  • Alpha A-mount System • Re: Future of A mount June 18, 2019
    Yes some good prices around. More A99's then I would have expected, so it seems it might have sold pretty well - despite the high price at release. In most ways I'd be happy to run with A99's in the future - there are quirks and annoyances, as with all cameras. Importantly it unlocks all […]

Alpha 550: sky noise, exposure and Auto ISO

My review of the Alpha 550 has caused controversy because of the blue sky noise. I might as well say that over the last week, I’ve used the 550 in a wide range of conditions – some very bad conditions included – and its failure to match ISO 100 finesse would not worry me at . . . → Read More: Alpha 550: sky noise, exposure and Auto ISO

A700, 6400 ISO, seven raw processors

There’s a lot of controversy right now about whether or not the image structure of the Alpha 700 files at very high ISO – mainly 3200 and 6400 – is as clean as raw processed results from other comparable cameras like the Canon 40D (does not offer ISO 6400), the Olympus E-3 (does not offer . . . → Read More: A700, 6400 ISO, seven raw processors

Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw

Apple’s Aperture 2.0 is a tedious program to test, with all its creation of ‘projects’ and ‘libraries’, ‘albums’, ‘vaults’ and nonstandard GUI, and it isn’t fast in processing files or passing them to Photoshop (which it does in 16-bit form, just another step to reverse before saving as far as I’m concerned). However, it’s handling . . . → Read More: Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw
