  1. 100% agreed with you on this. Obsessed with the GH4 and 105mm AIS lens.
  2. And there are a ton of people who use Sony, Canon, and even somewhat Nikon cameras to do the same thing. Yes, crop factor and sensor size does matter, if someone wants to film with a very shallow DoF. It all depends on the kind of story they want to create and until someone actually actually creates a consumer budget level medium or large format digital camera for video, 35mm is is the largest sensor size that's within the range of some users with APS-C/Super35 being the next closest thing and readily available to a lot of consumers. Of course, this doesn't mean MFT is crap, i
  3. 1. A kit lens is quite suitable for a beginner to learn with. It offers both a reasonably wide angle and a short telephoto focal lengths. Taking the crop factor into account, an 18-55 lens is a medium zoom lens. 2. Any camera can be treated as a serious camera, depending on the person using it. There are professional photographers who uses entry level bodies like a Nikon D3#00. 3. Again, probably the dozenth time I repeat myself (feels like I'm talking to baby), while those specific lenses might be very good 105mm or 125mm focal lengths are not for every genre of photography. I'd
  4. Which specific Canon macro lens do you already own, if you have an older FD mount lens you need an adapter to use it with modern Canon DSLRs? If you already have a Canon lens, the simplest thing would be for you to buy a Canon body. You don't necessarily need to spend $800. You can get yourself a SL1 body for $400 and use your lens. Here are a list of some Canon cameras you can buy. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ns=p_PRICE_2|0&ci=6222&setNs=p_PRICE_2|0&N=4288586280+4291570227&srtclk=sort Are you taking photos of Jem? or g
  5. You want them to be looking at the camera when you take the photo or not? If you do, you have to call their attention just before you take the photo and make sure they are looking. But even then there's always those 1-2 odd people out there talking to each other that they don't hear the instructions. The larger the group, the harder it is to get every single one of them to pay attention that sometimes I feel like shoving a handheld loudspeaker right next to their ears and screaming the instructions at them. Sometimes you just have to be patient and tell them "OK, someone was loo
  6. You're pretty much in trouble with a D70 here, borrow the D7200 and if you can a f/2.8 zoom.
  7. You can replace everything... it becomes a new phone.
  8. I think I'll get an iPhone 7+, 128 or 256GB version, as my four year+ 5s' battery life is going down the drain.  But will wait a while, not really the type to adopt new releases early.

      id get the matte black, it looks stealthy and clean and nice :)

      Well I want to see it for myself in person.  I can see images on the web, but better to see in person and decide.  The 7+ becomes available around November here so I have time.  Not in a hurry.

      Yeah i love the look of the jet black, its probably the best phone on the market, but I dont use a case and I dont want it to scratch so much haha

  9. Are the teams going to be playing during the day or in the evening? If they play in the day time, what's the weather forecast (sunny clear skies or dreary overcast)? If you can borrow the D7200 from your dad, it will be better.
  10. In some cases importing from abroad will cost you more: Shipping costs VAT (and even in cases where the place you order from, e.g. B&H, which do not apply VAT on your initial payment and delivery cost, the shipping company, e.g. DHL, UPS, etc., will apply the VAT when they send you a bill later and I've found that this can sometimes be more expensive). For example, I've ordered some stuff from B&H and had them shipped to my home in Switzerland because the US prices are cheaper even after taking shipping costs and VAT into account, but still the bill I get from UPS for pay
  11. Since you captured that photo in a camera RAW format, why not process it in LR or Photoshop or any other photo editing software that supports RAW before you post it. I'd clean up a bit of the noise, level the image, and perhaps brighten it up a bit as the first few things I'd do.
  12. The Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR II is one of my favorite lenses. It's the first lens that goes into my bag whenever I plan a trip or go on assignment. Any issue with focus breathing never even crossed my mind in the seven odd years I've owned it and doubt I could ever live without it.
  13. Check my last comment, I added a list of other options. Yes they all are pricy.
  14. Well they do need to be recharged by a USB cable, I think. http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=1330 There are also devices like these, some of them are sold as empty cases where you can insert your choice of HDD. See if you can get something similar in the UK, perhaps from CVP. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/buy/Stand-Alone-Data-Storage/ci/3369/N/4000227848
