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 […]

Sony breathes life into its APS-C line-up with new cameras and lenses

Sony held an event in New York earlier today. The keynote was as boring as the last one. It also didn’t help SonyAlphaRumors got the juicy details before Sony representatives had the chance to show everyone the new products. But the new cameras and lenses are here and they prove Sony believes in APS-C. I’m […]

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 RX100 VII: a point-and-shoot with a point to make

It’s easy to see why people are impressed by the new Sony RX100 VII. I know I am. It’s not because of the things that were improved, but rather by the whole package. This tiny camera is a point-and-shoot with serious tech inside. For a family person, it can be the only camera he or […]

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 […]

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 […]
