Building the next generation Sony mirrorless camera

What would you do if you were in charge of Sony’s cameras? How would you design the next APS-C camera? Before you build your wishlist, here’s what I want. Meaningful software Before I get to the hardware, here’s what I want Sony to do: acknowledge the smartphone is a more capable device than a camera. […]

Photography puts things into perspective

We live in an age the level of noise is extremely high. Neverending breaking news cycles are assaulting our need for safety, making us less willing to communicate with others. In turn, we take the shouting to social media networks. It never ends. Taking a hobby might help dial down the loudness. Photography did it […]

DJI got the size and weight right with the Mavic Mini

There were a lot of camera related announcements. The one that stood out for me is the new DJI Mavic Mini. It’s the cheapest drone in the range and features a few specs suited for beginners. The size and weight are the ones I feel matter the most. In a world where smartphones have given […]

Be happy with your camera

The internet comment section is heavily focused on specs, rather than what makes a camera a joy to use. The newly announced Sony A9II is the perfect example. Sony already had a highly praised sports professional camera – the A9 – and they improved upon the things pros need: ergonomics, dust and moisture resistance, faster […]

Entry-level ILCs might be marketed to the wrong audience

The Canon M200 is the latest entry-level interchangeable lens camera that uses hip and likable young people in the adverts. And I get the idea. Young people want to look as good as possible on social media. Smartphones may be more convenient to use, but they lack the benefits of a bigger sensor and dedicated […]

Little things Sony can do to improve their cameras

While most of the internet is focusing on big technologies Sony should put in their future cameras, there are little things that certainly can be improved. The first one is the tripod thread on the RX100 cameras. Believe it or not, Sony didn’t put it right under the lens. It’s the only thing this point-and-shoot […]

It’s time Sony gave users wireless RAW transfers

The news that Nikon updated SnapBridge with RAW transfer capabilities should make Sony do the same thing. It shouldn’t be that hard. Sony users can already transfer RAW files through apps such as Cascable and Camrote. Therefore recent mirrorless and high-end point-and-shoots have the ability to send RAWs wirelessly. They just need a good app. […]

Sony A7R IV: Sony Needs Some Apple Magic For Its Keynotes

Like any Sony fan out there, I tuned in to Sony’s keynote. At one point the guy presenting the camera said he couldn’t go through all the features of the Sony A7R IV because there were time constraints. I immediately thought I would see more products (there were a lot of rumors lately). However, the […]

Wishing For New Sony APS-C Lenses

A while ago I explained why Sony doesn’t have high quality APS-C lenses. We’ve just seen Sony is committed to the full frame market, with the launch of the 600mm f/4 G Master and the much cheaper 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 lenses. So is it wrong to write down a few lenses I wish Sony would launch? […]

Sometimes I Miss the Sony Kit Lens

The kit lens is easily one of the most underated pieces of camera equipment. It’s not a wonder of image quality, it’s not fast enough for reliable low-light photographies. However, it just is a good way to learn how to use a camera. Mine was the Sony E Mount pancake: the 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS. On […]
