Use Medium Format Lenses with Sony A7 Cameras

Here is a review of the Kipon Baveyes medium format lens focal reducer adapter for Sony A7 cameras.  This adapter has a lens element that concentrates the medium format image circle down to the size of a 24x36mm sensor of the Sony A7 cameras with a 0.7x factor.  The 80mm lens above has an equivalent focal length of 56mm.  The concentrated light also gives us one stop of extra light.  The f/1.9 is an equivalent f/1.36, a very fast medium format lens. This a manual focus lens adapter.

Nissin i40 Review by Lavikka Photography
Lavikka Photography shows us the features of the compact Nissin i40 flash on the Sony a6000. The best feature is high speed sync in such a small package. The Nissin i40 was used with the inexpensive Youngnou 560 flash, shown below, to freeze action in daylight - up to 1/4000s.

Sony a7ii with 5-Axis SteadyShot (Image Stabilization) Video
Here is the new Sony a7ii with a 5-axis SteadyShot Inside, which means that the sensor can compensate for movement in the pitch, yaw, roll, x-axis, and y-axis. The technology comes from Olympus which Sony has an alliance with after a large investment. The a7ii is about $500 more than the standard a7. The a7ii will be available next month.

New C1 / C2 Buttons
Above shows the added customizable button next to the shutter. There are now 4 customizable buttons instead of 3 on the a7, a7r, and a7s. The body panels of the a7ii looks to be textured compared to the smooth body of the previous a7 cameras. The shutter button moves from the top plate to the grip. The front and rear wheel have a slimmer form factor. There is now a 45° ledge for the Menu and C button on the rear.
