Facial Recognition, new panorama, new brushes for graduated and radial filters, more slideshow options, HDR (high dynamic range), as well as significant speedups (up to 1000% faster!). Also the mobile APP of Lightroom got improved with segmented view, easier rating method, improved crop and copy and paste modus. Lightroom CC will be available as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography subscription ($9.99 per month) or as a standalone for $149.
Jerry: “I have now owned both a Sony a7 and an a7II. One of the very few shortcomings, as noted in practically all reviews on these cameras though, is the fact that if you want to use its LCD finder on the back, and hold the camera down at waist level, which in many cases shades the camera’s eyepiece sensor heavily, the sensor within the EVF’s rubber hood thinks the camera is being held to your eye and turns the LCD completely off in favor of the EVF only. Of course, there’s the menu setting on the camera to set one or the other SOLELY, but this is a hassle when you need to switch back and forth frequently . I finally discovered a simple fix to remedy this very aggravating situation using a product called Light Dims, which are little inexpensive, stick-on pre-cot pieces of a neutral gray shading material actually made for putting over glaring, bright LED’s that are overly bright and irritate you at night or in dark places. By simply cutting a 3mm X 5mm piece of this material and applying it over the left half of the EVF sensor window, the sensor functions perfectly and the LCD remains on even in very low light, plus the EVF still switches on again automatically when the camera is held up to your eye! This is an incredibly simple fix that many Sony a7 users have wrestled with for months and have hoped and hoped that Sony would correct via a firmware update! It seems to work for all the Sony a7 models including the a7, a7R, a7II and a7S. These little gadgets are available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/LightDims-Original-Strength%C2%AE-Minimal-Packaging/dp/B00CLVEQCO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428490110&sr=8-1&keywords=lightdims) or directly from the company at: www.lightdims.com I am in no way affiliated with the company and have no vested interest. I just discovered this from another post on a Sony a7 forum, tried it and was super impressed.”

It’s big rumor time and some of you reading the website may have “heard” some info they would like to share. There are two ways you can do it anonymously:
1) Use the “orange” contact form button you see on the right top of this site. You can avoid to share any info like name or email address and no IP info gets stored. If you like to become a “trusted” source just share a nickname so that I can recognize you in future. And if your rumor will become true I will know how to rank the rumors in future (SR1 til SR5).
2) You can send me an email directly at email@example.com. You can create a fake gmail account to write me. And I usually delete those emails after a couple of days just to keep a clean record.
Here is the contact form embedded for this occasion in this post:

As the title says. I don't know if this is normal but when I focus on something in AF-S mode, take my finger off the focus, move the camera it will change focus. I have the back focus on so it isn't on the shutter button. What I would like to do is […]
Hey, I'm looking at Sony for quite some time now and lately thinking about going into the system to replace my m43 system. My main concerns before I do that is weight of the body and lens. My main use of the camera is family photos, mainly of my little girl and the upcoming baby […]
Hi, I recently encountred this problem whereby when I click the shutter button and when the camera tries to focus in the viewfinder the image shakes and you can hear clicking noises as it tries to focus. The camera I use is a Sony A6000 and the lens is the SEL1670z. It only happen […]
Does anyone know if the A7II retains use of the full ev scale in the viewfinder when metering in manual mode? The A7II ev scale ranges from -5 to +5 but uses only -2 to +2 in manual mode. When a scene meters above or below that, -3 and +3 grays out and begins flashing. […]
