This isn’t really a surprise…The RX100 is the Compact Camera of the Year 2012 at Photographyblog. And I guess quite many here on SAR bought that little jewel. One more thing: In these days I also got a weird rumors from an unknown source saying that Sony would launch a new RX100 model. Let me know if you got something about it.
While Sony does’t plan to release any new FF SLT this year they will introduce 2-3 new APS-C SLT cameras. And three of my sources told me that it is Sony’s goal to launch a new A77 successor the second half of the year. I have no info about the exact specs now but while I am working to find them you may express your wishes by commenting this post. Let’s see if at least some of them may come true!n
As you know MXcamera will sell the new Contax G to Sony E-mount adapter starting from February. The “special” feature is that it supports full auto aperture and auto focus control. Only the 16mm and 21mm Contax G lenses will not be compatible on a NEX camera. Anyway, the news today is that there are two more videos published by the store selling those adapters, MXcamera. One video you can watch on top and the second video can be found here on youtube. Yep, looks like the af works
According to one source the next new NEX camera will be the NEX-F3 replacement. And it will be named NEX-3N. There is no info yet about the specs. If other sources can confirm and add some more bits on the rumors feel free to contact me at email@example.com (or use the anonymous contact form that is on the right border of the website).
One more thing: The big CP+ show starts on January 31st. I expect some new Sony stuff to be announced by than!
I just purchased this lens used, and it randomly started making an abnormal sound. It doesn't consistently do this, and will stop if I turn the camera off and then turn it back on. I haven't been able to find out any information about why this might be happening Watch the first 15 seconds of […]
I recently (and excitedly) upgraded from my trusty a57 to an a77 mkii. I have been using the a77 mkii for around 3 weeks now and have spent a very long time (and lots of shots!) trying to set this af micro adjustment up to obtain sharp in-focus shots, but the af sensor seems to […]
I emailed Sony support. I am looking for a USB powered battery charger. The camera can charge batteries using a USB cable but I would like an external charger powered in the same way. It would be like a wall charger, but instead of it being mainspowered, it would be powered by a USB source. […]

Hello All, I purchased a Sigma 18-35MM Art Lens for my wife's Sony A77. I noticed that the lens isn't recognized, and I am receiving the Check Lens error. I had bought it used and returned it online purchasing a brand new one from Sigma. The new lens has the exact same symptoms!! […]
