• Camera that has been 'customer returned'?

    I found a camera that I like, for a cheaper price. It is cheaper because it is "untested, customer return" Does that mean it is faulty , or the previous customer just didn't like it? Thank you

  • Digitalising an old 35mm?

    I have an old minolta, and I've been thinking about digitalising it. My best idea is to get a miniature camera (which you can get for cheap on ebay), take it apart, replace the shutter trigger (on the mini camera) with a light sensor, so everytime light is detected it takes a photo.

    Okay so basically, I have been wanting to buy the perfect DSLR camera for my passion of photography and also for my a level art coursework, however I’m not very experienced in the sense of finding the perfect camera. I’m on a slight budget of about £400 for the camera since I’m in full time education and only have a part time job. So I need help finding a DSLR which takes great quality photos (the clearer the better), also comes with a camera lens, and I would prefer for it to have WiFi so that I can send photos to my Mac or my phone. Thank you to anyone that helps!! (Also this is random but I have a MacBook which only has USB-C ports, so I can’t put in an SD card or a USB cable, so does anyone have any recommendations on how I can deal with this issue?)

  • I dropped my leica d- lux camera and the lens now cannot retract and the base is bent. Is it repairable and if so, how much will it cost?

    Best answer: Check your home contents insurance - you may be able to claim for the cost of the repair. If not, contact Leica directly - if you go via a camera shop they'll add their own markup to the price.

  • What do you think I should buy for portraits and indoor wedding reception video? (Canon 50mm f1.4 or 80mm f1.8)?

    I am shooting on a Canon 80D (crop sensor) which means the focal length (rather the field of view) will be similar to 80mm and 135mm on a full frame camera.

  • Which camera is better: An old General Imaging x500 Digital Camera or an iPhone 7 front camera?

    It looks like an iPhone only offers 7 MP while this camera boasts 16 MP but this camera is so old and looks worse at least on its own screen. I’m confused

  • I just bought my first Digital Camera. Nikon D70 61 MP DSLR was that a good selection if not why not.?

    Best answer: Excellent! What I love about it is its ability to AF with any autofocus F-mount lens even if its not AF-S or AF-I. I also appreciate the two wheels, one each for aperture and shutter control. What I hate about it is the tendency to misread CF cards. I opened up mine (bought secondhand) and discovered the ribbon... show more

What I hate about it is the tendency to misread CF cards. I opened up mine (bought secondhand) and discovered the ribbon cable was loose (lock was already broken) so I reinserted it back and taped it in place. So far, so good. I m planning to buy a second D70 to take over the duties of my flash-disabled D50 which I plan to convert to IR.

  • I just cant choose between the sl2 and the t7i?

    Best answer: You REALLY REALLY need to get to a camera store and physically hold each camera in your hand(s). The main claim to fame for the SL2, (and previous SL1 which I have), is small size. The size and weight difference between the SL2 and the T71 is considerable. If you are planning on keeping the camera with you a lot... show more

If you are planning on keeping the camera with you a lot during traveling, the smaller size and weight of the SL2 could be extremely important to you, far more than focus points.

  • Will wearing hats, hoodies and sunglasses really make public cameras unable to recognize me or scan my face?

    Best answer: Most public cameras are just that, cameras! If they need to run it through facial recognition software the footage usually has to be removed to another location to do that.

    Best answer: Most public cameras are just that, cameras! If they need to run it through facial recognition software the footage usually has to be removed to another location to do that. When using facial recognition the agencies doing it are already using a database that only contains "persons of interest".

    If your face can be seen it can be run though the software!
    So if you are caught face on, but wearing a hat or hoodie it'll still have a very good probability of recognising you.
    Sunglasses on their own still allow enough of your features to be seen to generate possible matches.
    To completely fool the software you would need to be wearing a padded ski mask and goggles!

    Be aware that it ain't anything like the movies, but this software does exist!
