I'm contemplating adding high speed sync flash in to my shooting again.  I used to shoot the HVL-F58 on my A700 with high speed sync and and although I never had much use for it at the time, on camera it worked pretty well.  Nowadays I primarily shoot with A77ii  and have a set of Yongnuo flashes and trigger that I really like but they are all manual and max sync is 1/250.  Wondering if anyone has any experience with any high speed sync flash?  Any systems that work with HSS off camera?  I...

I got a Sony Alpha A700 when they were first released back like 150 years ago, it's getting a bit long in the tooth. With how much the cameras have advanced and the birth of my son in March I've decided to upgrade and pick up a new A77ii to replace it. My A700 came with an SAL18200 kit lens. I'm thinking I will keep it with the camera and put them up on craigslist together. I have the following Sony lens that I will be keeping - SAL70300G(4.5-5.6/70-300 SSM), SAL50F14(1.4/50), and a SAL100M28...

Hello; I'm using a Sony A700 with an HVL-42am flash and trying to fire the flash from a wireless trigger. I have a pixel pawn (Sony version). The Sony Flash fires when on camera, and it also works when I set the camera and flash into wireless mode. However, the Pixel Pawn does not fire the flash. I believe the issue is with the flash and not the transmitter\receiver set, as I have verified with a non-Sony flash and a hotshoe adapter in the Pixel Pawn receiver from the A700, that I can fire...

Hi all, I'm at a point where I want to upgrade to something much newer than my aging A700. The A77ii looks best fit for what I have, but I'm increasingly using my a5100 as a walkaround camera and get better results with it! So, my a-mount lenses are middle of the road but fairly good, and seeing a couple of shots on here with the 24-240, I could replace most of them, buy an adapter for some of my fixed length macro/portrait lenses and get an A7 series, but which one? The A7R is coming up very...

Anyone using the A-mount 16-50mm f2.8 lens on your A7x camera? I've got a good copy, that I loved so much in the past 10 month with my a700. I've since upgraded to the a7ii with kit lens. I am trying to convince myself to let it go. Is there any good reason to sell it? What is the equivalent in FE lens without breaking my wallet? I have LA-EA4 adaptor for Minolta stuff too. I don't want to hoard the lens that I know it can probably be sold with a good return value. I like shooting it at F4.5...

Just bought this and according to the user manual, the shutter button has the same functionality as the one on my old A700 i.e. depress halfway = focusing, depress full and shutter is released, hovever on my old A700 there was a clear distinction between half and full depressed button, which I don't get on the A77II. Is this a defect or just the way it's made?

Myself and my wife shoot with a variety of A mount cameras. an A580, A900, A700. We shot mostly while travelling in Asia. We shot a variety of landscapes, street shooting and portraits of people we meet. My wife uses a Sigma DC 18-250 F3.5-6.3 with the A580 and I use my 70-210 f4 a lot of the time on my A900 and previously on my A700. We shoot alot of photos and they are most often crisp, sharp and very good overall. However we also get a fair amount of shots we call the"nothing in focus...

Sold my A700 1½ years ago and have been missing a camera ever since. I own a couple of A-mount lenses a flash and several other stuff for the A-mount system, so I would like to know if the A77II is still a good buy or if this whole line (A-mount) is abandoned anytime soon by Sony?
