re: What’s the ugliest/least scenic state in the United States? - JasonL79
I’m not from North Dakota but have been here the last year for work and it’s far from the ugliest state. There are lots of open plains but the areas on the Missouri river and lakes are all scenic. And like others have mentioned the badlands are also unique and scenic. Pics taken with my iPhone so ...

[quote] I shoot a Nikon D750, with a Tamron 150-600 mm lens for these photos. They were taken at dusk, but less than 50 yards. They were run through Lightroom[/quote] Nice! That first buck is a beast. Body looks huge. ...

[quote]The issue with wildlife photos is you at normally shooting at long range and in low light. It cost money in equipment to get good photos in those conditions... [/quote] That’s what I researched also. I agree for majority of the year and in most cases. But for whitetail during the rut,...

re: Recommend a good camera - JasonL79
[quote] The Xt2 is newer and a bit more expensive. [/quote] Will have to look into this one. Looks to be $1,699 with the lens kit. Went to Best Buy here, but they were pretty limited on selection. They had Sony’s (A6300 but nothing above) but no Fuji’s. May try to find a local camera store he...

re: Recommend a good camera - JasonL79
[quote]For wildlife shots, if you are wanting high quality, fine detailed images, you will need a long focal length lens, 400mm or higher. [/quote] That’s what I was researching. Looks pricey. May look into it later after I get more comfortable with the camera I buy. Also read you probably want a...

re: Recommend a good camera - JasonL79
[quote]I read on a pro review that the Sony A6xxx series are electronic devices trying to be a camera, and that's fairly accurate[/quote] I read other reviews that knocked their menu and button setup. Any other brand recommendations in that similar price range?...

re: Recommend a good camera - JasonL79
Anyone have any experience with the Sony A-6300? Or A-6500? I had started a mirrorless camera thread on the OT but it got anchored somehow. Looking for something to take scenic and wildlife photos with. Not sure what size lens I will need? Probably for shots 50-100yds+ while hunting or hiking...

re: Mirrorless Cameras Recommendations - JasonL79
[quote]There is your problem right there. Cameras don't take good/bad pics, photographers take good/bad pics. [/quote] I think we are starting to get into semantics here. When I said good, I was talking quality of the camera and not the quality of the photographer. Like I've mentioned before...

re: Mirrorless Cameras Recommendations - JasonL79
[quote]Yeah it's difficult to get a good mirrorless and good lens for less than $1000[/quote] I’m willing to spend more than a $1,000 if I need to. Looking for something to take good pics to maybe put on the wall at home (have metal prints currently of places/scenes i’ve visited). Would also like...

[quote]Do you have previous experience with this level of camera? If not, are you willing to learn or are you more likely to just shoot on auto? [/quote] I’ve had several point and shoots. My current one is dated and I want something better quality. I’ve used a friends DSLR a few times and am wil...

Looking for some recommendations on mirrorless cameras and lenses. Looking to spend around $1,000 give or take. I was looking at DSLR cameras but the size of the mirrorless is appealing to me. Looking to take pics of outdoors scenery and wildlife mostly. Either on hiking or hunting trips. Will a...
