Englewood Camera always has a high turnover rate for used cameras and used lenses, so we don’t always have a chance to post equipment online. We do have a great selection of cameras and lenses available right now though, so kick start your weekend by checking out these deals on pre-owned camera gear!
NEW YORK, Oct. 6, 2016 – Sony Electronics, a worldwide leader in digital imaging and the world’s largest image sensor manufacturer, has today introduced their new flagship APS-C sensor camera, the α6500 (model ILCE-6500).
As the latest addition to Sony’s lineup of award winning mirrorless cameras, the new α6500 shares the same unrivaled 4D FOCUS™ system as the α6300 camera, which can lock focus on a subject in as little as 0.05 seconds, the world’s fastest AF acquisition time. Also shared with the α6300, the new α6500 features 425 phase detection AF points that are densely positioned over nearly the entire image area – the world’s highest number of AF points on any interchangeable lens camera. The new model can shoot images at up to 11 frames per second with continuous autofocus and exposure tracking and up to 8 frames per second in a live-view shooting mode that makes it easy to track fast moving subjects, as it combines all of the benefits of an electronic viewfinder with the immediacy of an optical viewfinder.
The fall colors of the Rockies are starting to peak! Grab your camera, circular polarizer, and ND filters, and head west for some awesome color shots!
Staffer Kyle Cooper ventured out to Minturn, CO last weekend to shoot the changing leaves of the aspens. Minturn is an old mining town, established in 1904, and is located southwest of Vail, CO. Kyle loved checking out the changing leaves among the old mining buildings in this historic town with his girlfriend Genna; check out some of his shots, taken with a Nikon F4 and Kodak Ektar 100.
Kyle also snagged this awesome shot of Genna near Lake Dillon–wonderful color happening there, too! The Dillon/Frisco/Silverthorne area off of I70 West is a close location to Denver for a photographic day trip.
Focusing a little closer to town, staffer Sherry Harder spent time near Breckenridge, off of Colorado 9 to the south, watching the leaves start to change. Sherry shot some images around Guanalla Pass, just south of Georgetown, on her way back to town. Her advice is to head west this weekend, where you’ll see not only oranges and golds in the aspens, but red leaves too. This should be the peak weekend for fall leaves, so if you want to brave the I70 traffic, get your camera gear ready!
Sherry also went by Kenosha Pass, off of Colorado 285, to check out the changing landscape. This will also be a high traffic area this weekend, but some of the outlying areas will be amazing locations to shoot the aspen.
Do you have a location worthy of shooting fall colors? Leave a comment for fellow photographers!
