you need thisIf you go on a trek then you'd want candids of your group, landscapes and wildlife. Where is the choosing not to in that?
Thanks for your thoughts.If you want to take photography seriously, choosing a camera/lens highly dependent on the type of photography you want to do.
you have to make a choice on what you want to shoot, or in other works "choose what you don't want to shoot".
for example wild life requires high speed and high focal length cameras where as portraiture requires other stuff. Street photography requires something different.
journalism requires some other type of gear.
Changing lenses is pretty straight forward if you know how to clean your stuff. cleaning camera sensor and lenses in mirrorless is pretty straight forward if you have the right gear like dry brush and proper solvents. for example I use a dry brush(compressed inert air can) instead of rocket blower, contact lens cleaning fluid, ear buds and cheap toilet paper (toilet paper was the best lint free stuff I found after few experiments)
Also powerful led torch
if you cant do this, its better you dont change lenses often.
A lot... Bigger sensor gets more light (fstop), shallow depth of field. for example if you take a 50mm f1.8 lens on a APSC, it would be equivalent to 85mm f3.0 which makes a lot of difference on the image. This effect amplifies at higher focal lengths as they need a lot of light to get decent shots. at the same time, for bigger sensors you cannot use smaller lenses, due to image circle. that is if you use a MFT lens on a full frame camera with adapter, you will get severe vignetting and useless image.Will 2 identical focal lengths (35mm equivalents) from 2 cameras with different sensor sizes result in the same field/angle of view/magnification?
For that kind of thing the higher end travel zoom category (which have PASM & raw) is the best bet. Not as bulky as the bridge cameras but nearly as much zoom. You will have to give up on the better ISO/low light capabilities/stabilization that you would get from the other enthusiast compacts though.As you can see from the scenario I've put forth, it's not so much about being serious about any particular aspect of photography, in this case. Rather, it's more about getting a good all-round device with decent iq.
Too bad it's not digital
I understand. I was trying to confirm that the field of view/angle of view/zoom/magnification is the same. The idea of "converting" to 35mm equiv focal lengths is to have an idea of the fov, irrespective of sensor size, iinm. Just wanted to know whether that holds true in practice as well.A lot... Bigger sensor gets more light (fstop), shallow depth of field.
Please share an example/s of any such camera/s available in India. Most travel zooms I've come across do not offer either pasm or raw.For that kind of thing the higher end travel zoom category (which have PASM & raw) is the best bet. Not as bulky as the bridge cameras but nearly as much zoom. You will have to give up on the better ISO/low light capabilities/stabilization that you would get from the other enthusiast compacts though.
