Sony DSLT A58 with ND Variable Filter

Testing Sony DSLT A58  and SAL50f18 with Steinhesier MC UV Filter and Jlens ND Variable Filter (ND2-ND400). I didn't edit the photos. I only added my watermarks and resized from 20MP to 2MP. Just click the photos to view them at 2MP.

Note: I normally use 1/160 or 1/250 shutter speed because it is the highest sync speed for an add-on external flash. However, I didn't use flash in the following tests.


1/160, f/1.8, ISO100, MCUV + ND2 (Min)




1/160, f/1.8, ISO100, MCUV + unknown ND (adjusted)

Solution to Shockwave Flash crashes in Firefox





Solution to Adobe Shockwave Flash crashes in Firefox

1) Close all Firefox browsers.

2) Uninstall Flash from the Add / Remove Programs in Control Panel.

3) Download the Adobe Flash Extended support release from halfway down this page.

Flash extended support release ( http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html )
The extended support release has all the security updates of the newest release but with a far higher compatibility level with Firefox.

Note: When installing, make sure you unselect automatic updates; otherwise, it will be overwritten with the newest version.

4) Restart Firefox and you are all done.

Reasons why I choose Sony-DSLT A58

Reasons why I choose Sony-DSLT A58
_________________________________
Many photogs asked me why I didn't buy Nikon or Canon cameras. I just smiled. I didn't want to give any response at all.

Well... maybe I'm a Sony fan boy... really? Definitely, that is not the not reason.


TECHNOLOGIES in SONY DSLTS

Do you know that I only use the entry level camera i.e. Sony-DSLT A58?  For your information, Sony is a very smart innovator. It does not have many dslr-shaped cameras. Nikon and Canon has so many cameras. I didn't say that it is bad. It is just that I always 'get confused' whenever I go to a Canon store. As at today (21.9.2014), Sony has the following gorgeous dslts based on your budget:
a) A58 - entry level (I can only afford this camera hehehe)
b) A77 - mid-range
c) A99 - full frame for professional

Even though I only use the entry level camera, 98% of photos that I shoot are sharp and clear... hahaha... In other words, if I shoot 500 photos at a motor show event, almost 490 photos are sharp and clear.  In fact, even the faces of the models are sharp. 

Can you do that with an entry level Canon/Nikon DSLR? Ask yourself the question.

Some of key features of A58:
  • 20.1-megapixel Exmor™ APS HD CMOS Sensor
  • High-resolution, High-contrast OLED Tru-Finder™
  • Electronic View Finder (EVF)
  • Lock-on Auto Focus
  • Auto Object Framing
  • Quick AF Full HD Movie (click)
  • 15-point AF System with 3 Cross Sensors
  • 8fps burst shooting 
  • Clear Image Zoom (Digital)
  • Multi-frame noise reduction (watch the video)
  • 15 picture effects
  • 700-1000 photos per battery NP-FM500H  

The Lock-on AF function allows you to lock a person and the focus point follows the person when he/she moves in the frame. Wow!!! You can even close your eyes and shoot hehehe.... It is very useful for capturing fast events like sports, fashion shows or dances.





Another reason is High-contrast OLED Tru-Finder. It actually allows you to view (real-time preview) the final photo before you take the photo. WYSIWYG!!!




Again, can you do "these things" with an entry level DSLR from Canon or Nikon? Ask yourself the question.

Difficult to mention all amazing technologies in Sony-DSLT A58. Just explore by yourself so that you would do like me (I just said WOW!) when I first tried the camera at a Sony store.  : http://www.sony.com.my/product/slt-a58y  


Picture effects: http://www.sony.com.my/ilc-camera/feature/Why-Choose-an-Amount-Camera/486082




Finally, I have nothing against Canon, Nikon, Olympus and others. I have used two Nikon compact cameras before this. No problem at all. Well.. if you have the money, just get one full-frame camera like A99... if you have a lot of money, just get Hasselblad H5D-60 hehehe (http://www.hasselbladusa.com/products/h-system/h5d-60-.aspx , http://www.amazon.com/Hasselblad-H5D-60-Medium-Format-Camera/dp/B00CX7JRP2)
