  • 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 Camera bodies are outdated within a few years, but lenses may last for decades.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 ...
  • Hi, Far be it from me to try to dissuade someone from spending money on photo gear - a7DmkII + 100-400mm sounds like an amazing rig; however, for your planned safari project it might be overkill. ...
  • Hi, Before you return your kit, please note that the T5 is capable of the same image quality as the other camera bodies suggested, as it has the same 18MP image sensor they do. The differences lie ...
  • 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.
  • My own version of the superzoom/vacation lens genre is the Tamron/Pentax 18-250mm, which is commonly regarded as the best of the lot, as long as you stop it down to f8 for outdoor shooting. ...
  • Hi, I spent 3 fantastic weeks in Scotland in the summer of 2010, and had a lot of help in planning my itinerary from a couple of great websites. One was called 'Undiscovered Scotland', and the ...
  • Replied in First DSLR Kit
    In your situation I should probably prefer option #4, as long as the 18-135mm is the STM version; and if not, then not. I actually think the 18-135mm STM is good enough that you might consider it ...
  • I happen to own both an FZ200 and a K-30, and while the FZ200 is fun for casual shooting, the K-30 wins hands down for IQ. Plus for your intended use, low light and/or action shooting, you really ...
