Write articles for SonyAlphaRumors!

Share

From late July until mid August I will be on vacation to my girlfriends family in France. But bad for me (and good for you) this will be a very busy rumor time with plenty of leaks to come. But between one rumor and another I will try to get some rest and enjoy some time with my family and friends by tasting the mysterious red drink the Frenchman call “vin” :)

And I thought it could be an idea to schedule some articles written by SAR readers so that they can be posted on SAR while I am lying under the sun. So you feel free to send me your articles you want to be posted here at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com. Please send full text and pictures and the credit you want me to add. You are obviously allowed to link back to your personal blog and it may help some of you to become famous :)

So what kind of article are welcome on SAR? First of all want I don’t need are reviews of cameras and lenses that are already well know and out for a long time. I am more interested in real field work narrations (travel stories, fashion photography, extreme conditions reportages). I also like to read curious and funny stories. Small tips and tricks reports are also welcome. In short, stories that usually don’t get posted on classic photography review sites :)

One more idea to save me time: Use DealsRunner.com to submit the SOny deals you find on web. Doing so displays the deals on the right sidebar on SAR and you will help other readers to see and grab the deal. It works without my moderation..instantaneously!

This may turn out to be a good deal for us, I can get some couple of hours per day offline and you can promote yourself. Thanks you!

(SR3) NEX-FF is the first E-mount camera with on sensor image stabilization?

Small update on the NEX-FF photocamera rumor:

Now we have three sources saying that Sony scheduled a big event for autumn. And the chance is high that we are talking about an official High Quality NEX-FF camera release. I am still working on the camera specs and first Zeiss lens info. What I also “heard” is that the first Sony NEX-FF photocamera will also feature an on sensor stabilization. This would be the first NEX camera featuring that. And honestly I dind’t think that IBIS would be possible on a FF E-mount. Anyway, while these rumors are coming from good sources I still advice you to keep feet on ground. We all need to see a clear evidence to be sure of the announcement. The best one would be an image of the camera….you have one to share? :)

Personal note: Terrific rumors to come :)

I know I am doing a mistake by writing that post…but what the heck! I am human and not a rational robot!

I am working all the day now and I can tell you that signs are huge that Sony prepared something terrific. This is the most exciting time I ever had on SAR. I strongly suggest you to follow me on Twitter (Click here) and Facebook fan page (Click here). It’s the place where I can express more tidbits and emotions about my work. Stay tuned on SAR. As usual I am trying to triple check the info I get otherwise you will kill me if that rumor turns out to be wrong :)

Juts one sentence: Neither Canon nor Nikon have this. And Leica is dead :)

(SR4) Two new Zeiss lenses coming along the new NEX-FF photocamera.

-

It’s only a matter of time until the  first NEX-FF photocamera will be announced. I should receive more bits about the exact announcement period soon. In the meantime I have been told by a trusted source that along the first NEX-FF camera you will see the announcement of two new Zeiss FulL Frame and E-mount lenses. One will be a zoom and the other one a prime lens. And important…everything will be expensive :(

The NEX-FF definitely has on sensor PDAF. I am now working to get full reliable specs but the chance is high we are talking about a very compact camera with 30+ Megapixel sensor. Stay tuned on SAR! More coming soon!

Specs of the Zeiss lenses are unknown but Zeiss has a great history of FF lenses made for the “Full Frame” ZM analog camera:
Distagon T* 2,8/15 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Distagon T* 4/18 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).
Biogon T* 2,8/21 ZM (Click here to see price on eBay).

Sony US extends SLT offer “while supplies last.”

-

Sony US is clearly trying to clear their Stock of SLT cameras. They just extended the SLT offer running at Amazon US (Click here)while supplies last“. New A-mount cameras are expected to hit the stores in very early 2014. It’s till unclear yet if the new A-mount cameras will be announced and available for preorder in autumn.

To sources and readers: I keep receiving rumors about many new cameras and lenses. Please excuse me if it takes time to post everything. I always try to at least double check the rumors to avoid major mistakes. The rumors I am working on are:

1) NEX-FF release date and lens specs
2) APS-C lens cameras and lenses
3) A77 mirrorless successor specs
4) A-mount Full Frame camera specs (two cameras!)
5) Hybrid A-E mount
6) New RX cameras

On all these fronts I got specs and info. But I learned from the past that some of them may not be correct (for different reasons). So be patient. I am doing my best every day now!

P.s.: particularly the NEX-FF rumors I am getting sound ground breaking!…and expensive :(
