The Sony a9 III’s Base ISO Reflects the Cost of a Global Shutter

How To Make a Photo Trap With a Raspberry Pi and a Sony Alpha

Recently a squirrel noticed our nut box that was waiting to be raided for almost a year now. But as our squirrels here are a bit skittish, I needed to come up with a way to get in close to take nice pictures of them.

Deep Discounts on Sony Cameras and Lenses This Week

Starting today and through the end of the week, you can score discounts on everything from the a9 and a7R IV to a host of lenses anywhere Sony is sold.

Yongnuo Unveils ‘Nifty Fifty’ Lens for Sony APS-C Cameras

Yongnuo has unveiled a new 50mm f/1.8 lens, expanding its "nifty fifty" lineup to include the YN50mm f/1.8S DA DSM for Sony's E-Mount APS-C cameras. We don't have a price yet, but we expect this to be the cheapest 50mm lens you can buy for Sony's a6000 series once it hits stores.

Does Sony’s Crop Mode Mean I Need Fewer Lenses?

A major change -- and learning curve -- for me this year has been my switch from Nikon to Sony. I’ve already documented the story of my switch to Sony, but what I have since discovered is the huge possibilities -- or as some of us might call it the “confusion of options” -- that comes with owning a Sony Alpha camera.

Testing the Sony a7R III with the $5,700 Canon 200mm f/2L

Sony's latest mirrorless cameras are much improved when it comes to shooting with adapted lenses from other manufacturers. To test just how well it works, photographer Manny Ortiz got his hands on a $5,700 Canon 200mm f/2.L IS lens and mounted it to his new Sony a7R III camera.

Review: The Sony a9 is the Camera of a Wedding Photographer’s Dreams

Until 2016, I had photographed weddings using nothing but Nikon cameras. First the D90, then D700, D3s, D4 and then the D4s (while dabbling with the D800, D810, and D750 in-between). I love/loved my Nikons and never regretted avoiding Canon at any stage.

The Star Eater Issue: Why I No Longer Recommend Sony Cameras for Astrophotography

Sony makes excellent cameras. In the last few years, they launched a completely new full frame camera system that has pushed the bounds of digital photography. I switched entirely to Sony gear after first seeing the tremendous low-light capability of their a7S and have enjoyed many outings shooting astrophotography on many different Sony camera bodies since.

Canon and Sony Win Big at Prestigious EISA Awards for Photo Gear

The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has been giving out awards for the best photography equipment for 34 years, so they know a thing or two about what makes a good piece of gear. And this year, Canon and Sony cleaned up receiving 8 of the 19 photography awards EISA gives out.

WikiLeaks’ Sony Docs: A7r II, A6000 II, and RX Cameras Coming. A-Mount Left to Die?

WikiLeaks has just published a massive collection of emails and documents that were leaked through the 2014 Sony hack. Among the documents was a product and service launch calendar that mentions new cameras Sony is (or was) planning to launch in the first part of this year.

If the calendar is still accurate, then Sony will soon be announcing new cameras in the A7r, A6000, and RX lines.

Leaked: Sony’s Next Smartphone ‘Lens Camera’ Will Let You Swap E-Mount Lenses

You get a leak! And you get a leak! Everybody gets a leak!

It looks like somebody (or a few people) in the know at Sony were feeling very generous this morning because we woke up to not one, but two separate sources of leaked photos showing a very exciting new product from Sony: the next QX, smartphone-mounted 'lens camera.'

And it's exciting because, in this case, the term 'lens camera' doesn't really work anymore. This isn't a whole camera contained in a lens... it's more of a smartphone-attachable E-Mount that will let you swap out lenses!

Mirrorless Sports Photography: Capturing the Tour de France with the Sony a6000

I was under the spell of mirrorless ILCs from their birth in 2009 when Panasonic and Olympus literally tore up the rule book and started from scratch. Their debut models, the G1 and EP1, may have been a little rough around the edges, but I was immediately smitten: these were the future of cameras, at least as far as I was concerned.

At last an interchangeable lens camera with a sensor big enough to deliver high quality images, but a body small enough that I'd never leave it at home; the lens selection grew quickly and as for the full-time electronic composition, I embraced the positives, sold my full-frame DSLR and never looked back.
