One Sony Egg Is Left to Hatch: When Will We Get the A7S III and What Will It Be Like?

Lots of folks are waiting for the Sony a7s III

Sony has given us the [amazon_textlink asin=’B06ZY7GNKN’ text=’A9′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d112c10e-4fcc-11e8-acb2-01978c55e0e1′], the [amazon_textlink asin=’B076TGDHPT’ text=’A7R III’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’d73c5c53-4fcc-11e8-a437-851952e61f51′], and the [amazon_textlink asin=’B07B43WPVK’ text=’A7 III’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ddae4b39-4fcc-11e8-a04f-0d8d7c0678a6′], so it is only logical that attention has now turned to the A7S lineup. There has been some reporting that Sony could announce the A7S III as soon as mid-late May (in a few weeks). This would make sense: all of the other cameras are out now and have been for some time. So, just taking that at face value for now, what can we even expect to see from the A7S III (or more accurately, what do we want to see)? Continue reading…

DxOmark Releases Sony A7III Test Results, Besting the Flagship A9

The Sony A7 III shines in DxOMark’s sensor testing, hitting way above its pricepoint

In the Sony lineup right now you would likely rank their cameras in this order; A7R III/A9, A7S II, A7 III. But if the latest DxOMark Rankings mean anything to you then you may want to be giving the [amazon_textlink asin=’B07B43WPVK’ text=’A7 III’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’thephobl-20′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’53d8d718-3129-11e8-8e05-c12cac1280a9′] a little more of a look: it is testing really well against all three of the cameras in the Sony system priced higher than it.

Casey Neistat Gives Into The Dark Side, Goes Sony

Casey Neistat may not be daily vlogging anymore, but the popular Youtuber is still producing videos and putting out some killer content regularly.

The Interfit S1 Monolight is Now Compatible with Sony Cameras

A while back, we tested the Interfit S1 and found it to be a pretty good alternative to Phottix and Profoto though not as good as the Flashpoint option in some ways. Today, the company announced that the Interfit S1 is now available to work with Sony cameras that boast the multi-interface shoe. This boosts the options that Sony strobists now have by quite a bit overall.

These lights offer TTL, HSS, wireless flash control via a radio transmitter, have a pretty great build quality, and are overall quite solid. Some of the reliability issues have been fixed from what I’ve been told and so it’s shaping up to become an even better monolight overall. Yet at the same time though, it’s tough to beat the Flashpoint Xplor600’s price point. However, Interfit’s light modifiers are some of the best bang for your buck options out there: like with their parabolic umbrellas.

More specs are after the jump.

Which Sony E Mount Camera Is The One For You? The Easy Answers

Sony’s mirrorless cameras are at the forefront of an ever evolving photographic industry, and in a market where product cycles usually range from three to five years, Sony has blown up that trend and regularly updated their A7 series cameras much more often than the norm. This has led to there quickly being six relatively new A7 full frame cameras, in addition to the APS-C based A6000 and A6300. This makes shopping for a Sony mirrorless a little confusing; and you’re bound to be asking yourself stuff and wondering if you need the latest model, do you need the higher ISO, or resolution or faster auto focus, etc. In today’s post we break it down and share our picks for which Sony mirrorless camera is right for you.
