  • ...we need the assault rifles to shoot down the drones, obviously! Why is that difficult to understand? -paranoid

  • Yes, and insurers selling us "drone insurance" to soften the blow of any litigation involving "emotional trauma" brought on by the mere sound of those nasty little electric motors.... ;-)

  • Excellent point! I was flying RC planes with my older cousin in the 50's in open fields, generally away from people and houses. It was simply thought to be a hobby and aircraft were generally...

  • I adopted the Sony mirrorless system over the past five years as a way to lighten my load and keep the quality. The much smaller APS-C Sony bodies like the NEX-5N, NEX-7, and a6000 have been...

  • Added 4 photos to their gallery
    Branford CT Dock: A black and white rendering of the docks near the Thimble Islands in Branford, CTState Capitol Building, Hartford CT: The historic state capitol building in Hartford is a feat of beautiful architecture and art in the "Eastlake Style" of the late 19th century.State Capitol Building - Hartford CT: Beautiful architecture and art in the Eastlake Style of the late 19th century, this view down through the atrium shows the classic lines through multiple floorsSunset on Wilkus Farm - Wethersfield CT: This is a classic Fall New England Sunset, taken with my A7 Sony supported on the roof of my car, providing the foreground reflection which looks like water.
  • I think I'll "hold" on any upgrade at this point. The trend of constantly "revving up" can be a ridiculous exercise in chasing one's tail, technologically. This is exactly what the tech companies...

  • I purchased years ago a simple screw on tripod threaded camera plate for $5. I use an OptTech sling strap with dual quick release connectors - one for bottom plate and one on side camera lug. ...

  • Wireless function is nice, but seldom used for sharing with others. If the main function is backing up camera cards while on a long assignment or vacation, I would do it for redundancy or to have...

  • I own the NEX-3N, a6000, and RX100 MkIII. Also, own OVF Nikons. I've seldom seen the screen result in editing software, or print result from film as being the same as what I saw in the...

  • Yes, so much of life is inconvenient. I simply went to YouTube for this and other vids where the embedding wasn't working....

  • Well, I suppose if I had to have Nikon over other brands that this camera would be more interesting, but having extensively used my Sony a6000 over the past several months I would say that aside...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    Thanks for the departure from the world of micro-managing camera gear. Many of us are looking for the perfect gear, while after buying said equipment fail to spend adequate time actually taking...

    dcolak, I don't know why you take issue with the EVF. I shot the NEX-7 for two years prior to owning the a6000 and the denser the pixels on the same size EVF always blocked out the shadows and...

  • I owned the WX300 and couldn't really accept the JPEG processing with regards to the excessive high ISO NR.  If you pixel peep to a large extent you won't like the results with the WX350 either, ...
  • Replied in Not Happy
    I've owned a WX350 for 3 months, now.  I had the WX300 and sent it back.  I feel that considering the sensor size, pocketability, and long zoom, as well as the intended use to not make gallery ...
  • The Zeiss glass was the determiner for me, over the a6000 (which I also own). Getting the Zeiss glass for the a6000 would set me back $1,000, granted probably an overall better lens. Still, I...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    If they can make a higher rez EVF that doesn't block up the shadows in low light, then fine. Otherwise, I have no issues with the 1.4M EVF. Where I'm spending real time looking at playback is in...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    The level gauge on my NEX-7 was nice, but the brain is a better all-round gauge and what isn't perfect on the original is very easy to level in post, IMHO...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    I'd love to see Sony make a G Lens, 16-85mm f2.8 walkaround lens for the a6000. Not sure if they can manage the top end being that long, but one of my favorites for my Nikon D series cameras was...
