NEX-C3 and A35 manuals online (but password protected)

The error message that appears when you try to login. Nice to see Sony uses Ubuntu servers ;)

UPDATE: A SAR reader found the links (???) to the official NEX-C3 and SLT-A35 manuals written by To bad that you need username and password to login. Without them I can’t login and see if those manuals are real :(


Thanks A.A.

Sony A33 and NEX-3 review, Capture One 6.2 test with A55 and NEX-5.

Digitalcamerainfo (Click here) tested the Sony A33: “The Sony Alpha SLT-A33 did not blow us away in any specific area, but the camera did a passable job in all of our tests. If you’re overly concerned about image performance, then there are plenty of other cameras that will please you more than the A33 (like the Sony A55V). But, we found the A33 to be a handy shooter with a good set of controls, an intuitive menu system, and some fun features to boot.
Chekc the A33 price at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

Phase One released the new Capture One 6.2 which adds the support for the Sony SLT and NEX cameras. And Alpha Numerique tested the new software with the Sony A55 and NEX-5. The reuslt is that Lightroom is still better at High-ISO handling but Phase One is a very good tool for studio and landscape photography. (Click here) tested the NEX-3: “The Sony Nex-3 is not a cheap option, but it is a quality option. You can pick up the majority of features this camera has with an entry level Digital SLR and pay less if you prefer to. The main attractions are its picture quality and a portability that a Digital SLR simply cannot match. Overall The Nex-3 is an impressive camera.
Check the NEX-3 price at Amazon, B&H, Adorama, J&R, eBay.

How the peaking modus works (coming with the new NEX firmware)

Two days ago we leaked the new NEX firmware upgrade manual. One of the new features is the new peaking feedback system. To see how it works check this Sony H5 review at Dpreview (Click here): “The blue areas show peaks of contrast (as used by the autofocus system), giving clear, obvious feedback about which areas will be captured sharply.

What I don’t know yet is when Sony will announce the new firmware (and also the new NEX-C3). If you know something feel free to share it by dropping (anonymously) a message using the contact form on the right sidebar. Thanks!

Conurus is developing an EOS to NEX electronic adapter?

Conurus left a very interesting message on the Cameralbas forum: “We are developing an electronic adapter which interfaces a Canon EF lens to a Sony NEX body. You just set the aperture on the Sony NEX body and shoot (or let the camera decide in Program or Shutter Priority modes). We have already built a successful prototype and is in the process of putting this in production. For more information, look for “conurus” on Twitter, Youtube or Google.

The website of the compnay is:

P.S.: See the list of all current EOS to NEX manual adpaters on eBay (Click here).

Thanks A.
