why not buy NEX-3N for $500how much bigger and with 3 times zoom
how much smaller compare with NEX-3N which is $500why should anyone buy thistoo much money to throw away?
with new NEX-3N only $500 on the high end and smartphone at the low end IQ wise, there is no reason why all these point and shoot 20MP garbage should exist in this world
They deserve to die. the 1/2.3 point and shoot reach its highest point in 2009 and all downhill from that pointI wish those are still available12MP CCD sensor 3X zoom F2.8Why are they extinct? Am I asking too much?
Benarm: The most interesting thing about A58 is the supposedly improved sensor with 1-stop better noise performance over its predecessor. Can't wait to see DXOMark results.
I read the abovenowhere mention the 1-stop better noise performance
This is the big deal !This is suppose to be the true next generation Sony APS-C sensorI assume it will also go into the next NEX 5 and 6 series
1 stop noise improvement is huge if confirmBut can this really be true? If so APS-C would equal full frame at least in noise performancesounds too good to be true but really exciting news
210 gram is indeed quite amazing for a APS-C sensor camera with integrated flash
Nectar D Or: Just counted 9 (!!) NEX bodies announced by Sony in about 2.5 years.
How can anyone keep track? Is there really a difference between those cameras?
I find it hard to take the guys at Sony seriously. Either there is something really wrong with those bodies that need to be replaced every 6 months, or this is just the marketing people ordering the engineers around.
this may be the reason"Weighing approximately 210g, the NEX-3N is the world's smallest, lightest interchangeable-lens camera with a large APS-C sized sensor"
to site editor
there is an errorboth HX300 and TX30 specification list CCD sensorthat is most likely incorrect
Can someone tell me what is the difference between TX30 and TX20they are basically the same and TX20 is also the same as TX10Oh wait it now has 18MPis it actually getting worse?
at least 16MP is better than 20 MPCCD sensor also better than CMOSBut I bet the lens is no good, if it is a decent lens it may be OK
The problem is not 24MP sensorthe problem what lens you need to use in order to get that 14 MPwith kit lens you won't even get 16 MP let alone 24
if not going to purchase top quality glass just kidding yourselfWhat you really get is bad high ISO performance
NEX system most needed lens is a premium standard zoom below $1000 to replace the kit lenswhy there is none in 3 years is not acceptable to serious photographernow NEX is only for the public
biggest problem is no OSSno use at high ISO at night
with no OSS this lens is good only for daylight and for someone want a small cameraprice is definitely too highworth at most $200 to me
with no OSS you automatically lose at least 2 stop at low light high ISO situationthis is like a F5.6 lens at high ISO compare to a lens with OSS
Why no one seem to talk about the new feature in TG-2A mode which allow you to pick apertureThis is the biggest improvement over TG-1 in my opinion when camera may pick a small number aperture and run into diffraction
I think the most important feature is now A mode is available. Only P mode is available in TG-1
peevee1: So the only changed spec is 15m/50ft vs 12m/40ft before? And the better colors.Why would they update anything when there are absolutely no formidable competition for the TG-1?
also this is newThe new Microscopic Macro function boosts zoom magnification from 4x to 14x** with no noticeable loss of image quality from one centimeter away for true macro results. When the doubly powerful Super Resolution zoom is used, aspects of the natural world usually invisible to the naked eye, such as veins on a leaf and the details of an insect's eye, are revealed.
http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/PENTAXQ/PENTAXQA.HTMPentax Q review indicate" the Pentax Q uses a smaller sensor with more pixels than the Canon G12 and Nikon P7100, for example, diffraction limiting sets in at above f/2.8"now with A mode can keep aperture below F2.8
There is an A mode on mode dialTo be able to control aperture is very importantnot sure if there is A mode in TG-1anyway no RAW is disappointing
