New A99 video roundup!


Sony A99 Iceland Expedition from Enrique Pacheco on Vimeo.

Enrique Pacheco shot this great video with the A99. You can also read his story with the A99 on his blog: “After more than two weeks of winter expedition in the south of Iceland, photographing, filming and time-lapsing all kind of landscapes and situations under harsh weather conditions, I can say that the Sony A99 has performed as a truly professional camera, offering all its potential at the highest level without any problem. What more can you ask a camera today?

And here is an interview with Charles Michel und Giorgio Balmelli about the A99:

Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 lens production increased. And $60 price drop in US!

Fifteen months ago Sony announced that nice Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 but Sony never managed to produce enough lenses to fulfil the demand. According to top sources Sony finally found a way to increase the lens production and it’s expected to ship in large amount to EU and US stores in a  few weeks. And destiny wants that today we had the very first price drop on that lens too! Sony authorized retailed Beachcamera is selling the lens with a $60 discount at Amazon (Click here) and on eBay (Click to check it out).

In Europe the lowest price I found was at Wex Germany (Click here). No real price drop in EU for now :(

To get notified on eBay price drops on that lens login, set your country and save this search on Slidoo.

Sony RX1 shipping in Germany!

Adrian from Germany just got his Sony RX1 via! You see it on the pic on top and on background you see the SAR website :) I guess other European stores are shipping it too: Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH.

Lloyd Chambers complains about the real final RX1 price: “The RX1 is a super premium camera, but it ought to be $2999 with all the accessories below except perhaps the EVF (which ought to be built-in)— upping profit margins by charging for all the stuff any serious shooter needs is a game I don’t like to see played, not to the tune of ~$1000.

So here are my savings proposal: Lloyd, you can save $170 by simply purchasing the $7 cheap chinese metal hood (there is one here on eBay). And we may save other $150 the day some Chinese company will do an alternative thumb like we have for the Leica M cameras (they are here on eBay). That would make a total of $320 savings (if the cheap thumb accessory will be released soon).

More RX1 bits: New image samples have been posted at Focus Numerique and WhatDigitalCamera. New Sony RX1 Photo Plus Expo 2012 presentation on youtube.

Preorders: Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Wex UK ,Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.

NEX-6 sensor tested at DxOmark. Same quality as the NEX-5r/n.

DxOmark (Click here) published the full NEX-6 sensor test and it’s probably even not worth it to click on the link to read their article :)
This because the NEX-6 has exactly the same performance of the NEX-5r and the NEX-5n.

And here are two more NEX reviews: NEX-6 at Camerahoarders and NEX-5r at Photographyblog. And two NEX-6 demo ktis are for sale on eBay US (via Slidoo).
