16Mar Sony a7s II on sale $2399

Looking for a Sony a7s II body? If so, they are currently on sale from Ebay seller electronicsvalley for $2399 with free shipping (from the untied states), which is about $600 less then you can find the Sony a7s II in other places.  $2399 is an excellent price and part of the reason I recently sold off my […]

17Mar Smallrig NATO protective rails.

Still kind of working on my Smallrig layout and I decided to go with one of their “Safety rails” for the top handle. The little quick release spring numb makes me feel a little safer about handing it off to others and prevents the top handle from sliding completely if I bump the thumbscrew. The Safety rail is […]

04Mar Smallrig Sony a7s custom camera cage

I’ve been looking for a small mounting frame for the Sony a7s and a few of you recommended I check out Smallrig’s offering. Smallrig sells a lot of bits and pieces so it can be a little confusing when you are trying to figure out what parts you need/want for a rig. It took me a little […]

02Mar Canon 5d mark III price drop, 5d mark IV on the way?

Canon announced official $300 price cuts on retail 5d mark III and Canon 6d bodies over the weekend and it seems to fall in line with the extremely low 5d mark III ebay prices we’ve been seeing over the last few weeks.  There were a lot of grumblings about the Canon 5ds possibly being the only new 5d branded […]

05Feb Minolta 50mm f1.4 lens on the Sony A7s

Still continuing to test Minolta glass on the Sony a7s. This time, I have the extremely affordable Minolta 50mm f1.4 lens. This tiny little 50mm lens generally sells on ebay for between $140 to $200 and it’s a great value for the price. Build quality is in the ballpark of the Canon 50mm f1.4, mostly plastic with […]

27Jan Sony LA-EA4 E to A-mount adapter Audio test

I finally got my hands on an A-mount lens to test with the Sony LA-EA4 adapter. The Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 is a lens that’s been around for quite awhile and it’s been released for a number of camera mounts including, Sony (A-mount), Nikon, Canon, and Pentax. The Tamron 28-75mm won’t blow your mind, but I managed to pick […]

11Jan Sony a7s LA-EA4 A-mount adapter

You might have heard on the podcast that I’ve been hitting the pawn shops and playing around with older AF Minolta glass on the Sony a7s. The thing that makes it possible is the Sony LA-EA4 E-mount to A-mount adapter. Sony A99 owners have been enjoying older Minolta glass for a while now and with this […]

12Jun Sony A7S v.s. 5d mark III low light test

I’ve posted a few things about how Amazing the low light performance is on the new Sony a7s (here and here) but the video below really drives the point home. Sony really made the right choice move to a lower megapixel sensor and focusing in on lowlight and dynamic range performance. I rarely need 22MP, […]

06Jun New Metabones Canon EF to Sony NEX Lens Adapter (Mark IV)

Thanks to Sven for point this one out. Looks like Metabones just updated their Canon EF to Sony NEX lens adapter. The Mark IV looks very similar to the Mark III with some subtle changes in the opening size and coating. According to Metabones website here are the upgrades: The new design of inner housing […]

02Jun Mitakon Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 For Sony a7s – Preorder

I haven’t owned or used any Mitakon lenses, but their new Speedmaster 50mm f/0.95 looks like a pretty sexy prospect. Up until now the only full frame lens that came close to f/0.95 is the legendary Canon 50mm f1.0 which is why the a 5omm f/0.95 lens for $899 looks so attractive. The question is, do you really need […]
