Hello everyone! I come from the point-and-shoot world and now I'm aiming to go a step further in terms of image quality. Recently, I bought the HX300 but I'm not happy with the grainy photos it produced (although I'm keeping it for that 50x zoom), so I guess it's time to move on. Since I'm a botanist (very enthusiastic about photography) and will mainly do landscapes and plants with tons of macros, I obviously need something with good macro capabilities. I think I'd be happy with RX100, but...
Hi guys, I am a long time DPReview user but first time asker of questions :) I Love the DPReview site and was directed here by my Photography Lecturer as a good place for a full compliment of information. I have a Canon 550D that I love but I am looking to supplement this with a slightly smaller camera for more everyday use. I do photography for work and sometimes the 550D is not practical to cart around everywhere . Currently I have Nikon P520 and Sony HX300 left on my list to pick...
I am looking to upgrade from a basic digital camera I have had for ages to something with a bit more capability. The camera will mostly be used to take family photos and general photography. With young children I will need it to have the capacity to take photos quickly (as kids run past etc), both up close and at a distance (across sport fields / beaches etc), and potentially in low light at times. While they won't regularly be blown up, it would be nice to have the ability to blow them up...
For the wife. She has a great eye for pictures of people but will not spend much time in the menus, although she has some understanding of apertures and the like (I do not.) Kids sports, close ups, animals. Some nature. Home - Park - Beach, in that order. I think that FZ200 lens is the topper, although the Sony user interface may seal the deal. She thinks she wants the longest zoom and largest file size of all the soccer moms, but that's not the whole story! If this is enough information,...
Hi Everyone, We bought a Sony DSC-HX300 a few months ago, and I've been recently wanting to get back into sky viewing. I haven't ever done astrophotography, and I'm not entirely sure how it works - but if I buy a new telescope that I can't attach my HX300 to, I'll be pretty disappointed. I don't even know how to start finding out compatibility....so does anyone have any advice on what I'm looking for? Thank you.
I was recently looking at buying a new pair of high quality binoculars to take with me on vacations and for occasional use wildlife spotting in the backyard. While browsing online I happened to come across 'superzoom' cameras such as the Panasonic Lumix FZ70(/72), Sony DSC-HX300B and Canon Powershot SX50-HS, and having now watched a few of the have-to-be-seen-to-be-believed superzoom demonstration videos on Youtube (such as this one ), I'm thinking I should scrap the binocular idea, leave my...
Not sure if this is the right place to post it I have a Sony Cybershot HX100V I looked at the newer HX300 which is almost basically what I already have but more MP and zoom and no GPS. The Android option would be nice but not required (and I am aware of the new Galaxy lens that is becoming available but it only offers 10x zoom at this point. Some might say I might not need more than 10x (and that may be true, most of the time I wouldn't) but if I'm going to buy a super zoom I want something...
