My wife just asked me today what I wanted for my birthday. I told her "maybe a nice camera". Now I have an idea what to look for. :thanks:
I did the same thing but for Christmas past. I haven’t regretted it. My son was a amateur photographer and taught me what little I know. The more I learn the more fascinating it all becomes.
The Macro lens is very popular, and a 70mmm to 200 or 300 is fun to use. Ive been enjoying my 50mm lately too.
See UA was telling me to try my 70mm-300mm to check trichomes. Using the cameras review function and zooming in on the picture you took. It helped me decide to chop.
Back in the day (before digital) I had a 28mm, 50mm, and 70-300mm. Special effects filters, tripods. Now that they're all obsolete (except the tripod), and I need to start over in the digital age. LOL. A little embarrassing since I spent 30 yrs in photolithography engineering.
I am looking forward to traveling as I get older and I wanted to take some photos. I’ve got all this time to practice, might as well be on my plants lol.
I'm with you BL! I have two Nikon bodies and four lenses, and a Canon body and two lenses for that. When digital became a thing I bought a few point and shoots until my phone had higher resolution than (if not the analog zoom of) the camera.
The phones are so darn good these days ya know? That’s why I haven’t bought one until recently.

:thumb: this takes great portraits as well. Nice tightly framed landscapes too. I can see that a 50mm would be very nice, in terms of framing.

Luiz, some folks prefer Canon. I think it’s more personal preference than quality - differnt strengths and weaknesses. I went with Nikon becasue i grew up around Nikon SLRs (well and a Hassleblad - but who can afford one of those?!). There is also a lot of interest in the new mirrorless cameras. If i’d Bought mine 6months later I might have gone for one of those. They’re very lightweight ;)

Do they have the sound effect of the mirror slamming up and down when you shoot?
They’re mirrorless, but it still makes the sound for nostalgia’s sake :slide: :19:
Haha Im kidding. The mirrorless are silent for the most part. I looked into them a couple years ago. Even had a mirrorless Sony camera picked out and all.
I felt like, for the price, the DSLR bundles were a better bargain.
They are much lighter Though, the mirrorless

My same thoughts. I took these with my phone, but am ready for something better.

I wasn't aware of these, so I think I'll look into them. Thanks!

Holy moly what kinda phone you working with Beez?! Those pics are amazing quality.
You need better than that?
Yeah hey I can see those trichomes all day. Looking through my microscope and trying to read trichomes is like having pink eye
