In December I will be travelling to Londolozi near Kruger National Park for a South African safari.  I will be upgrading my camera and I am looking for advice on what to buy.  I will be able to rent Canon or Nikon lenses at the lodge so I want to stick with those brands. 1) Mirrorless or DSLR? 2) One camera body I am considering is the Nikon D750.  If DSLR is the way to go, is this overkill?  Will a less expensive camera provide everything I need? Thank-you, Bob Clark Marblehead, Massachusetts

Hi friends. I am on holiday in Krakow, Poland and while my wife was in the clothes stores I was wondering in a huge electronics store called (MediaMarkt). Since 2002, I alwayd had a digital camera in the powershot family, the last ones being the G12 and Gx1, mainly used for wild life and plant(& casually insect) photography, scientific images, travelling and family outings. For this reason the articulated screen is a must in my cameras. I am in Krakov (Poland) for these 3 days and the price...

Hello All, I have been on this forum for little over a year now, but this is my first post. But have been actively reading many of the posts and learnt a lot from it, thank you all for that. Ok now, Amateur astronomy and Star gazing is one of my fav hobbies and I have started to spend time on astro-photography. I have done some wide-field, constellation and Lunar till now.. but feel i should try on DSOs. I own a K-01 and K-r.. and seems neither of these have an option to take remote shutter...

So I started with Pentax some years ago with a K-r, drawn in by the small limited lenses nobody else was making. I then progressed to the k-01, and have the da 15, 35macro, 40mm, as well as a Sigma 10-20 and 30mm f1.4 and some random older Pentax lenses. I've been really struggling to decide to stay with Pentax or go to something like the em-1 or G7.  I shoot two subjects, architecture interiors and exteriors, and my little kids. I recently bought a Ricoh GR and a lx100, which I use as small...

Good morning all, I really need some advise here as I am buying a new camera. Because I have these Minolta lenses belowe , my idea was to go with the Sony system. Because of lack of funds I would have to go for a low end Canon or something like that  as I wouldn't able to afford the lenses. It would then be a kit lense. but on the other hand , there is no use buying the Sony a 77  MII  if my lenses don't work. I  have been reading the forums, one person said that you couldn't use anything...

Hey all--- I'm hoping someone here can help me decide on which teleconverter to get for my 300 2.8 VR II lens.  This lens is new to me and I find it to be absolutely fantastic.  I decided on this lens as I wanted a long 'ish' focal length for wildlife photography, but I also wanted the flexibility of being able to handhold my camera when taking shots which is easily done with this lens.  I mainly use the lens for photographing larger birds and also animals in Kruger, South Africa. Now I am...

Hi all, I have recently bought a second-hand Pentax K-R. It's a decent enough camera for me, considering my beginner status (I also have a Canon G16 to take around with me). However, I am stuck when it comes to lenses; it seems the mount for the K-R is a 'Pentax KAF2', which is all when and good but I can't ever find any decent lenses with that particular mount that don't cost a fortune. Could anybody point me in the right direction for any possible lens adapter? I would like to get a half...
