Re: SR4 RX100MK3 with pop up wiewfinder & fast lens

I'd wait until you see the price. I was thinking of purchasing the A6000 body only and selling my NEX-6N before the rumour about RX100MKII. Park Cameras has it at £549 body only and £649 with the 16-50 zoom. I won't pay more than £649 for the RX100III. Park currently has the RX100II at £569. I may ...

Re: SLT technology now

B Fitzgerald You can suggest SLT has sold better, but I'm not sure I believe it. I wonder who suggested that? Not me. I referred to SLT & mirroless versus staying with DSLR only. I think I am right but cannot be proved as the "staying with DSLR" scenario was not played out. Perhaps it ...

Re: SLT technology now

I would dare to suggest (no figures) that Sony are selling more cameras now with their venturing into SLT and mirrorless than if they had simply continued to develop A700/350/580/900 type cameras to compete with Canikon head on. They would simply not have been able to break that duopoly. I would als...

Re: SLT technology now

Mark K statement Four years ago, when I got my first SLT camera A77, I strongly believed it will be the future. It did not take long before I started to understand the price we paid for SLT....image quality. Can't comment on the validity of this statement, and in fact I was against SLT based on othe...

Re: Don't Worry ? Be Happy ?

Another reason why I don't worry about Sony and actually is quite happy is that with my RX100 and NEX-6 in particular I have not had to use RAW images for quite a while and to same HDD space I only use Jpeg Fine now. No need for PS Lightroom now. Rarely have to even look at CA as in camera removal. ...

Re: Don't Worry ? Be Happy ?

Don't know much about camera/lens technicalities so I just look at what I bring home at 100% to see if Alamy will pass the images. So I was out on Saturday and had to use my NEX-6 with the 55-210 E Zoom to photograph what I could see of the new Queensferry Crossing. The images at 100% looks like nor...

Re: Will you buy an A7s at 2500 UKP?

Someone in South Korea might. SAR has just posted system camera sales in S. Korea and it would appear that Sony have managed to beat Canon on account of the mirrorless market having reached 58% against DSLR 42%. http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/korea-sony-sells-more-system-cameras-than-canon/ Sony’s d...

Re: SAR SR5 Rumour about Sony A7s with 4K on Sunday in Las V

Sony have now released 3 E mount FF bodies, and done next to nothing for A Mount for over a year (the A58 has been out over 12 months) Barry Fitzgerald is correct because this statement is factual. His predictions about Sony's camera future are probable, but not factual. He does not know how their ...

Re: SAR SR5 Rumour about Sony A7s with 4K on Sunday in Las V

In my humble opinion, generalities are totally out of place here. We are putting views forward on a dedicated niche product. The World is heading towards 7 billion and Sony (I would think) have eyed a niche within that which will purchase this A7s to make it worth while for them. There is no real co...

Re: SAR SR5 Rumour about Sony A7s with 4K on Sunday in Las V

An opinion from Barry Fitzgerald I couldn't help but laugh when they said "you'll make a lot of money by being able to shoot video and pull stills from that later" Considering how over-saturated the stills and video market is, that's a pretty silly statement to make. Now I'm sure some shoo...
