  • Commented on Sony SLT-A77 II Review preview

    Honestly, after viewing Gary Fong's YT vid on this camera, I'm thinking that in order to get it to do what you want you need to spend a bit more time tweaking all of the multitude of focus and...

  • Can't add in-camera GPS without GPS radio hardware...

  • Commented on Samsung NX1 Review preview

    Hmmmm....
    Let's see. Fifteen Hundred for an NX1 body and I paid four-fifty for my new a6000 from Adorama this past holiday season. So, this body is worth more than three times an a6000? It is...

  • Agreed. Personally, I'm happier with my own presets and modifications of them. Tri-X was great in its day, but offers nothing special over the multitude of looks that are available in the digital...

  • On the face of it, it would appear that Canon had at least some aspects of the Sony RX10 in mind when building this camera - fixed lens, video/still hybrid design, high initial price tag...

  • Happy with LR 5.7 and PS 5. Nothing that I need to do that I can't with my images using either or both. My cameras don't seem to care, so neither do I...

  • I'm wondering if these pricey bits of tripod icing will yield better images. I've been shooting for almost 50 years under all sorts of conditions and have only found need for the precision that...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    I happen to have an A7, purchased last year, used on FM. Great deal, and affordable for a full-frame. I'm still learning it, even though I've been shooting NEX and Alpha Sony cameras for a while,...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    This is a common problem plaguing most camera sites - the fascination with new technology and great expectations for the follow-on models, whether they got them right and made improvements and...

  • The lens firmware update mentioned above in this article for the SEL2870 is not on the Sony support site. I just finished a chat with a representative and they stated that there is no firmware...

  • ...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...

  • 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...
