I would have to say that i'm never far from a camera. The iPhone works ok, but I really like the features of a DSLR's. I've been looking very closely to the Olympus Pen camera models as a solution because sometimes it's not a good idea to keep the 5D Mark II in the trunk of the car while i'm cruising the mall. Everyone is talking about Sony's new lineup as the new Game Changer in DSLR video cameras. The Nex-3 and the Nex-5 are soon to be released, main difference between the two are how the bodies are made. One beefier than the other as well as more advanced video recording features in the Nex-5. Sony is also talking about a concept Video camera that will accept the same interchangeable lenses as the Nex's. Where you at Canon?

After reading the writeup at BHPHOTOVIDEO.com, and checking out some of the sample photos, new 'sweeping panoramic' features, and fancy 6 photo analyzing 'Twilight mode', I think i'm sold on this one when it becomes available.

There's no doubt that camera manufacturers are pushing new product lines to get into the latest trends. They are set to ride this wave of HD Video capabale - interchangeable lens cameras. In the past Size did matter on a camera. I remember shooting my first wedding on a Canon 5D Mark II and hearing one of the guests whispering 'Why are they shooting with such small cameras?". Yeah we really didn't look very professional compared to the cousin with a 7 year old Sony VX2000.

But after seeing how capable the Canon 5D Mark II was against larger format cameras, smaller is the new trend. Olymupus brought back the Pen, Panasonic is really pushing their line of DSLR style cameras, and now Sony is in with the Nex-3 and Nex-5. Great commercial, it really sells the product, but what's up with the guy taking a lens out of his pocket (with no body caps), and then the dude on the pier trying to do the Robot? LOL. Personally, I think those sections could have been left out....

Peep this review on some of the new cool features.
