    My take is Sony are going for the pro level segment on the A99 II. Those who did stick around might stump up the cash remains to be seen if Sony will do a bit more ie lenses or possibly a more affordable FF body. Or they might keep the A99 around a bit and […]

Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

Sony’s A7R II has a unique position in the mirrorless ILC world, creating the largest image files at over 42 megapixels from an in-body five axis stabilised sensor with exceptional performance given by backside illuminated CMOS.

My reviews in print of the Sony A7R II have now appeared, in the British Journal of Photography, . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II review by David Kilpatrick

Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

sonyjune1529

(Updated June 15th after press conference)

The new Sony A7R II is the camera I’ve been waiting for, which everyone has predicted, and which seems to tick every box without having a huge price label on its own. I find the $3,200 (UK coinfirmed £2,600) matches its stated specifications well. Others may disagree, but . . . → Read More: Sony A7R II, RX10 II, RX100 IV – making everything else obsolete

Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

SONY DSC

Nikon 1 system makes a splash

How many outlets will use that original headline, I wonder, and what inspiration leads to it…

Today, Nikon released the world’s first interchangeable lens digital camera – if you ignore the military version of the Nikonos RS underwater SLR produced with Kodak. Unlike that specialised system, the AW1 is intended for the . . . → Read More: Nikon 1 system makes a splash

Pentax Q up to battle it out with NEX and Ricoh

Although it’s not Alpha, this product announcement – embargoed until 5am UK time, 23rd June, though no doubt by adhering to the embargo we will be a day later than hundreds of websites breaking it – speaks volumes for the impact of Sony’s Alpha system, its interformat lens compatibility, and the future of non-SLR systems.
