  • Replied in hasselblad hv
    Your best bet may be to find your nearest Hasselblad dealer and looking at an actual camera. The lighting can affect how the image looks and change the color from grey to silver.
  • Would you be prepared to do some teaching using YouTube? I find that Adorama has some really good tutorials, but you may have to select specific ones for her. When my wife was learning to use a ...
  • Replied in jpg or raw
    If you are used to shooting RAW, then there is no reason to stop. I've always shot in RAW + JPG.  However, as camera technology and sensors have gotten better, I find that I very seldom use the RAW ...
  • If you have a Wi-Fi router that has USB ports, they you could plug your external Hard Drive into that.  This drive will be available as a "network drive" to all your computers in your network.
  • Many waterproof cameras will work as regular everyday cameras. Start here on this site: http://www.dpreview.com/products/search/cameras?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=mainmenu&utm_medium=tex ...
  • Replied in Yes!
    It is probably not so useful for a wide-angle lens, but I definitely would have it for a longer lens like the 70-300. It is possible to do without, but the percentage of sharper images will ...
  • I still have and use my Canon Rebel (300D), though it is no longer my primary DSLR. I have gotten rid of the original kit lens and it most often has the 50mm f/1.8 or 18-135mm zoom. It has become ...
  • Yes, you do have to be careful at the beach.  Here's what I do: 1. I only take one lens with me so I am not tempted to change lenses at the beach 2. I put my camera in a big ziplock bag and seal ...
  • For starters, try the Camera Feature Search here on DPR http://www.dpreview.com/products/search/cameras?utm_campaign=internal-link&utm_source=mainmenu&utm_medium=text&ref=mainmenu#criterias=SpecsCo ...
  • If you are looking at the technical specs on these three, then it is a no-brainer - the 70D is the best of the three.  It has the fast focusing from the 7D, the newer Digic-5 processor and the ...
  • Hi Victoria, Yes - they are definitely trying to upsell you. There is no way you need to spend anything like that sort of money for an SD card. SD cards come in different Classes. Class 6 has a minimum
  • May I ask if you have to have a dSLR? The whole point of this type of camera is to have the ability to change lenses while taking good quality photographs. For your application, you need the high ...
  • The Compatibility Mode from the drop down only toggles the Mode On or Off. Instead, try doing SHIFT+F12.  This will bring up a separate menu at the bottom of the window.  One of the options is ...
  • Try asking in the "Printers and Printing" forum. You may get a better response http://www.dpreview.com/forums/1003
  • Yep - State Farm again. I have my cameras and lenses as well as other expensive items in the house as part of our home owners insurance.
  • It looks like Nikon took out a patent to do exactly that: http://nikonrumors.com/2012/12/17/nikon-patents-a-digital-back-for-35mm-film-slr-cameras.aspx/ Whether it will actually be made into a ...
  • I know the Digic 5 is newer and supposed to be better, but when I compared images from my niece's 650D/T4i vs. my 60D, I really could not see a difference. I saw this video on Youtube and if you ...
