  • I'm sure you were not intending to, but your choice of comparisons is in grave danger of being offensive.
  • Replied in Stopped...
    Stopped as soon as I started using an EVF.
  • Then why do you think they are dropping GPS as a feature from cameras? In the article he suggests that phones have an advantage because they also have cell tower information to help them place ...
  • Gary is a very knowledgeable guy and his insights are good - in this case he is giving reasons why GPS is tending to be dropped from some cameras. ...and the premise is not so much that GPS is ...
  • Actually, he sorted it out quite civilly and amicably...
  • Well, it depends. If something is sold as refurb, returns or open box you can be pretty sure that someone may have used it before, whether it has been the demo camera in a shop or handed out to ...
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    Yes, longer battery life is a plus, but it isn't a big deal... plus you can fit a vertical grip which allows you to double the battery capacity.
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    I didn't say that if never done comparisons. And I think I could detect movement in a shuttered train, there are other clues than just seeing the world go past the window.
  • Replied in Sony A7ii fail
    In 7 years, I've never seen any influence of lossy compression on my shots; with the a700 (which had lossless and lossy), I always used the 'compact' version.

  • Replied in Sony A7s
    Sony A7s?
  • A fair outcome, and in all likelihood she will avoid similar hijacking of images in future.
  • Agreed, but no one feels great about representing a failure rate, even if it is small.
  • Look out the Gary Friedman guides - very good handbooks ...
  • Now again this surprises me - if I lay down 1000 or more of the local currency for a camera, I do expect it to be built to a higher build quality than a 3-400ish model. I expect better QA from the ...
  • And you get back to central spot by pressing the joystick in at the centre position.
  • Replied in Hang on...
    Hang on a minute guys... The OP has bought a top-of-the-line camera, has probably paid a fair amount of money for it, and it has gone wrong within three months. For that alone he is entitled to ...
  • You are right, their communication could have been better; an unsatisfied customer is not good for them, even if they never mention the case to anyone else - with internet forums about, it is a ...
  • Try doing a search in Windows explorer for files created/modified since you lost all the space - this should give you an idea of where your disk space is hemorrhaging to.
