A first great video shot with the RX1!


Just watch! Looks good or not? And if you want to see how the RX1 compares against the best Nikon FF cameras watch out that first test on dpreview forum. While this may not be a 100% professional test I have some high expectations on the RX1 now. Hope to see some review soon!

Sony TidBits…

So Long, My Hong Kong from Gregory Kane on Vimeo. Found via Fotovideo.nu.

Russian multitest inlcuding the RX100 at Podakuni.
Sony A57 test at Techhive.
Getting started with APP on your NEX (SonyAlphaLab).
NEX-6 pics at Shawnliustudio.
New Sony import plugin for XAVC media into Final Cut Pro X spotted at tradeshow (Fcp).
A99 pic samples by SAR reader Mike on Flickr and by Amitzi.
Techart EF-to-Nex AF adapter (Picasa).
Going for a walk in Paris with the Sony RX100 (Mike Kobal).

Anonymous:Not a rumour.  Just to say that I have just received my Techart E mount to EF mount adapter, and that it works (autofocus, aperture and IS where applicable) with all my Canon and Sigma lenses, but none of my (few) Tamron and Tokina lenses.
Working – Canon 15-85, 50/1.4, 85/1.8, 17-40, 200/2.8, 24-105 and 70-300L; Sigma 8-16, 15/2.8, 50/1.4*, 300/2.8.
Not Working Tamron 28-75/2.8, 15-50/2.8; Tokina 12-24.
*Note that teh Sigma 50mm f1.4 works even though the Techart advert says it does not!
I’ve only used it on a NEX C3, and the focus is fairly slow.  I’ve not timed it, but it does not appear to be any slower than the same lenses on a Canon 650D (which is presumably the same as the Canon M).  I’ve ordered a NEX 6 but have not got it yet.  Hopefully the autofocus will be a lot quicker. Will update you with more results when it arrives.

Teddy:I am not sure if A77 cinema footage would be of interest for SAR reader. Here are all my work using A77 and Nex5n.

I just move from GH1 to A77 and considering A77. Hope my cinema would be helpful for SAR readers who are interested in Sony DSLR.

Sony A99 and 24-70mm kit coming?

Digicaminfo found that picture showing a brand new A99 with 24-70mm lens package. The mark clearly says A99 and “SAL2470Z” which stays for the 24-70mm f/2.8 Zeiss. The good news here is that we can expect to save some bucks on that combo. There are already some A99 and 24-70mm combos for sale on eBay (Click here) but these are two separated packages and you don’t save a penny on them.

UPDATE: As noticed by our reader JVS the package is sold by Sony Australia!

A99 store links at Amazon, Adorama, BHphoto, Jessops, Wex UK, Wex Germany, Sonystore DE-UK-FR-IT-ES-NL-SE-FI-CH and more links at Alphacameradeals.
