Mariusc:Recently I took a trip to Tenerife and recorded a Slow Motion Travel Film that I’ve posted on my YouTube channel. I think it would be a nice thing to show the abilities of the camera to your audience. Here is the link to the film: https://youtu.be/bgMZspjuvO0

Sony 500mm $13,000 lens smashed on the floor!

Jon Devo smashed a $13,000 Sony 500m lens on the floor! His comment on Instagram is:

£12.5K worth of ouch. Not taking care when mounting large telephoto lenses can be a costly mistake. 🙈

I guess (and I hope) this lens was covered by his insurance. It’s also hard to replace this lens as you need to order it welll in advance and it will ship to you only within 1-2 months (Check at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, eBay).

This is the 500mm G lens on a Sony A99II:

Thanks to the anonymous source who sent me this!

Sony patented a Dual Pixel sensor similar to the Canon version

I just found that new Sony patent describing a sensor with Dual Pixel technology for Phase detection Autofocus. It sounds very similar to the tech used by Canon: cpn.canon-europe.com/content/education/technical/eos_70d_technology.do. The current Canon EOS-M series and a few DSLR have Dual Pixel sensor.

Having such a sensor would improve the autofocus tracking performance. But for now we don’t know if and when Sony will use that patented tech on a Sony camera.

Stan Moniz:https://vimeo.com/208192967 A weekend trip to witness the 2017 spring bloom in beautiful Borrego Springs, California. I had the new Sony RX100V handy and what not a better time to test out its 240fps video mode.
I have to admit this pocket of power has been quickly growning on me, making it one of those pieces of gear I can’t leave home without. I hope you enjoy the short video. Have a great week everyone! www.stanmoniz.com
