I’ve always loved photography, and have now taken the next step by signing up to an online course, and buying my first D-SLR, a Nikon D3300. I noticed your magazine in Sainsbury’s, and decided to give it a go. I spent an enjoyable hour reading through, and although I admit I was baffled by the technicalities and a bit intimidated at all the expensive kit, I was also completely inspired! I hope I can produce quality like some of the reader pics in the magazine! Can’t wait to get started. Acaycia Lewis, Nottingham, England Welcome to the world of Nikon photography, Acaycia. We try to have something for all levels of photographer in N-Photo, and our simpler tutorials are a good place to start, as they’ll take you step-by-step through making an image, and you’ll absorb information about the technical side of photography as you go. Tom’s tutorials on photographing shadows (page 54) and mirroring a skyline (page 60) are ideal. You don’t need fancy kit, though we do all love it! The important thing is to have fun with your new hobby, and to enjoy all the creative opportunities.
Very consumer build. I will wait to see how snappy the autofocus motor is at getting on target. I don’t expect much to be honest.
No mention of the 35mm f/1.8 – shame on you for not mentioning the best lens I own.
The Sigma 10-20mm is not on that list. Every DX photographer that I know has that lens.
I’m partial to my Nikkor 18-70mm lens, which takes extremely sharp photos. I also have the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D for portraits, and the Nikkor 55-200 mm with VR.
