Marketing fail? Worldcup photographer wear Sony 4K vest but do shoot with Canon :)

Share

Sony is one of the big sponsor at the Football World Cup in Brazil. Even photographer are “forced” to wear Sony 4K advertising vests. But as you can see from the 360 degree pics posted at Visualise.com not a single of them shoots with a Sony. It’s all about Canon (and few Nikon). Let’s hope Sony will mae a real Alpha Full Frame Sports camera that will convince some of them to switch over to Sony!

Thanks Marald for finding and sharing the pics!

Big Adobe announcement day (wtih small surprises).

Share

Adobe launched a series of new products and updates. Here is the list:

1) And Update of CC with new Focus masks feature (adobe.com/products/photoshop.html)
2) Photoshop Mix for iPad (itunes.apple.com/us/app/adobe-photoshop-mix-creative/id885271158).
3) Lightroom and Photoshop CC for $9,99 monthly sub (creative.adobe.com/plans/offer/photoshop+lightroom).
4) And Lightroom mobile. (adobe.com/products/lightroom-mobile.html)

Nothing really groundbreaking. Still hope they will get rid of that monthly subscription fee. It’s the one big thing that annoys me most :(

(SR3) New 24-105mm kit lens to be announced along the A99II.

Share

Image on tops shows the Sigma 24-105mm A-mount lens.

A source told me that Sony is likely going to launch a new 24-105mm f/4.0 G lens along the new A99II. I have no other info about the lens specs and price yet. But let’s hope it will beat the already good Sigma 24-105mm f/4.0 lens performance.
