Re: Welcome to Emylia Marie Nadeau

Beautiful! I know any new arrival is wonderful, but I appreciate them being born at this time of year, as I have a son and a grandson who graced us with their presence around Christmas!

Re: Sony planning first "non-Bayer" Sensor

I have a suggestion for Sony: Instead of working on esoteric stuff, make good cameras that work, that people want, at sensible prices.

Re: The future Alpha 99

Producing a product that is "Apple-esque" isn't necessarily a good thing.

Apple are mostly hype, and over-rated. You just have to look at the sheep at their product launches & releases.

Re: The future Alpha 99

I could never get my head round why Sony brought out two identical cameras, one with no AA filter and one with. On the test pics, there was some obvious moire from the 7r, but I could not see a dramatic improvement in IQ. If they had made one body with a switchable filter, then they wouldn't have b...

Re: A580 diff exposure settings between ovf and liveview

There should be no difference between rear screen and rear screen + eye piece cover, as the viewfinder has an eyepiece blind. The difference must be down to the metering source.

I don't know Balmedie, but the beach between Burghead and Kinloss could pass for that too, even with the old pillboxes!
