Concert Pics`

Attended a Kansas concert Friday evening. Restrictions on cameras are as follows: No professional cameras (a meaningless restriction given modern technology). No detachable lens cameras. Lens cannot extend more than 3 inches beyond the body. No flash photography. So I took the RX1. The perfect crime...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

So glad you guys chimed in. We need more of this. All the best. JT P.S. I joined a photography club a few years back. It only lasted for a year but the one thing I noticed was that many of the members were engineers. Why do engineers love photography? I think I know the answer but would love to hear...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

That a77ii is a remarkable camera. It has better auto focus than the a99. The Minolta way was to introduce new technology in the 7 and then have it show up in the 9. That method was continued by Sony. Plus, put the Tamron 150-600mm on the a77ii and you have great reach without cropping. For vacation...

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

Don't know your circumstance for this image. I tend to take 2 cameras for vacations and or specific venues or shoots. It's the 24-105mm if i am walking around with a camera hanging from my neck. You are fortunate to have 42 megapixels at your disposal. I am stuck at 24. Concert next week. Cameras no...

Better bring the family along to help you carry that weight. Just like old times. Well, not so old times.

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

I think that lens makes the most sense for that venue. My Sigma 24-105 would be nice but it is only f4.o. I had assumed that was the lens I would take but I wanted to try the 2 camera method.

Re: 2 Cameras at the Auto Show

Cropping would not have suited my needs at the auto show. https://a4.pbase.com/g11/64/511964/2/168791673.BCWU3hKa.jpg The question came to mind after reviewing some of your Panama Canal images (which I enjoyed). I imagined the difficulty of having the wrong lens on the camera when a particular shot ...

Re: Laguna Miscanti, Antofagosta, Chile

Been thinking about that last image for days now. It has got to be the best family vacation shot I have ever seen.
I hope the kids get a big print.

2 Cameras at the Auto Show

Building on our discussion of whether to carry 2 cameras versus changing lenses, I offer the following thoughts. Went to the Baltimore Auto Show on the 8th. I knew the lighting would be a challenge and a large zoom would not do. I would also need something wide for full car shots. And, I didn't want...

Re: A man, A plan, A canal - Panama

Well stated Sury. Having been up against the same challenges, I thought it would be helpful to get some detail on your thinking. Of course, there is always the possibility of carrying two cameras, which is how I solved the problem of travel photography. That brings it's own set of problems but for m...

Re: A man, A plan, A canal - Panama

Interesting.
I see that you were carrying the 70-400mm lens. Would you still use that lens if you had a second crack at this location?
