I would like to purchase a 135mm F/2.0 full frame compatible lens for my APS-C camera, but I read that on an APS-C camera, this lens gives a 35mm focal length equivalence of 202.5mm. To give a depth of field effect similar to 135 F/2.0 on a full frame camera, should I instead purchase a 85mm F/1.4, since that will give a focal length equivalence of 127mm (much nearer to 135mm)? Thank you in advance for any help! Camera info: Sony NEX-5R Lenses I'm looking into: Samyang 135mm F/2.0 Samyang...

I'm considering the Manfrotto Compact Light as a simple, cheap, compact tripod for my Nex 5R. I like the look of it and it seems to fold down to 40cm which will be good for stashing in my backpack on holiday for the odd occasion I'll want it. It also comes with a Nex 5R/5T specific adapter to deal with the limited flat area around the tripod mount.  I don't know if this is a serious issue and reflects a problem with this specific tripod or the camera. If its the latter would I have...

i am an absolute noob in photography,so if something offends you,i am sorry in advance..I am thinking about buying a sony mirrorless camera (a5100/a5000/nex 5r/Nex 5T) but i also want a prime lens with it. i was thinking about going for a cheap manual 35mm full frame lens(f1.4-f1.8) EF/FX mount and use it with a basic adapter(so i get 52.5mm) and a speed booster/speed master(you get the idea)(35mm). i am not particularly excited about the smart adapters as they are expensive. so i want a...

I shoot a lot of video with my NEX 5R. I have sequential naming on. This works for still, but not video. For instance, if I shoot up to image 1003 and video 12, then wipe the card, still continue at 1004, but video starts over at 0. Is there any way to prevent this? On a related note, my camera seems to lock the memory card. I can view it on my computer, but not delete anything. Is there any way around this? I'd like to be able to back up last month to my computer and delete it off the card...

Hi there! I am searching for an LCD hood for my sony NEX 3n I just bought. The reason I would like it is to provide the shade and additional mechanical protection for the screen. However, after checking ebay and amazon I could not find any product where it would be explicitely stated that it is for 3n. There are plenty of hoods for nex-3, nex-5, nex-5n and I also found 1 for nex 5r and 5t on Amazon. link:...

Sony Nex-5R firmware ver. 1.03 I shoot in manual mode and set the aperture as wide as possible for shallow depth of field. Now I want to adjust the shutter speed as light conditions change. It is done on the Control Wheel [user manual p. 14 button #17]. I would prefer to use the Control Dial [user manual p. 14 button #13]. Is that possible?

Hello everyone, I'm required to install the latest firmware (1.03) on my Nex 5R in order to use the time lapse app. I'd like to make sure that it will no prevent the use of generic batteries and generic AC-PW20. Can anyone confirm that? Bonus question: is it possible to reinstall an older firmware afterwards? Thanks.

I bought a used NEX-5R on January 11th. It worked fine up until a week or two ago. Now, when I plug it in, the charger light is orange for a few seconds, then starts blinking like it's overheating. I have two batteries and they both do it. Since I was setting it near a window to charge and it was quite cold up until about a week ago, it may have had this issue all along. It's about 60 F right now, well within the operating guidelines. Is this a known problem with this model? Do I have any...

When I upload pictures to the gallery, stuff like ISO, exposure, aperture and focal length is auto-filled, but the camera and lens are not, even though they are in the metadata. I tried pics from my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Sony alpha NEX 5-R and Canon Powershot SX210 IS and none of them filled in camera data. Is this normal?
