Since I teach a workshop on iPad and iPhone photography at the local university, this might be useful.

I have a few projects that can benefit from a camera such as this. Lovely form factor.

On Just Posted: In-depth Sony SLT-A77 review article (225 comments in total)

Sony SLT-A77... big and fun. Not much of a change in form factor from a 1952 SLR. Now, if I had Sony's NEX 5 or 7 camera, that would more contemporary.

On my little NEX camera, I would barely (yes, barely) have a small lens attached. I wouldn't like anything bulbous distorting my camera's feng shui. This Sony combo would be a great travel companion. No, I am not Ansel cruising the desert in my SUV, taking pix with my trusty 8x10 Deardorff.

Actually and not surprisingly I rarely use a zoom and never a telephoto. Maybe, just maybe a basic pancake lens would be okay. Since I am an ol' skool kinda guy, I convert most of my color to B-dub anyway. Wouldn't that be a fun and surreptitious way to go?

I am sure the pix would be fine for exhibition and publication. What more do you want?

In reply to:

f_stops: love to see a shoot out between this and the Nex/1.8.

A fully compatible EOS>Nex adapter (come on conurus) will make life interesting (and lens choice incredible) for a Canon + Nex kit. I have an Nex 7 on order and not sure which gear I will slim down (5dII or M9).

If I had NEX 5 or 7 camera, I would only have a small lens attached (not bulbous) most of the time. It would be a great travel companion. No, I am not Ansel cruising the desert in my SUV, taking pix with my trusty 8x10 Deardorff.

Talk about a niche market lens.

By the way, why don't many of you nerdy posters show your mug. I guess... you only like to be on one side of the camera. Too bad. Show your face!

You haven't been reading the countless DPReview articles on Canon and Nikon lenses. Yes, Canon is "almost" as good a Nikon. Veritas vincit.

A Pentax Auto 110, reincarnated. Very cute and colorful, like Japanese Ganguro Girls.

On Sony NEX-7 high-end APS-C mirrorless camera first look article (355 comments in total)

I would love to see comparison photos from the NEX-7 and the SLT-A77. One has a pellicle mirror and the other.... (I think) does not. I found the SLT-A77 pix fuzzy. Maybe without the mirror the NEX-7 will be sharper. Maybe. Enquiring minds would like to know.

The Sony SLT-A77 sample pix look horrible. They missed quite a bit of detail.

On Nikon V1 and J1 - hands-on first impressions article (245 comments in total)

I had my hands on a Fujifilm X100 at Samy's Camera in Pasadena today. The electronic viewfinder was very disappointing. It looked horrible. The body was only okay... not any better than a 60s budget Yashica Electro 35. Again, not much new or better here. Don't buy it unless you are willing to be upset when they finally fix the viewfinder and menus.

The new Nikon cameras are just simple efforts to appease the point-and-shoot crowd. Apparently these folks like gaudy colors and simple style. Most pros will pass on these crayola cameras and stick with their more substantial stuff. Yes, my daughter would enjoy the new Nikons. I wouldn't mind having a V1 with a pancake lens for snapshots at a party... only.

Can you shoot video of an indoor event... like a art opening. That is typical of where I would take such a camera.
