My first (and best) experience with mirrorless DSLR was two early Sony models, the NEX-3 and the NEX-5. Both were rather small, but my favorite part of the design of the NEX-3 was its very thin design: only 1.5 inch thick (without lens), weighing 370g without a lens. This made it easy for me to pocket it when using pancake lenses or pinhole lenses, as it eventually took as little space as a non-removable lens camera such as the Panasonic DMC-LX7 for example, while providing the option to...

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site. I have been using a Sony Nex3 camera, but have really outgrown it. I really want to step up my photography game, and after MUCH research have decided on the Nikon d750 with the Sigma art 24-105 lens. I currently do portraits of my kids, travel, and general photography, but want to get into landscape and more artistic photography. I have been saving up, and will get the camera and lens for Christmas. My question is when should I buy it? There is a great deal...
Broke out my Nex3 recently and decided to shoot in B&W. It appears that in Monochrome mode there is no option for manual control of shutter speed or aperture. I can, however, adjust Exposure Comp. Can anyone please clarify if this is correct, or am I missing something? Thank you.
I may be missing something here but I need to know. After upgrading from a NEX-3 to a NEX-7, I'm currently wading through all the settings, attempting to get to grips with things. My question is with regard to the focus points. On both cameras there are 25. I may sound like a complete newbie (which I am actually), but can I view all these points on screen simultaneously? At the moment (and on the NEX-3 also), there are 9, grouped in the centre of the screen. Am I completely misunderstanding...
I just got into photography and I have a good feeling that I'll be here for a while, so I know it's way to early to get a new camera since I already have a Nex-3. But I need something to save up for since I'm not really the wealthiest person on earth. I have some options down here, if you want to look over them and tell me your thoughts or you can put your own camera you think is good. P.S I love doing nature scenes as well as low light pictures.

Greetings Fellow Photographers, I'm been addicted to a drug recently, and if you haven't guessed....the drug is PHOTOGRAPHY! I love photography so much, the thrill of getting the greatest breath taking pictures is what I craze for. Besides the point, my first camera is a Sony Nex-3, I had it for a few weeks and I got used to it........a bit. I have a few questions that I'll hope will be answered by you lovely photographers. Any good resources to learn from about taking pictures...
Hey everyone so I just noticed my Sony NEX-5T has a focusing noise issue (its noticable when its pretty quiet) when autofocusing it's more present with a high shutter speed or focus close on things on my kit lenses but on my SEL50F18 it's constant in video & before I take a photo with it. If any of you have a NEX 5R/5T please test it out! If mine is defective I will take it back for repair it's very annoying Thank you so much! (: It sounds like this I found a video on Youtube I wonder if it's...
