I know I already asked once, but I feel I should ask once more. I'm looking for Giraffes? Giraffes! fans in the thread. Are there any in here besides myself?

I like Geoffrey.

Not quite what I was talking about, but that works, too.

Sensibly, I shouldn't get this as my first interchangeable camera system. It's too small, there's better image quality from relatively larger, but by all means still small mirrorless cameras; lens choice are even sparser than Sony's NEX line. But sensibility isn't my strong point lately, and so far all of my gut feeling purchases have been satisfactory for most times...

As much as the Eva colours are really cool, I have to say you are right, the Q10 is really not a sensible first ILC purchase. You may as well buy a high end compact given that the Q10 is more or less a toy and no one is going to make glass for it. (Which is the entire point of an ILC in the first place). It would be fun to have alongside something more 'serious' though.

I think I'm still too drawn to Sony's NEX however.........................................  (<--- whatever happened to that guy who'd post like this?)

I quite like the Rei colour scheme, though I always associate fans of Rei with creepy otaku people who want an almost entirely passive doll for a partner lol.

NEX IS DEAD. LONG LIVE ALPHA!!!!

Seriously though. Those new Alpha A7 / A7R's. Nghhh.





I am thinking of getting an A7 to replace my NEX-6. Namely because the A7 actually has audio input options and lovely full frame goodness. Actually, I just bought a second NEX-F3 on clearance so that I can have multi-angle shots with my Youtube videos. It was $285 with a kit lens, which is only a little more than the price the kit lens will attract on eBay. BARGAIN GET IS ME

Gah editing in the mobile site is fruatrating even using my Nexus 7. Wish they have a full editing mode just like in desktop mode.

Anyways, for my budget around 650 AUD or something, there's not much MILC that has all the on hand manual controls like the Q7. Maybe my eyes have just been clouded by how cute it is and how much all the Q system users have used it (hell there's that one Singaporean guy that went to Japan and shot shots of Japan being Japan using the Q7), but most of them have a main DSLR/MILC and used the Q as if it's an advanced compact (well it is) but with novel yet still quite functional. Sigh, I don't know. I want to follow my gut feeling since it never failed me yet, at least in audio purchases, but I'm scared enough to know not to push that luck lol.

The Alpha Dogs are officially in my hands. The big surprise, the cups look a lot smaller then I expected.

It does totally seem fun, but the lens mount system really does cripple it for me. In the same size, you could buy an advanced compact like a Ricoh GR or a Lumia 1020 or something like that. And you could spend the same amount and get something more versatile with the Alpha 3000 and its ilk. 

 

The external control dial is really neat though. But you could get an NEX-3N (which is also an adorable little camera) and attach all kinds of crazy cheap lenses to it. Anything from vintage soviet M42 lenses to CCTV lenses to all kinds of cool stuff. 

 

That said if you got your heart set on it, then go for it and let me know if its any good! I occasionally see the Q system go on sale and I've never seen one in the wild. (I hardly even see the Nikon 1 system here, and the only people I see with NEX's are generally Asians. No idea why.)

I have a iP5. It works well with iOS7 (though I don't think iOS7 is all that crash hot). I like the fingerprint reader though.

Damn that's a nice deal on the NEX-6!  A7 does look sexy, hopefully they are using more standard units for manual controls - I remember before they took it upon themselves to invent a whole new set of units for the manual controls or something.

Hmm, I don't know what you mean. The NEX just uses F-stops, ISO and shutter speeds like any other camera...

 I must have confused it with a Sony alpha I was looking at a long time ago (unless I was mistaken back then).  Glad to hear there is no such issue.

MF, I believe you mentioned that you were going to get the "Slants" by LFF, are those already available?

Or is his web page messed up?

 

http://referencesounds.com/products.html#!/~/product/category=3559791&id=26216815

 

It says "Disponible" which is "In Stock" in Spanish... so I'm confused.

It's probably an unfinished page since I see "normal" Paradox images there but just checking...

 

Is it another take on the T50RPs?

Have you listened to them already?

post #19168 of 21761

I've decided to use the word "transmogrify" as much as possible in my writing for the next few weeks. Any other fun words to try out?

post #19169 of 21761

 

Seems to be FOTM speaker amplifier.  I like the look of it, and the price (unless one uses it bridged).  I just don't have speakers.
