Sony Alpha 57 (A57) – Video & 12fps samples

It finally arrived today, the Sony Alpha A57. I was eager to try out the video mode, cant say I’m impressed. The HX9V delivers better than this. Come an, Sony.
The colors are washed out and looks like it barely has 720 lines.

The full clip is available here:

On the other hand, if you want an good DSLR for the family, this camera is a treat. It’s as easy as a point and shoot and does really deliver when it comes to photo quality.
Don’t forget their 12fps with continues focus, perfect for soccer mom’s to use at their kids sports events or the amateur wild life photographer.

Issue: Olympus OM-D – Discolored pixels? (Hot pixels)

Update: Turns out it was a DOA. New one works as it should.

I took the opportunity to try out Olympus OM-D at work today. I was excited to try out the 5-axis image stabilization but came across this odd issue.

Looks like hot pixels or similar, the odd thing is they show up randomly, even in video. Shown below here:

I tried resetting the camera as well as changing lenses. Still the same thing. It doesn’t show on screen while recording.
Am i alone in this?
