  • Created discussions Stealth NEX-7 replacement?
    So, the folk over at SAR are telling us that maybe — just maybe — Sony might drop a FF NEX-7 replacement in the chute at PhotoKina. What I want is an A7000, not a NEX-7Alpha (or whatever). And ...
  • I'll second the comment about the 8mm Rokinon fisheye. Put it on and you'll never want to take it off. For close quarters like in Venice it's great. Personally I've given up on DSLRs for travel. ...
  • Sorry, but I don't agree with your basic premise at all. You're going to be in France for 2-1/2 weeks and you plan to spend your evenings holed up in your hotel room processing your pictures? Time ...
  • No rumors, just the facts: Fact: there is a PhotoKina show in September. Fact: at some point in early September Ricoh will announce a number of new cameras. The folks here on this forum will be ...
  • Three things that keep me (a current NEX-7 owner) hoping for an A-7000 this year: • Sony (and Minolta who they bought) always use the 3, 5, 7, 9 numbering system.  I think that the NEX-6 and now ...
  • If anyone is really, really concerned about theft of camera equipment, then get a cheap compact camera. Even iPhones are being stolen (at a alarming rate I understand) these days. Thieves work ...
  • Yes, I was referring to a possible small FF DSLR. One big thing Canon has going for it that Sony can't come close to is its incredible lens and accessory selection. I've built up a nice Canon lens ...
  • Funny you should mention that. I did pull my back out a few years back when I slung my 40+ lb cam bag with the 5D3 onto the airport security belt. I still pack the 5D3 most of the time but I have ...
  • Created discussions If small sells, sell small
    The boys over at DigitalRevTV did a comparison between the Canon 5D3 and Sony's mirrorless FF, the A7. Say what you will about Kai and his gang, they do come out with some unusual reviews. The ...
  • What I'm missing with the A6000 is the better EVF, touchscreen and Tri-Navi control. And a better sensor.
  • Now that's just what Sony needs to do. After they confused the hell out of  us dropping NEX and going to the cockamamie Axxxx designations that are supposed to mean APS-C mirrorless.
  • Sorry, I don't buy it (and I wouldn't buy it if it was true).  A FF A6 would have to have features removed to fit a lower price point. But an A7000 in roughly the same price point could have to ...
  • Three things lead me to believe that the rumors of the A7000's demise this year are premature. First of all, Sony model numbers always use 3, 5, 7, and 9.  It goes back to their Minolta roots. The ...
  • It appears that Sony is finally getting around to updating the NEX-7. Speaking purely for myself I say it's about time. I happen to think that the NEX-7 is the best form factor for mirrorless ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions. I'm already familiar with Winter Park, in fact that's where I'll be staying. I agree that it's a neat place with lots of photo ops. They also have a parade after ...
  • So, how long have you worked in the Disney PR department? I am of course just kidding and I do appreciate the feedback. I really just want to avoid the traffic and the crowds and the cost at Disney ...
  • Created discussions Kennedy Space Center
    I'll be in Orlando for the week between Christmas and New Years and I'm looking for some good places to shoot. Disney is out of the question for a number of reasons (like, I was at EPCOT in ...
  • I'm sure that we will soon see a mid-entry level and pro-entry level camera in Sonys attempt to market a special camera for every conceivable market segment. I always felt that their marketing ...
  • I love wide angle all the away to fisheyes (but not circular fisheyes). I know that I shouldn't overdo the fisheye shots, but every time I put on my fisheye lens I can't take it off! Anyway, ...
  • The contortions that the Users are using with the QX modules in the Sony promo videos have got to be a primer on how NOT to get sharp shot from  a digital camera. I'll give Sony credit for thinking ...
