I'd like to buy my first proper camera and I'd appreciate your help. I really want to do some photography that's good for both preserving memories and being creative. In particular I, like many people here, really want to work with narrow depth of field and ideally nice bokeh. Most of the photos I want to take can be done very well with an iPhone or the very old Olympus PAS we have (which still takes fantastic pictures). But narrow depth of field escapes my current cameras and I have a...
It's been a while since I have kept up with this, but will either the A37 or A55 work for shooting birds in flight, and moving animals? or would the EVF, and possibly lens selection be the deterring factor here? I was thinking getting either one of the aforementioned SLT and solely use it with one the longer zoom lenses for wildlife. I take the A55 would better for such scenario since it has a larger buffer, but then I take the A37 has the better sensor(which has it's own advantages)?My other...
I'm getting ready to downsize my camera kit, which involves selling my remaining Canon gear and picking up a GH3 (new main body, keeping GX1 and others as backup) plus a 60mm Macro and 12mm f/2 (to add to my 14/20/45 kit). It also means once again trying to find the "perfect" bag. I went from a Slingshot to a Fastpack with my full frame gear- I do a lot of walking and hiking so the backpack (especially with a padded belt) made it much more comfortable. However, the Fastpack I have is...
Hello all,I want to digitise a significant part of the 7500 images my dad left me. The collection consists mainly of B&W negative filmstrips and framed colour dia's.Initially I thought of going down the film scanner route, but investing in a scanner that's slow and will never be used again seemed silly so I thought maybe I could use my G2. A bit of googleing, amazonning and ebaying turned up a whole lot of information about bellows and old manual lenses and lightboxes and such like, but I'm...
Hi everybody,I have a Fuji X-Pro1 and a Contax G2 with 45mm and 90mm lenses, and I was thinking to share the lenses between the two cameras via the Kipon adapter. Therefore, I am also planning to buy the Zeiss Biogon 21mm lens. Still, I have read on a badly translated japanese website that some of these lenses need a cut of the plastic support placed on their back to fit. Do you know which Contax G prime lenses are for sure compatible with the Fuji X-Pro1 without modifying their back? Thank...
After getting the GF3, I really starting like the size and in my testings works surprisingly decently with with my adapted MF lenses. Now this has kind of got me thinking maybe sell of the GF3, and G2 I have and exclusively use the GX1. I want to see the opinions of users who went from G or GH series camera to the GX1(I guess GF1/2 could work as it does have evf port and hot shoe) or E-PM1/2. E-PL3/5? Do you miss the articulating display? Is the lack of an evf an issue? Any other comments or...
HelloI will be on 3 weeks holiday to India soon. It will be my first trip to India. I am not a pro on assignment, but just a casual holidays snapper wanting to bring back nice memories of my trip. Will be wanting to shoot stills and vids.I hate to switch lenses when traveling. Always have the wrong FL at the decisive moment and miss what I would consider many nice pictures. But have only been carrying one main camera and maybe a small P&S for a backup . So I have been thinking, with the...
I have a Canon PowerShot G2. I'm thinking about photographing documents with it using the Stitch Assist feature. I have not been able to set the focus and so far all I've been getting is unreadable. Is there a way I could hold the camera about 12" above a document and get a clear picture? Thank you
