On the video on top Steve Huff talks about the camera of the year, the Sony RX1.
Steve Huff picked up the RX1 as camera of the year 2012. And also posted the second part of his ongoing RX1 review. Too bad he compares it with cameras having small APS-C and MFT sensors. Can’t wait to see a comparison with the $7,000 Leica M!
Whatdigitalcamera posted the full Sony RX1 review. The camera got an impressive score of 92%: “With a superb build, excellent detail retention at low and high sensitivities and competent metering and auto white balance systems on hand, it’s unquestionably one of the finest digital cameras we’ve seen yet.”
SLRclub also posted the full RX1 review. I guess 99% of you will not be able to read Korean but you can still look at these nice pictures!
Pascal: “Hi Andrea,quick word to let you know there is a brief preview of the RX-1 on Dear Susans”
Olivier: “I’ve setup a new tumblr with the most beautiful Sony RX1 photos & videos. Maybe you want to share this with your fine audience?http://rx1files.tumblr.com“
Reminder: We told you last week that no new FF model form Sony will be announced within the next 8-10 months. It also means that we have to wait a bit before Sony will release an interchangeable FF mirrorless system. What I really like about the RX1 concept is the fact that the sensor-camera and lens have been designed to match perfectly. That (along the size) is what really intruiges me about this camera. But the price difference between the US and Europe really p… me off!
An anonymous source told us that Sony will release a new firmware update for the A77 in January. This rumor hasn’t been confirmed yet by any of my trusted sources. So keep your feet’s on ground. I hope to get a confirmation of the rumor soon. The source didn’t tell us what kind of improvements the fw update will bring. I guess…that I will let you guess
Reminder: For sure that by early 2013 Sony Japan will release a new firmware update that will add the support of the following lenses on the A99: SAL85f14Z, SAL135f18Z, SAL70300G, SAL70200G, SAL100f28 Makro.

Hey guys, I just got the Sony SEL24240 lens mostly to use for fun to take pictures when I walk around. I took it with me on my walk yesterday and snapped pictures here and there, they can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/132260244@N08/sets/72157651558220096/ Those were all taken with my Sony A7s and the SEL24240.

A Google site search of Sony's US website shows that only 4 (RX1, A7r, A7 and A99) cameras are marketed with 14bit color. Some A mount users report they have true 14 bit color in the A99 and A77 cameras.I've never seen a raw digger on those files but if the files aren't […]
Well ever since I received the 24-240 FE the weather has just sucked! Finally it was a nice enough day well a beautiful day in fact to go for a walk and take some pictures. All the playing with targets and testing will only get you so far but for me what really counts is […]
Just got an A 7ii and noticed a soft clunking noise inside. If I hold the camera and give it a gentle shake (very gentle) it can be felt and heard. I thought it might be the battery but it's not. Also tried removing lens. Camera works fine but this is a bit disturbing. Normal?
