I edited this video with iMovie. You can do some pretty amazing things with this little app. I was inspired by the work of Peter McKinnon. Check out his channel.

I ordered a kit from eBay with the cables and tools required, and this weekend, rolled up … Continue reading Surgery on my Mac

The autofocus system will lock on an eye and track it on a moving subject. This got me thinking, I know I can do Eye AF with the RX100iii but what can the A99ii do?

Still, it’s nice to see my camera considered one of the best … Continue reading Shutterbug named the Sony A99ii “Best DSLR Professional” of the year.
