Sony RX100 IV vs Samsung Galaxy S6 – 4k Camera Comparison (Youtube).
Im Praxis-Check: Sony Cybershot DSC-RX10 II (Photoscala).

Maciej Galas:Professional production made entirely with Sony A7R with lenses by Carl Zeiss Sonnar 1.8 55 and Carl Zeiss Sonnar 2.8 35. The film is fun – the whole placement of products from high-end brands – including Calvin Klein, Rosenthal and many others. Black and white picture with high contrast achieved by the special function in A7R – creative styles – black and white high contrast. HD Format recorded in slow motion (50 frames per second). Camera Sony A7R was stabilized by the gimbal and slaider. Working on the set lasted 10 hours. The author is Maciej Galas – author of articles on Sony A7R and Carl Zeiss lenses.

Fernando:Hi, I found this page where recommend Sony A7S to make photo of Milky Way.
they say: “Some of the best performers of the last couple of years have been the Sony A7R, Nikon D810 and the absolutely brilliant Sony A7S, which is known for its amazing low light capability.”

Hugh:Thought your readers might get a kick out of this very short short we did for a client, shot on a Sony a6000. What’s really interesting is that you can see in the gear list how big my cameras were before downsizing to my new favorite camera — it’s sitting on a honking Cartoni Focus tripod with fluid head!

Joe:I would like to share a wedding video that Jeffrey, my teammate, shot on 2 weeks ago.  He used 3 cameras, RX100m4, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Canon XF300.  The majority footages are from RX100m4 with slow mode.

Je suis french…Je make you pay 1 million dollar for an E-mount adapter ;)


SAR reader Michel noticed that in his country the E-mount adapters are quite expensive :) The Tamron-NEX adapter is actually selling for 999.923 Euro or approximately $1,1 million on eBay (Click here). Must be a special adapter made by Gaultier or Yves Saint Laurent :)

P.S.: To all french readers, I seriously love France, part of my family lives there (Pyrénées-Orientales). So don’t mistake my making some fun on you for a sign of disrespect ;)

Youtube video shows a hacked(?) Sony A7s. Author claims to add internal 4K recording, higher bitrate, 4:2:2 10bit.


Nabil Fathi just posted a video showing what he claims to be a hacked Sony A7s! He writes:

This is just a teaser of upcoming hack similar to magic lantern that will be available for the Sony A7S, possible on the A7S II but not sure yet..Higher bitrate, better subsampling (HDMI 10bit 422), 4K recording, etc…

The video can be seen here:

I have no info yet if that is a “real” hack or if that’s just an APP with modified menu and no real new functions…So please take it with a BIG grain of salt! It would certainly be amazing to suddenly have such BIG new features on your Sony A7s. But we have no real proof yet that this is a real hack and if it really works.

Hicksfilm: Here’s a link to my latest BMX piece, shot on an a7s with 28-135 OSS F4 and rokinon 8mm 2.8 Fisheye.
All the slow-mo was shot on the RX-100IV at 240FPS and 120FPS. The full-res 120FPS on this tiny camera is truly spectacular for my uses.
