    I was in the same boat about a year ago and as i found with tripods, the only way to decide is to buy all the options, have them in your possession and then return the ones you don't want. For me it...

    The art is a little more indepth with HDR in that prior to taking a normal photo you typically pre-visualise it before even bringing the viewfinder up to your eye. With HDR you have the same thing...

    +1 for the spider pro from me. As you said Peekayoh, can carry a gripped A900 with a 70-200 happily all day using the spider pro. I actually spent a day in London Zoo with that and the other A900...

    Haha, great explanation! I think the other thing to stress about FF is the improvement in bokeh; for the same shot (both composed the same), the togger is closer to the subject on FF and so the depth...

    Is this a discussion page or a picture of the day page? Haven't been on here for a while, so perhaps I'm in the wrong place? ;)

    I hate HDR, but I'm forcing myself to try it. I find B&W works best...

    It's probably not worth worrying too much about a pl filter for the 10-22; polarising filters work best at right angles to the sunlight, so there's only a small range of a wide angle lens that is...

    Amen to that! It is a shame the OP fell into the trap of rubbishing others though. As a fellow Sony owner (pair of A700's), I really really like them but I've never used canon or nikon and as the...

    At 6'4 I'd really recommend the Feisol. Was very light and extends to a good height. Having said that, you wouldn't have any worries with the gitzo or benro moving in the sand - it's very sturdy and...
