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.
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.
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.
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.)
I had my hand on a Nikon full-frame DSLR kitted with tons of stuff, and a super telephoto lens, complete with lens hood.
It dwarfs my NEX by a huge margin, and you need to be VERY steady with that, unlike the NEX which can be held with one hand. The weight is out of hand, too. It needs its own bag (it's from someone else in the same group), while I can stuff mine in my usual without caring.
Even the viewfinder is very uncomfortable compared to the bright LCD :3 Not to mention all the things you can do with a digital display
