    Newbie with a Panasonic HC-X920 computing queries

    Thats a good idea - I was thinking of using an external sound recorder to try and help improve quality of audio, so that could be continuous and as you said shots interspersed of the audience or even stills could be a solution - thanks for that

    Newbie with a Panasonic HC-X920 computing queries

    Apparently the incamera formatting is only FAT32 - I tried a format on my PC to exFat, but the camera didnt recognise the card. I tried online chat with Panasonic to see if theis could be revised, which was a waste of time as they said there was nothing they could do with regard the firmware or...

    Cleaning Sensors

    When cleaning the sensor on my 5d3, I got most of the spots off which had accumulated. But there is still one which I cannot actually see. When I look at a photo taken the spot is towards the top right corner of the photo. Looking down at the sensor, where would this spot be likely to be ...

    Which lens is best for photographing the Milky Way

    I do currently have a Tamron 10-24mm zoom, but obviously its not as fast as the 2.8 and quicker prime lenses Would this still be a good starting point if I can work out the best exposure time

    Which lens is best for photographing the Milky Way

    I had thought about a 14mm, but does that not distort the perspective as often is seen in daylight photography ?

    My main camera is a 5d3, which is too heavy for my scope setup and my portable tracker hence seeking a lighter camera.

    Canon 1200d and the night skies ?

    Thinking of getting a camera modified for night photography, as I will be using both my telescope and my normal L series Canon lenses, the 1200d was suggested to me. Anyone give me feedback on which Canon camera would be best suited - I know I can get a 1200d new and modded for around £300 so...

    Canon 5dMk3 and 70D - quandry

    Another option that was suggested today was that I keep the 5dmk3 for when I have good days, and get something more compact le a Canon SX60HS for the bad days - apparently this also captures in RAW - comments please

    Canon 5dMk3 and 70D - quandry

    Intriguing comment when you say no comparison, which seems to run contrary to a lot of comparisons I have read so far. I know historically the claim that crop sensors are not as good as full frame was the case, but is it really that big a difference in this scenario? Can you tell me more on how...
