  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • Re: Camera sales still dropping.. July 1, 2016
    I guess your not a fan of Sony Alpha SLT cameras, strictly not an SLR but operates in the same way. I'm tempted to look at M4/3, I love the Pentax OVF but their lenses are over priced for the performance they give IMHO. Nikon is a safe bet where ever you are in the […]

    Lovely shots Mike. In the last one it looks like the parent is trying to rest while the kid screams. I can relate to that. Statistics: Posted by the_hefay — Thu Jun 30, 2016 10:05 pm

My brother called me 2 days ago to ask which DSLR he should buy - tired of the phone/point & snap pics and finds it too troubling to look for film and developing these days.

B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

Hasselblad HV from B&H

I feel slightly sick… I’ve spent so much on buying and replacing successive Sony A7 series cameras and their lenses that I can’t just buy this outright, which I would love to do. I sold my A99 to get the A7R (subsequently replaced by A7II, and now by A7R II) . . . → Read More: B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

A99 with 28-75mm lens

At photokina 2010, Paul Genge from Sony pretty much told me that Sony’s future lay in the EVF (translucent mirror or otherwise, Electronic View Finder) models. He was not able to say anything firm. Since then, I’ve spoken to him on several occasions and he has repeated that Sony left all options open but the . . . → Read More: The EVF future

Four new Alphas – and two ‘translucent’

It’s a funny word to use, because the mirrors involved are transparent and not translucent (which implies passing light but not in an image-forming manner). Translucent means semi-opaque, letting light through in the way that an opal perspex sheet or Kodatrace foil does. Transparent means something you can see through.

But now, thanks to the . . . → Read More: Four new Alphas – and two ‘translucent’
