Good idea. I'll read owners book to see how big.
Flybob, it's a two week Alaskan cruise/train ride. Not really wanting to haul a laptop around, but I have 32 g card in my phone and I have a card reader. Gonna see if I can get the pictures to the phones sd card. Got spare SD cards too. Thanks.

I am just a Beginning Photographer, so my photos aren't that good.

What camera(s) do you use ?
What lenses, filters, etc.
Got any good do's or do not's (I've got plenty of the latter to share) to pass along ?

To get things started, for the last 10 years or so I've been using a Nikon D50 SLR. It's an entry level camera but it's far more capable than the guy standing behind it.

Lenses consist of the 18-55mm zoom lens that comes with the kit. I've heard "serious" photographers talk down about that lens but it's taken some awfully nice pictures for me over the years.
A 70-300 zoom lens does critter duty so that the next time I'm dangerously, stupidly close to a bear the photo doesn't eventually look like a fuzzy black dot 400 yards away. Better yet, I won't have to get dangerously, stupidly close to a bear to get a good shot.
And recently, I bought a 50mm prime lens (for non-SLR users, "prime" means it's not a zoom lens) with a wider aperture (f1.8) that I hope to use for night landscape photography.

I'll post up a few examples I've found recently that could have been much better shots had I been watching more closely or used something different.

I'm an SLR shooter, but I hope the point-and-shooters and even video-cammers will chime in.

I just came across this thread, glad I did. I am new to digital photography, having been an avid film user for many years. I have 2 Nikon DSLRs, entry level, the 18-50 and 2 telephoto zooms. We live in an apartment overlooking a river and I can stay on our deck and get some very nice shots of egrets, great blue herons, bald eagles, and ospreys.
I take my photo equipment camping, and have had some very nice Lake Huron sunsets, campfires, and much else.
I'll be following this thread with interest.

Cheers

I transfer to a tablet, much easier to pack than a laptop.

I like how the tail gate paint matches the upper half of the back ground.
