So, what's wrong with listing the info? If someone does not have an interest in it, don't read it. Some of us starting out learn from seeing the info with the posted photo.
By eye shade, I assume you are looking for a viewfinder or articulating screen eye shade; not a lens hood. Correct?
Tell me about it! I took a course in photoshop cc. Instructor made things needlessly complicated; plus it was capable of doing much more than I needed. Trying to learn lightroom. As a backup, using nikon vnx2 for post processing.. Will keep on trying to learn lightroom.
I don't know; there has to be an easier way. I can get around a computer usually where I need to go; but far from really knowledgeable. I took a six week course (two hours each Monday) for Photoshop CC at Univ. of Tx informal classes network. Probably the instructor did not do a good job teaching. 20 people started the class; 11 finished. By the last class, at least a 3rd of the remaining 11 were checking their e-mail and another 3rd just sitting there as they were lost. The instructor had been a professional photographer for over 40 years. I point this out as, although the majority of people on UHH are really trying to be helpful, there are always a few who make you feel dumb with their remarks rather than understand that some of us are just starting out in photography and are not "pros" and/or "experts". ......"take a better picture" is not helpful, and as an answer adds nothing of use to the person asking the question. As a professor once said: "The only dumb question is the one you don't ask". So I will and hope others continue to asks questions on which we would like imput.
Hm; makes since. We check fruit and vegetables by touch before we buy.
Was using nikon bridge cameras until about 3 months ago; then got the d5500 with a Tamron 18-270. Decided to get the d5200 as a back-up with an 18-55 vr and a 55-200 vr as a back up. Don't know what I will do about the bridge cameras.
As far as pictures, the 5200 takes good pictures; the yellow cast does not come thru on the pictures. So, I'm guessing it may be the two model difference between the 5200 and the 5500 concerning the shutter noise, as one that replied earlier said.
I have gotten a lot of good info thru the forum. Great group of people. Thanks.
Thanks for the responses. I feel better about the camera now. Since I just got it, I haven't really given it a true workout; plan to start on that this weekend. This is a great forum; you can always depend on getting good and experienced info.
I just bought a nikon d5200 on ebay with a shutter count of about 33,000. I noticed that the shutter is noisier that on my nikon d5500. Is this a normal difference between the d5200 and the d5500? Pictures turn out fine. Also, notice indoors a kind of a faint yellowish tint to the view either live view or not; however, again the pictures come out fine. Should I have any concerns about these issues? Thanks to UHHer's for commentary on these issues.
Wow. Thanks everyone for responding. Now I have to do some studying and thinking.
Someone at the local camera store told me those series E lenses would work on manual mode with current Nikons. I have wondered, too as I have the Nikon EM also as well as the FE or FM (can't remember which as they have been in storage many years). I really need to get them out as I had a number of lenses (wide angle, telephoto + 2x teleconverter, and prime lenses). Used them when I was horse camping in the Rockies and Tetons, etc. Hope someone more knowledgeable then me will respond. If they would work, I might try them on one of my D5XXX series cameras.
I am interested on doing a little close-up photography. Flora and insects, etc. Don't know if I will be interested in it enough to go further so I am looking for an inexpensive way of trying it out. Extension tube, close-up lens, etc. Any ideas from fellow UHHer's? Thanks.
I'd like to hear how it works out on the trail.
Good luck on the trip. Wife and I were out at the Kerrville and Leakey area for several days last week. Didn't make it to Lost Maples, but did make Garner SP. A few colors, but not as much as I had hoped. There is a blog on the Lost Maples website with photos posted about once a week during the fall concerning foliage and the changing colors. This years blog said the weather caused the trees to not have as much color as hoped. Said Lost Maples Trail had the best colors. Looking forward to seeing your photos.
Second photo well done. (Be patient; easier said than done). There are some excellent books out there; check out some by Bryan Peterson. Wish you good luck on your photographic endeavors.
Welcome, Karen. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
