Sony A7x cameras used to follow Justin Bieber, Pitbull cover and the Struts.

Christoph sent me this:
Justin Biebers music video “I’ll show you” was shot with a Sony A7 series camera.
Even if I’m not the biggest Justin Bieber fan… as the video was filmed in Iceland there are some beautiful landscape shots.
some making of shots:

And Zeiss Artisan Greg Waterman is on a full US tour with the Struts, shooting the music video for “Kiss This” with a Sony a7S2 and the Zeiss Batis lenses. They’re in NYC next week at Seth Meyers, and they’re the opening band for Motley Crüe’s last concert ever, on New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles.

Sony A68 finally “announced” in USA too


BH Explora finally informed us that the new Sony A68 is going to be sold in USA too. But there is also a caveat: Preorders will be available on March 1 2016 only according to BHphoto (Click here). I do hope if the A99 successor is really coming that we wont have to wait that much to get it in our hands.

Bildschirmfoto 2015-12-17 um 09.20.27

Sony Japan announced that it will postpone the RX1RII shipment start in Japan. And I got word from US and other Asian stores that also they will have to wait to get a new Stock of RX1rII cameras. The reason for the stop is unknown. And Sony also does not tell when they will resume sales.

UPDATE: An anonymous source (thanks!) told me: “The production of the RX1R2 is halted because of AF inconsistencies

US stores also do not show the RX1RII in Stock anymore (Amazon US, Bhphoto and Adorama).
