I believe I know what the problem is, but I don't want to admit it. Took it out a couple of days ago, the first few shots were fine, then I noticed the darkness creeping in from the left side. It went half way across in a matter of minutes. It is in both the LCD and the EVF. My local guy said he can not fix it because the parts are not available, so it has to go to a Sony authorized repair shop. Has anyone had this done before, and how much did it cost? I have pulled my KMA7D off the bench,...

I have had my FZ200 for almost 3 years and have been very pleased with it. However in the last week it has been gradually developing faults. I would like to know if there is a chance it will be fixed economically (sending it almost 2000 km/approx 1200 miles and $70 AUD to quote on it) or whether I should just bite the bullet and replace it.  Initially when selecting Intelligent Auto (iA) on the top dial, it would seemingly randomly jump to some other setting internally. Now it often shows a...

Hi, I own a Sony Nex 6 and, along with Sonys and Sigmas, a handful of Minolta glass, including two Maxxums - 35-70/4 Macro and 70-210/4. Used to have a 50/1.7 and Sigma 12-24 but sold them. My 35-70/4 is one of my overall favorite lenses. It's small, sharp, and most importantly I love the colors it produces. Most of time it's far easier for me to get good skin tones in decent light with that lens than with some other lenses (Sony's AWB is good with skin but not as good as what I got used to...

Somehow it's impossible to get a new long range tele zoom for K-Mount in Germany - besides the Pentax DFA 150-450 which unfortunately is too expensive for me. Neither Sigma nor Tamron do sell them here; Sigma lists the current 150-500 available for Pentax mount on their German website, but don't offer this version even in their own (german) online shop. So in search for a more affordable long range alternative to the DFA 150-450 I've now bought a used Sigma 50-500 - the beloved Bigma - which...

Hello all, I'm having an issue with my NX30 when I use an adapted lens on it (I use Canon FDs & Pentak K-Mounts).  The camera will meter correctly at first, but after a couple of shots (or a short period of inactivity), it will not meter correctly and I'll get an underexposed shot.  I then have to turn the camera off, and then back on again to get the camera to meter correctly again.  I usually shoot in manual mode with AUTO ISO.  I tend to see this more when using "Center-weighted" vs...

A little while ago I was using the rear screen in the extended position when the screen flickered, then banded with dark lines, then went out. Now when I try to use it, it will power up, back lighting and all, but will not display anything. No photos, menu information, nothing. I looked up some information on replacing screens, but I don't think the symptoms indicated a bad screen, maybe just a connector. I have a shoot next week in North China so I really don't want to mess around getting it...

Does anybody know about the camera equipment on the New Horizons space probe? How did they manage to get images in focus? It may be a stupid question, but sometimes it is easy to miss focus even here on earth :). And near Pluto, you need high aperture value and I assume incredible short shutter speeds and don t have sufficient light. Not exactly a wedding job.

Hello folks! I own a KM 17-35D as my common UWA and I'm thinking to take a Minolta 24 2.8 RS for landscape and interior uses. I'm sure that some if not many of you had the opportunity to "play" with both and so, in a word, does it worth the extra bucks or I should not expect much better results with the M24 2.8 than I can get with the KM 17-35 at 24mm? Assuming that it's not for the gain on the apperture as I shot mostly at f8-f11. Thank you all :)

I debated about whether to post this in the Sony or KM forum, in the end I decided on the Sony forum because I suspect I'd have more chance of finding the right answer here. I want to set up a cheapo studio at home for photographing items for our small business. Nothing too fancy or expensive, but there are a couple of pitfalls I don't want to fall in to. I'm currently (still) using my KM 7D body, and that will continue to be used for the time being. At some point I am sure that I will...
