  • +1 to what Soufiej said. I too bought on price.  I paid US$225 for the SX50 when the SX60 was around US$500 (I think) at the time.  I didn't need any perceived improvements or could justify the ...
  • The 300 dpi has nothing to do with the camera.  This is the resolution of the printer.  What they are saying is the print must be done at 300 dots-per-inch (dpi). I am not sure what you mean by the ...
  • Comparing a phone camera and an S110 is comparing two different tools. I think of a phone camera like a Swiss Army knife. It is always in my pocket and better than having nothing. In good lighting ...
  • When I started photography, I was still in High School and we still used film.  So every bad photo could be a missed opportunity or a costly mistake.  I carried a small notepad and noted down the ...
  • You may find a better response if you posted this in the PC Talk section instead of here in the Open Talk.
  • I don't know the prices in Britain (I think you are from there), so I'm assuming that everything on your list fits into your £700 budget. The 700D is an excellent camera and the kit 18-55mm lens is ...
  • TeeJay, I apologize - you are correct and I was looking at the wrong lens.  I will certainly look into the Sigma.  I would love to hear feedback from you in a separate post on whether this Sigma ...
  • TeeJay - Can you tell me where you see the lens for $399.  I still see the non-VC version at $499 and the VC version at $649 at most places on-line. Thanks
  • Lisetta - You are correct.  I do not print the photos.  I email the digital images to the parents.  As I said before, most people just want to display their child on social media.  It is more ...
  • I cannot answer about how much to charge at private events - like you parties, weddings etc have always been of friends and so I give the some of the photos for free.  I stay out of the ...
  • Replied in GPS

  • I agree with both Globemstr3 and VisionLight.  I don't think that you will see much difference between the SX40 and the SX50. I bought an SX50 to replace my wife's camera but it has ended up being ...
  • I don't see how using the 50mm f/1.8 lens is going to eliminate the shadow.  The shadow is caused because you have a light source that is creating it.  Look at your subject - if there is a shadow, ...
  • Seriously!  You bump your own post after only 4 hours!  It is working time here in the USA and many of us don't have time to answer posts.  Be patient - people will reply when they have time. With ...
  • I can't tell you what you should buy. But after doing my research, these are the lenses that I have on my 60D. The 18-135mm "kit" lens is my everyday, walk-around lens and is probably in the camera ...
  • Replied in Forever.....
    +1 Tedolf has given the perfect answer. My only addition is that unless properly stored, CD-ROM or DVD disks will only last about 10 years.  If you really want to keep forever, I would recommend ...
  • You are looking for slightly different requirements here. I am assuming you will be indoors for the wrestling and dependent on the lighting in the gym.  Even if you are allowed to use a flash, ...
  • Using the camera search feature here in DPR, I see four cameras that meet your requirements: http://www.dpreview.com/products/search/cameras#criterias=SpecsCoreParams%2CSpecsWireless%2CSpecsGPS%2CS ...
  • I have no experience with the Nikon so cannot comment on that camera. My Canon 60D gives great images when viewed on my big screen HDTV. My wife's nephew installed Magic Lantern on his 60D and with ...
