Sony a99 high ISO RAW vs JPG Review

Jun 10, 2013 by Paul White

On this article I take my Sony a99 and compare the RAW photos against the JPG photos.  When taking photos with high ISO settings its nice to see how much of the performance is due to the Full Frame Sensor, and how much is due to the camera's built in post processing, DRO and Noise Correction.

Sony Alpha DSLR Focus Problem a900

Sony Alpha DSLR Focus Problem a900

Feb 16, 2012 by Paul White

I recently bought a Sony a900 DSLR off ebay.  The camera is in mint condition, but it had a major issue.  Some of my lenses would not get a focus lock, and the view finder was dark when compared to my a700.  Turns out the problem is a bent aperture arm.  There is a quick and cheap fix for this problem, however I opted to send my a900 in to Sony for a repair that was covered under the warranty.
