Life Updates, Sony A5100, and Some Sony A7s Sample Photos!

Hi everybody and welcome to Sonyalphalab! Have not been around much lately, but we just had a new member of the family born!! A baby boy to be specific and his name is Jase Peter Hermann, Born – 08/12/14 – 7lbs 8.5oz πŸ™‚

So now the family consists Michele and I, Layla, who just turned 4 years old, Jase who is currently 1 week old, and Chubs the dog, who is around 6 years πŸ™‚ More on the family below…

We also have the re-lease of the New Sony Alpha A5100 which is basically the A5000 w/ the A6000 sensor and touchscreen added. It’s extremely light weight and high quality with the 24mp sensor, so Quadcopter users looking to upgrade their HD Cameras should consider this if they demand really high quality. The older 5 series nex cameras are also great for aerial work in particular. The clean HDMI out on the A5100 also makes it great for connecting to transmitting gear or external recording devices.

My New Boy Jase

We were at the hospital for a few days and made it just in time! Michele had the baby just fine with no issues and everybody is perfectly healthy πŸ™‚ He looks so much like Layla it’s amazing to me, but he is a brother so it does make sense. Note the more masculine features, yet Layla face in the side by side. So cool….. I took these all with the Sony A7s and sel35f28 lens.

Closing Remarks

That is about it for now everybody and what you can expect next on SonyAlphaLab is most likely my highly detailed Sony Alpha A7s Review which I am working on now. Unless some crazy announcement is made of course. I got all the A7s photos and video I need, I just have to put it all together now.

After that I was thinking about reviewing the new Zeiss Touit 50mm f/2.8 Macro Lens, and possible the RX100 III. I also have a request for the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens. That is always subject to change, but so far that is what I’m leaning towards.

Please feel free to ask questions and comments below as always.
Have a great day,
Jay
