  • thank you everyone for the suggestions and links.   yeah i guess 35 isn[r really wide angle - i am so used to shooting with my 200m that 35m seems vey wide angle.  i also have the 50m (the cheaper ...
  • sorry i am using an a77.
  • Created discussions wide angle lens
    i want to purchase a wide angle lens, maybe a 35m. i was looking on dxomark.com reading their reviews and maybe i am reading it all wrong, or filtering it wrong but the sony lens don't seem to be ...
  • i am so ready to shoot some moving subjects now.  i usually shoot with spot or center weighted so i am used to that much.  i have been shooting still subjects day so i am really eager to try my ...
  • i think i have it now, finally, except object tracking which i don't think that would be too implicated.  i am hoping i can get some tack sharp photos.  i have a lot of soft ones.  the a77 seems ...
  • ok i am now focusing with the shutter and i changed the AF/MF button to object tracking. i have never used that before.  do you use continuous with that?  AF-C?   i need a book with all the ...
  • thank you so much glenn for all of your help and explanations!  that makes better since.  i think i am just going to use the shutter the other way and not BBF.  too much involved with the sony.  i ...
  • hi glenn,  my sister is a canon (well whole family actually) anyway she uses BBF.  when we are all together with her grandkids she will hit her button (BBF) and it locks focus and stays.  she ...
  • thank you glenn for helping me with this.  last night i was so turned around.  this morning i am going to look at it again with a fresh mind.  hopefully i can get it right.
  • i don't have a AF lock button.  i can set the AF/MF button to AF-LOCK which is what i have it on... is that what you are referring to?   thank you again, maybe i will get there lol,
  • thank you for all you help. everyone says they used BBF with ease but for some reason i cannot get it set up. i am happy though that the focus IS working even if i do have to hold 2 buttons. BUT i ...
  • guess what i am trying to say is, i want it where i focus (any button needed to focus) then i press a button to lock it in then let off that button and then i can recompose and it will still be ...
  • yeah glenn i agree.  been shooting with the 77 for over a year and still learning...
  • ok, here is the way it is.. shutter is on and AF/MF is on HOLD.  i tried turning the shutter off and either way i have to hold the AF/MF down to keep the green light on.  what is the point of ...
  • thanks glenn.  what do i need to change it to?  i wanted to BBF but i don't want to hold 2 buttons.  so if i focus with shutter=halfway can i then press the AF/MF to HOLD the focus?
  • thanks glenn, i see what you are saying but i am keeping the shutter half-way down.  i have to ALSO hold the af/mf button at the same time to keep it on.  if i hold the shutter half-way and let ...
  • it is a77.  i just noticed if i hold the shutter half-way while holding the af/mf button it stays on but if i let off the af/mf button it goes away.
  • yes steady shot is on.
  • now i am really worried.  it never stays on.  i have tried it in all AF-C, AF-S, AF-A and MF.  i have tried different lens too, sony kit lens and tamron 90m and tamron 28-75.  the sony is 55-200 ...
  • thank you everyone for the post.  i have been using the joystick to BBF and i get the green dot without the ((())).  changed back to shutter to focus and same thing.  the thing that concerns me is ...
