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...

Hands on with Sony FE 24-105 F4 G lens and real world image examples

So we’ve been all impressed by the launch of new toys from Sony, including the Sony A7RIII, the Sony FE 24-105 F4 G and the announcement of in-development Sony G Master 400mm f/2.8. I’ve posted details here about all of them, including some live-footage from the event. After the presentation we were invited for some hands-on experiences with both the A7RIII (see the hands on article here) camera and the new lens, the Sony...

Sony A9 takes a flight in Cappadocia

Did you ever woke up just to think you’re still dreaming? It happened to me plenty of times, but most recently in our Cappadocia trip in Turkey. Hanging mid air at over 500m, before sunrise, surrounded only by silence, hearing nothing but your breath and heartbeat it’s a difficult thing to express in words, or even images. You have to live it by yourself, at least once in a lifetime! I’ve been invited to a Sony Press...

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...

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...

More brilliance. More beauty – Sony Bravia 4k HDR behind the scenes

Sony Bravia 4K HDR TV Commercial – behind the scenes Not many months ago, I’ve been appointed by Sony HQ and asked if I want to be the photographer on set for a new TV Commercial (short TVC) for the new 4k Bravia HDR TV. Imagine my answer: Hell ya! Especially hearing about the location of the shoot Out of aprox 60 locations worldwide, they’ve shortened the list to 5 locations in Europe, and the lucky winner was this...
