Very impressive detail in this image.
Great article and about time someone finally promoted these full featured alternatives to paying big $$$ for Photoshop to do most of, if not all the editing we need to do. Paint Shop Pro and ACSee Pro as well as Paint.net have been able to do everything I need to do. Well done!
Digitall: ACDSee Pro 6 is a option too among many others for image editing, and can manage RAW/DNG files, here the list: Supported RAW Formats http://www.acdsee.com/en/support/raw-formats
i can also add to your list Paint Shop Pro X5 Ultimate which is very competative in features and around $70.00 right now. I have never owned PS and never will because of Adobe's greed on pricing.http://www.corel.com/corel/product/index.jsp?pid=prod4900069&cid=catalog50008&segid=8100006.
GodSpeaks: Has Sony solved the overheating problem?Do they still have the worldwide 30 minute recording limit?No 1080P30.How long is it going to take Sony to make NEX viable (for video users)?
Buy a video camera if you want good video! This camera ROCKS and I have laid my Canon EOS 60D to rest. Anyone want it?
Picturenaut: I really appreciate that Canon made this looong awaited leap into the mirrorless market finally. Now I hope that they will augment its new series soon by a true rangefinder given they call it "M" like Leica's classic system. It should provide more hands-on control of main settings like a real camera. EOS-M looks like a menue driven thing like a NEX. I hate scrolling through menus when I want to shoot with manual control.
1/4000 s and 4fps is not breathtaking but would be okay for me, if I want real punch I'd take one of my DSLRs anyway. Just talking "M": a Leica M9 does only 1/4000 s and 2 fps... but I've seen many great street pics made with it.
Sorry, the NEX-7 is not menu driven but has three very convenient thumb wheels to do everything manually if you wish, fully programmable. Try one first before making an incorrect assumption.
Edmond Leung: This is the camera what we need ! Simple, small, light weight and able to use the whole range of Canon lenses.An excellent choice for business travel.I will take this one instead of NEX or other cameras with smaller sensor.
NEX have the same sensor and the NEX-7 has an excellent EVF so I plan to stick with Sony and let my Canon 60D and 3 lenses sit idle. It is so much easier to carry an NEX around and get equal if not better images. Too bad Canon was so slow to release this camera
Chris Cuennet: Ridiculous!... What interest to put lenses Canon on a NEX?... Nex is made to have a " compact ", small and light equipement, the one who wants the excellent objectives Canon will prefer to put them directly on a case Canon with a sensor who is called a sensor... Really ridiculous!
Sorry, the NEX-5N has a "real" sensor the size of the APS-C used by Canon. I think you should do some research! This NEX-5N equals or surpasses images from my Canon 60D and would welcome being able to use my Canon lenses on this Sony.
The Sony has an Exmor™ APS HD CMOS sensor (23.5 X 15.6mm)
