  • 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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Agreed! I have the Sony 50mm f1.8 and it is one sharp lens! Used it on my 5N, 7, and now on the a6000 and with the new firmware update for phase detection sensors it definitely kicks butt!

    As for external battery chargers and the "NEX" series of cameras I can say that I won't get through a day on one battery with either the NEX-7 or the a6000. Fortunately, I've picked up a few...

    Setting the focus point is what we used to call "manual focus," and that is easily engaged by programming it to the AE button (or button of your choice), wherein if you have focus peaking and...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    I don't feel that the DPR rating scale accounts for making all camera types equal. It certainly shouldn't imply that an SLR is "better" than a ILC, or that a particular high rated P&S is better...

  • Commented on Sony a6000 Review preview

    As it pertains to the "downgrading" of the EVF, I owned the NEX-7 and It would be difficult to tell the view quality apart in the a6000 from that camera. I tend to believe Sony when they have said...
