    Oh, that is colorful, especially at dusk / night.
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    @darin The other day I had a long conversation with one of my good old friends from the Air Force, and this was the one that's the professional photographer, that his last job in the Air Force was photographer for the Thunderbirds. We talked about a lot of things but got onto the subject of photography, and after awhile I started to really regret selling my Canon 7D MkII. I do wish I hadn't given up so fast trying to figure it all out. I mean I could USE it, and did know what many of the functions were, but just didn't know what some of the things very deep and customizable were in the menus. I do find it odd why sometimes one specific function can be accessed/controlled by multiple different buttons. What's the point? I see Canon offers courses that are very reasonable for how to operate their cameras though. I'm sure with a little more patience than I had I could have figured it all out and enjoyed the camera. Even just using it, trial and error, and constantly going through the menus, I'm sure I could have gotten proficient with it. I'm pretty techie, and the menus in my home theater equipment are pretty extensive and complicated too, but I have no problem figuring that out.

    But, here we go again, I've been looking at cameras, and even looked at these back when I bought the 7D, "mirrorless" cameras. I wanted to pass this link on to you and get your opinion on this camera...

    I've been wanting to replace my little Canon Powershot SX280 HS for quite awhile now. Even though it still takes "OK" pictures, it's getting pretty dated, and my Buddy Jim recommeded that if I'm going to buy another nicer camera, to look for something with closer to, or has, around 30MP.

    Thats a good camera!

    Thing is - i use a 15 year old 8.2MP camera and i think i get very nice results. Find a 5D mk3 for $1200? Or so, used. Then get good L glass, buy the monthly subscription to adobe suite, learn Photoshop, and you will be shocked at the kind of images you can create :-)

    Well, with used (D)SLR's, shutter count is something you need to know, because it depends on if that camera has much more life left in it or not, and cameras don't come with a shutter count in the menu. You have to take it to a camera shop or have some computer app or something to find it out, because it is in the camera, you just have to dig to get it out. But like with any electronics, for me, I like to buy new. Get the warranty, get the latest tech, take care of it and don't buy anyone else's problems.

    And I have Adobe Photoshop CS5, and the book on how to use it, and my son's help from him having an Assoc Degree in Graphic Design, and that's what they used in school. Been using it for a good 15 years probably. Couldn't live without it. Couple of things it does like under "Image," then "Adjustments," then "Shadows/Highlights"... that's one of the best, handiest, most awesome little photo edits I've ever seen, and I use it quite a bit, especially for ebay images.

    FredMiranda.com forums has an excellent for-sale forum. Universally trustworthy people With most even semi-modern DSLRs rated at 200000 shutter actuations it's not hard to save 50% and get something with years and years and years of life in it. Keep digging with CS5 and shoot only in RAW and I think you'll love it

    FroKnowsPhoto on youtube is a pretty good resource, too
