① memo 20180627 ~ Dolly ~ The first film by this 7-year-old girl made June 2009 around Alphen , Holland , includes this nice dolly shot in a shopping cart, using the little Sony DSC-T10 (in the Sports Pack SPK-THC) for protection.
① memo 20180530 ~ Chasing Barracudas ~ Dive #55 (with a leaking regulator) on May 21 , 2006 , filming with the small Sony DSC-T1 camera between 7-18 meters at the Andrea 1 dive site in Bonaire , Caribbean Netherlands
① memo 20180518 ~ Breitner’s Box Camera ~ Paint-splattered box camera used by the Dutch painter and photographer George Breitner. Filmed at ‘Photography’ exhibition April 2010, The Hague Museum of Photography. Holland.
This Guy’s Edison-Camera is from around 1900 and in the special collection of Leiden University.
① memo 20180411 ~ Sony A7 III Sensor Problem Blinking Line ~ [ See April 16th update below* ] The blinking line is showing bottom line left (below the 8 of the date 20180411) – the same spot reported by others (see below). This is private video test footage in which I first found that ‘blinking line’. A clip shot the first day trying the camera, after I bought it March 12, 2018. The blinking line shows up , when full frame filming with my Sony A7 III ( ILCE-7M3 ). Apparently a sensor glitch, that disappears and later returns. I detected this when youtube user ‘biscuitsalive’ reported this March 21 here https://youtu.be/XUx9Q6Tev9g
. I did not notice this problem before , because I used the camera mostly in ‘crop’ mode. That user reported a fix the same day (changing the camera date) that was reported no permanent fix … He informed Sony UK. No answer yet. I reported in his comments. I still have that problem (did not try that date reset method). I informed Sony NL today , via my camera dealer. It seems this affected a lot of people in different countries. Waiting for a ? firmware fix , or a new camera when a hopefully ‘clean’ batch arrives in Holland.
*Sony Dealer-support update [ April 16 , 2018 update via my dutch retailer from Sony Dealer support] .
** A firmware update is coming up for this , in the coming weeks. This solves the problem. **
① memo 20180315 ~ Sensor ~ First shot yesterday with a new Sony Alpha A7 mark III camera , inspecting the sensor for dust over the blue sky, and focussing on some clouds – using a Sony FE 55mm F/1.8 prime lens at F11 with continuous autofocus. Later that day of testing and customizing this camera , I learned this new camera’s image quality probably equals the quality in low light of my Sony A7S mark II camera (with the Sony FE 28mm F2 prime lens) , and with a far better focussing experience with this camera/lens combination – accurate portrait auto focussing in the dark – a delight to use !
① memo 20180205 ~ Speed Camera ~ “What are you doing … speed control ? Do I drive too fast?
I have my little tripod-mounted silvery Canon HV20 camcorder right beside the cross-country skiing trail around Seefeld winter 2008 , and the frolic lady reacts (German) “Was machen Sie da , Geschwindigheidskontrolle ? Fahr Ich zu schnell ?”
