Hi, My question is basically, if I use Crop Mode on my A7r (APS-c), I understand the resolution of stills is reduced. But when filming Video on the A7r in Crop Mode...is it still1080p? My settings are 60p 28m, 1080p but I'm not sure if I put APS-C mode on, if that 1080p in full frame mode is cropped into a lower resolution. My goal is to use Crop mode on my Zeiss 55mm F1.8 and still get 1080p for video on the a7r. Any advice appreciated thanks

I just read a thread on the Fotodiox Tough E-Mount and was quite fascinated by how a few defended the sloppy half plastic mount on the A7 and A7r. This thread isn't about that. I just purchased a Canon FD 500mm f4.5L and will be using it a lot. I hadn't noticed how much slop was in the mount until I upgraded to this larger lens. And just to prevent deterioration of this thread... no I don't wag the lens around unsupported. There is still a lot more force with a lens like this even when doing...

I have a Sony A6000 and I was wondering if I would be better off getting the SEL5518 rather than the SEL5018 for portraits. Since the 55 is a full frame would that affect my A6000 images? I am planning to upgrade to a A7R in the future. I am currently using a 55-210mm

When I look at a given prime lens on DXO, the scores on the A7R are much higher for the same lens and often marginally better on another APSC camera like the A5000, which has fewer but larger pixels.   Are these lenses just not able to resolve sharply enough for the small A6000 pixels?   Are the smaller 24mpx too much for an APSC sensor?  But, if that is the case why does the A6000 have so much more detail than the NEX6 on the DPReview studio comparison screen?  The A6000 looks almost...

I have an A7r, with which I've been using the Sony Zeiss Vario-Tessar 24-70 mm lens.  It has performed as advertised.  I decided to sell it (switching to the new Sony 24-240 mm lens).  It has boomeranged on me twice.  The first buyer found that it produced an intermittent buzzing sound on his A7.  He decided that the OSS was faulty and returned it without further testing.  When I put it back on my A7r, if worked perfectly!  The second buyer had an A7II.  On that camera, ALL of the images were...

Hi, I have been unable to get the yn-e3-rt to work in my A7R. I can place the canon 600EX-RT flash in the camera and it will fire, but the camera is not tripping the YN transmitter. Was there any trick to making it work for you? Thanks for your help! Sven

currently own an old macbook pro with 8gb ram, and i find i constantly have to "memory clean" (great app) to free up memory, if i am working with my usual product suite LR, Photomatix and Photoshop and 36mp files from A7R. Working through the configuration options,  RAM: ... 16GB enuf? Planning to buy a new computer to address this problem.  I need a laptop instead of desktop b/c i am basically living a gypsy life, and need to keep things light. Just wondering if anyone has opinion on whether...

When I used my Canon 40D converted to IR, I was able to set the custom white balance by taking a shot that was saved in a custom WB folder. Recently I have had my A7R converted to IR. In trying to use the same procedure for setting CWB, I don't see anything comparable in the manual. The only method for setting CWB is a grid whose temperature can be manipulated. Am I missing something? --Michael S

Hi, just started using LR a year ago. Up to now i have been creating new catalogs periodically, when i accumulate about 20GB or more of new photos to process. Shooting A7R with exposure bracketing really accumulate large numbers of large files. Storage is not an issue but RAM is a huge concern. I was creating separate catalogs b/c I thought it would keep the memory footprint of LR lower, and as my laptop has "only" 8GB of ram, this is a HUGE memory management issue for me with LR, Photomatix...
