Hi! I'm not a professional photographer and till now I'm using Olympus gears. I would like to upgrade my gear buying a pro or semi-pro gear what can give me professional results. I'm interested in Sony or Pentax because they are sensor shift stabilised and that's good for me because I like using old fast prime lenses. But I'm quite confused. I like shooting portrait, landscapes and architecture, indoor and outdoor. First I was interested in Pentax K-5 but after I looked at Pentax K-50 and I...
Hey guys. I have the option right now to acquire a brand new sealed in box DSLR-A100K kit for $275. Is this a better option than a SLT-A58? I know the A100 is old...but apparently the A58 had so many corners cut, I am thinking the A100 might be the better camera. I do not need video btw, and I want to use the viewfinder, so the lack of liveview on the A100 does not bother me. So, which of the two has better picture quality?
My daughter has a video project for school that sounds more involved / ambitious than I'd expect (she's in eighth grade). I'm going to try to help her capture and edit the video, but since this is for French class, clear audio capture--outside, probably on the street--is important. I have heard good stuff about the Rode Videomic line, but (1) I don't know how well they'd attach to / integrate with my A580 (I have an old-school Minolta FS-1100 to mount ISO flashes, FWIW), and (2) something...
I recently got the a58 which came with the standard 18-55 kit lens which I have never used. When I ordered the a58, I also ordered the Sigma 18-250 for $349. I thought I would want a one lens solution. I'm happy so far. But, when I read about some of the lenses, like the 50mm lenses, people say things like they can't believe how incredibly sharp the images are. Well, if that is true, I would like some of that. Maybe for taking indoor pictures of kids, grandkids, flowers, etc. So, will either...
While in manual mode and adjusting the exposure to "0" (what the camera determines in correct exposure), I can click one more stop (making it darker) and the meter is still on 0. I have to make an addition click (stop of exposure) to get the meter to move to the + or - side. In other words, the camera's meter allows me two exposure setting at the 0 meter mark. Does anyone else have this issue? My former a300 and a580 never did this. Any idea what's going on. It doesn't affect my shooting as I...
