    It's actually big tourist attraction, but not for korean citizens . Only tourists can be there.//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Demilitarized_ZoneKoreans say this: "If the big brothers did not help us, then we would have been one country for a long time."MemoriesStatistics: Posted by ValeryD — Sat May 27, 2017 11:19 am

    Interesting shots to say the least. The dichotomy there is mind boggling. Do you find the open hostility between two Koreas presented in the media (in US)?SuryStatistics: Posted by sury — Sat May 27, 2017 10:00 am

Sony’s Master plan – new 85, 24-70, 70-200 and more

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 . . . → Read More: Sony’s Master plan – new 85, 24-70, 70-200 and more

Sharp vintage glass – and subject

Twenty years ago I was operating one of the first full service digital photo studios in the world. I had already published, back in 1986, the world’s first desktop published commercial periodicals and won the UK Printing Industries Research Association inaugural DTP Awards, in 1987, for this. We’d bought the first Apple laser printer in . . . → Read More: Sharp vintage glass – and subject

The Fotodiox Tough E-Mount

Machined from brass and chrome-plated, in the tradition of lens mounts from 50 years ago and not necessarily the best solution for precision or lifetime wear, Fotodiox’s TOUGH E-mount is a replacement body mount bayonet which you can fit to your existing A7R, A7, NEX-7, A6000 or any other metal-mount E-mount body in a few . . . → Read More: The Fotodiox Tough E-Mount

Sony Alpha 7R – the Swiss Army Knife camera

I guess it’s time to publish another field test review of the Alpha 7R despite rarely having used the camera in anger, or in any state other than anger. It arrived in late November and caught me at a time when I was not going anywhere or doing anything, nothing was happening and the weather . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 7R – the Swiss Army Knife camera

Using the 10-18mm OSS zoom on full frame

This is a pretty awful case of vignetting and distortion – as you would expect. It’s from an APS-C format wide angle zoom, the 10-18mm f/4 SEL OSS lens for NEX, used on the Alpha 7R full frame mirrorless body. Early in the launch period of this camera, various far more attractive images appeared . . . → Read More: Using the 10-18mm OSS zoom on full frame

Sony A7 merges NEX and RX lines, RX10 revives classics

Although some of my information back in September was off-mark (writes David Kilpatrick), the post which I put up here was definitely right about the new A7 or rumoured ‘full frame NEX’ being based on the RX body design. I gather it was not the Alpha division, or the NEX division, which handed the prototype . . . → Read More: Sony A7 merges NEX and RX lines, RX10 revives classics
