Hi All, Yesterday I posted a question to help choose between k30 and d5200. And now, thanks to some detailed replies, I've decided to go for the nikon. However, going through more details & reviews, I'm now confused between the D5200 & D7000! I understand that the D5200 has the better sensor, But the D7000 has more features. Both are similarly priced and fit my budget. Which one do you'll suggest? and why?
Hi All, I am considering to buy either a pentax k30 or a nikon d5200 as my first DSLR. I was hoping I could get some expert opinions on both of these cameras and how do they compare against each other. I would have avoided to post this question, but I wasn't able to find a good comparison between the two cameras. Living in Dubai, I probably will spend much of my time learning photography by shooting buildings, architecture and such. As I live in a region heavily tilted towards Nikon &...

some cameras have huge amount of pixels, for us that rarely blow up images beyond A3 it might seem odd to use soo many pixels (unless you take pics of birds at long distances and want to crop away a lot). is there any advantage of setting the camera to a lower resolution? say from 24MP to 12MP, ie on each sqrt(2) less pixels. What really am asking is : do modern cameras use this loss of "extra" information to improve other aspects than sheer space resolution, i.e. light sensitivity, noise...
Okay that might be a little over exaggerated but I am buying new camera and am killing myself over two. Pentax K-30 $849 http://www.costco.com/Pentax-K-30-2-Lens-Weatherproof-DSLR-Bundle-Blue.product.100034661.html or Sony NEX6L/B2BDL 16.1 MP Compact System Camera with 16-50mm Power Zoom Lens and 55-210mm Lens (Black) - around $1100 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AB4I6NS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER I love different things about each but I need help coming...
Hi, I am looking to buy a camera for a 14 day safari through Kenya that I am going on next as part of my zoology degree. Due to being a student, the expense of the trip and a beginner in photography, I do not wish to spend over £700 on one camera just yet. I would like to capture decent pictures but IQ is not the be all and end all. I have narrowed it down to two different cameras, the Pentax K-30 and the Fujifilm HS50EXR. The Pentax K-30 with the 18-55mm WR + 50-200mm WR lens kit is...
First, I would like to thanks everyone who responded to my last post. You all are geniuses and gave very helpful advise. So I decided to go for DSLR but now which one? Here are a few options: Pentax K-30 http://www.costco.com/Pentax-K-30-2-Lens-Weatherproof-DSLR-Bundle-Blue.product.100034661.html Nikon 5200 http://www.costco.com/Nikon-D5200-DSLR-Camera-2-Lens-Bundle.product.100032348.html Nikon D 60 http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-12-3MP-DX-Format-Digital-3-5-5-6G/dp/B001ENOZY4 Nikon...
I am in the market for a Pentax K5 iis, nobody in North America offers this camera with the 18-135mm kit lens but I found a pretty good deal on ebay from Taiwan. I know that if I had to warranty the camera it would be a PIA but other than that, is there any reason not to buy it? I wouldn't have to pay 12% tax, this camera and lens in Canada would cost me just under $2000, on ebay I would save almost $500. I could get the K30 18-135mm in Canada for $1k + tax and save myself the headache......
