  • Give it Your Best Shot • Re: Our Recent Motorcycle Tour of Kinnaur-Lahaul-Spiti July 24, 2016
    Nice Set. I do find first one a tad overexposed. I found the same with some of my A77MII shots of Machu Pichu.I had the Exposure Compensation dialed to +2 by accident. Rear dial default setting in any mode except M. The mountains and water look like a water color in the 3rd one - […]

  • Lens Lore • Re: How wide is wide enough? July 22, 2016
    Thank you classiccameras. Since I have not done any wide angle photography (at least knowingly), the intent is toexplore the genre, for want of a better term. Essentially learn what to do and what not to do. I always used panostitching as my answer to UWA lenses or lack thereof, and that is not always […]

New firmware for A7RII, A7SII

Sony has released new firmware 3.20 for the A7RII and 2.10 for A7SII to enable XAVCS video recording on SDHC (rather than the larger XC) cards.

rx100-vII

In a move which will not delight many owners of the 2012-released RX1 and RX100 cameras, Sony has chosen to update both of them in fairly subtle ways which improve performance without changing the basic lens specifications at the heart of each camera. The makeover to produce the RX100 II is more thorough, and includes . . . → Read More: Sony updates RX1 and RX100, adds new flash

A divided path for Sony

300mmSSM-II

Most Japanese camera companies have divisions, groups, and teams right down to the very last individual product. Even a single lens design may have its own small team, from R&D and design down to final assembly. What we are seeing happen in Sony right now is the result of complex competition and collaboration between several . . . → Read More: A divided path for Sony

Alpha 850 – 24 megapixel 3fps in 900 body

Sony’s new Alpha 850 will be identical to the Alpha 900 in size, handling and external design – including the omission of onboard flash. The camera, expected to be launched before September, uses the same 24.6 megapixel CMOS sensor as the Alpha 900 but has – it is rumoured – only a single BIONZ processor, . . . → Read More: Alpha 850 – 24 megapixel 3fps in 900 body

Alpha 500, 550 and 850

Sony’s September launch for 2009 looks set to include three new models – the Alpha 500, 550 and 850.
