Sony TidBits…


Full-Frame filmmaking with Sony Artisan David McLain

Zeiss Touit test at Quesabesde.
Filming in Extreme Dry/Wet Places with the NEX-FS100 (Sony Blog).

Gaddiel:I share you this video I’ve made with my NEX 5n and 30 mm Macro Lens https://vimeo.com/69951428“”

Michael:I just started a blog with photo tips and tricks. If you want to reblog, feel free. I’m at http://michaelwoodphoto.wordpress.com.

Al:Hello, just wanted to share this documentary I shot – all on the NEX 7. With the original 18-200 e-mount zoom and a Rainbowimaging 37mm f1.7 lens. It’s a documentary about the creative process. Enjoy! https://vimeo.com/70354389

Terrance:I have been a Minolta /Sony user since 1975 and own 90% of all high end full frame cameras and lenses produced by them. One of the fun things that I do with my A850 and A900 and Zeiss lenses is light painting/sculpting at night. I have attached a 5 minute YouTube video documentary for you and your SAR friends to enjoy, the story and commentary is both serious and funny. Most of the images that you see are printed as 24” X 36” on canvas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoCekwLhgN0

Mattia:Hi Andrea! Just moved form Nex VG10 to a brilliant FS700! Hope you don’t mind if I post you my last video! https://vimeo.com/70465295

(SR3) New 55-150 f/2.8 G E-mount zoom to be released in September

I got info about a new E-Mount zoom lens. Sony could launch the new 55-150mm f/2.8 G zoom lens in September. it will be announced along the new NEX ASP-C cameras and the 16-xx mm zoom lens. This would be the first high quality and fast mid range zoom for the NEX system. I do not have info about the price but the lens will ship in October-November.

Do you consider to buy the new 55-150mm f/2.8 G lens?
