  • Time to mock DSLR users?

    I don't think Sony has any current DSLR models as it has switched to CSC with the NEX system and its Alpha DSLRs have now been replaced by SLT (fixed translucent mirror) cameras. So, time to mock DSLR users?

    What do you think? I think it's very funny... but is Sony taking a rather big risk with this?

    Ian I have had one of the best laughs for ages.
    Thank you very much.
    I will smile all day over this.

          Thanks, I wasn't sure about the ethics of posting someone else's photo, but I don't suppose it does any harm as it's credited to the Flickr user.

            It's a grey area - I guess you post photos on Flickr to share with others and Flickr provides tools for embedding such photos in other sites. We're not profiting from the photo, merely appreciating it and of course it is fully credited and even linked back to the Flickr page where it resides.

                  Must admit I wouldn't mind examining the Macro Mode photographers technique a little more closely.

                    Oh! YES Stephen and we KNOW EXACTLY which ONE macro photographer you mean

                    One of the reasons I like taking lots of small batteries with me, is I do not get tarnished with the huge GRIP brigade ... and two the E-5 is lighter ...
