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...

Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens hands on review on Lago Maggiore

This article is a continuation of the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master and Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens review. Here is part 1. As I was telling you in the first part we had our hands on these two lenses on a press trip on Lago Maggiore, Italy. We had plenty of Sony A9’s, A7R II‘s and both these lenses on our disposal. I’ve focused a little more on the Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master than needed so I took less time to check this...

The Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master and Sony 12-24 f/4 G lens review

I’ve been invited last week to the European press event to see and test the newly announced Sony 16-35 f/2.8 G Master and Sony 12-24 f/4 G.  It’s difficult to review a lens after a day’s usage. Not to mention two of them :). So let’s not call this a real review, but a hands-on experience. A marvellous experience on the coast of Grand Lake (Lago Maggiore) as seen from Stresa, Italy. So let’s take them one...

One week with the Sony A9 – An honest hands-on review

Sony took us by storm when they’ve announced the much expected Sony A9. I was watching the live event (and live blogging about it) and soon after, on Internet started to appear footage with the shooting experience at the launch. I was once again blown away and couldn’t figure why Sony didn’t marketed the A9 as a wedding camera. But more on that … One month later, I got my hands on the Sony A9 My phone ringed...

Cum se monteaza un scaun auto ISOfix – prezentare video

Am tot cautat pe net inainte sa fac achizitia cat mai multe informatii despre un scaun auto decent cu sistem ISOFix pentru gemenii nostri. De fapt doua scaune, dar am vrut sa fie la fel, sa nu facem discriminari. Pana la urma m-am deschis asupra scaunului auto Caretero Defender plus (asta e modelul). Producatorul este polonez, iar materialele mi s-au parut de o foarte buna calitate. Cel mai mult insa la acest scaun auto mi-a placut...

M-am dat iar cu Sony a6500

Am mai scris aici despre Sony a6500. Prima oara mi-am dat cu parerea dupa ce a fost anuntat, iar a doua oara, dupa o sesiune de hands-on la Londa, cand a fost lansat in Europa. Am primit la teste Sony a6500 Sunt sigur ca va asteptati la un review marca aLLin™ cum v-am obisnuit de fiecare data cand am pus mana pe cate-o jucarie noua, de interes mare pentru cat mai multa lume. Nu as vrea sa va dezamagesc, dar sunt sigur ca ma veti...

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 🙂 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...
