I currently have a Fuji X-E2 and an NEX-F3 and for birding (casual stuff only) and kids, I find the NEX to be much more proficient. Don't laugh, birds and kids are very similar subjects, they both move quickly and unpredictably! I like to take photos of birds in flight and like to shoot with multi-area focus and continuous autofocus, and the F3 does surprisingly well. In all categories that matter (autofocus speed, shutter lag, and most importantly the ability to focus on a small object in...

I've NEX-F3, is Alpha 5000 a good upgrade? My main problem with F3 is slow SD card record times. Does A5K use UHS-I? How fast can it write to the card? I also want more megapixels and a smaller camera. ANd I hate F3's menu system. Does a5k has the A7/a6k menu system? Is it true that a5000 has a smaller APS-C sensor than F3? 1.55x crop instead of 1.5x? My F3 has 900k pixel screen resolution whereas the a5k has 400k pixels... would this be a problem? I don't consider A6k an upgrade to f3...

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,...

Hi, I am new to the site, I am trying to get into more photography.  I have a Sony NEX f3 camera.  So what kind of mic do you guys recommend for this type. What do you think of the vectra mic? plus limited funds so a low price mic.

Hello I am seeking some guidance on what should I do to get a proper shot with my Nex-F3 and kit lens (18-55). I am still in the learning stages (Aperture mode) and I took this macro shot. I think I like what I took, however, why is my image so large? This is a crop (image 1) from the original image (image 2). I have seen many macro shots on this website where the original image is not this big (in terms of capturing the side scenery). Is it because I don't have the right lens or is it that I...

OK, I am limited to a budget of $400.00 to pickup a new camera. I am a beginner and this camera will be my first dslr. I want to use this camera for general purpose photography (family, vacations, some video, etc.) I can get the nex-f3 for $350.00 with two lenses (18-55 mm and 55-200 mm). The rebel comes with two lenses (18-55 and 75-300) with a price of $400.00. Which is a better all around camera? Thanks

I will be in Africa for three months and I hope to take a couple of safaris while I'm there. I have a Sony NEX-F3 with a 18-55mm lens. I was looking into a 75-300mm lens however I will need a LA-EA2 lens adapter and I've read that slows down the auto-focus. Should I consider the 55-210mm, will that be enough? Any suggestions?  Thank you for your interest...and advice.

I'm something of a hobbyist shooter, currently own a Nikon J1 and Sony NEX-F3, I've also used DSLRs (most recently the Nikon D5100).  I've developed a gallery of photos over the years, and currently have 2 PBase galleries. I like them in terms of how they work (ability to customize the look of each page, "nested" subgalleries, can upload multiple JPEGs at once as a .zip file), but I am wondering if I should also be hosting photos elsewhere if I'm seeking more "visibility" as it were, as they...

I have an NEX-F3 with just two lenses, the 18-55 mm kit lens and a Sony 50mm F1.8. The kit lens is O.K., but I'm interested in replacing it with something a little faster. I'm leaning towards a Sigma 30mm F2.8, but I was wondering if there's a zoom lens out there with a focal length around 24 to 40mm worth looking at. I like the idea of having a bit of room to play with in that range. Any ideas? Thanks

I recently lost my NEX F3 when my bike's pannier bag fell off my my bike's rack. The NEX had my Sigma 30mm Lens on it at the time, so that was lost as well; I still have the 18-55mm kit lens. I notice that newer NEX models have a different kit lens. If I buy a body-only NEX (probably NEX 3 or 5), will my old kit lens be compatible?
