I'm looking to buy my first DSLR. I've done some looking online and I've narrowed it down to a D5200 or a K-50. I've been interested in photography in the past, but I've never shot with anything better than a point and shoot camera. Most of the photos I'll be taking will be outdoors, landscapes, etc. I'm also looking to take pictures and video of mountain biking and whitewater kayaking. The articulating screen and autofocus system on the Nikon is a big plus, but the Pentax has some features...

Hi guys, I am trying to decide which camera to buy as I wanted to step up from my current point and shoot and have been debating between the pentax k-50, OM EM-10 and the Nikon D 5300. Here's what I am looking for: 1) Fast Auto-Focus 2) Affordable lenses 3) WIFI connectivity 4) Picture Quality Additionally, K-50 body and lens (18-55, 55-200, f1.8 50mm prime) is available for under $650 while a similar kit for EM 10 and D 5300 is available for $950. Any thoughts on how to decide would be...

I'm trying to pick a camera as a gift for my wife.  She is a novice when it comes to photography.  Coming from a Panasonic FZ35, Panasonic Sz15.  Which have been okay, but doesn't produce the type of photos she is looking for.  She mostly sticks with the auto settings, but occasional will 'play around' with more advanced features. She will be using it for a lot of different purposes, but mostly for pics of kids at various events (soccer, dance, band, baseball) most of those will be at...

Sorry for another question.  I normally don't use built-in flash a lot, but with the size and weather sealing of the K50, I'm probably going to be packing it along more than I did my old DSLR.  The pop-up flash is nothing short of HORRIBLE when it fires the pre-flash.  It makes me miss shots (reminds me of first gen digicam shutter lag frustrations) and it bothers people to no end. I assume there isn't a way to turn this off?  If I put a TTL flash on the camera, will the K50 still fire off...

I have been shooting with a Sony A200 since 2008 or so. Been using it for about 6 years now. I have the basic 18-55 kit lens, Sony 50-200 lens, Tokina 11-16 lens, Sony 1.8 35 mm, & the Sony 50mm 1.8. I enjoy using it quite a lot. It is reaching its age though. I'm going to guess that it has about +-60,000 actuations by now. I have been looking at the A77II & the A6000. Both of them look pretty awesome. Both of them have features that I want & features that I don't want. I'll be good with the...

Just received my new K-50 from Amazon today and while inputting settings I noticed "shake reduction" is grayed out or not selectable. I've read page 116 & 117 in the operating manual a couple times and still cannot activate it. What am I doing wrong? K-50 w/18-55mm kit set on Av mode with HDR off because I have image quality on RAW.

I have a one year old and want to get a camera. I'm new to this and will have to read the manual when I get the camera to familiarize myself with how to work it. That being said after doing some research it seems like the Nikon D3300 or Pentax K50 may be good options. If that is the case which option should I go with between these three...

Thinking of buying a Pentax k50 and a Pentax 18-135 lens. My question is, what would be a good companion lens for longer reach, without too much overlap, if that makes sense. Also a lens that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Thanks in advance for your input
