  • My daughter is 10 and has been shooting with me using my old gear since she was 7.  I too would recommend a kit zoom instead of a prime. I have Sony gear so my daughter uses my old Sony gear.  If I ...
  • Very possible.  I will have to check that out some night and see if I can dial it in some.
  • Darned if I know what they are good for... but this thread got me thinking about a couple of ancient lenses I had up in the closet. It made me want to pull them out and see how they performed ...
  • I consider the Sony 16-55 f/2.8 THE best reason to own a DSLT! It is sharp through out its range. Great colors. Excellent flare control. Weather sealed. Just an all round excellent lens! I think ...
  • As an owner of an A77 the flash exposure is pretty erratic.  Sony needs rock solid reliable flash systems like those available in Canon and Nikon worlds. ...and GPS in all their bodies!
  • Replied in I own an A77
    I love my A77 and would have upgraded to an A77ii if the A77ii had not dropped the built in GPS.  I love the GPS feaure on my A77 and changing to a body without a GPS just is not an upgrade. The ...
  • Personally I find my Sony 16-50 f/2.8 perfect for traveling.  I would rather have the fast and sharp 16-50 than a slower lens with a longer telephoto range.  That is just my personal preference ...
  • I have been using this one for a couple of years: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JY-710-S1-Wireless-Timer-Remote-Control-for-SONY-a33-a35-a37-a55-a65-a57-a77-a99-/370827672282?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=i ...
  • I started with a Lowepro Slingshot and didn't care for it. I like my Lowepro Fastpack 100 much better for a small unobtrusive backpack. I like having 2 straps much better than only having one ...
  • Buying lenses just for the purpose of buying lenses makes no sense to me.  I only buy a lens when I have a NEED for a particular lens that my current lenses don't fill.  Asking others what lenses ...
  • I have had a 39" 4K display on my computer for about a year and a half now. I would never go back. I am a programmer and the desktop space and sharpness of the text is invaluable! My daughter ...
  • :-) You forgot 6 x 7 - one of the more common medium formats.
  • The electronic level on my Sony is very handy... but I would trust a simple bubble level of decent quality over the electronic level in the camera.  It is pretty hard to fool gravity... which is ...
  • The original poster obviously severely abused the right to return equipment to the detriment of every other camera purchaser in the world.  I can see how other like minded free loaders might take ...
  • I think I would have a hard time finding a camera from any manufacture that would NOT meet your listed criteria. If you are only looking at purchasing 3 or so lenses then you only need to make ...
  • I loved my half case and hood when I shot film.  They offered a lot of protection in a very compact and accessible design.  I never considered one for my DSLRs because of the rear screen.
  • If you decide to replace your telephoto zoom I would recommend looking at the Sony 55-300 instead of the 75-300. It is sharper and has a bit of extra range. I bought mine refurbished from BuyDig ...
  • There is no film look.  There are (or at least were) many different films each with their own character and own unique look.  They all had different grain, saturation, color balance, dynamic ...
  • Replied in C & C Please.
    I agree, very nice work. I too do not find the second shot very catching. I think the first photo could be made much more stunning. Because of the aspect of the building it tapers in as it goes up ...
  • Computer monitors (and TVs) have a variety of picture adjustments. Brightness, contrast, hue, color temperature etc. You could post a photo on here that would look terrific to everyone when it is ...
