Will give it a shot over the weekend, don't have access to my camera right now. Thanks for the kind offer

Hi Costa, good to have you here. Although I'm not really sure you would think too highly of the 5R after having used the 5d mk2 for some time :)

Well, I have the timelapse APP for the nex, helps me do some cool videos for our new section. And I wanted a small camera that was good enough not to feel I'm making fun of myself when shooting. The Sony nex seems like the best choice around - at least in terms of image quality vs price.
It's hard to beat the Canon 5dmk2 but I'm not comparing them, I just use each camera for a different purpose.
And I have now for test the new Sony A7 full frame mirorless - will give you some feedback about it if you're interested.

Costa: please do review the A7 ... it's a pretty cool concept, and one that I hope catches on

@alvera : the NEX 6 is a pretty solid performer as far as proper photography goes, the gimmiky parts are something that sony still needs to fix, and they seem to be moving in the right direction with the new open APIs and a much better remote control app

Hello. Here are some RAW files for your own evaluation of the sony a7 and sony kit lens (not sure which one was it, a f3.5-5.6 zoom anyway).
I only had it for a full day and I didn't had the occasion to shoot in bright light (only overcast sky in that day), but you'll pretty much figure out the dynamic range capabilities of this camera, the color tones (a single image with leaves) and the high iso noise (some night shots - check the iso 6400 image there:)

I personally like the camera (Sony a7). The shutter sound is very nice, although a little too noisy. The design is incredible, the focus seemed quite fine, the image quality is very good (better sensor than many high end sensors on the market - see nikon d4 for example).
Most inconvenient for me is the electronic viewfinder - as it is pretty useless when shooting in complete darkness (night sky). You can still see shadows and control the composition with an optical viewfinder.
If I was a beginner photographer, or if my equipment wasn't complete and too difficult to sell/change I would choose the Sony a7 with no regrets - it's a top camera, has AF Zeiss lenses available - what else can you want more?
Meanwhile, I stick to my Canon gear and my Sony nex 5r - that I like more and more each day.

A couple of weeks back I finally got hold of a NEX to MD (minolta's old mount) adapter. I tried it out with a Panagor 28mm (f/2.8) and a Sigma 35-70 (f/3.5-f/4.5) from an old minolta that I had at home.

Its pretty easy to use a full manual lens on the NEX, especially since you can use the focus peaking in the EVF. The Panagor 28mm is very very sharp and it's been great fun to use a prime lens.

It's been pretty quite on the NEX front... no new updates, no new apps. Guess Sony has really spoilt us during the frantic activity of the last year

Yes, there is a restriction on where the camera and phone apps are available. Which is a pretty stupid thing considering that sony sells the camera itself in many of those countries.

I'm pretty sure that people in those areas are using a workaround to get the apps to work. After all that is one of the biggest draws of this camera.

No workaround, the apps can not be used.

I asked a friend from UK to have a Sony account and upload some funds on it so I can use it and buy apps. Being from Romania, I couldn't upload funds to my Sony account even with paypal or Payoneer card issued in US - the problem being the user address (RO).
But now I can play quite a lot with the timelapse app for example.

That is a very beautiful timelapse Costa. However now that you've used the timelapse app and perhaps others as well do you think they are worth the price? Should I also go ahead and purchase them?

How much cost the apps?

I think the Timelapse is the most expensive at around 10$ . There are about 4-5 free apps (remote control for the camera, upload to facebook/flick, and a instagram type app being the most popular). The rest are about 4-5$ per app

Personally I think only the timelapse app is worth the money. The remaining are stuff that I can do in post processing once I get my images onto my laptop or even my phone

The remote is very laggy, you can see the jerky video on the smartphone. It also takes a fraction of a sec to shoot after you press the button and a few sec to load the image to the phone.

Pretty good for tripod use of almost still objects though
