A major change – and learning curve – for me this year has been my switch from Nikon to Sony. I’ve already documented the story of my switch to Sony on the blog, but what I have since discovered is the huge possibilities – or as some of us might call it the “confusion of options” – that comes with owning a Sony Alpha camera.
If you’re shooting the night sky with a consumer DSLR and a kit lens, you may wonder if you can make them impressive enough. Well, of course, you can. In this video, Michael Ver Sprill aka Milky Way Mike will share with you some tips and tricks for making sharp and stunning images of the Milky Way even with a crop sensor camera and a kit lens.
Sony Senior General Manager, Kenji Tanaka, has confirmed in an interview with Imaging Resource that they are focusing on APS-C and that a new high end “enthusiast” model APS-C camera is coming.
Many have felt that Sony has kind of neglected small form factor APS-C bodies in favour of full frame. But it has, apparently, always been their plan to focus on APS-C once their full frame lineup was where they felt it needed to be. And with the Sony A9, A7III and A7RIII (and hopefully, soon an A7SIII) it is now where they want it to be.
It’s not much of a secret that Sony is planning to make some big waves in the world of APS-C mirrorless cameras now that their full frame lineup has become so accepted. While no manufacturer can ever make the perfect camera, they’ve proven their worth in that area.
While the A6300 and A6500 cameras don’t exactly suck, it looks like Sony knows they can offer a lot more. Sony Alpha Rumours is now reporting that a new “Mini A9” Sony APS-C camera will be coming before Christmas.
Should you switch from APS-C to full-frame? Or perhaps shoot large format? Does it matter? What will it change? Ah, so many questions. In this video, Jay P. Morgan and Kenneth Meryl have decided to test four sensor sizes side by side and give you the answers. They shot with a large format, a full-frame, an APS-C and a micro 4/3 camera. Here you can compare the images side-by-side and see for yourself how much of a difference there is.
A lot of folks expected more from Sony during Photokina 2018’s announcements. The “baby A9” rumoured to come in the form of the A7000 was nowhere to be mentioned. Instead, we’ll just get better cat photos thanks to Sony’s new Animal Eye AF.
But Kenji Tanaka, global head of Sony’s interchangeable lens camera business, has confirmed in an interview with Pronews.jp that they will once again start focusing on higher-end APS-C cameras.
Full frame vs. crop: which one should you buy? Whether you’re getting your first camera or want to upgrade from the one you already own, this is one of the decisions you need to make. Photographer Sheldon Evans shares his experience with both types of DSLRs. He switched from full frame to APS-C, now he’s going back to full-frame, and he’ll give you some reasons why you should choose one over the other.
After releasing a few images of what is reported to be Canon’s next mirrorless offering, Nokishita have released a few more images of the EOS M50, along with a pretty extensive set of specs, too. Overall, it doesn’t look too bad. 10fps shooting, ISO 100-25600, 4K video, CC-Raw, and “Pupil detection AF” which sounds an awful lot like eye-tracking.
Last month there was the invitation to the secret dealer meeting about some new Canon mirrorless camera. Then we discovered that this might be the EOS M50, capable of shooting 4K UHD video. Now, thanks to Nokishita we’re seeing what are reported to be leaked images of the new camera, and 470 EX AI flash unit, along with some specs.
Sony has announced today a new zoom lens for their APS-C cameras. Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS is a lightweight, versatile lens, and an “ideal fit” for Sony cameras like a6500, a6300 and a6000. It features optical stabilization and a linear autofocus motor, which should provide you with sharper images with handheld shooting.
