Niklas: “I saw that you posted some videos and just wanted to share a video I shot entirely on the RX10 compact camera. t’s a great camera and I just wanted to prove that you don’t need an a7s to get a cinematic look. https://vimeo.com/98879187. Swedish midsummer in the archipelago, shot entirely on the rx10, enjoy.“
Anonymous: “This wasnt reported at the time but there was an interview at dc home a few months ago which i think would be an interesting discussion. In the interview the interviewer asked about the A77II AF module in the LA-EA6. The Sony engineer says the size of the module is a problem for an adapter. It would be an interesting discussion around would the readers accept a larger bump in the LA-EA4 to get better AF?
Translated: –The mount adapter equipped with translucent mirror technology isn’t made denial, but I think I’m incapable to use 15 point AF sensor of LA-EA4 by full-sized α as expected. I think thing asking I don’t have is understood sufficiently, but there should be LA-EA6 α 77 II treated to 79 AF sensors (temporary)…,….
Hosokawa: The size of the AF module also becomes big to achieve a wide AF area.
It’s a problem whether it’s put in the size which can permit that as a mount adapter and after all whether the usual type phase contrast AF system by translucent mirror technology is a good one or, is a system using image face phase contrast AF good? The place where I’d like to reduce what kind of merit there is to a customer and think as technological directionality.
Japanese Text: ――トランスルーセントミラー・テクノロジーを搭載したマウントアダプターを否定はしませんが、やはりLA-EA4の15点AFセンサーは、フルサイズのαで使うには力不足だと思います。ないものねだりは十分承知していますが、α77 IIの79点AFセンサーを奢ったLA-EA6（仮）があればいいな、と思うのですが……。
The Zeiss name gets displayed at camera startup on the white PMOLED
The new Zeiss Batis FE lenses are the worldwide first lenses with a white PMOLED screen on it. If you ever wondered what the heck a “Pmoled” is here comes the explanation:
Normal OLED TV’s use active-matrix addressing schemes because it allows for higher resolution and larger display sizes. But the new Zeiss Batis lenses have white PMOLED screens that use Passive matrix addressing just like ePaper Tablets (read Amazon Kindle). It means they offer an increased brightness and clarity in direct sunlight. This means you don’t have to worry that you might not read the screen in daylight!
Ivar: “I stumbled on a video of magnum photographer and legend Eli Reed on a promotional video for South Korea photographing with Sony A7 series camera’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6-r9ZJzO4s. There are more Magnum legend promoting South Korea but he is the first I see with Sony. It’s great to learn from the pro’s. Have fun”
Samys: “Sony expands the ability to test drive and use their equipment at an upcoming shooting event at a local Malibu Vineyard with Samy’s Camera in Los Angeles on May 17th. A Sony Artisan will be in attendance to provide guidance and assistance to achieve the best image results. With the recent introduction of additional new full frame lenses the a7 series cameras will continue to gain momentum and be the choice over traditional DSLR’s. The web link to participate in this shooting event is below. http://samysphotoschool.com/courses/malibu-wines-landscape-photography-workshop/ Malibu Wines Landscape Photography Workshop May 17, 3:00 pm – 8:30 pm Hosted by Samys Photo School & Sony.“
Hello everyone, I have a canon 7d with optics f. I would love to buy a A7s, but I have great doubts especially adapters for my lenses. I read a bit everywhere that have always problems, even with the more expensive ones. I own Zeiss optics and sigma with EF attack and that scares me […]
A thread over on dpreview.com influenced Jim Kasson to do an impromptu test with the 55mm Otus up against the 55mm 1.8FE Zony. The results were as expected, with the subjectivity of "comparable" up for debate. This lead Jim to doing a pretty interesting test to determine if he could completely eliminate shutter shock issues […]
I've got an A7ii and I'm looking at the Peak Design Capture Clip Pro. For anyone using this, do you have any issues with the pro plate interfering with the battery door or sticking out the front and back and possibly interfering with the screen? There's an older micro plate, is this necessary? Thoughts?
Hi all! I'm new to this forum, and new to shooting with Sony cameras. I bought the A7m2 with a kit lens a while ago, and i've bought adapters for all my older Minolta MC/MD lenses - and i've also bought a few other manual/legacy lenses for use on this system. Since I bought the […]
Will Sony introduce a new successor to the HX400/V in the next 2 months?
