Photos from Budapest Pride 2019

I’ve always been a supporter for minorities and I’ve always helped their causes whenever I could. I did volunteer jobs, I photographed events pro bono, or I’ve attended the events I could and had time for. But somehow I’ve never managed to get close or show my support to LGBT community, even if I have friends that belongs there. This time I found myself in Budapest at the same time the Budapest Pride 2019...

How is the new Sony 200-600 G OSS compared to the Sony 100-400 GM?

Even if I’m away from my country, where I’ve acted as a Sony Europe Imaging Ambassador since 2015 (we are moving with the entire family to Sweden), I’m still lucky enough to have the amazing people from Sony Europe trusting me to test new cameras or lenses they are launching. This time around, the newly launched Sony 200-600 G OSS. Sony 200-600 G OSS Weighting 2,115 grams it is a lot heavier than my Sony 100-400 GM...

No day passes without me thinking about the Sony 400mm f/2.8 GM

How can I not remember and dream more about this day? It was last summer when Sony invited me to the launch of the new Sony 400mm f/2.8 GM(onster). Even if it’s a badass looking and performing lens, it weights just 2.9 kilos and it’s an amazing tool to also use it handheld. And there are so many that are doing so (oh, I so envy you Alex Phan and other birders using this amazing lens). Since testing it back in London my...

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...

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...

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...

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...
