  • Created discussions Problem with remote
    I recently bought a Vello RS-O1II remote for my Olympus OM-D E-M5 (which it supposedly supports) from B&H. I used it today for the first time, and it surprisingly only triggers AF - I didn't manage...
  • Replied in Go MILC
    (Mirrorless interchangeable-lens camera)Look around for a used Olympus 12mm f2.0 and any good Micro Four Thirds body … from the PEN E-PL5 to an OM-D or a GX7. It will give you the flexibility to...

    First and foremost, eliminate the Nikon D700 from the list. Not only does it not have AF in video, it doesn't have video at all. The only DSLR that has useful AF in video, is the Canon EOS 70D....
  • Replied in Canon G16
    Canon's PowerShot G16 is great at that, from my understanding. I haven't had any experience with it myself, but many professional photographers carry Canon PowerShot G-series cameras to get macro...

  • Great tips. I think that buying anything more expensive than an entry-level DSLR with kit lens will be a risk, and I'm not only talking about this case, but pretty much anyone who's looking to...
  • Get a DSLR with kit lens, and build your way from there. Nikon's D3300 is a fantastic choice. I would usually recommend getting a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera, but the great amount of...
  • Replied in A bit of history
    The quest for smaller-yet-just-as-capable cameras dates back a long time ago. Oskar Barnack was tired of the heavy cameras that were the norm at the time, and wanted to make something smaller. "He...

  • Replied in Why monopods?
    Not all tripods can be used as monopods. I know MeFOTO has one that folds into a monopod, but I'm not sure about any other one.
  • Replied in Standard zoom
    DxOMark recently published an unusually useful and helpful piece on recommended zoom lenses for the D3300 on a budget....
  • Replied in Rent
    If you're itching to try it out, why spend hundreds of dollars when you can simply rent one? Then you'll know if it's right for you, or if you like the NEX-6 better. You can even rent a higher end...
  • Replied in Buy lenses
    There are some great Sigma lenses now, that aren't all that expensive. You can get their 17-70mm f2.8-4 Contemporary lens for $499, then add any telephoto you want (like a Canon 70-300mm or...
  • Replied in Buy lenses
    You'd be much better off selling the two lenses you have and getting better ones, while staying with your current camera for the moment. Upgrade it later.
  • Replied in KelbyOne
    If you're going to get education, you may as we'll go straight to the best: KelbyOne, $199/year.
  • Replied in Tripod first
    I think a tripod is a must. If you want to shoot in the best light (around sunrise and sunset), you'll end up taking exposures that are too long for handholding. If you plan on shooting only during...
  • Replied in Why switch?
    Why don't you stay with Canon? Nikon has advantages, there's no doubt about that, but Canon has some excellent cameras, too, and you already have some lenses for it, so you don't have to start from...
  • Are you absolutely sure that a DSLR is what you want? There are fantastic mirrorless cameras, both with a fixed lens and with interchangeable lenses, that will do the job you need just as well,...
