January 10 2011


So the 2011 CES is over, and now we have 11 more boring Sony point and shoot cameras to choose from.  Sony made no mention of any new real cameras, I guess we’ll have to wait for the 2011 PMA show in September for any new announcements, then, just maybe, we can look forward to a new A700 replacement by this time next year right?…Wrong, that would be a big negatory Sony!

In defense of Sony.  If Sony is making some handsome profits from the huge selling NEX and SLT systems, why should they wast time on the development of an intermediate DSLR, which probably isn’t going to generate big sales or profits.  I don’t blame Sony for it, they’re in the business of making things people want to buy, in very large quantities.  I simply wish they would hand off their traditional DSLR system to someone else that desires to further refine and promote it.  Is that too much to ask for?

On a lighter note; I’m working on the Minolta/Sony off-camera flash compatibility guide using Radio Poppers, and general flash use.  I’m going to do it in segments, so maybe I can get some feedback from people and let that guide the final outcome.
