I'm glad to be helpful but I'm not expert or professional in photography. Just shared what I have learnt so far.

I got my DSLR less then 6 months ago and before that I didn't know anything about it and didn't even thought I'ed get one.

Since then I'm spending my spare time in reading photography books, websites, videos, forums and etc, to get most of my DSLR. I like to understand products as much as possible and share to others. Be it a Camera, Computer, Mobile, Automobile, Power Tool or etc.

Here is the list of Youtube users those who helped me most:
Tony & Chelsea Northrup
Mike Browne
GregoryCazillo
Gordon Laing
Newtography
Rob Nunn
Benjamin Root Photography

For more discussions related to learning DSLR, we shall continue in "Learn photography with me" thread.

Btw; You have to register your camera and lens in Nikon Asia website. Not sure if it helps for warranty claims but atleast to verify the products. Here is the link to register and once you do, login here to view the registered products and also to add/register more products next time.

It's focus point.

It's use is to focus. The idea behind more focus point is to focus fast/accurate when the subject is moving fast. For most of the kind, center/single focus point should be good enough. For things like sports, more focus point is useful. Read your manual and see how you can use the focus point and practice it.

39 focus point is useful for selecting exact location to focus on the viewfinder if using single point AF ...if shooting a moving subject using multi point AF then AF point automatically selects the correct area of focus

Guys, I bought a cheap hand grip from amazon for Rs.200 and its not good. Its long screw plate covering battery door compartment and also locked display screen, everytime i have to unscrew little bit for removing battery.

From where I can buy hand grip with small screw plate ?

Until you buy a new one, flip open your LCD before attaching your hand grip. That way you can use your LCD the way you want, just that you can't put it back in it's space.

I have found two hand grip strap that have small mount. One is this and the other is this. Case Logic is good so you don't have to worry about quality. It costs high compared to unbranded straps but you get what you pay for. :)

The mount of the strap you bought looks flimsy to me so I don't take chances with that. Also I don't understand whats the use of that strap, we to hold the camera all the time in one hand and camera safety is still in our hand rather then the strap. :?

I use neck strap which is very comfortable for me and I can easily handle my camera. Holding the camera with right hand for long time causes pain so I use my left hand to carry the camera until my right hand is relaxed. Or if the lens attached is small, I leave the camera carried by the neck strap and let my both hands free.

How do you feel about hand grip strap?

[MENTION=322858]CRACING[/MENTION] I do exactly the same thing.. I put my neck strap ...and put it around neck..but while shooting or moving around to capture I wind up my neck strap around my hand tightly and hold it... it does not put lot of weight that way.
If you are holding very heavy lens like a big zoom lens..better to have a monopod to carry the weight.

I too donno the usage of handgrip....the free strap came with my DSLR is good enough to keep it safe for long...its almost 3 yrs :)

its a nice deal for new 35mm lens

standard means normal angle of view...like 18-55 is call wide angle or zoom lens or 55-300 is called standard telephoto lens
35mm and 50mm are called standard lens, 85mm is telephoto lens
