Re: Video with a55.

Overall nice, could suggest to pay attention to white balance, it changes during video.

Re: A77, am I the first to notice?

Body sealing is really good thing, however in real life there is no one sealed Sony lens. Even more, most of them extending during zooming and it increases possibility of water entrance into lens. Any way knobs instead of sliding switches is bad news, because switch also indicate in which (on/of or ...

Re: Swedish FOTO finds A580 faster than Pentax K5

In PopPhoto AF speed tests A55 is for 25-30% faster than Nikon d7000.

Re: Sony looks to change the world of DSLRs - Masashi 'Tiger

The ultimate for me would be a shutterless camera, with the mechanical operation eliminated entirely allowing totally silent capture. The difference made at wedding ceremonies, quiet concerts, in meetings or during events filmed by TV or on movie sets would be groundbreaking. Such a camera would be...

Re: a580 beats a55, matches D7000 DXO reports

I'm confused about DxO scores. If they testing sensor (as they clamed), they should move mirror away and test only sensor. How the same sensor could get different score? How sensor could lose DR just with translucent mirror? It is corrupted by different processing? With A55 mirror in the way, sensor...

Re: Teleconverter - safe to use with Sony 500mm reflex lens?

Agree, with TC AF does not working and upscaling gives you the same result. In addition with upscaling you will keep AF. I would suggested to invest in 1.4x TC rather than in 2x TC. With 500mm neither of them will give some benefit, but with other lenses 1.4x is much more worthwhile.

Re: a850/900 firmware update release

As BF initially mentioned, camera is outdated when you need to update it. As A900 owner I will evaluate each new model from A900 specs point of view. What will be the reason to spent another 3000$ and what I will get for that money? LV and video would be nice (not need). But I could get them in A55 ...

Re: Sony conference

NEX-7 ???
Is it at least mentioned in Photokina?

SAR or "Crystal globe" incorrectly predicted: Nex7 would come out along with GH2. Now Pany did announcement of 1080/60p GH2, where is Sony prototype?

Re: Q&A with the SLT Development Team

I think lot of people have question: how to clean mirror?

"Buy a larger body" is stupid suggestion because Sony didn't offer larger body with 10fps, phase AF during video and stills. Also faster card for reasonable price isn't available.

Re: PMA News - worldwide demand delays A560 launch

I would agree that sometimes excess demand could slow down innovations, but it is problem for relatively small fabrics. Sony tend to be huge and new technology and camera development is independent part of Sony. According to several interviews with Sony leading management it is clear that new camera...

Re: 85/2.8 35/1.8 24/2 MTF curves on sony Japan

85mm bokeh on sample image as well as MTF resolution/contrast seems to be really amazing. Taking in to account small size and price it should be really excellent lens, unfortunately only for APS-C. Zeiss claims that they publishing truly measured MTF charts instead of other (Sigma etc) who giving us...

Re: Nex Cameras as reviewed by DPReview

I think the problem is that Sony never told a full story... It is obvious, people are crying for usual Sony screen in NEX camera. I'm also didn't understand why Sony couldn't implement it as well as QuickNavi interface as custom selectable possibility. They already have it and for manipulation with ...

Re: Nex Cameras as reviewed by DPReview

A900 just gives the impression to people that I'm a serious professional photographer (yes I am thankyou, but I don't want anyone to figure that out!!!) In general I agree with you and as I mentioned only some long lens helps to avoid attention of people. Therefore I'm also planing to by NEX with s...

Re: Nex Cameras as reviewed by DPReview

I agree, A900 (esp. with grip) sometimes is counted as pro camera and you have to use long lens to keep a distance. Fortunately landscapes don't care... and sometimes pro like camera helps to keep status. DPR has their own stile for tests as well as some personal preferences which some people counte...
