#258908 Anyone using an HDTV Antenna?

Posted by james23p on 11 January 2019 - 04:47 PM

We tried that in our bedroom trying not to pay for another cable box and it was a mixed bag we got about 15 channels but the reception was hit and miss and we would have to move the digital antenna around for different channels so the power assisted window mounted ones are not so good and we live about 10 miles from downtown Memphis and Memphis is fairly flat. We finally gave up and paid the additional 17$ for another box.

 

My guess is you being so far out you will need a roof top one with power boost and a rotary or omni directional antenna.

What a great camera and lens! Fuji is top of the heap when it comes to DX cameras!

#258482 l don't want a D500 anymore.

Posted by james23p on 18 December 2018 - 10:45 PM

l was out running errands and passed a Best Buy. So l stopped and looked at cameras. The D500 has some great features. Especially the text on the buttons that light up. That makes it a great body for night photography. But it's so big and heavy. l don't want a body that big. And there's no pop up flash. l wouldn't use on camera flash for the sole source of light. For fill flash they're great. So l guess l want a D7500. Really like the size of the D5600 and my D5300. But those lack good features.***They had a Z6 with 24-70 f/4. Now that was an awesome setup! However, the cost and lack of lenses for the Z series makes it unattractive for me. Maybe in a few years l'll go to the Z.

The D500 is pro grade in everyway! It is large and heavy to sustain the abuse a working pro will put it thru. But the D7500 is a nice caerma too my only complaint is it no longer supports older MF Nikons since they removed the aperture coupler, they deleted the second card slot(not as big a deal bnut I prefer one) and it has no depth of preview button(I am not sure on this one but that is what I was told and I do not see one on the camera).

 

But the IQ is top of the line and they say the AF and Exposure is also top of the line.
