    Fuji X-PRO 1 Fully Leaked by French Magazine 'Responses Photo'

    Beautiful and intriguing camera! If I weren't so happy with the NEX cams I would be sorely tempted if it lives up to potential. I don't know about the optical part of the hybrid viewfinder, though. I've come to really like the EVF on the NEX cameras because WYSIWYG really speeds up setting...

    So much for Google+

    This is exactly why I usually have big ugly watermarks on my stuff and avoid posting them anywhere but my Zenfolio web gallery because it's easy to watermark them there. It's true that copyright info can be stripped out of metadata, but at least Zenfolio doesn't strip it out upon upload, which I...

    Show "Horses"

    You can also get that filmstrip with Flare. It's in one of their presets, but also available by itself as one of their textures. I highly, highly recommend Flare and it is very inexpensive. Unfortunately tho it is Mac only.

    Sony 55-210

    I am about to return my 55-210 due to not just hunting but inability to focus at all in low light. I wonder if it is defective...it does really well in good light and it's sharp if I can get it to focus. I am using it on the 5n.

    Steve Jobs: 1955-2011

    He cannot be replaced. Very sad on so many levels.

    Sony Adorama has NEX-5N in stock!

    I preordered one -- body only -- a week or so ago. This morning I inquired as to when it might be shipped. They told me around the 17th. However, they just notified me it is on its way today! I don't know how many they got in, or how many pre-orders they have to fill, but I thought I would pass...

    To our friends in Texas - please check in! Wildfires and drought.

    Texas Hill Country/Kerr County Hi everyone -- First, Stanley, GOOD LUCK! Please keep us posted. I used to live in Austin and I love Bastrop State Park and feel sick about this. We're OK so far in Kerr County, but worried as we have so much dry stuff around our house. We've done what we...

    Sony NEX Body and lens leaks on sonyrumors.com

    Here we go again with the Sony hate. First the NEX-3 and 5 were ugly and now the NEX-7 is ugly. I think it looks great and I consider my aesthetics as refined as anyone else's. I really don't see the point of posts calling cameras ugly, esp. when it's obvious a lot of people are very excited...

    Grinding Henna

    We left there in 1970. I went to Community School/Iranzamin and also the American school. it was a fantastic experience living there at that time. I remember Mt. Damavand very well. It was so beautiful when snow-capped.

    Grinding Henna

    Alf, cool image! When were you in Isfahan? I went there once or twice on school trips in the late 60s when we lived in Iran. We were in Tehran four years while my dad worked in the oil business in the Persian Gulf. Unfortunately my parents' beautiful slides from Iran were lost in a flood about...

    Zeiss 24mm Lens for Sony NEX to be an f/2 Pancake?

    Just have to say that with the peaking I will be using my manual lenses a lot more. It really takes away the pain and slowness of manual focusing. Sadly, though, it doesn't work nearly as well if you don't have good light, at least in my experience. Peaking is something that needs to be picked...

    Sony Nex 5 Firmware...

    The peaking is just fantastic!!! I don't know how I have lived without it for manual focus, and I like it even for AF. I can't wait to try a macro lens. I'm very hopeful all camera makers will get on board with this. The Toy Camera filter is very similar to Pinhole Camera filter on the EPL-1...
