  • The A9 body is what the A7 always should have been, more controls, bigger battery. The A7 evolved out of the NEX which probably explains why they valued size over usability.

    The A7 series one...

  • it would be a good choice at $50 on ebay.

  • Nylon has replaced leather for many applications and I think here as well, While it may not smell or feel as nice nylon works better for this application, stronger, more durable, etc. and cheaper.

  • 4/3 was born when DLSR's had 6M APS-C sensors and the pixel wars had not started and at a time when sensors were more costly and difficult to make. 4/3 was perhaps a reasonable size to squeeze 5-6M...

  • Time to market and having a competitive offering is a make or break. The 24-500 was designed to out reach the Panasonic FZ1000 however once Sony released their 600mm RX10 that market position was...

  • I still have my A2 tucked way, after having sold my A1 . In some respects it was a very sophisticated camera looking externally like the 7 series. with a 8 M sensor and high resolution EVF. The...

  • We this is one useless idea. I am not sure why anyone would want to pay $400 for a housing to take bad pictures underwater. Might just buy an underwater point a shoot good to 50 feet and save $150....

  • While I have several pieces of software that can recreate film looks I have not used them. All films had some shortfalls that I created their looks but recreating that look in fau-digital does not...

  • Commented on article Google Pixel XL camera review

    I am confused, I was labouring under the assumption that all smart phones had microscopic sensors. This article reference a 1/2.3 sensor (6.17 x 4.55 mm) making it the same size as a point and...

  • what would have been more useful would be a 100mm lens with the same mag. ratio. longer macro lens have a flatter field and a larger subject to camera distance allowing for such niceties like...

  • The point here is that auto-focus lens are also manual focus. It would be smarter for lens manufacturers to design autofocus lens with well designed manual focus function and have the best of both...

  • While picking up a $100 used MF Russian lens is interesting as a cheap and cheerful toy. The idea of modern and expensive manual focus lenses is just dumb. Regardless if it is an $800 Tokina or a...

  • Replied in Nikon 24-500
    Maybe the its market release will be just after the next generation of Sony RX and Panasonic FZ models. Of course in might not be all Nikon's fault what with the earthquakes in Japan Sony might ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon 24-500
    This camera was announced in February and has yet to make a commercial appearance. I am guessing it will never show-up have been upstaged by the Sony  RX10 III.
  • What is old become new, there is a fascination with manual focus lenses and manually focusing a 10mm F5.6 lens might be a snap. manually focusing a 50mm F0.95 with an electronic viewfinder might be...

  • Well in my case I am happy with temporary storage on memory cards after acquiring more SD cards during sales than I could possibly ever fill. I eventually do just a single step of coping to my home...

  • I See three camera would work but a serious solution,
  • In the days when flash was insanely expensive and 512M was a big flash card I would copy from flash cards to a laptop or an external drive, erase the flash cards to reuse them the next day.

    Now...

  • I would have thought Sony better at action shots as it uses some software magic to handle movement from image to image. If you take multiple single images to merge does not people movements in the ...
  • somehow we have gotten the cart in front of the horse. Remember the film world shooting Kodachrome ASA 25 or maybe ASA 64, or you could go out on a limb and shoot Ektachrome 400 with a less than...
