I have absolutely 0 experience in the Pentax system. I've been looking for a waterproof camera for a while and usually kept my eyes on Olympus TG models or similar cameras. A friend is selling a Pentax K30 + 18-55 WR + a nice kit of accessories (extra battery, bag,  memory card, remote and all the original things included in the package) for roughly 300$. I don't need the camera for diving or underwater sports, but living in Taiwan means that having a waterproof cameras I wouldn't have to...

I have made the decision to buy a Benro Tripod (TMA38CL) . The current price is listed at $410. While researching this I came across a bundle (TMA38CLV3 ) including this tripod and also the Benro V3e ballhead. This bundle is listed at $550. On it's own this ballhead (Benro V3e ) is listed at $210.  If bought individually these would be priced at $620.  So it's definitely better to buy the bundle.   Before I came across the bundle I was planning on buying the Sirui K-30x or K-40x.  After...

I've been using Vivitar 283s and 285s for thirty-some years, one on camera, others triggered by slaves, or often just an on-camera flash bounced off walls or ceiling. There is always a bit of trial and error involved in getting perfect exposure. I would like to get the best dedicated shoe mount flash I can for candid people photography. Is the Pentax AF540FGZ II my best bet, or is something from Metz or Sigma going to do the job as well or better? --Jonathan BlocherInstructor of Art, Design,...

I am planning to get a heavy super telephoto lens, Sigma 150-600mm Sport, for my Sony A7RII. My current tripod is a Sirui R-3203-N leg with K-30X ball head. Should I get the Induro GHBA Gimbal Head or Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support with Quick Release? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/655338-REG/Induro_485_000_GHBA_Gimbal_Head.html http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/554099-REG/Manfrotto_393_393_Heavy_Duty_Gimbal.html --"Keep calm and take photos"Photography enthusiast, from...
