Slides from the Sony A7sII presentation!


The new Sony A7sII can now be preordered at Sony A7sII at Amazon, BHphoto, FocusCamera, Adorama and in Europe at WexUK. In Asia soon at Digitalrev.

Bruno from Lesnumeriques posted those slides from the official Sony A7sII presentation. There are a couple of interesting insights:

  1. The Large sensor video camera market is increasing (P.S.: larger than 2/3 inch sensor)
  2. In Europe most A7s buyers were professionals
  3. A7sII has 2 stops ISO advantage over the new A7rII

Still Planet5D has some doubts about the new A7sII: “The New Sony A7s II is Great, But Is It Awesome Enough To Get You To Upgrade?”.

Jean:Is this where people share sony related links with you? If so, here’s a little video I shot day after I got my RX100m4. Really enjoy this camera. All shot on RX100m4 in HFR 250fps and 4K 24fps. P.S. Youtube compression really kills the image quality in high motion areas (water…) Original is MUCH better.

Bernie Aniciete:Music NSFW. Quick video of a few choreographer friends dancing. Used the Sony NEX-6 and RX100ii.

Glitch in the BHphoto system reveals when your Batis lens lens preorder will ship…in 2099!


LOL! Destiny is making fun on the people who is patiently waiting since May(!) to get their Batis lens. For a couple of hours BHphoto changed the expected availability date to 2099! (Spotted at Reddit).
Fun aside there is some small good news to report. Early preorders from BHphoto and Adorama shipped last week according to multiple SAR readers. And there is one single lens in Stock now at eBay US. and at eBay Germany.

Diglloyd tested the 85mm Batis and writes:

It’s really wonderful to have such quality in a small and light kit. The design choice of f/1.8 is absolutely fine (I would even have preferred f/2, just to nudge up the quality slightly and nudge down the size). Particularly for this type of shooting, I’ll take f/1.8 any day over the bulk and weight of f/1.4.

Batis store links:
Zeiss Batis 85mm f/1.8 lens in US at Adorama, Bhphoto. In Eu at Amazon DE, WexUK. In Asia at Digitalrev.
Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2.0 lens at Adorama, Bhphoto. In EU at Amazon DE, WexUK. In Asia at Digitalrev.

That’s the coolest small vacuum cleaner for your Sony Camera!


If you want to suck out all the dust inside your camera than you really have to buy the new Fujin Mark II! The cleaner looks like a lens and comes in Canon EF or Nikon F-mount which you can easily use on a Sony via any adapter. You can buy it on eBay here (eBay Alex-Tokyo), here (eBay Alex-Tokyo) and here (eBay Alex-Tokyo Nikon version). And the Nikon mount version on Amazon (Click here).

PetaPixel epxlains how it works:

Inside the Fujin is a high-speed electric fan that produces 2.7 times more airflow than the first generation Fujin lens vacuum, changing the air inside your camera 6 times every second.There are special electrostatic filters that are designed to be inserted in the front of the lens. These attract the dust, dirt, and sand particles as they flow out of the camera chamber.

The Lens-vacuum-cleaner is powered by simple AAA batteries and there is a simple on off button on the lens to activate it. There are four videos posted by Fujin on Youtube to see how it works. More pictures below.

Order options:
Fujin mark II
cleaner on eBay Canon mount at Alex-Tokyo), Canon mount at and Nikon mount at Alex-Tokyo. Nikon mount version on Amazon (Click here).
Fujin mark I cleaner on eBay (multiple sellers).
