I have EA shift assigned to a button on my NX5U and you could do the same on the EA50. Preset the AE shift to allow for backlight to your taste in the menus and when you hit the button it will apply to the auto function. Assuming it works like the NX5U.

Digital zoom - loss less or not, solved. Sony very clearly advertised the digital zoom function as loss less. That led to a lot of discussion because new users could see the degradation.

On page 38 in the manual I quote "Due to digital processing, the image quality will deteriorate."

Kind of funny....I knew that.... but I wanted to believe the hype ; )

Peter,

I am 53. I have been making images since 1987 when I started in this business as a still photographer. As I sit here trying to learn the EA50 I am longing for a Nikon F3 that had no electronics except a poorly functioning light meter. Best camera ever made. Seriously, today's electronic wonders blow me away. The bang for the buck with this camera is amazing. It sure beats having a VTR hanging off of your shoulder cabled to the camera head! I know you know what I'm talking about.

This forum allows me to lean from all of you, regardless of age. I love it. The greatest thing I have learned from being "experienced" is to listen and learn.

Steve
