    They probably don't have TVs. While relatively cheap to the industrial world, some people are still living on $5 a day.Reminds me a story I read of an American in Peru visiting an "Adult Entertainment" establish, and smoking a large cigar. The guard asked him about it and he offered him one. The guard asked […]

The promise of the SLT design, and Sony’s move away from flapping mirrors and optical prisms with their associated collimation and alignment, was one […] . . . → Read More: Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

David and Goliath? Nikon D4 dwarfs NEX-7!

Nikon D4 with 28-300mm VR, Sony NEX-7 with Tamron 18-200mm

Side by side on my light table (which collapses with a ‘pop’ when sixteen tons of Nikon is placed on it), and the NEX-7 is given the foreground role to avoid any accusations of using perspective to make it look tiddly.
