We'll see what happens.
I have a modern smart phone with an excellent camera. It can't touch the results I get with my full frame DSLR. Not even close. Frankly it's not even close to my 10 year old canon 30D.

Agreed. One can argue that 35mm is a crop compared to medium format and bigger.

APSC and M43 have advanced a lot in the last few years.

Like others, I've been taking pictures for a long time. Haven't been able to do much in the last few years, though. And thinking about getting back into it.

I've been using a first-generation DLSR for some time now, a Pentax K100D. (I went with Pentax because it allowed me to upgrade the body while keeping the full range of lenses I had for the trusty old K1000 film camera.) Still a solid camera, and I primarily relied on the Pentax 55-300 zoom: A little noisy, but solid, too.

But now I'm considering getting back into the saddle. And maybe even a new body, too. One shortcoming of the first-gen DLSR is the ability to set ISO to a wide range. That's just plain missing from the K100D. Sure, you can adjust a little, but not a whole lot more than on the old K1000.

So I can't afford a really expensive camera, surely not a full frame or so. And I'll stick with mid-range Pentax so that lenses can move forward. Here's the one I've got on my Amazon wishlist:



Anybody want to buy it for me?

Getting back into photography, any camera geeks here to help me choose?!

Thank you guys, and gals, for all your input. I decided to go with the Hasselblad Lunar with its 18-55mm. I also bought an extra lens, 50 mm, for portraits. So we will see how this turns out📷

I am looking for a travel camera to supplant my I Phone 6 and the add on extension Lens that I purchased last fall. I am looking for a travel camera. We will be attending a reunion in Alaska and then spend a week in Denali and another at Seward. Would be taking stills of scenery but would also like to take photos of wildlife. I am currently looking at the Sony 100 lv or the a6000 which I can purchase new for 780 and comes with two lens. Any thoughts or ideas are greatly appreciated

After our 2011 Glacier Nat'l Park trip we decided hiking was fun. That trip I lugged my Nikon D40 with 18-200mm lens and a Canon HV20 camcorder. I decided I wanted a smaller/lighter camera with interchangeable lens that could do video also. Decided on the Sony NEX5n, a mirrorless camera in 2012. I have the 16mm pancake, 18-55mm and 55-210 lenses. Sony now has a lot of expensive E mount glass but I find these lenses adequate for my photographic abilities. I'm looking into upgrading to a Sony A6000. Wish I had purchased one a Xmas because the price was $398 body. Now its back up to $498. Sony has announced the A6300 but body only is $1000. The A6000 is not being discontinued. I will stick to my 5n until the A6000 goes back on sale.

I did purchase a refurbed Nikon 5100 body which can take video to use with my 18-200 but compared to the Sony it is so big and heavy. I use a Think Tank Digital Holster V2.0 with a harness so I can strap it to my chest when hiking or riding my bike. Makes it easy to grab the camera. The Sony 5n or Nikon 5100 fits in it.

I got this Sony (DSC-RX100 IV) for a trip to New Zealand. Fits in a pant pocket. Pricey but has excellent reviews and is highly capable. Outstanding results. Tiny size makes it a great travel camera.

I also like the Sony mirrowless cameras. An accessory I like is Lightroom. It has an auto correct to straighten buildings that is fantastic.

Can you turn that feature off if you're at the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

My thanks for all the responses. Unlike the movie "A Man for all Seasons". There does not appear to be a camera for all purposes. I now have to decide do I go with the Sony 100lv or the A6000 and carry an extra lens for distance. Again looking for advice
Thanks

With my ThinkTank camera holster on my chest I can carry the 55-210mm lens with me as well as the Sony 5n with 16mm lens attached plus a spare battery and polarizing filter. If I need to carry more Think Tank makes a belt that you can clip on pouches to store more lens or accessories. The A6000 is slightly larger than the 5n and should fit. I like to take mainly landscape photos. I don't find I use the 55-210mm lens much and even that is not enough reach for taking photos of wildlife. I can't afford lenses for wildlife photography so I don't bother even try photographing wildlife. The A6000 can be purchased with the 16-50mm kit lens. Some people don't like the lens but most of the photos I've seen from this lens are fine for me but I'm not an advanced photographer. I guess it depends what your activity is for taking photos which should help you choose your next camera.

One of the reasons I went with Sony mirrorless vs 4/3 is the sensor is a APS-C sized while the 4/3 is a smaller sensor but all these cameras are good. Now that I have a few Sony eMount lenses I don't want to switch ecosystems.

One of the issues I have with all the newer cameras is they have 24 or greater megapixel sensors. That means more hard drive space taken on your computer if you shoot raw and larger SD cards, more processing power is needed to run the images through a program for editing. The 5n is 16mp, A6000 24mp. I prefer to shoot raw so I can edit the photos easier. A big advantage of more MP is you can crop your photos down if you want more reach and retain detail.

I was using Aperture but Apple has discontinued it and now my photos are in Apple's Photos. I don't like the program all that much and will probably move to Lightroom eventually. The good thing about Lightroom there are lots of tutorials on youTube and elsewhere to help you learn the program.

Photography can be a money pit just like our Airstreams.

I just like to take pictures and videos when we travel. Probably the majority are landscapes such as buildings and art that is displayed in church's and museums. However I do like to take pictures of wildlife like Eagles and Hawks etc. when we are in Alaska this year I would like to be able to take wildlife photos when walking or riding. So I guess my question is: is that considered wildlife photography or is there more to the definition? Does that make sense.
