Sony unveiled that new hotshoe-mountable LED battery light. As you can see from the video on top it’s actually a super nice gadget you can tilt and angle. There is a dimmer you can adjust from 10% up to 100% power (1800 LUX maximum at 5500 Kelvin). There is even a filter slot for the use of a 3200 conversion filter. The It weights 250g and is priced at $250. One moge thing: you can use AA and Sony V or M batteries, the same used for the A77. Can’t wait to use that LED light on my future A99 :)

One more…ehm lens adapter for NEX :)


via DC.watch

Neither DSLR/SLT users nor NEX camera owners could enjoy some real good news from the lens front at CES. We only had those two non spectacular Sigma lenses (with no offense to Sigma that can make some very superb lenses!). Now we have one more not so cool news :)

Kenko announced a new T to E mount adapter for the Tokina 400mm f/8.0 mirror lens (see picture on top). It’s an all silver edition. The adapter should be priced at $200. If you are really in the market for this I would rather go for the Sony 500mm f/8.0 mirror (Click here to see them on eBay) or the Sony 900mm f/8.0 mirror (Click here to see them on eBay). Those are A-mount lenses and you can use them with any current cheap Chinese adapter :)
