RadPhoto: Does anyone know why Sony changed their name from NEX? Was there anything wrong with it?
@Black Box hahaha
RadPhoto: DPR, how is the keypad? Is it the same like the first batch of X-T1? washed out and no feedback? Are they going to make us pay extra to fix their design flaws?
@Just a PhotographerFYI. I do own X10 and X-T1 with lenses 35mm, 18-55mm, 27mm, 10-24mm. So, what’s your point again?

RadPhoto: Also, I woudn't trust the first batch coming from Fuji! I got the X-T1 and had the the faulted keypad and Fuji is still in denial!
@ shigzeo Exactly! The door is really “loose”. Another example of poor finishing and attention to details.
@Just a Photographer You have no idea what you’re talking about! Go back to your basement!

where is the GPS? How hard/expensive is it to get a fre&^%$ GPS in Fuji cameras? Just a cheap chinease chip will do the trick!
RadPhoto: Apple only cares about products related to iPhone.
@Funduro @EricCul For now. Mark my world. By the way, I own iMac 27”, MacBook Pro 15”, iTV, iPad Air, iPad Mini, iPhone 4 and iPhone 5S. AND a PowerBook 12” to show you how long I’ve been using Apple products!

That’s a nice feature feature to have
A really good video and tips. Thanks
On a side note, and technically speaking, Morocco is not in Middle East.
Sarge_: To me, you either buy into the APS-C formatted Sony NEX cameras, step down to the smaller M43, or get the RX100.
The Nikon isn't even on my radar (except for the new waterproof model). The Sony NEX cameras are roughly as pocketable (NEX-5, etc) as this V3, and NEX produces better IQ, especially at higher ISO. If video is a priority, I'd look at the Panasonic GH4, and if pocketability/size were a factor I'd have the Sony RX100.
I love my Nikon D800, but Nikon really disappointed me with the sensor size in this camera system, and there's no 'fixing' that, as even if this sensor gets better, so too will the larger APS-C sensors...
Didn't Sony kill NEX cameras?
I am very impressed. And I am a Nikon and Fuji shooter!
OceanFroggie: Technically Sony have some interesting innovations BUT boy the bodies look ugly to the eye.
The D5300 performs as well as it looks. I get WIFI but what is with this GPS rubbish?
You'd DON'T have to you use the GPS! Why does it bother you? I love having GPS. You probably don't travel, so GPS will be useless!
Looking forward to it!
Cycleshooter: Video never has the information density of the printed word, but is cheaperto produce. This is the first step back from what has made this site great.
Man, give them a chance!
Luego: The loud shutter sound is a real turn-off for me. Hopefully Sony will address this in their future version.Listen to this hollow sound of the shutter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmS2fUngz2o:
They will never do that. People complained about it for all NEX system and never happened. You would think it's easier without the mirror!!
Olga Celle: I own a Nex 7 and despite the fact that it is a great little thing, I have to say that Sony never worked fast enough in providing the NEX 7 with decent, semi-pro lens. I am not picky, the NEX 7 was intended as a semi-pro camera. Firmware was never actualized to properly meet customers' wishes expressed in hundreds of blogs. As a result, Nex 7 owners were looking forward the next NEX 7 model; instead, Sony produces the A7/A7R promising a new line of full frame lenses in the near future...Considering that the NEX 7 and its lens were not cheap, this means that those NEX 7 owners who were expecting just a change in camera body are (again) let down. I'm keeping my NEX 7. I am buying a Nikon full frame.
Same feeling. I have an NEX5N sitting doing nothing after I switched to Nikon. I always wantedthem to do what Fuji does with keep updating the firmware with new features if the hardware permits. For example. Shooting 3 frames for autoexposure with only .7 ev!!! That reminds me, I should post it on eBay
Zvonimir Tosic: A good first step taken by a major DSLR manufacturer in building an alternative to a typical and ubiquitous blobby DSLR design — copied across DSLR brands for over a decade, and one that even mirroless cameras now mimic, in a desperate attempt to show 'seriousness' and secure some money.
Like a Leica camera often ridiculed here, or any other quality craftsmanship that comes with an asking price above one brass farthing, this is definitely not a tool for majority of users here. But it is an encouraging thought — something about it must be right, especially in times where everything looks so same, boring and depreciated.
It provokes a thought indeed, be it intelligent or a mindless rant, nevertheless.Well done Nikon.
I agree with you Zvonimir Tosic
