    Sury wrote:Will Not StrongCongratulations, Sury! A good lens...Don't worry too much about the will power, Sury. You know what they say about son-in-laws and daughters: "You're not losing your daughter, you're gaining a son." As long as that 'son' is good quality, you are unharmed by the change. And that 135mm 1.8 ZA looks like […]

Amazon – possible SanDisk UHS-1 card bargain

sandisk45mbs

Yesterday we received two SanDisk 30MB/s 16GB SDHC cards from Amazon UK – £15.99 each, a couple of pounds more than regular Class 10 cards like the Transcends we normally use on all current Alpha and NEX models. You must have faster than 15MB/s for cameras such as the A55, A580 or NEX-5n not because […] . . . → Read More: Amazon – possible SanDisk UHS-1 card bargain

Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

Today we had the Ripon City Morris side in town, and I was taking still shots using the Nikon D3X with the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AF-S G lens. The NEX was grabbed as an afterthought for video. Well, […] . . . → Read More: NEX-5 live sound

The tortoise and the hares?

SONY has shown itself to be lagging behind the competition as we reach the third bend on the second lap of the development of HD-video capable DSLRs. At PMA 2010, nothing ‘real’ was shown and the closest they came to further launches in the Alpha range was an advanced pre-production prototype of a 24mm f/2 […] . . . → Read More: The tortoise and the hares?

Canon EOS 500D video HD example

My first tests with the Canon EOS 500D were posted on dphotoexpert.com, but given the number of search engines now flagging up this site for Canon 500D searches, I’m putting this post here as well. This is an edited selection, shot in a mixture of 1080 and 720 modes, assembled using iMovie and written as a […] . . . → Read More: Canon EOS 500D video HD example
