dpfan32: A1 and M1 are pretty Cheap cameras ... But when the target buyer wants to buy a new lens he will realize that the lenses are very very expensinve. I don't get the point why Fuji sells cheap cameras as well and offers only overpriced lenses. If you want cheap lenses there is no alternative to Canon EOS

Quite inexpensive but still I won't call them cheaps. Canon 18-55 costs 140 EUR and the 55-250 180 EUR new on Amazon it's half the price.

On article 2016 Roundup: Interchangeable Lens Cameras around $500 (209 comments in total)

I had the a5100... Cheaper lenses which came with the camera 16-50 and 55-210 offered a disastrous image quality...
Shooting birds without optical viewfinder is simply impossible...
I returned this little camera with tops specs which is simply impractical...
My Canon 100D /SL1 offers what I need: optical viewfinder and excellent cheap lenses. Sorry Sony

Jerry ZZ: the last thing I need is to make the barrel distortion in my gopro even more pronounced.

Be glad that you don't have a Sony action cam, distortion is even worse there... Much much worse

dpfan32: Not even 60 fps on 4K ... Dead on arrival...

Maybe it's too expensive to implement in consumer camera right now? Overheating?
Only 4000 USD professional Sony video cameras have 60p ... It's too early to have 4K IMHO. Without 60p everything with fast movements looks too blurry for me. 24p in cinema I HATE! The Hobbit 2 ind 48 fps was a dream to my eyes!

dpfan32: I've seen some reviews on YouTube. The HTC camera tends to overexpose hightlits. There are plenty of manual controls but that's not the point in a phone camera. The iPhone produces the best balanced photos. The aren't the sharpest, they aren't the most colorful but the dynamic range is always outstanding without manual control.

I have the Nexus 5x and the iPhone 6.
The 5x makes sharper and more vivid pictures and has less grain. The images are simply more pleasant to the eye. I like the output a lot!
But: Camera start up slower, more trigger delay. HDR on the Nexus is slow in shooting and slow in composing it when you open the gallery (on the iPhone in comparison it's almost invisible when you shoot HDR). It's quite annoying sometimes. Camera stutters very often on startup form lock screen, sometimes there is a wrong orientation of the viewfinder, WTF... I had few times the experience that the 5x camera won't start at all! Once the 5x completely froze away, I had to restart it. No such ridiculous issues on the iPhone. This makes the Nexus 5x the worse point and shoot experience between the two. Simply take out the iPhone and shoot works always flawlessly.
But again the output of the Nexus 5x is slightly better (when in works).

capanikon: DXO is generally overrated.

Look where the Lumia 1020 and the 808 are. DxO very technical analysis doesn't mean best picture quality at all.

PKDanny: All Camera DSLR are BETTER!!!

I had a old Canon EOS 1100D with the 18-55 is II and the photos were awful. Not comparable to my iPhone 5. Ok than with my 50mm is II and 24 mm STM the pictures turned out fantastic.

dpfan32: Everybody raving abut Sony sensors an bashing Canon.
Look at the studio comparisson an take RAW and compare to let's say Canon 750 D. There is no real advantage of Sony over Canon. Some parts of the test image look on one camera better some on the other camera. Not to mentione that the skin tones on the Canon are superior to the pale Sony colors.
I don't like Canon not introducing 4K in the newest cameras but still picture quality is at least on par.

I owned a Sony a5100 and wasn't amazed of the quality at all. Too much contrast in the image, shadows always too dark for my taste but the colors I disliked most. Maybe all this can be fixed in Lightroom but so can be done with canon cameras. The worst part were the awful lenses. I don't have the money fo high end lenses. What Canon has to offer at the low price category is far superior to the cheaper Sony lenses: for example the Sony 55-210 is a waste compared to the 55-250 STM. The 16-50 Kit lens is simply garbage at least my unit was. I compared the a5100 to the RX100 and the Canon EOS100D sent back the a5100. Nice video, small package but bad lenses and bad colors on photos for my taste.

In reply to:

William J Brown: So, if I keep local copies (in Windows and Mac formats, as helpfully suggested in the earlier comments -- thanks for that, too!), and I continue to use Picasa on my desktop(s), will I be able to PUBLISH to Google Photos in the future??

(Maybe that was clearly stated at the outset, but I've become "less clear" after reading the 65 and counting comments below)

Thank you :)

... but Picasa looks absolutely crap on MacBook Retina display :(

Sony didn't learn the lesson. Even Samsung is back to 12 MP... Sony makes very bad smartphone cameras IMHO. Watercolored blurry mess....

On article Hands on with Sony's a6300 and G Master lenses (306 comments in total)
In reply to:

Thorgrem: Still no good enough standard zoom for APS-C. The new 24-70 can be nice but not for APS-C. So this A6300 is still part of a crippled system. Nice that Sony released a new A6xxx body but they again forgot about lenses for APS-C. After al these years I think they will never learn.

They sell primary bodys with this cheap crappy 16-50 shard... Most users don't take it off anyway! So why not selling this camera for a very expensive price with this very cheap lens... good deal... for Sony at least it is!
