David:Earlier today it occurred to me that sometimes we all forget to just have some fun with the camera. Today I set my new A7RII to use Sonyy’s creative modes and wandered around Richmond, a city-fringe suburb of my home town of Melbourne, taking photos. Here is a link to some of the photos that I liked: http://havefunwithsony.blogspot.com.au/2015/11/back-streets-of-richmond-victoria.html
Thinking about it, I am surprised about how many camera reviews (not just the A7RII) cover nothing more than “and it has the usual creative modes as well, if you’re that way inclined.” They’re fun!

Anonymous:Although clearly not a Sony rumor, your readers might find this interesting. Here is an active Kickstarter Project that is going gangbusters: Hercules – The World’s Smallest Camera Motion Control System.

Depending on the Reward that you select, this is a pocket-sized device that will do motorized panoramic moves, motorized time lapse moves, motorized dolly moves on any flat surface and motorized slider moves on the supplied track.
Be sure to read the updates section regarding the Stretch Goals. They have already reached a Stretch Goal #1 that allows magnetic to be used for speed ramping start/stop and repeat moves — like a second shooter for a B-Camera.
Anyway, I thought your readers might find it interesting, especially while the campaign and reduced pricing is still available.
