    I want to start with a mirrorless camera, but i don't need the best image quality. I just want a camera that gives me more control over my photos than my old Lumix FS3. Would a micro four thirds camera like the Olympus OMD EM10 work for me? It has some very nice features and there are TONS of lenses for the M4/3 mount.

    Hi there. Just wondering what you think about the new Sony a7r ii? I've heard it's a huge step up from the a7r. I'm curious to to hear what you think of it. Personally I own a Nikon d3300 but I'm purchasing the Panasonic gh4 mostly for its 4k capability and many other features that are otherwise out of my price range

    If you are just starting in photography you shouldn't be dropping $3,000 on a camera body for your "hobby" unless you are financially well off.  To get your feet wet buy a used T2i or whatever T(x)i you can afford or, better yet, get the Sony a6000.  In a year if you are still into photography you can spend $6k  – $10k on a pro body and lenses.  While I love this doods videos this one is just a straight up money grab.

    Hi Serge,
    are listed in your gears two ND filters, the UltraPro vario and the Fotodiox ND1000, both very affordable. I personally have a Hitech ND 8 stops filter which is horrible inasmuch as the color cast it introduces is uncontrollable, barely fixable to mention a few. How about your filters, can you easilly fix the color cast, do you lose contrast and/or sharpness?

    Serge. question, in your Canon Pro kit on this video you recommended a Sigma lens but on your site you have a Tokina lens,, which lens ? I think I would prefer the Sigma over the Tokina,, also a question about the Really right stuff ballhead, I do alot of seaside landscapes and dont know how that would do with salt and sand and cleaning, I've been thinking about an Acratech head as it has an open ball head which can be cleaned with water, I mention to you because you may be interested since I see you do do some coastal shooting, really enjoy your videos !! Keep up the great work !!

    C'est quoi cette vidéo sérieux??
    Parler de liste pour débuter la photo avec presque du matos de pro c'est vraiment insister encore une fois que le matériel fait le photographe alors que ce n'est pas le cas!

    Je ne parle même pas de l'objectif Sigma qui n'est même pas adapté au Full Frame…

    Désolé mais cette vidéo n'est vraiment pas â conseiller

    get yourself a used XE-1 and the 10-24mm. that sensor is similar to fullframeness in outputquality and there is no L or nikon glass (except maybe the 14-24) that is that well corrected and also cheap.

    Beware, there is a little mislead in the video, Sigma 18-35 is ONLY for APS-C sensors like 7D, 70D, etc. It won't work for 5D Mark III or any other full frame sensor camera.

    Great recommendations, Serge, and thanks for that. My personal choice would be a humble start – Sony A6000 (for now). 
    In the middle of the video you have mentioned some people – a suggestion for you to make a video with the favorite photographers that have inspired you. 
    Cheers.

    Thanks, Serge. Definitely interesting, but probably not deep enough into the topic. I would recommend for a beginner to save with the camera and spend the money on a good lens, and always choose full frame lenses. Sony A7r is great sensor quality, but the selection of lenses is poor and autofocus with the adaptor not always worsk plus it is slower. So this is nothing for action photos, just for portrait or landscape or night.
    I would have recommended also to take a closer look at Canon 6D. Same picture quality as 5D mark3, a bit slower in focus, maybe a bit better in dark light and 1000 Euro cheaper.
    Now one thing I would love to see in your tutorials and that is a how to clean a dirty sensor with the gear you are promoting. Would be very helpful! Thanks!

    I don't think you should buy such expensive cameras if you're just starting out in photography.

    Question please Serg, need to upgrade from a T3i, starting to get paid for some interior photography, can only afford 1 camera and 1 lens. Will be shooting landscapes, Architecture and Interior Design. Should I go Canon 70D or Sony A7R? Also which lens is best for an all-round go-to lens? Hope you can help.

    One Problem with your pro kit recommendation. The Sigma 18-35mm is designed for APS-C and does not fit on the Canon 5D.

    Professional photographer recommending to buy a lens designed for a crop sensor camera for a full frame camera. 

    Sorry Serge, but you just lost all credibility in my eyes. Just makes me think that Amazon gave you a list of stuff on which they are willing to give you a royalty if the purchase comes through your website…and you just picked the stuff that pays the most.

    Not a SINGLE photographer would recommend that DC (DIGITALLY CROPPED) Sigma lense to be bought on a 5d3… well, not a single one that knows what they are talking about.

    Yet, despite being a mirorless camera, A7 is still a full-frame camera. Therefore, while you benefit from the smaller body, you still have to deal with full-frame sized lenses. Not to mention that the lens selection for A7 is pretty pitiful. If you really want to get great image quality and travel light – try micro four thirds. Olympus in particular has a very mature line-up for bodies and lenses. Anything from consumer grade to pro. Just an IMHO.

    After 38 years working as a photojournalist, with Nikon, today my preferences go to Olympus OM-D series. Not only the cameras, but, and most of all, the Olympus Zuiko lenses are close to perfection.

    What are your thoughts on the Sony A6000? Right now I'm shooting with a Nikon D7000 but like what I'm hearing about the 6000.

    Hi Serge, great video!
    I bought a Pentax K-3 with 135mm WR lens. What do you think about this camera?

    The Nikon D3300 is better in low light performance that of the Canon 7D Mark II, just to point that out there if anyone is starting in photography, you don't have to spend a lot for a great camera. I currently have the Nikon D5300. Slowly moving up to full frame.
