    Thumbs up Keeping it constant

    Another note: The distance between the A700 & A850/A900's Hot Shoe and VF are identical, so the LIVE Video Camera fits perfectly, with no modification.

    Yes, this is my personal version of "LiveView" ... only you can see through the lens from over 150-feet away, via a USB-Extender

    One of the very cool aspects of the A700 & A850/A900 is "Remote Control" software. The development write-up (< click on this) is a blow-by-blow exploration of this unique and rather fun aspect of the high-end SONY DSLRs and PC-control. The only missing element was "remote zoom" control. If you are using a PRIME lens, then it does not matter.

    Attention to detail. Yes!

    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.

    Exclamation Memory Card faults

    I have been noticing some memory card faults with the 16GB Transcend CF Memory Card,

    requiring the complete re-powering (battery removal) of the α850 camera. Now, I want to point out that I never experienced this issue with the α100 or α700 DSLRs, with this very same card.

    Have you α900 DSLR owners had any issues with your camera ... and what CF memory card are you using?

    I don't think any of us can withstand "Memory Card failure", no matter what camera we are using ... that's bad news!

    Red face Change of card ... a hidden expense

    Well, another "executive decision" ... I heading out to Calumet Photographic ("It's where the pros go"), to get the SanDisk Extreme IV 16 GB CF ... it has a $60 rebate on it ... and it's 300x ... unlike the Transcend's 133x speed. I am supposing it just is not fast enough to capture the 24.6MB datastream being thrown at it. I am not shooting that fast, either. Troubling ... will do tests in the store to compare, for sure

    The α700 and lower end DSLRs are probably fine with 133x speed.

    a700 is UDMA capable too. But the FF may benefit more since the file sizes are probably double.

    I use exclusively Sandisk Extreme IIIs 16, 8, and 4GB cards. I wouldn't trust anything other than SanDisk or Lexar, too many bad apples in Kingston, Transcend, and Ritek.

    $160 + tax on the full amount is way to steep for 16GB @ calumet.

    Extreme IIIs on sale are the best balance between speed/price. 30MB/s (200x) is plenty atm, especially for this camera.
