  • I have a Sony SEL 18-200 lens (the silver, older version)   that is used on both a Sony Nex 5 (silver) and a Sony Alpha 6300 (black).    So one rig is silver/silver, the other black/silver.  Each ...
  • Checking 'good riddance' would come across as more adversarial than I choose to be for the purposes of this discussion, but I will not be returning to film. I am old fashioned (and old) enough to ...
  • My favorite lens in the SEL 18-200mm (the chrome one).     The short end is wide enough (35mm = 27mm) to handle my wide angle needs, and the long end (= 300mm) gives me the reach I find I ...
  • I started with film in the late '60s.    I was using all 35mm manual cameras, external meters, and prime lenses, so there was/is no mystique to me in using manual control.  Other than classes ...
  • The Canon Powershot D30 has been discontinued for several years, and Canon have not brought out a replacement.     That is all the B&H website says.    You can still purchase one via Amazon, new ...
  • I have been a car guy all my life.   I started in photography in the late '60s, so I have time in that too. I have never compared the two until this question came up.    Both can be immensely ...
  • Here is a shot from one of our fires last year.    I chose this one because it shows the water bomber and the fire it is working.     From what I read on local news coverage last year, these are ...
  • Since photography is a hobby, I don't need a camera at all.     But since I want to pursue this hobby (along with too many others), I do have to acquire the necessary equipment.  The key word here ...
  • I have full frame, APS-C, and small sensor gear.     I got the APS-C equipment after I had acquired full frame, as I wanted something to bridge the gap between full frame and small sensor.    I ...
  • Replied in Too niche
    I have a TG-4, along with several other small sensor cameras, some tough, some are what is termed 'travel compacts'.     I started digital photography with a small sensor camera.    From the ...
  • For me the external stimuli which trigger the internal inspiration are the subject(s) I desire or intend to photograph.   I live in a remote and beautiful mountain area so I am surrounded by ...
  • For me there is no relationship between the two.     Inspiration comes from within.     The camera is the tool by which I realize that inspiration.     I adjust to the different feel of different ...
  • I have a TCON-T01 telephoto lens that I use on my TG-4.    As far as I can tell, setting the camera menu for this lens only extends the integral lens to its longest setting, thereby eliminating ...
  • As you have seen, everyone has their own individual approach and thus preferences.    I have certain genres of photography in which I have great interest (scenic and transportation) and genres in ...
  • I have never purchased a camera based on looks alone.    In my mind, the best looking 35mm film cameras were the Nikon SP rangefinder and the Nikon F SLR (with the plain pentaprism).    Despite ...
  • I have two different camera systems, plus additional cameras I have purchased for specific uses (adverse environments).     In addition I have been given several cameras by friends who have gone ...
  • Rae123, I think you are out of luck.   I have had no experience in this area.    I have read some accounts of others attempting to resuscitate a drowned camera.    These usually revolve around ...
  • For me, the final product of my photography is the print (a habit from my film days).   I do my own printing rather than outsourcing.     That way I have control over the entire process.      The ...
  • That is an inappropriately callous reaction and comment.     The decedent, Richard Ragland (if I correctly understood it on the video), was on a raft trip with his friends, a completely innocent ...
  • Re:  "...cut to the chase....".    I have not had this happen to me that I can recall, probably because I am such an engaging raconteur (he stated with all the modesty he could muster), but I am ...
