  • Considering that you got 13 years of use out of the A100, it doesn't sound like you are the kind of person who should worry about the A mount being discontinued. An A68 or 77ii should last you a ...
  • At the end of the day, those are two amazing cameras. Much better than the best film SLRs that were available to me when I started getting serious about photography.

  • Many years ago I semi-volunteered to take photos of a vice president of our company opening our newest facility. It was early days on the job for me and I thought it would make a nice first ...
  • You are describing my long time ago dream darkroom.
  • Your reply prompted me to look through my basement to find my original kit. Found it, but not much left. I sort of remember the kids using the various trays and beakers for different school ...
  • Somewhere in my basement I still have the original GAF home film processing kit that got me started on this fabulous photography journey. It came with miniature trays, a contact printer and a film ...
  • Those are not the most encouraging numbers for A mount, but I guess they are understandable considering the fact that Sony has done nothing to promote the A mount.  For some reason, I expected ...
  • The second photo reminds me of the time I bought my young niece a digital camera for Christmas. For the first few days, she and her sister would find great fun in spinning around and holding the ...
  • If only it were true. But if that were the case, I guess that the A77ii would be on sale now to clear out inventory - but no indication of any price drop. Somehow, I doubt if Sony will make any ...
  • Replied in And yet
    Where I live, Toronto, while traditional camera stores are disappearing, I can buy a DSLR at a variety of local stores, including Best Buy, Staples, Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, and even a store ...
  • So far, my Sony Alpha 500 and 550 along with my Nikon D90 all work fine. I actually posted a few photos a while back of an airshow that I took with the 550 and a vintage tank display that I took ...
  • In my case, I only use a card once and when it's full I file it away as the ultimate back-up. I have no particular brand loyalty, generally buying whatever is on sale but I do stick to reputable ...
  • Nice try. But the Leica camera with the outer red skin that looks like a ping pong paddle still takes the cake ( or maybe a camera that looks like a slice of cake will be the next thing - I want...

  • Sometimes I get the feeling that some posters on DPR have had their thoughts "focused" by a few beers before posting - especially when I read some of the posts bashing equipment or other posters.
  • Norton Security Deluxe for $19.99 on sale at Staples (actually got it on Boxing Day).
  • Thanks for posting. Great use of the earlier Alphas on your part. The Alpha 100 was my first DSLR. I ended up having a love/hate relationship with it.  I really liked the outdoor shots in lower ...
  • Just shows us how lucky we are. I got into photography in the film era, where IS0 800 was "up there" and barely useable. The reality is that all of the cameras in this article are simply amazing....

  • Replied in The "unknown"
    I hear you, and yet 3 out of the 5 numerically highest threads on the first page here deal with either Sony's or third parties commitment to A mount. Not sure if this represents a pretty powerful ...
  • Replied in And yet
    The three most active threads in this forum, over the last three weeks, in one fashion or another,  deal with either the death of the A mount or lack of third party support for the mount.  Kinda ...
  • Missed a photo of a large wolf in Northern Alberta because the sound of my camera bag being zipped open spooked him and he disappeared into the trees. Lesson learned is that camera bags have their ...
