Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me identify this camcorder and maybe even give me some advice on VHS cameras? thank you. So i have been looking for a VHS camera to use in order to make films. Now i know pretty much nothing about VHS cameras and it only stuck an interest in me when i realised it fit my aesthetic perfectly and that although the quality may not be great and it may not be easy or cheap to run one of these things, that was part of its charm. I have been wanting to purchase...

Hi! I took this photo from my balcony in Bangkok last night. I bracketed 3 shots in various exposures to merge them into an HDR in Lightroom. I love how good Lightroom's HDR function works. (Did some more to the image though).  Bangkok skyline from my Balcony.  The one issue I have is when there is moving subjects in the frame, especially if they carry lights.

Hi, I'm in the market for a new 35mm lens and been thinking of either getting the Sigma 35mm Art of the HD 35 and is still undecided of what to get. Since I've already tried the Sigma even on a different mount, I know what I will be getting into if I went that way but the local price is still a bit prohibitive being around US$1000 (converted to my local currency). And as of the HD 35 Limited (around US$780), I have a few questions especially for the owners with a K5II/s or K3. 1. How fast is...

Taken recently with a Pentax Optio M50  The image above is typical of what one can see in the LCD display in the rear of the camera. Histogram-like patterns appear over bright areas of the image. I have read through the manual and tried changing numerous mode, exposure, and display settings. There has been no change. I...

Hi all,I hope you have the time to assist me with a camcorder purchase, because things are not going as easily as I had expected. I have spent hours digging around in an attempt to find the right camcorder for my needs, but I keep landing in confusion because I just can’t lock one down.I have been tasked with purchasing a camcorder for my company. The camcorder will be used for recording web “usability” sessions. These sessions consist of a fixed overhead camera mount, pointing straight down...
