This week we talk about the best camera for travel photography, and whether you’d take your DSLR or a high end point and shoot. We also talk about using full frame lenses on crop sensor cameras, whether the Canon 6D or the Sony A7II is a better full frame option and good compact system camera options for people with back pain.

Here are this week’s questions:

Janos Pesti

“what camera do you guys take when you travel ? your DSLR or higher end point and shoot? I mean travel to Europe for a few weeks to see family and visit a few countries perhaps..”

Cathy Hyde

“You wouldnt put a 70-200 on the d3200 anyway because its a crop frame camera.”


“Hey spyros..hows it going…it has been like 9 months since ive asked you for advice on whether i should make the move from a Pentax k30 to a k5iis or k3 and you recommended the k5iis. which i ended up getting and i do not regret it one bit…it has been such and amazing camera for me and i love it,thanks again for the advice man..

anyway recently i have been trying to carry less and less of my gear (cause of my chronic back pain) and just my camera with a 18-135mm kit lens. which has lead me to decide in moving into getting a full frame camera so i can get better image quality and carry only one or 2 lenses and ofcourse get more in my images with a full frame and better noise performance for low light high iso hand held shots.. so i decided to start my research early and cut it down to 2 cameras around my price range..the Canon 6D and the Sony A7II ..anyway my question is which one of these cameras do you recommend man? your opinion would mean alot ,thanks in advance -will”

Your camera is an amazing tool, but it’s no good to you if you don’t know how to use it!
