    I noticed that you recommended Sony, Pentax and Olympus. I, as a beginner,
    only “look” for the Canons and Nikons. Why did you said those other brands?
    Are they any better or just your opinion for that particular price range?

    Dunno, knocking on the Sony A7-series for lack of lenses right after
    peddling the Pentax K-3 seems off… At least Sony makes Full Frame
    cameras/lenses. Honestly the Sony A77ii is a better choice, better camera
    than the K-3, rugged and weather sealed, insane Autofocus performance, more
    lens selection and has a better upgrade path to Full Frame down the road.

    I’m leaning towards investing in the 70-200mm lense. . Nikon or tamron. I
    have 2 prime lenses. .50mm1.4g and 85mm 1.8g. I also have the kit 18-55vr,
    all nikon lenses. And I recently got the tamron 70-300mm vc lens. Very nice
    lense. I want to do people and pet portrait work with the hope of doing
    events. .. weddings. Is the 70-200mm a must have lense?

    Hi Spyros, FYI Pentax cameras allow (via a menu option) to specify how the
    camera reacts to the IR trigger. One press of the release can either begin
    whatever exposure you have the camera set for, inc shutter duration and the
    exposure will then end automatically; or you can elect to have the initial
    press of the trigger begin the exposure and the shutter will then remain
    open till you press the release again, just as if you held the shutter open
    with a “locked” cable release. Pentax really seem to have thought through
    their IR functionity pretty well.

    Hi, you’ve mentioned the Pentax k3 a few times in recent videos n do you
    prefer it significantly more than the new ks-1? Is the weather sealing the
    biggest difference?

    This week we’ve got questions about baby/newborn photography, what camera
    to buy for $1200-$1500, Freelensing/lens whacking, what metering mode to
    use for sports and more!

    I use a Pentax K3 and have used Pentax cameras sense the k-1000. If you can
    pick up a K-3 with a lens bundle go for it, most come with a 18 to135mm
    lens this covers a lot of room. My work horse is 24 to 70 2.8 Sigma this
    covers portraits and landscapes. Good Luck

    Hi Spyros, Hope you are feeling better. Enjoyed your Q&A this week, I’m
    going to look at the pentex K3 camera , my old 35mm pentex camera’s were
    strong. I have a question for you , I am receiving my SHP from my e-mail on
    yahoo. Should I open a e-mail site on Google+ ? Thanks DAN.B

    Perfect timing! My wife is due next week.

    I really appreciate all of your videos. You do a fantastic job of making
    photography concepts accessible to novices.

    also, I have a Pez dispenser attached to my shoe for kids to look at. Its
    easy to take a craft knife to shape the feet to fit the shoe.

    Great tips this week, thanks!!!! xx

    Another tip for photographing newborns: if the baby is going to be in any
    state of undress, turn the heat up. It has to be warm because tiny babies
    lose heat quickly.
