  • Replied in Very nice!
    I didn't doubt for a moment that poor results were above all my own fault. I didn't really study the methodology that is to be followed to get at least half-decent results (I was only aware of ...
  • Replied in Very nice!
    Thanks for sharing. I especially appreciate the details about what you did to get these. My first "poor man's" attempts to shoot the Milky Way were last year, with Samyang 12mm f2.0 (same lens as ...
  • I can imagine it becoming an issue with some heavier photo gear or for very light backpacks with very thin and flimsy shoulder straps, but from personal experience it is NOT an issue for Pana G80 ...
  • Replied in Nice...
    Congrats, a very nice and diverse selection, a real eye candy :-)
  • Replied in Hear, hear...
    I second that. I am on P7700, the same family, hoping that it doesn't die anytime soon...
  • Replied in Tilt is fine
    Thanks for replying Guy. I suppose this was with tongue in cheek, because otherwise this is a really bad analogy. Smoking is objectively bad for everybody, flip-out screens are only bad (in many ...
  • Replied in Tilt is fine
    Just curious: how many cameras with flip out screens have you owned and really used for any significant period of time? My guess is none. I am sure that if somebody forced you (I say "forced" only ...
  • Replied in Agreed.
    Because what is a benefit for you may be irrelevant for somebody else. The same for your flaws. Many "benefits" and "flaws" (not all) are subjective. People have different priorities. Maybe those ...
  • Replied in Agreed.
    Yes, both types (and other versions of articulating screens) have their uses and none is the "ultimate best" as some people would have you believe.
  • Agreed! How much can the initial price be expected to drop? Not by much I guess, with nearly no competition in this segment.

  • @JRM PT:
    That's because you have never tried it, seriously! I've got the V3 since half a year ago. I regret not getting the previous version years ago. And I am getting another one before the next...

  • Replied in And here...
    Yes, me too. Why fix something that isn't broken?
  • Agreed as well.

  • I think you'll get the best idea watching some of review videos on youtube. Volume-wise the new version of Phot Sport 200 seems to be the same as the older model that I have. The photo compartment ...
  • That is a very sound advice! For light hiking a photo-specific backpack such as Lowepro Photo Sport 200 is perfect as long as you don't pack it too heavy. When packed to full capacity it gets heavy ...
  • Replied in Your avatar...
    Hey Spacedebree, is your avatar a reflection from a sculpture in a park in Venice (Italy), by any chance? Just curious...
  • I also have a Lowepro Slingshot 202 AW (a newer version exists, Slingshot 250 AW): https://www.amazon.com/Lowepro-Slingshot-DSLR-Sling-Camera/dp/B0036AWR8E/ It used to be my main photo bag ...
  • You didn't mention any specific activity you inted to use it for. For what it is worth, I use Lowepro Sport 200 AW for hiking and day trips: https://www.amazon.com/Photo-Sport-200-Lowepro-Mirrorles ...
  • @badi: "Exactly, i can count at least a dozen examples from my close friends and family who used to have compacts (the casual user type, who bought 1 mid-price compact camera every 3-4 years) that...
