  • Hey you should mount a GoPro to that baby.

    The other day my cat was under a bed, it was dark and the autofocus wasn't getting his face so I had to mf, the articulating screen meant I only had to...

  • I can't see it costing $699. That was the strangest part of the rumour - everyone who wanted a highly capable $699 camera got an a6000 already. The people holding out for an a7000 want something ...
  • Not quite - brands like Lexus at the very least do things like upgrade the electronics, seats, sound-proofing, bigger engines etc - and in some cases substantially change things like drivetrain...

  • David Beckham, Dmitry Medvedev, probably Kanye West...

  • Unfortunately though, they didn't make much money, and have closed the design studio pumping these rebrands out.

    I'm glad to see the back of them but it's never good to see a potentially great...

  • Jesus Christ fuego6, how do you even take pictures from your zimmer frame? Did we really just get an un-ironic 'in my day' comment on a tech website?

    The craft that went into using technologies of...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    I'm not at all convinced that the Nikon would have a faster more reliable autofocus. The saying 'DSLR's have better autofocus' does not apply when we are talking about an entry level DSLR and a...

  • Well yes =P I have a NEX-6 and have not bought an a6000 for that reason.. I just want the autofocus and the 24mp sensor (for the few lenses that need it). C'mon Sony I've been waiting 18 months to ...
  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    The XT-1 is a much higher spec camera than the 5300. The XT-1 has far more manual control. The Nikon only has one control dial - this will limit you if you intend to learn to shoot with more manual...

  • Commented on Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview

    The XT-1 is a much higher spec camera than the 5300. The XT-1 has far more manual control, but that only matters if you intend to use manual control. The Nikon only has one control dial - this will...

  • The thing about the a7000 is look at how little Sony would actually have to do: An a6000 with better build quality, another control dial, and a better EVF with digital leveling put back in. We'd ...
  • I take better pictures when I've got the settings on the camera right. Better manual controls on the Panasonic, for me, would lead to better shots than with the Sony. If Sony put the RX100 innards...

  • Fuji is a far smaller company, they release a good product as soon as they can, then continue working on the firmware after release.

    Frankly all the patching that goes on at Fuji concerns me as a...

  • Fuji is a far smaller company, they release a good product as soon as it passes muster, then continue working on the firmware implementing things they would have liked to release with.

    I never...

  • @Zeisschen, I believe they said that the small flange distance makes developing FF lenses for E-mount difficult, and not currently worth the R&D. Hopefully they will change their mind, their APS-C...

  • Have you tried an articulating screen? My last two cameras had them, and I used them all the time. Shooting your camera at waist level can have huge advantages. My best street shots were taken like...

  • @falconeyes the 5100 also significantly cheaper than both and has the versatility of changeable lenses with a much larger sensor. The a5100 isn't setting anyone's pants on fire these days but it...

  • @Morten - a big part of that is whether the manufacturer has given them samples, whether they have a PR firm breathing down their neck etc. Friends working in marketing for brands will phone...
