I am wondering how to set the rear control wheel for aperture control.  I use my camera in an underwater housing and need some way to control aperture and shutter speed simultaneously in manual mode from the back of the camera. The housing does not have control of the front grip dial.  I previously used an A7sII and was able to program the rear wheel to control the aperture while the top rear dial controlled the S.S. Similar to a Canon 5D setup.  If for some bizarre reason Sony does not allow...

I've been shooting with my A7 for a couple of years now, but only recently got my first super-zoom lens setup: Tamron 150mm-600mm + Sony LAEA3 A-to-E-mount adapter. I'm loving it except for the issue of focus. I'm taking lots of pictures and having a very hard time determining if what I'm shooting is in-focus or not. It's impossible to tell with the distance that I'm shooting at, and I can't be checking every shot (especially when shooting wildlife). Here are the problems that I'm...

I tried searching for an answer but the threads always devolve into "why do you need it?" or "You can't even tell the difference...". So please, avoid those since I have already read through few threads of it. And if it is not supported I don't think it will since I see no brouhaha in this forum about it, as it was on the FE forum. --Portfolio : http://dantas.photographyStreets of Helsinki : http://streetsofhelsinki.dantas.photographyFlickr : https://secure.flickr.com/photos/rhawidantas/

So I just bought an A7 MK ii with the Zeiss 55mm f1.8. After testing it at 1.8, 2.8, 4 & 5.6, against my 50mm 1.8 on my older A6000, I can categorically say that the former combination is producing softer images than the latter.  I am so dissappointed. Any ideas why? Does anyone else have the same combo and a different experience?

hello friends recently i bought a 7II along with 16-35 zeiss lens which is really amazing. however, i need to have a zoom lens mostly for portrait and street photography. so im thinking about 24-70 zeiss and 24-105 sigma with ac-11 adapter. based on Dxomark review, Sigma has better image quality. in addition, i have heard some negative reviews about 24-70 zeiss lens. im wondering, which one of mentioned lenses could better pair with my a7ii ? i appreciate all your comments and experiences. ...

I'm looking to update my tripod system and im torn between so many options. First a quick overview on what i do:I'm looking to get the tripod for basic DSLR video gigs, if I need something heavier in my setup I'll rent a heavier tripod. I'm currently running with Sony A7 set with some longer and "heavier" Canon lenses (24-70f2.8, 70-200f4 and Sigma 24-35f2, also some rented glass when needed). I'm also using Zoom H5 and looking to expand it with a cage to A7 and for a proper shotgun mic. I do...

Hi all, is the Minolta 5600HS compatible with the 77ii with an adapter? Does ADI or Pre-flash TTL still work ok? My Alpha 700 hot shoe mount is dead it seems, tested the flash on my Alpha 100 and it all works ok, so, sigh, I have to buy a new 77ii... Thanks --DMalcolmGrowing kit list in profile....

I bought on eBay a Techart TA-GA3 AF adapter to mount a Contax G 90mm f2.8  on my A7II. Right out of the box ( which came with no instructions ) I could mount the adapter easily to both the lens and camera, the AF worked well as I expected, and I unmounted it to check if the firmware was up to date... now I must be doing something wrong since it won't turn enough to lock in place on the lens! Please, could anybody give me some help on this? Thanks for any advice! ...Lucas --:-) Always having...

Hi, I have an 'old' Sony Alpha 550 (and an Alpha 100 as backup). Apart for the occasional family pictures, I use it mainly for shooting insects (Tamron 90mm). I am planning to upgrade to a newer body and I am considering the Alpha 7s for its high sensitivity and low noise. You never have enough light when doing macro outdoors. I have a hard time finding any relevant examples of macro with a 7s. Most reviews out there are focusing on its low-ligh video capabilities which, I have to admit, are...
