Guapísima obra de ingeniería en medio de la nada.

¿ No me digáis que la brexit práctica de hoy no es sencilla ? Es simplemente el titular

En realidad no vale la pena en absoluto, pues ya lo había contado todo, pero yo os lo cuento porque hay una imagen que me ha encantado. La imagen área de una presa de por allí cerca de la ciudad del pecado: Hoover Dam Nevada Desert. Sobre todo me ha encantado el “rebosadero” que hay en la esquina inferior derecha. Es como un gran desagüe por si el “lavabo” se llena de agua. El puentecito acueducto tampoco está mal.

Por cierto, ¿ como puede sobrevivir Las Vegas” justo en medio de “la nada”.

Venga, va, como así el artículo queda poco serio y científico, echo mano a la herramienta más potente de Windows (Control C + Control V) y os pongo aquí esto.

New since the A7 II

  • Two card slots.
  • 10 FPS, up from 5 FPS.
  • Completely silent operation (set this in a menu).
  • ISO 204,800, up from 25,600.
  • Slowest shutter speed fully adjustable and programmable in Auto ISO.
  • Bigger NP-FZ100 battery lasts about 1,500 shots in normal shooting (CIPA rated 610 single shots, or 710 if you use the rear LCD).
  • 4K video.
  • New thumb-nubbin controller on rear.
  • Touch screen, but only for AF point selection.
  • Ability to shoot-through flickering lighting.
  • Two separate AEL and AF-ON buttons, instead of just one button with a selector lever as on A7RII, A7SII, A7II and A7.
  • C3 button moved to left side of camera; it’s on the right on A7RII, A7SII, A7II and A7.
  • Higher resolution electronic viewfinder.
  • In-camera 5-axis sensor-shift stabilization now claims 5.5 stops improvement.
  • 14-bit raw.
  • Shoots 4K video using the entire 36mm width of the image sensor.
  • Uncompressed 4K HDMI output.
  • XAVC S high-bitrate video formats for 60~100 MBPS video.
  • Under- and over-crank video from 1 FPS to 120 FPS, MOS (without sound).


  • Completely silent in Silent Mode, but this mode isn’t on by default. See How to Set Silent Mode.
  • Two card slots.
  • Magnificent electronic finder: always big, bright, sharp and wonderful in any light. Super-bright in daylight, and dims perfectly indoors and at night.
  • Hybrid AF system uses phase-detection for speed and contrast detection for ultimate precision and accuracy.
  • Battery life seems almost unlimited.
  • Solid mostly metal construction.
  • Even the regular mechanical shutter only moves at the ends of exposures. There’s never any need for a special vibration-free mode; it always works this way. Suck on that, LEICA!
  • Excellent high ISO performance.
  • Facial recognition works well, but only after you find it and turn it on.
  • In-finder 2-axis level works great for keeping horizons and vertical lines as they should be.
  • In-camera, as-shot automatic lens vignetting, lateral chromatic aberration and distortion correction.
  • Almost any lens of any brand or age can be adapted to work – but with no lens corrections.
  • Stereo microphone built-in.
  • 3.5mm powered mic and headphone jacks.
  • Can extract stills from video, in-camera after it’s shot. In other words, shoot 4K video and you can pull-out 8MP stills shot at 30 FPS.
  • Bluetooth & NFC.


  • If you set it to record to two cards simultaneously as I do for backup, it locks-up and won’t shoot if you remove either card or either card fills or has an error. It should just shoot to either card that has space, not leave you dead in the water if one dies; that’s the whole point of this mode.


  • Silent electronic shutter is a game-changer, but won’t work with flash. Flash sync speed is still only 1/250.
  • No built-in flash.
  • No auto brightness control for the rear LCD (but great auto brightness control for the electronic finder).
  • No “3” position on the Mode dial for the third memory recall; instead this position is a SCN mode that’s not on the A9 or A7R III.
  • No Mode dial lock (good!).
  • No GPS, but a free app may let it tag from your phone.
  • No shutter speed dial.
  • No ISO dial.
  • No square, 4:5 or 4:3 crops; 16:9 only.
  • No way to back up the complete camera state as Nikons can do.
  • Touch screen lets you select movie focus areas, but doesn’t work for setting the camera in the menu screens or do much of anything else.
  • No more swept panoramas (an iPhone does this better anyway).

¿ A que así queda mucho mejor, no ?

  • Ken Rockwell, o se ha comprado una avioneta o helicóptero, o ha alquilado uno.

Episodios anteriores: todo eso, sin actualizar, ya os lo conté en su día aquí: Ftc 28-2-2018
