Camera recommendations: Lightweight option to replace my D-SLR?
I've been a part of several photography threads in the forum and know there are some talented photographers here
I basically want to replace my Canon Rebel XSi D-SLR camera with a couple of large heavy lenses for a lightweight option.
When I travel, it is extremely uncomfortable to carry around, specially since I like to travel with a small backpack and carry-on.
I got one of these 2 years ago. It is awesome. I get great pictures for a point and shoot camera. It's waterproof and shock proof so I don't have to worr about banging it around or getting it covered in snow or water when hiking. Video shoots well too. A little bulky bit it fits in m pockets, compared to dslr it's nothing.
Thanks for the recommend Argo,
I was actually looking for a manual focus that would have the same SLR functions...
I already have a Point and shoot, but was looking for something in between.
My gf got a Sony NEX-5N for X-mas, and it is bad ass. We just don't really know how to use it yet, other than putting it in the auto modes we want (such as the portrait mode which focuses on a person and makes everything else blurry in the background).
I really want a Canon G12. Easy transition since you're shooting with a Canon Rebel right now.
Yes, definitely considered the G12... but after buying Canon, I always wanted to switch over to Nikon. It seemed like the pros use Nikon.
Yesterday the P7100 arrived! I am very impressed, except for on thing. My favorite shooting method is lowering the f-counts and blur the backgrounds while focusing on a single item.
However, this camera will not allow me to set low aperture when zooming in.
Anybody know why?
