New Leica to NEX smart adapter by Phigmenttech.

Paul from Phigmenttech sent me this eMail to present the new Leica to NEX smart adapter you cna buy right now on phigmenttech’s site (Click here).

This adapter will modernize your Leica lenses with the following feathres:

Coded Lens Identification (fills in EXIF):
-Allow for Leica coded lenses to automatically send identification to the NEX camera. This means correct focal length and aperture range data in your EXIF.
-You are not limited to coded Leica lenses. You can use other M-mount lenses which will use a ‘default’ user selected setting for EXIF data.

Focus Coupling:
-This adapter will pick up the RF movement and send it to the NEX camera to auto invoke the focus assist; you can now free up one more button  for customization (if you were already using it for MF assist).

Peripheral illumination correction:
-I have provided a method for defining the level of vignetting correction. This is disabled by default, but it can be enabled.

Easy configuration:
-The adapter can easily be configured by the end user via a simple computer interface.
-Adjust default ID setting for non-coded lense
-Enable/disable focus assist engage
-Define lens properties (focal length and aperture range)
-Enable/disable ‘profiles’

Firmware Updatable:
-Firmware updates can easily be applied by the user without the need to mail it back

User manual and other details can be found at the product page: https://www.phigmenttech.ca/lmnex/index.php?page=product

Oh.. one thing to note. This is only available in Canada/USA at the moment until I raise enough funds to get CE testing done to allow sales in Europe.

Thanks Paul!

QX100 tear down and David Pogue’s take on The new York Times.

Sonyelectornics posted that video of a QX100 Lens Style Camera Teardown.

There is an interesting new review written by David Pogue on the New York Times site:

Sony’s concept for the new QX100 is among the most brilliant in its history. But the QX cameras’ execution just doesn’t live up to the ingenious idea behind them.

He lists many issues but most fo them can be solved via APP upgrade or with the next generation modules:

But listen: let’s not mope. Let’s celebrate the spirit of that spectacular central idea, the master engineers who brought it to life and even the executives who greenlighted this crazy, offbeat product. Let’s hope that spirit survives long enough for us to see a QX 2.0 next year.

In short…please SOny work on a decent APP update! This will solve half of the mentioned issues and tunr a half camera in a…decent camera :)

Here are all direct links to preorders in USA/Canada:
