    Help brainstorm about a new name for TalkNEX

    SonyCommunity.com or SonyCameraCommunity (SCC?)- if you are opening it up to other Sony Cameras SonyILC, EVILSony - just a play on anagrams for mirrorless Sony-E - maybe something short for sony emount systems E-Crowd, Nex society, Gen-Nex.......ok...too drunk..passing out now.

    While not actively participating in the discussion there, I do go there from time to time to read the discussions, and yes there are a lot of people there who are...well...let's just say that they are 'very opinionated', however the same can be said with other places like DPreview, some of the...

    Voigtlander Nokton 50mm 1.1

    Hi and welcome Thanks for the links, you've got some very nice shots. Yes I agree, it's a specialised lens, the focal length and the speed makes it an ideal lens for portraiture.

    Hello, beautiful!

    One of the best lens Minolta has ever produced, definitely one of the sharpest, I can only think of the 40mm f2 being sharper and losing a stop. Definitely cannot argue with the condition and price, Great find :thumbup:

    Help me spend some money :-)

    I'd go with the 1st one Poki suggests, alternatively, if you can hold on with the gift cards burning a hole on your wallet I'll probably add wait for a couple of months and you may see a new NEX body, Sony's has a short product cycle (about a year) NEX-3 2010, NEX-5 2010, NEX-C3 2011, NEX-5N...

    I don't mean to promote bad habits, please feel free to delete this post if necessary, but I find it easier to say sorry after buying something than asking permission :evilsmile: *Disclaimer: You must also be prepared to sleep on the couch for weeks, eat all the foods you hate for weeks, and...

    Diseases that plague photographers

    To be fair though photography is a hobby that closely parallels the love for gear, technology etc.. I guess it's fine as long as you don't go over board. IMHO, when you start liking the photos that you shoot you will find yourself getting less affected by the "plague". There was a time when I...

    New beginnings, from Nikon to NEX. Maybe!!!

    Hi and welcome Nowadays mirrorless are providing high quality photos without the added bulk. I'm sure one of the guys will be able to help you decide.

    Intellectual property

    I'll add my 2 cents based on something that happened to me recently. I'm just an amateur photographer and I don't take photos for a living, now and then people commission me to take photos for them and I am given a small fee but I still consider myself just a hobbyist who's hobby now and then...

    Tri-X film OMG!!

    You can almost get the same effect on Fujifilm's Velvia, but yeah I'd still prefer the Kodachrome myself if it was still available.

    Best low light lens?

    This is just IMHO As far as lenses go the general rule of thumb is the faster it goes the better it performs in low light e.g. f2, f1.9 – f1.1, and the hyperfocal lenses which go sub f1.0. however some concessions also has to be made regarding other factors that can make you shoot effectively...

    Focus peaking challenge

    If you shoot RAW or RAW + Jpg, one way I used to shoot using legacy glass was exactly what Freddytto suggested. Set the camera to shoot B+W, and the peaking color high and red. Everything in your screen will be B+W (which shouldn't matter since you are shooting RAW anyways) and the red peaking...

    Amin - Just a thought

    I thought Serious Compacts was the centralised hub for all of the forums, it has sub-sections for MU-43, Sony NEX, Fuji, Leica, Pentax, Samsung, etc.. The original initiating members were also the same initiating members for MU-43, TalkNex, FujiXspot and LeicaPlace and have made these places the...

    Has this happened to you?

    I concur with Markus, have a play around the 5R and see if it's for you. I'll probably add that you also need to look at what you plan to shoot and how you shoot. Is size a big factor for you? You mentioned that you found the A65 big though you like the image quality, you can have a look...

    Fujifilm X100s First Thoughts

    I agree with Ray, I also believe that it is why most reviewers advise to have a good play with X cameras before going ahead in purchasing one as there is a steep learning curve involved if one is used to using point and shoots and DSLR cameras, for these cameras operate on a WYSIWYG system and...

    Fujifilm X100s First Thoughts

    That's pretty much the same with all cameras that doesn't focus ttl, e.g. Leica rangefinders, Epson RD-1, Contax G2, Fuji X, etc.. because the OVF is only used for framing the shot while focusing is done separately through the lens. You will find that this will not occur if you shoot the...

    That's when the OVF compensates with the lens parallax error.

    Likewise, funnily enough as I usually prefer B+W.

    Full Frame NEX going to be freakin' expensive!!

    That actually makes a lot of sense, although using a longer registration distance while alleviating issues with UWA lenses will increase camera size, the RX1 has a small compact body due to the lens being fixed and Sony doesn't have to worry about UWA lenses mounted to it, then again we're...

    I think the 18-55 kit has OSS as well.

    Full Frame NEX going to be freakin' expensive!!

    Bit too rich for my blood I'd say. In some ways the rumour does make sense. - It's going to be a FF MILC, that in itself will command a high premium. - Whether it's going to be the successor to the NEX-7 or separate line up altogether (Sony could release a Nex-7N or NEX-7R, etc..) either way...
