(SR5) The final NEX firmware available in July

Share

According to our sources Sony will release an important NEX firmware update in July. The firmware will add some kind of new 3D feature to your NEX camera! I really don’t know yet what that means :(
Anyway I was told that this is a very revolutionary feature. You havn’t seen that on any other camera yet!

If you know something feel free to contact me at sonyalpharumors@gmail.com

In the meanwhile feel free to speculate how exactly that 3d function will work ;)

Thanks GH1user and Fotoingo!

The old rumor:

Photorumors just received this tip from a reader:

More pictures from the Sony NEX are in the new German magazine DigitalPHOTO 606/2010 on pages 43 and 114. On page 114 are 3 different lenses (1 big telezoom?) and 3 bodies (blue, red and silver) to see.

Some german reader can find this pictures for us?

Anyway I believe those are the mockups pictures :(

Review: Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 scores impressive results (photozone)

Share

The new Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens (which is also available for Sony Alpha mount) has been reviewed on photozone (using the canon version). The verdict: “The Sigma may be the new star in this lens segment“. Compare the Sigma lens with the Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DT (on photozone). I would say the Sigma lens is much better and costs less than the Sony 11-18mm lens! Probably this could become your favorite wide angle zoom :)

Order the lens on Amazon US / Adorama / Amazon Deutschland / Amazon UK / Amazon France
