New A6000 Flash Bounce Card, new Ikelite housing and a new review from Colby Brown.



SAR reader Ferrell McCollough sent me this:

The Sony A6000 Flash bounce cards have a new addition. I just added the Amber Flash Bounce card to the set of White and Clear cards. If you want to have a look, these products have been popular among the A6000 owners. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-A6000-Flash-Bounce-Card/dp/B00LEX4RW4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1427319737&sr=8-1&keywords=Sony+A6000+Flash+Bounce.

There is also a new underwater TTL Housing for Sony Alpha a6000 from Ikelite.

And Colby Brown reviewed the A6000:

If you told me two years ago that for less than $600 I could get my hands on a mirrorless camera that not only compares to most DSLRs in terms of features, functionality and image quality, but beats many of them, I would of thought you were crazy. To me, Sony has created an incredible camera at an incredible price point that is honestly hard to beat. On top of it being much more affordable that most DSLRs, it offers awesome image quality, 11 fps shooting and an AF system that for the most part is better that most other cameras out there. In addition, add Sony’s wifi/app support and its growing line of both e & fe mount lenses, and the Sony a6000 becomes an even better deal.

Innovative Sony multilayer sensor patent shows how to get rid of corner issues.



The short E-mount flange distance has one “drawback”. Lenses have to be larger to correct the incident angle at the corner which usually causes heavy color shifting, huge vignetting and loss of sharpness. That’s why Voigtlander redesigned the Heliar 15mm III lens (here on eBay). And the new design makes the new lenses twice as big as the predecessor.

Sony seems to have acknowledged that there is an issue to be solved. Egami spotted a new Sony sensor which packs a couple of innovations. First of all this is a multilayered sensor (and not a classic RGB Bayer). And the second innovation is that there is a lens on the sensor that corrects the angle of the light hitting the sensor. With that solution the light hits the full sensor with the right angle. It would allow lenses to be more compact because they don’t have to uses more glass to correct the angle.

On paper it would also allow all third-party lenses (particularly wide-angle lenses) to work flawlessly on Sony FE cameras. Let’s hope the next generation FE camera will come with such a sensor. Exciting!
