  • DSLR system • Revisiting an old friend May 29, 2015
    I decided recently to bring my old Olympus E-510 (my first DSLR) and 14-54 F/2.8 lens out of retirement to see how it stood up to my Sony Alpha A-57 with standard 18-55 kit lens and my Canon 550D with standard 18-55 STM kit lens. I haven't quite mastered posting pictures but the results surprised […]

    JB, Jeff, Thank you for your kind words.JB, I see what you meant by blurring the foreground. It was not intentional. Where I was standing, the mostlogical place was to focus on the second one and that caused the foreground blur. Good observation. Somethingto keep in mind. Also, did you forget to attach an image […]

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

touit2lenses

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

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

manfrottobag1

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
