Hey, I have a budget of about 350$ to 550$ to buy new lenses, and i'd like to hear some recommendations. Currently I have the following lenses: SEL1650PZ :I especially like this lens a lot for traveling because, it is very small / light / portable. I find I use a broad range of focal length when traveling, so this lens as a decently versatile focal length, sometimes I wish it could go a bit further like 60mm - 70mm, but I wouldn't sacrifice the wide angle for that. It's great in daylight...

I'm really stuck here.  I've researched both heavily but I can't seem to make a solid decision. I will be taking video shots (not landscape, but shots that only include from the belly button up, and semi-macro pans of products). In retrospect, the camera most likely won't be more than 4 feet away from anything while shooting. Both are within $20 of each other so price is not of issue right now. The Alpha a3000 SEEMS to have better quality based on the videos of it I've seen, but there is...

Hi! Can you please help me with clarification of the NEX-3N lens size specification. Currently I use original 40.5mm wide lens (or this relates to filter size?), can I use 49mm or 52mm lenses on NEX-3N?  Where can I find info about NEX 3N lens sizes, compatibility and is it required to use ring adapter? My assumption is that picture quality will be better if lens filter size is larger...? Would it make sense if I invest in "Mount Adapter Ring For Tamron Screw Lens to Sony NEX Camera NEX-3" on...

Hi All - I have a NEX 3N, a vintage Vivitar 80-200mm Macro Focusing Zoom lens with a Fotga adapter and an inexpensive tripod. I tried taking shots of the moon on (what I thought was) a clear night from my balcony in East London (I know, not ideal). As a novice, I think I might be overreaching my abilities :-D I thought I had followed the right 'rules' - manual mode, ISO 200, manually set lens focus to infinity mark, manually set lens aperture to f16, exposure to 1/250s. I tried taking shots...

Hello,I'm a point and shoot user interested in upgrading to a Sony mirrorless camera. I would love to take pictures with better image quality (mainly use for vacations and pictures of family) and eventually I'd like to learn about the more advanced features the cameras offer. The a5000 is in my price range with the current sale price of $400, but I have some questions about the autofocus system to see if it would be better to wait for the price of the a5100/a6000 to drop.I had a chance to use...

Can anyone find any? An announcement from Sony about it perhaps? If no one heard of a fit one I'd love to hear about other suitable ones (please don't suggest the 5-10 meters ones). Thanks, Dean

I got an NEX-3n a couple of months ago, mainly for doing basic video stuff, and there seems to be a ton of noise when shooting in low light, even at low ISO's. I took a couple of really quick video shots in my dark basement. These are all shot at ISO 200, 1920x1080, AVCHD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bouK8gdPpto Still photos shot in the same setting have very low noise in comparison. Is this just a fact of recording video in such terrible lighting?

I do YouTube tech videos which are generally usually based inside, and I decided that I would upgrade to a new camera. What is the best camera that I can find used or refurbished (somewhere) for $200-$275? Here's a list that I made of cameras that I would be able to get for that much used. These are all either Compact SLRs or Full size DSLRs, because I feel as if Dslr's sort of have more "features" and "Customization" with ebing able to shoot in raw, and interchangeable lenses and what not,...

I have a budget of $300 for a new camera, and I'm looking for the best image quality I can get for the money. All the features it has are also very appealing. What would you say it excels at, and what would you say it doesn't do so well with?
