Thread: D3000

    Default D3000

    Hello Seniors..

    I just sorta took my dad's old Nikon D3000 and found out that there's fungus inside when I remove the lens. Other than the Nikon service centres, is there any other place I can bring it to get it serviced? Is it safe? The eyepiece cap is also falling apart. Yeah my dad has been a little careless with I guess

    Also, I would like to get a 50mm f1.8 prime lens for it, are there any recommendations on which one to get. I'm kinda lost on that...and if so where should I get one from?

    Thank you for patiently reading and answering my questions. Appreciate it, in advance

    You can try Fatigue (our resident repairman), Camera hospital or PG Camera.

    As for which 50mm f1.8 to get, I would recommend the Nikon native one, however since D3000 didn't have build in motor, I am not sure if the Nikon one will work (AF wise). You could go down to the shop and test.

    Secondly, look at our recommended stores, the following is a few that I can remember,

    1) John 3:16 (Funan)
    2) Click! (Funan)
    3) TK foto (Funan)
    4) SLR Revo (Funan)
    5) Orient Photo (Sim Lim Square)
    6) Cathay Photo (Penisula Singapore)
    7) MScolor (Ang Mo Kio)

    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    You will need the 50mm f1.8 G lens in order to have AF function on your D3000 OR get the 35mm f1.8 G DX, a good choice for DX cams.

    +1 for the AF-S 35mm 1.8G DX = cheap and good

    i have the 50mm and find that it's a little bit too "near" for normal use = party, gatherings, outings type of stuff ...
    Timelapse => 'coz I couldn't decide whether I liked photos or videos more
