Canon kyboshes the competition – full cinema system

Canon has launched, out of the blue as far as we were concerned, a complete fully featured Cinema HD production system including full-frame digital video camcorder and EF-fit lenses designed to compete head-on with the top offerings from Zeiss/Arri and Red. The Cinema EOS system also competes with Sony right in the heart of Sony prime […] . . . → Read More: Canon kyboshes the competition – full cinema system

Sony – please add gain control to A77 sound

SONY DSC

When I had the Canon 60D and 600D cameras for the usual brief period of magazine review loan, one of the things I could have tested more thoroughly was the excellent implementation of sound input gain control. Since it worked, and worked really well, I had no need to. Any system with auto gain, in […] . . . → Read More: Sony – please add gain control to A77 sound

Sony DEV-5 and DEV-3 digital HD filming binoculars

Main1_01_CX39600-800-1200

An invitation to a Sony event on August 15th seemed perfectly timed for the announcement of the Alpha 77 and 65, NEX-7 and NEX-5n. In fact, those cameras were launched in Greece on August 24th – and Photoclubalpha, as a very minor player in this business, was not on the guest list. Nor could we […] . . . → Read More: Sony DEV-5 and DEV-3 digital HD filming binoculars

Sony 5″ video monitor for DSLRs

For some time, I have been using a 7″ Lilliput external monitor for my Alpha and other HDMI output cameras. This is fairly bulky, with its external battery pack, and is mounted on a flash bracket holding it to the side of the camera. The main use of the monitor is for interview-style filming with […] . . . → Read More: Sony 5″ video monitor for DSLRs

NEX camcorder launched

Sony, which has a UK event taking place on Thursday July 15th showcasing new products for the Christmas market, has surprised us by launching its NEX mount HD camcorder with 14.2 megapixel CMOS sensor and 18-200mm OSS interchangeable lens much sooner than anyone expected. . . . → Read More: NEX camcorder launched

Exmor R hits the High Street – new Cyber-shots

SONY puts two 10.2 megapixel consumer digicams on the market in September 2009 using the back-illuminated Exmor R sensor. This CMOS sensor architecture takes the ‘sandwich’ which forms the light-sensitive pixel wells, and reverses it so that the side previously used for connections now faces the image-forming light. This change allows more light to be […] . . . → Read More: Exmor R hits the High Street – new Cyber-shots

Alpha 500, 550 and 850

Sony’s September launch for 2009 looks set to include three new models – the Alpha 500, 550 and 850. The model numbers are confirmed by the usual backdoor leak, appearing in the registration database for SonyStyle USA in this case (Canada has been a past culprit, updating databases associated with their site before the product […] . . . → Read More: Alpha 500, 550 and 850

Alpha 330 – future model?

Latest update May 7th: Sony Style pages are starting to show this header picture, which shows three new models all sharing an unusual handgrip design and using the new lenses: Note – the new models have handgrip sensors or appear to – maybe the nickel problem has been conquered. Also note the radical shift in position of […] . . . → Read More: Alpha 330 – future model?

Nikon D5000 first day – quick HD vid

True to promise, the Nikon D5000 did become available on May 1st in the UK, and my review camera turned up mid-day in time to be photographed and have its battery charged. Taking it out on my walk to the post (regrettably, to send in large sums of VAT and tax…) the sun came out […] . . . → Read More: Nikon D5000 first day – quick HD vid
