Thread: Self take photography.

  1. #1

    Default Self take photography.

    Can anyone suggest a good quality camera that has a flip round screen and infra red remote so I can take trophy shots of myself?

    Depends on your budget.

    I have had various Nikon cameras in the past and was never impressed by them. I much prefer Canon.
    I have never had a DSLR so maybe they give better results. All my cameras have been Bridge cameras, mainly because of the price.
    The two I have at the moment are Canon SX1is and Canon SX50hs. Both have fliparound screens and remote.

    If you want a dSLR, the Canon ones that will give you what you are asking for are the 600D and 650D on the 2nd tier (1 up from entry level) and 60D on the 3rd tier. The Nikon/Sony/Pentax/Fuji/Olympus etc users can advise on their brands' offerings

    My Nikon D5000 has both a flip back screen and there is a infrared remote you can buy.

    This picture was taken with them.


    This is it.

    Sandy, yer 'pal' looks seriously uncomfortable with bodily contact.

    Anyway, am I missing something here, lads, or wot? Why would one need a flip-around screen and a remote to take pics of oneself?

    Yeah that little button that represents a timer plus a reference point would do the trick...
    Using a looper and a top makes for a much better furled leader!

    By heck those glasses suit you more than your avatar pic sandy, I always imagined you as a roadie for Status quo from your avatar pic.

    Wise guys

    With the timer you only have a certain amount of time to get in the frame, with the remote you can take your time. It is also handy to set the camera up pointing at a feeding spot and catch the birds/animals that come to feed without being near the camera. I don't use the flip screen by the way

    I was a roadie but not with Status Quo
