    Does your camera has the "peaking" option? It is a focus assist that highlight the part of the image which is in focus on the lcd or even in the viewfinder on mirrorless bodies. I only rely on that and sometimes on magnification for non moving subjects as all my lenses are manual focus.

    You can also try a smartphone repair shop, they shouldn't charge much to look at the mode dial. As you can see in this video, the top part is only held by 2 screws on the top and 2 others in the battery compartment. If the dial is hard to turn, some dust may be stuck inside. My keeper rate is...

    A few weeks ago, I saw a Z840 going for $300 on a local auction website. It had 2x E5-2630v3 and 64GB of ram. I would have bought it if I didn't have my T3500. My advice would be to check your local ads for a few weeks, you may find a good deal if you're not in a hurry...

    While looking for a red dot sight mount for an air rifle, I found some pics showing these mounted on cameras. It looks like a great idea to quickly get a moving subject in the frame with a telephoto lens! Has anyone tried this technique?
