August 31 2010


Just for kicks, here’s what I’d like to see in one of the next generation NEX cameras, we’ll give it a seven series designation (for an intermediate or advanced amateur model) and call it the NEX-7.  It’ll have ±3 stop exposure compensation with a dedicated button, a slightly larger body like the NEX-3, a real hotshoe, the ability to magnify and image, and flip through all other images at the same magnification, like the A700 and up can do. Also, a mode dial with the basics like A, S, M, MR and AUTO.  With the introduction of the translucent mirrors, maybe Sony can find a way to incorporate some phase detection AF into the camera too.  One last item of interest, this time for the Sony e-mount lens department, how about a kit zoom that collapses, like Olympus has? 

I sent May, June and July homepage entries over to the homepage archives, so if you don’t see something below that was there previously, it’s in the archives now. 

The “Idle chat room” page on the nav bar has been sent to the virtual graveyard, including the four boring articles.  It’s been over two years since I added anything, so in this case, “idle” really meant going nowhere! 

Replacing the “Idle chat room” is the NEX system page.  Here you will find all internal site links pertaining to the Sony NEX system, with lens reviews, comparisons, camera specs, images and accessories.  It’s still a work in progress, and I might change around a few things as time goes on.

Another nav bar link that has been terminated forever is the “coming soon” page.  If you take a look at the top of the page, just above the search bar, you’ll see what I plan on reviewing as soon as I can get a copy. If “next” is written by the product, it means I have one, and am working on it.
