On Cameras get 'smart' to stay competitive post (58 comments in total)

OK - interesting for those with iPhones or Android phones. How about those of us with others, like Blackberry and Nokia N8's?
How do these connect to Eye-fi cards or the Toshibas?

Is it possible to print out an image taken with one of these? If that is the case, then this will have plenty of adopters in the happy snap fraternity - all the images they take will then be in sharp clear focus - what a bonus!

Any of these available for Blackberry (OK - not a popular camera, but a very popular phone!) or for the Nokia N8 (best camera phone produced?)

Wow! The images speak for themselves..... Very interesting.

Do you have a favourite piece of software you would recommend that does it all? I guess that would be CS5, but are there other options that are not quite so dear?

On Preview:sonyslta65 (33 comments in total)

Thanks for the preview.... it gives insight into what the buttons all do, and where they all fit!

The first thing that srings to mind when I read this is A100 vs A700..... it appears to be in the same line as the A100 was when the A700 was launched (OK in comparison to the A77). To me, the A200 and other successors were never really there to replace the A100, since it has features that some of the other models lacked. This time, the A65 seems to be filling that niche!

Anyone else feel that way?

Excellent functionality.... Could you als oprovide a search by camera manufacturer or by mount?
