Which camera would compete well with the nex 6..?Any opinions greatly appreciated.
I originally wanted to invest in a canon 700 d ( just missed out on a greal deal on the 600d ) but the fact tthat the viewfinder is optical swayed me.
Is there an all round dslr for amatuers coming from a bridge version with the following...EVF.Decent lens ( perhaps a Compact system type ) mid range 18-55mm or a little moreHigh ISOLighweight Flip screen, preferably one which can actually swivel round to take portraits...Touch screen is NOT necessaryAnd of course a decent battery which the camera makes tend to overlook...I feel Canon have lost sight where Nikon is concerned whereas Sony and Lumix seem to have come a long way and are doing what Olympus did in the 70s and the 80s...Again, any thoughts on the above..?
I am just about to purchase this camera on the basis that I can return it within 15 days if unhappy...I thought I had done my homework when decidng on the nex 6 but I am unable to find out if it is possible to override the function of having the screen on.It seems that the EVF switches on automatically when you place your eye close up to the corner of the camera ( thrus the screen goes off...) and the screen does the same when you move away from the EVF.
To my surprise there is quite a 'waste' of battery time...Living in a sunny country means the use of an EVF is much more practical.
Can anyone give any tips on how to make the battery last longer.Ideally, taking three on trips is practical. An external charger is wise too.And the pc method when on the go is practical as well. Nevertheless, total control over the screeen makes sense nowadays.I share your point too photosym. That does not make sense as a selling / marketing point. Is this the case with most sony cameras??
