Just FYI to the Fuji users here, there's new firmware to support the new lenses, and some upcoming AF improvements.

post #202 of 636

Hey, I'm looking to buy a camera in the $200 range.

It will mainly be for taking pictures of stuff in my room to sell on ebay and B&S, so things like portability, zoom, and ability to take pictures of moving objects aren't important.

So what camera(s) will give me the best quality pictures at around $200? (I can go a little higher if it's really worth it.)

post #203 of 636
^ am sure you can find something on amazon that's suitable, maybe an older canon s90 or pana lx5 ? those give very good results and can surely be found on sale now that newer models are out ...

DSLR #slavestotheLCD :-p


in hopes of doing some nighttime long-exposure shots, i picked up an after-market IR shutter release and a Voigtländer 15mm f/4.5 Cosina Super-Wide Heliar , supposedly very sharp and with a 110deg field of view.

What shah suggested or an olympus e-pm1 with sigma 19 or 30 mm lens would run you about $250 and give you significantly better IQ

If you're wondering where the strap came from, and if I paid an arm or a leg for it, no. I was able to find it on Etsy for just $50. The leather is thick and sturdy so you know that your expensive camera will be safe and won't just fly off while carrying it one day. I've had it for a few weeks now and I love how the leather is starting to darken a bit.

Have Fujifilm Xe-1 /w 18-55 in silver and black coming in a couple of days. My first first nice camera outside of canon point in shoot. Novice user here. That is a nice strap, thinking I might pick that up, anybody know a company that make half cases in that type of leather? Couldn't find any of the net. Thinking of grabbing the strap from etsy and half case from Kazahttp://www.kaza-deluxe.com/detail.php?id=176 in black. Not sure if that will look bad
post #208 of 636

I'd match the colour of the strap with the half case if I were you.

post #209 of 636
Yeah I would want them to match, but i like the etsy strap b/c it will age. Wish they made a half case like that.

FYI there are some nice Roberu straps on sale at Carson Street right now.
