  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • Re: Future of A mount October 23, 2016
    There was never any doubt about Sony's plans for the A mount.They have released a new A mount camera each year since 2006.

    I intend to keep the X10 I like the camera and have been happy with it. Wouldn't have paid the £500 initial asking price but I got a pretty good deal on it and for the outlay it punches out nice images and I like the tonality. Jpegs are good you can get a bit […]

Gary Friedman publishes NEX-7 ‘beyond the guide’ book
