On article Buying Guide: Best cameras for parents (254 comments in total)

Meanwhile the vast majority of images are captured by I-phones or a similar device. A traditional single function camera designed to capture still or even video is not particularly well matched to parenting in terms of size, cost, and functions.

mahonj: Back in my day, parents would have an Instamatic 33 / or a Brownie 127.
And still managed to get photos out of them.
Mind you, the Instamatic was pretty terrible - incredible how popular they were.
+ what a great name - it wasn't instant and it wasn't automatic.

It was affordable and who can complain about the flash cube?

noflashplease: I'm not sure I see the point of this camera body. It's like a X-T series but bigger and more expensive. Fujifilm seems to married to APS-C sensors and Medium format, but the future is with full frame. We've seen the future and it looks a lot like the Sony A7III.

The future is your phone.
The traditional camera, whether m43, APS-C, Full Frame or Medium Format, is just a niche product.

MikeFairbanks: Then the winner of the auction got home and realized it had a cropped sensor and no 4K.

Now someone tells me.

DavidsfotosDotCom: H2o housing is $______?

Probably the same price as the PT-EP12--$749.

Chris Noble: "faux leather wraps around the body"... Good thing that "faux" means fake rather than some endangered species.

The only endangered species at this point are buyers for entry level cameras.

The camera makers have to compete with the phones and at the same time produce a camera that does not competes with the advanced products in the lineup. Tough balance

@stevo23--I will definitely check it out.

@stevo23--thanks for the advice. I was planning on staying in Cortez but now I will look closely at Durango. Mesa Verde is a place I have wanted to see from the time I saw a photo of the place 50 years ago.

Hikes and trains are good fun.

@stevo23--happily I live near places that offer alternatives to the national parks--there are some great places in the National Forests in the Sierra that have not been completely overrun (yet) such as Ebbetts Pass or Carson Pass. It isn't Yosemite or Tahoe, but you can feel that you are getting away from it all.

I am planning a trip to Mesa Verde--sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays seems to be a good time.

anticipation_of: It’s a shame when things like this are necessary, but sometimes they are. The National Park Service has a dual mission; to facilitate the enjoyment of America’s natural resources, and to preserve them for future generations. These missions are often in tension.

Very true and the tension starts the moment the first visitor enters the park and it grows with each additional carload of visitors.

@stevo23,

Certain locations in certain parks are stuffed to the gills these days. The Yosemite Valley constitutes less than 1 percent of the park land area but receives most of the visitation.

The first point being is that there are still places that are not overrun in Yosemite that can be accessed during the summer months.

My second point is that only a handful of the National Parks receive this type of visitation. A trip to Great Basin National Park for example is lightly visited.

KrampusClaus: How about those damn selfie sticks on hiking trails ????

Eyes can be poked out, male bb's can be poked, armpits can be poked, boobs can be poked !

Are these 'professionals' paying a nice fee to the NP for these classes, with all the NP budget cuts (thks brainless GOP), they should pay 10% of their take ?

Monopods can be used as a hiking stick AND a stabilizer, OR a sword against puny selfie sticks in a fight !

How about distinguishing between commercial and noncommercial activities on park lands?

"Speaking anonymously to DPReview, one photography workshop operator and permit holder explained how such a restriction would impact their workshop, saying, "I will be forced to cease all commercial workshops in Zion National Park ... [by] enforcing this rule, they are essentially saying that they don't want commercial photography workshops in their park."'

Our Park, not "their park."

In the world of parks, I have no problem restricting a private company's business model when it competes with higher priorities--such as the enjoyment by individuals and families or protecting the landscape.

It is all about priorities

A nice little camera to take on that trip to Hawaii. A small financial commitment as measured by the price of the trip. It is sized to fit in a pocket. It if fine for what it is.

Be bold--do a medium format camera that is priced to move.

Bypass the full frame and move the market. Fuji is trying this and it makes some sense.

I am surprised that DPReview hasn't been asked to remove this article by Disney.

The optimal one camera solution for a trip to Hawaii.

Buy a pack of OP/TECH Rain sleeves for a few bucks. The first line of defense against the elements. The weather resistance of the body and lens is only a second line of defense.

In reply to:

Bobthearch: I'd love to have a bag that looks like that. But if the main compartment doesn't seal closed and the pockets are just open pouches, the bag is utterly useless.

"How often do you turn your camera bag upside down with the flap open?"

It just takes one time.
