  • It's a very relevant point, and something that I do often when I find an image that I find appealing for one reason or another.

    Google Image Search (and to a lesser extent Tineye) are your...

    " I'd ideally like to compare FF SLT vs. 1DX, using the same FOV lenses. Or at least 35mm equiv. FOV on both. Which is impossible right now..."

    You do have the option to test the...

    A high end mic fed through an 8mm mini jack is a bit of an oxymoron in tech... A mini jack connection is always a bottleneck for high end mics. That said, if you don't like the omitted...

  • The file structure is the same in both sony cameras.... it may ask you to rebuild the database, but unlikely unless swapping between brands or between APS-C and Full Frame. The naming scheme will ...
  • I have all the pieces you are asking about. The A7 or A7R perform the same in terms of AF when using the LAEA4 adapter. I do not detect any difference from the same lens mounted on my A77 body... ...
  • Zebra patterns assist in manual iris or aperture control by displaying a striped pattern across highlights above a designated brightness level. Common place in professional video cameras, there are ...
  • I don't have my A7s in front of me right now, so I am not sure if you can use different focus pint modes when enabling a custom key to focus. That said the center point of any camera system is the ...
  • I use PW2 and PW3 in the MI shoe on the A99, RX1R, A7R, and NEX6 without any problems. No TTL option for the TT control units. I also use Profoto Air remote, Bowens Pulsar, or Elinchrom Skyport in ...
  • Look toward that model... slightly less output, and less intuitive interface, but it is a workhorse. I own two F60Ms, F58AM, F43AM, F43M...
  • The colors and contrast from the Zeiss glass is something to be experienced. The shots are often unmistakable when compared side by side with similar focal lengths. The 16-35 is Full Frame (so ...
  • I use the RX1r with Pocket wizard 2, Pocket Wizard 3, when using flashguns, and with studio systems when required like Elinchrom, Profoto, or Bowens lighting. There are lots of options out there, ...
  • Alas you are very right... hard to compare an LCD XGA @ 1.44M to an OLED XGA with 1000 more dots. Definitely makes it brighter and more detailed. The OLED EVF in the A99 is also a noticeable ...
  • When reviewing the shot, cycle through your display options until you see the HDR icon... If the shot was HDR, you will see an icon labelled HDR with an exclamation point on-screen if it was an ...
  • Hate to say it but the adapter connection isn't the best in some situations. My F58AM and my F43AM have detached from my A99 a few times. 90% of the time it is fine, but on a few occasions it was ...

    extended ISO doesn't actually change the base ISO of the camera. Seems great to have, if you enjoy underexposure and blowing out highlight detail. Cool it can go lower, but not a real option if...

    If they made a 50/1.4 planar it would look like... well the A mount Zeiss 50/1.4 planar... which works beautifully on the A7/A7R with the LAEA4. Grip makes that configuration feel beefy and great...

  • The basic differences are these: NEX5 - 14.2Mp, contrast AF, no wifi NEX5N - 16.1Mp, contrast AF, no wifi, improved CMOS for low light, noise suppression improved NEX5R - 16.1Mp, Hybrid AF, Wifi/no ...
  • While the technical data may seem to suggest that these sensors are close to each other, compare the A35 sensor data and it matches better with their findings from the C3 sensor. Comparing to both ...
  • I am not going to argue this with you guys if you have made up your minds... but what I do know is that the 5N is not the same sensor implementation as in the C3 launched around the same time. The ...
