I'm more of a videographer, cover some stills but not my major. Most of my work is documentary, like news features, and I work in small crew usually no more than 3 people. I'm now using C100 and some sony videocameras. I want a change because I do need stills sometime, and I want sth small and easy to carry I'm wondering is A7S my ideal choice? or the A7ii? For me, A7ii is the facinating mainly because of the IBIS, as quite a bit of my shots are handheld. A7S is mainly because of the quite...

I am curious if there is any recent information about how much more light actually reaches the A7-family and a6000 sensors when opening up past f/1.8 or f/2 , the reason I ask is that I read the 2010 article at DXOmark http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/F-stop-blues that says: " “We have been very surprised,” explained Frédéric Guichard, chief scientist at DxO Labs, “to find out that some of the gain from wider lens openings seems to be offset by the present state of sensor technology. Our...

Guys please help. I have an a7s. Is it possible to enable the auto review ONLY on the LCD? I mean, by default it is on 2 sec, but on both the LCD and the EVF. Coming from a DSLR, I want the auto preview to appear ONLY on the LCD because when I'm shooting via the EVF I want to look at what i'm shooting, not at the photo I've just shot...  I can make the auto preview disappear by half-pressing the shutter button, but doing this way the camera (obviously) re-focuses.  Also, I don't want to...

Has anyone experienced any problems with focusing to inifinity?I use the Commlite adapter for Canon lenses on the A7s, and since recently it won't allow the camera to focus at infinity, turning the focus ring all the way just never reaches infinity.Anyone with similar problem and any solutions? Have you had similar problem with other adapters like the Novoflex, Fotodiox or the Metabones adapter?I tried cleaning the connecting pins, mounting and dismounting the adapter, different lenses.Tested...

I'm considering buying an used A7s for about 2/3 of the store price. I have a A7 but want the ISO of the A7s and the speed of the A6000. These are my options: 1. Sell A7. Buy A7s used and a A6000 new. 2. Sell A7. Buy next generation A7s (with stabilization i hope) and A6000 new. 3. Sell A7. Buy A7s new or used and the new A6100 (with stabilization). 4. Keep A7 and buy the new A7s II (and hope it has speed enough) I use alot of Leica M manuel lenses for the A7 and want the stabilization for...

I've been patiently waiting and watching, especially in the last few months, for some price drops on the a7s.  So far a flurry of price decreases on the a6000, a7, a7II, and the a7r but never the a7s.  Anybody have some insight as to why Sony isn't letting the prices drop on the a7s?

So, I was really happy using my Sunpak 344D (for Nikon) flash on my a6000 and NEX-6 using a cheap multi-interface to standard hot shoe adapter I picked up on ebay for less than $15.  All I had to do was put the flash on, popup the built in flash on the camera, and tilt it back so the on-camera flash was not pointed directly at the subject.  If I didn't popup the built in flash, then the live preview would not work, and the preview image would just be a black screen, but wih the popup flash up...

Hi guys, Long time lurker, first time poster. I picked up an A7S last week and started to notice some issues with the sensor. I just wanted to confirm that it is my A7S and not a normal occurrence. I have the ISO cranked up to 65K but I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be seeing red, especially around the bottom left corner that starts to appear at around 20K ISO. I've contacted the store with these pictures and they have ordered a new one. Can any fellow A7S users care to chime in? Thanks! I...
