  • Alpha NEX system • Re: An Interesting Dilema For The Future April 28, 2016
    Different preferences,different solutions. Now I don't often go over 300mm let alone 600mm so it's a matter of choice, and I can't justify upgrading to say a Series 11 70 - 400 mm A mount or any FE similar lens that may become available. The quality of the Sony 1 inch sensor is acceptable to […]

Both updates have similarities, mainly adding a menu item to lock the Movie button and prevent accidental video takes. This is more important than it might seem, as the Sony memory card structure only permits video or stills to […] . . . → Read More: Firmware updates for Alpha 77, Alpha 65, NEX-7, NEX-5R, NEX-6

Sony DT 16-50mm f/2.8 SSM

I’m about to offend myself. I own this lens, and I know how upset owners of brand new lenses get when someone says it’s not perfect. Well, the 16-50mm SSM is far from perfect and if you know how to check out lenses, you’ll agree should you be lucky enough to own one. It’s a […] . . . → Read More: Sony DT 16-50mm f/2.8 SSM

Watch the birdie – will Sony’s GPS surprise?

a77front

Before reading this article, which has attracted a lot of traffic and attention, please remember this is my personal speculation and could be entirely wrong (I’ll be very disappointed if it is miles off target and they omit GPS… or my reading-between-the-lines turns out to relate to a different product like a superzoom pocket camera […] . . . → Read More: Watch the birdie – will Sony’s GPS surprise?

The truth about 24 megapixels

There is a rumour, which the ides of August may stab in the back or elevate to divine truth, that the coming Alpha 77 will have 24 megapixels.
