It’s a steal

From wine to perfumes, products during a Kempegowda International Airport are significantly cheaper than during many marquee general airports

Anirban Dutta Chowdhury (35) Country Head, Nuance Group
Anirban Dutta Chowdhury recalls
An occurrence in 2009 when his staff had to meddle during a distracted evidence between an Indian couple who had usually landed during a Bangalore International Airport and had done their approach to a duty-free shops. The wife, Chowdhury says, was mad with her father for offered a Sony digital camera in Dubai duty-free, most opposite her advice. She kept yelling, “I told we it was obtuse in Bangalore.” It was indeed $50 cheaper. “Not too many people are wakeful that the product accessible here cost during slightest $5 – $15 obtuse than Dubai and Singapore,” confirms Chowdhury.
Chowdhury is a nation conduct for Nuance Group, one of world’s largest dilettante duty-free operators. The Zurich headquartered organisation sealed a agreement with Bangalore International Airport Limited in 2008 and renewed it in 2013 for another 5 years. They also have a 10-year agreement with a Chatrapathi Shivaji International Airport (lifestyle and luxury).About 180 sales staff and 35 corporate executives safeguard a well-spoken operation of a duty-free shops during KIA — generally during a rise hours (from 11 pm to 3 am). The duty-free offered area in Bangalore is a 7,000 sqft swanky space (the stores during a ‘arrivals’ territory have been organic given Feb this year and a ones during ‘departures’ will be prepared in 120 days). “When we were removing a arrivals territory designed, my co-worker from Zurich suggested me not to make it over-the-top given it can dominate buyers,” says Chowdhury. The chocolate-tasting opposite here called Maitre Chocolotier was usually a fourth designation in a universe when they began in 2008 and a staff during this opposite is lerned during a Lindt and Sprungli domicile in Dubai. According to him, a Zurich duty-free, operated by Nuance, is a best in a world.
Money matters
Eighty per cent of a sell sole in Bangalore is identical to stores opposite a world, though their pricing is a steal. For instance, Johnnie Walker ECC (The Gold Route) 100 cl costs $95 in Bangalore duty-free while it costs $105 in Dubai duty-free. The Ron Zacapa Centenario XO Rum 75cl costs $ 87 as against to $98.89 in Dubai. Similarly, some of a fastest-moving brands such as Glenfiddich, Jack Daniels and Dewars White Label, too, are cheaper. Perfumes and cosmetics are cheaper by $10 – $15.
Hit and miss
The duty-free works differently from a unchanging shops. Unlike other retailers, they buy their batch from tellurian brands on a one-year bond with no-return policy. In box a products are not sole within a year, a products are put adult for ‘discounted sale’. “If it’s still not sole afterwards we have to compensate avocation to a etiquette and destroy it underneath etiquette supervision,” Chowdhury explains. That’s hasn’t happened yet. But, they did have a “situation”. Their conform store Cocoon with sell from general brands — Dunhill, Freywille jewellery, Longchamp bags, Lacoste T-shirts, Mont Blanc pens — unsuccessful to take off. “In 6 months we knew we had to close it,” Chowdhury recalls. “Most of a products had to be given divided for ignored rates or for giveaway along with each $20 purchase.” The store has been revamped and is now called Taste of India, a commemoration shop.

Arrival gate
It takes anywhere between 80 days to 6 months for a products to arrive from opposite a globe. “With Jack Daniels whisky, one of a top offered products in Bangalore, we always need to be warning about replenishing a stock. An programmed routine creates note of a sales being done and accordingly places an order. Shipping from US takes 6 months, and afterwards it is stocked with customs.”

Navigating Duty-Free
Chowdhury says it’s best to start with perfumeries and cosmetics if we have singular movement time. If we are picking it adult for someone else, “you also spend a lot of time. Usually in a box of liquor, one would know what to buy,” he says.

Interesting trends
»When champagne was initial introduced in a Bangalore duty-free, there were frequency any buyers. They had to take it off a shelf. In 2013, going by a few inquires for champagne, they re-introduced it and given afterwards champagne has been one of a hottest buys. People are open to offered high-end brands such as Moet and Chandon, Dom Perignon Vintage, Krug, Taittinger and Ruinart. The cost varies between $55 to $300.
»40 to 70 per cent income generated during duty-free comes from wine sales. Worldwide about 15 per cent of that comes from singular malt. However, in Bangalore, a income generated by singular malt alone is 23 per cent.
»The Indian Barbie dolls, dressed in normal Indian attire, are a outrageous strike among unfamiliar tourists.

Zudem werden Erwartungen in Richtung höherer Modelle wie A6000 oder A7000 geweckt. Denn preislich ist die A5000 inklusive Kit-Objektiv 16–50 mm in der Region der NEX-5T angesiedelt und kostet etwa soviel wie das NEX-Einsteigermodell 3N bei seiner Einführung: 450 Euro.

Gehäuse Monitor

Das Gehäuse der Sony A5000 besteht komplett aus Kunststoff, ist aber ordentlich verarbeitet und liegt aufgrund der markanten Gehäuseauswölbung tummy in der Hand. Die Oberflächenbeschichtung könnte zwar einen Tick griffiger sein; aufgrund des geringen Gewichts der Kamera – rund 265 g inklusive Akku und Speicherkarte (380 g mit Standardzoom) – disorder male dies aber nicht wirklich kritisieren.

Ein Blitzgerät ist eingebaut; ein integrierter Gelenkmechanismus sorgt beim Ausklappen dafür, dass sich der Blitzreflektor etwa 5 cm über die optische Achse erhebt und zudem ein Stück vor das Gehäuse gerückt wird. So wird die Gefahr roter Augen bei Porträts ebenso reduziert wie die Wahrscheinlichkeit von Vignettierungen bei kurzen Brennweiten.

Back: Am 3-Zoll-Monitor, der quick die gesamte Höhe des Gehäuses abdeckt, wird die Miniaturisierung augenfällig. Das kleine Griffstück für basement Daumen ist etwas zu rutschig. Die Richtungstasten des 4-Wege-Schalters lassen sich mit verschiedenen Funktionen belegen; die Beschriftung bezieht sich auf die Standardeinstellung ab Werk.

Der eingebaute 3-Zoll-Monitor bietet eine Auflösung von 153.600 RGB-Bildpunkten, was dem Stand der NEX-3 entspricht; ab NEX-5T bekommt male einen TFT-Monitor mit der doppelten Auflösung geboten. Der Monitor lässt sich aus dem Gehäuse klappen und bis zur Senkrechten nach oben schwenken, sodass auch Selbstporträts mit Sichtkontrolle möglich werden.

Will male allerdings beim Über-Kopf-Fotografieren das Live-Bild nicht aus basement Augen verlieren, disorder male die Kamera auf basement Kopf stellen. Ein elektronischer Sucher ist nicht vorhanden und lässt sich auch nicht nachrüsten. Hier lohnt sich das Warten auf die bereits angekündigte A6000.

Autofokus Belichtung

Anders als höhere NEX-Modelle ab 5T verfügt die Kamera nicht über einen Hybrid-AF, sondern begnügt sich wie die NEX-3 mit einem Kontrast-AF am Sensor mit 25 Messzonen. Die Auslöseverzögerung inklusive AF-Zeit ist mit 0,36/0,50 s bei 1000/30 Lux akzeptabel, bleibt aber hinter dem aktuell Machbaren deutlich zurück.

Die Movie-Taste liegt, tummy erreichbar fr basement Daumen, rechts an der abgeschrgten Oberkante des Gehuses. Auf der gegenberliegenden Seite findet sich die Entriegelungstaste fr basement Ausklappblitz.

Die Movie-Taste liegt, tummy erreichbar für basement Daumen, rechts an der abgeschrägten Oberkante des Gehäuses. Auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite findet sich die Entriegelungstaste für basement Ausklappblitz.

Zur AF-Feld-Konfiguration bietet die Kamera folgende Optionen: Breit (größtmögliche AF-Abdeckung), Feld (verschiebbare AF-Feld-Gruppe), Mitte (zentraler Spot-AF) und Flexible Spot (verschiebbares AF-Feld in drei wählbaren Größen). Als Fokusmodi stehen AF-S (Einzel-AF), AF-C (kontinuierlicher AF) und DMF (Direkt. Manuelf.) bereit; im letztgenannten Fall ist ein manueller Override des Autofokus möglich, während der Auslöser halb durchgedrückt bleibt.

Der Einstellring des Kit-Motorzooms 3,5–5,6/16–50 mm mit optischem Bildstabilisator (OSS) shawl eine Doppelfunktion: Beim manuellen Fokussieren dient er ausschließlich zum Scharfstellen, während die eingestellte Entfernung an einer Balkenskala im Monitor angezeigt wird; die Brennweite variiert male dann mit der Zoomwippe am Objektiv.

Beim Autofokus-Betrieb kann male wahlweise basement Einstellring oder die Schaltwippe zum Zoomen verwenden. Zusätzlich befindet sich eine Zoomwippe am Kameraauslöser. In jedem Fall fehlt aber ein echter manueller Zoomring. Stattdessen stellt ein Motor die Brennweite ein, was Zeit kostet und weniger präzise ist.

Zur Belichtungsmessung steht der Sony A5000 ein 1200-Zonen-Bewertungssystem zur Verfügung; zur Wahl stehen Matrixmessung, mittenbetonte und Spotmessung. Der elektronisch gesteuerte, vertikal ablaufende Schlitzverschluss ermöglicht Verschlusszeiten zwischen 1/4000 und 30 s; die Blitzsynchronzeit beträgt 1/160 s. Die Sensorempfindlichkeit lässt sich bis ISO 16 000 einstellen.



Zoom: Das Motorzoom wird entweder ber basement geriffelten Drehring bedient oder  wenn der Einstellring zum manuellen Fokussieren gebraucht wird  ber basement Schiebeschalter (W/T) an der Seite. In der Seitenansicht wirkt die Kamera mit dem Kit-Zoom 1650 mm wie aus einem Guss.

Zoom: Das Motorzoom wird entweder über basement geriffelten Drehring bedient oder – wenn der Einstellring zum manuellen Fokussieren gebraucht wird – über basement Schiebeschalter (W/T) an der Seite. In der Seitenansicht wirkt die Kamera mit dem Kit-Zoom 16–50 mm wie aus einem Guss.

Ein Blick in das Aufnahmemenü unter „Aufn.-Modus“ zeigt, dass die Sony A5000 das komplette Repertoire an Belichtungsprogrammen beherrscht: Programm-, Blenden-, Zeitautomatik, ergänzt durch neun Motivprogramme (Scenes) und manuelle Einstellung; auch Schwenkpanorama fehlt nicht. Im Filmmodus, mit maximal 1920 x 1080 Pixel und 50 Vollbildern/s, kann male zwischen vier Voreinstellungen wählen: Programmautomatik, Blendenpriorität, Zeitpriorität und manueller Belichtung.

Gestartet wird die Videoaufnahme mittels Movie-Taste rechts unterhalb des Auslösers. Belichtungsreihen sind im Einzel- und Serienbildmodus, jeweils mit bis zu 3 EV-Stufen Spreizung, möglich. Auch lässt sich das Braketing auf Weißabgleich und DRO (Dynamikoptimierung) ausdehnen. HDR-Aufnahmen realisiert die Kamera mit drei Bildern und mit 1 bis 6 EV-Stufen Spreizung. Das Serienbildtempo ist mit 2,3 B/s eher gemächlich, die Einschaltverzögerung mit 4,3 s zu lang.

Bedienung WiFi-Funktionen

Anders als höhere NEX- bzw. Alpha-Modelle ist die Sony A5000 spärlich mit Bedienelementen bestückt: Es gibt nur ein Einstellrad an der Rückseite, das gleichzeitig als 4-Wege-Schalter mit integrierter Bestätigungstaste dient; ein Schnelleinstellmenü sucht male ebenso vergebens wie eine dedizierte Funktionstaste.

Monitor: Der Monitor lässt sich um eine Achse verschwenken und zwar bis in die Senkrechte – so lassen sich auch Selbstporträts bei gleichzeitiger Bildkontrolle realisieren.

Allerdings lassen sich die Richtungstasten am 4-Wege-Schalter inklusive der Mitteltaste zum Aufrufen von Funktionen bzw. der dazugehörigen Einstellmenüs verwenden; in Standardeinstellung ruft die Links-Taste das Bildfolge-Menü auf, rechts geht’s zur ISO-Einstellung und nach oben, wenn male die Monitoranzeigen variieren will.

Drückt male die Unten-Taste, so zeigt sich die Belichtungskorrekturskala, an der sich ein Korrekturwert in Drittelstufen einstellen lässt – wahlweise mit basement Links-Rechts-Tasten oder dem Einstellrad. Die Fragezeichen- Taste ruft Hilfstexte zu Motivkategorien (Porträt, Landschaft, Nachtszenen, Nahaufnahmen, Bewegung) und dazugehörigen Kameraeinstellungen auf. Alle genannten Tasten lassen sich bei Bedarf aber auch mit anderen Funktionen belegen (Menüpunkt „Key-Benutzereinstlg.“).

Tipp: Legen Sie z.B. die Blitzlichtkompensation auf die Mitteltaste des 4-Wege-Schalters oder auf die Fragezeichen-Taste, denn diese Funktion benötigt male beim Aufhellblitzen häufiger. Die Fülle an Einstell- und Anpassungsmöglichkeiten ist für ein Einsteigermodell beträchtlich. Den sechs Karteireitern am oberen Bildschirmrand – Kamera-, Benutzer- und Drahtloseinstellungen, Applikations-, Wiedergabe- und System- Einstellungen – sind 20 Menüseiten zugeordnet, die male mittels Pfeil-links/ rechts-Tasten oder Einstellrad durchsteppt, um zur gewünschten Funktion zu gelangen.

Vertikales Scrollen ist allerdings unnötig; pro Seite sind maximal sechs Einträge auf einen Blick zu sehen. Mit integrierter WiFi-Funktionalität ist die Sony Alpha 5000 auf der Höhe der Zeit. So können Sie sich mit der Kamera in ein WLAN-Netzwerk einwählen und über das „Sony Entertainment Network“ different Applikationen downloaden, mit denen sich die Kamerafunktionalität erweitern lässt. Kostenfrei sind z.B. die Apps „Fotoretusche“, „Bildeffekt+“ oder „Direktes Hochladen“ (auf Facebook), nicht aber „Mehrfachbelichtung“ (4,99 €), „Objektivkompensation“ oder „Zeitraffer“ (jeweils 9,99 €).

Um eine WLAN-Verbindung zwischen Sony A5000 und einem Smartphone oder Tablet herzustellen, disorder dort „PlayMemories Mobile“ installiert sein. NFC-fähige Smartphones oder Tablets bauen die Verbindung durch Berühren mit der Kamera auf. Anschließend lassen sich Bilddateien oder MP4-Videos austauschen. Per „Smart Remote Control“ wird das Smartphone zum Fernauslöser mit Live-Bild-Anzeige; ein eingeblendeter Schieberegler ermöglicht Belichtungskorrekturen.

Dead Leaves, Sony Alpha 5000


Dead Leaves


Die Dead-Leaves-Kurven verlaufen bei ISO 100/400 auf sehr hohem, bei ISO 800 noch immer auf hohem Niveau, wobei die Kurven nur moderat über basement Ausgangskontrast des Motivs (1,0) ansteigen, andere Sony-Kameras wie die NEX-7 sind deutlich aggressiver abgestimmt.

Auflsung, Sony Alpha 5000


Auflösung


Die Auflösung erreicht das Maximum von rund 1600 LP/ BH bei ISO 100/400; die Kurven laufen hier nahezu deckungsgleich. Auch bei ISO 800 und 1600 werden quick 1600 LP/BH erreicht, bei ISO 3200 knapp 1500 LP/BH. Erst bei ISO 6400 geht’s deutlicher abwärts.

Rauschwahrnehmung (Visual Noise), Sony Alpha 5000


Rauschwahrnehmung (Visual Noise)


Das Rauschen bleibt bis ISO 3200 auf einem erfreulich niedrigen Niveau (VN 0,5 bis 1,0) und bis ISO 6400 (VN 1,3) akzeptabel. Ab ISO 1600 aber geht die Bildbearbeitung in die Vollen; die Feinzeichnung geht zurück, und Strukturen wirken teilweise wie aquarelliert.

Bildqualität

Die Sony A5000 kombiniert einen 20- Megapixel-CMOS mit dem Bionz-X-Bildprozessor, der auch bei der Alpha 7/7R zum Einsatz kommt. Damit erreicht die Kamera eine konstant hohe Grenzauflösung zwischen ISO 100 und 1600, im Mittel rund 1600 LP/BH. Die Dead-Leaves-Werte verlaufen bis ISO 800 auf einem sehr hohen Niveau zwischen 1400 LP/BH und 1322 LP/BH, um dann in größeren Stufen auf 1082 LP/BH (ISO 1600), 614 LP/BH (ISO 3200) und 461 LP/BH (ISO 6400) abzufallen.

Die Texturverluste sind bis ISO 800 moderat (maximal 0,5), steigen aber ab ISO 1600 (1,1) und ISO 3200 (2,5) sheer an. Beim Rauschen hält sich die Kamera bis ISO 3200 (VN 1,0) angenehm zurück; die Dynamik sinkt erst bei ISO 6400 unter 9 Blenden. Alles in allem sind die Bildergebnisse bis ISO 800 tummy bis sehr gut, ab ISO 1600 werden deutliche, ab ISO 3200 large Eingriffe in die Feinzeichnung sichtbar. Hauttöne wirken durch die Bank etwas blass.

Testfazit

Die Sony A5000 folgt dem Motto „small is beautiful“; kleiner kann male ein APS-C-Modell kaum noch bauen. In Verbindung mit dem kompakten Kit-Objektiv 16–50 mm empfiehlt sie sich als ideale Immer-dabei-Kamera, die um Klassen bessere Bilder liefert als eine digitale Kompaktkamera mit Mini-Sensor.

Smartphone-affine Fotografen dürften sich über WiFi-Funktionalität und App-Erweiterungen freuen; ein elektronischer Sucher wird ihnen vielleicht weniger fehlen als ein Touchscreen.

Noch mehr Funktionen und Ausstattung wird die A6000 bieten: mit elektronischem Sucher, 24-Megapixel-Sensor und angeblich weltweit schnellstem Autofokus in einer spiegellosen Systemkamera.
