    Is there an alternative to the Leica X-U?

    Good advice. I actually have a 7d sitting around that I never use. Maybe I will just bring that.

    Is there an alternative to the Leica X-U?

    At this point, I don't think there are any rugged/waterproof cameras with an APS-C sized or greater sensor. Looks like Leica beat every other company to the punch. I guess they will be getting my $3000, even though this camera ought to be priced at $1000 if sold by any other company. The Leica...

    Is there an alternative to the Leica X-U?

    I've tested a lot of cameras, and I've never been impressed with any sensor smaller than an APS-C. For example, a lot of people rave about the Sony RX100 IV. I tested this and thought it was a piece of junk when it came to IQ. I hate to say it, but that camera seems to be hyped up by novice...

    Is there an alternative to the Leica X-U?

    There's absolutely no money in this for me. This is just purely to document the trip. I prefer to make photo books after my trips for my wife and we really enjoy high quality outcomes. So getting a camera with good IQ is important.

    Stupid camera buying question

    Lol, because people who have a lot of money don't like to spend it if they don't have to. Part of why they have a lot of money in the first place. (unless they inherited it, then ugh who knows)

    Stupid camera buying question

    Good thoughts Derrel. I would totally just buy an underwater case for my Fuji X70 but I cannot find one. Not from Ikelite, or anybody else. If anybody knows where I can get one, I would really enjoy knowing!!

    Is there an alternative to the Leica X-U?

    I own the Olympus Stylus TG-830m, and I am seriously not impressed. Sensor too small. IQ not that great as a result. Do you think the TG-4 is better? My Fuji X70 is a great travel camera. It's just too "pretty and delicate" to take to a jungle, IMO. If I don't find anything, maybe I will get...

    Thank Dave! I will check into the rain sleeves. Great shot with the poncho and huge leaf btw.

    Stupid camera buying question

    To clarify.... I don't need an underwater camera for jungles. I want one. I want the piece of mind of not having to worry about it. I want the durability. And it does not hurt to have the option to take it snorkeling.

    Stupid camera buying question

    Hi guys, I appreciate the advice. But even if Ansel Adams or Andreas Feininger said "It's not about the camera".... I still think its largely mis-construed by nearly every amateur or professional photographer who quotes it. A good camera makes a world of difference, but when you know how to use...

    Stupid camera buying question

    I have a lot of money, but I don't want to waste it. I am looking for an APS-C grade underwater, rugged, camera to take on a trip the jungle soon. The Leica X-U is the only thing that fits the bill. It has an APS-C sensor and takes quality pictures that I could frame later. perfect! But I...

    Is there an alternative to the Leica X-U?

    I am looking for a waterproof camera with an APS-C sensor or better. The only product I can find is the Leica X-U. I've never been impressed with Leica's price to value ratio. This $3000 camera seems like something you should be able to get for $1000 from any other reasonably priced brand. I...

    Best small 5d MKiii replacement for extended travel?

    Can anybody recommend the best "fun" camera (money no object) for travel? I have a 5D MKiii and various lenses, but I don't want to be super-disappointed with the IQ. Some things I am considering: 1) Camera may get stolen or pick pocketed. So I don't want to pack a Leica. 2) Camera should...

    Traveling to Europe... disappointed with Sony RX100

    I'm new to this site. I'm looking for some advice about getting a portable camera for an upcoming trip to Europe. I'm not a person who shares their photos online or does photography as a profession, but I LOVE great photos. I frame them in my home, I appreciate them and enjoy them, etc. To be...
