Hello Everyone, A month a go i bought a used Nikon D60 on the cheap, and i loved using the camera on A/S/M modes, really enjoyed having quick access to manual controls. Now i am looking for a better performing camera to take with me in a trip through europe and i came up with two alternatives, a Rebel T3 or a NEX-C3, and i got a few questions about the C3: How does this camera handles shooting on manual mode? Is it confortable for people with big hands? Can i use it to learn photography or...

Hi, I'm looking at buying an SEL18200 to go onto an older NEX-C3. I find myself often having to switch out lenses between the kit 18/55 and the Ultra Wide combination of the SEL16F28 + VCL-ECU1 Ultra Wide Converter. I really enjoy using the wide angle for a large array of shots, it just captures so much which I really enjoy. On the other hand when I want to get some detail and capture a framed moment I need something with zoom and without the distortion of a wide angle, so I just end up...
I found this thread in the cybershot forum and found it interesting. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3756456 Basically the conclusion was that the rx10 is better. But the test was conducted on a nexc3. Does anyone have an insight on if the newer a6000 series cameras would make any difference? thanks

TL;DR : If I want to do some distance shooting (air planes approaching at airport, a full moon, etc) will I ultimately be better off (in regard to final Image Quality) with a small sensor super zoom more capable of reaching these objects (50x, 1200mm equiv), or an APS-C mirrorless with the longest reaching lens being 55-210mm, and having to rely on things like Sony's "clear image 2x zoom" to at least bring me up to 630mm equivalent, or hope that a 100% crop of a much smaller subject from the...
The auto focus on my failthful NEX-C3 stopped working today in all modes except 'Intelligent Auto'. The small green light at the bottom right of the sceen has curved lines around it as it tries to focus but keeps flashing and no focus confirmation double beep, the picture on the rear screen keeps hunting with the shutter half pressed. The auto focus works when set to DMF. I still have V.01 firmware, do you think an update might help?
Hi, I own old Sony NEX-C3. Short time used kit pancake Sony E 16/2.8. I was not satisfied, compared to legacy MF lenses, so I sell it. Now I'm stacked with Minolta Rokkor MF lenses (135mm/3.5, 50mm/1.4, 50mm/1.7, 30-70mm/3.5, 30-70mm/3.5 macro, 28mm/2.8) and one Industar 28/2.8 pancake. The problem is, my wife is not able hold focus on MF lenses, so pictures always bluried. Yesterday I take C3 to Sony Centrum and take a few pictures with Sony E 16-50mm F/3.5-5.6 OSS PZ (SEL-1650). Pros: +...

I have a nexc3 with the kit lens and the sel5018 and was looking forward to the a6000 for its fast focus speed. But some of the things people are talking about here have me unsure. But I don't even understand the points people are making: Some people are saying that the lenses for nex cameras will not be able to resolve the amount of detail due to the megapixels in the a6000. And I think if I understand correctly the NEX-7 also had this problem? I don't even understand what this means and how...

Hey guys, Looking for your recommendations for an upgrade to an entry- or mid-level dSLR / mirrorless that I'll mostly be using for the following: Shooting pictures of the family (I have young, but growing kids, so I'd have the camera at family dinners/reunions, sports events and musical performances) Motorcycling trips. I've been known to go out in groups, ride ahead of the group a few minutes, and take shots of them as they come by me on the road. I use a GoPro (Hero 3 Black) to capture...
