I've been impressed by the quality of reviews I found here tonight. So I thought I would ask you the question that has brought me here. It's probably a bit unusual.I want to monitor and photograph microfilm. I have three requirements in a camera (besides lowest price possible!)(1) Must output live to my HDTV screen at 1080 by 1920. I suppose it could go through computer to do this, but direct out seems "fastest" option. By this, I mean that I want to see the picture--read the microfilm...

First time poster and been over 20 years since I've used an SLR.I have an old 1980's Pentax MG with unknown (maybe Tamron) telephoto lens and have tried placing it on the new(ish) K-r and while it appears to physically fit, doesn't seem to be just point and click in that pressing the shutter does not take a photo.Is there some setting required to use the old lens on the newer digital camera?

Hi, I have my V1 coming next Monday from B&H.  My understanding is that it comes with View NX2 and I wonder if that is adequate or if I need Capture NX2 for raw conversion and better tools for editing.  I should say that I am an old Nikon user (many Coolpixes, from the 995 to the 7100) and also the D70 and D50 DSLRs.  (My newer DSLR is a Pentax K-r but my Nikon DSLRs are still in use, but all my lenses are older non-VR lenses, D, G, and the kit lenses of the time.)    At the time I got my...

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...

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...
