  • Yeah, I did that but sometimes it doesn't get it right when the flower in the foreground is small.
  • I didn't know that! That's a significant limitation. I guess if you want shallow DOF you use portrait mode and hope for the best.
  • I spent two hours this morning shooting with my phone in a park. I learned a lot. No, I wouldn't be satisfied using only a phone for travel. I really thought it could work for me but I've changed ...
  • I can't put up with the weight and longer when traveling by foot. I walked all over Rome and other Italian cities with my D7000, a 4" long 24-70 eq. zoom, and camera bag over my shoulder from ...
  • Thanks! That's reassuring. My phone almost always gets exposure right while my nikon takes extra thought and work to get exposure right. I also really appreciate HDR in my phone so I don't need to ...
  • How did your friend feel about her phone photos?  Were they just casual selfies and snapshots or is she a more serious photographer? I remember an article I saw a few years ago about, I believe, a ...
  • Replied in No
    When I travel I'm often on foot much of the time so weight and size are very important to me. If I every lens weighed no more than a few ounces and was a pancake lens (imagine a 600mm pancake!) I ...
  • traveling for pleasure to Europe, Yosemite, Glacier Nat'l Park, etc. I can see some of those places again if I screw up my pictures but someplace like Venice I may visit only once and would feel ...
  • Those are great pics- I especially like those first two! Maybe I'm too obsessed with getting technically "perfect" pictures instead of artistically good pics. In that case, a good phone camera ...
  • Thanks! I worry a lot about traveling to someplace like Venice where I may never go again taking just my phone and feeling like I got crappy pictures or I missed that one "great" (ha ha) picture ...
  • I'm used to having a 24-70(eq) zoom on my Nikon and it seems like many people do the same or have multiple lenses. The RX100V has a fixed 35mm (eq) lens. Have you found it challenging to shoot ...
  • No replies yet.
  • I guess I'm not the only one who has issues with the weight and bulk of my camera. :) My only real concern about the Sony cameras is that dpreview mentioned that they used lossy compression for ...
  • Thanks! That's exactly what I wanted to know. It sounds like your experience was really positive.
  • I hauled The Whale (D7000 and zoom) around Rome for two weeks, 12+ hours a day, walking- no car. Never again.
  • Thanks! I just did that now.
  • Created discussion thread Traveling with only a phone?
    Has anyone here traveled with only a mobile phone camera? I wonder if you'll get any yes answers to that question, and any follow-ups to the ones below. How did you feel about the results? Did you ...
  • "ultra wide angle lens, fisheye, macro or very long tele lens". For travel, though, that's not going to work for me. I hauled a D7000 and a 24-70 (eq) zoom around Rome for two weeks- had it in a ...
  • Created discussion thread Traveling with only a phone camera
    I have  a new phone with a 12mp camera which takes great pics and it even does HDR well for those high contrast days. It even shoots raw+high. I also have a nikon D7000 which takes great pics but ...
