Robert:I thought I would pass on a link to my newest site and a review of the NEX-7 I did. I love the camera and the fact that you can mount any 35mm lens ever made. It’s a great little camera. It’s a new site. Bob http://24mmpov.com/my-sweet-little-nex-7-a-personal-perspective/. I love the manual focus versatility of the Sony NEX-7 camera, I got mine about 8 months ago and here’s why the NEX-7 makes photography fun again for me.

Mocha:Just some sharing of using Sony NEX-5N/ 7 with Olympus 15mm f/8 on a M4/3 to NEX adapter. Enjoy! :)

(SR4) UPDATED: Sony A58 Dynamic Range improvement confirmed.

An anonymous Sony A58 tester just sent me an info that the new Sony sensor powering the upcoming A58 has indeed an improved dynamic range. He said he never was able to see so many details in the shadows. This all sounds very promising!

By the way, there is some uncertainty about the exact release date. But it should be announced next week and if not…then the week after.

Sony A58 specs reminder:

– The A58 will have a 20 megapixel sensor capable of shooting at 8fps (frames per second).
– The body has the same size as the current A57.
– It will have a brand new focusing system that he said is “very cool” (you may tell us more about it?)
– you will be able to control the camera from a computer (like all the Canons) but it wont have Wi-Fi.
– Price is $599

And here it is the brand-old NikkorNex :)

Image and creation by Brendan Taylor.

Nikon 1 mirrorless system sucks and the NEX cameras look is to boring for you? Than just squeeze your NEX camera into an old styled and good looking Nikon F camera chassis! You can see the full “How-To” pics on Brendan Taylor’s google plus page. Great work Brendan!

(SR4) Short update about the new A58 sensor….

Just a short notice about the new A58 sensor. As I told you it has  20 Megapixels. I’ve now been told by one source that this sensor should have a “greatly improved Dynamic Range” compared to previous generation sensors. I really hope this is a real measurable difference and not just a marketing slogan :)

Message to that source: Can you tell me what you like and not like on the new A58? And can you confirm the February 20th as announcement date? Uh, and the final price of the Zeiss?   Thanks :=)
