Not sure if anyone is checking this thread but.... I want to get a mid range camera for travel, and the Lumix GX85 for $600 with lens seems like a done deal. Dual stabilization, weather sealing, evf, tilt screen, usb charging, wifi, flash, 4k 30p. If I want that all that with a larger sensor I'll need to jump up to a $1500 a6500. gx85 worth it?

so which did you go with? the gx85 looks serious with that many features crammed into that price point

also this place looks way different now

This thread was struggling already, now with the forum update it is not looking good.

I am struggling with focusing on the shots I want to get. Using a Canon 5D3 which I moved to from the 6D because of the lag from focus to releasing the shutter.

So I took my 5 year old son and 3 year old niece to a little carnival thing last weekend and was having trouble getting proper focus on a ride. It wasn’t a fast moving ride but my time to focus as the hit the apex of the ride was very short. The sun was setting so I kept the aperture setting between 1.2 and 5.6. At 5.6 the shutter speed was leading to blurry images (50mm f1.2, no IS) and the wider end of settings had the focus on the front of the little car or missing the kids heads and focusing somewhere behind them. At f2.5-f4.0 it was better but still not focusing on the kids.

The autofocus menus on the 5D3 are a bit overwhelming. Any suggestions on how to get better at this? I have a tutorial for shooting birds but it is long and confusing.

I know this is an old post, but why not? Dagamus, the AF system on the 5D3 is definitely robust -- I think there's five different AF modes you can cycle through for when you're moving around or shooting things that are moving around a lot. There's lots of tutorials out and about that can help you with the AF system.

Are you using back button focus or half shutter press?

Also, looks like I might be getting me an 85 f/1.4L IS tomorrow. You know, for the camera I've taken out of my closet once this year so far, but that's gonna be changing lot with the kiddo.

oh yeah, we had a baby in January. Also, I'm back.

Recently made the jump to Full frame..
Upgraded to a D800 from a D5300 I learned on, and maybe it's just me but using the D800 is WAY easier than using the D5300...

Really excited for saturday as it's supposed to be fairly nice out, and I'm going to take pictures at my local Cars & Coffee as well as the Auto show..
Car photography is like the only thing I've been constantly shooting since I Bought the D5300 4 years ago.


These are just some random shots I got with the D800 a few weeks ago.
Was the first time I used it, and I was using a Vivitar Series 1 28-90...a lens which was absolute garbage on my D5300, which I'm guessing is probably because it lacked a LPF?
