Hi, I've been having this issue with my A7s and A7s II, both have adapters, a low budget and a metabones, and each camera has a strange issue where I will turn it on, set my exposure and film and everything is fine. Next, I stop recording and the idle kicks in. I awaken the camera and suddenly my screen is blown out (presumably locked at minimum f-stop) and raising the f-stop doesn't change anything except the number readout on the screen. This has been really annoying on shoots where I have...

Thinking of a scenario in which I use c300 Mark I as an A-Cam and Sony a7sii as a B-Cam for night scenes / midnight sun stuff where the added low light abilities will make a difference. New to having to think of full frame/aps-c/super 35 matters. To match the c300, how would you shoot on the a7sii? In HD in APS-C crop mode. Or 4k fullframe and recompose/crop to match in post? I haven't bought lenses yet. Guessing the answer is that I'll have to buy one APS-C and one full frame zoom. But, if...

I've had my Sony battery grip for a while now and have enjoyed using it. Recently, however, whenever I connect it to my camera it will only turn on intermittently. In addition, if the camera is turned on and I wiggle the grip slightly (even when it is tightly secured onto the camera) the camera will turn off. Occasionally I will get a "incorrect battery model" display but I am using Sony batteries. I'm thinking the grip is losing connection to the camera somewhere along the line. I don't...

With the -4EV low light focus on the a7Sii, will I need an AF assist lamp from the speedlite? Situations like dancing wedding reception photos where it's pretty dark. I know that the red beam on the speedlite helps assist the camera's AF in low light situations and was curious if the -4EV rated on the a7Sii makes up for that.  Any experiences that anyone can share would be great :)  --Southwest Florida Wedding + Portrait Photographer | www.andrewdophoto.com

Hello!!  This is my first post! SO please be nice to me hehe.. So about 5-7 years ago, my dad picked up a couple lenses. One of them being a Kollmorgen Corp. Northhampton, Mass Lens. Focal length is like a 85mm lens f2. Specifically 3.25in F2.  Here are some pictures of the lens.  Kollmorgen 3.25in f2  The reason I would like to find out what it is, is because I want to use it for my films and just in general photography.  So if anyone also has any way to point me in the right direction for...

Hello everyone! I got my hands on an a7s and a Metabones EF, E mount T adaptor, tried it with various Canon lenses but it doesn't let me to adjust aperture in any of the shooting settings, it always shows as zero.  Any ideas about what might be the problem? Thanks!

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...

Is there a documented maximum for weight and/or length of a lens for the A7sII? Would it break the mount?
