Quick Review: Using the Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 at a festival

The FE 50mm f/1.8 is the cheapest full frame lens Sony makes. I got it because I stumbled across a bargain. Since I didn’t have a proper portrait lens for my a6300, the 50mm f/1.8 was the right lens at the right time. I used it for a couple of days before joining the Neversea […]

The Sony RX100 III Video Creator Kit Is Kinda Nice

Sony just announced something with great potential. The Sony RX100 III Video Creator Kit is aimed at first-time vloggers. After all, not everybody can spend $1200 on the latest RX100, not including accessories. But Sony’s latest “bunduru” includes the camera, two batteries, and the Sony vlogging mini-tripod with built-in controls. It’ll be yours for $800. […]

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? […]

Getting Into Photography (Part III)

What do you do when the camera on your phone isn’t capable enough? I started looking for a better one. What I wanted was an entry level DSLR. I already knew Nikon’s offerings, Canon’s weren’t bad either. But then I stumbled upon the mirrorless movement and it didn’t take long for me to get hooked. […]

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 […]

Getting Into Photography (Part II)

Gone were the days of film. Everybody was switching to digital. I even remember seeing the first mobile phone with a camera. Bluetooth and infrared transfers were the rage back in high-school. It didn’t take long for me to join the digital revolution. To me, it had a name: Sony. The camcorder My dad loved […]

High End​​ APS-C Sony E Mount Lenses Are Missing For A Good Reason

Whenever I see fans complain about anything, I try to look at things from the brand’s position. Game of Thrones fans lashed out at the writers for what they consider the worst season. Somehow I feel the fans are madder at a show that’s ending, rather than at a weak performance in the writers’ department. […]

Shooting With The Worst E Mount Lens: The Sony E 16mm f/2.8

This is the Sony E 16mm f/2.8, one of the first lenses made for the E Mount system. It was released in 2010, a time Sony clearly wasn’t considering creating professional mirrorless cameras. Here’s why it’s the worst lens you can have as a Sony user. Optical Quality Pancakes aren’t known for their image quality. […]

The Samyang 45mm f/1.8 FE is a bit confusing

Samyang’s next lens for Sony E Mount is a 45mm f/1.8. With Sony already offering a 50mm f/1.8 for $250, the Samyang 45mm is a bit confusing. So far Samyang impressed photographers with its decent alternatives. The Sony-Zeiss 35mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, and 50mm f/1.4 are a bunch of expensive primes. For a fraction of […]

Weekend Getaway

I’m becoming a firm believer I should post photos on owned channels. Instagram and Twitter are great, but they’re not a certainty. Social Media networks come and go, and this is why I’m starting to create little articles such as this one. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. The photos were taken in Sibiu, […]
