Johnnie: If you are interested shooting videos with the new Sony A5100, I hope you will take a moment watching my video sample and read my review here:
Beautiful result. It was quite a rig you were using there. What would be the reason not to use a dedicated video camera instead of this monster? I am asking this for a reason...Your review is well worth reading. Thank you. Keep up your excellent work, please.Respect. martti-s
I can put my RX100II on a pole and control it with my smartphone. It might be easy if you had three hands. Maybe I did not practice enough.Next thing, they will launch a dedicated viewing and storage unit...Is there a market?People are crazy, I place no bets.
Got mine brand new for a really nice price as shops are getting rid of the 'old' stock. How many times did the review mention "shooting experience"-? It made me giggle. Personally, I get my kicks from the stuff I see uploaded on the screen.Well, to each and every one of the reasons for choosing a camera are personal. I was looking for something pocketable to produce 'acceptable' picture quality. (5D III gives me all the "shooting experience" I want and a discal hernia on the deal).
On the negative side: The box had a very cheap feel to it and the manual is of no help at all. does But there are Kindle version guides for sale on Amazon at 10 dollars. Money well spent. An extra battery and an external charger are still on my shopping list and a protective case.
If this thing lasts in outdoors use is a question to be answered. Then again, I can buy a new one for the price of repairing a Canon L lens....
Nearly a thousand dollars for a 'normal' lens that weighs over 0.8 kilos.People absolutely want it...I'll bet that there will be quite a few of these marvels on eBay pretty soon.
A beautiful shot with nice, balanced colours, a beautiful subject and excellent technique.
Until recently, I have avoided shooting at full aperture because I really did not manage to put the focus where I wanted to. It turned out that my old 24-70 had suffered some physical damage somewhere along the line which explained my difficulties. Upgrade from 5D II to 5D III helped a lot, also.
I would like to know how you focus your shots. Do you select the point manually and shoot 'one shot', use the central point or how do you go about it?
I would appreciate your answer.martti_s
An interesting thought: Will there be an "ART" camera body out soon?A total re-think, an antigadgetarian fotographer's camera that looks, feels and functions like a real thing while remaining within the reach of people who live off their salary.
Like the red dot stuff but without the costly logo.They just might...
