Sony APS-C Camera Update


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/FP230021r.JPG

I know, I've been threatening to do this for some time as I've mentioned in a couple of posts. I've updated my Sony Nex-5N and Nex-7 cameras to an A6000.

 

I never seem to sell any cameras and I've still got those two models. So, what model did I buy? It's actually an older model, the A6000. I just couldn't justify an A6300/A6500. Just too expensive for what I do with them.


However, I ...

New Lens Expectations


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/samyang_r.JPG

 

 

I've been so impressed with the Samyang lenses that I started thinking about them in general. Although they are all manual focus lenses, once you get used to them you really don't miss autofocus at all. Well, that's me speaking of course. Horses for courses and all that.

I now have the 12 f2 for MFT and for Fuji X mount.

This lens is small, unobtrusive, weighs in at 260g and ...

Panasonic TZ101 - Initial Impression


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/FF030040r.JPG

Known in Germany as the TZ101 and as Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS100/TZ100 elsewhere (which I haven't a clue as to why) was purchased as my pocketable go anywhere daylight camera. The reason for the daylight is because of it's f5.9 aperture at the long end. As many of you know I like to shoot long and I wanted something small with a longish lens. It didn't have be fast at the long end, that would make ...

Tamron Firmware Update for their -150 F/3.5-5.8 Di III [Model C001] Lens


innovaeditor/assets/Blog/tamron_firmware_s.JPG

It's been a number of weeks since I've posted. Life just gets in the way sometimes.


Update Information

 

Update Information in Detail

 

I though the fact that Tamron have brought out a firmware update for their 14-150 F/3.5-5.8 Di III [Model C001] was worth mentioning. I reported some time ago that the lens performed better on my Panasonic GX7 than on any other camera. If you look back at the FW update notes, version 1.1 was actually ...
