I just purchased my very first DSLR. The D5100 recently went on sale at a really attactive price( i suppose due to 5200 announcement) and i though $550 was a perfect pricepoint for an entry level unit for our family.
I was wondering if anyone with familiarity with this camera could give me a few tips, as i'm clueless.
I only bought the base kit with the 18-55mm lens, came with a free Nikon bag and i added a 32GB Class 10 SDHC card.
What would be a good lens options for indoor, low light portrait style shots?
Are the 55-200 lens of more benefit to me, or are they only good for outdoor/sports? I am able to get this for $150 as its $100 off but i was unsure if it would provide useful.
Also , if anyone has this camera could share their Manual mode settings and it would be of great help. I have no clue what to tinker with.
I believe it is shooting at ISO 100 now, under what conditions do i raise the ISO level to improve my image quality? What is the top range of ISo that is usable on this camera before it introduces too much noise?
