  • Replied in QX's are fun!
    I went looking for a snap on lens set for my wife's iPhone 6, but they all need to have the case removed, and then the quality is just So So.  For the same money, a better lens, sensory, VR AND it ...
  • Replied in a7 vs a6000
    I guess that depends on you.  What you shoot, how you shoot, what is important to you. I think for me, I would use it more for longer distance and action based, so for me, I would find it most ...
  • A check is just not very romantic.  If a selection is made it means that though was put into it.  Weather or not it is kept or exchanged is another story based on needs and desires and how well ...
  • My mistake several years ago was to purchase a NEX3 at the pawn shop.  Fell in love with it and she never ever was able to use it. I ended up getting her a Panasonic  point and shoot.  But a 3000 ...
  • Now that is So Cool!  Thanks for posting!
  • Adobe doesn't have any Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, and many more listed. They only list Canon, Nikon and Leica cameras. http://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/tethered-camera-support-lightroom-4.html I ...
  • I use PTGui  (Panorama Tools Graphic User Interface)  It has lots of options and works really well, and while not free, they do offer a trial.   360x180 HDR panorama The Prestiss Covered Bridge in ...
  • Nope, no guessing here, tried it,  But I will admit to perhaps not giving it a fair shake, but I do have better solutions.   I don't doubt you can get 1000 frames from a charge, but I think it is ...
  • I found a cheep one on Ebay. I don't know who I got it from, but it is one like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/310656352757 The expense is the battery and the charger,  You need to get the right ...
  • I have shot lots of timelapse over days. and while a mirrorless camera is an amazing tool, it isn't the best for timelapse. The viewscreen stays on, and uses power which is not necessary for a ...
  • I had though the lens looked like a tank, but I guess not as much as I had thought.  But I suspect when compared to the 10-18 APS-C it will be much larger. Thanks for posting the comparison!
  • I have and use that same L bracket on my A7 and love it,  I found one just like it for my a6000, it is great, it works with the camera on or off the tripod, giving better grip to a tiny camera.   ...
  • there has been lots of great advice given here. From professional practice to don't do it at all, and it is all valid :-) My advice is to see if you can tag along as a helper to a wedding and see ...
  • I think if you ask lots of people, you will get lots of varying answers, much depends on personal preference and bias. I don't like to go above ISO 1600 on my a6000, or 3200 on the A7 but don't ...
  • I made tens of thousands of exposures with my NEX7 and Loved it with the 10-18.  I never picked up another camera with the ultra-wide after I got that combination.  Fantastic. I skipped the 16mm, ...
  • You know, I am still waiting for my new 4x5 point and shoot 'travlewide' camera to come in.  I still shoot a bunch of film.  But have upgraded both film and digital cameras in the past 8 years, ...
  • I feel your pain,  My Macs are now 8 years old and still running fine, but I can't upgrade the OS any more and the newest versions of software want the newest versions of the OS,  So Off i go to ...
  • I have a Life Pixel converted NEX3 with the clear cover glass.  I find that I enjoy the 720 filter the best.   The IR Cut filter I have is a much different profile than the filter that was ...
  • Replied in A7 just died!
    Not to be left out,  My Nikon D5000 had sudden death syndrome as well this month. And Nikon D200 crapped out too.  I have lots of Nikons just up and die on me.  Worst was an FM2,  I just couldn't ...
  • Replied in A7 just died!
    Mine did that durring a shoot a month after I had purchased it.  swapped under warranty.  No problems with the new one, but it was strange working one minute, Dead the next.
