Thanks from me (but not my gear budget, sigh...) for the answers RE: the level gauge.

And to all who are complaining about the lack of lenses, do check out the Sigma f2.8 E-Mount primes. They are inexpensive and stellar performers. The results I'm getting with the 30mm on an A6000 are incredible.

Anybody know if it will have a level display? That's the one thing I miss on my A6000 compared to my RX10...

This makes no sense at all IMHO. Two and a half minutes of recording for $50 to $75?

On article Light L16 packs 16 cameras into a single portable body (398 comments in total)

Yeah, this announcement is going to bring out a lot of flamers, no doubt. Here's how I see it:

The first generation of DSLR's and many to this day are simply film cameras with a sensor where the film plane used to be. The sensor is even defined by a size from film (either APS or 'full frame') and we still think of focal lengths in 35mm-E. Nothing wrong with that, but far from 'clean sheet' thinking.

Mirrorless cameras went more in the direction of design for digital, but have all too often looked to film cameras (specifically, rangefinders and compact SLR's) for style and feel.

This, on the other hand, is a truly new, digital design. Not the first - I'd give the GoPro credit for that - but one I welcome. Despite my deep aversion to being an early adopter, I'm damn tempted to go for this one.

All interesting stuff. But until Sigma improves their processing software or Adobe supports the dp's in Camera Raw, I'm not going to meme the jump. Pity. I've seen some great stuff from Sigma sensors.

I cut my teeth back in the day with a 135mm Vivitar on various Minolta bodies. Did lots of portraits and concert work. Anybody who says that this focal length (equivalent) is not very useful.... Well, they should try it first.
