So, my boyfriend just purchased a D5200 for me for my birthday. I previously had a D3000, so I'm pretty familiar with the operating system and what not. I went ahead and fired up my camera and attached my new lens, which he also gave me as a birthday present (Bower 8mm f/3.5 fisheye).
I made sure I had the camera in manual, as this lens will not work on my camera on automatic. When I go to take a picture, it will take it, but when I go to review the picture, it is nothing but an all black screen. Is there something I'm missing here, like a step or something? I know it's a little bit more complicated of a camera, but it's not too much different from the D3000. I was wondering if anyone had any advice for me. Do you think it's just a glitch, or a faulty lens or camera? Or am I completely out to lunch with this thing?
Thanks in advance.
