Sony NEX-7 50mm F1.8 OSS video test

I just wanted to post a quick video test that I did with the Sony NEX-7 with Sony 50mm F1.8 OSS lens. I wanted to see the performance of the Optical Steady Shot on the Sony 50mm F1.8. I was at Seaworld, San Diego catching the Clyde and Seamore Show and the Intro was very entertaining so, I recorded it all hand-held and did some panning back and forth to follow the action. I was impressed by how the Optical Steady Shot worked and besides getting bumped here and there by my son, the video was pretty smooth. The video […]

Fantastic Fill Flash For Five Cents

If you are looking for better fill flash or diffused flash, whether you are an event photographer or an enthusiast taking portraits, I’ve got a great “Do it yourself” Tip that will save you money.

Leica M-Monochrom Preview

For those of you that like Leica, and like B&W photography, Leica has just released a perfect solution for you. A monochrom Leica M9 for $8000.00 USD. Leica says they have taken out the color filter array so the images should be sharper because the light doesn’t need to go into individual RGB channels. It has an ISO of  300-10,000 and pull option of ISO 160 to maximize dynamic range. They also announced a 50mm Summicron APO lens for $7200.00 all that for a aspherical lens that will hopefully get rid of chromatic aberrations. We’ll see if it really performs […]
