Jobe:B&H shipped the HVL-F32 flash yesterday. I thought it wasn’t due to ship until mid December so this might be an accident. Figured I’d shoot you a quick snap of the boxes:

JJ Sereday:I am a professional who used to be a Canon DSLR user (5D Mark II, 7D etc.) but switched to Sony 2 years ago when Canon released the 5D Mark III. I was very disappointed with their upgrade which took over 4 years to come. From that moment I realized that Canon’s philosophy was to only implement advance technologies when the market demands it. I didn’t want to be with a company that become complacent.
So I switched to Sony, picked up an A99 and never looked back. By all means Sony is far from perfect and I do get frustrated with their customer service and communication. (Or lack of communication rather) But the gamble turned out to be a smart bet since Sony has been really pushing the market. I am now fully invested with just about all of the Amount full frame lenses an A99 and an A65. I also picked up the A7s since it is probably the best camera on the market in its class.
Sonys division between A mount and E mount is a little frustrating as well. Im more accepting of it since I can use all my Amount lenses with the Emount system but there are some caveats. Non the less – I will be riding it out and hoping for Sony to make some smart decisions.
One decision they made well was with the Sony FS7. They actually listened to their customers and gave them MANY of the features and ergonomics requesting. While it is on my TO GET list, I came across the contest Sony has to win one. (it actually may have been from your site). So I decided to work on a film Ive been too busy to work on and submit it.
The short film is called : In The Details. I shot some footage on a trip I took when I first got my A99 and told myself once I finished it I would send it your way since it was done entirely on Sony A99.”
