New Nikon P600
Have had my new P600 one day which is replacing my Canon SX50 HS. The zoom is great, Image Stabilization seems as good as the Canon. Some new features on the Nikon are also nice. Built in Wifi, the manual focus feature is more user friendly and easier to use on the Nikon, has a host of scene modes, one being the Birding mode. Everything setup like I would with my D7100. This will be a great camera for anyone one wanting to shoot wildlife or nature shots. One drawback is no shooting Raw and ...
P600 vs Fuji S1?
I've had my eyes on the announced Fuji S1 http://www.fujifilm.com/news/n140106_03.html and just this Nikon P600 announcement today. This one is being released earlier that the Fuji. which I have pre-ordered on B&H. I am very interested to see how this compares to the Fuji. The price is identical. I think one of these two will be a good compliment to the Fuji x100s for an upcoming trip to Hawaii. Looks like I will have a tough choice ahead of me.
if they made less super-zoom, like 24-800mm, but put better glass in the lens, I would be happier. for hand-held tele-1440mm shooting, the no-blurring ratio could be very low. ;-) Continue Reading
The lack of raw is a killer for me. I didn't pick up on that. I shoot raw exclusively (although I am starting to use raw+jpg on the x100s, but that's another story) and with these smaller sensors, it helps pull out as much data as possible from an image. Thanks for pointing that out. — Tony Canon EOS 5D Mark III :: Canon EOS 7D :: Canon EOS 30D :: Canon S95 :: Fuji x100s :: GoPro HERO2 Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS :: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens :: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L :: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM :: Tokina 12-24mm f/4 AT-X Pro DX II Continue Reading
Good camera with Long Zoom and Articulating Screen?
Hi! I'm looking for a good camera, but find it very difficult to find one with all the features I'm looking for. Maybe someone here can help? Brand doesn't matter, price can go up to about $500 but of course lower is better. ;-) Here are the main things I'm looking for: Smaller is better. I considered the new Nikon P600 but prefer something easier and more convenient to transport and keep handy. Long zoom (at least 20x), wide angle(24mm or wider), good macro range Articulating LCD Good resolution/quality New model (pref. 2014) Fast focus and recycle speed (I hate missing shots because the camera takes too long to get the shot, or too long between shots when not in burst mode). Gold plated and encrusted with precious stones and a price under $10.00 Okay, just kidding about that last one. Of course I want as much as possible, with the things I mentioned being priorities. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
Lumix fz200 constant f2.8 Has everything you ask for and more. I've used it daily for a year now. The zoom is incredible. I have the DMW LT 55 1.7 Tele Conv. & extension tube but rarely use it as the built in zoom is excellent. Prices have recently dropped. Continue Reading
Filter mounting capability
I'm considering one of the new super-zoom. Am pretty sure P600 can't use a polarizer filter - that's why I like FUJI - how important is it really for bridge camera's to be able to use a filter? Thanks in advance for your help.
Well, you can still hold it against the front of the lens. But certainly not as convenient as having threads. I went with the Panasonic FZ-200 because it has 1. 600mm @ f/2.8, 2. filter threads, 3. hotshoe, 4. RAW BTW, you don't need circular polarizers, cheaper linear ones work OK on any camera w/out a mirror. Continue Reading
