  • Replied in Safety
    Similar to the story in CA, a fire fighting helicopter was grounded in BC due to drones in the area. It does appear that drone owners are doing anything they can to re-coup some of the cost and get ...
  • Replied in No zoom?
    You ever hear of "zooming with your feet"?  A term often bandied about by the primes crowd. Well, just like that, you can zoom in with your drone by putting it lower to the ground.  Genius eh?
  • I put it on my Surface Pro 3, and have a couple of annoying issues with it, but overall, I quite like it. I won't be putting it on my desktop because of lots of old software I run on it. My ...
  • I never even bother looking at US prices anymore for things I can buy in Canada. It  hasn't worked out favourably for a long time.
  • A Canadian store should be taxing you based on the province of destination so if you live in BC, you should pay BC taxes on something you buy from an Alberta store.
  • ...you don't rely on advertising revenue on your web sites, so why get hung up on statistics at all? Would you stop posting to your blog if your stats went down?
  • there are other things to buy.  A faster normal zoom for my D610, better lighting, a better system for portrait backgrounds, some extra memory cards...
  • I consider myself a serious person, so everything I do, I try to do to the best of my ability. I don't ever achieve greatness, but I should get bonus points for trying! I am however a great ...
  • Replied in No
    I have a backpack and take two DSLR bodies and five lenses on most trips out. Barely know its there when its on my back. Mind you, most of my trips out are quite short and easy going. Occasionally ...
  • Like for like, the Sigma is significantly cheaper. Mine is really sharp. :-|
  • yup, definitely sounds like you should be using a Mac. Nothing to complain about there.
  • I tentatively upgraded my Surface Pro 3 too this morning.  A very straight forward and seemingly pretty problem free upgrade. To be honest I was in two minds because I do use it a lot for my image ...
  • If you go the Nikon route, I can highly recommend the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. I get way more good images from this lens than any other. Not cheap, but still a lot cheaper than the Nikon version and ...
  • My downtown bar days are long gone.  The drug presence is enough to keep me away.  I do love taking photographs in nice concert venues though.  Photographing rehearsals gives more artistic freedom ...
  • What's stopping you from going into events? You can start out in a low pressure environments and do some good with non-profit organizations to build experience doing events... then when you feel ...
  • Yes, your country prefers you to buy there because its better for your local economy.
  • Indeed the Tokina 11-16 does work at 16mm with no significant vignetting, but it's a heavy lens to carry around just for one focal length! I couldn't afford to get a normal zoom at 2.8 when I ...
  • Don't worry, it's not antiquated.  I find it working just as well as the AF system on my D7100. In low light, I have no problems with the D610 AF system. On the action side, it has no trouble ...
  • Low light is when you get to the bowling alley and find out it's glow bowling, what are you to do?  ISO 12800, SS 1/10sec, f/2.8. It's not a good shot, but the camera focused.
  • They're different. Both have their advantages, but can't imagine the D7200 has the same quality as the D610. I've never used the D7200 but I find the D610 has significantly better IQ than the D7100 ...
