I'm thinking of buying either an H-Alpha converted A7, or A6000 soon to replace my NEX5R, I might buy a non converted A7II instead. I was wondering if anyone knows if the H-Alpha filter conversion resolves the sensor reflection issue on the A7?

Hello to all. I am writing here for first time as I need the help of experienced users of the a7 system under the specifications that I will present. I am purchasing a a7rm2 and it will be my entry in the Sony mirror less system. Until now I was a canon user and to be honest I ended up giving up photography as my tools were not meeting my shooting style requirements. I shot out of passion for the art of photography. I am not a pro and I have no wish of ever becoming one. I love to photograph...

I just got a A7, when I look at the raw files on the computer they have a very dark / muddy look to them.  Any idea what is going on?I'm wanting for the new version of LightRoom to install and will try opening the images there when it's ready.   Thanks

I am increasingly tired of carrying my Sony APSC & FF setup as my everyday carry camera. Due to the nature of my work, I need to carry around books and a word-processing device.  Before I started to carry around an A7 or a6000 (and sometimes both), I used to carry a RX100. I miss the little camera and was thinking about getting the mark 4. However, I find its performance a little lacking (esp lowlight & DOF control, obviously). But I find its APSC equivalent (A6k + 16-70/4, arguably) to be...

Hi! I'm a 21 years old student from Quebec and I have been saving money for a long time and I feel ready to invest in a better camera. I do a bit of everything but what I like best is mostly landscapes ( Mountains, Lake, etc). I am also fascinated by night shots (milky way, cities, etc). But I would also like to find a camera that would still be good if I need to do a bit of everything . For now, my budget is $1500 max and I would like to have advice on which one I should buy. With the kit...

I just ordered Rokinon 14mm FE from B&H for my a7ii. I know that many such lenses are defective and people send them back, sometimes more than once. Is there a simple way to recognize a lens problem within the first 30 days when it can be returned? Also, I have heard that some people produced their version of the profile of this lens to correct the distortions, or found it somewhere. Do you know where can I get the profile for Sony FE version of this lens? Or maybe it is included with the...

Hello from France, I use a NEX 7 with legacy lenses (AR Hexanon, Isco Gottingen, Lester A. Dine) with very good results (for me), I bought last Tthursday an used A7 II ("like new" 1295 € instead of 1700) on a French resellers website. I went to test my stellar 2/35mm Hexanon, to assess those results to its true focal. Returning, what a disappointment, in some photos overexposed faded spots appear randomly. Sunday I did a test on all my lens and the result is as follows: 35mm and 50mm Hexanon...

After my negative experience with the CV 15mm III, re hotspot, and my current dependence on an old zuiko 24 2.8 , which is ok but subject to lots of vignetting, i am back in market for good compact FE wide lens(es). Have any of you with IR modified A7(R) bodies tried the Sony SEL28F20 and its 21mm adapter SonySEL075UWC? i wrote to lifepixel to ask their opinion, awaiting their reply

there was some mention early on of possible issues related to EFC and their probable causes. it's been a good while since the release of the A7ii and I am wondering has anyone suffered any negative experience while using EFC? i have not noticed any but if there are issues i'd like to be aware of them. --Thanks,Paul

I understand that the power from a speedlight is reduced in the HSS mode. But how many stops of light does it reduce? Can I use my 308S flash meter to measure HSS output reliably? Alternatively, I am thinking to get a 3-stop ND filter so that I can keep the shutter speed at my camera's flash sync speed of 1/250 sec. With the 3-stop ND filter, I can keep the aperture wide. However, this would make sense only f the HSS output reduction is 3 stops or more, right? --Sony A7II | A6000 | RX-10from...
