    Re: Post Your D5500 Shots

    Hi everyone, I took 100 landscapes yesterday and NONE look in focus. D5500 Nikon AF-S 24-120mm f /3.5-5.6G.
    The camera was set AUTO and on a tripod.

    I set the D5500 to P this morning, selected AF-S and all was well!

    I have two pix to demonstrate but have been unable to upload them. Is there a limit on the size that can be uploaded?

    Lots of interesting and informative reading here, thanks.

    Did you happen to have the VR turned on? It's better to have that off when using a tripod. Also wondering why using an FX lens with DX camera? Not sure of your level of experience but with Auto focus, the camera will focus on the nearest object and that may not always be what you're going for in a landscape. How bright was the light that day? If it was overcast the Auto would perhaps have opened up your aperture quite a bit which would create a shallow depth of field. The more you learn to get yourself out of Auto, the more control you will have over the result.

    Hi Shakers, I don't understand your reference to an FX lens as opposed to a DX one.

    For many years I have used that actual lens with my D2X and the D2X before it without problems.

    VR was turned on but I take your point.

    Most of the shots were landscapes with only water as the foreground but others were zoomed to contain the whole of the front of a house for example. That represents pretty much a flat plane and the day was bright, just short of sunny.

    I understand you last comment well but this was the first foray with this camera and I was going to a new place that I may not visit again so I chose a tried and trusted lens and on Nikon's advice, I selected Auto.

    On the D2X there is no Auto. I am familiar with the nested command structure used in these cameras but this first time with the D5500, I really wanted to be safe! So much for that then.

    What's wrong with that? I used two D70 for ten years each with a different FX lens. The only issue, if you can even call it that, is to bear in mind that a DX sensor's reduced size compared to an FX sensor will affect the effective (not actual) focal length. But as we are talking about DSLRs, we can see what we are shooting - so what is the problem?

    Using a DX lens on an FX camera might be more problematic as the image will be cropped.

    @okulo @crb999 - did I say there was "something wrong" with it? did I say there was a "problem"? Or did I simply say I was "wondering why"? Perhaps there was a compatibility issue with a brand new DX camera and an older FX lens. IDK. I replied to the OP with what I hoped would be a useful response, some of which included additional questions. From what I'm seeing, I was the only who even tried to help out. I wasn't trying to start a debate with you, but it seems to me you were. Also it seems to me that this was the wrong thread for the OP to have posted his question (beginning at #61 to now) and he might have been better served with an original thread. @Don Kuykendall
