Sony a99II vs Nikon D5 and Sony a7R II

The Sony a99 Mark II caught a lot of flack when it was announced, but photographers are loving it and the cheapish high quality lens selection that’s available for it. Lenses like the Minolta 80-200mm (I have seen these listed as low as $450) can go head to head with significantly more expensive lenses like the Sony SAL70200G2 70-200mm […]

Techart Pro Follow-up

Techart Pro has grown a lot since my original review and it is now widely avalibe (B&H Photo/Amazon/Adorama), but I haven’t seen a lot of great reviews of the adapter until now. Mirrorless Rumors did a great job reviewing the adapter in video form and Techart Pro seems to be endorsing the use of heavier lenses now in […]

According to Bloom Sony lenses autofocus better in video than Canon ones do, but Canon lenses are more mechanical so they are better for manual focus videographers.

Red Helium 8k S35 Pushes The Sony a7RII Down DXO’s List Another Spot

The Red Helium 8k S35 pushed the Sony a7RII further down DXO’s list, by scoring an unbelievably high overall score of 108. DXO might have to rethink their testing methodology soon. It’s also interesting that they included a camera in their rankings that seems to do some denoising, but still refuse to include Fujifilm in their […]

Lok Films the Disassembly of a Sony a7RII

Lok filmed some of the more interesting stuff at CES this year including this teardown of a Sony a7RII. I am very surprised by how much Sony allows the sensor to move around inside the body for internal 5-axis stabilization. It makes me question how their system affects image quality when in motion.
