Sony A9 firmware 5.0 is here and it just blows away everyting

Sony A9 firmware 5.0 is here and it just blows away everything I’ve seen so far in terms of focusing and tracking. I have updated the very first thing in the morning when it became available and the did a quick run to a nearby lake for some BIF tests. In order to be able to show others what I see in the viewfinder and how Sony A9 behaves with the new firmware 5.0, I have to connect the camera to my Atomos Ninja V and record the...

Sony A6400 – fotografia se schimba

Sony a6400 este una dintre cele 3 camere aparute in gama Sony A6xxx dupa ce producatorul nipon a dat “lovitura” cu modelul de baza a6000 (model care inca se vinde cu mult succes in toata lumea, cred eu cel mai longeviv mirrorless de pe piata). Au aparut Sony a6300 si apoi Sony a6500, fiecare aducand noutati si imbunatatiri modelului de baza, ultimul focalizandu-se foarte mult si pe partea video. Acum, intra in scena...

GoPro 7 black test in offroad

Am luat de curand un GoPro 7 Black sa inlocuiesc micutul session 5 pe care il aveam deja. Motivul principal a fost megastabilizarea de care dispune noul GoPro 7 precum si toate modurile de time-lapse si hyperlapse. Nu va spun mai mult decat atat: se ridica la astepari, ba chiar mai mult. Mai jos un clip de azi, de pe...

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...

Pixel Shift on Sony A7R III – Is it worth the extra work and time?

Pixel Shift on Sony A7R III – Is it worth the extra work and time? First thing first when I got the Sony A7R III in for tests was to check how Pixel Shift technology  really works and what results do we get out of it. What is Pixel Shift first of all? The concept behind this is that better resolution and dynamic range can be obtained by taking the same shot in 4 different exposures, each separated by a 1 pixel wide moving of the...

Shortest day of the year. 10 tips for low-light shooting

Shortest day of the year. Tips for low-light shooting 21st of December is the shortest day of the year. This is the official beginning of astronomical winter. Winter days are short and pretty dark. This doesn’t mean we stop creating images outdoors even when light isn’t enough. Actually the best images in the city are at dusk (also known as blue hour – it happens after sunset and before total darkness in the night sky). As the...

De ce am renuntat la iPhone SE si am trecut la iPhone X

De ce am renuntat la iPhone SE si am trecut la iPhone X Acum 2 ani am vandut iPhone 6s-ul pe care îl aveam de doar 2-3 luni pentru ca se lansa ceva ce asteptam de mult, adevaratul urmas al lui 5s din punctul meu de vedere, mai precis iPhone SE-ul despre care scriam atunci aici. Astazi va spun de ce am renuntat la iPhone SE si am trecut la iPhone X. In primul si in primul rand pentru ca sunt gear-addict si putin tampit: nu prea mai...

With A7RIII, Sony is heading to perfection – sample photos and hands on experience

With A7RIII, Sony is heading to perfection This is what I’ve heard mostly around me the day of the launch in London, and the days after, online. And I must agree. This damn little piece of equipment which is the A7RIII it’s a jewel of electronic technology and a marvellous tool for photographers. I’ve also heard a lot of photographers already using the Sony A7RII (check my review in english here) they will upgrade to...

Prezentare video Sony RX0

Am reusit pentru scurt timp sa “fur” noul Sony RX0 (verifica disponibilitate si pret) de la prezentarea oficiala pentru Europa de Sud-Est din Cappadocia, Turcia. Asa ca a iesit o scurta prezentare video: Cateva cuvinte despre Sony RX0 In caz ca nu v-ati lamurit din clipul de mai sus Sony RX0 este o camera ultra-rezistenta la soc, rezistand la caderi de pana la 2m fara a “suferi” ceva. Direct din cutie rezista...

Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 on Sony A9

I got my hands on the Zeiss Batis 135mm f/2.8 one day before I’ve received to much acclaimed Sony A9 for tests too. In case you haven’t seen my review about the Sony A9, check it here. How is the Batis 135mm? After the not so good experience with the previous Batis, the 85mm f/1.8 (I have returned it, see here why), I didn’t have high hopes for this new lens from the series. But oh boy, how wrong was I! The...
