Sony Alpha A77 and A65

Sony Alpha A77 and A65

Sony’s latest refinements to its Translucent Mirror Technology make these new cameras the fastest, most responsive interchangeable lens cameras in their class, as well as set new performance benchmarks that even professional DSLRs have yet to achieve. The α77 and α65 both feature a newly developed Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor with 24.3 effective megapixel resolution, as well as the world’s first XGA OLED Tru-Finder viewfinder. The sensor teams with the next generation of Sony’s BIONZ image processing engine to handle huge amounts of high speed data from the camera sensor, enabling unprecedented response times and flawless image quality with ultra-low noise when shooting still images or Full HD video.

They also make a very unique and creative gift for friends and family. Users simply upload any image to the web site, customize it using the easy-to-use toolbox (which includes zoom, rotate, and a choice of border colors), and place their order.

Making Light: Introduction to Off-Camera Flash eBook Review

Making Light: Introduction to Off-Camera Flash eBook Review

Making Light – An Introduction to Off-Camera Flash by Piet Van den Eynde was released today and is designed to help you master external flash photography. The author says “I don’t know about you, but flash used to scare me. I found it to be complicated, difficult to pre-visualize (I’m talking about the pre-digital era here), and lacking quality results. Of course, I only put my flash on my camera and the furthest I got to softening the light was to bounce my flash behind me. I worked on full auto because I found all the rest way too complicated. So, I was an available-light photographer for a long time. Not so much by persuasion as by lack of understanding and, therefore, lack of alternative. If you have a similar attitude to flash, then this eBook is for you.”
