Sorry, this is going to be a long one... My wife and I have been doing Wedding Videography for a few years now and this year we would like to do photography as well. I've been a second shooter before (using Canon). My wife has done many family/child sessions and this year we will have a couple of paid photography events. Our current gear (I have lots more but selling the rest) includes the following: Sony A7S Panasonic GH4 Panasonic 12-35 2.8 Panasonic/Leica 25mm 1.4 Metabones Nikon to m43...

For about 2 years we have owned a Sony NEX 5n camera, but we found out that changing lenses is not our 'thing' and although we like the image quality and options of the Sony we want to go back to either a compact camera with sufficient zoom or a bridge (although the last ones are a bit chunky). However we do not want to lose too much of what we are used too with the Sony NEX 5n regarding overall image quality. We understand compact camera's have smaller sensors, however we would like to see...

I have a Nex5n with the kit lens and the Zeiss 24mm, I am getting ready to purchase the Zeiss 16-70mm and my question is, should I invest an additional $550 in a A6000 or stick with my NEX5n?

Hi, Currently I have a NEX5n and a NEX6 that I've had since my A77 and NEX3 were stolen. I definitely enjoy their portability (2 camera+lenses in a slingshot). Having become a bit disillusioned with phase AF in the past (for fast primes) fast legacy/new manual glass has seen a lot of use lately. For outdoor in daylight sport / people / movement I've been using the 55-210 with mixed but OKish AF results and for non-quick animals outdoors in daylight the Minolta  MF 300 4,5. Have an LA-EA2 and...

I recall seeing past posts about, for example, the NEX-5N overheating during extended video use. With upcoming holiday sales, was wondering about models in about the $500 and under (dependent on upcoming sale prices): are there certain models that do/don't overheat with extended video use? What about the Alpha 5100 or 6000, in particular?

After 2 years of usage my NEX-5N shows Camera error message on the screen and shutter click sound become double. It is not happening all the time, but it happened sporadically. I check the shutter count and it is only 1.25k. How much can it cost to change shutter? --http://mycasualsnaps.blogspot.com

Hello all, Just a quick question. As you know, IR remote conroller is disabled on cameras before A6000 (such an annoying situation), so my question is, in HDR or bracketing mode, can we trigger the shutter (of nex-5N 5R- 5T-A5100) with shutter release cables that can be easily found in ebay ? (to avoid camera shake) many thanks for answers. Best regards...

Hi! I have a 9 year old son who shows some interest in photography and videography. Would like to buy a cheap camera for him. Cheap because he will probably break it soon. But tough compacts are too expensive, even old ones, and their photo quality is too bad. I own a full Olympus m4/3 system and I gave him my old Olympus E-P3. It's a very well built camera, it doesn't break if you drop it on asphalt from 4 feet height. But, since it was 3.3 year old it recently stopped working. Shutter...

Folks, I am here in the UK and I used my NEX-5n camera in a dust storm in Morocco. I got some awesome shots but my camera feels like there is dust inside now :). The shutter click is not as snappy and I can almost feel the dust when I zoom the lens and click etc. Otherwise - the camera takes awesome pictures still. My question is - does anyone know if its possible to get the camera cleaned internally (someone would have to open it up and clean the dust from inside) and how much would it cost...
