by Patrick Murphy 4 years ago
If you're outdoors the 14-140 is a nice choice. It's got a nice range from wide angle to telephoto. It's Achilles Heel is that it's pretty slow, but that shouldn't matter much outside. It's also relat

Re: New camera shortlist - looking for advice

It really depends on what type of shooting you will be doing. If you are shooting a lot of interviews and b-roll and you know your way around a camera, you'll be happy with a DSLR. It's not the most c
