The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
So after the usual dithering about whether to upgrade from a D7100 to "something else" I decided to jump to the D500, both for work (I photograph children's events for my library) and personal projects, which are mostly landscape and street. Rather than sell my workhorse APS-C lenses, I decided to see what the results would be when using them with a 'pro' body during a week-long visit to Acadia National Park in Maine. Overall, I'm very happy, even with such pedestrian lenses as the 18-140mm and the Sigma 17-50. The lower resolution does not seem to matter -- tests in photoshop indicate that sharp 20 x 30 inkjet prints are perfectly possible.
Acadia is a fantastic place to visit -- campsites are very reasonable even at peak season, and the park is small but has exceptionally varied scenery, with many small coastal Maine towns on Mt. Desert Island for food, photos and bed-and-breakfasts for the comfort inclined. The first photo is a grab shot from the Thuya Garden just south of Asticou Inn - I happened to spot an odd looking 'bee' on one of the flowers and switched to 3D tracking to see how well the camera could track it. It did well ...
And a couple from the park -- the rugged Maine coastline in all it's glory ..
I also convinced my wife to visit the Bass Harbor lighthouse at sunset and look the other way as I climbed down to the rocks at the base ...
Wildlife also abounds at the park -- saw some movement in the woods surrounding the lighthouse and spotted a young buck feeding in the brush. Very pleased that the D500 locked on to the deer while ignoring the surround twigs, even with the consumer grade 18-140 lens.
And no visit to the park would be complete without an evening at Bar Harbor, where the sunsets are pretty incredible (developed from RAW, but no bump in vibrance or saturation).
Thanks for looking .. C&C welcome.
When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
