Hi I am the happy owner of both an A-57 and A-77 and my "dilemma" is simply if I should add an A-99 to my collection or if I should spend the money on the Sony 70-400 G2. I love to shoot macro of insects and flowers and for that I have good glass but I also really love large animals and birds, but I lack proper glass for that. My way of thinking is that in terms of being able to shoot the subjects I prefer the right choice would be to go with the 70-400 G2 on the A-77 and then postpone the...

Hi everyone, How usable is live view on the 6d in terms of focus speed and lag?  I normally favor a center-point only focusing on my cameras, but this can be less than ideal when handing the camera over to a stranger to take a picture of my family (i.e., background in focus with blurry people).  Also, I'm wondering if this would be a viable option for my wife who desires a simpler, more P&S experience. I am skeptical, since my last foray with contrast detection AF was a canon powershot G2...

I want to buy a new camera to take pictures of my Nephews son growing up. My only camera is a Canon G2 which served me OK but I have always been disappointed with the focus of during low light conditions.  Any movement under low light would blur.   The low light shots could be birthday parties or at indoor game facilities. The other pictures I want to take will be sporting events like Little League. Most of those photos come out fine due to the lighting. For my next camera I would like a good...

HelloThis is my first question on this forum although I have been following it for some time.I am thinking about getting the Panasonic G5 to replace my G2. I have two questions before ordering.1.  Will I see a noticeable improvement in IQ?2. B&H states that the current price, ($498.00) is only until February 23 but Amazon, which sells the G5 for the same price doesn't mention an expiry date for that price. Does anyone know if this price is going to last for a few more weeks. The reason I ask...

Hello, i have a Sony a57.I'm making a project where i need to make use of the WB to tell something. So i want to purposely make it really bluish, or red or greenish.Due to the fact that the a57 has no way to write the values of the Kelvin  (contrary to Canon 60D, for example), i am Setting it Custom with sheets of many colours. Orange, Blue, Green, etc. However, when i do so, a message appear (the photo, sorry for the bad quality. My mobile cam sucks, but i was already using my only camera)...

Hi,I just picked up a G6 on Ebay and was looking into the two converter lenses, if  I could find ones at a decent price.  I ran across a Canon WC-DC58 cheap (not the N version) but most of the info out there is on the N version. For those of you who have experience with the G6 and WA converters, how well it works on the G6 compared to the Canon WC-DC58N? I know it's a .8 rather than the N's .7. The seller claims it will fit the G6, but almost everything on the Internet I found says it was...

So, I want to shoot some video for Youtube and perhaps DVD's, but just as I put the last piece of my kit together (a Sennheiser EW100 g2 Lav mike kit) I lost my camera kit (EPL-1 w pany 20mm lens and the mic adapter). So now I'm looking to buy an EVIL kit that would be suitable for video with a good mic in. Is the Olympus + the mic adapter still the way to go or is there a better m43 camera out these days with integrated mic in. I'm looking for the cheapest reasonable option, rather than the...

So I am one of those Panasonic G10 users who really loves the camera. But, the time has come where the G10 isn't really fast enough for tracking moving kids, and animals. I really wish Panasonic made a G20 as I don't care for the articulating display of the G5(and rather keep that extra weight towards a better lens) and want a built in. The GX1 is closer, but lacks a built in EVF, and handling of the G10. Since, that is not the case, I am looking at the G5. How would the G5 fair for action...

I'd like to buy my first proper camera and I'd appreciate your help. I really want to do some photography that's good for both preserving memories and being creative. In particular I, like many people here,  really want to work with narrow depth of field and ideally nice bokeh. Most of the photos I want to take can be done very well with an iPhone or the very old Olympus PAS we have (which still  takes fantastic pictures). But narrow depth of field escapes my current cameras and I have a...

It's been a while since I have kept up with this, but will either the A37 or A55 work for shooting birds in flight, and moving animals? or would the EVF, and possibly lens selection be the deterring factor here? I was thinking getting either one of the aforementioned SLT and solely use it with one the longer zoom lenses for wildlife. I take the A55 would better for such scenario since it has a larger buffer, but then I take the A37 has the better sensor(which has it's own advantages)?My other...
