Best vacation DSLR under $700?
I'm going to Sweden and Iceland this summer. I own the Nikon AW100 and plan on using it for most of my pictures and videos by purchasing another battery and bringing extra memory cards. I'm curious if I should invest in something like a Canon T3i. I've never had a DSLR and the size and cost of the thing scare me for taking on a two week vacation. I've had other point and shoots, but I like the AW100 for the durability.
My questions are:
1. How hard is it to learn how to use the thing? How durable... Read more →

Should I Upgrade DSLRs?
I currently use an Olympus E-410 with three lenses and a flash unit. I do mostly air show and racing photography. I've recently been looking at the Canon EOS 60D and the Nikon D7000. Would it be a good idea to upgrade or should I stick with what I have?

Which of the D3100 and D3200 would be wisest for me to get?
Firstly, what may help your conclusion is what I'm coming from. I started off with a pair of poor 4MP Olympus point&shoot cameras, then I moved onto solely using my cellphone for photos as that was better than my cameras in every way other than zoom. Then I got the Nikon Coolpix L110, a bridge camera with 12.1MP, 15x zoom, and 720p video.
So, I haven't had a DSLR before. I'm also a stickler for brand loyalty, so please don't go about suggesting a similar Canon, I'm not interested as I haven't... Read more →

What is the best starter DSLR in $500-$750 price range?
I'm looking into getting my first DSLR and I'm trying to pick out which camera to go with. While features are nice, I don't need a surplus of camera features that I will never use. At this point, just enough features to take nice pics with, and to take advantage of what I do have.

Naturally, I'm looking at Nikon and Canon, but still am not sure which of those to go with. Any recommendations?

The major difference between a $600 beginner DSLR and a $1400 Intermediate/Pro DSLR
So I walked into Best Buy all set to drop down some benjamins on a Nikon 3100; and the sales guy talked me right out of it... I want to make this into a serious hobby and he stared me clear from any beginner setup from BOTH Canon and Nikon. So... now i'm one confused shopper with a lot of research. Can you guys go down the list of the major difference on a high end DSLR like the Nikon D7000 and the the beginner setups from both top dogs, Canon and Nikon?
Bare with my questions please. I know I... Read more →

If you could only use one lens with your DSLR, what would it be?
People have very different opinions on what the best all around lens is for a DSLR. What do you think? What lens would you choose if you could only have one?
For myself, I'd go with a 50mm prime (80mm prime when converted to full frame), or Canon's 24-105mm L lens that I wish I owned ( I like using fixed focal lengths because it takes more thought and effort to compose a shot. Obviously using a zoom gives you a lot of added flexibility but I get most... Read more →

Should I buy a DSLR? If so, what?
So I've been mulling over this for some time. My NEX-5, which is my only interchangeable-lens camera at the moment, is decent. It takes some good pictures in my limited hands, although I'm left often wanting a viewfinder for the sort of picture-taking I do use it for. And to be honest, the vast majority of my picture-taking is done by my compact cameras. So the Sony comes out for 'proper pictures' - such as they are - and I've started to think that I can probably tolerate a bigger camera without... Read more →

Why did you choose Canon/Nikon over the other?
I've narrowed my search for cameras down to the 550D or the D5100. I went through the reviews on DPReview and they both come very close to each other. They fit my needs and my budget perfectly so I'm ready to just order one of them. Before I do this though my last thing to check into is why someone might choose Nikon over Canon or the vice versa. For those of you who have used both or went through the same process why did you choose one over the other?

Nikon has revealed their new mirrorless cameras, what do you think?
Engadget ( ) has just dropped the story that Nikon has revealed two new mirrorless cameras, the V1 and J1. They look aimed more toward the amateur crowd in my opinion since they're only boasting 10MP sensors, and as Engagdet points out, an ISO limit of 3200. For that reason, I'll pass on these and wait for something a bit more high end.
What do you think? Will you be getting one?
UPDATE: As for... Read more →

Which Camera is best?
I'm in the market for a new camera, which one would you get. The Panasonic GF3, Olympus E PL-3, or the Sony NEX-C3. I also considering waiting for the successor to the NEX-5 or for Canon & Nikon's future mirror less options. I want to buy the camera around September. What do you guys recommend?
