Facial Recognition, new panorama, new brushes for graduated and radial filters, more slideshow options, HDR (high dynamic range), as well as significant speedups (up to 1000% faster!). Also the mobile APP of Lightroom got improved with segmented view, easier rating method, improved crop and copy and paste modus. Lightroom CC will be available as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography subscription ($9.99 per month) or as a standalone for $149.
A trusted source got news from Sony saying that they will display two new cameras on Thursday April 23. No E-mount. And if the Sony roadmap is still valid also no A-mount cameras. So this has to be the new RX stuff. RX100m4 and/or RX1X or maybe something else not “rumored” yet? I certainly would love to get a medium format Sony camera and you? I know, my dreams sometimes go too far…
Sony has a scheduled press briefing on Thursday April 23. And Wikileaks hinted that new RX and A7 and A6xxx cameras would be announced within April and June. So far this is what we can hope to get soon:
To be announced on April 23?
– RX1-X camera (specs unclear but likely a FF camera with 35mm f/1.8 Zeiss lens).
– RX100m4 (20MP Four Thirds sensor camera with 4K recording)
To be announced in May?
– A7rII (36Mp, 5 axis and same A7II body improvements)
– A6xxx (24MP APS-C sensor and 3 or 5 axis stabilization).
P.S.: A-mount news (camera and lenses) will follow in August/September?
By the way. Also the Sony Canada marketing roadmap seems to confirm there will be new cameras. Their RX (late April) and Alpha (mid May) campaign would match those announcements.
Jerry: “I have now owned both a Sony a7 and an a7II. One of the very few shortcomings, as noted in practically all reviews on these cameras though, is the fact that if you want to use its LCD finder on the back, and hold the camera down at waist level, which in many cases shades the camera’s eyepiece sensor heavily, the sensor within the EVF’s rubber hood thinks the camera is being held to your eye and turns the LCD completely off in favor of the EVF only. Of course, there’s the menu setting on the camera to set one or the other SOLELY, but this is a hassle when you need to switch back and forth frequently . I finally discovered a simple fix to remedy this very aggravating situation using a product called Light Dims, which are little inexpensive, stick-on pre-cot pieces of a neutral gray shading material actually made for putting over glaring, bright LED’s that are overly bright and irritate you at night or in dark places. By simply cutting a 3mm X 5mm piece of this material and applying it over the left half of the EVF sensor window, the sensor functions perfectly and the LCD remains on even in very low light, plus the EVF still switches on again automatically when the camera is held up to your eye! This is an incredibly simple fix that many Sony a7 users have wrestled with for months and have hoped and hoped that Sony would correct via a firmware update! It seems to work for all the Sony a7 models including the a7, a7R, a7II and a7S. These little gadgets are available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/LightDims-Original-Strength%C2%AE-Minimal-Packaging/dp/B00CLVEQCO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428490110&sr=8-1&keywords=lightdims) or directly from the company at: www.lightdims.com I am in no way affiliated with the company and have no vested interest. I just discovered this from another post on a Sony a7 forum, tried it and was super impressed.”
Hi all, I'm a Mirrorless NUBE and am very close to making the switch. Quick background, I was a sponsored climber and traveled 40+ countries rock climbing and mountaineering. This is before budgets for camera crews/person and social media. It was all up to me to grab photos and I'm not a pro. Over the […]
I am a total numpty!!! I have formatted the SD card in my A7rii before I downloaded my video files. I haven't used the camera after. Is there any chance of getting the content? It is a San Disk 64GB card and I tried the san disk download recover program in evaluation […]
I updated my firmware on my two A6000s to version 3.20 yesterday and today started having problems with both cameras. Camera 1 started showing internal temp warning and then shot down while recording video (I've never had that happen before). Camera 2 is glitchy and not showing video on external monitor that I have been […]
Good morning everyone! Just wondering your initial thoughts in regards of the use of the new a99ii for landscape photography... As the tech - specs looks similar to the a7rii in terms of dynamic range & resolution + some others, may you consider to move to this new camera, even knowing the A-mount […]
I recently purchase the Nissin i40 flash for my Sony A7Rii. I also purchased the Nissin Air Receiver and Air 1 Commander so I could do some OFF camera work. My readings said to bind the 2 requires the Commander and Receiver be updated to the latest levels. I sent both devices to the Nissin […]
