Hi all - would like some thoughts of people smarter than me and more knowledge of cameras! I currently have an NEX5N - which I love. I do a lot of fast moving sports photography (I have added a Olympus 1.7 teleconverter to my 210 zoom lens), and also a lot of animal photography (quite similar in some ways) - as well as enjoying night photography and light graffiti/painting. I also generally shoot 100% of the time in full manual. The challenge I find the most with sports / animals is the...

Hello all, I just got my hands on a very cheap Lensbaby Composer Pro for A-mount. What is the easiest (i.e. cheapest) way to get it up and running on an E-mount? Found a couple of a-mount to e-mount adapters for around £20, is it worth shelling out a bit more for a used la-ea1 (around £35).  Cheers! Happy New Year to all! J

Hi, Recently I move up from my NEX-5N to a6000. I thinking buy FE lens instead of E lens. My reason is that in 2 -3 years, I can move to Full Frame and use the FE lens. Is there any drawback by doing that? my understand is the focal length work the same in a6000, no mater it is FE or E, for example, Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens is more or less as Sonnar® T* E 24 mm F1.8 ZA.  Am I right? Thanks KL

Hi, I am thinking to attach the above lens reversely on NEX-5N to digitize negatives.  I have some questions:  1. Can I get 1:1? 2. How is the quality compared to macro lens like Nikon 60mm D on NEX-5N for this purpose? 3. Compared to macro lens, is depth of field longer or shorter under the same aperture and distance? 4. Where to get adapter? ebay? Thanks in advance,

Guys, I have a video that I shot and of course, I had no idea what the video settings were. Well, it was shot at max quality so the file is way too big. I tried to convert it but I get some kind of interference looking stuff in the video and I was wondering what settings I should use to convert to? I'm using Any Video Converter and there are a whole bunch of settings there that I have no idea about. Let me know if you have questions that I can answer. Thanks George

So I finally got around to upgrading my NEX-5N to an A7R today, and while playing around with it, I noticed that there is this orange band that would go through my images. I tried shooting with a lens and without, and got these, so don't think it's a lens problem... Shooting with both JPEG and RAW gives me the same results, so I don't think it's a processing issue, either... Any ideas? Any help or speculation as to what the issue is would be much appreciated.

Hi, I'm having the hardest time making a decision here. I'm going to be traveling at the end of the month, and I want to bring the best camera/lens combination that I can. Here's what I have: Sony NEX5N (with firmware update to support the 1650 lens) Sony NEX3N SELP1650 power zoom lens SEL16F28 lens (16mm pancake lens) So, my question is which camera should I bring, and with which lens? I realize a lot of this is subjective, but I'm interested in opinions even if they are just based on...

Sorry, this is going to be a long one... My wife and I have been doing Wedding Videography for a few years now and this year we would like to do photography as well.

For about 2 years we have owned a Sony NEX 5n camera, but we found out that changing lenses is not our 'thing' and although we like the image quality and options of the Sony we want to go back to either a compact camera with sufficient zoom or a bridge (although the last ones are a bit chunky). However we do not want to lose too much of what we are used too with the Sony NEX 5n regarding overall image quality. We understand compact camera's have smaller sensors, however we would like to see...
