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 see the side-by-side comparison of the images they took and see for yourself how much of a difference there is.
Recently, a user on Sony Alpha subreddit reported an issue with his a7 III when a SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB SDXC UHS-I Card is inserted. They were looking for an advice from fellow Sony users, but as it turned out – many more of them have had the same issue with the same memory card type.
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.
One of the things that many people seem to have noticed about the new Nikon Z6/7 and Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless cameras is that the lens mount is huge. They look at their Sony with its relatively small E-Mount and wonder what the big deal is? Is it all just marketing hype from Nikon and Canon to sell super fast aperture lenses?
Maybe not. Leica manager Stephan Schulz backs up the idea that Sony’s E Mount wasn’t designed for full frame cameras in a recent interview with Reddotforum. He also explains why the L mount was developed to address the needs of full frame mirrorless cameras and lenses with autofocus.
The old cries of “If you want to shoot video, get a video camera!” are becoming fewer and fewer these days. Which makes sense given that DSLRs and mirrorless cameras basically are video cameras these days. And just like “real video cameras”, you need to bolt on extra bits to really get the most out of them.
Hybrid shooter and YouTuber Jason Vong talks about his 5 must-have budget accessories for the Sony A6300 and A6500 cameras in this recent video. It’s a good list of handy tools that many of us will need when shooting video.
As a photographer, it’s one of the worst things that can happen. You’re away for three weeks travelling and shooting – for work – and right at the beginning of the trip you drop the only lens you’ve brought with you. That’s what happened to Pierre Lambert and his $2,300 Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens recently.
With part of the body of the lens twisted, there were obvious issues. Pierre chose to take the rather unconventional decision to attempt to repair the expensive lens himself. Fortunately for us, he shot video so the rest of us can see what’s contained inside this $2,300 lens.
If you were hoping for an A7SIII or A7000 announcement, then you’re out of luck. There were no new gear announcements from Sony during their press event at Photokina yesterday. Apparently, though, they plan to bring Animal Eye AF to their cameras.
If you’re a female photographer or filmmaker, Sony is currently offering a fantastic opportunity for you to advance your career. Its Alpha Female Program is now open for submissions and Sony will choose five professional creators who will win plenty of valuable prizes. And what’s more: application is completely free.
Many were hoping for more announcements from Sony today, but as rumoured, it’s just the lens. So while there’s no new high-end APS-C or a Sony A7SIII yet, at least the lens is now official as Sony announces the new 24mm f/1.4 GM lens for full frame Sony E Mount. Manny Ortiz has had the chance to have a play with one and gives us the rundown in this hands-on review.
A new image has leaked of Sony’s new 24mm f/1.4 GM lens. It’s expected to be officially announced at some point later today. Although this may be all that Sony announces today, so if you were hoping for the rumoured 135mm or high end “Mini A9” APS-C camera, you’ll probably be disappointed.
