  1. Evidently, not so good for video: http://www.eoshd.com/content/11581/exclusive-review-sony-rx10 Video is probably secondary for most of us, however, it is unfortunate.
  2. The Imaging Resource has completed its RX10 review: http://www.imaging-resource.com/camera-reviews/sony/rx10/ Looking good. I'm still going to wait, though.
  3. It's hit the shelves in the U.S. and Canada. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-DSCRX10-Cybershot-Digital-Camera/dp/B00FRHTSMW/ http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1009156-REG/sony_dscrx10_b_cyber_shot_dsc_rx10_digital_camera.html http://www.henrys.com/81976-SONY-DSC-RX10.aspx#
  4. This should be interesting to those of you considering transitioning or who have already transitioned to mirrorless camera systems: http://hybridphoto.pro
  5. I'll add that I've sold off or am selling my full frame gear. My 5DIII/24-105L eBay auction ended last week with a $3000 bid. Then the knucklehe...er gentleman contacted me and said he didn't actually have the funds. So, it's back up. So now I have a Canon SL1 with kit 18-55 and 55-250 STM lenses and a recently acquired 70D with a Sigma 17-50 f2.8. I'd sold an earlier copy of this lens and then really missed it. This combo is significantly lighter than the 5D/24-105 and the image quality is really not that much different, in fact, the Sigma 17-50 is sharper than the 24-105L. I'm also keeping m
  6. I have an RX100 and the lens on mine is fine. I think there was a bit of variability among cameras though as some people have issues and others don't.
  7. I haven't ordered one. I'm going to wait until next year after they've been out awhile to see what bugs crop up. It also seems to me that other manufacturers may have similar things on the drawing board. Perhaps the price will drop a bit. Here are more reviews: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/sony-cyber-shot-rx10-review-23331 http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/sony_cybershot_dsc_rx10_review/ http://www.cinema5d.com/news/?p=22136
  8. If you have the opportunity to photograph a color run, a few words of warning: http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2013/05/how-to-ruin-your-gear-in-5-minutes-without-water
  9. Here's a line of tripods that looks interesting: http://www.mefoto.com I looked at one in a store and it's very well built and fairly lightweight.
  10. If you use it to attract birds to be photographed for stock then it's a business expense anyway. Suppose however that you have a dark culinary intent ? This is 'Percy' a refugee from a local Game shooting Syndicate who gets very upset if accused of Tax Evasion - (The pheasant not the syndicate !) Now there's a stock photo idea appropriate in the States this time of year. Someone feeding a turkey with one hand and holding a hatchet in the other.
  11. Another one with very interesting image comparisons. Keep in mind, they're jpegs. It'll be really interesting to see what can be mined out of raw files. http://www.imaging-resource.com/camera-reviews/sony/rx10/#IQC
  12. Since there is a fair bit of interest in the Sony RX10 as a lightweight stock capable camera, I thought it might be good to have a thread to compile reviews. Here's one from Steve Huff: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2013/11/11/the-sony-rx10-review-one-amazing-superzoom/ My 5DIII and three full frame lenses are on eBay. I have a little SL1 with the kit 18-55 and 55-250 STM zooms, capable performers, but I have a feeling I know where part of the eBay proceeds are going.
  13. Images from the Canon Gs from the 9 up have been accepted by Alamy although the cameras have never made the suitable list except for the large sensor G1X. They've not made the unsuitable list either, so it's okay to submit images from them. Shoot raw, process carefully and you can get some nice results.
  14. I also want to mention re the RX100 and tabletop, I generally use shutter priority and keep the speed up above 1/100. Sony's stabilization isn't quite as good as the Canon S series, so you can't let the shutter speed dip too low. Unless of course you have it on a tripod.
  15. I've become a former event shooter, for the most part. And I figure I can alway rent a 5DIII and a lens or two if something comes up. I just uploaded a batch of images from my archives going back eight years although a few missed last night's update. Click my images, you'll find them interesting.
  16. My 5DIII and three lenses are now on eBay. I have an RX100 and have taken decent food shots in restaurants and used small LED panels at home with good results. But I didn't entirely give up on SLRs. Right now the only one I have is the little Canon SL1/100D with the kit 18-55 55 STM lens and the new 55-250 STM, which are fine for what I do and far less strain on the back. In fact, the 18-55 is sharper in the corners on the crop body than the 24-105 is on the full-frame.
  17. I modeled for stock almost twenty years ago as a thirty-something businessman who had one too many. I did a pretty good job of looking pissed, as they say in the UK. The officer is a real Illinois State Trooper. They let us borrow him for an hour. http://cmsp.com/stock-photo/195-00718/DUI-BREATHALIZER-FIELD-TEST-WITH-ADULT-MALE.html
  18. Paul, You're getting good advice here. Take it. However, if it makes you feel any better, even though I can't remember the last time I failed QC, my sales are in the dumper. The year started great but now things have dwindled to a trickle. Hang in there.
  19. Thom Hogan has an interesting take on the Df: http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/digital-confusion-with-the.html Boy I hope Canon doesn't follow suit and come out with a D-ae.
  20. Whoa. I didn't realize you were in danger. I didn't mean to make light of it.
  21. If you can wait until November and don't mind dropping $1300, this is coming: http://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2013/10/16/sony-rx10-review-first-impressions-what-might-be-the-ultimate-bridge-camera
