  • Best camera for beginner photography?

    I have been set on buying the Sony Alpha A6000 as I like that it's small, and compact, however, I recently started looking at the Canon EOS Rebel T6 DSLR camera. Any other suggestions on what's good to start with? My budget is $600 or less. Thanks!

    My Canon SX530 HS does a great job at getting photos of the moon. But, when I try to take night sky pictures or pivtures of lighting during a storm, I can't get a photo. I have tried so many different settings on the camera to get a good photo the last 2 years that I have had it and nothing seems to work. I am looking for an upgrade to a Canon DSLR camera and lenses that will work best for pictures like: night sky (stars), portraits (animals & humans), lakes, bugs, etc.

  • Battle of Cameras: Which one is better, Canon G7x Mark II or Sony A5100?

    Best answer: When it comes to determining which camera is best, you first must have answer to: "best for what?" You need to know your needs which will based upon the types of photography you'll be doing.

    The G7X Mark II is, IMHO, an overpriced point-and-shoot camera. It's intended market is advanced and professional photographers who already have cameras that will meet their primary needs, but need something simple and small to bring along to parties and the like where bringing a large DSLR or even a mirrorless camera is just too big and bulky. The A5100, on the other hand, is intended for amateur & advanced photographers who want much, much more control over the image-making process than what a G7X Mark II can provide. Because the sensor is so small in the G7X Mark II, it will not have the same range of f/stops that a larger format camera will have. The focusing system in mirrorless cameras is hands down far better than anything found in a point-and-shoot camera, even one as advanced as a G7X Mark II.

    Then there's the obvious things such as being able to change lenses with the A5100, while the G7X Mark II has a fixed lens. This is a major, major difference in capabilities between these two cameras. This allows you to use lenses that are significantly sharper not to mention a larger variety of focal lengths which combine to create a photographic system that the G7X Mark II simply cannot compete with, but then again, it's not designed to compete with a camera like the A5100, but rather to complement it.

    Based upon their capabilities, and not even taking into account image quality, any mirrorless camera will be a far better camera for general photography than any point-and-shoot camera at any price.

    If video is important to you, then the A5100 will also be the better choice by a large margin.

    It's strongly recommended that you update your question with what types of photography you plan on doing and any other photographic needs you may have. While the A5100 is easily the superior camera, based upon your needs , the G7X Mark II could be a better choice for you.

    Best answer: Hey there!

    What you have is a Fuji Instax, probably a model 8.

    And the thing you're talking about is called a "wrist strap" or "camera strap."

    It is not meant to go around your neck unless you are a Barbie doll!

    There is a small cutaway with a post in it on the upper left side of the camera (when you're facing the lens).

    All you have to do is insert the string loop on the strap into that cutaway, under the post, then put the thicker woven end of the strap through that string loop and pull tight.

    I recommend buying a Fuji fitted case for the camera if you want a full-length neck strap. Here's an example:

    Here are some photos I took with my child and her Fuji Instax camera at Disney if you're interested:

    Happy shooting!

  • What is the best camera to use with Tamron AF75-300 LD (672DM)? I want a new camera body for this lense.?

    Best answer: The Tamron 75-300, like all Tamron lenses, are made at the factory with either a Canon or Nikon lens mount. Therefore your lens has one of these mounts or maybe it has a Pentax mount. Because you do not mention which mount your lens has, it's not possible to say which body would be good for you. Even more... show more
    Best answer: The Tamron 75-300, like all Tamron lenses, are made at the factory with either a Canon or Nikon lens mount. Therefore your lens has one of these mounts or maybe it has a Pentax mount. Because you do not mention which mount your lens has, it's not possible to say which body would be good for you. Even more problematic is the fact that you do not state what you want to do with the lens. As it's a 75-300 one could probably just guess that you want to shoot sports and/or wildlife.
    And to add even more vagueness to your question, you don't state a budget. Camera bodies range in price from around $300 to as much as $6,000.

    It's totally conceivable that you could end up needing a specific body *(based upon your needs and budget) that cannot accept your Tamron 75-300. In any event, there are no bad DSLRs or mirrorless cameras on the market, just ones that do not meet the specific needs of the photographer.

    Update your question with your answer to my questions and you'll get good advise, otherwise any recommendation is just a wild guess.

  • Does a waterproof camera with more than 5x optical zoom exist?

    Best answer: On a point and shoot camera, when the optical zoom starts going above 5x, (and even less than that in most cases), the aperture also closes down... usually a considerable amount.

    Best answer: On a point and shoot camera, when the optical zoom starts going above 5x, (and even less than that in most cases), the aperture also closes down... usually a considerable amount. It is just the design necessity or else the lens would have to be much larger if it was to maintain a large aperture throughout the zoom range. You NEED a large aperture in an underwater camera because the light is severely restricted. If a greater zoom was on the camera and the aperture stopped down, all your photos would be nothing but blurs because a slow shutter speed would have to be set in the dim, underwater conditions.

    As has been said, you can get a DSLR with a good, fast telephoto lens and a waterproof case, but that is an EXPENSIVE route to take. The case alone can cost $2000.
