Valiant Thor: OK, but does it make good phone calls?
Yes, it also sends very good messages !! :-)
RedDog Steve: 2016 ?Only two of these are less than a year since being introduced.
Jonathan F/2: Lack of an EVF is a major con against the A5100. Any camera with no EVF/OVF should be bumped from contention.
“It is so.When YOU think so” ― Luigi Pirandello ―
Jorginho: It is a mystery to me how dpreview seriously says that the Sony A5100 is an incredibly compact cam etc in their final sentences. We are talking interchangeble lenses and we really know that many lenses of the Sony are far from being compact let alone being good. You'd expect more from any reviewer than just make the mistakes firsttime buyers make buy going for the body and forget about the importance of lenses.....
It's not seriously nor mystery it's business.
George1958: Yeh, it was always going to be able the forgone conclusion of a Sony is best verdict . the canon, Nikon and oly all have better lens and after market kit, imho better handling and menus too.
And you are right !!!!
Johannes Zander: Purchased immediately and hope to win the next Hasselblad competition... and if not that then Sony competition...
Also clarify, clarify and keep shadows and blacks +10 to +15
Good Luck Mate !!!! and don't forget to photograph wrecks, disasters, immigrants .... devastation in general and the prize is yours
M Jesper: These are great cameras, but if you're lucky you can find the good 'old' Olympus E-M10 with BOTH the 14-42mm and 40-150mm dual lens kit for less than that.
It's a very, VERY good starters kit. Good EVF, touchy-flippy screen, superb IBIS, superb sensor, advanced controls, and instantly fast AF, etc. etc.
E-M10 is one great value for money cam
Andrei87: And the winner is Fuji X-A2.
or Maybe D3300
How much DPR charges to review my skis ?
SETI: Sony again! Coincidence?
Emma Bull !! used to say that "coincidence is the word we use when we can not see the levers and pulleys.....";-)
That was Really "A M AZ I N G" waiting to see the rest of it !!!
SeeRoy: First define "Gadget".
A Piano for example !!!! ;-)
No sense at all
Petrogel: No. 2 photo is……"creative " ?????????i've got tons of creative photos !!!!!
JackMI find this photo so shaky that has nothing creative about it , no matter if you, Brian or even the artist himself in a moment of mental clarity thinks of the opposite .Actually i'm not surprised myself that this pic was one of Prince's favorites
Brian There are also some rules that are not meant to be broken, like life or photography or even music, so you can call it Jazz but not Reggae.You say Prince liked this one most, well, if you say so !!but even that, doesn't make this photo "creative" .
JackM: Wow. I didn't even know acid throwing was a thing. I hate uncivilized people.
Absolutely agreed, but as far as i know (during our short human history) West always wanted to, Christianize, civilize but most of all, to capitalize the rest of the world.I also agree that people need to evolve but most of all we need to stress our societies we live in, but that needs to work our ego
osu9400: I'm an IT manager at a large company. The most exciting thing about Win10 is that it is one operating system that run on many platforms (phones/laptops/desktop/tablets/xbox/watches/IoT/etc). This will allow developers to truly write an app once and have it run on all these devices. This has long been the dream of computer science. As a consumer you won't have to buy an app for each device - the app you own will run cross platform and become responsive to your screen size. Think of how some websites have desktop and mobile versions. This is the idea for apps. As an example, if this works, I'll be able to replace $40,000 Cisco teleconf units (that users hate) with an XboxOne running a Skype for Business app!
About the phone, if you read the rumors, Microsoft will release a premium phone under the Surface brand late this year or early next. I think it will be Intel based and not a traditional mobile chipset.
It was never the same operating system there were always different versions
Music Hands: I'm so disappointed it is lacking a 3 inch LCD flip out display, and 300 shot battery. Maybe I'll be interested in the next version... (sigh)
<<No touch screen again sony ? Complete fail !!! >>;-)
