I have had the X5 for some time but I still have problems with the settings menu. Canon made it worse with the 300 pp manual and the Quick Guide is not detailed enough. I have problems finding exactly how to change some settings in Creative modes, there are different buttons to press and the wheel works sometimes, sometimes not or unexpectedly. Some functions appear to be only accessible after pressing the "Q" button but this seem s to work only once and I have to start all over again. Not...

To start off, I first began learning photography with a Pentax X5 (point and shoot). I used this for about a year until I eagerly bought my first entry-level camera, which was the T5i. At the time, I felt this was the best camera for me because it was within my budget and easy to use. I haven enjoyed my T5i.

DNG files into Lightroom and played around with them and then exported them as .TIFF files then imported those .TIFF files into MAGIX Edit Pro 2016 (I am using that program as I was a free giveaway with...
I am a photographer who loves drones and aerial angles. I have had a DJI Inspire1 until recently when it met a premature demise with a DJI X5 Camera and a nice Olympus 12mm lens attached as it collided with a power line I missed seeing. Right as this happened... NAB was going on and the new DJI Matrice M600 was announced. So, I ordered one. With the gimbal ill be able to point my A7R2 anywhere... but the real question is how do I control it. There is a little remote stop start module that...
