Hi Forum Members, Haven't Been Here for Awhile... Need some Insight

Due to financial meltdown, continuing health issues, and extremely bad winter haven't been frequenting the forum, and I missed that.

Still have A100,2-A700's,A900,R1,Nex 5 and HandyCam Sr12(10 meg. still and 120GB hard drive HiDef)

My wife and I are still track photographer for Lebanon Valley Dragway and I am acting webmaster.... We added video to our repertoire. The Nex 5 performed flawlessly w/18-55 lens, and the Handycam as well for videos.The Nex 5 is used most of the time for our winner circle photos many taken at dark w/only stadium lights 50/75yrds away. The A900 and A700's took more than 25,000 photos at the track not to include, family, new grand daughter, and our 3 yr old grandson.

Fyi, settled on Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere for video software, and upgraded to CS5 and Lightroom 3+.

Need some insight and information to bring me up to date if forum members wouldn't mind. Anything happening on A900 or A700 replacements? And the Nex 7?

I can only offer some videos and insights learned w/Nex 5 and HandyCam. And software insights as payment...

Comments and Criticisms Welcome...

Not to bore members but my health issues last falll and winter had to do with uncontrolable diabetes, that thx to my doc. fought w/insurance company and now is under control. Still have issues w/carpal tunnel, arthritis and also new diagnosis for degenerative disc disease. And on top of that on June 23, 2011 I will be 60 yrs old, bummer....

BTW ended up purchashing a 4X4 Side By Side because of my lack of mobility. Here is a link to my purchase and info. about it... I am completely satisfied w/my purchase... and offer my endorsement of that product sales and service...And was a godsend for plowing snow. Btw we had to 24" plus snow storm and countless other 6-12 storms. Aprox. 2 feet of snow still on the ground...Sample the bigger snow storms

Sorry but I would be remiss in not showing of my premie grand daughter who blessed us w/her presence 7 wks early of the due date.

Photo taken w/Nex5

For indoors we almost exclusively use the Nex 5, normal to low light capabillities are great, and even the crappy little flash works great..
