  • If you already have appropriate lenses and you want a body, then pick whichever version of used 5D or 6D that fits in your budget. If you must get lenses, or at least lenses more than a few manual ...
  • I had researched standalone slide scanners a few years ago and decided there were some problems with them, mainly the cost and the time.  I had ideas for using a camera and macro lens and finally ...
  • If you get good results then people will overlook what tools you use.  But if people look at your tools first they will discount your ability before they know what your ability is. I think this is ...
  • Replied in ah
    Doubling up the cards automatically creates the backup for you.  Every photo is automatically duplicated.  Take out the second card and store it separate from the first card and you are backed up.
  • I used a camera with single slot for a long time.  I had trouble with one card one time, but I lost the photos from a family event.  Just by chance I was watching a youtube video yesterday and a ...
  • The advantages I recall reading about-  the mirrorless is lighter.  I don't particularly care about lighter myself although some people might.  Smaller and lighter seems to be from tiny sensors ...
  • I don't understand your point.  I have a really good VR lens that works like magic, and it works with my camera with outdated mirror in it, but it doesn't make my APS-C sensor work better than a ...
  • You likely have a much smaller camera in your pocket already, and it probably doesn't have an OVF either. I think a digital camera without mirror and prism could be made very small if a person ...
  • This is what I have trouble understanding.  We have some very good DSLRS with APS-C sized sensors, and people talk about how much better the image quality is with a full frame sensor.  So you get ...
  • So the mirrorless camera has a more perfect metering system?  How does a mirror negatively affect the metering system?
  • My travel was typically with an 18-200 on a DX camera.  I recently went to Yellowstone N.P. and carried a Nikon 55-300 on my second DX camera.  This is a pretty small and light lens but worked out ...
  • You've probably found that Roosevelt Lodge and Cooke City are even closer to Lamar Valley.  We drove in from Cooke City about 10 days ago and hit a big herd of Bison crossing the road in Lamar ...
  • Why mirrorless? I think the main reason is to be different. When I bought my first camera I knew that Canon and Nikon made the best cameras but for some reason I didn't think I was ready for the ...
  • Some people like to watch the TV, some people prefer to look out the window.  One is a lot more real than the other.
  • Most of the popular Jeep trails around Silverton aren't that bad.  There are a couple of trails that are more difficult but the Jeep rental companies will tell you which ones and won't let you ...
  • I pack a small sensor camera with a small f2.8 zoom.  :) But back to image stabilization- I just got back from 4 days in Yellowstone.  One of the cameras we carried was my Nikon d7200 with 55-300 ...
  • My daughter and I did a lot of hiking in Yellowstone last week.  We carried my D300 and my D7200, with no problems.  Sometimes I was carrying both.
  • Here are some reduced size files, completely unedited.  I was using an ultrawide lens so framing wasn't too critical but I still had to be a little careful with pointing the camera.  It does make ...
  • What, no comments so far? I like that area and have visited numerous times. My interest in this area is jeeping and seeing the old mines and buildings. There are tour companies, probably in all of ...
  • You're basically talking about snapshots.  For that without flash I sometimes use program mode, sometimes aperture priority.  If I'm using flash I will always use aperture priority and set the ...
