New 35mm f/1.7 E-mount lens from SLRmagic

Share

SLRmagic just launched a new 35mm f/1.7 lens with E-mount. This lens works without adapter and has been designed for NEX cameras. SLRmagic sent a presentation text to mirrorlessrumors:

There are not much lenses in the NEX E-mount so far. We have a 35mm f1.7 lens that sell pretty well in m4/3 mount. We occasionally receive emails requesting for e-mount version of the lens. It is now available for pre-order and ships by Sept 10th. We will have 100pcs initially and offer free shipping as well. Cost just under $100. Hope there will be others interested in this lens. Our lens is optimized for NEX so there is no vignette in the photos and does not need cropping. Click here to check the lens auction on eBay

Sony NEX-VG10 reviews and preorders roundup!

Sony NEX-VG10 AVCHD E-Mount Lens Camcorder

Luminous Landscape tested the camera and explained why it has a “fake” 60i: “in brief, what’s going on is that the AVCHD standard doesn’t include 30P, but it does include 60i. Most Sony’s AVCHD cameras (including the VG10) capture 30P, but make it appear to other devices as 60i. Most non-linear editors, such as Final Cut, figure this out by themselves, and when you check the Info screen will confirm that the footage is 30P.“.
Luminous Landscape also talked about the missing 24p feature: “I asked the question of why 24P is missing of Sony’s marketing people and didn’t get a satisfactory answer. No Sony camcorders below their pro and semi-pro models have 24P. Many prosumer cameras from Canon, Panasonic and others do offer 24P, so it seems that this is simply a market segmentation strategy on Sony’s part. High-end cameras get it, lower end cameras don’t. Which means that in Sony’s marketing mind the VG10 is a low-end camera.

A Sony NEX-VG10 First Look Review has been posted at Digitalcamerareview and at Sonyinsider.

Alister Chpaman tested the NEX-VG10 and makes RAW files available for download! He is also sure that “this camera will be popular with those that are seeking the filmic look.”

(SR5) The translucent tecnology advantage explained by Sony!

Share

Our sources sent us a list of advantage of having a translucent tecnology. Apparently those are the arguments Sony will use to promote their A33 and A55 cameras!

1) There is no moveable mirror and you can take a picture in less than 0.1 sec!
2) World’s first Phase detection during FullHD video recording!
3) High FPS (10 frames per second).
4) No Mirror blackouts (Fulltime Liveview!).
5) Enables a more compact design. The Translucent cameras do weight 25% less than the current Sony A550. And the size is reduced by over 20%!

Let me add one more advantage: No more “clap” noise because of the mirror!
