  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • Re: Cards on the table.... September 29, 2016
    The area that doesn't make much sense is the 1" sensors they are priced way above APS-C (bar the cheap Nikon 1 bodies or older Sony models). At the right price it's a decent sensor. I'm not convinced with the "pretend" medium format either and by that I mean the Pentax 645 and recently the […]

  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • Re: Will there really be an A99ii September 29, 2016
    I quite agree which is why I said ages ago that you have to have a range of models for different buyers (and do a bit of work on the system overall). There is a huge gap from the A77II to A99II more than most will stomach unless you already have the A99 and deep […]

    Is the new 99ii really aimed at the professional market, if so, they will struggle against Canikon, who are well established globally in that market, I cannot see Pros trading in whole systems worth thousands to go over to Sony. I guess its aimed possibly at existing A mount users, new pros to the business […]

    Canon can afford to price the 5dmkIV at that price so it does not shock me at all. It is outrageous but then pricing hasn't exactly been going down on cameras. They have enough users willing to pony up the cash. Mind you I tried the MkIII and didn't see what all the fussy was […]

Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

A99 with 28-75mm lens

The launch of and initial reaction to Sony’s Alpha 99 has been spoiled, for many, by the overpricing of the camera generally and to a greater degree in some key markets. The promise of the SLT design, and Sony’s move away from flapping mirrors and optical prisms with their associated collimation and alignment, was . . . → Read More: Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

Sony links up with HP’s Snapfish

Unfortunately your editor really just wants to go and live somewhere else, preferably a different planet. ‘PlayMemories Home‘ was bad enough but now it’s linked to another truly naff name, HP’s Snapfish. At least they haven’t tied up to the website with the worst name in the world, SmugMug (why didn’t they call that Slightly . . . → Read More: Sony links up with HP’s Snapfish
