Slow news week in Seattle? Since you have nothing to do, why don't you tell us what happened with Sony at Photokina? Did they snub the show?

If you have a NEX7 you probably have already updated your firmware to take advantage of the much needed movie button disabling routine. But, they didn't go far enough with just providing the ability to disable the movie button. If you mistakenly touch the button while shooting stills, it pops up an annoying and time consuming message that tells you have disabled the movie function. Typically this happens at the exact same instant when you are releasing the shutter - damn, missed another one. An annoying little notification on the status screen would seem to be enough to alert you to the fact that you have disabled the function, instead of disrupting the whole capture sequence. A tiny bit of common sense would be helpful here Sony. Oh well, at least they are admitting that they screwed up when placing the button where they did in the first place.

On Richard Franiec creates accessory grip for Sony RX100 article (115 comments in total)

Please folks, get a grip. If you want a camera with a grip, buy one. If you buy one that lacks a grip (for whatever reason) and you perceive that an aftermarket grip would aid you when you are shooting, buy it. If you like grips, buy and use them, if you don't like grips (for whatever reason) don't buy them. Pretty simple .

If so inclined, buying a custom grip from Richard is the only choice if you value your investment. Top quality materials, expert machining, and a totally "factory" fit and finish. Did someone mention price? . . . . . Really? Keep up the good work Richard, you are an asset to the industry.

Besides, if someone asks about the grip (that they don't have) just tell them that it's a new model - RX100G - they will never know the difference.
