Photokina opened his doors today and plenty of bloggers and SAR readers are sending us their hands-on reports and impressions. This post will be continually updated with new informations.
Photokina A99II newsfeed:
Hands-on with Sony a99 II at Dpreview. There is finally some small info about the new menu:
Sony has refreshed the camera’s menus to make them both easier to navigate and to remember. Some associated features have now been clustered together – you can find all the movie options in the same place, for instance.
The tabs as the top of the menu are also now color coded, to help you recognise and remember which section of the menu you’re in. Whether this is be visible enough to help you recall where a particular setting is remains to be seen but it’s great to see Sony taking steps to address their menu system.
