  • Alpha A-mount System • Re: Future of A mount June 18, 2019
    Yes some good prices around. More A99's then I would have expected, so it seems it might have sold pretty well - despite the high price at release. In most ways I'd be happy to run with A99's in the future - there are quirks and annoyances, as with all cameras. Importantly it unlocks all […]

Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

 

The A3000 is an E-mount camera which looks like an SLR but takes all your E-mount lenses and has a pretty good 20 megapixel sensor. It even has a metal lens mount. So what has been saved? You can now (2018) find these five-year old bodies for as little as £100. The saving . . . → Read More: Sony Alpha 3000 review by David Kilpatrick

Smoke and Mirrors – an idea for Sony

With the latest Alpha 77, Sony has introduced SLT version II, the new upgraded ‘Translucent’ mirror. This is in an attempt to reduce the ghosting effects created by having an angled mirror between the lens and sensor, the image forming rays passing through a semi-silvered (pellicle) surface, through a thickness of polymer film, and then . . . → Read More: Smoke and Mirrors – an idea for Sony

Four new Alphas – and two ‘translucent’

It’s a funny word to use, because the mirrors involved are transparent and not translucent (which implies passing light but not in an image-forming manner). Translucent means semi-opaque, letting light through in the way that an opal perspex sheet or Kodatrace foil does. Transparent means something you can see through.

But now, thanks to the . . . → Read More: Four new Alphas – and two ‘translucent’

CZ 24mm + 35mm and 85mm SAM lenses arrive

Nikon D5000 – HDvid, articulated screen

Nikon has announced a May 1st launch for a competitor to the Canon EOS 500D, in their D5000. This camera has the first articulated screen (only 230,000 pixels) to be designed by Nikon. See: //www.dphotoexpert.com/2009/04/14/nikon-d5000-live-view-hdv-articulated-screen/

Tilt-shift with full frame DSLRs

After just a short while working with full frame, high resolution DSLRs the need for tilt lenses has really come home to me. Most lenses deliver their best results at fairly wide apertures like f8, it’s easy for detail to begin to look soft and lacking impact if you are forced to stop down to . . . → Read More: Tilt-shift with full frame DSLRs

Which Sony Alpha?

Now that there are five Sony Alpha DSLR bodies in circulation, with many owners of the original 2006 Alpha 100 considering a replacement, the differences between this ur-Alpha and the 2007-8 generation of Alpha 700, 200, 300 and 350 need examining.

Eyepiece magnifiers for the Alpha DSLRs

The launch of the Alpha 350, with its small 0.74X viewfinder, makes a proper eyepiece magnifier attachment an essential addition to the Sony accessory range. Olympus, Nikon and Pentax all have such magnifiers, which permit a full view of the screen for most wearers and make all the difference to the manual focusing and general . . . → Read More: Eyepiece magnifiers for the Alpha DSLRs
