On article Sony announces Alpha a5100 compact mirrorless camera (104 comments in total)

I read Nex-5 and the first question that comes to mind: Does it overheat?

The loss of detail is impressive with this one, when you look at the samples larger than screen size :o

The only thing I'm interested in is the image quality. If it's still the washed out, noisy, detail loss image quality that Sony has for years now in their compact cameras, then they can still keep them.

1080/60p. The Nex-5N and the Nex-7 already have problems with that. This camera seems to be even smaller. So does it overheat?

Jogger: pretty boring update. the builtin flash is nice though.

I dismounted the flash of my Nex-5N a week ago. I figured I never used it. Neither had the need to use it.

Question 1: does it "click"?
Question 2: does it overheat?

On article Just Posted: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V review (130 comments in total)
In reply to:

wb2trf: As a user of the very similar HX-100V the review seems generally fair to me and most of the comments here are wildly off the mark, reflecting the insecure clubby snobbishness that is typical of people who need to see their equipment as an externalization of their ego.

The comments about needing a tripod to use the 810mm and the uselessness of the long zoom reflect simple ignorance. Here is a handheld shot at 1/20 and 810mm in indoor light, taken only to illustrate the remarkable effectiveness of IS in the HX-100V, which I am sure carries over to the HX-200V, and is true of its competitors probably. http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/4179087231/photos/1466743/dsc05439

Eventually you will all give up the notion of looking at pixels. The Nikon D800 and other cameras will teach you to find some other club handshake than simply denigrating higher pixel count. Those of you who want fewer pixels can always buy old cameras and extol their virtues on some "collectables" site.

"Eventually you will all give up the notion of looking at pixels" What else is there to look, it's the only thing that matters. If I would like to look at pictures with a 1024x768 resolution, i could also look at pictures of my mobile phone from 2008.

For this camera Sony took last years ugly image quality, increased the image size, labeled it 18MP and that's it. I wouldn't use this camera even if someone gave it to me for free. Even when you resize the pictures to half their size, then you see a lot of watercoloring and patterns. This camera makes peoples faces look ugly. Who wants to be photographed like this? It's a real disappointment. The low dpreview score for image quality is still too high in my opinion.

So the deblur function was all in all a marketing fraud?

OMG, finally more megapixels do make sense! :D

Where's the deblur feature? That's the only reason for which I'd like to try the beta version.

The only thing that's really interesting is whether they fixed their broken image compression algorithms or not. All the compacts of last year had excellent specifications, but the pictures turned out to be horrible unless viewed at low resolution.

Do want! And finally CSI's "enhance this or that in the video" would become plausible.

Sounds nice. I hope there'll be a review soon.

The only interesting part in this Sony point & shoot camera announcement would be if they finally fixed their image compression problem. Even though the hardware is superior, neither the HX9V, nor the HX100V, nor the TX100V can take good pictures because in the end the Sony image compression saves an awful looking, blocky, washed out picture which only looks at least acceptable at screen resolution. Unless they fix this, it's not even worth looking at any of the new cameras.

So basically if SOPA were active, I could shut down facebook by simply searching for such kind of picture, which I'm sure exists there.

So must every owner of a Sony Nex-5N in the UK now disable the picture effect where only red colours are displayed and the rest is black & white? Because that's a standard in the camera, there's no art behind it. Also, both pictures are awful. They should both have to pay a fine for wasting the court's time.

In such a powerful tool I miss simple effects which cameras have built in. Like e. g. the Nex-5N's Partial Color effect where you can turn a picture to grayscale while keeping one color (e. g. red).
