  • and "point and shoot" - how dangerous does that sound ?! sorry OP, its Friday Yes SD HC is limited to 32GB - cheap and plentiful, should hold at least 1000 images
  • A lens is a tool, a 15-35mm (on APS-C or full frame?) has a particular perspective on the world. One that you seem to find unhelpful in this particular application So if the tool isn't useful for ...
  • Replied in Pentax
    sorry cant figure out how to multi quote - the other comment was about go handle stuff, its often the deal maker / breaker Every brand has something to bring, I dont think there is a modern camera ...
  • Replied in Pentax
    if you are shooting outside then Pentax could be a good choice, robust and weatherproof. IBIS works with any lens, even legacy glass K3 iii is a cracking APS-C camera and there is a wealth of WR ...
  • in my view stabilisation is super useful, especially for novices who are developing good technique or in less than great light (ie indoors) but cameras didnt use to have it and folks managed - I ...
  • slightly off topic as the OP is talking about "art photography" - but sorry technical clarity is actually essential in some fields, such as dental / medical, forensics, record keeping (eg of ...
  • the marketplace can (will) still punish poor companies, the internet is ideal for that - but also ideal for manipulation. Legal processes are a last resort surely - esp as they can end up with ...

  • I dip in and out of the market, usually based on a need or change of circumstance Sometimes I go years without feeling the need for anything new - but my kit extends well back in to the 35mm era so ...
  • Interestingly the reason I got a new DSLR many years ago was precisely because we had paid a small fortune to a professional for some family shots with our new born, and they were pretty naff - ...
  • probably a bit left field but I have paired Pentax with Fujifilm - primarily because the designers seem to think like photographers, or at least like me I can swap between them easily The K1 ii is ...
  • thanks folks, really helpful to hear real life experience I already have a 1kg DSLR and a pile of lenses, including some lovely vintage manual focus - initially I wouldn't plan to buy any Fuji ...

  • lots of good advice already, the only things I might throw in the mix are my own experiences For sports I have found the "string trick" works well (though I use paracord these days) and in some ...

  • interested in this too, more for wildlife than landscape but similar concerns I have seen waterproof covers that attach to the lens cap with a strap - which is fine if your camera has one So can ...
  • can you find any YouTube videos of this in use? I bought a used tele zoom a little while ago (not the one you have), it seemed very noisy to my ears - managed to find a video of it being used on ...
