I currently use a Sony a65 (will upgrade to FF in future). I am confused in getting a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 OS HSM or Tamron 90mm f2.8 USD for Sony a-mount. Price: Sigma: $669, Tamron: $749 (- $50 Mail-in rebate). I primarily wanna know, how much does difference between 90mm and 105mm matter? I would like use this lens for some Portraits as well. Does Sigma has better build quality than Tamron? Tamron has moisture resistant construction (rubber gasket across the metal mount...
My old PowerShot A650IS (some models should never be discontinued), has a feature to display the last picture taken as long as the shutter button remains depressed. This in addition to the 2 second and Hold settings available in the Rec menu. On the SX40HS, I do not find this functionality. The Rec menu gives has options for a range of review times, plus Off and Hold, but nothing like I had on the A650. Personally I found that functionality to be the most practical review option. Does anyone...
Hi! I'm not a professional photographer and till now I'm using Olympus gears. I would like to upgrade my gear buying a pro or semi-pro gear what can give me professional results. I'm interested in Sony or Pentax because they are sensor shift stabilised and that's good for me because I like using old fast prime lenses. But I'm quite confused. I like shooting portrait, landscapes and architecture, indoor and outdoor. First I was interested in Pentax K-5 but after I looked at Pentax K-50 and I...
I'm playing with the idea to upgrade my camera with a sunshade / hood for the LCD, as I really feel the need for one when using the camera in bright light. My LCD is articulated, bottom mounted (last pic below), and I am looking for something without adhesive - which leaves me with a strap on kind of solution, I suppose. Maybe someone uses something of this sort and can point me further... Something like this would be great (unfortunately this one is designed for side mounted...
I am looking for a LCD viewfinder. #1. Must have diopter adjustment#2. Eye cup has to be big enough to accommodate eyeglasses#3. Dual purpose as viewfinder + hood/shade would be a huge plus Attachment method:- If dual purpose (as above), should be suited for articulated LCDs (strap or magnets)- else wise tripod mount attachment preferable Size: 3", 4:3 ratio.Price range up to $60 dollars I tried one of the sub $10 china ones ("LCD Viewfinder V1") on ebay and they are not all bad for the...
Hi everyone! I’m fairly new to the world of DSLR and am seeking advice from all of you out there with the wisdom! I’ve noticed that Sony doesn’t seem to be a brand people particularly like so I hope I don’t get lynched after writing this. Also, please bear with me as my native language isn’t English, and because spending a lot of money is a big deal for me, I’d rather do my research properly before doing so. To sum it up as much as I can: I got really interested in photography back in 2009,...
While in manual mode and adjusting the exposure to "0" (what the camera determines in correct exposure), I can click one more stop (making it darker) and the meter is still on 0. I have to make an addition click (stop of exposure) to get the meter to move to the + or - side. In other words, the camera's meter allows me two exposure setting at the 0 meter mark. Does anyone else have this issue? My former a300 and a580 never did this. Any idea what's going on. It doesn't affect my shooting as I...
I've been shooting Sony (A300 and A580) for a few years now and bought an a65. It has the 24mp resolution sensor and also 12 and 8 can be selected. The Sony A7S, unlike the A7 and A7R, maxes out at 12mp vs 24mp. From what I've read, they went with 12mp for better low-light performance. Does that mean that if I set my a65 to 12mp that it will do better in low light?
While looking (with no luck so far) for any aftermarket eyecups for the A65 (the bigger ones, providing more shade), I came across this product: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-3x-Magnifier-Eyepiece-Eyecup-viewfinder-to-Sony-a77-a65-a580-a55-a35-A55-SLR-/110855078985?pt=US_Viewfinders_Eyecups&hash=item19cf7a4449 Anybody got one of these by any chance? Is it just cheap china gimmick or could it indeed provide some eye relief? How about using it with eyeglasses? Of course it would block the eye...
