Sony a6000 Overview Tutorial by Tony Northrup

2.8/20 comparison review: Minolta MD vs Canon FD (SonyAlphaForum).
Mark Galer: Sony Alpha Ambassador (Youtube).
You can never have too many backups! (Planet Alpha).
Voigtlander Super Wide Heliar 15mm f/4.5 m39 version (SonyAlphaForum).
Sony A7II with FE 28-70mm kit announced in Japan (DC.watch).
What is in your bag (Newsshooter).
New B-grip line at Bgrip.
Caméra Sony PXW-FS7 : le test (Focus Numerique).

Vladislav:I shoot with sony (I’m a wildlife photographer) and I hate it with a new body comes out and all reviews are for portretry and general specs reviews, but nobody talks about how capable the camera for wildlife is. My channel just uploaded one review, that does exactly that, for the other wildlifers shooting with sony out there and I think there might be plenty of your readers interested in what I have to say. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9oTZ_sNgRc

Javier:I am one of those lucky enough to have the new Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f / 4G OSS, this video is made with the Sony A7s and Shogun atoms , there are also recorded with drone planes. I leave a picture of recording equipment. Is made in the Sierra Nevada National Park: https://vimeo.com/120843778

this image shows how the length changes when rotating the adapter.

With that kind of adapter it is possible to shorten the minimum focus distance of M-mount lenses just like the more expensive Voigtlander VM-E close focus adapter. The Shoten adapter costs $199 and is for sale on eBay (Click here).
