GlobalGuyUSA: Is it sharp? You can see the Spiders coming out of his nose. :-D
Hopefully the technology improves by the time I'm 40!
JonathanFV: Wow, impressive! I'm wondering, what is it that's being hit by the lightning on top of the mountain?
Thanks! That bolt fell just at the right place! :)

Well said! I wouldn't mind getting a macro shot of my face. But I'll pass for the bent over one. :D
Holy crap, from up close, this guys is absolutely disgusting, ha ha!
What a beautiful shot! Great photographer. Reminds me I really want to give Moon silhouette photography a shot.
SF Photo Gal: I'm just a girl, so maybe I don't get it, but why would I buy this without TTL? I'd love a wireless with radio instead of the really sucky optial.
Old comment, but I'll reply anyway. This IS wireless. Just without TTL. It's less expensive than most wireless triggers and it's small, so I think it can be useful as either a small device to carry around for those who don't care for TTL or a backup to leave in the camera bag in case you forget your main wireless trigger.
Yannick KREMPP: Just a quick (stupid ?) question: if you use a metabones adapter to use some canon glass, do you cumulate the IS from the lense and the IBIS ? How does this work ?
Can you use IS with a Metabones adaptor? I would have thought you couldn't!
Anadrol: Now Sony please just put back the EVF in the corner !!!
Yeah, it's really too bad, I also like the rangefinder form factor better. Within the next few years, they might have a model like that!
JonathanFV: Also, I'm wondering about something else. Let's say I have my camera on a table in my room, and that I own a cat, who happens to bump head first on the table leg, making the camera fall and the impact triggering the shutter and taking a picture of the cat whose head is still smashing on the table leg. Then I get home, find my camera on the ground, take a look at the photo, and surprise! It's a good photo. It happened randomly. I didn't really take the photo. I could claim a copyright for it, lying and pretending I'm the one who too the photo. But if I told the truth, and if I was honest with myself... I was just lucky. It's okay that not everything belongs to someone.
drummercam - Asked that nicely, I'd be happy to send you the RAW! :) Although, technically, only what's available is usable, and it's up to the person to share undisclosed documents or not! (But really, I would send it if asked like that.)
sakisda: The big dissapointment of a6000 was the sound of shutter. It was like Nikon's. Everyone near you realizes you're taking pictures. I hope this pronlem has been corrected in a5100. It's a major disadvantage for street photography
Examples of situations where a silent shutter might be welcome: weddings, conferences, workshops, churches, every place you can think off where you are trying to let people forget you're there. It's not necessarily essential, but it's a nice feature. And what about people who like to take pictures of animals, or people reporting in dangerous areas?
Does anybody know if it would be possible to add XAVC to the A6000 via a firmware upgrade? The A5100 is a nice little camera, but the only thing it has that I wish my A6000 had is the better video codec. Thanks to whoever can give me an answer!
True. A silent shutter might be useful in environments where you don't want to disturb people, tho!

Woah, that monkey took quite the selfies! Impressive! For the copyright... Well, Slater didn't set it up for it to happen like that, his equipment was stolen and the monkey himself took the pictures without Slater making him do it or planning it. It's a great find, but why not just accept the exposure and not care about the copyright?
I can't wait to see studio photos! :)
Yeah, it's totally the successor of the NEX 3, not the 5...
acarb: I am now deciding which system to invest in. m43 is very tempting to me, size and super wide angles (unfortunately only zooms not primes). These Sony new entries are now very tempting, but only if my 1970 NIKKOR-O 1:4 F 2,1 cm can provide all the qualities I was used to on my Nikon F. How to be sure before buying?
It should work okay. I use a Nikkor on my NEX 5N, and it works fine, except that it's sometimes a bit hard to focus very sharply, but I think that's just the lens itself.
If you have an adapter, you could probably just head to the store when it's out, and ask if you can try it to see if you like it or not. A few stores let me try lenses on my camera before buying them.
Robbie Robbe: the much too loud shutter noise is an issue and will prevent me from buying one of these two cameras
The A7 should be quieter, it has a first curtain electronic shutter, while the A7R doesn't. I'm mostly waiting for good reviews to help me decide if the A7 is worth it. It would also be a good idea to wait to see how various lenses do on these, both native lenses and lenses from other systems.
Badger1952: Great images, but I can't help but wonder whether the ones with the leaping people have been superimposed - why no splash from jumping out of the water - unless they are reincarnations of Bob Beaman!
I don't think that person jumped out of the water, she seems way too high. I think she jumped off something that is not in the frame.
