Hi, I am a complete newbie to this, so please bear with me.
I recently bought a Nikon D3100 and with the current shorter days, nighttime photography is something I've been trying. My problem is that when I take a longer exposure (in Manual), the camera takes almost as long as the shutter is open before it displays it on the LCD screen, making it impossible to use the camera until it has displayed the picture. This is fine if it's 5 seconds, but I've been playing with a remote and doing 1-5 minutes. I'm beginning to lose the will to live (as well as missed shots) while I wait. My friend has a D5100 and his pops them up almost instantly. Is this normal?
