You could have searched on YouTube for: "How to use my DSLR" and get a better explanation.Read the manual, learn what each mode does then go out there and try out different changes in the different modes.Or better yet, watch a youtube video. C'mon.
>>3854936So here’s the problem, I did read the manual and I watched countless YouTube videos on how to use aperture priority, shutter priority, and use other settings specific to the camera.The problem is, I don’t know what settings to actually use....I feel like I was put into the cockpit of an Apache helicopter and told to flyShutter priority is completely over my head. Aperture priority I understand more, but I’m never sure of which aperture to pick, other than “open it all the way when it’s dark” and that’s not even getting into specific things on the camera like the different focus modes etc...and THATS not even getting into the fact I’m not sure where I’d even start when it comes to editing a raw fileThis shit is too complicated tbqh. I can see why people buy Fuji cameras and just shoot in jpg. I need a manual or book that breaks this down for my midwit IQ so I can “get” it

>>3854941I vaguely understand it but it hasn’t “clicked” for me in terms of putting it into practice. I get how iso works, if you have a lot of light you don’t need high iso, I get how aperture works, the smaller the number the more light goes in..and I also get shutter speed, longer expose let’s more light inI get all of this “theoretically” but I have a tough time putting it into “practice” to the point where I can just go out and take some damn photosAlso I greatly appreciate the offer and would take you up on it but I’m tied up with family right now, should I just buy photography for dummies?
>>3854941He doesn't need to know how the exposure triangle works if he uses exposure compensation and one of the modes.OP, you open the aperture as you see fit, and compensate with ISO or shutter speed. You want thin DoF? Open up your lens, you want to freeze the moment? Set your aperture to auto and switch your shutter speed to something above 1/60, let your ISO be adjusted by the camera.Again, trying out things is the best way to go about this, try using only Aperture priority for a while and leaving the rest in auto, then go into shutter priority and leave the other stuff in auto, experiment and you'll start to understand how it all comes together.Purpose of course matters, buy
shoot in mlearn from your mistakes
>>3854955Why would I want to use shutter priority over aperture priority? I can understand why you’d want to pick your own aperture and have the camera compensate but not why you’d want to make shutter a priority
>>3854950that's an ok start so generally we try and keep our ISO as low as possible right? so why don't we shoot at ISO 100 all the time? well things in our environemnt and our subject will give us constraints with shutter speed and aperture Here's an example: say im shooting a concert, and I want to make sure I'm freezing motion, so I don't get any motion blur. I need to use a high shutter speed, somewhere around 1/500th of a second. Im shooting with an 85mm f1.8 prime. Now I'm pretty much gonna keep my shutter speed as is, but to make sure I get more light in, I'm gonna open up my aperture. I probably wont shoot wide open at f1.8 because the depth of field will be a bit too shallow, so I stop down to f2.8. Now, I point my camera at the stage and the lightmeter in the viewfinder is telling me I'm underexposed by about 5 stops, and my ISO is set at 100 - because my shutter speed and aperture are set, I'll raise my ISO 5 stops to 3200 - and boom, I've properly exposed my photo. Don't just think about it in terms of amount of light, but also understand what else shutter speed and aperture do for you. >>3854958use shutter priority if you care about controlling motion blur, and want your camera to compensate differences in exposure by changing the aperture for youuse aperture priority if you care about controlling depth of field and want your camera to compensate differences in exposure by changing the aperture for you You can also shoot in manual mode, control both aperture and shutter speed, and turn on auto ISO and let the camera change the ISO to expose the image for the shutter and aperture settings you've selected.

>>3854956This. There is no better way to learn about DoF/shutter/ISO than to practice in manual.Bonus : you don't even have to go out just to test your settings
>>3854958Maybe Auto settings are giving you blurry pics and you don't care going overboard with ISO.Maybe you want to freeze the moment even more (someone running, a car, a bike, a bird) and even at 1/120, they still come out slightly blurry.Cameras normally have a max iso setting, don't limit it to 1600 or 3200, let it go to the max while you learn.
>>3854976> let it go to the max while you learnWhat are the benefits of this? I thought limiting iso in camera settings was good even if you’re new
>>3855007Generally yes it's best to keep ISO low but getting the right exposure is better than not getting it, or getting a blurry pic when you didn't intend to get one.If your vision was to capture a flying bird or a running dog, i think it's acceptable to have a grainy pic VS a blurry one.
>>3855011Oh I see. Also, low ISO makes your picture blurry? I thought it would just make it not have enough light
>>3855024Low ISO doesn't make your image blurry>>3854955This guy saying you don't need to know the exposure triangle is objectively wrong.Say you're trying to take a photo of a fast moving bird. You want to use a high shutter speed to freeze the motion of the bird (no blurriness), so you set your shutter speed to 1/500. Say the lens your using has a min aperture of f5.6, so you're probably not going to change that. Your camera is telling you your image will be underexposed, so you raise your ISO - this introduces more noise, or 'grain' into your image but assuming you get the bird in focus you have an image of a bird, frozen in flight, with some grain. Now, in this situation, if you wanted to use a lower ISO, your image would come out too dark - so you lower the shutters speed. Less grain, but if the bird is moving fast, the wings might be blurry, etc. So low ISO doesn't introduce blur on it's own, but using a lower shutter speed will. Does it make a bit more sense, how these settings relate to one another?
>>3855024Low iso makes it blurry in the sense that you'll be lacking enough light for a proper exposure, given the subject being something moving.>>3855038That's how I learned it, to this day I still haven't cared to learn how the exposure triangle works, yet I shoot in manual mode. It's stupidly complex IMO.
>>3855043>stupidly complex It's objectively not, it's literally just the basics of how A/S/ISO work together to expose your photoOP is asking how to use his camera, having a DSLR with full manual control lends itself to knowing how you expose a photo. If OP had a point and shoot camera then of course knowing the exposure triangle doesn't matter.
>>3855058Or he could take it bite sized and learn to use each of the other modes, i went that way instead of going balls deep into manual mode.
>>3854939just try it and learn as you goit's not hard
>>3854935I shoot in A the vast majority of the time.Aperture is the top priority for most pics I take.This together with exposure compensation are the only two dials I really need.Set a reasonable upper limit for Auto ISO and let it do its thing. You have to test your sensor to determine what "reasonable" is in your camera.
>>3855268I also do this, ISO 6400, 1/60 minimum shutter speed and off i go with the aperture.
>>3854935the nikkor 50 1.8 is dog shit. consider one of the sigma art or tamon stablised primes. you will see a big improvement. and unlike more modern cameras, you really need to shoot raw for the d700. its jpeg processing is terrible
>>3855368>consider a lens 3x heavier, costs as thrice and is a shit-tier performer in B&WMight as well kill yourself while you go at it shilling plastic mount shit
>>3855368Doesn't matter is not Sigma Art quality, it's a novice learning tool.
>>3854935Throw it away and buy a film camera, it will force the retardness out of you

He's just one of those assholes who think that a slightly lower score in an MTF chart that will never show up in real world photos makes a lens that's widely regarded as amazing "dog shit".

Try actually shooting with say a tamron 45 1.8 or sigma 50 1.4 art after using an ancient 50 1.8 and you'll see the d700 can turn out very competitive shots to modern full frame cameras. The 50 1.8 only has its cheap price and light weight going for it and if you care about weight while using a d700 you are a moron.

>>3855649read again, dickwad
>>3855368The Nikkor 50mm 1.8G is a very good, very sharp lens for the price. While the Sigma Art is sharper wide-open, there's no way the Nikkor is not out-resolving a D700's sensor at the middle apertures (f/4, f/5.6 etc). Your advice is only remotely applicable if you want to go around shooting at f/1.8 all day.
>>3855702Nah poor fags really over rate that lens and never try something good. Try it some time. I have. The nikkor can't compete.
>>3855702>out resolvingjfc op don't listen to this type of garbage
>>3855416Oh no, yes, you're right. How stupid am I to think that letting all settings automatic and just press a button isn't 'photography'? the camera of course knows exactly what my goals are. Damn I'm such a stupid prick and you're so smart.Imagine didn't minding ISO, Shutter speed and diaphragm because the camera knows it all. Damn I love when I'm shooting at day light and my camera knows exactly that I want that pop-up flash just triggering at my subject flower in the garden or my cat sleeping at cool sunbeam spot.
>>3855755Imagine not using auto settings because a machine can't possibly nail the pic you want for most situations.
>>3855762Oh yes, you're so right!!! Damn what an amazing piece of brain do you have! So intelligent.
>>3855453>Try actually shooting with say a tamron 45 1.8 or sigma 50 1.4 art after using an ancient 50 1.8 and you'll see the d700 can turn out very competitive shots to modern full frame cameras50mm designs reached a point of diminishing returns decades ago. Is a $400 lens going to give you better results than a $100 lens? Yeah, probably. Are the results gonna be noticeable in photos of things other than test charts, viewed at less than 100%? Nah, probably not. With any normal-angle prime out there, the limiting factor in image quality is going to be the photographer, not the gear. There are no bad 50mm lenses, and certainly none are "dog shit". If you think so, my guess is that you don't actually take any photos and instead base all of your opinions on gear on looking at test images and MTF charts.Can you post some actual pictures you've taken with one of the alternative normal lenses you're recommending?
>>3855764Amiright? These dumb computahs, we should have stayed in film baka
Use only Manual mode, figure it out. It's not too hard, but don't be tough on yourself. Like, it's digital, if you make a mistake, just take another picture. There's a screen on the back to check if you did it right! The D700 screen is sort of tough to gauge in sunlight though, so turn on the histogram. You don't want a crunched histogram, with all the data on the far left (too dark) or far right (too bright), but a nice even bulge toward the middle. Exceptions to this of course, but it's a good rule of thumb.As for basic exposure, if you're outside you can use the Sunny 16 rule, which is your shutter speed should equal the ISO you're using, with the aperture at f/16. From there you can do equivalent exposures. So at ISO 200, set to 1/200s @ f/16. Or 1/400s @ f/11. Or 1/800 @ f/8. Etc etc. If it's a cloudy or overcast day, then you can open up the aperture another stop or two. Again, this isn't film, so it doesn't cost you anything to make mistakes. Just shoot until you get images you're happy with! And have fun, photography is meant to be joyful, not stressful. Good luck and happy image-making!
>>3854935It just takes time and practice.
>>3855755It's counter-intuitive but for some daylight shots the flash actually does help.
>>3855779Yes, you're totally right. The computer knows everything. >>3855832Damn, another brain in the thread. BLESSED.People on this thread must blessed to have access to such knowledge.
>>3855849Posting memes!!! hahahaha that's very funny! Post more, anon! You're truly improving the board. Memes and knowledge? amazing!
>>3855755>How stupid am I to think that letting all settings automatic and just press a button isn't 'photography'?Pretty stupid!Photography is about things like light, color, composition, timing, perspective, angles, and a million other things. Yes, it’s also about exposure, but if you’re mostly just lining up the needle in the viewfinder to what the computer suggests anyway, you’re going to a lot of effort you don’t need to. I shoot in a semi-auto mode most of the time (I don’t usually care about my shutter speed beyond making sure it’s “fast enough”; I don’t usually care about my ISO; aperture actually affects my final image in ways that I’d like to micromanage). I switch to full manual if I need something specific, and it’s definitely a good idea to know how to manually dial in your settings when you do need to, but for the most part, I’m happy to work with the auto modes. If you think your main contribution to a photo is something that could be adequately automated by a little piece of 1970s-era technology, you’re probably a pretty shitty photographer.
>>3855869Oh no, you totally blew my mind with such well written argument about how I am a bad photographer. An absolute professional I can see.
Op did you learn something
>>3855771>Are the results gonna be noticeable in photos of things other than test charts, viewed at less than 100%? Nah, probably not.Wrong. I have tried all these lenses and more. The new Tamron and Sigma stuff blows old Nikkor away. Try using them back to back on whatever camera you are using and you will quickly understand.
>>3855963Dude fuck off with gearfagging OP doesn't fucking need a new lens.
>>3855963So, post some example photos?
>>3855963>blows old Nikkor awayIn RAW the Nikkor has the advantage of having softer bokeh, the Tamron has better contrast usually and the Sigma is sharp as a razor but the bokeh is nervous at times and the colors are colder.OP picked a camera above his league and you want him to use a brick of a lens with the Sigma, let him use the Nikkor D and even fix the images as an exercise in post-process.

>>3855963>>3855981This.If the OP doesn't even understand how to operate his camera in the first place, do you really think a marginally better piece of glass is going to make his underexposed, shittily composed photo look any better?
>>3854939Download a D3x00 manual, I'm pretty sure they explain the basics in those. But aperture controls depth of field and shutter blurs or freezes motion. ISO allows you to use your preferred aperture and shutter speed. A mode lets you pick an aperture and automatically selects a shutter speed to match your exposure compensation. S mode lets you pick a speed and adjusts the aperture to get you an exposure value depending on what you selected on exposure compensation. You may leave the ISO at automatic or fix it. Higher ISO allows you to take pictures when the shutter is getting too slow or the aperture too narrow because of constraints (for example lenses can only open up so much, and if you're handholding or your subject is moving you may need to shoot with a faster shutter). Just don't shoot at super high shutter speed and then crank up the ISO unless you want low dynamic range and lots of noise.

>>3858253It's always been popular among people who knew what's up.As a casual shooter, even though I'd like it to have some extra features that modern cameras have it does have all the basics already, a near-perfect ergonomics (I would've liked the ISO button to be near the shutter tho), the AF focus has never failed me (except for the times I made a mistake myself), and, of course, the colours from the sensor are gorgeous, with some comfy ccd feel to them somehow. Raws are very much workable and the resolution is high enough for reasonable-sized prints. Finally, for sports, you have a 6 fps ratatata burst.Honestly I could see myself upgrading to something like a d850 but does the price difference make it worth it for a poorfag amateur when they've lenses to invest in anyway? Meanwhile for many years nikon's low-end ff dslrs (600, 610, df) were literally downgrades in everything except megapickles. D750 was probably the first one that wasn't an embarrassment (and if one counts the amount of recalls for it, it actually is too). Oh and another nice thing about it being an old and cheap camera is that you're not afraid to risk take it with you to environments you wouldn't bring a shiny new one to — and actually get the shots. It's rugged enough to survive a lot of punishment anyway.

Third world country shooters are not lucky at all in that regard, and finding another means importing again.If they weren't gearfags they would shoot a decent PnS, except those are also rare other than the bottom of the barrel shit.

>>3858342>Those who import >Third world country shooters are not lucky at all in that regard, and finding another means importing again.I'm not exactly from the first world myself and haven't heard about importing pains at all. They sell used d700s here aplenty, the prices being circa $300 for 100k, <$500 for 10k, opened mint for $700ish. Add a 24-85 for $200 and you gor yourself an everyday combo. I fancy it with a 80-200 though, which sells for <$400 used these days. Thus, an ok setup can be made for ~$1100.>literally walking around with used car money in their handsWell, kind of, but the offers one gets for that much money are time bombs on wheels. If your camera breaks down or is stolen, you've now poorer and have your mood ruined. If your car falls apart (almost happened to a friend of mine, axle started detaching while on a highway) you have anything from a bad day and towing fees to a problem at work to being stranded in the middle of nowhere at -30C to dying in a fireball. Everyone I know doesn't buy anything below at least $8k, with a low odometer or new. Are you from NA by chance? The car culture there seems so different, with everyone getting their licenses asap, own cars at 18 and so on, whereas my best friend is 30, works a well-paying job, has had the license for over a decade but is yet to get a car, granted we live in a city with a decent public transport infrastructure. I don't know much about cars, but having visited Craigslist there's some good looking ones, though the mileage on everything is nuts. Still, a 2003 Civic for $1k with 77k miles seems like a decent deal. Found one for twice the price with twice the mileage here, and unlike dslrs cars are definitely a doozy to import.Also found this:>Car needs new Transmission>When cold it can drive a few yards but after it warms nothing happens.
