  • Really enjoyed reading through all the comments and experiences. I have decided on the Black Rapid Classic Retro (RS4). Rationale includes: flexibility, safety strap, among others. Again, thanks ...
  • Thanks for all the replies; honestly, it is a bit overwhelming.....nearly too many options. In looking at some of the suggestions, they seem to favor a pro who will be carrying gear for a full ...
  • Thanks for the posts, guys. It seems like I have a couple of options that I will need to research. In looking at the Slide Light video it seems that there are multiple options for how to carry. I ...
  • Thank you for the reply. In looking at the Peak Design and Black Rapid websites, they seem to make a variety of bags and slings. I am interested in a sling. Would you mind sharing the specific ...
  • Created question thread Sling type camera strap?
    Never tried one, but given the weight of my camera/lens it might be time. Unfortunately, I know pretty much nothing about them. Even relatively moderate outings, I find that the weight on my neck ...
  • Replied in FOV
    Given that...why do most people switch to FF? I do understand that it is better in low light, results are more croppable, and can be printed larger..... What lens(es) would you recommend for DX? ...
  • Thanks for the replies.... Yes, lenses will make a huge difference. As I noted earlier, I used a superzoom for a walk around while at Yellowstone. From what I am gleaning from you folks, perhaps I ...
  • Replied in FOV
    Thanks for the reply....I wonder then in most practical situations if you find your camera too close, if so, then as I understand it a FF would be preferable. If on the other hand you find ...
  • Thanks for the very comprehensive reply....perhaps I should get a bit more specific. I currently use a D7200, as listed in my equipment list. I purchased the Tamron superzoom lens to take with me ...
  • Thank you....that helped a lot....turns out we were both right. It's the 'indirectly' term..... If I may a related question: I currently am using a crop sensor camera, and was mostly interested in ...
  • Created question thread Question: Depth compression
    Hi All, having a spirited discussion with a friend regarding the difference in images taken with a crop sensor versus full frame camera. Also, we are not discussing depth of field, that is range ...
  • Thanks for the very useful perspective.....It seems that it may be useful in a small percentage of shots, so I think I will not pursue the lens for this trip only. A friend just lent me his Nikkor ...
  • Thanks for the replies; yes, it seems like three lenses may be the best solution: - Tamron 10-24 VC - Sigma 10-20 - Tokina 11-20 Or perhaps stitching could work as well.....More research to do.....
  • Thanks for the feedback....so it seems that there are several options: 1) Use current lenses and stitch when appropriate. 2) Tamron 10-24 vc 3) Sigma 10-20 4) Tokina 11-20 Frankly, not yet sure ...
  • Created question thread Wide angle zoom conundrum
    Hi All, Heading out in Feb and will be bringing a D7000 and D7200. The 7200 will have a Tamron 18-400, and I am thinking that it might be good to have a wide angle zoom on the 7000. All images ...
  • Thanks for the reply; you make a very valid point - foreground. The Nikkor 10-20 seems like a decent lens, but is it the best value I wonder.....
  • I've done it with generous overlaps and the results using photomerge were pretty good....I guess I just talked myself out of a new lens....lol.
  • Thanks for the reply; I will look into them.....on the other hand I wonder if just using the lens I have and stitching.....is the product of the same quality as a wide angle image?
  • Created question thread Wide angle Zoom for Yellowstone
    Hi All, Heading out in Feb and will be bringing a D7000 and D7200. The 7200 will have a Tamron 18-400, and I am thinking that it might be good to have a wide angle zoom on the 7000. All images ...
  • Geez, I have to be honest; I am rethinking the decision......yes, I like sharpness in my images, but I also understand you can't get great images if you don't bring the lens.  : ) I am back to the ...
