I would give a talk about buying a telescope at my local astro club, if you look at the slides here there is a list of some things to avoid, including Bird-Jones ;)

SteelCity

Thanks to @ecuador & @joshm for the heads up on the Bird Jones stuff, new pitfall to watch out for there then. Can't blame me for posting though as at first sight seems a good deal. On Bird Jones found the following thread echoing what's been said and if you read down the posts some really useful info here: https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/183319-jones-bird-how-to-avoid-it/ Still wanting a go to one, got some Binos, had a pair of the massive ones 70mm previously and the Celestron Travel scope which was alright for the money as a starter. Binoculars are bang on for wide field views but they do get heavy. Cheers!

This is a bad telescope. The main reason is what the poster above said, that it is a "Bird Jones" design, which comes with several caveats. Normally these designs are for £50-£100 "toy" telescopes. Here, Celestron decided to try and make the cheapest possible computerised scope, sacrificing a lot in the process. It is telling that the reputable telescope dealers who sell Celestron won't touch this model. The simplest way to put it is that you are basically paying £200 for a computer system on top of a £60 telescope. Either pay a little more to get a decent computerised telescope, or get a decent non-computerised telescope (the aforementioned Heritage 130P is a great choice).

Skywatcher Heritage is better despite the lack of GoTo - in my opinion (they are releasing a 150 variant if 130 is too small for you). I’ve owned a Celestron GoTo for a while and it can be good once aligned but getting it aligned can be a real chore. Even worse, the optics on this are pretty dire. It’s a Bird Jones configuration using a spherical mirror and a lens to correct the aberrations. As opposed to a “proper” newt reflector that uses a parabolic mirror. I recommend people avoid this.

EMHUKD

Having the computer find and track stuff for you will be a big plus I imagine. I have one of the skywatcher scopes and it is awesome, but the rigmarole involved in finding anything smaller than the moon limits my use of it somewhat.

Software is the main issue rubbish auto focus miles behind the competition if your shotting mountains that dont move its a great option

More the fact that I understand most are rebranded Tamrons. I imagine they're not up there with Canon L, Sony G etc.

st203

How many lens do you need? Looks like they have quality lens at most focal lengths. Google FA lens.

anewman

The Pentax K1 looks great, but the lens lineup puts me off.

I'm looking to upgrade from a Lumix G3. I don't really take video, use the camera more for stills. Is the G7 the way to go? Or shall I look at something like the GH4? Unfortunately a G9 is a bit out of my budget range at the moment :-(

nicwatson11

Sorry gents, didn't check inbox, for photos I mainly do interior shots and multi fisheye panoramas so I use a samyang 7.5mm and the Lumix 7-14, I also use the Lumix 25mm and the kit 14-45 for video. I am trying not to get myself the g9, trying to resist.

energy80s

I have a G7, G80 and GH5 (plus a GH2 that I intend being buried with!!) The G7 and G80 are very similar as far as image quality goes, but the G80 has great IBIS and is weather sealed (if you use the right lenses). Three hundred odd quid is a good price for a G7 body, although realistically it's not worth a whole lot more. Lenses will add a few hundred more onto the price (for kit or basic primes) although an alternative would be a cheap adapter (not a Metabones!) and some old legacy lenses.

ureds

That is a superb deal. I did consider an import but being my first decent camera I bottled it and bought from John Lewis at the premium. Agree it's a good camera for its price.

polishpete

The G80/G85 is indeed better with IBIS and weather sealing. Without wishing to crow (!) I bought a new grey import G85 from eGlobal for £270 in November. It's a very capable camera.

I used to own a Pentax K1 if your serious about investing in a brand go elsewhere Pentax are way behind everyone else dont really invest in the brand and are totally ignoring mirrorless which is what I would recommend if your just starting out hard to look past Sony atm.

DF88

I wouldn't know much, I've only used Fuji mirrorless cameras I couldn't possibly be much help comparing two DSLRs. For me personally, my money would go to the Pentax without hesitation. The £100 more is worth for the weatherproofing and the IBIS alone. If you're starting in photography the Nikon might be a lot easier to use and have a better interface to practice and learn. If it does, that might be better for you. Watch some reviews and walkthroughs of both cameras, that should steer you in the right direction.

adam45417

Thanks for the info, Its a hard one... I think it mostly would be landscape photos I'd be taking but I would also like to use it for casual use too! I wonder which one would be the best all rounder? I know the Pentax comes with two lenses which would give me more scope I think? But it's £100 more?

DF88

It can be a fantastic DSLR for someone starting in landscape photography. Camera is weatherproof, it has great IQ and some very helpful features to get great landscapes(like pixelshift). For wildlife it won't be so great as one of the main underdeveloped aspects of Pentax cameras is the autofocus. Although the in body stabilisation will help, this camera will struggle with fast moving subjects and scenes like that. If the animals are not moving so fast it might do a good job. I don't have the camera but I have watched and read all kinds of reviews, so take it with a pinch of salt. Still very tempted by the deal but I cannot justify the buy for the little use I give my Fuji XT-2.

adam45417

In the market for a camera atm, I'm a beginner so was going to just buy a Nikon D5600? I like the idea of Landscape photography and also would like to use it for wildlife as awell. Which one would you chose? Or is there any other recommendations? Thanks :)

It depends on which lens holding value, that Sigma 100-300 has a good reputation, isn't that the APO version? The 43 Limited is very valuable and sought after, aboug £350-£400 worth in good condition. The FA 50mm f1.4 would get £130 or so. Times have changed since the K20, the amount of features in the K-70 is mind boggling. I've only started using pixel shift and HDR-DNG (3x RAW files merged in camera) output. The timelapse facilities are excellent, star streaming video, and various additive merging and averaging modes which imitate a big stopper filter. There is a tonne of learning with it.

Kaytranada

I scooped that deal, still havent bought a lense yet mind ..whoops

apreading

Yes, I bought the old FA 50mm F1.4 actually quite cheap when I got the *istD. Still have that, the 43mm ltd, a huge Sigma 100-300 f4, 28-70 F2.8, 17-35 and loads of other gear in a cupboard along with my P30T, MZ-S (LOOOVED that camera), *istD, K10, K20 and then it stops. Trouble is that second hand values plummeted for Pentax gear so I held onto it in case I came back, which I might one day soon. Will never use the long lenses though - micro 4/3rds much better for that but full frame better for portraiture and landscapes I think.

nocturnal74

Yes like nearly all Pentax bodies it is weather sealed and it works. I've had it at -15°C below up the mountains all day and it didn't miss a beat. My first K-30 got destroyed by water but Pentax gave me a new one completely free out of warranty period. They said it was a QC issue around the LCD screen so they replaced it. You should use Pentax Weather Resistant (WR) or All Weather (AW) lenses along with it though.

nocturnal74

No I don't find that at all. The above is a big discount and I bought other camera gear for a massive discount plus gog valuable free items along with it too. It depends what you want and knowing who does the best deal in photography which is rarely Amazon unless they make a pricing mistake. I only bought an SD card from Amazon, photography gear from photography shops. ;)

deleted339946

It's up to you. But if you want maximum image quality from your lens, remove the UV filter or any other unnecessary filters, when taking the shot. In relative terms, the £39 UV is cheap and so is the £699 lens that's being featured. They aren't high end products.

deleted86015

that has the same filter so its 'free' there as well - if you click the savings tab on the deal link it takes you to the 695 - bit odd ofc!

deleted86015

a 40-50quid filter isn't 'cheap glass' for the task it does there are 15 bits of glass inside the lens and they are more specialised averaging 46quid per element - cheap glass!

deleted339946

Of course it has an effect on picture quality. Also possible introduction of lens flare. Why put cheap "glass" on more expensive glass?

Yeah most definitely, I am thinking of upgrading to the GH5s in the new year if the Lumix S1 ends up getting released, as much as I love the GH5, the GH5s is the king of videography right now once you start using speedboosters (which I already do). Such a fantastic annoyance to have, because either way you end up with a superb camera!

PittancePincher

Thanks for pointing this out. I have had my reservations about the Panasonic AF system, if it wasn't a flawed system, I'd have snatched up a GH5s by now as it's the one to beat on everything else

iamdamien

You need good autofocus then, in that case don't go with Panasonic at this point in time, even though I personally use a GH5 I can't recommend them for anyone who needs tip top autofocus. Sony won't be beaten on that front.

ykhan16

Also looking for something to both take quality pictures and 4k video. Next years models look quite interesting.
