Question by ocean14: Wildlife photography – what is the best type of camera?
I already have a Panasonic Lumix which is decent, but I am going to the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador for a biology trip in May. I am a wildlife/photography freak, and I was wondering if anyone knew a better camera that is more equipped and better suited to take wildlife snapshots? so I can get the best possible pictures on this once-in-a-lifetime trip? And help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Answer by casperskitty It would help to know how much you can spend. Go to dpreview:
You can go to buying guide and choose some models to look at side by side. To get the best out of your wildlife photography, you would be looking more for an SLR. These are for anyone from an enthusiast to a professional. They use interchangeable lenses. You can also hit one of the forums on dpreview, probably beginner’s questions:
since you don’t have a preference for brand. Tell them what you want to shoot and how much you can spend on the whole set-up to begin with. I am sure you will get great help there.
I have a 35mm Canon but I am switching to Sony. Sony has the alpha line which ranges from around $ 500-3000 for the camera body. You can use older a-mount Minolta lenses on the alphas.
For the Sony alpha line, if you go with just a body and one lens, I would go with the a700 and the 18-250mm lens. Right now you can get both for about $ 1450 total. The prices are supposed to go back to normal after the Christmas sales, so I would grab one before Christmas. This camera gets up to 5 frames per second (important for moving subjects such as wildlife) and the lens has an amazing range.
If you go with Canon or Nikon, I am pretty sure the 18-250 is availale for them too. The great thing about this lens is that on a camera with an asp-csensor it still has a wide angle of 27mm and on the telephoto end it is more like 375mm.
Question by Jim: what is the best nikon compatible lens for wildlife photography?
Hi I am an amateur photographer and I am looking for the best zoom lens for wildlife photography within my budget which is £400-700. I have looked at the new os sigma 150-500mm and think it is the best choice however i want to compare it to other before I make the decision to purchase. Thank you for your help!
Answer by AS Every time I am working and need my camera repaired by a local technician, when I go in and ask him his or her opinion of lenses, I always get a thumbs up for Tamron and Tokina, and a thumbs down for Sigma. Understand that you get what you pay for. Sigma lenses may make some decent images, but there are downsides. The quality is not that great, the lens may front-focus or back-focus, the lens is built poorly, there is a lot of sample variation (so although a lens may have a decent design, Sigma doesn’t have the factory capability to produce it correctly every time on an assembly line. If you buy a Nikon lens, you can buy it and not worry. If you buy Sigma, you have to go to the store and try a few to make sure that you are getting a good sample), etc.
Your best choice is to get something like an older 300mm f/4. This lens quality will destroy anything that Sigma make.
Question by Gracie Rodriguez: are there any photography based ds games?
I love photography and was just wondering if there were any photography ds games like imagine photography or something? thanks!
Answer by Keely Chan Sadly, there really aren’t any.
There are a few Safari games for DS, that allow you to take pictures of the animals though. That’s about it
I suggest taking pictures in real life! Breathe the fresh air

Question by : What is a good lens for wildlife photography?
I have a canon 500d and I really want a lens that can reach distances but is still sharp and not too expensive. I’m really into wildlife photography but I don’t have the right lens for my digital equipment.
Answer by ed When shooting wildlife it’s important to get the biggest zoom you can afford. With the ability to zoom you can capture great shots without scaring the animals or putting yourself in danger of being attacked by more fierce creatures. Not sure what your budget is although I have found this 70-300mm lens in the link below to be pretty good!

Question by : Where in the Carribean is good for wildlife photography?
i am really into wildlife photography and am going on a trip to the Caribbean and was wondering where is a good place for wildlife photography. I have a dslr. I don’t mean like coral reef photography as i cannot take my camera into the water.. are there any good forests/jungles i could go to?
Answer by Mick No, in a word.
It’s simply too developed. You could try a couple of undeveloped places like East Point on New Providence Island, but you’re not going to get many opportunities.
If you can get down to Curacao, there’s a little lighthouse on the North West tip that’s full of interesting lizards and birds of prey and few people ever venture there. Good spot. But it’s a long way to go…
