EVIL camera PIMP club


I figure this one will have less members than the Pentax club, but doggonit I'm going to start it anyways.

So I guess that makes me EVIL camera pimp club member #1. I'm now shooting a Sony Alpha NEX-6 and loving it. I'll throw up a shot or two to get this party started even though it's probably going to fall flat on its face...

nice try, mirror-less will be popular(and it is the trend), but still, a club limit to brand name is better, you should start a sony camera pimp club.

I'd bet money this club will have more members than the Pentax club And please, don't make a Sony club. That would be more embarrassing than the Pentax club

Yeah, since us EVIL doers are still a pretty small group, I'll just keep this club general so that everyone can be included and it will maybe attract more members...though I may be the only one shooting mirrorless on TPT.

What kind of dog is that? Looks like a German shepherd mix? Or is it a pure bred? I have a shepherd mix. She is an amazing dog.

Here is my Shep mix. Taken with a **PENTAX K-30** DSLR haha sorry had to add that. But I do love your dog.

A real Dutch shepherd very nice. They are rare here in the USA unless you know people that breed them for police work. Most of the ones I have seen are not that dark. Are you going to work him? I know off topic but i love dogs. My next dog is going to be a Mal.

Yeah, he's going to be a patrol dog. He has some pretty good bloodlines but isn't an import. He's a black brindle and a pretty awesome dog. I had a mal...they are great dogs too. Depending on who you ask, some say dutch sheps and mals are the same breed. Others say they are not though very closely related. How close? Check this pic...the dog in the picture is a full blooded litter mate to my dog...

Can't believe there aren't others out there eligible for the EVIL Pimp Club. All you photogs falling for the DSLR hype I suppose.

Guess I'll just use this thread to post up some EVIL pics....

Could be that most of us have DSLRs already and don't feel the need to waste money on a different system.

This is probably a nice camera. It seems to do a decent job on shots to the net. Some of us however actually get our stuff professionally printed and/or manipulate photos and this may or may not fall short in that area. There is no way that the lenses offered for this camera can equal the Limited lenses from Pentax or the Nikanon systems.

From what I've read this is designed to be step up from the smart phone

Quite oddly, though, for a camera that makes an obvious effort to accommodate smartphone owners, Sony has removed the touchscreen operation found in recent NEX-5 iterations.

Mirrorless cameras right now have as good of image quality as just about any DSLR on the market. Fact. The NEX cameras are using APS-C DX sensors. Same as many DSLR cameras (and full frame sensors likely out this year). IQ is just as good. They can also use practically any lens on the market, new and old, via adapters. So quality glass is there too, not to mention these systems DO in fact have very high quality native lenses with more coming out. Pros ARE using these systems and there's no reason that professional prints can't be made and since they shoot RAW, the files can be manipulated as well as any DSLR created file.

So in short, mirrorless systems might fall short in function...for now, but certainly not in the end product.

It is the possibility.
Example:
Canon EOS M is 18MP APS-C sensor, same sensor as most pro-sumer Canon EOS DSLR, even the 7D,(60D too), but virtually any lens can be adapt/use on this camera via adapters.
