Haresfur, did you get that PS recently?



(Feel bad hijacking the thread like this, yet eating up the advice!)




I think it was almost 10 years ago (already?) It's an SX-60 and it looks like they do an SX-70 now. Frankly, I haven't been using it much recently. The photo editing software I use didn't handle the lens properly at wide angle so I'd have to convert to tiff with Canon's software, which was annoying. I think the newest version might be ok. The new "AI sharpening" seems to help, but of course isn't as good as the real thing.

I'll try to put a couple of examples on the photos I took thread to show you but my photo library is on a different computer. The zoom really is awesome, though. Better than binoculars.

The camera I currently have is a Canon PowerShot SX60 HS. I like it for it's relatively light weight, long rechargable battery life, 65x zoom lens, and while I use the viewfinder for landscape and wildlife, I like the swivel display for macro shots where I can't get my head where I want the camera to be for the shot. Bought it used for a under $300, the most I spend on toys for myself. picture quality isn't as good as with better cameras, but I'm mostly happy with the results.

The one on the left is a 3 years old EOS I purchased with the subpar 'telephoto' lense.
Lil Powershot on the Right is the 2004 gem I got so many great shots with. Lightweight and the lens did the job beautifully.
Bit the dust  in 2015. Miss that camera. But can't part with it. (Please tell me I'm not the only one)
Seems as though the EOS model just doesn't have a better telephoto lens. Do I hafta go EF model (?) to get one?

 mirrorless cameras 

I used my daughter's entry-level Canon dSLR over the weekend and the *clunk* of the mirror seems outrageous... way more pronounced than my old film Nikon. I am sure it's picked up by the telephoto. But I enjoyed it enough that now I'm looking at an entry-level mirrorless. Would vastly prefer one with controls you can set by feel rather than booping a button 14 times until the display says what you want it to say, but I'm sure those are fiction.

Excellent point. I had a little Canon powershot back in the day, didn't know they've come so far. I do appreciate a 35 mm SLR, perhaps with a smaller zoom. Wanting to stay 'mid-range' not lense heavy. The shots I've posted here lately are from my cell (with some serious PS touches)  Very grateful for this info!

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T100 DSLR.  One reason I wanted a DSLR instead of other digital cameras, is that they have a true, through-lens viewfinder like my 35mm cameras do - I never liked taking photos by looking at the little screen on the back of the camera.  It has auto settings for shutter speeds, aperture, ISO/ASA, pre-sets for landscape, indoor, portrait, etc. and auto-focus, but all of those features can be manually overridden, as if you're using a 35mm. The EOS Rebel cameras start around $400.00. from what I've seen, and they are light and relatively small.  They usually come with an 18-55mm lens - which has modest zoom and macro capabilities, but not telephoto.  Canon telephoto lenses for the Canon EF cameras start around $200.00, knock-off are less obviously, but they may not have auto-focus capabilities.  I generally keep a Canon 50mm. lens on it.
Most of the people I know who are more "serious" about photography - or happen to be professional photographers - use Nikons for digital photography.
