The am­bas­sadors’ re­cep­tion

Amateur Photographer - - Your Letters -

I have just read your field test ar­ti­cle The Big Switch (AP, 29 Septem­ber). I’m cu­ri­ous to know whether the writer, James Ab­bott, is a Sony Am­bas­sador. Per­haps this could be clar­i­fied when writ­ing these ar­ti­cles?

As one of the many want­ing to make the jump to lighter equip­ment, it would be re­ally help­ful to see an ar­ti­cle on the mir­ror­less cam­eras be­ing used for motorsport pho­tog­ra­phy. From what I un­der­stand, they are still not quite there when it comes to high-speed fo­cus­ing? Un­less you count the A9 of course, but that’s way out of my price range. Paul Hyde James isn’t a Sony am­bas­sador. We don’t of­ten run gear-re­lated fea­tures by brand am­bas­sadors in our tech­ni­cal sec­tion, but on the rare oc­ca­sions that we do we al­ways clearly men­tion that they are. It can some­times be use­ful, when they have had ac­cess to a new cam­era be­fore any­one else, to get their per­spec­tive on how it com­pares with the model it is re­plac­ing – Nigel Ather­ton, Editor
