  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    @Guidenet. Sorry. I don't want to act defensive or even offensive. Just commenting when I read this mount jumping anecdote. From a mount point of view, I find Sony were consistent. Even Minolta...

    It looks like an amazing camera!

    If Samsung still has the possibility to use Schneider Kreuznack lenses, the lenses also can be superb.

    Guidenet.
    Please help me explain which mounts Sony has jumped around with? I did only know the mirrorless E and the full compatible full frame version FE and the DSLR A acquired from Minolta.
    Did...

  • Replied in Film scanning
    A very good comparison of different scanners and scanner types is found here. http://www.filmscanner.info/en/FilmscannerTestberichte.html It's a german homepage, but many tests can be read in english.
  • Replied in Film scanning
    You'll get what you pay for. I've scanned several thousands old color negatives, Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, Konica/Saskura. I've one (actually two) of these old Nikon scanners and also a Canon 9950F (and ...

  • Commented on Sony Alpha a7 II Review preview

    Actually I find the A7II very impressive but build in flash offers the possibility to lighten up shadows/portraits in daylight and also trigger other flashes. Love my build in flashes in my Nex 7,...

  • Why would anyone buy this camera among the competetion? Does it matter if it comes to US?

  • Commented on Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM5 Review preview

    A good reason for a build in flash is, that it also makes it possible to trigger at bigger flash. Even a small guide number can be used for outdoor portraits, but then there is the sync speed...

  • adjust your monitor or polish your glasses.

  • Adapters of that kind has been done for 75 years. And the IQ can be excellent.

  • The 58mm f/1.2 does not have the Minolta AF A mount, but the older SR (MC/MD) manual focus mount (more or less back from 1959). Minolta changed bayonet/mount to the AF A mount in 1985. Sony...

  • From my point of view, one of the remaining problems with the mirrorless cameras are the "shutter"lack/interval from the picture you see at the screen/EVF and the resulting image when you'd pressed...

  • The mirrorless is not the same as a rangefinder in the film days. What you see on the EVF is the same as you get at the picture. Not an optical substitute. (Lika a monocular build into the camera)...

  • I've several Panasonic M4/3 bodies. Only two of these share the same battery. One of few irritating issues with the Lumix M4/3 cameras. I also have and have had several Sony DSLR's (and a single...

  • I have the Minolta MD 3.5 Macro as well. Very sharp - and flat field. Used it for a long time with a glass less adapter and also bellows for Sony Alpha macro work. You may have a bad or damaged ...
  • I've the LEAE4 and Nex 7. The LEAE4 works fine with the old Minolta 500mm RF autofocus lens. That combination can not make use of all the autofocus sensors, but actually works ok for birding, also ...
