What is the difference between 3200 and Hi1 setting on the ISO?

I don't have your camera but I'm guessing your manual should tell you what ISO Hi1 equates to.

It is unfortunate that so many people switch from a point and shoot to a dslr thinking they will be able to shoot anything much better than before.

Without the lens, your at square one.

I do understand that you need the equiptment to get the better shots. I was under no impression that simply getting a DSLR over a point and shoot would make all the difference. I am just a beginner so I was simply looking to get a few beginning pointers. With what people have been telling me I have seen some improvements already. I may now feel comfortable spending the money to get the more advanced lenses, but I want to get an idea of what I was doing before I really invested! Thank you to everyone that has been so helpful!As in anything you have to start at the beginning and being able to ask what some people may think are "stupid questions" is helpful!!

Your in a good place. This forum abounds with helpful and knowledgeable people from a variety of photo interests. I have learned a lot.

PS: There are no stupid questions.

PS 2: The more pictures you take, the luckier you will get.

Hi Kelly. I have the same camera as you. As a beginner (at least I am) I wish I would've known about this site before I bought my camera. We have a decent camera. The only thing I wish I would have known about sooner is lenses. It seems you are finding out what I am finding out. If you want to be able to get the results you want, you're going to have to buy some better glass. And...lenses are pretty ridiculous in price. I wish I would have just bought the camera body and then bought the lenses that would get me the results I am after.

One thing that I have learned though is this..... This site is full of great people who have lots of information. Most on here are very willing to help "us" to get us on the right track.

So, Welcome to the site!

The Nikon D5000 is a very competent camera when you learn to use it. More than decent.
About lenses, it doesn´t have to be extremely expensive. It depends on the demands. I have the 35mm f1,8 which is a great lens for low price. And then I have the Nikon 18-70 which also is a great lens. And the best lens I have and with which I shot some sports and action is the Nikon 70-300VR lens. But for indoor sports it´s a bit harder. You´ll need to have faster lenses there, but try to find some used ones. You could get them at reasonable prices. Or learn how to reduce noice with a program, and raise the ISO as much as needed.

Best regards/Daniel

I've been using Noiseware for the last 6 years and have been very happy with it.
