    Again, on a need basis. If you need better shots, right now ... the A700 is the choice ... but, if you can wait ... why not? Only YOU know your real needs.

    I know I certainly miss my A700 ... while it is back in Connecticut, being "redone." Precision Camera wasn't all that precise, in this case. Personally, I think SONY owes me something special for the hose-up, not just the loss on my camera ... AGAIN!

    The thing of it all, is that they sent me a survey, concerning the repair and I responded ... explaining the failure ... and not a word of follow-up, until I called and complained. That's not all that thorough as far a customer service goes. Why ask if you do not plan of following up with failure? Even Precision Camera asked about it and I told them the same thing ... they had not fixed the original issue. BUZZ ... not a word from them.

    Anyway ... hopefully, they will contact me Monday, with an ETA. Don is not a happy camper, this weekend. I am very thankful that the A100 is a good backup.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    I get better results increasing Exposure in LR2 than by increasing the ISO an equivalent amount. For example I can increase an indoor ISO 400 shot by 2 whole stops (same as changing to ISO 1600) without much increase in noise at all. The shot would have been lower quality at ISO 1600, so the software got me the better quality shot.

    Still, this isn't a replacement for proper exposure so I wouldn't necessarily change your shooting style. There are still reasons to use high ISO in your camera and if you understand exposure you will get this. But the fact is some images can be recovered better by software.

    Isn't that more or less what he's doing? He underexposes by 3 stops and then rescues it in a Raw Converter.
    I suppose his thinking is that it's easier to rescue shadow detail wheras blown highlights are gone for ever.
    I don't see his logic in going Manual though.

    i use the exposure setting in LR2 quite often and i agree increasing exposure in LR does not add much noise.

    I pondered between the 300 and the 700 went with the 700 and haven't been more pleased. I had no DSLR at the time, so I guess if I had a 100 through 350 I don't know if I would "upgrade" to a 700 or wait and see what shows up this year. Anyone else get the Sony email about new products I was all excited but nothing new in DSLR's however the new Vaio hand held PC's look pretty neat, did't read anything about them yet.

    PMA appears to be a complete surprise, this time. I wonder why?
