Is the Sony RX10 IV a great camera for birds and wildlife?

Andreea, my 9 yo daughter discovering the magic of photographing birds with the Sony RX10 IV It’s been long since I’ve put my hands on non-full frame cameras, mainly because I am an addict of this format and I think (many times wrongly) that I can’t do my job or my hobby with a smaller format. So why I’ve put to tests the new Sony RX10 IV? The reason I’ve dug into this new camera was mainly curiosity. Not...

Possible new camera with movie angle setting – is Sony A7S III coming?

Sony A9 firmware update to V3 shows signs of a possible new camera with movie angle setting, super slow 500fps, Sony A7S III maybe is coming? Is Sony A7S III coming imminent? So I jumped the wagon and updated my SONY A9 to the latest firmware available, the recently launched V3.0 (download here). After the normal updated process, I looked into the menu to check for possible new settings and features. When pressing the FN button some...

Sony A7 III – a new milestone of mirrorless systems

Sony A7 III – a new milestone of mirrorless systems Since I’ve heard about the launch of the new full-frame mirrorless camera, the Sony A7 III I’ve giggled in pure joy, but remained a little reticent thinking it might be too good to be true. And I mean Sony A7 III comes with all the goodies from it’s bigger brothers, the Sony A9 (check my review here) and Sony A7R III, all of these in a very competitive price...

Impresii de la matchFRAME 2018 Ca tot va anuntasem sa nu ratati prima editie a matchFRAME de la Oradea si unii nu m-ati ascultat si n-ati venit, regretand probabil in cele din urma, am zis sa va povestesc totusi un pic cum a fost.

Gear P0Яn In primul si in primul rand trebuie sa va povestesc ceva cam greu de descris (mai ales ca nu mai am imagini din...

Forest training – flying a drone in the woods

Forest Training – flying a drone in the woods, between the trees with the DJI Mavic Pro It’s a boring clip, I know but it’s part of a necessary training for everyone to lean how to fly in confined spaces. Here are some hints for your forest training: tripod mode (for slow and precise manoeuvres) stay behind the drone all the time and walk behind it to watch for small, hidden dangers (small branches) turn off obstacle...

How to use Sony A9 FTP Transfer

How to use Sony A9 FTP Transfer I’ve been owning the camera for quite a while (see my review here) but never needed this function, the Sony A9 FTP transfer. Recently I’ve stumbled upon plenty of questions online related to this function and the lack of info related to the subject. The Sony A9 manual is not much of a help either. So I’ve decided to look into it and share with you the information on how to use the Sony...

Sony A7R III Slow Motion in Blizzard S&Q HDR video

Sony A7R III Slow Motion in Blizzard S&Q HDR video I’ve taken out today the Sony A7R III (check impressions here) in a big blizzard to play with the S&Q setting plus HDR video and also check its resistance in extreme weather. It looks like it’s handling extreme conditions better than me 🙂 So I’ve created a small clip shot mostly in S&Q 4x slow-motion (100fps 25p) and HDR video. Here it is: Posted also on...

Sony A7 III – inapoi la modelul de baza

Sony A7 III – inapoi la modelul de baza Pe 6 noiembrie 2013 scriam articolul de test al primului model mirrorless full-frame de pe piata Sony A7 (citeste review aici), lansat cu putin timp inainte de catre Sony, model care a deschis cai neumblate si neasteptate pana atunci. De 4 ani si cateva luni, producatorul nipon nu conteneste sa ne uimeasca si nu isi lasa utilizatorii si fanii sa astepte prea mult pana sa mai lanseze un nou...
