It's funny that you don't really think about other accessories when you plan to switch systems. Now that I've made the switch, I realize I need a flash (for nice soft bounced light while shooting people). My Canon system's flash is the Speedlite 580EX, and I tried to get it to work on the A7RII, but the TTL mode doesn't work, and the manual mode even at lowest setting is still too bright (no idea why). So I can't use it, and need to find a replacement. The problem is, Sony's own flashes of...

I have in someway done some thing to get way too much clutter on my playback after taking a picture. Histogram is blinking , all info on settings. I can't find anywhere to eliminate all this, and be able to see my shot again. I looked all through the menues. Help needed please: Larry

I would like to start taking photos with off camera flash using my Sony A7r camera. Could anyone recommend a cheap wireless triggering system and a flash that are compatible with one another and the A7r as I am quiet confused about which products may or may not work together. Note: TTL & HSS would be nice but are not required to work. Thanks in advance. Dirk

One thing that's slightly annoying, is that what happens after I download images/videos from memory card to the computer. I usually just delete the files from the folders on the memory card, but then in the camera it would still show those files exist, except you can't playback since the actual files have been deleted.  If I want to get rid of all records of previously recorded video clips, I'd have to also delete all the files from the CLIPNF and PLAYLIST folders too, but that doesn't always...

I am interested in prime legacy lenses that will utilize the high resolution of the A7RII, and can be found reasonably priced (good value for the money), in the following focal lengths: 24mm, 28mm, 85mm, 135mm, 200mm. I would consider a zoom if its optical qualities and weight/size matched up with two of the primes (for example a wide angle or a telephoto zoom) I would use these for landscape work, always manual focus. They do not need to be fast lenses. I would prefer compact and light...

Several sources show that setting the center button to Standard should allow me to press the center button and then be able to change the focus point and size. I have done this, and when I press it, i see a rectangle in the center, but it disappears before I can do anything. Initially it is a grey color. If I hold the center button down, it turns green but goes away without ability to move / enlarge. I am guessing another setting is interfering? Any ideas? Thanks.

I have an A7 that I use almost exclusively with legacy lenses from 24mm-500mm. The viewfinder could be improved for my purposes (as could focus peaking), but I'd like to hear from those who have both cameras. Does magnification make it sharper and easier to judge critical focus? Is it clearer or more realistic? Any other changes? My brief test of the XT-1 viewfinder left me favorably, but I don't know if that is because of the optics in front of the panel or the panel itself. I know it's more...

I unclear what lens profile to choose when a non-native lens is mounted on an a7x camera. For example, suppose I have a Canon EF 35mm f2 IS mounted via a FotodioX adapter. Adobe's ACR "Lens Correction" tab will be confused, and typically leave the option disabled. It is possible to force the selection of any lens in the local lens profile database, but this seems flawed. Or, can the same lens profile be used, regardless of which camera it is mounted on? Is the preferred approach to acquire or...

When using a-mount lenses with the LA-EA3 on the a7rII, does the on board AF assist or external flash AF assist light now work? Or is it still broken and deactivated?
