Nikon Users Group

For people who own Nikon cameras and lenses. It doesn't matter if it's SLR or point and shoot. This group is for discussion on your experiences with having a Nikon camera.

Members: 1465
Latest Activity: Apr 11


Nikon has been renowned for high-quality optics and camera equipment since they were founded in 1919. The history of Nikon cameras began in 1948, the year that the Nikon I, the company's first camera was released. Today Nikon continues that legacy with an outstanding line of digital SLR (single lens reflex) cameras including the D90, D300, D800, D3 and the new D3x.

This group is a place for users of all Nikon digital SLR and point-and-shoot cameras to share their experiences, demonstrate techniques through example, and discuss Nikon's latest offerings.

Jonathan, I guess the answer to that is by using the Manual Focus. The bike moves fast and therefore, i think that you should learn how to use manual focus quickly. If the subject is far, I guess that wouldn't be a problem. But if it's near then that's why it gets fuzzy and fuzzier... Although I have never experienced this before but I hope this helps.

Hi All
I just upgraded from a D70 to a D90, and im in love already! Beautiful, easy camera!

hi guys. i have a quick question. when in burst mode i guess it doesn't focus anymore after the first shot. i was taking some dirt biking picture and the pictures just kept getting fuzzier and fuzzier. is there anyway around this? maybe another technique instead of burst mode to get the camera to focus on every shot and take pictures fast. thanks guys

Hello, every Nikon user.I`m very happy that to joint Nikon Group. I just bought Nikon D80 2 weeks ago. I`m a beginner, so still a lot to learn. By the way, does anyone can share your experience about how to capture sunset or need to use some equipment. Or any experience about photography. Many thanks.
