  • I'm taking the memory card out of the camera and putting it in a card reader. The computer shows the card as locked, but the camera doesn't.
  • I shoot a lot of video with my NEX 5R. I have sequential naming on. This works for still, but not video. For instance, if I shoot up to image 1003 and video 12, then wipe the card, still continue ...
  • I shoot RAW + JPG. On a 16 MP camera, that's about 20 MB/shot. My $35 90MB/sec 64 GB SD card can hold about 3000 pictures. If you can afford a camera, you can afford an SD card which will take way ...
  • I think it's terrible that ovens automate keeping things at a constant temperature and people don't have to manage a fire to cook their cornbread properly anymore.
  • Replied in Why monopods?
    Tripods take up limited floor space. Monopods less so.
  • I'm with the people who thing this doesn't sound like a very demanding application. You'll want a wide-angle lens, though the wide end of a stand point-and-shoot is likely wide enough and ...
  • So you don't think that rights ordinary people have, as they relate to photography, is a topic worth covering?
  • I think a lot of the issue was the quality of early video cameras and editing systems. It looked better to shoot & edit on film, then convert. Cheaper productions got shot on video during this ...
  • Sure, plenty of players can play 1080p files if you throw them on USB or something, but you can't make a 1080p60 Blu-ray. This means that if you are aiming for this form of distribution, you have ...
  • It can output a 60p signal, but the blu-ray spec only allows 60p for 1280x720. 1920x1080 is only available at 60i, 50i (former PAL territories only), 23.976p and 24p.
  • A larger film camera just takes a bigger piece of film. Photosensors are complicated electronics. Also, there's more demand for quality with larger sensors, so they are made to more exacting ...
  • Replied in Nonsense.
    That's not quite the whole story. Slower rates were common in the silent era, despite not looking good. 24 got standardized with the advent of sound because it was slowest where they could keep ...
  • Also Sony Cyber-shot WX300. It's smaller and cheaper, but less-featured. No GPS, for instance. I'm not sure if you can pair to a cell GPS.
  • I think your only good options right now are Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 and Canon PowerShot SX280. I haven't used either, though I've used predecessors. This review has a fairly detailed comparison. ...
  • Created discussions camera colors
    Why is it that the more expensive a camera is, the less likely it is to have color options? I'd love to get an a6000 in the red NEX 3s came in, or the blue Cybershot TF1s come in. Are black and ...
  • Created discussions new e-mount video?
    The Sony NEX-VG series had been an annual release, but the last one was in 2012: the VG30. Has anyone heard numors about a new model incorporating the features that have been added to the still ...
  • If you're shooting for a venue that does films, that may be the only supported framerate. For instance-Blu-ray only supports 1080p at 24 fps and if you shooting 60, you'll have to interlace or do ...
  • This doesn't help with your main issue, but if you need a cane anyway, I'd find one with a camera screw in it for an easily accessible monopod.
  • Created discussions Surgery for a rat
    My rat, Gabrielle, developed a lump on her hip. She didn't notice and seemed to enjoy herself like any other rat. The lump was cancerous, so I had it removed. The surgery was more complicated than ...
