Just a line to say that I have changed my carry around camera from my old Panasonic, which is now with Alice at Uni.. and my choice for a new one is the Sony DSC-HX9V.
I came very close to getting the Panasonic TZ20..which sounded like the natural upgrade from my old one. However a little...
The recent Photokina Show in Germany showcased some interesting new DSLR's including the Pentax K-5 & Nikon D7000, but Sony have brought out the first real change to the basic design since digital SLR's appeared.
They use a fixed "Translucent" mirror that allows most of the light to go through...

I recently bought an old Sony Cybershot p72 camera from a charity shop. It needs a memory stick pro. Has anyone got one going spare that I could use to try out the camera?
My frind has an olympus SLR (Model escapes me) anyways he has bought an adapter ring thing that allows him to use Pentax or Canon i think it is lenses on it!
Any idea if there is one to fit Sony to allow the same thing and where i can source one from?
Many thanks in advance :o
Hi, new member here.
I have an 18 month old Sony DSC P200, which up to last week has been fantastic. The last lot of shots I took appear to have what looks like a small grease mark, almost dead centre of the pic. I've had the lens cleaned, but there's no difference. I can see it on the screen...
I see Sony has an HD Camcorder out that geotags images and video it produces using its built in GPS. It would be neat to see HD video with location info being uploaded.. I wonder if anyone here can afford such an expensive toy though..
I've seen full HD video cameras for under £300.. so...
I have recently purchased the new A200 from Sony and so far im steadily impressed by the camera, still mainly using it on "auto" setting but starting to experiment a bit more with advanced settings, one small niggle that I have found is the ring hood that is supplied with the standard lens does...
Sony have announced two DSLR's with a new Quick AF Live View system.
The new A300 (10.2 mp) and A350 (14.2 mp) have a simple switch to change from optical view to live view. In live view mode the normal autofocus is used and you can take photos quickly, in bursts and with continuous, tracking...
First of all can I say what a great site this is - I've found lots of useful stuff already.
Anyway, to my problem: I need a replacement for my trusty Dimage X50. It was fine until a week or so ago, when my daughter having borrowed it brought it back with a faulty screen. No outward sign of...
Sony have announced the new a700 DSLR today. The name reflects the Minolta heritage as this class of camera was always numbered in the 7 range. The a700 will go head to head with the new 40D from Canon and the D300 from Nikon.
See here for more details.

I have a Minolta x-700 and have recently inherited a Nikon Nikkor 28mm lens. Can anyone tell me if there is an adaptor available please - I am a beginner and have only used the camera in programmed mode since bought new in 1984 and would like to start learning about lenses. Also what would be a...
A little while ago I 'inherited' a Minolta X-700 plus several lenses, including a 2x teleconverter and extension tubes.
I would really like to get a Minolta (or similar) digital body that will fit these lenses. Does anyone know what choice of body I have got please? I'm not bothered...
Found this site from Google, what a great site. Some really great photo's too what do I mean "some" all are great!
I have just got into SLR photography, after having a konika zd500 for some years it had to be a sony alpha 100 and then a minolta 505si super. So I'm looking for advice etc.
Anyone familiar with the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO lens please?
I have a KM 100-300 which is giving me some softness at full tele, and am thinking of trying the Sigma.
I am trying to find a supplier of a shutter remote control for my alpha-7 (Dynax 7D). I think the part I am after is an RC 1000S. I see it described on the Internet but not for sale. Can anyone point me to a source either by mail or near hatfield, Herts?
Hi. I was just wondering if anyone on here could help me.
I’ve broken (cracked the back screen) my Konica Minolta Dimage X50 camera and I need to know if it’s possible/worthwhile to fix it.
It was a gift from my Dad and he’ll be VERY ANNOYED if he finds out about this so I either need to...
I turned on my camera (Minolta Dimage 7hi) 20 mins ago to be presented with a screen where nothing could be made out because of bright lines flickering across. It is the same in the main viewfinder and the eye one. But then menus will still show up fine on the screen when I access them. Ive taken a...
Today Sony launched the Alpha 100, their first DSLR. Their system is based on Konica Minolta technology and this first model closely resembles the Minolta 5D body, but adds a 10 megapixel sensor and an anti dust feature.

I am off to South Africa on Monday and will need another compact flash card for my alpha-7 digital (Dynax / Maxxum 7D). The manual says the camera takes type I and II CompactFlash cards and microdrives. Prices of compact flash cards seem very different and some are said to be much faster. Currently...
Well I've finally gone and taken the plunge. After months of pondering I have finally purchased a new camera and it's a Konica Minolta 5D. An odd choice you may think with the current situation, but as I already have a range of compatible lenses and accessories from my dynax 60 35mm it makes...
