First Sony NEX5 + Leica lens test

Sawamura Tetsu from DC.watch tested the $loc = $_SESSION[‘geoip’];

if ($loc == ‘GB’ OR $loc == ‘UK’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘ES’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘IT’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘AT’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘DE’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘BE’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘AU’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘FR’ OR $loc == ‘FX’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘NL’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($loc == ‘CA’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm }
if ($sel != ‘1’)
{?>Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm } ?> on the new Sony-NEX5. Click here to read the google english translation.

By the way, the Leica Super-Elmar-M 18mm is a very expensive lens…$loc = $_SESSION[‘geoip’];

if ($loc == ‘GB’ OR $loc == ‘UK’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘ES’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘IT’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘AT’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘DE’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘BE’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘AU’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘FR’ OR $loc == ‘FX’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘NL’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($loc == ‘CA’)
{ $sel = “1”; ?>available for 3.000$ on eBay }
if ($sel != ‘1’)
{?>available for 3.000$ on eBay } ?> :(

Sony NEX-7 rendering (not real images!)

I just found a new Sony NEX-7 rendering. This is not the real camera but a product of imagination ;)

UPDATE: The author of the rendering is Qing Xiang (http://timberwolf.zenfolio.com)

Reminder->There eas a rumor a while go that said that the NEX-7 would be announced at Photokina and:

Design totally different to NEX5/3, and more bigger size
Spec unknow yet
Support XDCAM recording format
soonest release is on Sept, unless Panasonic announce GH2

Nikon and mirrorless…

The following includes questions and answers at the Conference for the Medium Term Management Plan on June 18, 2010 (Source: Nikon.com). The most interesting part is here:

Q: What can you tell us about the new-generation digital cameras?
A: Although we considered a variety of so-called mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras for the digital SLR camera market, we discern the appropriate timing for the launch of our new-generation digital cameras based on the direction of the market demand.

Come on Nikon, you can do it ;)
