This, and that (but all FF)

I started going back in time, via pictures, looking for my daughter’s earliest riding days. And I went all the way back to the very first time she ever sat on a horse. You can see it above, shot with my Nikon D700, and probably the trusty Tamron 28-75/2.8 Di (that lens has been the joy of many a budget conscious photographer, in all kind of mounts, for years, maybe even over a decade now, not sure when it was first introduced)

At this point I am wildly contradicted about what gear I feel like using. I need a small camera with superior high ISO output for indoor portraits, and one with fast AF and full time live view for indoor riding, and the A7 kind of sits in between but doesn’t fit either bill down pat. I’d actually fancy a dual body set up, with like a cheap 3N to slip in my purse, and an A77II with 70-200/2.8 zoom for my riders. But being broke as I am (mostly thanks to my beloved horses) that ain’t gonna happen any time soon 😉

    It is hard to find the perfect camera to fit my needs with my budget. It is even harder to find the perfect combination of cameras. Can it be cellphone+DSLR? Or do we need something in between? Considering the short life of cellphones, would it be worthwhile financially to try a cheapo phone AND a decent Point and Shot?

    Very complicated choice indeed.
