Hi, I'm currently have two Sony APS-C  cameras A500 (OVF) and A6000, after been using the A6000 nearly two years now I'm starting to finally appreciate the EVF, but still want to have an OVF camera with bigger body for outdoor and action usage, due to OVF and easier handling of controls. So I'm not going to switch to a one body setup. I however are starting to feel that the huge difference in IQ and AF between my two bodies are to big, so I'm looking for and upgrade for my A500. Unfortunately...

I recently purchased a A330 body.  I really wanted a vertical battery grip for it.  But it seems even though Ownuser made one, they are just not available!  So the question is, and doing this on a budget (body under $250), which second body would be a good choice/matchup to get that would have a vertical battery grip for it? A200? A500?  Thanks for any input!-------------------------------Sony E SeriesA330 - 35-105 and 18-55Nex-318-55, 20mm, 60mm Sigma

I have a bit of a tricky system I am trying to get to work and I am looking for help. I have an A500 that I use as a primary. Even though dated (cameras are dated after 2 years any more), I still love the camera and plan to use it for a few more years. I have a couple mobile studio lighting systems that I like to travel with, but a new venue has prompted me to try something else. Instead of using a photocell slave system on the flashes, I decided to go with a multichannel RF system so that...

I have been itching for a new camera for a while.  I just bought the a77, I know its successor is coming out soon, but for 1,098 I got the a77 with the 18-135 and a vertical grip.  That's the going price now.  I just hope I won't regret getting the "old" technology.  I am moving up from an a500.

I enjoy macro photography immensely and used a Sigma 105 macro (not the current version) with my Sony A500.  I traded the lens, camera and other items and made the investment in the a99 and Zeiss 24-70 and 135 lens. Both are spectacular lenses. While it's not a macro lens, the Zeiss 135 is incredible.  I've been getting extremely sharp photos with the 135 in macro situations. I just crop the photo as needed.  I mainly shoot flowers.  This isn't ideal but it's working for the time being.  For...

Hello, I'm a student majoring in film making and documentary. I want to buy a camera for video purpose, and I can spend money about $1,000 ~ $1,500 for it. I've researched so many articles and reviews about the cameras. And I heard Panasonic gh3 is fairly good to use for videographers. I like the sharpness of gh3 and the dynamic range, and the advantage that I can use old legacy canon FD lenses. But also I saw t4i is the good one for video, too. or 60D.... there are too many cameras to...
