Our friends at sonyalpharumors.com posted a review of the NEX pro hot shoe adapter. I’m very confused as to why Sony has to use a proprietary hot shoe mount for their cameras. They’ve always done this on many of their product and early digital camera’s like using memory stick instead of compact flash. It annoys me to no end. Sony why can’t we just have a standard hot shoe?? I understand trying to be different and to sell more products, but do you really make that much money on flashes?? Don’t think so, luckily the Sony NEX-7 is a killer […]

Sony NEX-7: Contax G to NEX adapter

Sony NEX-7: Contax G lens to NEX E mount adapter Almost two decades ago I started my love for rangefinder cameras starting with the Yashica Electro 35. I’ve always coveted the Leica’s but couldn’t afford them so I went with the Contax G1 when it was time to upgrade and do more serious work. The G1 was a great little camera and worked well for what it was, but when the Contax G2 came out I traded in my G1 for the G2 and haven’t gone back since. The Contax G2 fixed the issues that I had with the G1 […]

How to take better Ebay photos with your iPhone

How to take better Ebay photos with your iPhone I buy and sell fairly frequently on Ebay and as I was teaching a friend, how to Sell on Ebay, he made the very astute observation, that most of the photo’s on Ebay look like they have been taken with a “crappy” camera phone, and that you couldn’t really see the products very well. I told him that Ebay has a great mobile App that lets you post straight from your phone to their site and many people use this feature. Also, even if you are using a desktop or laptop […]

Sony NEX-7: Leica M-Mount to NEX adapter

Sony NEX-7: Leica M-Mount to NEX mount adapter I just wanted to give a quick review for this Leica M-Mount to NEX mount adapter. I searched the internet for an adapter that both was cost-effective and well made and durable. If you look on the internet you will find many adapters that will allow you to use Leica M-Mount lenses with the Sony NEX-7. You will see names such as Metabones, Photodiox, RainbowImaging, Novaflex, Phottix, and Zykkor. Then you have the Generics that don’t really have a name but “look” like the ones with names. Price ranges on the average […]
