    Film? xD

    I guess we have lots of factors to blame for video-capable cameras being everywhere. Now you can get a good DSLR or "mirrorless" for video at less than a grand. Yay, digital! (Helps a lot that the Canon 5D Mark II and III are very capable, though you'd looking at about three grand... for the body only. Egad. (Try looking for APS-C DSLRs and CSCs))

    This was the DSLR that I used during the DSLR workshop about 6 months ago. I hated how big and relatively bulky it was and I basically cringed during the session. I had more fun using a compact system model. Now that's what I call portable. Not an entry-level DSLR. Of course, you might want the controls that a DSLR would offer you.

    Now that's out of the way...

    By the way, what camera(s) do you have, Kippity Kip?

    My knowledge of cameras is limited (I'm more of a post-production guy), but that does look interesting. Seems Sony are trying to bridge the gap between DSLR and ENG/video cameras... heard Canon are doing something similar. All good news for me at any rate - not having to spend thousands on a decent film camera.

    Speaking of a DSLR and Handycam having a baby...

    Did you know that there exist some higher-end Sony Handycam models these days that use the E-mount system?

    I'm poking around with RAW+JPEG (Fine) mode with my camera now. Being able to do a lot of adjustments in post with RAW files (ARW for Sony cameras) is a godsend. You can do a lot of adjustments without degrading the image quality.

    Also, a nice surprise: At ISO 100, for some reason, there's virtually zero noise even with noise reduction off.

    Sounds WTF-y.

    The HP's printer bit is every bit unreliable. Streaks? Jams? Yeah, I need a working printer/scanner right now. Not unless you want the hassle of checking in right at scheduled time instead of waaaaaaay in advance...

    Seems like my Sony Alpha NEX kit in total is 392 grams (camera + card + battery + attached lens). I think I'm actually glad that I didn't buy a DSLR.

    I should get a new printer - I have an old HP printer/scanner, but the printer bit broke. Scanner still works.

    And yeah - it's fine. :3 I can wait.

    Hugh time? :

    And it might not even be a long while. I'm thinking of replacing the yellowed HP MFP in my old home with a new, ink-efficient Canon that will work very well even with infrequent use, because the genuine ink cartridges are ridiculously cheap. (I'm looking at $13 converted for a 21mL high-capacity black, and $16 for a 15mL CMY.)
