Re: Best gear for winter photography

Hi glostars, since you are not dealing with action sports, or wildlife or fast- moving children at play then if one camera “doesn’t get the captures right” I have to wonder why any other camera might do any better?
Can we start with “What were the features that suggested that the captures weren’t captured right?”
Best regards,
Dave

Just a reminder that what ever camera and lens you get make sure to get a polarizer filter for the lens. This will cancel out any reflections.

If you are not dealing with action sports, or wildlife or fast moving children at play, then do you need a camera or will your cell phone be enough? S-

I can tell you what the ladies I attempt to teach complain their cameras don't do properly:
Doesn't focus right, so subject is blurred
Blows out highlights
Makes colors duller than they should be
Makes pictures so dark you can't see anything

In every instance I've analyzed with them, the cause has been erroneous settings choices for the thing being photographed. Their cameras are excellent, but they don't yet have mastery of them.
