  • If you're operating at the longer focal lengths, there will be some shaking visible in the video recording despite the Image Stabilization. This shaking, however, will be less noticeable than the ...

    What you're asking for can't be done well, regardless of the amount of money spent.  You need skills, and while knowing what you're doing with the sport is better than knowing nothing, photography ...
  • You're inviting much disappointment.  You first need to understand what you're asking for and what is required. Indoor sports requires telephoto lenses with large (f/2.8 or at least f/4) ...
  • You need a camera that can hold its shutter open for more than 5 seconds, preferably 20 seconds or more.  That excludes most compact, all-in-one cameras on the market, either because they lack the ...
  • Exactly, but you can't buy the requisite skills and install them like a software package, yet.  Appropriate hardware helps speed the learning process and deliver better results initially, but ...
  • There is no such thing as an "entry level camera."  There are only entry-level prices, and those prices are many times higher than what you're considering, assuming that your "$" is a fiat ...
  • The Canon 60D is the best choice over the Nikon D5300 and whatever a "t5i" is, but not like the build quality and responsiveness of a Canon 5D, 6D, or 7D.  An old Canon 1D Mark III would be a ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    Your experienced problem of backfocusing is common when photographing athletes on a field at the Infinity focusing distance of the lens. Your camera body is probably the bigger fault than the ...
  • Can it be assumed that the "flashlight" puts out at least 500 lumens and spreads camera-quality light evenly away from its centre spot? A camera that takes photos without light is something that is ...
  • No camera works well if you don't put in the effort to do the work, and if you don't know what you're doing with that camera.  Success comes from being able to use the camera as a tool to do the ...
  • Replied in Sigma 18-300
    A 70-300 lens is a 4X zoom, so I'm not sure why you related that to your 15X zoom requirement. More important is understanding what focal lengths and apertures that you need. If you're sure that ...
  • Replied in Some tips
    First off, the dSLR is not heavy.  It's the long telephoto lens that's heavy, and that's probably not something that you want to be using for a wedding. Tips: (1) Wedding photography is like wildlife ...
  • Have you tried to download a better camera application for your iPhone?
  • Replied in It's overexposed
    There's nothing wrong with the colour of the sky in your example. The problem is that the sky is overexposed, while the foreground area is properly exposed.  Changing your metering mode won't ...
  • That depends on your level of acceptable risk, the asking price, your intended usage, and who is the seller.  If the seller is "cameranoobie" at eBay, and the item is advertised with a verbatim ...
  • Good, but don't rush into something like this with big expectations. What can you do that those other happy snappers can't do with their cameras? It's very difficult to compete with "free." The ...
  • Replied in Some suggestions
    You're doing a bunch of things wrong: (1) Expectations: If the lighting is bad, the photos will be bad; if you don't know what you're doing, the photos will likely be bad
  • Replied in You mean 3000 mm
    A 300 mm lens will only get you about 30 yards of range, not 300 yards.  Another problem is that you're shooting through 300 yards of an air mass that can have a way of making photography ...
