    I'm seeing more and more Bridge cameras on my jaunts round places of interest, they are certainly getting popular.

    Thanks Sury. I really needed a macro lens as this is a very heavy crop due to the fact I couldn't focus any closer.Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Mon May 04, 2015 5:46 am

    Thanks Sury. It was pretty fascinating. I'm sure the light circular patches next to the clam shell are identifiable as something to someone that studies fossils.Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Mon May 04, 2015 5:45 am

Sony Photokina Press conference video – in full

We filmed the entire Sony press conference at photokina. It is split into three sections about 7 minutes each. During filming using the NEX-5, the camera at one point started to show an overheat warning. At this point I should have moved the articulated screen away from the camera body, but did not want to interrupt a very important moment – the announcement of the A7xx. And that’s when it cut out, taking maybe 10-15 seconds for me to move the rear screen, wait a moment, and restart.

Here are the videos. They are all at 720p quality and uses the internal mic, not the add-on mic, as I was ‘travelling light’ for this conference.

    I’m surprised by Sony announcement to open E-mount for third party adapter companies. LL found A-mount lens AF on NEX as slow. May be some independent maker did AF faster e.g. with Nikkor or Canon.
