I need to provide a little background so you can help me. I'm a guy for whom photography is a hobby. I take pictures of birthdays, bugs, pretty flowers, sunsets, etc. My stepson plays (American) football. Taking pictures at his games has turned into a regular pasttime. High school games were always at night and it was always impossible to get a good picture. He's attending a D3 college now and games are early afternoon. The light is SO much better. However, there is an occasional...
I have two zoom lenses with the above body, a smc pentax dal 50 to 200 mm zoom and a 18 - 55 zoom, same make.Dont know much about cameras to be honest.I am going off to Morroco at Xmas. Want to get a lens hood. Will one do for both of the zooms above. If so can anyone recommend one for conditions I might encounter, for example rain and desert dust and where I might source it.
The more I look into AF speed, it seems apparent that accuracy and less than ideal conditions are more important to me than ideal condition speed tests. I need to focus on moving kids, indoor low house lighting, etc. Anyone know which locks on better, or are they about equal? Better is more consistent in these tough conditions and focusing on the right subject, not always faster. I assume the new k-511 beats them both? My K-r is terrible at this stuff.
Hello, I am going to be looking for an dSLR to buy but for now I am trying to find a decent camera for my workplace.I am in need of something that has a built in GPS and is under $500CDN. It doesn't need to be a dSLR, a point and shoot would work just fine but after researching I am finding there are so many to choose from. Does anyone have any suggestions? What I'm looking for is:Built in GPSDecent optical zoomGood battery lifeAny suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!Kristylu
lens is a 16-45mm f/4, camera is a k20, photographer has 40 years experience.Not looking for praise (I know it is a nice shot) but I feel like I'm not getting everything I can out of my photos.Wondering if I'm hitting the limitations of the lens, camera or whether I need to adjust my shooting techniques.Mistake #1 I don't have a neutral density filter so I was running up against the ISO, shutter speed limits of the k20. Critiques about exposure, contrast and color or Photoshop suggestions are...
