroHowever I'll definitely look more into your recommendations - I think my tripod is similar to the one you've suggested, I got it fairly cent,y, to replace my crappy one haha.
...As noted the 24mm f/1.4 Nikkor...great as is the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4.
This is a great discussion for me, .
i cannot understand the logic of FX glass on a DX body
In a perfect world ......
... In a perfect world those two bodies would use the same batteries and accept the same types of cards.
. D800 also a CF card but I really have no idea why I bought one #-o
. If I were to buy a D3, would that give me the same ability to crop as a D800? I don't think it would.
most D3's have had a hard life
