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™
  • Lock-on Auto Focus
  • Auto Object Framing
  • Quick AF Full HD Movie
  • 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  


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 the money, just get one full-frame camera... 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)

Fix Realtek HD Audio problem

Fix Realtek HD Audio problems
- your headphone does not produce any sound at all , or
- only one speaker of the headphone has audio.



***************
OPTION 1
Solution: Program Files, K-Lite Codec, Tools, Win7DSFilterTweaker

Choose AUDIO OUTPUT




















***************
OPTION 2
If the problem still persists, uninstall Realtek HD Audio. It seems that Realtek 64 bits driver is not really compatible with Windows 7 64 bits.

Control Panel, System, Device Manager, right click Realtek HD Audio, choose Uninstall, choose uninstall its installation files.

Restart your computer. 

Windows 7 will automatically install the default audio driver i.e. High Definition Audio Device.

Adjust the balance for left and right speakers (as follows) if you encounter a problem in which only one speaker produces audio.





***************
OPTION 3
 Control Panel, System, Device Manager, right click HD Audio Device, choose Update Driver Software, browse to the following folder

\0pau08ww\Vista64

Let Windows 7 install Realtek HD Audio  using Vista 64 bits drivers.

***************
OPTION 4
If the problem remains the same, the last option is for you to buy a cheap USB Audio. I guess Realtek Audio is not stable in Windows 7 64 bits. As for me, the problem still happens when I use either MS HD Audio Device or  Realtek HD Audio.

Internet speed and wifi router

Internet speed and wifi router


Many people are confused between the Internet speed and wifi routers.

In short, your Internet speed is the fastest downloading speed available based on your subscription. For example, the fastest Internet speed (fibre broadband) provided by Jaring for businesses is up to 30Mbps (http://www.jaring.my/V2/business/index.cfm?tag=hsi&sub=package).





On the other hand, wifi routers do not increase the speed of your Internet. It just allows you to get the right signal from your physical distance to the wifi router. At the moment, they are three common types of wifi routers for users - 54Mbps, 150Mbps and 300Mbps.  The"biggest" type allows you to get a full signal even if you browse the Internet outside your house. There are also expensive Dual Band Wifi Routers which give coverage up to 900Mbps.


Let's say  that you are subscribed to a Jaring's 30Mbps package. If you get a full signal, you should get up to 30Mbps of Internet speed. If your signal is about 3/4 (below), you should get about 3/4 of the Internet speed (up to 22Mbps). If 10 people are sharing the Internet speed broadcasted by a wifi router at the same time, logically, one user should enjoy up to 2Mbps (below). Both data were captured at my workplace.



Therefore, changing a wifi router from 54Mbps to 300Mbps does not increase the Internet speed. It allows you to get the maximum amount of bandwidth provided by your  Internet Service Provider (ISP).
