I made a couple of videos lately but I'm not that happy with the results. Each had similar capture circumstances and settings and each exhibits similar problems. I include both only because the problems may be a bit more evident in one or the other. Capture is done with: the A57 (appropriately enough for this forum). the kit 18 - 55 lens auto focus, zone zooming with lens and clear image zoom not sure what else is relevant. Video is shot in 1080p at 24fps. Here are the videos: Rebounding...

Hi, I'm shooting a video in aperture exposure mode and wish to lock in my exposure setting. Reason being that I have a light background behind the subject. I'd like to point my camera elsewhere then lock exposure then point it at subject. Problem is that every time I tap the movie button the camera resets the exposure and my subject is underexposed. I know there is a way to lock it and do what I'm attempting. I've done it in the past but can't seem to remember how. Does anyone share what the...

I've noticed a few lens mount adapters, say, M42 to Sony A, and with the used lens market it looked like a fun way to get a few inexpensive, different lenses to play around with. Is there a list somewhere with which adapters work with which lenses?  Are there limitations, i.e; m42 50mm 1.4 fits aps-c fine, 80mm f1.8 doesn't, etc? Sorry for all the questions, i keep googling and still seem to come up short, or more confused than when i began searching. In summary i suppose my question is, I...

Good morning DP community, I am looking to upgrade my Alpha 57 (w/ kit lens) with a new prime lens. I am just getting started with serious photography, love videography and am on a budget. After a quick search in Google and the DP forums I couldn't find an answer to my question, I hope you guys can help me :) My criteria: - I want a lens, that keeps quiet while auto-focusing. This was the original reason for buying a Sony camera (translucent mirror technology - continuous autofocus without...

I recently had a small accident with my A200 where I was trying to get a shot low down and near the ground. I either jarred my arm or hit my leg but the result was that the camera slipped from my hands and hit the ground. It was only about a 1 foot drop if that but it was enough to kill the SuperSteady Shot and in turn also messed up the sensor position. I'm not hopeful of repairing it given that I've seen prices listing about £120 so I'm also considering newer models. The problem I have is...

Has anyone had a problem with the Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 XR on an A57?I have now bought two of these, the last one arrived today, and had to return both as they are displaying the same problem. When the lens is connected to the camera it makes a ticking sound, won't focus and won't release the shutter. If I switch to manual focus it will focus but the screen flashes with a white flash, the f number flashes and it will release the shutter. It will however work ok on my spare A300. My other Sony...

Hello all, Getting to head into town in a couple of days and so get to buy a new lens (or two if the price is right) for my A57.  We are having our first baby in a few months and so being set up for that is one of my main priorities.  I have a DT 35mm 1.8 which I almost never take off the camera, and a Ricoh GR for landscape shots.  I am looking for a macro lens for the newborn feet, fingers, etc, shots.  I am assuming the 50-90mm range will be the best, but am seeing if the Sony 30mm macro...

Hi, I am using SLT A57. I am kind of unhappy with the quality of the images i am getting from my camera. Am not sure where I am going wrong. The exposure meter in the camera, while taking the snap, showed as 0 (supposed to be proper exposure). But when I try to edit the image in editor (Rawtherapee) , the editor shows as the image is under exposed by 1 to 2 EV. I tried using all the available types of metering modes in SLT-A57, but that didn't give me any better result. How to confirm that my...
