  • Alpha E-Mount system • Re: I am trying out the A6300 January 27, 2021
    I'll update things when I have had more time to use it, and what I think of it. Just in case anyone is contemplating trying one outI would say, if Canon come out with something a bit more on the ball aka RP price level, with IBIS and a better sensor - that would probably […]

  • Alpha A-mount System • Back to the Fold January 26, 2021
    I could not resist a small return to A mount, after being disillusioned with Sony I went down the Micro 4/3 route Panasonic in fact and still love the system for various reasons I saw a A58 with under 1000 actuations in mint condition at my local photo shop, only £155, then I decided to […]

  • Alpha E-Mount system • I am trying out the A6300 January 24, 2021
    I found a deal in Austria for the A6300 body.

Sony is ready to launch a GPS module

Sony can make GPS work. They pioneered it in the A55, refined it in the A77, A65 and A99 – and abandoned it without a word in all later A-mount cameras and the entire E-mount series. But they prepped the Multi Function Accessory Shoe to be used with a GPS module – and I believe . . . → Read More: Sony is ready to launch a GPS module

NEX-5 live sound

I’ve been using the NEX-5 with accessory mic – and sometimes, by forgetting to bring it, without. Today we had the Ripon City Morris side in town, and I was taking still shots using the Nikon D3X with the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 AF-S G lens. The NEX was grabbed as an afterthought for video.

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
