OK. So I have $800 dollars to spend on a camera and after searching & searching online I've decided that the Sony seems the best. My friend also owns one. But, seeing as the Sony A58 is coming out in a week or two I thought of buying it instead of the A57. My questions are what about lenses? Is a plastic lense mount bad? (saw people were complaining about the A58 having a plastic lense mount), should I go with the Sony A57/A58 or should I look into something else? I have looked into a Nikon...
Hi! Honestly I have no clue what camera to buy. I only want to spend about $850 on a camera and might go a TAD bit higher if I must for a better quality camera. I do know that the lenses are more important than the body, and I also know that it is not just the camera but the person who takes the photo's. So no matter how good the camera may be, it's up to the person taking the photo to make it look amazing. I listed three camera's I've found in my price-range up in the title but am definitely...
My ancient K100D was stolen and insurance has luckily replaced it with a brand new K30! However I can not get it to work like either the K100 or my K7: When using flash, either popup or the Metz 58 AF2 I have noticed the following issues (others I am sure) using the 18-55WR: Av consistently sets the shutter speed low. At 55mm shutter speed is 1/40 zooming out to 18 it drops to 1/15. Changing aperture or ISO does nothing to these shutterspeeds selected by the camera. With flash down, it...
Hi, I'm looking to buy a camera for about $800-850. I really want one that takes, obviously, amazing pictures but also has video. I really want to take travel shots, low-light, kids and video. I have no clue what one to buy, as I've tried to choose between the three I think they all seem equal. Some have something the other one doesn't and vice versa. I also noticed in a video from youtube that the Nikon doesn't capture the true color of the subject as well as the Pentax does. But is that...

Hi All, Yesterday I posted a question to help choose between k30 and d5200. And now, thanks to some detailed replies, I've decided to go for the nikon. However, going through more details & reviews, I'm now confused between the D5200 & D7000! I understand that the D5200 has the better sensor, But the D7000 has more features. Both are similarly priced and fit my budget. Which one do you'll suggest? and why?
Hi All, I am considering to buy either a pentax k30 or a nikon d5200 as my first DSLR. I was hoping I could get some expert opinions on both of these cameras and how do they compare against each other. I would have avoided to post this question, but I wasn't able to find a good comparison between the two cameras. Living in Dubai, I probably will spend much of my time learning photography by shooting buildings, architecture and such. As I live in a region heavily tilted towards Nikon &...
