Sony α7 Ⅱ (Alpha 7 2) Part Two: The Beautiful Lovechild of Sony's α7 and Olympus' OMD-EM1 (AkihabaraNews.com)

My take on Sony's latest mirrorless interchangeable lens camera announcement.

The Sony α7 Ⅱ (Alpha 7 Mark 2) has been announced (official vid embedded below), and it’s generating a buzz like no Sony interchangeable lense camera, possibly any Sony stills camera, ever has.
In part, this is due how well they managed to keep it under the radar. With the new stacked sensor announcement and the rumor mill’s fixation on the supposed ‘Pro’ full-frame E-mount that apparently is coming early next year, we were effectively blindsided by the α7 Ⅱ. 
The other big thing, for me at least, is the significance of this camera’s spec list with regards to the inevitable release of the α7R Ⅱ and the α7S Ⅱ sometime over the course of next year, because, as with the original α7, it is the base upon which the next camera I’m likely to buy will be built.
But back to the α7 Ⅱ…

Japan, How It Is - Halloween in Shibuya (Videos)

I was in Shibuya on Halloween Night on my way back from a shoot in Tochigi and I happened to have all my kit with me at the craziest street gathering of the year... SO I shot it.

Part 1 (above) is the quick version to The Living's epic music and part 2 (below is a thirty minute taste of what it's actually like to be in the thick of the beautiful madness that is Tokyo's largest halloween street gathering (impromptu party).

It was a blast. Were my father not visiting at the time I'd have also dressed up and joined the fray... but thats what next year is for I suppose.
