    To be honest this has sat in my camera bag for the last 6 months without being used. It is a great lens on both A77 and A99 but I'm just not getting the use of it. So I'm contemplating selling both it and the 1.4X converter.The lens is in very good condition with a […]

    In good condition, glass is clean with no scratches or fungus. Was used on the wife's A580 before it was sold. Was serviced last year but the focus is still a little stiff but it works on my A77. Complete with all original caps, lens hood, box and paperwork. Also has a Jessops UV filter […]

  • Aster's Photo Challenge • Re: Challenge #57:"So Green Is My Valley"-submissions until July 5th July 3, 2015
    Here is one from atop Mt. Vesuvius looking at Napoli and Herculaneum. From a different view point, same location. I choose this to showcase the contrast of "barren" land atop the dormantvolcano and the the green of the land beneath the mountain. Technically not a valley since other side is a body of water,so I […]

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

On Saturday, the Household Cavalry chose to provide a guard of honour for a wedding couple lucky enough to have planned their wedding for the day the mounted regiment was in town. I photographed the event from the unique viewpoint of an Alpha 55 fitted with a Sigma 8-16mm superwide zoom, mounted on a 3.5m […] . . . → Read More: Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

NEX-5 live sound

I’ve been using the NEX-5 with accessory mic – and sometimes, by forgetting to bring it, without. 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
