Re: the camera you have

The problem I have with P&S is that the batteries always seem to be dead, or die shortly after firing-up the camera. Generally I use P&S when I know I want a camera, but also know I don't want to carry my D700. Then I make certain it has [more]

Re: the camera you have

So it really is "the best camera is the one you have".

Yes it actually is to the point of not having one at all. I keep my Sony P&S in the car all the time because cell phone images suck the wind by comparison. When you [more]

Re: Zoom lenses

Clone out? Can one get sensor dust spots off photos? Photoshop?

Re: Zoom lenses

I've found most audiences can stay awake for 15-30 images during a presentation. On my current two week vacation we've taken probably 1200 pictures, some will be used for HDR experimenting, others to merge into a single very large image, most will [more]

Re: Lens cleaning

DO not use compressed air on the sensor!!

Re: Lens cleaning

Re: Lens cleaning

Do no be afraid to clean it. Sometimes they clean easy with a sensor brush, other times you need to use a cleaning solution and swabs. Sometimes you push the dot around, sometimes make it worse! lol dont ask how I know. In any event the sensor AA [more]

Re: point and shoot with changeable lenses

You are going to pay a lot of money for the convenience and the picture quality will not be as good.

I'd opt for a good P&S with a fixed lens that covered most of what you need.

What is your budget and 35mm equivalent focal [more]

Oh, and believe it or not, I don't have a smartphone! Finally considering it, though. The monthly cost is what stops me.

Canon SLRs have had an audio memo feature for quite a while now, but limited to the more expensive models.
