  • For my money, but then I am a geographer/geologist by education, I would pick the trip that included the westernmost islands Fernandina and Isabela, as they are the most vulcanically active. I ...
  • You will probably lose a little sharpness,which you have to weigh against the convenience of not having to change lenses. In Yellowstone especially, you may have only a few moments to get a good ...
  • I had the same problem when I started out, and it has taken me the better part of 10 years to develop a modicum of 'eye'. On FreeDigitalPhotographyTutorials.com you can download an e-booklet ...
  • I just checked KEH. They have a 21mm LTD in X+ condition for sale for $382.
  • Remember that when buying a DSLR, you're really buying into a lens system. Camera bodies are outdated within a few years, but lenses may last for decades. I just checked Amazon.com for kits, and by ...
  • There are no compact cameras that take good pictures indoors in low light, particularly of moving subjects. Technology hasn't evolved that far yet. This is the kind of job that professionals spend ...
  • No. As far as I know, in Tanzania you ride in pop-up-top vehicles (as you can see in the background of one of my shots - all the vehicles I saw were of this type), and simply stand up in the car ...

  • I also think you did well under the circumstances. If it were me, I would have tried spot metering, like you do for a moon shot, in order not blow out the white part of the image against the dark ...
  • The usual trick (lifted from Bryan Peterson's 'Understanding Exposure') is to use the 'cloudy' setting in full sunlight, But the P7100 (I have no experience with the P7800) also gives you the ...
  • I was there in mid-July, and did not see any other Pentax, either. Kind of makes you feel special! Rodeo Nite in Cody, Wyoming Craters of the Moon, Idaho Virginia City, Montana Thought I'd post a ...
  • You can go to Imaging Resouce's comparometer and compare them for yourself. I usually compare images at ISO 1600 to get a sense of low-light capabilities.
  • I usually buy an adhesive screen protector from the German firm Folix/@Folix via Amazon. They have both clear, non-reflective and silvered screens. They cost something like £5 for a set of three.
