New Canon DSLR’s 100D and 700D and Sony A65V Feedback.

Mixed thoughts on the new gear. They have are still using an 18 megapixel sensor. They have beefed up the Movie modes on both and giving Audio inputs and outputs apparently. That’s all well and good but they still have a 22min cut off on the video even if they can shoot full HD. I’d be interested to see if they can do the file splitting cause I know my 60D cuts off at 4gb or about 13min presently, and it’s frankly annoying.

On another camera related subject, I got a response from Sony as I submitted some feedback on my A65V that I own, requesting for a firmware update to enable manual audio levels and the ability to turn off Auto Gain Control, plus 24P HD video rather than just the 25p and 50p it currently has.

They say they have passed on the feedback. Any other A65V owners out there, spam them with the same request.

Anyhow, looking forward to seeing these new Canon DSLR’s when they land.


Canon Lens on 60D Sharpness Tests.

I’ve been playing with my Sony A65V a little in the studio of late and I have been more than pleased with the results. I’ve got the Sony 18-135 that comes with the premium kit but I have also shot a little on the Sony 35mm F1.8.

The Results have been simply stunning.
I have still got my Canon 60D workhorse and I wanted to see how it fared up.

I shot a few shots of…you guessed it, my Cat in the studio this evening.

Pulling it into Lightroom and pixel peeping, I don’t think it’s quite there, at least not with the current Glass I have.
The 50mm F1.8 came closest to the Sony results. My Sigma 17-70mm wasn’t much chop.
I’ve got a Canon 18-135STM put aside at work for when my new iPad Mini arrives. Ill be interested to see how it goes. seem to think the lens fairs well compared to the Sigma 17-70.
