Sony says A7rIII preorders are higher than estimated

Sony is talking to the press like DC.watch and Amateur Photographer and those are the interesting bits of info:

  1. Mirrorless market is growing worldwide (In Japan Sony has 29% of the FF market share)
  2. A7rIII preorder numbers are higher than expected
  3. focus is on the professional market without to sacrifice the consumer market (but the boundaries between the two markets are getting closer)
  4. New VENICE camcorder sensor is based on a stills sensor (SAR note: Probably A9)
  5. In Europe Sony is the number one mirrorless share holder and the number two in the FF market
  6. it’s the surest bet imaginable that over the next year or two it will concentrate on releasing high-end long telephotos matched to the Alpha 9
  7. Don’t expect to see a Sony medium-format system appear any time soon

Preorders:
Sony A7rIII at Amazon, Bhphoto, Adorama, BuyDig, FocusCamera, Calumet DE, Wex UK. Photo Porst Neuwied. Sony Netherland. Sony Australia. Sony Japan.
Sony 24-105mm at Amazon, Bhphoto, Adorama, BuyDig, FocusCamera, Calumet DE, Wex UK.

Serge Ramelli tests the Luminar 2018 and creates Autumn atmosphere and Sunrays out of nothing

Youtube star Serge Ramelli tested the Luminar 2018 software (purchase here). And he shows you how to create an autumn atmosphere from a boring picture.

I guess that’s the future of photography. Take a shitty pic and transform it in whatever you like. And you will not even have to own a good camera.. The German Max Planck institute has a special AI algorythm to create high resolution images from a low resolution original photo (PDF file here).

First A7rIII and 24-105mm lens shipped to Chinese buyers

The very first A7rIII has been shipped today to Chinese buyers (Source Xitek). Some time ago Sony stated that China was the number one Full Frame market in terms of volume. I guess that’s why the camera is shipping earlier than in USA and EU. And as you can see from these images below both the A7rIII and the new 24-105mm lens are made in China too.

Preorders:
Sony A7rIII at Amazon, Bhphoto, Adorama, BuyDig, FocusCamera, Calumet DE, Wex UK. Photo Porst Neuwied. Sony Netherland. Sony Australia. Sony Japan.
Sony 24-105mm at Amazon, Bhphoto, Adorama, BuyDig, FocusCamera, Amazon DE. Calumet DE, Wex UK.
