    Thanks guys. Sury it's both. It's a full spectrum modified a580. For IR I have to use a filter on the lens. AF doesn't work, but I have the option of using various levels of IR filters. If I ever get around to buying more filters. Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Sat Nov 28, 2015 […]

B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

I feel slightly sick… I’ve spent so much on buying and replacing successive Sony A7 series cameras and their lenses that I can’t just buy this outright, which I would love to do. I sold my A99 to get the A7R (subsequently replaced by A7II, and now by A7R II) and have regretted it in so […] . . . → Read More: B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

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

A77 B&H price goes through the floor

Just got this link from B&H, ideal for our US readers – http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/817858-REG/Sony_SLT_A77V_SLT_A77_Digital_Camera_Body.html It’s for the original A77, body only, at $549. This is a ridiculously low price for a body with GPS which, bar a small improvement in high ISO performance stated to be 20% (I think it’s a bit more) is not far from the A77 […] . . . → Read More: A77 B&H price goes through the floor

B&H double Zeiss Touit lens deal for NEX


I guess that Zeiss must be working right now on full frame Touit lenses, because this is unprecedented value for those able to buy in dollars without steep shipping charges, duties or taxes – however, the links they emailed out today led to a wrong page on their USED section, and after a lot of […] . . . → Read More: B&H double Zeiss Touit lens deal for NEX

Free software and a cut-price lens


You have until November 3rd to grab a free download of a truly excellent utility for Mac OSX, created by DxO Optics Pro software team – DxO Perspective. It normally costs $19.95 (or local equivalent) as an Apple App store download, but they have made it free for a few days. It’s a fully working, […] . . . → Read More: Free software and a cut-price lens

Friedman’s Alpha 99 e-book released

Well, we knew it would take some time – Gary Friedman has been working on his Alpha 99 e-book since the camera was pre-released to the press, and six months later, he’s got a huge volume as a result. “This is my largest and most comprehensive work to date – 625 pages!”, Gary says. It is available […] . . . → Read More: Friedman’s Alpha 99 e-book released

An amazing bag bargain


We thought that these bags at a low price would disappear, so since buying some last month, I’ve told a few friends but not publicised it. A Facebook posting or so. What is the bag and why is it so good? It’s a Manfrotto Stile Unica VII, the largest size made in these Chinese-fabbed courier or messenger […] . . . → Read More: An amazing bag bargain

Soft strap ideal for Sony Alpha 99

Our Alpha 99 review will be up shortly – but in the meantime, here’s the strap I have been using on the 99. That little wallet attached to the strap has a secure, perfect fit holder for the 99 or NEX-6 flash shoe cover insert or for MS Pro Duo memory cards. Also, it is […] . . . → Read More: Soft strap ideal for Sony Alpha 99
