rt22306: I will miss the former Penn Camera/Calumet Photo store in Wash. DC on E Street. Used them for all my black and white film work. Service was good in the old Penn Camera days, and was pretty decent the last several times I had gone there. Time to start searching for another lab locally.

Don't know about lab capability, but for DC metro Calumet customers, Photocraft in Burke VA/Embassy Camera in DC are GREAT to work with and will occasionally deal on prices. I started buying from Photocraft when Penn went under and have never looked back, except for lens rentals. I hope someone takes up that business.

Fotomaker01: Given the price of this camera (and its optional electronic viewfinder) it is a crime that Sony doesn't provide a printed real (vs. Quick Start) manual for the camera. There is also no CD with the manual or other software disc included with the camera. And, the Web-based version of the manual is a pain to read - it's all topline topics only and requires clicking to expand any given topic. There is just no facility for the speed and ease of flipping back and forth b/wn manual pages that there would be with a printed, with decent sized font (geared to the eyesight of middle-aged people who can afford the blankety blank camera) manual. For such a complex camera that is so feature rich, a printed manual is a must!

I agree and found this ebook to be a great manual. I have it on my iPad and iPhone, so it's available when I'm in the field.

He has one for the Mk2, too.
