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: http://en.conurus.com/faq.html

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

Thanks A.

Philip Bloom tests the NEX-FS100 and F3

Low light test: FS100 F3 AF101 5DmkII from Philip Bloom

The well know filmmaker Philip Bloom just posted a bunch of new interesting videos made the two new Sony video cameras and the Panasonic AG-AF100 and Canon 5D markII. The Sony F3 is a PL mount camera and the Sony NEX-FS100 has an E-mount. Read the full preview and see all the videos on Philip’s website (Click here). It’s still to early to draw any final conclusion but it looks like the Sony cameras do deliver the best results! I for myself are strongly considering to buy the NEX-FS100. Want to carry it with me for my next trip in Ecuador in September. Let’s hope the camera release will be not delayed and be in Stock in July (Source: B&H).

Links to the other mentioned cameras:
- Panasonic AG-AF100
- Canon 5D markII

P.S.: Had a very tuff day at work and I just saw that I did recieve many emails form readers. Will try to answer you all within the shortest time possible!

Image on top: Screenshot taken from Sony Germany

Many readers already noticed that Sony is preparing a new NEX-C3 page on their website.  See for example that page on Sony Germany or Sony UK. What I don’t know yet is when Sony will launch the new cameras. I was told that Sony has a planed press release on end of May (for the new NEX lenses). Maybe they are going to announce the cameras too or maybe not. Let’s see.
