Hanna Saba:Check out my behind the scenes video of a pre wedding shoot using the NEW Sony 70200 f2.8 G Master. Filmed with the a6300 and sony 4k action

Juha:This video was shot mostly on Sony A7RII with 55mm f/1.8 and 35mm f/2.8 Sony Zeiss. A few shots were filmed on A7s with Sony Zeiss 24-70 f/4. It was entirely shot in S – Log 2 mostly at 60 fps some shots were filmed at 120 fps and scaled up. I edited it in Premiere CC and used D-Luts and Lumetri for Grading. It is really convenient using these type of compact but capable cameras for a shoot like this – it was all shot handheld. Our intention was to make a Music video which is more like a short film, as the music is a non album track and rather a sound collage.

Probably the best Black Friday Cyber Monday Zeiss deals for the EU (Zeiss Optics).

Sony A6500 in Stock at FocusCamera! And reviewed by CameraLabs.



The new Sony A6500 is in Stock for the first time in USA via Focuscamera (Click here) and eBay (Click here).

CameraLabs posted the full Sony A6500 review and the verdict is:

The built-in IS may not be quite as good as Olympus, but greatly improves composition, still shooting and movie filming with unstabilised lenses, and while the touch capabilities are under-used, you can at least tap to reposition the AF area or pull-focus while filming. While it’s the continuous autofocus and fast bursts that continue to set it apart from rivals, the upgrades have made it a much more compelling camera overall than its predecessor. Sony needs to do some work on its controls and user interface, not to mention updating some features that should be standard at this price, but they don’t hold it back from a recommended award.


Also the A99II was supposed to start shipping out today in USA via BHphoto, Adorama. Amazon. Let me know if your preorder is shipping out!
