  • It seems few cameras these days have the GPS built-in.  I happen to own one of them, the Canon 6D.  In the Canon world, there are a few DSLRs with built-in GPS, such as the Canon 6D/6D Mark II, 5D ...
  • Do you shoot indoors mostly in wide angle @24mm? If you do, the G1XIII is a good fit. If any zooming is needed to get a closer look, the G1XIII can be slower than its 1" sensor based cousin, the G5X. ...
  • That would be your choice, not mine.  As the saying goes, do not put all eggs in a single basket.
  • Memory cards become cheaper over time.  Higher capacity cards can be bought for less than the lower ones from a few yeas ago. One should not be forced to pay for the speed and capacity (the latest ...
  • Not really.  As picky as I am, I found the shots from my Google Nexus 5X are more than adequate for food and casual shots such as around airports. The best part of the Nexus 5X is that all photos ...
  • I have more than one backup.  On trips with a SLR, the second camera and 1st backup would be the Panasonic FZ-1000 for telephoto shoots mostly and Canon G5X as 3rd camera and 2nd backup for indoor ...
  • The backup could be your phone.
  • One cannot expect camera stores to pay higher energy costs just so one can test camera AF in bright lighting. Besides a low light setting could be perfect to test camera's low light abilities ...
  • Built-in memory costs extra and becomes obsolete (speed & capacity) over the life of the camera.
  • Super zoom or not, the sensor size matters a great deal. Based on my own experience, RAW files from 1" or larger sensor based cameras or super zooms have better DR with RAW, not to mention to WB ...
  • A PC with a video card that supports the 4K resolution will work. I am not familiar the PS output resolution. Does it support 4K? Since I do not want to connect a PC to the 4K TV, I was looking for ...
  • From Firefox or Chrome, right click on the image and choose the option: Search Google with this image . From the search results, choose an image that is the best match.
  • Would switching to a lighter Canon FF body help, such as the 6D or 5D Mark IV?  I agree with you about the weight issue.  I would not want to have another 1D body or battery grips for the precise ...
  • If the weight is a concern, there are light Canon FF bodies that are not a lot of different in weight than the Sony A7III. I am considering the A7III but I am not sure it would be that much better ...
  • What lenses do you use normally with the 5D Mark IV?  If it is the 24-105 f/4L IS (II), then a G5X will work quite well unless you do not think the eye level viewfinder is important during bright ...
  • 2016 2014 2011 2011 2010 Thank you for posting the list. It is nice to see that Sony released one as late as 2016 with the full articulated screen, It seems that Sony has moved to ML completely and ...
  • It has been a long time since Sony produced a camera, P&S or ML with a fully articulated screen. There must be a reason behind this design decision.
  • It seems most current advanced compact cameras are 1" sensor based with few exceptions.  Among 1" sensor based compact camera, the Panasonic FZ1000 is by far my favorite. Other people may pick ...
  • PhotoGuru supports two higher resolutions than 1080p, 2880x16320 HD and 3840x2160 4K.  You should be able to get the 2880x1620 HD with an Amazon Fire TV or Android TV connected to the 4K TV.  Both ...
  • I start out with just one full frame body with one lens, the 5D + 24-105 f/4L 12 years ago.  Things have changed.  I now take one of following combinations depending on where I am going and what I ...
