Hi All, I am looking for a Sony carry case that was part of my Sony NEX-5 bundle, which unfortunately was stolen from me and i would like to purchase the exact same one. However i cannot find it anywhere online (i bought the bundle in 2010) It looks like a small messenger bag with a Velcro lid that covers the bag with the word SONY on it. Big enough to fit my Sony NEX-5 and both 16mm and 18-50mm lens's It has netting at both sides and a small, zipped compartment at the front If anyone can...
I'm considering buying a mirrorless camera, as I will need a camera for school projects and vacations, I do not need the versatility that a DSLR gives me, so I would rather have a fairly compact camera. The NEX6 was my first goto, as it included the pancake 16-50 lens, which the NEX5 at that time didn't include. However now that the NEX5T includes it, I have been considering getting that camera instead. But now that the A5000 has been released, I am again questioning which purchase to go for....
Was hoping for some replies to my post in: My Experience with the new A6000 but seeing as it's hit the 150 post mark I thought I'd make a new thread. I own the old NEX-5 (almost 4 years old now) and I'd like to know how the low-light AF performance of the A6000/A7/A7R are (I intend to purchase one of these at some point). Also have a lot of legacy glass (FD and MD) along with the usual E-Mounts (1650, 1855, Sigma 30). I have a friends wedding I'll be attending in May and the kind of shots...
Pocket-ability, for me, is mostly about how thick a camera is from back to front, with a lens mounted. Width and height mattering less. After much research, I don't think there is any ILC camera (Pentax Q, MFT, APS-C), with a lens mounted, that is thinner than a Nex-5 with the 20mm F2.8. Is that right? Thanks... P.S. A follow-up question might be this...what is the thinnest lens available for each sensor size? 1) MFT 2) APS-C
I recently bought the 5R and installed firmware v. 1.02 immediately. I wanted to get the most out of the camera so I purchased a Camera Guide by David Busch covering the NEX-3 and the NEX-5. The firmware update he mentions in the guide is version 3 which should add a 3D Panorama facility to the Shooting Mode wheel. I found an update file (NEX-5V3_Update1010a.exe) which I downloaded, thinking this was the one he mentioned. However, the update process didn't succeed. I can only guess that it...
I shoot some videos with Sony Nex-5T, after I transferred my AVCHD video into computer and I realize there are date/time stamp on my video. I try to shoot a video in MP4 format, but the date/time stamp doesn't appear. Anyone know how to turn it off in AVCHD format file? The date/time stamp only appear in AVCHD file but not MP4. Thanks.
I recently sold MY Sony NEX5r to get a RX100. I brought and open box rx100 home and realized how much i actually like the WIFI of the NEX. I sold the NEX5r for 375. While in the return line at best buy to return the RX100, a woman was returning a new NX300. Since it was technically an open boxed i offered to buy it, knowing that it had wifi, when they told me i could get it for $335 plus tax. I brought it home ( the box picture below). I should have done my research a little, but seemed like...
