I'd like to get a background support for seamless paper and eventually canvas. The Impact Varipole system costs approximately $300, while the Manfrotto is about twice as much for what appears to be a comparable kit. Has anyone used both systems? Which one would you recommend? This is for a home studio and needs to be rugged enough to be used weekly, but not daily. Thanks for any feedback. Sony a7 + Carl Zeiss 24-70mm f/4. Background is Savage Seamless and gaffer tape. --Marc A....
Hi! So I was thinking of grabbing a A7 now when the price is ripe. It will be the body only since I already have a bunch of lenses. But what makes or breaks this plan is if I can use my Canon EF lenses. I know auto focus is almost useless on adapted lenses but it doesn’t matter much. All that needs to work is aperture and IS. The functionality seems to vary a lot depending on adapter/lens combo and or luck. These are my lenses: ef-s 10-22mm FF modef 100mm macro usm 2.8 (no IS)ef 70-300mm is...
First off, Merry Christmas everyone. Thanks to everyone's help on here, I decided to buy the a7 body (Just ordered it about 2 hrs ago). My last camera was a t3i. This is my first full frame & Sony camera, so I just had a few questions. 1. For videos and filmmaking, I plan to go after the rokinon cine lenses, but are there any other lens you would recommend me to check out for video/film? 2. Lenses you would recommend for model/commercial photography indoor studio & outdoor shoots? 3....
I know it's not on the roadmap. I'm wondering whether to just finally say "oh all right you win" and pick up the current F4 or wait. I can wait, but the longer I do the more I feel the absence of a genuinely good 24-70. I do still have an LA-EA4 just in case but I really did not like the handling of the A-mount lenses on the A7, I'd rather switch to using an A99 in that case (and I'm not planning for that to happen).
I have used the Fuji xe-1 and xe-2 with fine results and had the chance to try out a RX1R briefly and was really blown away aside from a few focus issues. We decided we would wait for the next version of that camera. The a7ii seemed great and I got it with the 55 1.8 when that wait seemed hopeless. To make a very general statement, I am just getting less good photos indoors with average light with this camera than any of the above. I miss focus quite a bit and I do not seem to be seeing the...
I tested the Sony FE 55mm F1.8 lens with the new Sony A7II on wife's rabbit. I am learning how to take extra sharp/crisp photo. I put the camera on tripod and adjusted the aperture from 5.6 to 22. But it does not seem to change much. The below picture was taken with F11 and 1/160 sec. I focused on the center of the rabbit. Please suggest on how to improve the quality. Thanks.
Just got my A7ii with the kit lens and it seems to be a very good combo. I have on order the 55 f1.8 and will also get the 16-35f4. I plan to get the 70-200f4 as well to complete what I think is a good overall kit foe general photography. My questions are: 1) Is the 24-70f4 a much improved version form the kit lens? 2) Any other opinions re lens selection? I want to stick to native fe lenses at this time. Thank you so much for your help. I usually photography people and landscape.
