Ultra-sensitive Sony A7S gets better denoising with DxO Optics Pro; RX100 III and more also supported (Imaging Resource).
Sony RX100 III Shooter’s Report II: A change of scenery in coastal Virginia (Imaging Resource).
RX100MK3 review at Pantip.
Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 FE review at Kolencheung.

Ashley:If you were looking for some content to post on your page, there are a couple Sony a7 specific tutorial videos we posted a short time ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zX2G5TxyHfo. This one will compare the process and end result of the in camera panoramic mode to a hand stitched panoramic.  It also shows who simple the process is for the Sony a7 versus going through Photoshop and putting the panoramic together.
This video will show how to setup the time lapse application available on the NEX cameras, as well as showing some time lapse examples made from the a7 and the application: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgMhc-ROdqQ

Rick:I’d like to sure my Sydney at Night Timelapse that I shot on my Sony a7 Camera: https://vimeo.com/99819448
