I was down filming and taking photos at the beach with the Sony a6000. There were numerous rainbows out. I saw the Victory Casino Cruise heading out for their nightly voyage going right under a rainbow. Can't get any better than that. Cha-Ching!

This is a real world review based on how most people will use this camera. I used this camera in Manual Mode, Scene Mode, Full Auto, Program Mode. I didn't have the manual I just started shooting. The menu system is outrageous. It's basically got photoshop built in.
A friend at work just bought the Sony RX100 II and was nice enough to let me borrow it for a few days. I will say right off the bat, this is the best point & shoot camera I have ever used. If I put up shots from the Sony RX100 II and a Nikon D700 most people wouldn't be able to tell what camera took which picture, and the prints are amazing as well.
* On a side note, I was surprised at how long the battery lasted on this camera using the flash all the time. Usually, you take one shot with the flash and your battery indicator reduces by one bar. I think I took 20 something photos with the flash before the battery started going down.
I am going to put the original photo next to a photo edited in photoshop using Nik Photo Plugins to see how well the image holds up to editing. I will put a link to the original file so you can download, edit, and see for yourself.
Let's look at some sample images. All shot JPEG Finest quality. All shot hand held.

In this episode of Useful tools for photographers we take a look at the Trekkor fold a privy privacy shelter for use as a portable wardrobe changing room, bathroom, and camping shower. I will be using this item for all of the above. This is most helpful to all the women out there that have to deal with dirty nasty public bathrooms. Hope this review is helpful.
The first video was so much fun we decided to shoot another one. Love this little camera
This was a fun shoot. We tried to find as many different ways to mount the GoPro as possible.

http://goo.gl/3yDex In this video I go through some of the menu on the LCD Touch BacPac for the GoPro Hero 3. I also film the GoPro so you can see that you get realtime preview of what you're recording as it's recording. The LCD is the easiest way to navigate and set settings on the GoPro.
I will use this to compose my shots, timelapse or video. Then turn it off and start recording so it doesn't chew up battery life. I like to see what I am shooting. Connecting to the phone gives you about 4-5 second delay, this is really only useful to set up a shot where you can't see the back of the screen. It is a very cool feature though.
Shot at 720p120 fps edited on a 720p24 timeline in adobe premiere. No slow motion software used just reduced playback speed indicated in video. I'm sure twixtor and aftereffects will give you even smoother slow motion. I also wanted to test the underwater housing. I understand why the touch screen doesn't work underwater. I think it uses the heat from your fingers to engage the buttons, so I wonder if you used this houses when its cold out and your fingers are cold if it will still work?
I left the sound intact so you can hear what it records through the plastic housing
I went out to test the GoPro Hero 3 BacPac and Timelapse function from a tripod. I used the BacPac to compose the shot then turned it off, then used the remote to start and stop.http://goo.gl/3yDex
I finally got my GoPro Hero 3 this weekend.
I wanted to shoot and share some handheld test shots and process them in photoshop to see how the photo files took the processing. I also wanted to see how well the metering system worked. I would say its just ok but good enough for what it is point and shoot. I shot with the case on.
So far I am very pleased with my GoPro Hero 3. I have to say it's one of the best pieces of electronics I've ever owned, for what it is. IT'S TRULY AMAZING! I can't wait to get out and shoot more with it so stay tuned!
