I consider myself as a hobbyist ever since owning a Powershot A560 when I was 13, 7 years ago. I haven't used my camera for a long time due to school, yet I would still shoot with my phone or a colleague's DSLR during school events. Recently, my phone's rear camera stopped working, and my old camera is now worn out (my brother used the camera for quite a long time), thus I'm looking for a new camera. I like to shoot in low light, thus sensor size is important. DOF also seem to be important....
Ok last question on this issue. I promise ;) After analyzing six years worth of pictures using the 18-200 on my D80, it became very apparent that despite what I "thought" the majority of my shots were taken in the following ranges: 75% between 24-120 mm 65% between 24-70 mm About 90% of the shots above 120 mm were taken at kids sporting events before I owned the 70-200. Everything else I probably could have shot by moving a little closer but didn't because I had the zoom. Additionally, I...

I have a Canon 500D body and the telephoto zoom lens I use is the Canon EF-S 55-250mm 1:4-5.6 IS. This has been adequate so far for my limited use, however this autumn I plan to go on Safari through Kruger National Park in South Africa. It is to be our honeymoon and we'll be spending 8 nights in the park. I have been advised that I would need a more powerful zoom to get more out of the trip (photographically speaking!) The lens I looked at was the Tamron 28-300mm f3.5-6.3 XR DI. This is a...

Hello everyone! This is my first post and just joined this great site :D I have been reading for a few days on the Olympus EM10 as I came across it on a technology site. It looks fantastic for my needs but I'm still not sure about it replacing my Pentax K-r (2011 budget DSLR) completely. The things I am concerned about are: Only 1/4000 shutter speed compared to the K-r's 1/6000 Only 3.5fps continuous shooting with AF compared to K-r's 6fps. Low light photos (shooting indoors for...

Hello, I have just upgraded from 10.6.8 to 10.9.1 and am trying to re-instal my plugins for PTGui Pro. I was using Enblend and Smartblend (through a program called Wine, which I believe still works on 10.9.1). I did all of this so long ago on my old computer that I've forgotten the steps and would appreciate any help. I was also using a plugin by Erik Krause for extracting and inserting floors. Does anyone know if this works with 10.9.1 as well? Any help or links appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I'm in the market for a new 35mm lens and been thinking of either getting the Sigma 35mm Art of the HD 35 and is still undecided of what to get. Since I've already tried the Sigma even on a different mount, I know what I will be getting into if I went that way but the local price is still a bit prohibitive being around US$1000 (converted to my local currency). And as of the HD 35 Limited (around US$780), I have a few questions especially for the owners with a K5II/s or K3. 1. How fast is...
