Alex:so many people have been asking me how i do i tethered shoot in the studio with the sony A7r. Here is a link to a little tutorial i posted: http://www.alexk.com/sony-a7r-vs-canon-5dmkiii-can-sony-replace-the-canon-in-tethered-shooting-in-the-studio/

Louis:Hello! I just wanted to share a video I made while scuba diving with my RX100 in the Philippines last November. It’s still the Mark One of the RX100 but it still does amazing images! (I took it with the more affordable but really great Ikelite Housing and a red filter with no artificial light). Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HewhJDeyeo8

Tino:A6000 with Sony G 70-400 SSM ant Sony LA-EA2 testvideo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DheXlKq1HM

Hounsell:Andrea, from the video you can see that this was done with Sony Gear A99 & A7, nice to see these cameras performing well under tough conditions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBJyo0tgLnw

David:Hi, I thought you could be interested in share my last timelapse in your web. It is a flowers blooming timelapse, hope you like it https://vimeo.com/98276732

Josh:Just wanted to share a little project we did using an A6000 and an A7. Camera’s worked great and the small size was really handy for some of the work.

Luke:Here’s a quick travel video that I shot with it along with some photos with my A7r https://vimeo.com/100901015. I am very impressed that such a small camera can give such a good image. What I’d liked to find is to see if anyone has come up with a small 3 axis gimble for it yet?
I did kickstarter of on these Pop and Locks https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2120229387/the-pop-and-lock-a-folding-camera-support-built-fo which looks promising for a super-small travel stabilizer (can’t wait to get mine).

Canon and Sony lead the camera market in Japan (first 6 months of 2014).

BCN (found via Dicahub) posted the market share data for the camera sales in Japan during the first half of the current year. There is only the info about the market leader of each category (not info yet about the 2nd or 3rd place and so on). Here are the leaders:

fixed lens: canon (25.8%)
dslr: canon (56.9%)
mirrorless: sony (36.4%)
video camera: sony (39.8%)
photo frame: sony (38.2%)

As you know in Japan the Mirrorless market is just as big as the DSLR market. And it’s likely to growth faster than the DSLR market the coming years. So it may will happen one day: Sony surpassing Canon in the system camera world?
