I am a puertorican currently living in Miami. I work in the auto service industry as a service manager for Mercedes Benz. Looking for a hobby is how I got to this website. I took advantage of the Nikon D5600 combo at my local BJs and have been trying to learn how to improve my pictures.

I’m hoping to get lots of tips from this website!! Thank you for existing!!

Welcome from Orlando. Porsche guy here LOL.

Look forward to seeing some of your images.

I have just deleted four No Robo apps. because I'm still getting a dozen or so a day. Anyone having better success in blocking the ROBO's?

If you use AT&T they offer an app called Call Protect. They block calls at their server. You can also block calls. Amazing how many kick calls I get from my area cold.

Here's what I took on a safari (non hunting) to Tanzania: A Canon SL1 with a Tamron 18-400 lens (APSc) and it worked extremely well. I have also taken it to Israel and Jordan and a lot of places in between. The SL1 is light and counterbalances the 18-400 lens which was a bit on the heavy side. Look at the images below. I wouldn't buy a longer lens because of its bulk. If you shoot JPEG + RAW you'll have plenty of material to work with. The SL1 handles both formats.

I have since bought an SL2 from Canon, not because it is a whiz-bang better camera but because of its Wi-Fi capabilities which allowed me to transfer the photos I want to post on line while in the field. BH Photo Video is the place to go for best price and service. I've been dealing with them for almost 40 years.

Thanks JCCash- The Nikon 200-500mm is a particularly impressive lens. Great shot of the bird above!- v. sharp!
Do you not find it a burden weight wise etc,. when travelling around?? Do you use a tripod when travelling with it or do use it a lot hand held?

Your going on a safari so you will be sitting. I do both. Handheld and monopod.

I took a D500 and 200-500 Lens. I let my daughter use our Sony a600 with the 5-210 Lens. First image with 200-500 and second with the Sony a600.

Can 'JAG's' Harm & Mac Help the 'NCIS: LA' Team in the Season 10 Finale? David James Elliott & Catherine Bell Return in their JAG Roles

I met David James Elliott at tge BMW Proam golf tournament a few years ago. I asked why did you not get married to Mac. He said the writers wrote that out. It would be nice to see them on NCIS LA.

Yes, but don’t ask permission to upgrade your camera. She will always say NO. just do it and get forgiveness later.

I have been a photographer for more decades than I care to admit, in retirement it has become a valuable outlet for me. I am far from an expert, but I am constantly learning and loving the art more everyday. I find myself seeing the small things I often overlooked.

Welcome, if you live near Orlando or Sanford, consider attending one of their camera club meetings:

Controlling much??? Who the hell are you to even think for a nano second that you have the power to tell someone to think the way you do? No matter what your reasons, he has already purchased the camera. Your comment was not only rude but stupid. I am assuming here that you are thinking he should have purchased something like a newer mirrorless camera, something along those lines anyway.

I have been purchasing cameras since I was about 13 years old. New cameras have come and gone. The mirrorless cameras are the hot new topic right now but I will never buy one. You and others can tell me they are better but nobody has ever shown they take better photographs. Yes, they may be lighter in weight but even at 73 I am not bothered by the weight. Many other people are not bothered by the weight either. I love DSLR's and have no desire to go to something different. You may like some newer system but you people that continue telling us that mirrorless is the way to go are basically just spouting your own desires. You like it then you continue buying it. But to tell us it is better in any way is a bit presumptuous in every sense of the word.

My main problem with your last sentence is that the OP had already purchased the D750. He did not ask for advice on what camera to purchase. If he had then your comment might have been appropriate. But since he already has the camera it is totally rude for you to, now, bring up dying technology. That is my point. Why make him feel bad that he did not buy something you like, something you would have purchased you. He didn't ask you for your opinion on the camera, just asked for some tips on operating the camera he already purchased. If you can't understand how that is rude then I have absolutely no advice for you. You should have listened to your parents about using common sense and treating people with respect.

Damn, another nice topic gone south.

My advice which I said before is to go to YouTube and watch videos on D750.

There are so many.

I purchased a new Nikon D750 camera about three weeks ago I love it but am having a hard time learning everything. I have never owned a DSLR camera. I have only owned a Nikon point and shoot. The learning curve is somewhat overwhelming. I can’t wait till I feel completely comfortable with the D750. I do absolutely love the camera just need to get out there and shoot and not be so intimidated.

Here is a link reviewing the D750. There are many others as well on YouTube. Very nice camera. Congratulations:

That's where my brother-in-law lives.....
However, in Florida, where there's water, there is a possibility of these creatures.

Try Viera Wetlands.
