  • Off Topic • Barry Lyndon September 3, 2015
    Last night, I got the chance to see (again) Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece titled Barry Lyndon. Anyone that experiences this film can only come to the conclusion that he is not only a great director of films but a master of photography. The landscapes and interiors are nothing short of brilliant both for their realism and […]

Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

sonyjune1529

(Updated June 15th after press conference) The new Sony A7R II is the camera I’ve been waiting for, which everyone has predicted, and which seems to tick every box without having a huge price label on its own. I find the $3,200 (UK coinfirmed £2,600) matches its stated specifications well. Others may disagree, but they’re probably influenced by […] . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

Alpha 77 II announced

A77 II__front

Sony’s successor to the Alpha 77 improves all-round performance in line with the enhanced 24 megapixel sensor also found in the new A6000 E-mount camera.

A divided path for Sony

300mmSSM-II

Most Japanese camera companies have divisions, groups, and teams right down to the very last individual product. Even a single lens design may have its own small team, from R&D and design down to final assembly. What we are seeing happen in Sony right now is the result of complex competition and collaboration between several […] . . . → Read More: A divided path for Sony

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 review

rx100frontthreequarter-web

The first thing that is likely to strike you about Sony’s one-inch sensor Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 is size. It’s tiny, slightly smaller in body than the Nikon 1 series interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras using an identical size 2.7X factor, one-inch or 13.2 x 8.8mm sensor. This just a fraction over half the area of a standard APS-C […] . . . → Read More: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 review
