Best SLR for Landscapes
Hi All,.

Im looking for a camera that meets the following requirements:.

1) Ruggedness.

I plan to travel throughout the Northeast USA, shooting landscapes and skyscapes. (Sunsets, Stormy Skies, Mountain Ranges, etc.).

2) WetahterproofI expect some shots (such as waterfalls) will be in moist or misty conditions.

3) Ability to enlarge (36 x 48) while maintaining photo quality and natural lighting details. My ultimate plan is to sell my work once I have a large enough (and good enough) portfolio..

4) Ease of Use.

I realize this is somewhat subjective, but I am looking for something on which the basics can be easily mastered..

I realize that a camera that meets all four of these criteria may not exist. But any advice you guys can offer would be helpful. As much as I like to think money is no object, my target price is a camera and appropriate lenses for under $2k. I can increase this if something is REALLY worth it, but my preference is to keep my initial cost reasonable..

Thanks for all your advice / help!..

The Pentax K10D is weatherproof and has a 10MP sensor, which will allow you to make pretty big prints. It is good value at the moment. The kit lens is not weatherproofed so you should consider paying extra for one of the superior Pentax lenses (called DA* I think) which are weatherproof. Also the optical quality will come into it's own at the sort of print sizes you want, where the limitations of a cheap lens will become obvious..

Best wishesMike..

Nikon D200 fulfils all of these criteria, apart from perhaps 4: it is ergonomically superb though not a beginner dSLR, but anyone with knowledge of digital cameras should have no problems..

Lenswise the Nikon 17-55 f/2.8 or (wider) Nikon 12-24 may be best for your needs. The Sigma 10-20 is wider still and cheaper..

The current state of the art in landscape images I see being produced use image stitching and HDR type software..there is much to learn. Factor in your computer needs as well...many people discover they need an upgrade. Then there is the "art" in you that is there or maybe needs to be developed...you can study the Dutch master painters...they are great. Tho important, he camera and lens are not the most important link in this chain. Good Luck..

As said the Pentax K10D meets your requirements - it's an excellent performer and the body is weatherproofed. The two new DA zooms would be ideal for landscapes and are also weatherproofed. The body is particularly good value at the moment - no doubt because there may be something else in the pipeline.tim..

You're going to be printing well beyond what most people here are printing at..

If you're going to be having this mounted on a wall where people will want to walk up close and look (unlike, say, a billboard advertisement...), and you want THAT to be quite sharp this is going to be very demanding..

I would recommend that, before you jump, you download sample images, crop a portion to enlarge at a reasonable size (say, order a 9"x12" print from 1/16 of the image), and see if that quality is reasonable to you. It's not entirely irrational that dedicated landscape people still often go for medium-format or large-format film, or medium-format digital backs...

Comment #5

In the past, land scape photographers used large format or medium format equipment. In the digital era, the closest you can get to that is with full frame DSLRs..

If you're selling your work, you need pro quality, not a cropped sensor camera like the Pentax KD10..

Most serious landscape photographers with a limited budget seem to be using Canon's EOS 5D and the EF 17-40 f/4 L USM lens..

I have also heard that quite a few landscape photographers use Zeiss Distagon lenses with a Contax mount adaptor, because Zeiss' lenses are optically superior to Canon's in many ways..

In landscape photography, resolution and depth of field count. Ideally, you should get Canon's latest full frame DSLR (EOS 1Ds MkIII, 21MPix), and stick Zeiss' 21mm Distagon on it (supposedly one of the best lenses)..

If you're on a budget, I would consider either Canon's 40D and EFS 10-22 lens or Nikon's D80 and 12-24 lens, both at 10MP. And remember not to stop your lens down all the way to f/22, on a cropped sensor with really small pixels the sharpness will be pretty bad - make some tests before you set off to determine the best f-stop for sharpness and depth of field...

Comment #6

Digital quality has got to the stage where it is comparable in mamy ways with film..

For 36 x 48 prints, you'd use 4x5 film, so in digital, get your self a 30MP or larger digital back for a medium format camera..

You can do this now for under twenty grand, too..

Comment #7

I guess that the camera you're looking for must be able to deliver the best performance possible in colour rendition, dynamic range, etc. With that in mind, I'd look at two other D-SLR's besides the obvious models mentioned by the other posters:.

1) The Sigma SD14: maybe the body is a bit less durable and rugged than for instance the D200, but you can hardly beat it IQ-wise. And: it's priced at such a level that with a budget of $ 2,000 you'll be able to buy some decent (EX) lenses with it..

2) The Fuji S5 Pro: same body, AF, etc. as the D200, but unbeatable for dynamic range and excellent rendition of tones. And: it will offer a number of film simulation modes that are really interesting. Downside is that it is slower than the D200 and a bit more expensive, but it still is the best Fuji Sx Pro ever..

There's no problem so big that you can't run away from it!..

Comment #8

You will not get anywhere near the quality CONSISTENTLY good enough for 36 x 48 (by the way most cams will produce 48" x 32" but some others 48 x 38.4") with a crop sensor. The Canon 5D is definitely the cheapest option at the moment AND you will need really good glass to go with it. Also you will need a good light weight tripod and ball head..

You are taking on a lot considering you have no experience. I think you may be better off for the moment buying a used crop size DSLR to find your feet then selling it once you are more knowledgeable. By then full frame cameras may be cheaper and, in all probablity there will be a Canon 6D. A Canon 350D or Nikon D50/D70 are two that come to mind that might make a good starter camera for you..

Well you all have given me quite a bit to think about. I appreciate the feedback. I am well aware that my overall goal is ambitious for someone who is just starting out, and acknowledge that to get to my ultimate end result I will need to do things increment lay. I'm leaning towards the Pentax K10D, primarly due to it's weatherproofing..

I once almost lost a digital camera (that wasn't mine) in a Venice canal while trying to get a better shot. That was many moons ago, but I just get the sense that if it won't reasonably hold up to the elements, I may be up the creek without a paddle..

With respect to the enlarging, I'm going have to accept that, for now, I get what I get. Part of it is the camera, a greater part of it is technique, of which I have little at the moment. If all goes according to plan, I'll end up taking a class or two in the near future...

No problems with Sigma SD14.

Dont forget the "image-quality... all the rest is pointless without outstanding IQ.. whats the point off hiking though all of the northern states ... if the outcome is only so-so...Sigma SD 14 is THE best landscape-camera .. End of story .

K10D has seals - not waterproof though but a lot better than a Rebel XTi which has no seals..

3) Ability to enlarge (36 x 48) while maintaining photo quality andnatural lighting details. My ultimate plan is to sell my work once Ihave a large enough (and good enough) portfolio..

Shoot panoramas. Multiple images combined into one larger image. If you can afford it, get a 21 megapixel Canon. Has seals similar to the Pentax K10D but costs $8000 without a lens..

4) Ease of UseI realize this is somewhat subjective, but I am looking for somethingon which the basics can be easily mastered..

K10D, Rebel XTi or Nikon D40x - can be as easy or as difficult to use as you want. Hopefully you already have experience with an SLR..

Comment #12

Which dSLR you use - any eight megapixel or higher will be fine. What you will need for your budget is a Ewa Marine bag, a decent tripod and head (preferably a spherical pano head) and some good stitching software. If you plan to print really great images at the size you anticipate you can't do it in one shot with any dSLR including the Canon 1DS Mark III (way expensive). So to work around this limitation you shoot overlapping frames and stitch. By doing this it's quite possible to get the equivalent of a 100 megapixel camera for most landscapes..

Of course there are limitations. Clouds moving, wind blowing etc., can spoil "some" stitched frames, but in general you will be able to get superior landscapes perfectly suitable to be printed at the sizes you want. So rather than agonize over which camera - just pick one which does an excellent job at normal print sizes such as 8x12 then maximize your resolution by stitching..

Stitching is not difficult if you do the captures properly. A superb stitching program such as Autopano Pro can be purchased for about $150 so plan on a good tripod (maybe $200) a decent spherical pano head ($200 or less) and that leaves you about $1500 for a camera and a couple lenses. Nikon is nice because you can pick up some very good manual focus lenses cheap. For landscapes you don't need autofocus. You need a camera which has a decent buffer because sometimes you must shoot relatively fast to avoid excessive cloud movement, etc. An Ewa Marine splash bag will let you shoot in inclement weather without worrying about super sealed and weatherproof dSLR's.



You can do what you want within your budget. You don't need an $8000 top of line Canon with 21 megapixels. You don't need 9 frames per second and you don't need tons of features - you just need a decent, weather protected (with the splash bag) camera a good tripod and head and lots of patience..

Best regards,.

Have walked quite a while down your path. I ended up with the D2X and have found it to be quite good for landscape..

I think that you need to add a bit more to your budget and maybe consider a used D200 (a ton should flood the market soon with the announcment of the new D300) or maybe consider the new D300..

Both have waterproofed bodys...they are pro feature sets on both bodys....and you dont have to have all the SIZE of the pro bodys...(My D2X is like the D200 with a battery grip.....kinda big..but not bad for what I do).

I would start with a lens like the Tokina 12-24 for your superwide. If your on a budget...consider the 18-200VR to round out a super light kit...then when you start making money...then consider some pro lenses to keep building with....maybe upgrade to the 14-24...and the 24-70 new lenses from Nikon..

Cut your teeth on the first setup....then slowly upgrade as your budget allows..

And dont forget to set enough asside for a nice light and very sturdy tripod.....its a landscape shooters best friend....a Gitzo Carbon Fiber unit with a Really Right Stuff ballhead would be an investment you would never have to upgrade. Kinda spendy but worth it..

Did you even bother to look at his post? He posted a budget of about 2,000.00.

Unless hassy equipment has come down in price...I doubt he could affford the kit....even if it was film. Have you priced Hassy lenses lately?.

Hi Roman,.

As one who uses a rather large number of dSLR's including full frame Canon's (remember, the OP's question concerned slr's not scanning backs or MF digital backs) I tend to agree..

There are lots of great dSLR's and I like to include my Nikon D2Xs, my full frame Canon and my new Canon 40D among them, but the Sigma SD14 is unique..

You have some misconceptions about the importance of file size versus enlargement potential based, I'm sure, on your experience with CFA cameras. The SD14 has a 14 megapixel sensor and what it produces is not similar to a six or eight megapixel CFA but much more similar to a 12 megapixel CFA camera. Actually, the author of Qimage, Mike Chaney, has pretty much put his Canon 5D aside and uses the SD14 because he likes the overall output better..

As for print sizes - had you attended PMA in Las Vegas you could have seen a wall of beautiful huge prints from the SD14 at A0 and greater size including a couple of my own. Don't sell the SD14 short until you have some personal experience with what it can do. Pure pixel level sharpness is unparalleled with CFA based dSLR's and the lack of aliasing artifacts makes it much more amenable to serious enlargement..

Fritz has some good reasons for his opinion about the SD14 and landscapes. There are other factors such as false detail at resolution exhaustion which make these cameras unique for landscape work..

We all have our favorites - but for landscapes I've found the SD14 to be superb myself and I do have a MF back as well..

Best regards,.

Ok....but then I also would qualify this adventure into the best 35MM system to included lenses that you can eventually upgrade to. With the nikon gear their new lenses are wikid impressive (at least from what I have seen....again.....not connfirmed from real world tests) and I know I can get Zeiss glass for my Nikon. Quick question ....what kind of AA filter is on the SD14?.

As for print sizes - had you attended PMA in Las Vegas you could haveseen a wall of beautiful huge prints from the SD14 at A0 and greatersize including a couple of my own.

Hi Roman,.

Snip...

Of course - actually for single frame captures under the right conditions there is nothing like a Betterlight scanning back. I think it even looks better than 8x10. Stephen Johnson's gallery in California is full of some fantastic huge prints made with this one.snip.

How so....please elaborate....snip.

Primarily because it uses a totally different approach with the Foveon sensor. Since RBG is directly apprehended at each pixel position the native image is completely uninterpolated. This helps create a uniformity of resolution not found in CFA technology. With all CFA cameras color resolution lags b&w resolution by a considerable amount depending on the individual colors. Red is the most problematic. CFA (bayer) technology has been around long enough that it does an amazing job but when color resolution is measured in much the same we measure b&w resolution we find that even 12 megapixel CFA cameras lag behind the lowly 4.7 megapixel (native file size) Sigma SD14 in the color red especially.



Snip.

Ok....but then I also would qualify this adventure into the best 35MMsystem to included lenses that you can eventually upgrade to....snip.

Absolutely - I'm planning to upgrade my Nikon lens assortment soon and probably will buy the new D300. As much as I love my D2Xs I think the new D300 may be an upgrade from the IQ perspective and certainly from the burst and frame speed perspective. With all the new VR lenses on the horizon I think Nikon is about to leapfrog Canon..

....what kind of AA filter is on the SD14?.

That's both the beauty and curse. It doesn't use an AA filter. In architectural photography there are times when stairstep aliasing becomes a mild annoyance but not to the point where it can't be selectively corrected. For landscape photos with all the irregular shapes it's simply not a problem at all.snip.

Yes, beautiful prints! I really love the large prints from my D2Xs also. I find it far outclasses what I can get from my Canon 1DS. There are fewer artifacts in my experience with the D2X than with Canon (I have D30, 10D, 1D, 1DS, 40D). Nikon D2X images uprez beautifully - in my experience one of the best..

Yes - great prints....

I may not know the SD14 well...snip.

Yes, large prints are always fun and challenging. At PMA every year I love to visit the various booths and see what everyone is doing. Three years ago in Las Vegas I had the chance to meet Peter Grote who had just returned from the Annapurnas and had a 17 foot by 42 inch print made with his BetterLight scanning back. It was incredible. At the same show Max Lyons had the first gigapixel print made with a digital camera. It was an uninterpolated 300dpi print 10 by 12 feet made from 196 stitched images captured over a 14 minute period of a Bryce canyon scene.

It was printed in sections on a Liightjet and the detail was stunning. Just imagine the detail in a six megapixel 5x7 print and multiply it to 10x12 feet and you get a feel..

Snip.

Of course. I think Fritz was perhaps fishing for some controversy - LOL. He's really a nice guy and makes some incredible photos, but like many Foveon enthusiasts he can be opinionated (aren't we all? LOL).snip.

Cool.....I will give it a try...if your that impressed....maybe Ishould have a look..

Oh...quick question...if the MP actually behaves like 12MP.....butthe sensor sees like a 4MP....would that mean less diffraction issues?.

It doesn't seem to be a problem at all. The relatively artifact free image without interpolation has little to impede really good upsizing. Since the sensor resolves to a single pixel all the detail "possible" with a 4.7 megapixel sensor is captured and very evenly across the color spectrum. In contrast, our CFA cameras actually interpolate a significant amount so that even a 12 megapixel camera like our D2X actually only captures about a true six megapixels of detail. So the true difference in resolution between the SD14 and 12 megapixel CFA cameras is less than one would expect. Long ago when the first Sigma SD9 was introduced Phil was rather surprised to find that this 3.4 megapixel version had measured optical resolution equal or slightly better than a six megapixel CFA camera (1550 horiz by 1550 vert lines).

Obviously, we don't "see" color resolution as well as we do b&w but it very much factors into the equation when we print large..

It's definitely an interesting camera. Partially because it has no AA filter and partially because of the sensor design, it resolves detail beyond the point where an AA filter creates "mush" with a CFA camera. This detail is not accurate detail but helps with landscapes in a rather interesting way. If you look at the resolution chart for the SD9/SD10 (SD14 not available yet here) you will see that at the point where the sensor stops resolving accurate detail, the nine converging lines suddenly become five lines. At this same point an AA filter would cause a complete blur or "mush" appearance. This same "false" detail would make nine blades of grass or nine pine needles become five - but whose counting? So at resolution extinction instead of clumps of blur which we get when we overdo enlargement with our CFA cameras we still see detail with the Sigma.
