    Nikon seem to bring out a new body every 6 months, I know that's an exaggeration, but its close. We now have 6 up date/variants of the D5000 in a space of less years. as said, Canon are almost as prolific. Yes, I also have the Fuji X-10 bought a year after launch, its a […]

    Sony actually lost market share recently in Japan yes other regions out there but still their home turf:http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/japan-20 ... ket-share/Fuji is going for a niche market in the X series it will probably survive long term, it's unfortunate that they wiped out their compact/zoom range because a few of them were pretty good I use […]

I got to try out the first new Voigtländer Sony FE mount lenses with electronic aperture setting and manual focus control with a quick overnight test during the UK Photography Show at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre, on March 19th 2016. The pre-production 10mm f/5.6 Hyper-Wide-Heliar and 15mm f/4.5 Super-Wide-Heliar are two of a . . . → Read More: Voigtländer FE 10mm f/5.6 and 15mm f/4.5 III

Sony’s A7R II has a unique position in the mirrorless ILC world, creating the largest image files at over 42 megapixels from an in-body five axis stabilised sensor with exceptional performance given by backside illuminated CMOS.

My reviews in print of the Sony A7R II have now appeared, in the British Journal of Photography, . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

Sony’s Zeiss 24mm f/2 Distagon ZA SSM T* reviewed

The Sony Zeiss 24mm f/2 SSM Distagon ZA T* is probably the best, or equal to the best, in its class. It may perhaps be the best ever 84° angle fast lens ever made for the general SLR system market, and I would happy to pitch it against any of the current equivalent offerings for . . . → Read More: Sony’s Zeiss 24mm f/2 Distagon ZA SSM T* reviewed

It must be two years ago, at least, that an Australian sports photographer confided he had seen a Sony prototype which would blow away everything – an Alpha which could shoot at incredible frame rates (he mentioned 15fps) and follow focus. It may have been something unlike the Alpha 77, which follows focus 12fps . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 77 review – tomorrow today

The Alpha 580 – a three-way view

Once I had a quarterplate hand-and-stand camera, vintage 1920s. Attached to the front standard was a small reflex viewfinder, giving a miniature composition you could use at waist or chest level. On the same standard was a folding wire frame, with a companion eye-sighting window flipping up from the side of the body. This gave . . . → Read More: The Alpha 580 – a three-way view
