Where you standing very close to him?
the camera comes with a 18 - 55 lens. at 55 it is ruffly a three time magnification of what you see with the human eye. you need turn the lens to the right when you are looking through the camera to have the image magnified. If that still doesnt get you close enough then you are going to want to buy another lens. or you can also crop the photo but how much you can crop depend on how big of a picture you want to print.

What lens can I use the the Nikon N6006 35 mm SLR Camera?


The Nikon N6006 will use just about any Nikon F-mount lens made in the past 55 years. About the only exceptions are some rare (and very expensive) fisheye lenses and the newer DX lenses specifically designed for digital cameras.

Took pictures without memory card Nikon D3000 camera, can I retrieve them?


No. Without a memory card the camera stores the last picture taken only so you can view it to verify proper operation. It overwrites the previous picture, and it disappears when you turn the camera off.

You NEED a memory card if you want to save the pictures. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works.

Best lens to add to d40 nikon to take baseball picture from dug out


So many people are browsing for the best D40 lens to take baseball picture i will give you some information about this topic i am not a professional photographer

if it's played on a full sized diamond you'll need 300mm if shooting from on the field/dugout. 200mm isn't long enough to shoot corner-to-corner. Realize though if it's not sunny at that time of day (i.e if it's overcast) you'll be shooting at 1600 to get needed shutter speeds at 5.6

IS is not necessary but USM is. THe 70-300 is the best choice for your needs as long as lighting is good.


hope this information will be help full for you

Is nikon a easy camera to learn how to use


Yes it is. On the dial button where you choose the shooting mode there are a few for absolute beginners like : portrait, landscape, macro, sport, ...
Just set your cam to one of those and you're ready to go. But on the same dial button you can access advanced modes where you have to set the parameters for taking a picture.
Any SLR camera will make better picture than a normal compact cam.
Check prices of canon, sony, samsung, panasonic and other competetive slr's.
My personal favourite is canon, but then again - it's all matter of choice ...

So in short - go for it!

What type of zoom lenses are suitable for nikkon D-60 digital camera


For Nikon Digital SLRs there is a special line of lenses. Almost any Nikon lens will work on the D60 body, but lenses not specifically designed for a Nikon Digital SLR will lack some features offered by the body. Nikon D series lenses, that are made for the Nikon Digital SLR series, are fully compatible. Although, any lens, AI type thru D type will work.

One of the snags with Digital SLRs is that lenses designed for film cameras have different focal point characteristics, and therefore altered focal length when used on a digital camera.

A film frame is 24mm x 36mm. The CCD in a digital SLR (Charge Coupled Device, changes light energy into electrical energy, which is then recorded as a digital image file inside the camera) is not that large. So the light is focusing on a smaller area surface. This changes the focal length of the lens.

There are other undesireable effects using film camera lenses with Digital SLRs. One of the desireable qualities of old lenses is the cost. The D60 is a great camera. You lose some features with older lenses, but you still get the same image quality.

I cannot tell you exactly what zoom lens to purchase, because it's like you asking what car you should buy. There are too many variables to consider. Most pros carry the famous Nikon D 80-200mm F 2.8 ED, which is a pro lens, with big weight, superb optics, and no finicky soft spots.

It's clean all the way through the range, at every aperature. But the cost is high, probably more than you paid for the D-60 body. But if it were me, I'd spend the money.
