Nikon 3100 won't take pictures using prime lens


Then do so. Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as with a lens without an aperture ring.

Focus out problem in canon 50d while using 24-70mm lens?


If by a "normal" lens, you mean a 35mm or 50mm fixed focal length - often called "prime" lens, that is to be expected. The additional and internal rotating optical elements all contribute to loss of clarity, color loss, and increased chromatic aberration that starts to become noticeable when compared to use of a prime lens. It's a trade off; less number of lenses to carry and lower cost when using wide angle zoom lenses as opposed to a prime lens for even just a few of the focal lengths offered by the wide angle zoom types.

You can minimize the unwanted effects by staying away from both the extreme wide angle and zoom focal lengths as well as the widest aperture settings. If you can stay 2 or 3 stops smaller from wide open, you can limit these destractions from your pictures. This is recommended advice for nearly every lens: Keep away from the extremes.

Good luck!

I am only a starter. I have a 15mm-105mm lens kit lens


That's a question only you can answer. Both are fine lenses. What kind of photography do you want to do? The 50mm is generally better for portraits, while the 35mm will be better for landscapes. Neither is very good for sports or wildlife.

Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens is not focusing.


I had the same problem with my ef 50mm 1.8. I used it on a cold day and broke off one of the internal gears. I used it for almost a year before I got the guts to take it apart and fix it. There are instructions online on how to take it apart, scary at first but not that hard overall. I used a small drop of crazy glue on the gear, put it all back together and just like new.

If the AF motor is still alive + spinning, this should be fixable without any replacement parts.

I going to be shooting an high school beauty pagaet,, what lens suggest i use.. any other points on what shutter setting i should use..


I would recommend a fast medium focal lengh prime for dimly lit scenes, such as a 50mm f/1.8 or 85mm f/1.8. The 50/1.8 is really cheap, still very sharp! The 85/1.8 is a fantastic lens for portraits.
For daylight scenes I would recommend a zoom lens, with a range from ~17mm to ~55mm.

In order to avoid motion blur by camera shake, always try to keep your shutter time to 1/focal lengh or shorter. That is, if you shoot with a 50mm lens, you should use a shutter time of 1/50s, or shorter.
