On the video on top Steve Huff talks about the camera of the year, the Sony RX1.
Steve Huff picked up the RX1 as camera of the year 2012. And also posted the second part of his ongoing RX1 review. Too bad he compares it with cameras having small APS-C and MFT sensors. Can’t wait to see a comparison with the $7,000 Leica M!
Whatdigitalcamera posted the full Sony RX1 review. The camera got an impressive score of 92%: “With a superb build, excellent detail retention at low and high sensitivities and competent metering and auto white balance systems on hand, it’s unquestionably one of the finest digital cameras we’ve seen yet.”
SLRclub also posted the full RX1 review. I guess 99% of you will not be able to read Korean but you can still look at these nice pictures!
Pascal: “Hi Andrea,quick word to let you know there is a brief preview of the RX-1 on Dear Susans”
Olivier: “I’ve setup a new tumblr with the most beautiful Sony RX1 photos & videos. Maybe you want to share this with your fine audience?http://rx1files.tumblr.com“
Reminder: We told you last week that no new FF model form Sony will be announced within the next 8-10 months. It also means that we have to wait a bit before Sony will release an interchangeable FF mirrorless system. What I really like about the RX1 concept is the fact that the sensor-camera and lens have been designed to match perfectly. That (along the size) is what really intruiges me about this camera. But the price difference between the US and Europe really p… me off!
An anonymous source told us that Sony will release a new firmware update for the A77 in January. This rumor hasn’t been confirmed yet by any of my trusted sources. So keep your feet’s on ground. I hope to get a confirmation of the rumor soon. The source didn’t tell us what kind of improvements the fw update will bring. I guess…that I will let you guess
Reminder: For sure that by early 2013 Sony Japan will release a new firmware update that will add the support of the following lenses on the A99: SAL85f14Z, SAL135f18Z, SAL70300G, SAL70200G, SAL100f28 Makro.

Not clear: two new A-mount cameras in 2015, both with the A77II AF module. They should both be APS-C, or one of them an entry-level FF like the 6D. But Sony say they are not going to fill gaps... In any case, what is meant about the A77II successor in 2016? What are they planing […]
So I got my A7II two days ago and ran some tests. On high speed continuous it was virtually impossible to shoot just one frame, no matter how quickly I took my finger off the shutter button. I would almost always get at least two frames. Also the shutter seemed to depress quite a bit […]
A couple of months ago, after using a number of DSLR and mirroless systems, I decided to give Sony a try. I've been using an A7s for bit now, mostly with m-mount lenses, and while I love many things about the camera, the Memory Recall function seems to be crippled by the fact that it […]
