The Sony A7 camera series is back in Stock in almost all US and EU stores. I guess this means the Kumamoto negative impact on the camera shipments is almost over. Just recently Sony manager Kimio Maki told at Amateur Photographer:
“The situation is getting better. With regard to returning to normal, we’re expecting that this will be the case by the end of October.”
And Reuters reports another good news:
Ueda said combined monthly production would rise in the second half of this business year from 70,000 wafers at present to 73,000 wafers – full capacity at Sony’s five image sensor plants. The figure excludes outsourced production.
Newsshooter tested one of the new RX100m5 features that didn’t get on the screen radar of most reviewers:
One of the more interesting specifications of the new Sony RX100 V is that it can shoot still photos at full 20 megapixel resolution at a blistering 24 frames a second (fps). It can do this for around six seconds or so in either top quality JPEG or Raw at a resolution of 5472 x 3648 in 3:2 aspect, or 5472 x 3080 in 16×9. This raises the prospect that you could combine these photos in sequence to create a super high resolution/low compression video clip which should allow a high degree of image adjustment – albeit with no audio.
Teh caveat with this is that you can shoot 6sec only, you got no audio, the camera stops and needs a lot of time to write the data and in some situation it shoots at 17fps instead of 24fps. That said Newshhooter writes the overall resolution and detail of the images is really impressive though.

Apologies if this has been covered before. I've been trying to install Capture One Express on my PC. It downloads OK but won't install as it insists on having a 64 bit version of Windows - I have 32 bit Windows 10. Is there a 32 bit version? I wasn't given any options […]

I am looking for a short HDMI cable to go from the camera to my monitor.Ideally about a foot, with the large HDMI end bending 90 degrees like your hand bends, across the width. I don't really want a bend on the camera end. I've been looking on google, ebay, and amazon with no […]
