Sony User Self Help Group

I am starting to get a real complex with regards my choice of camera brand to such extent that it is effecting my ability to actually go out and take pics. I even found myself lurking in the shadowy bushes as two "togs" came past with camera straps blazoned with Canon and Nikon - they were obviously pro's

So I set this up for a place - a safe haven - where we can all come and help each other - where we can discuss our perceived inadequacies and discuss how we can get help.

BUT before you can participate and free yourself from this terrible turmoil you have to face your demons...therefore..

I am Chub and I OWN a SONY

Other people can't help it if they buy inferior branded gear. Live long and prosper :laugh:

Just because I own a Mondeo, doesn't want to make make and go and buy a Mercedes, 'cos I'm happy with what I've got and I don't covet anything else.

Here endeth the lesson.

Personally speaking, when I look at photos posted here\TP\flickr etc, the absolutely last thing I think about is the make and model of camera used to make the image. I'm far most interested in the end result.

I think there are a number of people that are far too hung up on brands and defending what they think is the best choice of camera. Interestingly, a lot of these same people hardly ever seem to share their photos, so I can only assume they prefer talking about cameras as opposed to actually getting out and using them. It's one of the reasons I visit here (as well as other forums) a lot less these days.

I've had 3 of the 5 main brands, Sony, Olympus and now Pentax and at no point have I ever felt ashamed of having any of them.
Each system has their own strengths and weaknesses and to be honest I think some of the lure of having the three systems has been partly that they aren't Nikon or Canon.
Its hard to go wrong these days with any of the current DSLR lineup from Sony, Olympus, Canon, Nikon or Pentax so people should get over it and keep shooting!

Out of interest I totalled up the value of my "budget" Pentax gear and it comes to nearly 8K.

Would that buy me a mid range Nikon/Canon?

It'll buy you a lens, you'd need to double it if you wanted a stabilised lens though.

That should just about get you one of their straps. Can perhaps use it round your neck for your car keys.
