How many of us own the EA50

Just out of curiosity I would like to know how many of us DVINFO users own the EA50 and where you are? I know a lot of people read and don't post but I am surprised there is not more of us that have jumped on this camera. I think it is realy cool that I am learning so much by sharing information with guys all over the world.

Steve, one EA50, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Re: How many of us own the EA50

I will be ordering mine on the 29th along with the 50mm lens. I'm looking forward to it.

Re: How many of us own the EA50

I knew you would chime in Don. There is still time before you board the ship. You could return with all of those great family shots and be ready to rock and roll. What are you waiting for ;)

Steve

But seriously, are you like me and do not "work" on your vacation? I would be watching the grand kids (I don't have any yet, fingers crossed) play while cute servers brought me more cocktails!

It wouldn't get here before I leave and then I wouldn't have a good time because all I'd be thinking about is the new toy.

I try not to work at anytime if I can help it but since I have a bad habit of wanting to eat and pay my bills I do BUT not while on vacation.

Re: How many of us own the EA50

I own the EA-50 and am loving it - and learning a lot from this forum. Thanks to all!

I have posted previously here (twice), but with no replies.

Re: How many of us own the EA50

Here's Bert from the Netherlands. Since saturday the 12th of january the proud owner of a Nex-EA50. Coming from a VG20 (and inbetween an HDR-AX2000) this is a huge improvement.

Re: How many of us own the EA50

Hi Bert, do you still have your VG20? I"m curious how the image from the nexea50 compares to that camera, it is said they share the same sensor so there shouldn't be that much difference?

Re: How many of us own the EA50

Dan, Glad to hear from another EA50 owner.
Sometimes we don't see a post and fly right by it and sometimes we see it but know we can't help. I hope what you posted before wasn't a matter of life or death and also that you don't think we don't like poeple from Idaho. ;-)

Bert, again happy to see another EA50 owner. My sister in law lives in Dordchect (sp). One day I'll get there to visit. My wife has been already and told me how beautiful the country is. On my bucket list!

Hi Noa,

I've sold the VG20 about two weeks ago. As far as I know the NEX-EA50 and the VG30 contain a newer sensor compaired to the VG20. But even if it was the same, the vast possibilities to alter the picture with the NEX-EA50 are a way to squeeze better quality video's out of this sensor.

B.R.
Bert

P.S. Yes Don, the Netherlands is a nice country, although it's quite flat (no mountains).

Re: How many of us own the EA50

Welcome Dan,

You had inquired about rain gear. I just posted a picture of the EA50 under my old PortaBrace slicker.

You can't guess around here which post will grow legs and run and what dies as a seed.

It is a bunch of strange guys but no one bites!

Steve

Re: How many of us own the EA50

Thanks Steven,

I actually found a slightly used Kata rain cover for $50. It will serve well in the event I must shoot in rain or snow - or dust. Unfortunately not able to use the diopter with it, but good view of the LCD and all controls.

Re: How many of us own the EA50

A 1 gallon freezer bag can be shaped and fitted to pretty much anything you need. A little gaff tape from the bag to the rain cover and you should be in good shape.
I love my freezer bags! ;-)

Re: How many of us own the EA50

I have it. I'm currently based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Also have the Sony SELP 50mm/1.8 and planning on getting some Samyang cine lenses as soon as possible.

Main use will be music videos, burlesque shows etc. But my hopes is to make a post apocalyptic film/short.
