Sony has announced that Alpha A68 SLT camera will be making its way to the US in April 2016. It has been quite a long time since the US market saw an A-mount camera and we’ve wondered whether the A-mount system was dead. [Read more…]
In this video, I look at the new Canon EOS M10 and Sony A5100 and how well they both work with Canon EF lenses when paired with the Canon EF to EF-M Adapter and the Metabones EF – E Speed Booster Ultra (note: link is the newest version), respectively.
Canon has taken a lot of crap for its efforts in the mirrorless market (and in many ways, deservedly so). The EOS M10, although an entry-level model, is a step in the right direction. Sony isn’t slowing down and once it gets its own lens library built up, we’ll all stop asking questions about which adapter is the right one for your Sony mirrorless camera and Canon lenses.
Just when you thought the Sony A-mount was going to die a slow and painful death, Sony Europe has announced the A68 SLT camera. [Read more…]
After Sony’s recent firmware update to the A7R II, which added uncompressed RAW capture, Sony is also bringing the feature to the A7 II. Additionally, Sony will add on-sensor phase detection AF operation to the A7 II for faster and more precise autofocus on Sony A-mount system and other lenses using an adapter.
The uncompressed RAW capture will be a new menu options (just like it is on the A7R II after its most recent update) and compressed RAW will still be an option for those who want to save a little storage space.
This new firmware version 2.0 will be available for download on November 18 from Sony’s support site.
Sony has released firmware version 2.0 for the A7R II. The firmware update adds the following improvements over version 1.10:
- Adds the selectable feature for uncompressed 14-Bit RAW image capture
- Adds support to output video via HDMI during use of the Remote Camera Control software (still mode only)
This is a free firmware update of a highly-requested feature (uncompressed 14-bit RAW). You can download it here on Sony’s website.
Alongside the announcement of the new Sony RX1R II, which ships with uncompressed 14-bit RAW image capture from its 42.4MP full frame sensor, Sony also announced that firmware version 2.0 will be available for the Sony A7R II next Monday, October 19, 2015 and will add uncompressed 14-bit RAW image capture as a menu option.
Additionally, firmware version 2.0 will add the ability for the A7R II to output video via HDMI during use of the Remote Camera Control software, that enables remote capture from a connected computer.
The firware update will be available here on Sony’s support site for the A7R II.
