Sony offers this bright optical viewfinder for the 16mm pancake lens as an aid for people that don’t like using the LCD in bright sunlight, or other reasons I suppose. The FDA-SV1 is part of the ‘smart accessory terminal’ system that currently includes the new EVF and two flashes.
This viewfinder is only for the 16mm F/2.8 lens, and will not provide the right field of view when using any other lens, or the two converters for the 16mm F/2.8 lens.
There isn’t much to this item, but check it out if you have nothing else better to do.Read More →
I’m going to jump right on the G1X with some samples and initial thoughts (tomorrow) as there was a mix-up of sorts. The camera came in at least several days to a week ago, and the people in the office forgot to tell me when UPS delivered it, plus, B&H forgot to let me know it was on the way, so technically I’ve had it a week already, and of course I can’t keep it forever.
I’ve been wanting to review the accessories for the 16mm pancake lens for quite a while now. I plan on doing some comps with other lenses to see how well the adapters hold up when you look closely, that should be interesting! I also have the accessory optical viewfinder for people that use the 16mm lens a lot outside.
So this is what’s coming up for review in the month of March; stay tuned!Read More →
