Re: 20 MP Cell Phones by 2012 = 40 MP APS-C and 60 MP FF?

Thanks for the information A1000. Problem is that the only piece of information relevant to Sony DSLR owners/users was at the bottom as: Sony is close on its target of achieving 20% market share: http://www.smarthouse.com.au/Digital_Ph" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... s/F5R5K4S2 On...

Re: That Cheap Ebay NP-FM500H battery

Just received my SIDO battery and having charged it I immediately put it into may A350. It immediately registered 100% charge in the rear screen. So far so good. This is only my second spare, but it looks as good and solid as the Sony original.

Re: Civility

I actually went to this forum because David Kilpatrick was first excluded from DPReview and then decided not to re-appear when permitted to do so. I have found that it is much easier to acquire useful information here about how to use my Sony DSLR equipment. Most of what is posted on DPReview is the...

Re: Civility

I have appealed before for some reduction in the intensity of certain contributions. The problem is that Sonolta comes away with a lot of good pieces of information. All in life is a balance. Do we want Sonolta the way he is and the valuable information he provides or are we put off by his style? I ...

Re: Definitive A900/D3X noise/ISO samples

Here is an interesting contribution from bob2 on the Canon 1D/5D thread http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1032&message=30449425 The concluding part concerning mostly a comparison of the A900 with D3X sensor (and other common Sony sensors) performance is quite interesting and perha...

Re: What would be the next logical innovation for Sony DSLRs?

I am coming back to my contributions above (earlier today) to re-state my case for an updated A700. This is the oldest DSLR in Sony's current line-up and surely due for an upgrade in 2009. A1000 wrote above Back iluminated sensors will come first with smaller sensor sizes. Maybe that will start in t...

Re: Definitive A900/D3X noise/ISO samples

Some divided opinions about the Sony DSC-R1 above. I used one for a couple of years before the A700 came out. My son is using it now to photograph ships. He shoots Jpegs and they are all very sharp and with good tonal range. I bought it in 2005 (I think) on the basis that it produced as good as or b...

Re: What would be the next logical innovation for Sony DSLRs?

Interesting points being made above. I am just a retired shooter submitting mostly landscape, cityscape and architectural images of wherever I go to Alamy. I now use my A700 and A350 depending on the need for speed or LV usage. My dream camera remains the same, namely an upgraded A700 with an APS-C ...

Re: That Cheap Ebay NP-FM500H battery

Just bought one of these SIDO batteries from HK for £10.00 delivered so I would encourage BFitzgerald to provide a user update in the not too distant future, if he would kindly oblige. This will be my second spare so it really has been purchased as a fall-back during heavy shooting.

Re: IQ: Canon 5D Mk2 vs. P&S vs. A200, Sony market share at 20%

Interesting lead on possible future developments in the DSLR/SLR camera segment. I think there is no doubt that the future partly belongs to the electronics giants such as Sony, Panasonic and Samsung if they still see this sector as potentially profitable and decide to continue investments.

A1000

I think you gave us most of this information (above) in the thread entitled A900 vs. DX3, Canon FF, Red, Panasonic, etc., which you originated and it was viewed by over 400 members.

Re: IQ: Canon 5D Mk2 vs. P&S vs. A200, Sony market share at 20%

I think that A1000 is a bit rough around the edges and is a bit "sharper" in his comments that at least I am used to in this Forum. He is also more a Sony than a K-M/Alpha fan boy. His picture has been doctored. Maybe he will reveal if it is to annoy or frighten us or he has some other pur...
