New RX1 image samples! And is the innovation of the year according to CEA.

Share

Consumer Electronics Association kicked off the countdown to CES 2013 with the announcement of the Best of Innovations Design and Engineering Award winners in New York City (via Cnet).

Our reader Andrej (Danke!) spotted new RX1 image samples posted by the Japanese website Itmedia (translation here). You cna find ISO 100, ISO 1250 images and basic bokeh test. Another Sony RX1 hands-on has been posted by the Vietnamese website Tinhte.

Shipment is estimated for December 6th in Japan according to Shamikon and December 14th in US according to BHphoto. It will ship in early November according to Sonystores in Europe. A bit weird that Sony France makes you pay 100 Euro more than other Sonystores (like Sony Germany).

The RX1 can be pre ordered at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Wex UK ,Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.
A99 body Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Jessops, Wex UK, Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.

How to save 100 pounds on the RX100.

SAR reader Paul sent me this mail to explain how you can save 100 pounds on the RX100 purchase in UK:
1) Go Into Jessops (Click here) where they’re advertised for £529.00
2) Say you’ll pay the internet price of £475.00 which they’ll have to match.
3) Buy Camera
4) Claim Sony’s £50 cash back (See Sony UK).
5) Get your RX100 for £425.00, save £104.00
Thanks Paul!

UPDATE: Kevin noticed that the price at Amazon UK is already selling it for 439 pounds. Probably they already include the cash back?

ByThom likes the Sony RX100: “Compared to other pocket cameras, it’s no contest. Cameras like the Canon S100 or the Olympus XZ-1 can’t match the output of the RX-100, in my opinion.

In Europe you can get many RX100 cameras for 500 Euro on eBay (via Slidoo / login to change country setting).

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)

Sony 16-50mm OSS lens review at ePhotozine.

Today ePhotozine posted the Sony 16-50mm OSS E-mount lens review. The size of the lens is amazing but does it deliver a good image quality? According to the reviewers: “At 16mm, sharpness is already excellent in the centre of the frame at maximum aperture. Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the clarity delivered towards the edges of the frame at maximum aperture for this focal length. Zooming to 28mm results in a slight drop in sharpness in the centre of the frame, but improvements are made towards the edges. Finally, at 50mm overall sharpness is reduced further, as is common with many zoom lenses.

The lens gets marked as “Recommended” while yesterday tested lens, the 35mm f/1.8 got the “Highly Recommended mark“.

$300 price savings on A77? (no replacement of the A77 coming)


In USA you can now get the A77 for $300 less than the normal price at BigValue eBay (Click here). And I am asking my readers if you had any positive (or negative) experience on your purchases. On eBay this is a Top rated seller but I can’t explain how they can sell stuff for $300 less than the official price on Amazon. I checked the single users feedback and all gave positive reviews. They also sell the body only for a very cheap price on BigValue eBay (Click here).

Imagine the day they will sell the A99 for $300 or $500 less than others! I have to know if we can trust them or not!

Some readers asked me if the recent A77 deals have to do with a possible replacement coming soon. The answer is easy…No. There is no replacement of the A77 coming any time soon.

Sony NEX-6 tested for video (not good enough for video says Behiri)

How does this make you feel?- Sony NEX-6 test from Johnnie Behiri on Vimeo.

The NEX-6 is a great camera but according to Johnnie Behiri: “Spending the day with the NEX-6 left me with a very clear opinion. If you are looking for a photo camera that can shoot video: look elsewhere!” The reasons are:

Severe Moire
Severe aliasing
No clean HDMI output
No mic input
REC button in occurred position (to my opinion).
Single region only (PAL or NTSC)

Another NEX-6 test at Nexforum Poland (translation here).

Sony NEX-6 in Stock status check: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.
