A99 tested for sportphotography at Focus Numerique.


Sony A99 used my NG photographer Yamashita.

Focus Numerique (translation here) tested the sport-photography skills of the new Sony A99.In very short they found they where positively surprised by the AF and Video performance while the JPG quality above 3200 ISO may be a bit disappointing. They also didn’t not find an improvement on the A)9 EVF over the A77 although some readers do say quite the opposite like here at dpreview forum.

For the record, the A99 battery grip is now in Stock in Asia (here on Slidoo eBay). I guess it will arrive soon in EU and US too!

New A99 review. VG900 in Stock at BHphoto.

Today we have the two new FF cameras in Stock. The A99 at Amazon (Click here) and now even the new VG900 at BHphoto (Click here).

And there is a new A99 review at Whatdigitalcamera. And although the camera earns a relatively high overall score of 89% they have some complaints: “All of these issues mean the A99 ends up being a camera likely to be as embraced as it is disliked. Should the camera’s operational speed be remedied by a firmware update it will no doubt hold more appeal. As it is, it stands as a camera which delivers in some areas with aplomb, but falls down elsewhere where it matters.

At that point I have to say some kind words in favour of the A99. It really all depends from what you need. Pro Photographer Frank Doorhof wrote a very nice article about the A99 that really brings it to the point. The A99 has features that clearly differentiates it from the Nikon and Canon FF models. If those features are important for you than the A99 is absolutely the way to go! There is no camera that will help you to become a better photographer. There are only cameras that will suite you better for the needs you have.

More A99 bits: Rodkar is having a lot of fun with his new A99 and tested it a long list of A-mount lenses. Some more tests on vimeo, A99 vs A900 on dp forum.

Engadget loves the new NEX-5R (and me too).

Engadget (Click here) posted the full Sony NEX-5R review and I agree with their conclusions when they write: “Picture and video quality, even at higher ISO settings, was stellar. The camera’s exposure was typically spot-on, and we never found a need to venture beyond the automatic white balance setting, with each shoot yielding accurate results. We’ve had some issues with past NEX models when shooting in tungsten or vapor light, but we were quite pleased with the images here.

Like any other company sometimes Sony makes bad products and sometimes Sony makes very good products. And few of you will disagree when I say that the NEX-5R falls in the latter category. When it comes down to analyze the features you get for the price you can hardly find any other mirrorless camera that can match it!

Along the RX100 this is my favorite camera of the year. And for you?

New Sony NEX-6 tests and Micahel Yamashita work.

I guess you all remember photographer Michael Yamashita. He is the one that leaked the A99 in first place :) Sony Japan (Click here) now shows a dedicated online page where you can see his work with the A99 and NEX-6 cameras. It’s in Japanese only but pictures to tell more than thousand words…so they say. (Thanks Vadim for the link!).

Fengniao (translation here) posted a new NEX-6 test that includes a NEX-6 vs NEX-7 comparison:
ISO 3200: NEX-6 vs NEX-7
ISO 6400: NEX-6 vs NEX-7
ISO 12800: NEX-6 vs NEX-7

The new NEX-6 is shipping in many paces in Europe: Jessops UK, Redcoon Germany, Amazon Germany, Fotoversand Germany (ships to EU), Allmedia Germany (ships to EU), Asdiscount France.

And through our new website Slidoo you can live check the NEX-6 offers on eBay US/Canada (Click here), eBay Europe (Click here) and eBay Asia (Click here).
