  • Replied in New J5
    Good start. Let us now how it goes with no EVF!
  • I think it's another example of an "intercultural" phenomenon (no pun intended). People here are now celebrating Haloween, which was something completely unknown when I was young. It doesn't bother ...
  • I agree with Bob. The second one is superb. I really love it. Thank you!
  • Ah ah! It doesn't bother me too much; Except when some consider that these lights are not enough: they put music too (well, if we can call that "music")...
  • If you don't have or use the EVF with the V3, I think the answer is yes.
  • Yes. Sold mine. IMO, all things considered, it doesn't make much sense to attach a DX or FX lens to the CX mount. Results are so so (depends on the lens) And you loose the benefit of small size Whe ...
  • Created discussion thread P7800 Christmas lights
    I went for a walk in my neighbourhood, with my P7800, and came accross these Christmas lights. In that street, almost all houses are decorated like this. Some with very few lights, others with plenty.
  • Thank you Seedeich. Very nice pictures, as usual. The 2nd one is my favourite, composition wise. It looks like your imagination for composing pictures is endless. I'm jalous! :-x :-):-)
  • I have it on my D7200. It's a very useful range. It is sharper than the Sigma 17-70 C I had before. Very sharp. No problems. The only minor flaw is that AF is not as fast as my AFP 70-300 VR (wich ...
  • Very useful. Thanks Steve
  • Yes. You're right... I have an automatic lens cap on my P7800, but it is fixed to the camera, not to the lens. Extremely handy. ...
  • Created question thread RX 100 lens cap
    Hello, Still undecided about the RX 100 (m4). It is pocketable, but I don't trust the built in automatic lens protection. I'm wondering if there is some removable lens cap that you can use, so that ...
  • Very nice. I particularly like the 2nd one and the last one. Would be interesting to see the "steady" version, and the "hallucinatory" one. Thanks for bringing us some fun!
  • Replied in RX-100 m4/5
    OK. So it's up to you to decide. Nice. OK. Makes sense, since raising the EVF normally means you're ready to take a picture. OK. Yes. I have this feature on my P7800 (but not on my V1...). Thank ...
  • Created question thread RX-100 m4/5
    Hello Sony users; Nikon 1 user here, tempted by a RX100. Just a couple of questions about the RX100 m4 or m5 EVF. 1/ when you release the EVF, does it switches the camera on automatically (or is it ...
  • Very nice work! Congrats. My favourite is #2, but all are very nice. Thanks for sharing.
  • First, because I need glasses to see what's going on on the LCD, while I don't need them when I use the VF. Given I need glasses only to see from close, using a LCD means wear the glasses to ...
  • Jakes, that's what I'm torn between: Since I use my "compact" system only for travel, and since I almost never use long focal lenses when I'm travelling, I could sell all my N1 stuff, and buy a RX ...
  • Argh...Jakes! I just had decided to give up, and to look elsewhere, and now, you're telling me the J5 is fun. Fun, yes, I suppose it is, but...I want more than that! :-) I want to be comfortable ...
  • Thank you Hans Georg. I'm not a long FL user. I use my compact camera for travel. That's why size and weight are very important. My V1+6.7-13 does a fairly  good job, but I'm starting to find that ...
