Seeing that the topic is beginners or casual hobbies I think the article could of asked why Sony didn’t add heif images as an output option. Also I didn’t believe the 6000 could be charged via a usb power bank?

Rob890: for what you're getting base wise that seems a bit expensive especially if they're touting it as some sort of module thingamajig.

The camera is going to be the buyer’s second if not third body and a whole new lens system. Asking a premium price for a system that’s not already in the camera bag - yeah that’s a bit much especially when you factor buying into another limited lens system.

On article Sony E 16-55mm F2.8 G sample gallery (85 comments in total)

None of these examples needed the speed of 2.8 however from years of experience wide angle lenses such as this do at times Need a polarizer and the examples avoided showing interiors or city scenes that would of greatly been improved (saved) by the ability to place a polarizer on the lens.

Point is, the examples kind of show some general safe scenes but don’t push the lens to see where it’s going to fail for the buyer/user. I think it’s a disservice not to show a product’s shortcomings when promoting it in a form of review.

sknai16: Sony E owners are getting a really well stocked inventory of possible lenses. Good for Sony and where are Canikon?

the point was that having redundant fast 35mm lenses does not give e-mount users a huge diversity.

Maybe a stock of redundancy, but Canon and Nikon still easily have a well diverse selection. Seriously how many 35mm lenses does an e-mount user need. At least make one of them a tse

j3ffw: Why couldn’t they design it for a front filter!?! Oh well I’m sure the event photogs are happy

Sure does seem like new lenses are only being designed for two specific groups wildlife or weddings. Sometimes I wonder if lenses are designed with the larger aperture just to bump the price seems like this lens at f4 would of been more versatile

A link to an e-mount 12-24/f5.6 that has threads for a front filter??

I had the sigma 12-24 eos mount swapping lenses with and without an adapter is a pain when the camera is mounted within a variety of other elements

What’s unrealistic is everyone on their keyboards always claiming they need supper fast lenses it wasn’t too long ago 1600 iso was stretching useable quality

Well without a front filter I don’t see any use for it as being a landscape lens, a walk-around lens or even a lens for interiors so then either there are a lot of Astro shooters who don’t already have a fixed lens or people who buy gear and don’t use the equipment. But my thoughts stand lenses lately seem to be over saturating the wedding /event photographer’s bag

all I do is curse at my Apple devices anymore, but if this means they are going to come out with a truly waterproof iPhone - that would be awesome!

add the ability to have a hot shoe holding accessory off to the side, then it would be versatile

If they could sneak in their old focus stacking app or a bracket sequence that shifted the focal point along either the x or y axis that would be very welcome.

Marty4650: If you ever get to NYC, then the B&H store is a must see destination.

B&H got where they are by offering huge selection, fair pricing, and a high level of professional service. This was in stark contrast to some camera shops in the area.

It is like a Disneyland for photographers and enthusiasts. You will get to actually handle hundreds of bags, tripods, and every camera and lens imaginable. Their salespeople are really helpful and knowledgeable, and their used selection is awesome.

Be forewarned that parking nearby is impossible, unless you pay around $40 an hour at a parking garage, or spend something like $200 to get free parking. So public transportation is best if you are just browsing.

If you get the chance, you should visit the store. Adorama is also pretty great too, but on a smaller scale. Both stores offer the same kind of service and pricing, but B&H is better for finding hard to get things.

New Yorkers are pretty pretty fortunate to have these stores.

"B&H store is a must see destination."
No it's not! it's a store the museums are a must see, the view from the Empire State Building is a must see, Central Park in snow is a must see. Geez our values seem to be slipping

My first order from them was in the mid 80s. I have signed up two government agencies to purchase equipment through them plus one private corporation. They completely screwed me on an order at the end of last week - spent a morning chatting with their rude customer service rep (every reply required five minutes of wait time) out right asked question only to receive a wishy washy answer and then have them send me an email at the end of today canceling the order altogether.

Whatever history they have if this is their customer service I will happy go elsewhere

j3ffw: With all the different camera companies and yet we still don't have a true advanced waterproof camera with a large sensor, manual, & Raw. I don't care about some marketing cutline that "claims" it can be splashed or dropped in the mud. I want a truly "Waterproof" advanced camera.

And no I don't want some bloated housing that one needs to be extra careful about seals. If that's the only option then I'm staying full frame.

I think you are a Russian robot defending a corporation. You keep claiming I don't know... when it is you who can not read and comprehend english.

My watch is waterproof it can go in an out of a swimming pool all summer long. You are the only one who keeps claiming waterproof needs to be dive capable. It sounds more like you are making excuses for your company why they can not put out a waterproof camera that outputs a Raw file by adding this weird scuba diving dimension to your argument.

Who said 30m? And why is a waterproof advance large sensor camera with Raw such a strange demand? Instead of trying to insult me why don't you explain how nobody wants to take pictures around (or in) a swimming pool, beach or lake.

Many years I worked with a Nikonos, that not only had interchangeable lenses but I also had to open the back to put film in every 36 frames!!! So no I don't see why it's so hard to produce an all in one digital camera that can handle the 'extreme' pressures of a swimming pool. Waterproof does not need to imply dive certified if that were the case I would never of owned a watch.

On article Sony a7R III UHD 4K sample video clips (106 comments in total)

Not a negative comment on the camera, just a question.

With everyone talking, Apple, HP, etc.. about the jump to h265 and the benefit of it's compression why doesn't this updated camera utilize h265?

Again a question wondering why h265 isn't seen in this update?

for $300!? maybe if it could record to a micro sd card at a better bit depth and for the off chance you want to hide it in a scene at times. For the $$$ I would rather get another xlr mic - just never thought much of on-camera audio. It's like photographing wildlife with a wide angle lens

p.s. I do like Rode's mics at least connected to an xlr cable not dissing the company
