  • Being of the youngest age bracket I bought the Fuji as an unobtrusive walk around camera.  Weight wasn't the driving factor but rather size. A DSLR is an attention grabber whereas the Fuji looks ...
  • I would suggest anything with a flippy/tilting screen. Something like a d5300 with kit lens. Or whatever the canon equivalent is. Or something mirrorless. Honestly besides poor lighting there ...
  • Depends entirely on what you want to shoot. AF is not that great on the XE-1. I got a slightly worn one off ebay for $220 and coupled it with the 27mm pancake and love it for an edc but it's not a ...
  • Replied in New to me X-E1
    I changed out my everyday carry option for an X-E1. Lost some weight and size and gained metering and af. Just a couple of snapshots from my first day with the camera.
  • Indulge me then. How does a poor body spoil the output of a great lens?
  • I disagree. There is nothing inherently wrong with the sensors in cheap bodies. They are usually the same sensors as mid-tier cameras just with less features in the body themselves. If you don't ...
  • The push pull, motordriven version is very dependent on which motor is driving it. The D7100 isn't the best for this if you need Af speed. As others have mentioned going for the 2 ring AFS version ...
  • It is a bit pricey but looks to provide what I need. Requires power is a bit of a downer though. Since you have the unit, reading the reviews it sounds like the individual modules can be used ...
  • Thanks I'll keep an eye on the exposure. Focus was good (not focusing on the rim), shot at F4 at the wide end just provided plenty of DOF putting the rim in focus as well. I'll give it a try next ...
  • Created questions Multiple cf card reader
    Looking to replace a cf card reader and was interested in something with 2 or 3 slots for cf cards. I realize that it won't make anything go faster but it will be a minor convenience to not have to ...
  • Created discussions C&C: Some basketball
    Hey everyone, Here are a few shots that I was looking for some feedback on. I'm shooting for the school paper and am just looking for some more eyes. Thanks. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  • I believe it is an annual subscription paid either $120 up front with fewer checks back to the home servers or $10 per month for 12 months with I think a monthly check back to the servers to make ...
  • I'm going to go a different route and assume you have the latest version of the desktop lightroom. You then assumed since you have the latest version of lightroom the iPad app is probably free. ...

  • I'm pretty sure using Hawaii and a girl in a bikini is cheating when making that argument.
  • For $100 for a refurb it is certainly worth getting imo. It can be soft wide open on the far end but it is not top glass so this should be expected. I would also look at the 70-300 vr. Refurb for ...
  • Seems like you are just strengthening the argument for licensing. If businesses are willing to think short-term then adopt the strategy that exploits that.
