I decided to take advantage of the excellent pricing on the A65 to get one as an upgrade from my A55, which I bought back in 2010. I noticed that nearly every lens I own supports lens corrections on the A65. So I'm considering streamlining my workflow by moving from RAW (Apple Aperture) to jpeg to take advantage of this, and maybe using DRO as well. Can folks tell me their opinions of fine JPEGs on the A65 with the latest firmware? The new camera is shipping now so I haven't been able to do...
In December 2013 I sent my Sony A55 for Censor cleaning and got it back in January 2014. Since then I do not change lens outside. I keep lens and camera in a safe keeper with desiccant and guess what? Today I took some Cherry flower's shots and noticed there are few black spots on the image. I wonder why would camera censor got that even I am taking care? Also here in Japan censor cleaning kits are not widely available as in overseas. Do you think once again I should send camera for...
Cannon/Nikon offer 2 years warranty. Why can't Sony offer the same. Really interested in A6000 but having just burned good money with A55 after 1.5 years, I would seek comfort in 2 years warranty. Is Sony camera product quality so poor that they cannot offer 2 years warranty? How many others have encountered camera breakup after 1 years ?
I need help to take a decision. I want to substitute my A55 with an APS-C NEX camera. Reason: I have the Sigma 8-16 lens and don't find any alternative to this lens for FF (A7) that I'm happier with. I already have the LA-EA4. Minimum requirements: the NEX camera has to be able to accept either the HVL58FM or the HVL60FM. Given I don't care for MP, I assume my best choice would be the NEX6 (or maybe wait to what Sony will present the 12th of this month) Pro and cons of the alternatives: I...
Rightly or wrongly just bought from Amazon UK a Sigma F2.8 DC OS HSM for my Sony A55 I did not realise when ordering that this was the OS version - I know the clue is in the name. On the box it says compatible with the A77 and A57 so I am assuming it is compatible with my A55 Is it just a matter of leaving the OS switched off? and using the A55 steadyshot system or vice versa I took some pics over the weekend some of which were not that sharp but that could have me and the baby moving Any...
Two of my lenses won't AF on the target point with my A99 ( though I reached end of scale -20 on both - on the microAF adjustment scale and the focus is still off )!! - Sony 50/1.4 ( bought it used at KEH with an Ex+ rating, sent them an Email and they said there's nothing they can do about it! ) - Minolta 135/2.8 ( I have it for quite a while and worked very well with A900, A55, A77... ) I wonder if anybody has/had a similar problem and had the lens sent to a repair/calibration service...
Hi all, I have a mirrorless (Samsung NX) with a bunch of small primes. I'm toying with the idea of getting an SLT and a fast zoom (Tamron 17-50 or maybe Sony 16-50). Samsung is releasing a 16-50 f/2-f/2.8, but it will be heavy (doable since the bodies are relatively light) but really expensive (initial MSRP $1300). The Tamron on SLT seems like a really good deal and would be just slightly heavier than the Samsung if paired with a smaller body (e.g. A37 or used A55/A35). My question: Is the...
Hello Sony users, I want to close the view finder of Sony SLT A55 when I use Bulb mode to avoid any light. Could you suggest any idea or if there is anything I can buy and use? PS* Before asking question I search the web but usually get results of rubber eye piece which I do not need. Thank you in advance.
