If you need to get a special “soap bubble” effect than this lens may be the right one for you! Meyer-Optik-Görlitz Trioplan announced that their Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 E-mount lens will ship in December for 1.400 Euro. It’s a lens made with the only purpose to create that kind of bubble effect. You can see some low resolution samples below. The lens is a new version of the already existing m42 mount 100mm Trioplan available on eBay (Click here).
These are the brand new rumors I got from two trusted sources. These kind of sources shared correct “rumors” in the past. But that’s yet not a guarantee the info here will be correct too. Here is what they told me: 1) New A6xxx will not replace the A6000 but be placed above it. The final name of the camera is yet not clear as it has a “working title” only. It could be named “A7000”. 2) The A6xxx was indeed scheduled to be released earlier in May. But it’s now scheduled to be announced around mid June. 3) The camera will ship in late June in Japan. July elsewhere.
So far five(!) trusted sources who contacted me told me that the new A6xxx camera is placed above the A6000. That’s good news! Now let’s just hope this is the real final announcement date rumor!
Sooner or later we are going to have large CMOS global shutter sensor on Sony Alpha cameras. This week Sony just announced smaller 2/3 and 1/1.8 inch CMOS global shutter sensors. The new Sony video on top shows the advantage of the global shutter over rolling shutter when recording fast moving objects.
Global Shutter Function
Industrial applications require imaging of fast-moving subjects. However, there is the issue that existing CMOS image sensors are unable to accurately identify fast-moving subjects due to focal plane distortion as a result of rolling shutter operation. The IMX250LLR/LQR and IMX252LLR/LQR address this issue by providing analog memory inside each pixel and realizing a global shutter function, which enables high-picture-quality imaging without focal plane distortion.
The Industry’s Smallest Pixel Size Class for Industrial Applications
Analog memory, transistors and other elements must be added to the inside of each pixel to realize a global shutter function, which made it a challenge to reduce the pixel size. The newly developed products use Sony’s fine pixel fabrication technology to realize a small pixel with a size of 3.45 µm compared to the 5 µm range that is the existing standard for global shutter pixels.
This enables high-resolution imaging using a smaller lens than that of the existing products.
In order to reduce the size of pixels equipped with a global shutter function, it is necessary to secure a sufficient pixel light-detecting area while also securing an analog memory area within the pixel, so there were concerns over a drop in sensitivity.
However, high-sensitivity pixel design technology and condensing process technology were used to increase the sensitivity of the newly developed 3.45 µm pixel, and realized high sensitivity exceeding that of the existing 5.86 µm product (1.1 times compared to the existing 5.86 µm product).
In addition, EXview HAD CCD*1 technology also increases sensitivity in the near-infrared range, enabling use with high picture quality even under near infrared light.

High Frame Rate
Customers have strongly demanded higher frame rates for industrial applications, so an ADC 8-bit mode was added to the IMX250LLR/LQR and IMX252LLR/LQR in addition to the existing ADC 10-bit and 12-bit modes. Also, the column-parallel A/D conversion technology of Sony CMOS image sensors is used to realize high-speed imaging of up to 163.4 [frame/s] (ADC 8-bit) for the IMX250LLR/LQR and up to 216.3 [frame/s] (ADC 8-bit) for the IMX252LLR/LQR (Table-3). This enabled further increasing the processing speed for industrial applications.
A Variety of Functions
The IMX250LLR/LQR and IMX252LLR/LQR are equipped with a variety of functions needed for industrial applications, such as ROI mode and trigger mode. ROI mode crops arbitrary areas, and up to 8 × 8 = 64 locations can be set. Various exposure methods are provided for trigger mode, which controls the exposure time using an external pulse. In addition, the IMX250LQR and IMX252LQR (color products) are equipped with functions such as subsampling, horizontal and/or vertical inverted readout, and multiple frame set output, and the IMX250LLR and IMX252LLR (monochrome products) also have a pixel addition function in addition to color product functions.
I just recently bought a Sony Zeiss 35mm f1.4. Yes it big and heavy but I got work to pay for me buying a used one. Every time I power on the camera (A7ii), it sounds like a motor expanding and then relaxing the aperture. Is this normal? Other than that, it works just fine […]
I shot pictures in arw format with my recently bought Sony Alpha 6000. Then I converted them with or without Adobe Camera Raw settings, into jpg, but in either case the results were baffling: - loss of quality and detail in shadows and highlights - lens correction applied whether or not it was added in […]
You can easily spend a fortune on lenses for your Sony a7 series camera but you don’t have to. On our blog we review many lenses, from cheap soviet era one to the newest an most expensive Zeiss glass. For this list we have selected 34 lenses all cost less than $499 and give you great […]
Hi guys, I have an A7rii and am looking for a second unit. I also have the FA-WRC1M wireless commander and receivers which work well enough. I know that the A6000 isn't compatible with this system, and the A6500 is, but is the A6300? Cheers Greg
