Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 – loving to manual focus again

As soon as I got my hands on the Loxia 85mm I was impressed of the smoothness of the focus ring and by the entire construction of the lens. Until I’ve tried first to change the lens from the camera body ­čÖé Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 – loving to manual focus again First thing first, when you get your hands on the lens, you’re not expecting to get so much weight in such a small body. It weights almost 600 grams, which means...

M-am dus la o petrecere cu SONY a6300

Cand e loc de party si de fugit de responsabilitati, unii ar zice ca sunt primul. Cum am primit invoire de la #doubleTrouble si aveam si Sony-ul a6300 din nou asupra-mi (vezi aici primele impresii), am zis ca daca tot ma duc sa si documentez video cele intamplate la locul unde se prostesc distreaza oamenii mari. Adica la Bloggers Lan Party. 12 Si cum era plin de televizoare Sony BRAVIA 4K (ati vazut reclama filmata in Romania, la...

Am pus mana pe Sony a6500 si pe noul RX100 V

Am dat o “fuga” pana la Londra sa particip la lansarea noilor Sony RX100 ajuns la cea de-a cincea generatie si a lui Sony a6500, camera care este fara doar si poate ce visam sa fie Sony a6300 cand a fost lansat. Sediul Sony din Londra este casa atat pentru Sony UK cat si pentru Sony Europe, adica cartierul general de operatiuni al Sony in Europa. Evenimentul pentru jurnalisti a inclus pe langa conferinta de lansare si...

Hands on cu nou lansatele Sony 70-200 f/2.8 GM si Planar 50mm f/1.4

In 11 iulie 2016 am participat la Berlin la evenimentul de lansare pe piata al celui de-al 21-lea obiectiv din gama full-frame (montura FE). Al 21-lea intr-un interval de numai 3 ani, lucru pe care nu l-am fi crezut posibil atunci cand Sony a lansat noua gama full-frame mirrorless – seria Alpha 7. English version – is here! In colaborare cu Zeiss, colaborare ce aniverseaza in acest an 20 de ani de activitate impreuna, Sony...

Ce camera sa aleg – Sony a6300 sau a6000?

Ce camera sa aleg – Sony a6300 sau a6000?

Nu de multe ori am auzit “a6300 sau a6000?” Intrebarea aceasta probabil ca si-au pus-o foarte multi dupa ce Sony a lansat urmasul camerei care a luat piata prin surprindere acum 2 ani, adica Sony a6000. Urmasul nu s-a numit a6100 cum multi s-ar fi asteptat ci direct a6300 (cu probleme mari de stoc datorita cutremurului din Japonia ce a afectat fabrica de senzori Sony – verifica stoc si pret). Inca nu mi-am raspuns la...

Utilizare Nissin Di700A kit Air 1 – cum il setez

Iata ca mi-am calcat pe inima si am cumparat prima “chinezarie” din trusa foto, kit-ul de blit plus commander wireless Nissin Di700A cu Air 1┬á(vezi model). In mod normal nu aveam asteptari prea mari, dar un lucru mi-a atras atentia: mentiunea Tipa Awards 2015 de pe poza si descrierea produsului. Nu am stat mult sa investighez, eram intr-o graba foarte mare si l-am cumparat, cu gandul ca daca nu e ce trebuie il returnez in...

10 minutes with Sony 70-300 FE

That’s it. I got the Sony 70-300 FE lens (check price) from the camera store to test on a A7S II but I didn’t want to play with it inside. So a clerk accompanied me outside for 10 minutes. Man this lens is big! And heavy. But it’s a G lens and since the A mount 70-300mm was a long time favourite of mine, the new one┬ámight find room very soon in my bag. So, the only thing that came to my mind was to shoot this lens at...

Review Sigma 30 F1.4 DC DN Contemporary

Being the first 1.4 from Sigma for the E-mount Sony system, this lens was long expected. APS-C mirrorless users must have a big smile on their faces, now that the new Sigma 30mm F1.4 DC DN Contemporary hit the shelves at a price more than accessible (check price and availability here). The 30-35mm focal range is very crowded on the E mount, no less than 10 fixed focal lens being available, without taking into consideration the zooms...

De ce iPhone SE este mai bun decat iPhone 6s?

Iata ca visul meu s-a adeverit┬ádupa ce mi-am pus peste tot dorinte, am aruncat banuti in fantani, pe sub poduri din Paris si alte locuri facatoare de minuni ca Apple sa revina la formatul “clasic” al telefonului de 4 inchi. Au scos pe piata mult asteptatul iPhone SE (Second Edition?!) Nu am asteptat mult, nu am stat deloc pe ganduri si l-am cumparat de cum a fost disponibil la noi. Il gasiti la eMag sau iStyle in stoc,...

Sony 85mm f 1.4 G Master lens hands on

Testing the┬áSony 85mm f 1.4 G Master lens It’s difficult to call it a real test, but more a 2h hands on at an event I’ve attended last week in Amsterdam, where Sony held the launch event of the new Sony A6300 (see the hands on) camera and the 3 G Master lenses. In this short article I’ll write about the Sony 85mm f 1.4, a lens I’ve waited so much, and I got a feeling┬áI┬áwasn’t┬áthe only one. I’ve...
