Sony unveiled that new hotshoe-mountable LED battery light. As you can see from the video on top it’s actually a super nice gadget you can tilt and angle. There is a dimmer you can adjust from 10% up to 100% power (1800 LUX maximum at 5500 Kelvin). There is even a filter slot for the use of a 3200 conversion filter. The It weights 250g and is priced at $250. One moge thing: you can use AA and Sony V or M batteries, the same used for the A77. Can’t wait to use that LED light on my future A99 :)
A pre-warning for you. A new Stock of NEX-7 bodies should arrive next week at BHphoto (Click here to preorder the camera). Again, order the NEX-7 body only if you need the camera now. the kit version will be available later. And the Zeiss lens is alreayd in Stock at Amazon (Click here) and Adorama (Click here).
Zeiss in Stock at Adorama
For a camera that comes back in Stock (the A65) another one is now going out of Stock (the NEX-5n). The A65 is now available at Amazon (Click here) and BHphoto (Click here) but I just have been told by different suppliers that the NEX-5n stock is almost empty. Example, the black NEX-5n is no more available by Amazon itself (Click here).
One good news: The new Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 for NEX is in Stock for the first time at Adorama (Click here). It has (finally) the normal price…$999!
UPDATE: It sounds like Sony store is making a mess. As you from the screenshot they say it’s available but in reality it is not. Some SAR reader said they called the store and the storeguys said it is NOT in Stock. Please complain with Sony and not with me when they make a mess :)
UDPATE: A couple of minutes after posting this the A77 has been sold out at BHphoto (Click here). Hope some of you guys got the camera.
And Ritz is selling some Sixteen Zeiss for NEX lenses at Amazon (Click here) for “Only” $36 more than the normal selling price.
