  • My little 1" Samsung NX Mini has a 2200mAh battery inside. It's possible. They reached into the parts bin, pulled out a smartphone battery and built the camera around it. Sony, in my A7II, has not ...
  • Still have one for my D700, it's the older type with the red ring. I have it for the past 7 years, but since it weighs 1.6Kg, has a rather long barrel and no VR/OS/VC, I nowadays prefer the Nikon ...
  • Sigma had a 2.8/24-60 screw drive, a 2.8/24-70 screw drive and the actual EX 2.8/24-70 HSM. The two 24-70 have not much in common. The HSM hasn't changed internally , only the exterior has been ...
  • Auto ISO with my A7II is really a shame for a camera at this price point. Owning Nikons D700 for 7 years, a P900 and some Samsung NXes, I know there are better implementations in cameras for a long...

  • I have some Sigma lenses without AF/MF switch and I couldn't use the Fn menu to get MF enabled. Why this, Sony? I had to change the key in the AF/MF/AEL switch from control hold to toggle, to ...
  • This lens will fit, if it's designated as AI or AIS, no problem at all. But you will have no automatic exposure or even exposure metering with your D3100 and this lens. So you are only able to use ...
  • No, I can't. Don't own the the Sony 28-70 and the manual zooms I own are that bad, that I not really intend to use them anymore. Tokina RMC 3.5/35-105, leftover from my film days. Tried with Nikon ...

    At my D700 it's no bad thing at all. The AF-S 4/70-200 has a very good working VR, but my old AF-S 2.8/70-200 VR I shows its age, I bought it used 10 years ago. With FW 03 at the Commlite, IBIS ...

    I'm using the adapter in its Commlite guise. You'll get the firmware at http://commlite.com/en/down.php

    Switching off the camera doesn't reset the lens data in the adapter, you have to remove the adapter from the camera. Curiously, Sony does not switch off the power from the lens, when you switch ...
  • I own a A7II, but I'm not really happy with the videos. Ok, I gave it only a short try with default settings, but I find the output of my Nikon P900 and NX30 better. Sound with external microphone ...
  • Replied in Barbarella?
    How about George Pals 'Destination Moon' from 1950? As a fan of RAHs writings, I have it even on DVD.
  • I do own a first generation Sigma 2.8/150mm HSM (no OS) in its Nikon guise. The lens has no aperture ring of its own, so you need at least a dumb adapter for Nikon G type lenses with its own ring ...
  • Obviously, Sony thinks their dumb users are not able to extract a file and move it from the harddisk to a SD card. That there are users of their devices out there, who don't use Windows or Mac is ...
  • There was recently an update 04 for the Commlite. http://www.commlite.com/en/down.php One of the improvements: 5.1 Improve Partial Lens' mistake of DX/FX recognition Also some other screw drive ...
  • Me too. It looks like my A7II with 04 now reacts to the VR switch at the AF-S 4/70-200 VR, but VR + IBIS don't work correctly together. Actually, it's useless. With 03 there was no reaction in the ...
  • It depends on the program you are using to display the exif data and how configurable it is. If it can't be configured, there is still exiftool and its perl interface. With a little programming ...
  • The Samsung NX 2.8/60 and 1.4/84 have true manual focus, since they have ultrasonic motors. You can do it, but AF wise they are not the fastest lenses.

  • As you can see in my gear list, I still own my NXes and the Nikon. But I have no native FE lens for my A7II, only the electronic adapter from Commlite for my Nikon lenses. With my Nikon 4/70-200 I ...
  • We have a population of around 80 million in Germany, There were 8 killed by police in 2015. You want some statistics: http://www.schusswaffeneinsatz.de/Statistiken_files/Statistiken.pdf What's ...
