I have a Canon 70D. My go to all around lens is Tamron 16-300. I’m wanting a newer / hopefully better lens and have looked into Tamron 18-400. I have Canon 70-200L 2.8 & love its pictures so much that I have enlarged & framed a few. With my Tamron, most distance photos are beautiful for my photo books but lose sharpness when I’ve tried to enlarge. I also have Canon 50mm 1.8, 18-55mm, 55-250mm, & 70-300mm. I really don’t want to continually change lenses when I travel because sometimes conditions aren’t the best for that. Should I look at another lens? Would I not zoom to 400 much because of its lack of sharpness so would a Canon 18-135 be preferable? Than you all for always helping me.

You need to include what you prefer to shoot. If it is landscape, you do not need that large of a lens. If it is wildlife, then you need the largest lens you can afford. In my opinion, you are better off concentrating on FX lenses, that way if you ever decide to upgrade your camera body to a full frame body, you will not need to reinvest in lenses. As for brand, I find matching lens brands with camera brands to be the best match for quality, that said, the Sigma Sport is a very fine lens with great reviews.

This summer I'm going on a 2-week tour of Ireland and Scotland. Space and weight are at a premium and I'm reluctant to take my D5600 and three lenses. Any suggestions on what small bridge camera I could rent and from whom ? Thanks for the help - I'm an experienced beginner !


Cell Phone. It is always with you, and the newer ones take great photos, with some having advanced settings such as zoom and aperture.

You even hear talk about folks here having made the proud decision to have traded up to the next camera, up the line … like, it's no skin of their nose. But, I'm wondering here - whether these kinds of rash decisions make any sense, at all. You all know you can NEVER EVER get back the monies you spent, originally. And, chances are - you will have had to sweeten the deal - adding some cash in to get the upgrade you want. Just seems to me, that, no matter what you're getting in exchange - just t'ain't worth it. What's your take?

If you are into photography as a business, cost is a consideration, as you need to be profitable when possible. But, if you are into photography as a hobby, it is like any other hobby, upgrading is part of the enjoyment of the hobby. That would be my opinion.

It is an interesting method of post processing, but, at first glance, they appear to have a lot of noise, and they seem to be out of focus. Upon a deeper look, I see that it is not noise, and the photo will never be sharp, as that seems to be part of the effect. I have seen others that were much sharper. I would say it is a good start, but needs some work to be effective.

I was out shooting here in Florida yesterday and all of a sudden, when I depressed the Shutter buttion, nothing happened! Tried a few times, nothing. Went back to my car, sat down and aimed at the dashboard, and Click, the Shutter button worked and captured my Dashboard! Checked all my settings and I am at a loss why my shutter button did not work properly,..then it did work.
Does anyone here have a suggestion as to what might be going on with my Nikon D3300 Camera? Is it just a setting adjustment I must make or a serious issue with my camera?
So, right now I am confused, will it again happen at a very important time and totally frustrate me as to what is causing this Shutter issue. I am a beginner, about 3 years now, still learning and will appreciate any assistance here at UHH.
Oh, first thing I checked was my Battery, it was at full power.

I do not know on the D3300, but on my Nikons, there is a setting that will not allow a shutter release if focus is not acquired. I do not remember where that setting is, but you may want to google it and set it where you do not need to have focus acquired for the shutter to release.

I have a large barrel with goldfish in it. I was wondering what’s the best way to shoot fish in a barrel. Telephoto, macro, flash, high Din, etc.


With a bow and arrow.

Hello, I put these pictures out here about 3 hours ago and they seem to have totally disappeared, so I will try it again. The first picture was taken last September with a canon t3i. The second was taken today with a new canon t7i.


I like the first one best, makes us wonder why we upgrade our cameras as much as we do. The second one is nice, I am just not a fan of partial trees, I would have liked it better if the full tree had been photographed.

Hello gang... I am a long-time UH stalker that finally would like a group response. We were burned out in the northern California Camp fire, and I am slowly rebuilding my gear, hence the excuse for 'replacing' my camera :>). For years I used a UV filter to protect my lenses from mechanical damage until a pro whom I respect said 'oh no.. that degrades your images'. But now with two shiny new lenses, how much really do I need to worry about that ? Thanks for your responses in advance !!


Trial and error. Buy an inexpensive UV filter for one of your lenses, set your camera up on a tripod, take a few pics with and without the filter, compare image quality. As long as you are not dragging your camera and equipment through the brush, I see no need for the filter, but that is up to each individual.

Thanks to everyone for the invaluable information and wonderful photos. I often want to complement or comment on photos, but rarely do because this results in my mail box becoming clogged with others’ nice comments. So, is there a way to comment on a photo without being deluged with other ones?

I've been clear from time to time, and at length that I do not currently shoot RAW. I have in the past for a 4-5 year period and used Photoshop for some time and I do not want to revisit that decision on my part. But I think I have been clear in my reasons, over time.

Someone is not happy with my decision and choose to tag me as lazy, and more than that, intimidated by the process. Here follows:

Greetings: I find your musings regarding your lack of desire or need for shooting in raw format to be devoid of any real facts except for one: the jpeg format is used primarily for sport/news photographers (who make money at their endeavors) because they often need to immediately transfer the images back to their base of operations.

The vast majority of hobbyists who decry raw format as useless, such as yourself, are simply too lazy or too intimidated by the effort involved in bringing their photography to the next level. Yes, of course it is an effort, but so was using the darkroom back in the day. I'll make the leap that you don't make money at sport/news photography, so I'll attribute your raw attitude to being both lazy AND intimidated, but most likely the later......

Shooting in raw format isn't necessary for many to enjoy photography as a hobby, but it IS required if one is interested in creating the highest quality images their brain, their effort and their gear can produce. Based on your somewhat lengthy treatise, you obviously don't aspire to that goal and that's fine.........few do. 😎

Jim"

Well Jim, for me it all boils down to personal choice. I did use a wet darkroom in the past, but eventually also gave that up in favor of mastering the camera and film, or the camera and digital capture in favor of image capture in both media. I have been abundantly clear on that..... capture in the studio and the field is much more important to me.

While I do not decry shooting RAW or Post Processing as unnecessary, and while I have seen the benefits of both, I simply choose to shoot with a properly adjusted camera and with proper media (if film) and other "capture tools".

Your point that I have done little to prove my point, I find no evidence in your PM to me to prove your point. So we drag this old bickering point onto the table again, when it truly is simply a matter of choice.

To Each his own.

While I shoot in the raw format, and enjoy post processing my photos, I can see why some people do not want the burden. What you shoot, and how you shoot, is the choice of the photographer, and anyone that criticizes someone for their choice in subject or format is a fool. Just my opinion. Stay with what makes you happy with your photos and try to not let some idiot upset you.

For those of you who carry two cameras, are both the same model or do you have two different models and why for either answer?


I carry a full frame and a cropped frame. The full frame is for landscape, and the cropped frame is for wildlife. It has worked out well for me, as I do not need to change lenses when going from landscape to wildlife, it is tough to get a quick shot of a bird or other wildlife when you need to change the lens in order to get the reach needed for a good shot.
