Title: Wanted Camera to buy
Post by: ZuluBoy on November 13, 2014, 11:16:21 pm
I would like to buy a new camera. I have no idea to look for in a camera as I am only a beginner. I would like to take photo's of my findings along the road, my climbing expeditions and people I meet. Could anyone offer advice...‪#‎pleasehelp‬

I am a professional photographer.... but since I have my SAMSUNG GALAXY Note 3 I only use it when I am riding.
Reason - It becomes a schlep to stop.  Take off the helmet and gloves.  Get the camera out and take a shot.  Get all the stuff packed a way and dressed and 1km further you stop again.

So it all depends on what you want to shoot and how often.

For quick pics I now prefer a mik an druk concept.  If I go out and plan to shoot certain things I would ride to there and then get my Canon 5Dii with L lenses out.

So start off by deciding how often you want to stop and take a photo and how good that photo must be.  If you look at most of my Ride Reports I took photos with a small camera or either my I Phone or the Samsung.

No issue with quality
