My Gear

Because in a “battle” you must go with your “weapons”, so… i will show you the equipment I use for photography. As you will see below, most of my equipment is SONY. This does not mean that is the best…  I use SONY and that’s it. Who knows tomorrow …

I just got my Sony A7, and I’m impressed. First I’m impressed because it is very, very well made, almost completely made of metal with engraved markings — even better made than the $7,500 LEICA M typ 240 with its plastic made-in-China EVF2 electronic finder!  I’m also impressed in how easy it is to figure out on its own (the manuals are useless, but Sony knows no one reads them anyway), and how great the photos look at default settings. Auto white balance and color rendition seem much improved over previous Sonys like the A99 and RX1.  The A7 is as nicely made as the RX1, and much nicer than the plasticy A99.  It’s such a beautiful, well-made and compact camera that my son Ryan and even my wife just want to pick it up and start shooting with it.  Lo and behold, with the $350 LA-E4 adapter I can also use my Sony Alpha and Minolta MAXXUM lenses with full data, control and fast autofocus!
