:?Does anyone know what Sony has planned for the F-828? I did not see it advertised at all at Christmas, and it is harder to find in the stores. Is there a problem with this camera? It is so unlike them to not compete...

Thanks

The F828 is no longer being made. Hopefully something good will show up soon for its replacement!

Yeah.. i was planning tobuy the F828 but end up with the V3 because I think the newer version of F828 is maybe just on the horizon.

Here's a good read about the Sony F828. It is titled A Flawed Jewel but read on..

and here's the 2nd part of the review (two weeks of shooting on Safari in Tanzania, East Africa)

It was as a result of 'reviews' like this one, that we now refer to that site as 'Ludicrous-Landscape'

People say that if you read there that it is dark at night and bright during the day...it is wise to get a second opinion.

I'm afraid this is one site where you can't take anything written there at face value.

I thought the Luminous Landscape website did a fantastic review of the F828! I love my 828 it's a fantastic camera! Sony made a firmware update which made other reviewers re-think their previous negative review of the 828. Check this: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1570111,00.asp
