  • The a5100 has a touchscreen since it has so few hard controls on the camera body and is geared more to newbies. There was a touchscreen on my old NEX-5n and I turned it off since every time I moved...

  • No worries for me, if I'm getting wet or sandblasted I won't let my camera suffer along with me....

  • The eyecup is there (aside from sheltering view from ambient light) so that when it falls off you know you're beating your camera a bit to hard.... ;-)

  • So, how you look, taking photos is more important than how the photos look? I suppose if you strike a good pose with a giant SLR then you'll look just right and all photographic criteria will be...

  • Bottom line, besides handling and usability, is that I look at the numerous sample images and if I was without any labels or descriptions around them I'd say that they could be from a D810, A7x,...

  • Commented on article Sony SLT-A77 II Review

    Honestly, after viewing Gary Fong's YT vid on this camera, I'm thinking that in order to get it to do what you want you need to spend a bit more time tweaking all of the multitude of focus and...

  • Can't add in-camera GPS without GPS radio hardware...

  • Commented on article Samsung NX1 Review

    Hmmmm....
    Let's see. Fifteen Hundred for an NX1 body and I paid four-fifty for my new a6000 from Adorama this past holiday season. So, this body is worth more than three times an a6000? It is...

  • Agreed. Personally, I'm happier with my own presets and modifications of them. Tri-X was great in its day, but offers nothing special over the multitude of looks that are available in the digital...

  • On the face of it, it would appear that Canon had at least some aspects of the Sony RX10 in mind when building this camera - fixed lens, video/still hybrid design, high initial price tag...

  • Happy with LR 5.7 and PS 5. Nothing that I need to do that I can't with my images using either or both. My cameras don't seem to care, so neither do I...

  • I'm wondering if these pricey bits of tripod icing will yield better images. I've been shooting for almost 50 years under all sorts of conditions and have only found need for the precision that...

  • Commented on article Sony Alpha a7 II Review

    I happen to have an A7, purchased last year, used on FM. Great deal, and affordable for a full-frame. I'm still learning it, even though I've been shooting NEX and Alpha Sony cameras for a while,...

  • Commented on article Sony Alpha a7 II Review

    This is a common problem plaguing most camera sites - the fascination with new technology and great expectations for the follow-on models, whether they got them right and made improvements and...

  • The lens firmware update mentioned above in this article for the SEL2870 is not on the Sony support site. I just finished a chat with a representative and they stated that there is no firmware...

  • ...we need the assault rifles to shoot down the drones, obviously! Why is that difficult to understand? -paranoid

  • Yes, and insurers selling us "drone insurance" to soften the blow of any litigation involving "emotional trauma" brought on by the mere sound of those nasty little electric motors.... ;-)

  • Excellent point! I was flying RC planes with my older cousin in the 50's in open fields, generally away from people and houses. It was simply thought to be a hobby and aircraft were generally...
