    Looking for a zoom lens

    Sigma & Tamron alternatives are good but Nikon ones are best in terms of sharpness and all other things. Basically in case of lenses, the more you pay better you get. Nikon 70-300 is the best zoom lens in its range. I do not require more than 200mm for landscape photography. If you also think...

    High End Compact Camera Or Entry Level DSLR

    Low f numbers mean large aperture which means shallow depth of field. Also S95 has a good low light response. So this is a perfect P&S for portraits and macro photography. On the other hand, as it has a very low zoom, hence it is not so good for travel photos. Now it's your choice. For...

    Nikon D-SLR buying advice.

    @Sujoyp Thanks for reply. As I like landscape photography, so that bag is enough for me. Separate flash units are not required, so I can use that place for another lens. I too have a 50 prime. Until now I was using kit 18-55 & 55-200 along with my brother's D3000. Now I bought my own D90 and...

    Suggestions for Camera in Range of 300 USD from USA

    @Sujoyp You are correct. This seems better. I remember I was surprised to see the photos shot from this camera in flicker in recent past. It is highly recommended. Forget about tripod. I've seen very little instance of carrying tripod other than photography enthusiasts. Although it is always...

    Suggestion for canon camera.

    I personally like Canon P&S over others. For buying low budget cameras, IS (Image stabilization) is must. Megapixel doesn't matter so try to get lowest megapixel one which will save money. Check if you can find 3200 IS.

    Suggestions for Camera in Range of 300 USD from USA

    The megapixel and optical zoom in Point & Shoot cameras are simple marketing gimmicks. On zooming, the sharpness of the photo decreases drastically. Even it becomes very difficult to focus the object for a P&S camera. In DSLRs zooming is lot more easy and suffers very little drop in sharpness...

    High End Compact Camera Or Entry Level DSLR

    I do not understand why you are thinking about 2nd hand one when 1000D will come within your budget. I don't think it is time to opt for 2nd hand lenses as you will not be able to judge the problem it may have. That 18-55 kit lens will cover everything other than zoom. For budget constraints you...

    High End Compact Camera Or Entry Level DSLR

    Have you seen any photo shot from DSLR with kit lens? have you compared those photos with a P&S photo? See, the image sensor of even entry level DSLRs are much larger than highest P&S cameras and there is no comparison between them considering the depth & color representation. DSLRs are way...

    Buying a camera this diwali

    The price of entry level DSLRs have gone down drastically - Nikon D3000 with 18-55mm lens - Rs. 21-22k. So I think there is no point going for digicams with a budget of 15k. DSLRs have large sensors and the image quality is far better. Stretch your budget and go for DSLRs. You can buy zoom...

    Music & Movie Box: Please review the rig

    I heard that 1 TBs are more prone to crash. So decided that I will go for another 500GB if the existing one is used up. I went for 4GB as I have to install a highly resource hungry Portal server. Check my first post. I haven't seen Asus Xonar DX listed in Primeabgb website. Techshop has it...
