I think you'll get more inquiries if you at least listed the key items.

Just recently acquired my first Hasselblad. It’s a 503 cw that was cla’d by Hasselblad in 2017. I admit to still learning the basic ins and outs the camera. My question is, what is causing the winder crank to not wind forward? The lens and body are aligned. I can remove the back and wind the crank and press the release button. All good. I put the back back on and the crank will not turn. What is it I’m doing wrong?

With my older blad, if you were just firing off the shutter after you took 12 exposures (with the A-12 back) it wouldn't take "13". Couldn't be that simple right? I'm not familiar with the 503 cw.

I understand the RX10 IV to be a fine camera. But it costs $1,598.00.

I would think that at $497.99 the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 might suffice, although it only zooms at 16X from 25 to 400mm (35mm equiv) vs the Sony 24 to 600mm (35mm equiv). For more zoom the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 at $997.99 zooms 20X from 24 to 480mm (35mm equiv).

Of course, I'm just going by price and published specs. Both brands use a 1" sensor, and have a similar form factor. However, the FZ-2500 is 2.13 lbs, the FZ-1000 is only 1.72 lb, and the RX10 IV is the heaviest at 2.41 lbs.

We like our ZS 100's, don't we PH? 2nd week of shooting with it and I like it more and more each time I use it

Initially, for an SLR, I wanted to upgrade from a Yashica J7 to an Asahi Pentax. If I'm not mistaken it was because of the through the lens metering system. I had purchased the Yashica as a result of a movie. Although not the same camera as in the movie, it had interchangeable lenses.

Then, while reading a National Geographic magazine, I saw the Nikon F advertisement. That was it. I still have the J7 and it still works well. But, for 35mm format, it's been Nikon. I also had, but rarely used a Leica IIIf, which I got for my 5th birthday. I recently added a Kodak Retina, which brought the story of the Leica full circle. I still use my F along with an F5. My only regret is that Nikon has done away with the aperture ring on modern lenses.

The Retina is designed beautifully isn't it Bob? I just recently bought the Retina Ilc in perfect working condition.

We need more criteria. Pocketable? Zoom range? Sensor size? Viewfinder? Which MUST you have, which would you LIKE to have?
For mega zoom with viewfinder and hot shoe I have a Canon SX50 HS (Now SX60HS or SX70HS).
For pocketable, 1" sensor, with viewfinder and 10X zoom I have a Panasonic DMC ZS100.

I just bought a ZS 100. How do you like the image quality? I love my Canon G7X for it's 1.8/2.8 lens, but disliked no viewfinder to view photos in the sun which the ZS 100 has. I thought of returning it after reading everywhere the image quality is lacking, but this little camera is growing on me.

I ordered a camera and accessories from B&H from my mobile phone app on Tuesday morning from work. They said the estimated delivery would be Thursday. I'm thinking that I should have it at least for the weekend. Wednesday afternoon with the 4 PM mail delivery, there's my camera. True, not very far from NY to NH, but somebody jumped on the order and got it out right away. I received exactly what I ordered with no surprises. So many orders over the years, and I've yet to be disappointed. B&H is great.

Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 I had the camera in my hands. Now, yes I live in NH not far from NY, but that's still pretty impressive. And as usual everything was exactly what I had ordered with no surprises. So many orders over the years, and I've yet to be disappointed. Great company.

New to the group and looking to get back into DSLR photography. My history, started with 35mm in the late 60's, went to Canon EOS Elan with several lenses and 1000's of photos, Konica Minolta Dimage (?) which I haven't used in probably 10 years. I have a budget of around $1000 and have been looking at the Nikon D5600 with multiple lenses in refurbished to get more bang for my buck. There are multiple packages offered thru ebay from RedTag, Cameta, etc. I know to watch out for bootleg cameras with no factory support. Any of the dealers I should watch out for, be steered to or back up and start over? The more I read the more I'm confused. Now the D7500 looks like an option. I'm certainly not a pro, but more than a beginner. I enjoy nature/animal/closeup/sports photography. Recently upgraded cell phone but never been happy with what they produce and the transfer lost 3 plus years of my photographs about our full time rving. Never want to rely on one again as I'll never replace those photos. Any advice is welcomed, thanks for your input and expertise..

Wow, the old Minolta Dimage. A quirkly little 5MP camera that produced one of my sharpest 16X20 images. Sorry I got rid of it.

I will be going to a butterfly garden next week. I am not sure which one of my lenses I should take. I shoot with a Nikon D7200. I have my kit lens 55-300, a Nikon 70-300, and a Sigma 17-70. Any advice on which lens and shooting butterflies, in general, is much appreciated.

Taken at the Boston Museum of Science with Fuji's 18-135 lens, then cropped in Elements 15. No flash.
