  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • Re: A77Mk2 focus settings June 30, 2015
    Can't really help either as I also have a Mk1 A77 and 70-400G. My Mk1 G is a fantastic lens and my only complaint is that the zoom action is too stiff causing it to jump rather than glide.I'm not investing any more in Sony until I see a real commitment to A mount. To […]

  • Sony Alpha 100-900 • Re: Battery power June 30, 2015
    Cholly,I know I'm probably in the minority but if I continue with my hobby in the current mode which involves periods with no access to recharging facilities (up to 5 days) and all that Sony offer is 300 frames on a battery (no future SLT versions), I will be adjusting my expectations over to Canikon.I […]

    .Thank you for these wonderful entries, Birma. The descriptions that come with the photos are also very enlightening, and aptly observed. You add to the photographer's view with words. I believe both are essential for a photographer. I'm happy that the entries are very fitting with the title's theme and I will have a very, […]

  • Off Topic • My stroll through Yodobashi Camera June 30, 2015
    This morning I was walking through Yodobashi Camera. Didn't even pick up any cameras, but just surveying the usual, extensive landscape of row after row after row of camera gear all begging to be touched. Anyway, it got me to thinking about my most expensive camera I have ever bought in my whole life, the […]

ACR 6.2 2010 Process – huge improvement

Before the launch of the NEX models, the last camera we reviewed here was the Alpha 550. The final review pages dealt with the high ISO performance. Following the release of Adobe Camera Raw 6.1 and 6.2, the new ’2010 Process’ has replaced the ’2003 Process’ in conversions (you can select either option).

Sony Alpha 350 – a Creative Review

The introduction of a £399 (street price, RRP £449) DSLR with 14.2 megapixels – with or without a useful type of Live View – should have been applauded by reviewers. It’s the single most important point about the camera. No other DSLR approaches this image size and resolution at such a low price. . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 350 – a Creative Review

Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw

Apple’s Aperture 2.0 is a tedious program to test, with all its creation of ‘projects’ and ‘libraries’, ‘albums’, ‘vaults’ and nonstandard GUI, and it isn’t fast in processing files or passing them to Photoshop (which it does in 16-bit form, just another step to reverse before saving as far as I’m concerned). However, it’s handling […] . . . → Read More: Apple Aperture 2.0 processes A700 raw
