    .They are beautiful, Sury, and you captured them nicely. They are not as pink as the ones that live in Africa or some other places probably due to distinctive what they feed on here, around these habitats. Not much red algae or invertebrates, apparently. They are a beautiful contrast, tough. Thanks for sharing,YildizStatistics: Posted by […]

Sony launches A99II at photokina

Sony has today released the details of the updated A99II, using a 42MP sensor and 5-axis stabilisation to match the A7RII. It does not appear to have retained GPS and the paragraph highlighted in red later on indicates a weasel-worded possible get out for this – it may not embed GPS in the image . . . → Read More: Sony launches A99II at photokina

B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

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

The launch of and initial reaction to Sony’s Alpha 99 has been spoiled, for many, by the overpricing of the camera generally and to a greater degree in some key markets.

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.

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’
