Expanded HDR potential for the NEX-7!

Check out the Sony NEX-7 Review page to see what the new firmware can do! Basically, it gives you expanded auto-bracketing range from -3.0 EV to +3.0 EV – very cool.

Nikon and Canon Firmware

Why doesn’t Nikon or Canon release new firmware to give people more options for autobracketing? It’s confusing… I don’t think that those of us that enjoy HDR are such edge-cases any more, right? So hurry up, Nikon and Canon — take some notes from what Sony is doing here!

Daily Photo – The Swirling Seashore

Every now and then you see some rocks along the coast that are not smooth, but covered with moss and clinging vegetation. It’s kind of strange how nearby rocks are worn smooth and slick, while others, like this one below, look like they could be in some deep jungle freshwater river.

    so beautiful Trey – is this in Virgin Gorda?

  • I agree about the firmware thing. I also think they must go one step further, open up the API.

    In that direction, I’ve come to rely on the “hacked framework” Magic Lantern for my Canon. If people can do that when they don’t have information and are working blind, just imagine when they are working with all the tools!

    Anyway. Awesome pic, as usual 😀

    Trey,I agree with you on the firmware,they are not really taking there clients into consideration,it’s come to greed as in sales marketing. Sad but true. Like the pic,cannot wait to get home to do my processing. Nice to have all the tools when travelling but weight is the problem. Missed a few days on your blog ,was out shooting Hong Kong from 0630 to 2130 and just collapse on return to tired to do anything.

  • Wow, beautiful photo, Trey!!! Thanks so much for sharing. Have a wonderful Tuesday, mf!!

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thanks! 🙂

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Hi Trey – note that the new Nikon D600 does allow +-3 stops bracketing (still only 3 shots however)
