Norway pics on Flickr

There are already some photographs on myFlickr from our recent trip to Norway. Check it out! Here are some of my favorites...

Sony did it!

As mentioned in a preview post Sony released three new cameras today. The Sony A77, NEX-7 & VG20. Click here for all the links to previews, videos, specs and so on...
That's the "next level" for video in "DSLRs/SLTs/Mirrorless" cameras! Canon and Nikon are still sleeping... I'm sure Sony will put this into a fullframe camera in 2012. Exciting times :)

Sony NEX7

Смертельно и невероятно красиво

A random found I was very much inspired by! Google translates the title into "Deadly and incredibly beautiful" - I agree :)

Update: Piti de Lira tells me this is taken from Oceans. Thanks for the info man!

Interview on "The Purity Experience"

Carsten from the The Purity Experience did like my Indonesia movie so much he decided to do a quick interview with me :)

I'm on Google+ now.

Let's connect and put me to some of your circles.
High five!

Sony NEX7 & A77

It's been a while since I posted some tech news but these are hot so I couldn't resist :)
On the 24th of August Sony is about to reveal some exciting new products. The e-mount Sony NEX7 and the a-mount Sony A77 plus some lenses. There is a lot of buzz going on on the internet so I don't want to be too repetitive. Check the links at the end of this post for more information.

Key (video) features among others are:
- AVCHD 2.0
- full HD 1080p at 60/50/25/24p
- full manual control
- 50-16000 ISO
- New 3-way tilting LCD
- three million dot OLED VF

- 1/8000 shutter speed
- 19 point AF system with 11 cross sensors
- 12 FPS (Photo)
- 24 Megapixel sensor

This is the first time Sony is bringing that to the filmmakers. People (on internet discussions) expect image quality across the NEX7 & A77 will be very similar with the FS100 & F3. That would be amazing...
And all this for 1800 Euros (with a 16-50 f2.8 lens included)? I'll believe it when I see it. Maybe it's time to let my trusty hacked GH-1 go... :)
Let's see what the Panasonic GH-3 is coming up with. There are rumors that it will have a global shutter... exciting times :)

Back from Norway

Hi there!
We are back since two days. This was a great road trip! It's sad that we didn't had more time to travel around, there is so much to see & do. Three weeks were just not enough. We drove over 7000km. It's a little bit sad too that we both became sick on the trip, so I couldn't do every hike I wanted and went surfing just once - but whatever, that's the way it is. I got antibiotics and a morphine cough syrup and survived ;) Norway is one of the most beautiful countries I've been to, that's for sure! I will come back!
Lot's of work to do now... First pictures coming soon on my Flickr.
Autumn will be a busy time too - lots of traveling and filming on the ASP Tour for Surf Chronicles. More infos about that soon!

Surfed Norway :)
