February 24 2011


If you’re interested in shooting HD video from your DSLR, you’ll want to check out the site below and watch the trailer.  Video has never really been my thing, but what Shane Hurlbut has presented so far looks pretty cool, and may give me some motivation to try and produce something interesting with the Sony A580.  It looks like there will be six educational episodes to watch, coming at one per week, starting on Monday. There’s no cost to view.

I see the NEX-3 is being discontinued in Japan, and likely everywhere else soon.  That’s probably why it’s on sale now (until 3/5/11) with a bunch of freebies like a 4gb card and carrying case, plus free shipping in the US.

The Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 made it to the most popular pages, due to rising interest.  It’s $474 with rebate through April.  Don’t forget the more expensive, but much better built (and wider) Sony CZ 24-70mm F/2.8.
