Hi guys, I was wondering how did you guys handle any old gear for upgrading? I still have my D3100 and after helping my friend get a D3400 I realized I haven't been keeping up with the trends and my body is quite outdated (lack of mic input, snapbridge etc.).

So I was wondering if you guys have any tips on reselling old DSLR bodies? How much should I expect, is it worth selling at all, who would be buying 2nd hand etc?

Tips? Do some market research on D3100, see their pricing and condition. Then decide whether it meets your expectation or not.

Worth selling or not? Depends on how you value it. Think, whether you rather keep it in your camera bag or exchange it for that $$$.

Who will buy? Those people who are looking to buy older generation cameras that still works at the fraction of their budget. (I bought all my lens and body used)

Lastly, a crucial question to ask yourself, do you actually need all those features? Whether its D3100 or D3400, they still take great pictures, well that depends on the person who press the shutter button though.

I totally agree with what bro JohnDiew0107 said thumbup.gif btw bro BenSow the D3100 is not really fetching a good price nowadays...KLDSLR.com is only selling it for RM 400++ for a used body...

I have a noob question to all sifus here, I am using the D7100 that runs on Nikon's EL15 battery but recently I have an issue with my 3rd party Viloso branded battery with my original MH-25 charger.

The orange charge LED is flickering instead of blinking slowly, any sifu here knows the reason? Is the battery KOed?

well if the charger can charge the EL15 fine, then the answer will very likely be 3rd party battery prob...if not then charger prob.
i will never use 3rd party batts anyway.

Haha bro you're here too ah biggrin.gif thanks for the info, time for new battery then cry.gif

Hi all,
do you know where can i repair my nikon d3100 in selangor/kl.
i was suspecting mirror is broken because when i capture a photo, half upper side in  photo turn black.
*
It happens regardless on what shutter speed you're using?

Not to question your knowledge but I've had similar incident where my photos appear half only as the shutter speed used was too fast...

FYI repair should be able to be done by Nikon Centre in KL thumbup.gif

Hello sifu and master

Anyway to fix the dust inside camera?
Since sometimes ago, i can see black dot and hair from the viewfinder, but it doesn't affect the quality of picture....

I try to clean it with a rocket blower... but failed

And recently i found those dust like getting more

Please help or any recommended shop in Penang Island can fix this?

D5300~~

TQ
*
I have the exact problem with my D5300 as well sad.gif it's the dust specks in the pentamirror so you can't really do anything without taking the camera apart, it will eventually come back even if you did take it apart and clean it...

So my advise is to live with it as it does not affect image quality sad.gif

As far as I know, DSLR cameras using pentamirror will normally have this issue sooner or later...

Hi guys,

What is the best Nikon model i can get with budget RM 5,000 max ?

Usage: office usage (meeting, ceremony, etc)

Thank you
*
With only office events usage, you don't need a RM 5000 budget IMHO getting a D5500 for about 3k with the lens is good enough smile.gif

Hi. Not sure if it's the right place to enquire... Anyone know where to get nikon original en-el14 battery?

At reasonable price

Thanks

Well it depends on your definition of reasonable smile.gif I think most shops are selling the original battery around RM 200+- if I am not mistaken..

If you don't mind a stupid question,

Is there any way I can trigger the shuttle for my D5100 using my phone? Like a wireless controller?

Or the only solution is to buy Nikon wireless remote?
*
D5100 has the IR remote function meaning you can get the remote for it smile.gif

I've seen item some lenses with the description "Gold box".

Can anyone explain what's the difference?
*
Just the source of the lens if not mistaken, gold box meaning it's a separately sold lens, and white box is kit lens that came with the body smile.gif

I don't think that make any difference to the lens at all smile.gif

This "FF" thing is overrated. "FF" doesn't make your photos magical.

If you keep thinking "FF" better than "APS-C" then sorry la, you're already setting a mental block for yourself.
*
Well said ! Agree with you on this smile.gif

I've seen a lot users praised FF for it's superiority, they did not look down/despise on cropped sensors but rather give the vibe that 'If you want better pics, then FF is the only way...'

IMHO not every camera enthusiast can afford FF bodies, let alone the FF f/2.8 lenses ohmy.gif

It's always about how the photog takes the photo rather than what is the gear being used thumbup.gif although gear plays a certain part in the photo creation process but having a A1 gear doens't guarantees A1 photos thumbsup.gif

Anyone has experience with Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 lens focus mechanism jammed?

I knocked my lens accidentally this morning and the focus now is very rough and doesn't AF to either side of the spectrum...
