The Really Right Stuff L-Plate for Sony A900

The Really Right Stuff L-Plate for Sony A900

Ordered my Sony A900 L-Plate (US$140) from Really Right Stuff last Friday and received it yesterday, nice and fast service (well, US$33.74 shipping, LOL).  Slipped it on today and took some pics.  Initial feeling: nicely built, sturdy and works perfectly when switching from landscape to portrait.  No more resetting the ball head and recomposing.  Well worth it.

The Sirui G-20 BallHead

As for the ballhead, Really Right Stuff’s BH-40 seems to be the best fit but given the US$300+ price tag, too steep for me.  Went down to Sham Shui Po today for a spin and found the Sirui G-20 ballhead for HK$550 (US$70) at Ying Kee, and it worked perfectly.

Had my Sony A900 for 5 days already, still taking my time to figure this new baby out.  Though it much resemblance the A700, there are still some adjustments to be made.  Will post up some test shots later in the week.  Word on the street is that Sony is officially launching the A900 tomorrow in Hong Kong.

Camera labs just posted up a thorough review on the A900, click here for the read.
