I tried, but the AF never locked on and then just when it did, the battery died.

That's exactly my experience with the NEX-5, using genuine Sony batteries. The NEX-5N has only slightly improved on that, I believe.

Still Capture,
(CIPA standard) 430 shots

Battery life is above average for a CSC, but we do recommend getting a second battery for your NEX-5N if you plan any extended outings or shoot a lot of video.
So it doesn't seem to do really bad, with normal shooting you should probably get 600+ out of it quite easily, maybe towards the 800+.


if you look at the Nikon J-1...
Still Capture,
(CIPA standard) 230


Here is the V1 with and without flash so you can see the impact, it's actually less then i though.

Well this Thread is Dead!

How do people get so off topic, anyway maybe everyone should go like the Full Frame Facebook page(if you have an account). Even if you don't want one(FF) personally we should support the brand. It would look much better if there were more likes. Who knows what Pentax is looking at?

In what why will we support the brand with that facebook site?
It's a bit silly to make such a page, are you hoping to "force" them or something like that?
If you're that desperate you can get a Nikon, Canon or a Sony fullframe camera, right now so why wait?

I'm not so sure about this thread...


Taken with 120mm f1.8 wide-open on aps-c. (Or maybe in was 180 2.8 on FF.)

For a couple of days Frank Doorhof has been posting studio work on G+ and asking people to "guess" which camera he was using.
The secret camera revealed

Turns out all of the images were from a Canon G9. The point being nobody can really tell on the internet. Some people though he had the new Canon 5DIII. A well exposed image taken on a any modern camera is more than enough for web use.

In great studio lighting, I'd pretty much agree.

Take some football shots at dusk and 300mm equiv, follow a fast-moving toddler around a dimly-tungsten-lit house, shoot something really wide... get any distance from the photographic easy-zone and the G9-class camera falls off a cliff.

I think when photogs lke Frank Doorhof do these kinds of things, they're not really saying "all you need is a G9", because they know better - what they're doing is trying to get site hits and get themselves some personal exposure, which those types of articles have proven they do. (notice you have linked to it. )

Absolutely agree.. that being said, some photogs really can pull of some amazing things with low end camera's.. Digital Rev TV as Canikon as it is.. had Pro Photographer - Crappy Camera challenges and gave out cheap under $100 point and shoots for the photog to come do whatever shoot they were going to do... of course the studio lit (even single light) turned out fantastic. And for "some reason" the pro trying to shoot a BMX rider had the hardest time getting anything and ended up staging still shots by the end of it.
Having the K-5 with my 43Ltd (looking @ the Sigma 30mm f1.4) for low light and indoor shooting with the kids, I could not imagine going back to a P&S.. I'd actually need to use a flash again!

Damn! I started off criticising the Sigma 30/1.4 for for being lumpy and too heavy for doing the job of the 43Ltd on APS-C. But if Pentax don't pull their finger out pretty soon and produce something affordable I too will have to take a serious look although it goes against the grain.
