  • I also have the HVL-F43AM, I didn't realize that is doesn't do something that obvious.. thats not good. To me its not a big deal now... the A7r doesn't come with an onboard flash and there is a ...
  • This year I got myself a set of Elinchrom lights and I like these a lot. They can be fully arranged and setups can be stored on your desktop or ipad - I haven't seen this on Bowens... the knob on ...
  • Replied in bedtimes story
    It would be fun to hide your speedlight in or behind the bed-light to make it look just this is lighting the scene. To take it one step further... change the lightbulb in the bed-light and turn up ...
  • If you are not interested in remote control of the flash levels... what is wrong with using the slave function? The A-300 has a pop-up flash... these work great for triggering the flash setup. I ...
  • Thanks - that is important information... As long as you keep your softboxes up in your studio there will be not much wear and tear. But putting it up and taking it down on the road is not good for ...
  • Everything is relative :D The last camera I used for years - a 12 MP Oly E-30 was great and I never had any issues with cropping. As long as you don't print but present your shots on screen you ...
  • Thanks for the story! I especially like the professional considerations about the useability of the cropped images. It makes a fellow 36MP shooter very happy :-)

  • For the best results my advise is to narrow your plan for 'a day in the zoo' Are you going on your own just to make pictures or are you taking a day out with (grand)children? In the latter, forget ...
  • It works! Last sunday I just made some shots with my new a7r and my old MD 70-210/f4: http://www.pbase.com/jurjen/image/154866589.jpg The manual focus is a new experience - I kind of forgot how it ...
  • Nope thats what these kits do. It must be said you have been a bit unlucky. I have uesd a Falcon Eyes set of 450 Ws, bought for € 450,- that served me nice for a couple of years and many shoots... ...
  • By closer look - it is an FL50R... Olympus inherited more Minolta features like the shift sensor and the high speed flash synchro... also on the FL50R ;-) - that is why I turned to Olympus in the ...
  • Thanks Symobology, that is important info I overlooked. Good to know I need the M flash for the A7r. The 5600 is staying with a friend that used it a couple of years with my old Dimage 7i. The D7i ...
  • I have been testing with my old Minolta MD 70-210 f4 zoom. The aperture is not connected to the cam so has to be operated manually. Fully opened I found it do-able to focus on the back display, ...
  • Created discussions HVL F43am or F58am?
    Yess I am enjoying my new A7r + 24-70 Zeiss lens and the battery grip. I put the purchase of a flash on hold to get some more info first. I use the flash mainly as fill flash, camera on "M" dialing ...
  • Most important is to know what you will use the tripod for. Most 200 mm lenses do not have a balanced tripod mount, putting a lot of strain on the tripod mount and the pivot system. My tripod is ...
  • Thanks for your reply Ad, that is great news! What is the adapter you are using? www.pbase.com/jurjen The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to ...
  • Created discussions MD 70-200/4 on a7r
    Long time ago I worked long hours to buy a nice Minolta MD 70-200/4 zoomlens and it served me well. It has a special place in the closet and in my heart. Now it is time to pick it up again and ...
  • What a great excuse to buy something new ;-) Most important consideration should be; what are you shooting with you cam? Not only camera's are getting better every year, so are the lenses. So far ...
