Debunking the next false rumor: Sony A95 in China.


Image of the fake A95 entry

I see there is some buzz on the web because the Chinese Site PConline added a Sony A95 camera into their database.

Just to be clear. That site always creates such fake entries to be promoted. It’s years now they are doing so. Sometimes they have been right on the camera names but just because they read rumors or because it’s easy to guess the name of a possible camera successor.

This is the future of photo editing? Adobe Lightroom for tablets!


9to5mac spotted that Adobe Lightroom mobile version on Adobe’s website. The reference has now been now by Adobe but the screenshots proves that it was there. Well, I guess the future of photo editing is on tablets rather than on “classic” computers/laptops…

Amazon France has lowest A7 and FE lens prices in Europe!


For unkown reasons French readers can enjoy the best prices in whole Europe(!) for the A7 and FE lenses . And this runs over Amazon France and not some unkown little store! In detail this is what you save there:
Over  200 Euro off on the A7 with 28-70mm lens (Click here).
Over 200 Euro off on the A7 body (Click here).
60 Euro off on the Zeiss zoom (Click here).
40 Euro off on the Zeiss 35mm FE (Click here).

I am not sure about it, but I think also non French citizen can buy at Amazon France…

(SR4) A77 successor has on sensor PDAF


Ok guys, I finally start to have a tiny bit more reliable info about the next A-mount cameras coming in Spring. I just have been told by one source (and confirmed via another one) the next Sony A77 successor is definitely coming and it will have on sensor PDAF. The big question they could not answer yet is if this means that the A79 (or whatever the name will be) comes with or without semitransparent mirror.

As you know Sony already patented such a camera (United States Patent Application 20130113982). I have been also told that Sony managers try to avoid answering any question about the future of the SLT tech. Let’s see if the A79 will be the first camera without that mirror in between…

P.S.: Save $300 on the VG-C77AM Vertical Grip with Sony A77 Digital SLR Purchase at Amazon US (Click here).
