All, I've been rummaging around here for a couple of days and really would like some advice. I currently own an A55 and really like it. I have been saving to upgrade and am undecided between the A77 or the full frame A99. Any advice? I typically shoot landscapes and wildlife, but am interested in trying out some night photography such as light painting and/or star trails as a background to landscapes. I've read that the A77 isn't so good at high ISOs, but what about long exposures at low...
My question is, what should I use for longer focal length, around 200mm along with the Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 for weddings? Story follows: I am shooting a wedding soon (I have done several), but my question is I am going to rent a lens or two for my A7/A99. I have a CZ 24-70mm f/2.8, and a 70-210mm f/4 beer can. Both were fine for the last wedding I shot, but would like to rent the Zeiss 135mm f/1.8 so I can both test it out and have fun shooting it for a wedding. I don't see that Sony has any...
Hi!Took some pictures today and there are some stange things I want to ask about. Camera is A7, lens used in 2 first photos was Canon fdn 50/1.4, aperture f8, I thinkand in ruins pfoto Tokina rmc 17mm. In this that lighter point in upper left. Same kind in the middle of the ruins http://hannuhaa.smugmug.com/Galleries/Kemora/i-HrBQtR8/0/X3/DSC03782-X3.jpg In the seaside photo there is lighter circle in the...
Hi all, i've got the a7 to use with my collection of ff lens with the La-Ea4 adaptor, the af speed is very slow, and hunts unstop indoor, the same combo with nex 7 and la EA2 performs much faster and can match the a77 native mount. I've seen reports here claiming the LaEA4 could out perform the a99, is that the case with all lens? the ones i've tested and let down -135z (dead slow) -85z (dead slow) -16-35z (normal speed, not fast, but dof is large may be that's why) -70-200G (dead...
The grip for my A99 arrived today. Can anyone explain the part of the manual that says: The three battery packs are used in the following order. 1. The battery pack attached to this unit that has less power. 2. The battery pack attached to this unit that has more power. 3. The battery pack attached to the camera. What does it mean "has less power" or "more power", please? Perhaps the battery provides more power if it's put in tray 2 instead of tray 1 of the grip? I must say, the grip is not...
Hi! So I've recently become obsessed with the coolness of fisheye pics and my hubby says that he'll get me one for my Christmas present, but that I have to tell him exactly which one to get. :) Can someone tell me if my a99 will give me a fully circular image if I choose a Rokinon/Bower 8mm fisheye without a hood? I've been reading around and someone mentioned that it is "nearly" a circular image which is not what I want. I'm also considering asking for a 16mm since it's been so highly...
Hello there I have owned the Minolta 7D and it died, so I got the D300s and it still works great. But I’m retiring soon and I want one more camera. Has anyone done any tests with the A99 vs D800, I know that files are larger with the D800. But on dp the test showed the A99 to be a better FF camera. I was just wondering if anyone had done any real world testing with these two cameras. I basically photograph people in the studio but would love to a better low light and IQ camera also and I...
If you had to chose between A99 and A7R for low light pictures (3200 or 6400 ISO) or picture with moving subject (child, sport, birds, ...) which one would you chose ? Some questions : 1/ I read that using LA-EA4 adapter, A7R can be as fast as A99 to focus : is it true ? 2/ I read that A7R has a stellar high ISO performance. When I watch to DXOMARK results, A7R scores 2746 ISO but A99 scores only 1555 ISO. What happends when using a LA-EA4 adapter ? Does the ISO score of the A7R remains the...
Hi!I would like to handle A7 rawfiles. I have now Lightroom 5.2, but as you know it does not read A7. I tried with dng converter 8.3.but it does find any raw files from card or computer. Why? I would not mind install IDC either. If I download Ligthroom 5.3. release version does it make own folder in computer and 5.2 LR can be used normally? Will there be problems in the future in uppgrading 5.2 to 5.3 ? I thought that by converting raw files to dng files I could use them in L5.2.Thanks in...
