Al Valentino: No love anymore for us early XE1 users :(

"You can take great photos with the XE1? yes", exactly my point! Too many photographers get caught up with minutiae of technicalities rather than the taking of pictures. You can't add functionality to a Minolta X700 film camera, but you can still take great pictures with it, as I said, no camera is a dead horse unless it's broken.

How can a camera be a dead horse if it still works? You just use your photographic nouse, (if you have any) and take pictures.

rodoki: I just unboxed my Sony alpha Nex6 a few minutes ago.
I have several Panasonic Lumix's and a Canon Rebel.
The Sony, however, is the first camera I've encountered whereby I cannot simply recharge the battery in a compact charger!
Instead I have to connect a wire from the camera into the charger and thence into a wall socket meaning I cannot have second backup battery.
If I'm on vacation I can't simply leave a battery charging at a hotel room and go out and use my camera with a second battery.
I have to leave the WHOLE camera behind to charge!
Am I missing something here? It seems VERY odd.

You're correct, it's very odd and another fudge by Sony.

I don't know who designed this camera, but it certainly wasn't an active photographer. It would be a superb machine, but there's a massive design flaw. You can't use the self timer or an electronic shutter release when in HDR or Auto bracketing modes. Absolutely crazy!!! I've been in touch with Sony and they don't have any plans for a firmware update. I'm not sure if this applies to other Nex or Sony models, but be aware. This is the last Sony camera I will buy, I'll stick to Canon or Fuji in the future.
