Hi. I have some questions because I would like to understand better how to evaluete exposure better. I know Sunny 16 rule but I could see that when I shoot on a daylight in a sunny day (I'm living in Sicily so I know that the rule can become SUNNY 22) under the shadow of a tree, using flash to fill-in something it doesn't add up. I have a Pentax K-r. I set the camera ISO 800 - F/5,6 OR F/7.1 - Shutter speed 1/125 or 1/180. Using Sunny 16 rule I should set the shutter speed as the reciprocal...

I really enjoy this setup, and have taken some nice shots for friends that earned me several bottles of wine. But I have really found trouble shooting moving people indoors. It's very hard to use tracking mode and pre-focus for me, as everything happens fast and movement is not always predictable. When using F2.0, the shallow depth of field makes it easy to take a shot of blurred face. Using smaller apertures, the higher ISO will make IQ go down (I can only accept IQ at 1600). Any...

Hello, I want some advice with what camera should I choose. My options  are Nikon D5100+18-55mm or Pentax K-r+18-55mm+50mm f1.7. It is worth giving my 500D for one of these?

I want to copy a large number of old 6x4 and 5x7 prints, obviously not to studio quality because lots are faded and poor colour anyway.  Its to have a digital record of the last 50 years of trips and people.  I have already done 3500 Kodachrome and Fujichrome slides. Scanning is too slow.  The method I am using with some success is my Pentax Kr with a nice old 50mm M lens pointing vertically down, a piece of hardboard wrong side up marked with a grid and with low tack adhesive (spraymount...

For a little while now I have been saving to buy my first DSLR. I am no where near the amount needed. However, as I have been going through somewhat of a rough patch lately, my girlfriend felt sorry for me and offered to help me out, to chear me up. My brother in laws wife own a Nikon D3200 and I have been pretty impressed with the pictures she have taken. So I decided to go for a Nikon D3300 (Fairly good review on this page). Also because I can buy it locally (Holstebro, Denmark), which is...

I know this grey/gray market thing has been beaten to death but I always find caveats. For instance, when reading Ken Rockwell's comments on the topic he issues dire warnings, even saying that Nikon DSLRs that are grey market cannot receive firmware updates... (Is that remotely truthful?) However, we must remember he makes money off of people buying cameras through the authorized retailers he advertises on his site. Therefore his opinion is tainted. Also, there are other comments out there...

Hi, everyone! Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to be thorough. Thanks for reading all the way through.... I shoot a lot of pictures of my high-school sons, in one of three main settings: Outdoors, high-school stadium lighting, in marching band. (I also shoot the football game, itself, but that's really just for fun and practice; my kids don't play football, they march in the band.) Outdoors, daytime, playing tennis Outdoors, daytime, playing Ultimate Frisbee. I have been getting by...
