  • When I saw the title of this thread, two songs immediately popped into my head. I can't believe that neither have been mentioned already - (unless I missed it). Jackson Browne - Fountain of Sorrow ...
  • Very sorry to hear this. I hope the repair process is quick and not really expensive. My A7R4 is only 3 months old, gets used almost daily and so far, so good but I worry about the reliability of ...
  • I ordered a $30 kids camera for him. I do realized that a kid's attention span is short and there's a good chance that he won't stick with it for long, but even if this is a one time thing, I ...
  • I like that idea and it makes a lot of sense. He may have no interest at all or he may get only temporarily excited about it. Thanks for all of the responses. A lot of what has been suggested are ...
  • Actually, now that I think about it, I have a nice Lumix bridge camera that I could let him use. I just wonder if it would be too advanced for him, but I could put in in one of the auto modes and ...
  • Created discussion thread Kids and cameras
    How young do you think is too young to give a kid his or her first camera? I have a Grandson who just turned 5 and like most kids these days, he's pretty smart. I'll be meeting him and his parents ...
  • People who have never been to South Dakota don't know what a beautiful State it is. I was born and raised there but only got to the eastern side in 2014 on a family reunion trip. We passed through ...
  • Graham - Printing a short book as a trial is an excellent idea. I have looked at many of your book previews on Blurb and think they look really good. You have some really great images and you are ...
  • Thanks Graham. I just wish it wasn't such a guessing game as to how much to lift shadows etc. With the expense of printing, it's not like you can make multiple tries until you get the best possible ...
  • For those who have printed books with Blurb (or any other source). Did your photos appear as you wanted them to? I have found that highlights and shadows that look fine, or at least acceptable in ...
  • I'm not sure what the issue might be. I recently sold a camera to KEH and had a very good experience dealing with them. I did not talk to anyone personally but did my transaction totally by email. ...
  • I'm not biased toward, or prejudiced against photography practiced on either a phone or on a "real" camera but I'd have to respectfully strongly disagree with THAT statement. I suppose it comes ...
  • Replied in Outside
    Thanks for posting about this show. I will definitely be watching some of these episodes. I am not able to visit such great locations and watching these shows is the next best thing.
  • Okay - you guys are all making way too much sense. :-) I've decided to keep the Tamron. It will do everything that I need it to do. Thanks to everyone for talking me down off of the ledge. The ...
  • I guess I'm not finding anything really wrong with my T17-28. I just haven't had much shooting time with it. One reason that I am considering a 14-24 instead of the 17-20 is because I already have ...
  • Created discussion thread Thoughts on the Sigma 14-24mm Art lens
    Who owns, or has shot with a Sigma 14-24mm on a Sony? What do you think or it? Wide enough, too wide or just right? I can't decide if an ultra wide is too much of a specialty lens to add to my ...
  • Thanks for the info. I have pulled the trigger and got the Tamron 17-28. I've only taken a few shots with it so far and as far as sharpness goes, it does well. I will say that it seems to render ...
  • Another vote for the Tamron. I did the same - sold my Sony 70-200 in favor of the Tamron. The Tamron 28-200 is on my camera the majority of the time and is my favorite lens of those that I own. ...
  • I am currently strongly considering adding this lens. I have seen some reports of it not performing as well on the A7R4 (which I have) but maybe newer firmware has taken care of any past issues? ...
  • Replied in Update
    Yes, mine is the new version with the hinged door. It works well for changing the battery. If I have one complaint (and it's a small one) it is that the little round metal "wrench" is held in place ...
