Yeah I've been reading reviews, Nikon seems to be more universal with their lens. I just don't want to invest a lot in a camera I'm not going to be satisfied with. It makes me nervous!

Ahh! There we go. Thank you! I was using that button to switch with the back wheel :oops: This camera is definitely a lot heavier than my D5100. I think* I know where all my settings are now.:D

I personally had the Nikon D5100 first, & I actually loved it. I just upgraded to the Nikon D7000 mainly because it brought me from 11 focal points to 39. They're both great cameras & I use them with the 50 mm 1.8 lens. It is a really nice lens to have.

See I'm almost positive my dad has the d7000 and loves it too.

Thats so sweet, even though it sucks that he's sick. Are these shots SOOC or have you edited at all?

Thanks everyone.



I shoot RAW so I did play with it in LR before exporting it as a JPG.

I have a potentially dumb question.
Does shooting in RAW as opposed to jpg effect the quality of the image? I've never understood the difference.

All pictures are taken in RAW. If you're shooting in JPG, it just means your camera applies an edit and then discards all the other information and gives you the smaller JPG file that it made for you.



Basically keeping the file as a RAW file means you have control over all the information that is in that file and you can decide what you do to that file so that the finished picture is how you want it. It just gives you way way more control and way more opportunities in working with that file.



This probably explains it better than I can: http://digital-photography-school.com/raw-vs-jpeg
