OK, utter newbie here. Just bought a s/h D3100 from Ebay. It looks mint, looked after at least. I am struggling to get my head around the manual and the YouTube vids I have watched.
I am puzzled about automatic settings. If I put the dial to auto, and the switch on the lens from M to A, when I press the shutter release halfway, should the lens move, whirr, click or something? I have yet to see whether the camera takes automatically set up pictures. I am thinking in the style of a point and click, no?
I am getting so many results from so many things I may or may not be doing I can't tell which pictures I used auto with or without the A on the lens or was it from M,A,S or P, and I certainly can't detect any movement or noise from the lens? I do seem to have a lot of blurred people with wonderfully crisp and sharp passing bin wagons in the background though...
(Apparently it is an AF lens, came as a kit with the camera)
Help would be great.
