Just been pointed out to me there are silicone body covers that give a fair measure of protection from the elements for A6000. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xsilicone+A6000.TRS0&_nkw=silicone+A6000&_sacat=0 Have you any comments on how well they work in use? Amount of protection in each key area and against what? How easy buttons and use is with it on? Drop protection? Have you extended a cover in any way to protect the other areas? (I...

Mk 1 versions of RX100 seem prone to develop random switching on due to the "play" button presumably "shorting". This means that just sitting on a table, untouched the camera will just switch on and maybe switch between replay and shoot multiple times. Several dozens of people have reported this issue (it seems fixed in Mk 2 & 3). See here my thread in Sony Cyber-shot forum for background. One person reported "removing the metal shim behind the switch" to disable it making any contact but...

I want to step up my photography game with some filters.  I was going to just get a cpl magfilter but then I found out that nd and gnd filters can be really helpful to have.  I think I want square ones because they seem like they'd be easier to use and change out, cheaper maybe but if there's a good way to g with circular ones on the RX100 then that's cool too.  What's a good way to setup filters for me and are there any other filters that I really need?

I know this has probably been asked a million times but opinions change, firmwares occasionally get updated etc. etc. so... Basically, I'm kinda new to all this but I've wanted a "proper" camera for while but I know I'd never use a full frame DSLR enough to warrant the cost of body/lens/etc. I suppose I want what most do; big sensor, decent zoom, fast lens, EVF, Wi-Fi, good video and all in a small-ish all-in-one body so I can take it anywhere with relative ease. My current short-list...

There seem to be plenty of RX100 Mk3 and A6000 replacement rumors on the camera rumor sites, but I see little-to-nothing about a replacement for the RX10, which I think is older than both those cameras.  Anyone care to speculate why that is?   I know rumors are just that -- rumors. But often the rumors turn out to be mostly accurate, and the lack of buzz about an RX10 replacement makes me wonder whether Sony ever intends to produce one. I would love an RX10 replacement that retains the...

I have the back off RX100 and a flight soon. I'd like to disable the picture review button as it is causing random and repeated switching from off to review to take shots. Following Grom1300 posting I was inspired to have a go and he mentions removing a metal shim to disable SWITCH BLOCK CONTROL 149043511. But I can't make out what he means and it not obvious how to access the switch (between a mount plate and the rear outer casing) or how to disable it. A thin plastic shim slipped between...

Hi guys, from a newbie! I've just upgraded from a Panasonic TZ20 to a TZ70/ZS50. I need a light travel camera, an EVF and I thought I needed a long zoom. GPS/ touchscreen not necessary. I shoot a lot of cityscapes, buildings, architectural features/details, often high up on buildings (often in the bright sun of Italy, but also low-light church interiors, which the tz is not much good at) plants in macro, landscapes and the odd butterfly/bird! A bit of video, but far less than stills. However...

Looking for a decent high end compact for trips to London and out and about when the D600 is too big to lumber about.   Ruled out the RX100 and S120 and played with them in shop today and felt they were a bit too small without any decent grip. G16 was nice, large but not too bad for a day trip and the LX7 caught my eye as was nice size, but its pretty old now and the screen didn't seem that good. Any other suggestions would be great! Maybe micro 4/3 with a prime is another possible option,...

Is there a list of devices which are compatible with the wireless playback function 'View on TV'? Or any hints at adding the capability to an existing device -- for example, a raspberry pi running openelec? With the various bits of hardware I have in my living room, if I select 'View on TV', the camera searches, finds my roku 3, and does give me the option of selecting it  When I select it, the camera gives a 'connecting' message, the roku 'wakes up' and starts to run one of it's built-in...

Hey guys! Well this is well and truly my last shot. Sent my Sony DSC-RX100 to BAVS (Bennetts Audio and Video Services), a company directly linked with Sony, for repairs in Ireland. My pop up flash is broken and also the secondary dial is (the dial with the timer when clicked left and flash options when clicked right etc.) it works when pressed but not when rotated. BAVS got back to me this morning saying they can fix it for €485 ($545.05) as you can see this is absolutely insane! considering...
