50mm for NEX gets reviewed at SLRgear. And Shadow Hot Shoe review


SLRgear (Click here) posted the full 50mm for NEX test: “The Sony E 50mm ƒ/1.8 OSS is a capable lens, marred only by some poor CA performance when used wide open; even then, depending on the subject matter, it may not be particularly noticeable.
Lens price check at AmazonAdoramaB&HJ&ReBay.

And I also found the first NEX 5n Shadow Hot Shoe Review at Cameradojo (Click here): “if you want to use speedlites or studio strobes with your NEX 5n, you really have no other choices today. In the end, the Shadow works and if you need the functionality, at least there is a solution available.

(UPDATED) The difference between Sony 36 Megapixel with and with modified AA filter

DxOmark (Click here) now posted the full results of the Nikon D800E which still has an anti aliasing filter but uses a second layer of the LPF to undo the effects of the first (Unlike the similar Nikon D800). As you know (and Nikon doesn’t tell you) both use the Sony 36 Megapixels sensor which will very likely used by a new Full Frame camera in 2013. Dxo writes: “The Nikon D800E received an overall DxOMark score of 96 points, making it the best camera ever tested at DxOMark. It edged out the D800 by a single point.

NEX-7 shoots Katherine Crockett!

:Katherine:Crockett:Prologue:Blue: from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

As you know our friend and professional fashion photographer Mike Kobal owns a Sony NEX-7. And he used that camera for a shooting with Katherine Crockett. She is the Martha Graham’s principal dancer! More about that here:
Ronmartblog posted the NEX-7 review: “My only real gripe about this camera are the annoying menu system and its lack of quick access to things like white balance and macro mode. I also hated that I didn’t have a zoomable live view like I would on a DSLR. If you are hell bent on going with a more compact alternative to a DSLR, then I think you’ll be happy with the Sony NEX-7.
Zelenpol announced some colored NEX-7 half cases. The Black version is already available on eBay (Click here).
NEX-7 price check at AmazonAdoramaB&HJ&ReBay.
