Alex:I shot this video for a client on the A7s. If you want to feature it, she would be so happy: http://youtu.be/-WM2pfqfb2A
Details:
• Fs700+A7s combo
• ImpulZ film luts for color grading
• Shot in one day, with another half day for pickups
• Single operator docu style piece for the launch of her new website.
• Canon lenses 16-35 F/2.8L II 70-200 F/2.8 IS I
• Sony 24-70 f/4.0 Surprisingly good in autofocus mode on the Steadicam.

Eugene:I just did a review of new version Mitakon 50mm F0.95 Pro (Dark Knight). When I was looking to get the lens I did not find to many reviews of MKII. Perhaps this could be useful for someone: http://fratkinphoto.blogspot.com/2014/10/low-light-monster-mitakon-50mm-f095.html

Dave:Lol, sometimes incredible high ISO performance backfires. I shot this little clip at ISO 60,000 to give it that edgy, grainy, rough look. But even though the pull in is done digitally (so we’re down to half resolution at the end) it’s still very clean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnXjKqFkPSc

Alexandre:I shot some pictures during a Wedding Fashion Show in Bangkok last week-end. I used my Sony A7R+FE35mmF2.8 and the Flash Sony HVL-F43M. You can see here the most beautiful models from this show: http://thailandfacts.com/wedding-fashion-show-bangkok-thailand-we-2014/

(SR3) Very first A7000 rumors (NEX-7 successor). Has 4K and 1/8000 shutter speed?

FacebookShare

It’s really time for Sony to update the great NEX-7 camera. And this is a brand new rumor I got from an anonymous source. So for now take it with a grain of salt but let us know what you think about:

2015 will see the release of the a7000.  It will include a new version of the 16-50 powerzoom dubbed version II with much improved quality.   The camera itself will feature full tethering capabilities, 4k video (uncompressed output), 1/8000 shutter speed, weather sealing, and maintain its rangefinder style.    Above all this, a new 16-70 zeiss will be released that will be weather sealed as well.  The 16-50 will not be weather sealed.
The sensor will be a new one, but still 24 mpx.

Sounds good to me! Be sure to not miss any upcoming exciting rumors and subscribe us here:
