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.

The title speaks for itself. Can it be improve? Can we find ways to make it more fair to compare cameras be it different sensor size or the similar? Here's a bonus. Look closely how the light reflection on the brass part of the red brush. Sony a7, A7ii and even A7r have distinctive reflection or shadow cast suggesting the lighting condition is different from the Nikons. Click here. According to the reviewer of thousand of shots made using the comparison there's about 1/6-1/3EV margin of...

I've been a mixed landscape/astro photographer as a hobbyist for a while now. For the sort of things I do, FF has been on my radar for years, and I've finally taken the plunge with a barely-used A7R, coming from a Canon Rebel XS that I've been using since it launched. That said, the lens line is certainly the pain point. For my uses, I've got a pretty good idea on how to build out a set of lenses for this camera, except when it comes to primes beyond 135mm. And my search-fu is failing me at...

I found a local Sony store that has cameras on display for customers to play around with. I had a brief crack at the RX100 Mk3, RX10, RX1 and the A7R. One thing I noticed was the AF lock acquisition of the A7R was significantly worse than my experience with the A7. The store somehow had a 24mm/1.8 lens on the camera, but I don't supposed that would have any impact on the AF performance of the body. It was a decently lit environment. At f1.8 I was able to shoot at ISO400 or so, so it was by no...

Anyone tried the Tamron SP 90mm F2.8 Di VC USD 1:1 Macro on A7R? And if it's as good as the DXO score suggests, why would anyone buy the new Sony 90mm which is much more expensive?

I'm relatively new to photography I've had a few mechanical issues with my camera from the time I bought it which has not helped to the most part these have been corrected, but I'm wondering is the A6000 good enough of a camera to do professional work as in photo's I could sell?I've an A6000 plus the 28-70mm FE lens had the 18-55mm which I actually found to be better but sold it.I don't have the len collections yet but my photo's seem to lack the detail I desire sometimes its the camera as...

All, I'm planning some longish hikes later this year and wondering what to do regards my A7R's battery life... Already have several batteries, back screen disabled, camera in airplane mode and AF switched off but despite this easily getting into two batteries per day so what to do? The long hikes will be in places I might not be able to get power so charging via USB won't always be an available option. Did wonder about the emergency battery packs sold for phones, anyone used such with any...

I've been using a Fuji X-T1 and Fuji primes for the last year-plus. Recently I wanted to branch out into video so I got a Sony A7S and Sony FE zoom lenses. The X-T1 is great for stills; the A7S, excellent for video. But it means I have a lot of incompatible gear to lug around. (There are no Metabones X-mount - E-Mount adapters that I know of.) Can anyone tell me if the A7II or the A7R comes close to the X-T1 in image quality? If so, I'd move away from Fuji for the sake of carrying less...

I'm getting ready to purchase my first "Professional" equipment setup. I've narrowed down my decision between two cameras, both of which seem to get high praise from everyone. I've been getting mixed advice from the guys at my local photography shop. Some of them swear by Canon for lens quality/selection, while others say Sony's issue with lens selection is easily remedied by using a nice adapter such as Meta bones. I love canons L glass, so it seems an adapter would give me the best of both...
