A number of postings reports some/significant success in using oldish/legacy lenses on A7 and A7R http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3587834 http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52664036 http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3586045 On the other hand, several members reported not so great achievements. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3588847/52685857 "I was excited by the concept of FF E-mount at first because of the thought of using legacy RF lenses with the small NEX bodies at full...
Hi I am attempting to replace my NEX 7 LCD. I have the old LCD exposed & can see the ribbon connector socket , I think. It is a white plastic socket bar into which the new connector ribbon must seat but how do I safely remove the old part, I cannot see any clips but the precise details of the connection are obscured by bits of tape. Does it simply ease it out with gentle pulling or is there some trick to the process ? I have heard that some have broken this part & am anxious not to do...
Sonnyshine gave me an idea in his reply http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52593133 Sonyshine wrote: Now I really enjoy my V1 as a complementary camera to my NEX7. The NEX7 has superior image quality but its not very good at action photography and any zoom you put on with an adapter makes the package big and unbalanced. The V1 on the other hand is great at capturing fast action and great with the FT1 adapter - I currently have the Nikkor 70-300 for winter birding and love it! I did not...
Question, I tried searching for this in the forum but couldn't come up with anything specific. I've got my NEX-7 that many on here know I use for sports photography. The athletic department I work for just purchased radio triggers (CyberSync Transmitter CST) for the corner strobe lights in the main gymnasium. Obviously the trigger uses a standard hot-shoe. There are plenty of knock-off to mid-range to expensive adapters out there (and I remember the craze when they first started coming out)....
I am in the process of downsizing my full frame Nikon D700 gear to acquire a camera system that gets me the same (or relatively similar) image quality. I want a camera that I can throw in my bag and go far a hike or travel without the bulk of a DSLR. However, my main caveat is I want the same Manual controls and image quality as a DSLR. I'm looking at the Sony NEX-7 and the Olympus OM-D EM-1. They both seem to fit the bill in the size that I'm looking for with the manual controls and other...
Maybe some of you own both. I'm wondering if a RX10 would make any sense beside a Sony Nex-7 with the Sony 18-200 lense. Is the 2.8 lense advantage over the Nex? I do a lot of my pictures in dark environment. Important to me is good and reliable focus (even in the dark) and of course either not the need to encrease ISO settings to soon or a good high ISO result (which the Nex has for sure).
Hi, I have a NEX7 with the 18-55 and the 50mm. I am thinking of buying new lenses but then I got hit in the head to change my camera?! I am looking for some kind of justification on whether the 3 above alternative cameras would push the -overall- quality of my photos higher and also let me engage in new things. Am I being ungrateful on my NEX7? Or the other 3 would make a difference indeed. Mind that I am on purpose not saying whether i shoot smth specific as I am trying to focus on the...
Hi guys, just wanted to ask a quick question I've been meaning to ask since getting my NEX 7, now owning an A7R it has pushed me to make this thread. If you have set up the af/mf button to 'af/mf control hold' as I have, then set the camera to manual focus, I can then af by keeping my finger on the button, as soon as I let go I'm back in mf. I have custom button C1 set to 'focus settings', when in manual focus mode this lets me go into mf assist (I see no point having a separate custom button...
