A99 tested for sportphotography at Focus Numerique.

Share


Sony A99 used my NG photographer Yamashita.

Focus Numerique (translation here) tested the sport-photography skills of the new Sony A99.In very short they found they where positively surprised by the AF and Video performance while the JPG quality above 3200 ISO may be a bit disappointing. They also didn’t not find an improvement on the A)9 EVF over the A77 although some readers do say quite the opposite like here at dpreview forum.

For the record, the A99 battery grip is now in Stock in Asia (here on Slidoo eBay). I guess it will arrive soon in EU and US too!

A99 in Stock status check at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Jessops, Wex UK, Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.

New A99 review. VG900 in Stock at BHphoto.

Today we have the two new FF cameras in Stock. The A99 at Amazon (Click here) and now even the new VG900 at BHphoto (Click here).

And there is a new A99 review at Whatdigitalcamera. And although the camera earns a relatively high overall score of 89% they have some complaints: “All of these issues mean the A99 ends up being a camera likely to be as embraced as it is disliked. Should the camera’s operational speed be remedied by a firmware update it will no doubt hold more appeal. As it is, it stands as a camera which delivers in some areas with aplomb, but falls down elsewhere where it matters.

At that point I have to say some kind words in favour of the A99. It really all depends from what you need. Pro Photographer Frank Doorhof wrote a very nice article about the A99 that really brings it to the point. The A99 has features that clearly differentiates it from the Nikon and Canon FF models. If those features are important for you than the A99 is absolutely the way to go! There is no camera that will help you to become a better photographer. There are only cameras that will suite you better for the needs you have.

More A99 bits: Rodkar is having a lot of fun with his new A99 and tested it a long list of A-mount lenses. Some more tests on vimeo, A99 vs A900 on dp forum.

Time: RX100 is under the 50 best inventions of the year!!!

.

The famous magazine “Time” selected the Sony RX100 as one of the fifty best inventions of the year! They write: “Digital cameras have been getting smaller and more capable every year, but that trend took a huge leap forward in 2012 with the Sony RX100, which bridges the gap between point-and-shoots and pro-quality digital SLRs. Sony’s innovative design and 1-in. (2.5 cm) sensor allow the camera to take flawless photos even though it’s 20% slimmer than your average digital SLR—small enough to fit in your pocket.

Yep, that’s exactly the reason why it is the best selling Sony camera for months now (popularity ranking here). Today Gariz also announced new RX100 letherette skins you can alreayd buy on eBay in Black (Click here) and Red (Click here). A new review has just been posted by Photographybay.

RX100 links roundup:
RX100 price search links: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
Cases: Official Sony LCJ-RXA case, Gariz case, more leather case.
Batteries: NP-BX1 Battery.
Special stuff: Multi-Coated LENS ARMOR UV. Magfilter at Amazon (Click here). RX100 filter adapter on eBay (Click here)
