The Fotodiox Tough E-Mount

fittingnewmount

Machined from brass and chrome-plated, in the tradition of lens mounts from 50 years ago and not necessarily the best solution for precision or lifetime wear, Fotodiox’s TOUGH E-mount is a replacement body mount bayonet which you can fit to your existing A7R, A7, NEX-7, A6000 or any other metal-mount E-mount body in a few […] . . . → Read More: The Fotodiox Tough E-Mount

B&H double Zeiss Touit lens deal for NEX

touit2lenses

I guess that Zeiss must be working right now on full frame Touit lenses, because this is unprecedented value for those able to buy in dollars without steep shipping charges, duties or taxes – however, the links they emailed out today led to a wrong page on their USED section, and after a lot of […] . . . → Read More: B&H double Zeiss Touit lens deal for NEX

Sony A7 merges NEX and RX lines, RX10 revives classics

a7r-35mm

Although some of my information back in September was off-mark (writes David Kilpatrick), the post which I put up here was definitely right about the new A7 or rumoured ‘full frame NEX’ being based on the RX body design. I gather it was not the Alpha division, or the NEX division, which handed the prototype […] . . . → Read More: Sony A7 merges NEX and RX lines, RX10 revives classics

Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

SONY DSC

There’s not much really, in a different of just three tenths of an inch. There’s even less when the inch isn’t a proper inch, but the sort of inch used to express the size of sensors or display chips. Except, that is, when the difference is between 0.5 inch and 0.2 inch and you’re comparing […] . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

RX1 ‘NEX’ coming in October – 2 interchangeable lenses

SONY DSC

Reporting from Perpignan, one of our good friends in the biz was enjoying the usual wine and sunshine with photojournalists from a French agency (or two). Turns out that right now there’s an RX1 with interchangeable lenses, just what we asked for when the camera was first seen at photokina, roaming the night-time streets of […] . . . → Read More: RX1 ‘NEX’ coming in October – 2 interchangeable lenses

Alpha 3000 has NEX mount, 20 megapixel, APS-C

The long-rumoured Alpha 3000 was announced earlier in August but placed under a n embargo until August 27th. At the same time, the Press was given an insight into new smartphone related products (also widely rumoured) but again, not allowed to print anything officially. The A3000 is a DSLR-like body with an electronic 1.44MP viewfinder in […] . . . → Read More: Alpha 3000 has NEX mount, 20 megapixel, APS-C

New apps for NEX 5R and 6

Light Shaft and Motion Shot are two new apps for the NEX-5R and NEX-6 – one of which looks almost unacceptable (sure way to get your images disqualified from competitions, however much fun) and the other really innovative, bringing a motion clip function to the NEX range which it was lacking before. There is also a […] . . . → Read More: New apps for NEX 5R and 6

Sony firmware updates roll out

With new firmware for the Alpha 77 and 99 and most current models now up for download, the promised rush of new firmware is probably complete. The Alpha 77 firmware has errors in the web page for Europe, referring to the Alpha 57 and showing pictures of the 57. This is probably because the page […] . . . → Read More: Sony firmware updates roll out

20mm pancake for NEX from Sony

It’s not the fast f/2 design everyone was hoping for, but maybe the quality will be right – Sony has announced a new 20mm f/2.8 pancake lens for NEX. At the same time, the power zoom first seen at photokina, aimed at video NEX models, is available separately. Here is the release: Photographers and video makers are […] . . . → Read More: 20mm pancake for NEX from Sony
