    I'm sounds like your camera and lens choice worked for you. On a side note, my experience with the A77ii is that the raw files respond well in LR to exposure correction. I shot some indoor pictures of my niece's graduation using iso 800 and an exposure compensation of -2 to keep the shutter speed […]

15H_GM_lens_image_04

On Tuesday, February 2nd 2016, Sony UK held a press event to which I was invited. Well, I’m in a different country and about 400 miles from their Weybridge offices, so as usual my trusted English office editor at large (and son) Richard made the still substantial journey from Leicester. The result was a completely […] . . . → Read More: Sony’s Master plan – new 85, 24-70, 70-200 and more

Today I visited the press preview of Photography: A Victorian Sensation at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.

You can visit this entirely free if you […] . . . → Read More: Victorian Photography in Edinburgh

Blad bling going for a song

Well, I never really liked what Hasselblad did with the smaller Sony cameras – but what they did with the A99 is pretty cool, with the different body skin and control details. At the original price? A rip-off! For $3999 including a 24-70m CZ lens and a special case – a bargain. This is still an […] . . . → Read More: Blad bling going for a song

Sony confirm silent mode in A7S

Today, Sony confirmed a rumour – no doubt started as a result of pre-production tester leaks – that the A7S would have a completely silent all-electronic shutter mode. This is not the same as the Electronic First Curtain shutter found on the A7, A99, A77, A6000 and so on but conspicuously absent on the A7R. […] . . . → Read More: Sony confirm silent mode in A7S
