I need two different parts for my Sony Alpha A700 camera (I love this camera): (1) The mirror. I do not have a part number for the mirror. (2) Main mirror retainer. In another forum I saw that the Sony part number was:3-269-002-01 or 326900201 Thanks in advance Stanford

Hello; I'm using a Sony A700 with an HVL-42am flash and trying to fire the flash from a wireless trigger. I have a pixel pawn (Sony version). The Sony Flash fires when on camera, and it also works when I set the camera and flash into wireless mode. However, the Pixel Pawn does not fire the flash. I believe the issue is with the flash and not the transmitter\receiver set, as I have verified with a non-Sony flash and a hotshoe adapter in the Pixel Pawn receiver from the A700, that I can fire...

Hi all, I'm at a point where I want to upgrade to something much newer than my aging A700. The A77ii looks best fit for what I have, but I'm increasingly using my a5100 as a walkaround camera and get better results with it! So, my a-mount lenses are middle of the road but fairly good, and seeing a couple of shots on here with the 24-240, I could replace most of them, buy an adapter for some of my fixed length macro/portrait lenses and get an A7 series, but which one? The A7R is coming up very...

Anyone using the A-mount 16-50mm f2.8 lens on your A7x camera? I've got a good copy, that I loved so much in the past 10 month with my a700. I've since upgraded to the a7ii with kit lens. I am trying to convince myself to let it go. Is there any good reason to sell it? What is the equivalent in FE lens without breaking my wallet? I have LA-EA4 adaptor for Minolta stuff too. I don't want to hoard the lens that I know it can probably be sold with a good return value. I like shooting it at F4.5...

Just bought this and according to the user manual, the shutter button has the same functionality as the one on my old A700 i.e. depress halfway = focusing, depress full and shutter is released, hovever on my old A700 there was a clear distinction between half and full depressed button, which I don't get on the A77II. Is this a defect or just the way it's made?

Myself and my wife shoot with a variety of A mount cameras. an A580, A900, A700. We shot mostly while travelling in Asia. We shot a variety of landscapes, street shooting and portraits of people we meet. My wife uses a Sigma DC 18-250 F3.5-6.3 with the A580 and I use my 70-210 f4 a lot of the time on my A900 and previously on my A700. We shoot alot of photos and they are most often crisp, sharp and very good overall. However we also get a fair amount of shots we call the"nothing in focus...

Sold my A700 1½ years ago and have been missing a camera ever since. I own a couple of A-mount lenses a flash and several other stuff for the A-mount system, so I would like to know if the A77II is still a good buy or if this whole line (A-mount) is abandoned anytime soon by Sony?

I'm wondering if somebody could share their settings for back button focus. I have turned off the focus on the shutter and reassigned that a back button. That works fine, but I'm not sure if it's a result of that or something else, but now when I have the camera in continuous focus, it won't focus that way. I enabled focusing with the eye, which does enable continuous focus, but ended up turning that off last night when shoot a basketball game because it just didn't seem to focus in on what I...

I have the chance to pick up a Tokina 400/5.6 lens "in great condition" for just under $200. Seller is local and I can inspect but haven't yet.  I've read about it on Dyxum but most reviewers were using the a700 or older bodies and didn't think much of the sharpness, even stopped down a bit. I'm curious if anyone has used this on a more recent body with MFA and if so has your opinion of its sharpness improved after adjustments? Would the a77II even recognize/register this lens to store an MFA...
