    I don't think there was anything unfair about my Minolta 24-85 comments. The sony 24-70 is a great lens, but also over-rated. I do happen to have a "pristine new-old-stock copy" of the Minolta and In low light the sony is better, but in most situations it is not a better lens then the Minolta. […]

    Edward, I use the Minolta 24-85 which is a FF lens on my Sony A37, it gives superb sharpness because of the crop factor, same with my KM 17-35 f/2.8 D, both bought second hand for under a £100 each, I'm about to get a Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 as my standard kit lens.It was the […]

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 Self Satisfied Idiot instead?).

Press release follows. Rant over (or not quite, see end).

—————————————-

Sony has teamed up with Snapfish by HP to make online photo printing even easier for owners of Cyber-shot™, “α” A–mount and E-mount digital cameras and Handycam® camcorders.

The latest version of PlayMemories Home software now lets users* order great-looking prints from Snapfish, the online photo printing service from HP. With millions of users worldwide, Snapfish offers a wide range of high-quality personalised photo products – from individual prints and photo books to posters, mugs, greeting cards and more.

PlayMemories Home Version 2 will be available for free download for customers of new cameras and consumer camcorders from Sony and will allow you to upload images directly to Snapfish. Just click on the Snapfish icon: once you’ve registered for your free Snapfish account, it’s easy to upload selected images from PlayMemories Home for online printing and delivery to your home.

As an additional incentive for Sony camera owners, there’s a tempting offer to save 50% on your first photo book for newly-registered Snapfish users.

Included with all new digital cameras from Sony, PlayMemories Home software makes it easy to enjoy, share, manage, edit and print all those photo memories stored on your PC’s hard drive.

The latest version of PlayMemories Home PC software (Version 2) with Snapfish integration comes free of charge with all new digital cameras and consumer camcorders from Sony. Existing PlayMemories Home users can update to the latest version by visiting www.sony.net/pm

* Snapfish service is integrated with Sony PlayMemories Home Ver. 2 software in these countries: United States, Canada, China, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, and Ireland.

I just wish all this stuff would go away and we could have honourable, sensible names for reliable and excellent services instead of stuff made up to appeal to infants. Fortunately the Sony software is PC-only. They must think Mac users are grown up. But they are not bright enough to identify what platform visitors to the weblink above are using. Although there a popup listing the (Windows only) platform versions applicable, Mac users can happily click a download button and get a completely useless .EXE file delivered. Most download pages prevent this because they know there are as many inexperienced Mac users as there are any other platform. Ditto iOS and Android. – DK
