  • Usually I use a similar concept but inverted for which lens I default to each camera. For the rest of the trip I am considering keeping 10-20mm on D7500 and 10-100 or 85 macro on V2. If I need 85 ...
  • I use a fishing vest… As airplanes now consider Fanny pack a bag, I started to use a Patagonia fishing vest to carry from passport to headphones to power banks to lenses… During my last medical ...
  • Based on my experience with D7500, if you are willing to crop later, there is no need for FT-1. Particularly, if you will be taking pictures from your window (no need to carry anything). In ...
  • Wonderful picture. Unfortunately, no tripod allowed and full of people. Since I am not a great photographer, and I doubt I can take better pictures than many already available on the web, I plan ...
  • Thanks. Everyone seems to agree wide angle is better.  But I wonder what range of wide is better: 18-35 mm vs 27-270mm (FX equiv). I traveled twice without my “cameras” also thinking cellphones ...
  • Replied in The V1….
    There is no point in chasing the latest technology.  It is not cost effective.  I prefer to use old tech and travel to one more place. I try to aim to buy at last year technology in computers and ...
  • Replied in The V1….
    Makes perfect sense. Also wide aperture gear tend to be of higher acuity in general. I am just lazier than you (also have some chronic back pain) so prefer as light as possible. I ended up ...
  • Replied in The V1….
    I also recommend macro (40 vs 85 mm, based on your preference), 35 DX vs 50 f/1.8 for portrait, and long zoom (70-300 AF-P VR is a great starting point). I used for a while an old Zeiss planar 50 ...
  • Created question thread Lens for Upper Antelope Canyon
    After 2 trips without a camera (my laptop broke shortly after Italy), I am ready to start traveling again with Nikon 1/DSLR. I was unable to find an open slot for Photography tour, so I am going on ...
  • You are absolutely right!

    Man, I used to use manual flash at lower power with my old Nikon FE and Vivitar 285 and do this calculations…

    I am getting old… I better stick with thru the lens...

  • So it allows 1/64 of power with GN 14.

    That would be GN 0.22. So using a Nikon Z 50/f0.96 it reaches 23 cm/9 inches.
    Or using 28mm/f2.8 that comes with Zfc it reaches 8 cm or 3 inches.

    Very...

  • Let’s hope they are negative and you will be enjoying Thailand after fast recovery.

  • Thanks for everyone's tips. As most of you suggested the most used focal lens equivalent was ultra-wide to wide angle.  However, as it was easier to use cellphone for ultra-wide angle (11-14 mm ...
  • Praying for fast and complete recovery. ‘Looking forward to continue to learn from your wisdom in this forum for many years to come. Daniel
  • Those are great advice. If I take N1, I definitely will take extra batteries, particularly for J5 as with V2 (I usually carry 3-4 extra for J5 and 1-2 extra for V2). I plan to use 512GB cards (we ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts. Your suggestion of mid range zoom is interesting. ‘BTW, my family love to stop and take pictures and videos but they only trust their phones. Sigh… I haven’t had bodies ...
  • Thanks everyone for the reply. Looks like consensus is wide angle lens + 1 "normal zoom" - So Nikon 1 with  6.7-13 +10-300  (18-270 mm Equiv) or Dx 10-20 + 70-300 AFPs (for size and weight, 15-30 + ...
  • Replied in Iphone Images
    I think phones are tools just like 1 inch sensor cameras or full frame cameras with pros and cons. ‘The beauty of cellphones is that you are carrying them anyway. So I treat them as such and always ...
  • Created question thread Italy, what gear to take?
    Will be traveling for the First time in Italy {Amalfi, Capri, Florence, Tuscany, Rome). Before my travel choices were clear, now not so much. In the past I would have taken Nikon 1 with 6.7-13, ...
