I'm using to rent a telephoto lens.
I already own a Nikkor 70-200 2.8, but I'm contemplating renting something with more reach (not knowing the field/parent restrictions)
I am torn between these two....any suggestions?
1. Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G AF-S ED VR Lens - about $130
2. Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E AF-S ED VR Lens - about $80

My thought was #1 is kind of doubling up on the focal length I already have, but may save me from switching lens.
Then again, #2 can get me across the field more (as I dont know what seating will be like)

I know you're not gonna like my answer but my Sony RX10 IV 24-600 bridge camera does a great job with both video and stills at Soccer, Baseball and Basketball.

I am going to purchase a new camera in the near future. Now what I would like is help in choosing between a Canon 90D or Nikon D750. I need the pros and cons of each ans best place to purchase either one.


I am over 70 years old and my Canon was great but the larger lenses were getting heavy for me. I sold all my Canon equipment and bought a SONY RX10 IV and never looked back. 24 to 600mm and the same weight. Someone mentioned YouTube for reviews and I think that is wise but make sure the video is relatively new..Good Luck

Hi all! I am looking for suggestions on which program is best for taking a photograph and making it look like a watercolor or painting. Any suggestions? It’s just something fun I’d like to try! Thanks!

Hi Aims
I use a couple of programs including Photoshop, Light Room and another. Here are a couple of examples. I'm still learning and having fun.

Totally agree and that's one of the reasons I ditched all my Canon equipment for one camera the Sony RX10-IV and I never looked back, phased focus detection instantly 0.03, 24mm to 600mm at f2.4 -4, 24fps at 20mp, Zeiss lens etc.

Birds in flight are a challenge, even for a big heavy camera and lens combo.

I find that the Sony RX10M4 offers a blazingly fast and accurate auto focus system, capable of catching at least some birds in flight. It is not cheap, but once you start seeing your results, the sting goes away. The more you use it the faster the sting changes to a smile. I have no regrets. I was an early adopter back in 2016 when it was released. I liked the M3 version, but found the auto focus system awkward and not suitable for active subjects - luckily this was one of the things that was significantly upgraded in the M4 version. by Gene Lugo, on Flickr

I also converted to the RX10 IV and never looked back, soooo happy with it and I totally agree

I am 82 and am thinking of purchasing a lighter camera and a lighter lens capable of shooting birds in flight. I own (among several Nikon cameras and lenses,) a Canon SX 50 and a Panasonic Lumix FZ300. Both cameras have their good points, but are incapable of capturing birds in flight (at least when I am the photographer.) I would welcome your suggestions. Thank you. Davidb1879

I am 76 years old and had a similar need. I sold all of my Canon equipment and lenses for a SONY RX10 IV a great camera 24 mm to 600 mm lightning fast focus and great for capturing birds. Bridge camera one lens a bit expensive for a bridge camera but worth it
