With all the major advances in still camera video capabilities being talked about of late, I am starting to wonder which, if any, of my cameras would be best at capturing video? Because I really never use that feature. Here are my current cameras: Pentax K-3 Sony NEX-7 Olympus Stylus 1 Canon SX50 HS Panasonic LF-1 I've heard the NEX-7 is good at video, but that its sensor can't take the heat. But other than that, I don't know. One time I videotaped a short dance performance with the SX50...

I have now owned several Sony cameras and lenses, including a NEX 5n, a NEX7 and currently the A7. So far, I've had great luck with all of these, in not encountering problems or damage which required my having to interact with Sony. As I read more on these Sony forums though, I hear more and more negative comments of how users were treated by Sony when they run into problems. I realize that folks are much quicker to bitch about issues than to praise a company when they do a great job...

I've had this camera for several years and I still can't fathom this.   In Program auto mode the bottom soft key gives me focus settings options.  But all but one of the options are grayed out most of the time.  Yet once in a while, the options do work.  What controls whether the focus settings options work or not?

As a previous NEX 5n & 7 user, I just moved up to a A7 with kit 28-70 full frame lens. I realize how the APS-C lens trade-off thing works on the A7 body (vignetting, etc.) and the A7's menu setting to compensate when using these lenses on it by filling the frame with the cropped image, but at the expense of not being able to utilize the full sensor's capabilities. You're creating an image about one third as big as you'd get with a full frame lens, as a matter of fact. What I'm wondering here...

I have an NEX-7 and an a6000 and wish to video tape and shoot my wife's indoor martial arts black belt test.  It will be better than average indoor lighting, but limited natural light.  I am fairly new to shooting with the compact slr's or any slr's and I was wondering if it would be worth purchasing the Vario 16-70 lens to take the action shots.  I also have the sony 35mm and 20mm lenses.  I do not wish to use the kit lens as I am not very good at shooting and getting good results with that...

I have the nex 7 with the 24mm zeiss, the 18-55 sony, the 16 sony, and the 19 and 30 sigmas. Can anyone that has both the nex 7 and the a6000 comment about how any or all of the above lenses compare in the sides and corners?  The price of the a6000 is very attractive now.  Also, any other real life advantages to the a6000?  I know the specs of the evf in the a6000 are not as good as the nex 7, but many seem to feel that there is no substantive difference between the two.  I have always felt...

I have a NEX-7 and thinking about buying an A7R in the near future.  I also have some old Canon AF lenses that I would like to use on these cameras.  What type of adapters are best to use with the NEX and A&R?  I've seen some videos out there that show adapters for $15 and some a couple of hundred bucks.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear forum members, I kindly ask you for some advice. I am (still) a happy Nex-7 user. I shoot travel, landscape, portraits, street. Plus some video. Here are some of my pics at Flick https://www.flickr.com/photos/107514555@N06/  I own the 18-55 kit lens (which I find quite OK) + SEL1628 + UWA. I also have a bunch of old manual primes, mostly Canon FD, from the old good days of film, which I uses in some occasions, but not quite much when travelling, as I don't like to carry much weight. For...

I am seriously considering the purchase of a Sony Alpha A6000 (today!). As a former Nikon then Fuji user - oh, and I had a NEX 7 at one point, too - I am looking at the flexibility offered by the Alpha E-mount, given that it now has APSC and FF options, and that the A7 series has been so well received. However, probably a very dumb question which I have not been able to find the answer to: If I were to buy an (F)E-mount lens, like the Sony Zeiss 16-35mm or the 70-200mm, for use on the A6000,...

So, will shooting a Nex 7 with a lower pixel setting lower jpeg noise? What have Nex 7 users found as the best way to get good low light results?
