  • Step up DC/DC converters are nowadays small, cheap and efficient. Loading a battery inside the camera is no problem at all with only the 5V the USB port provides. My NXes are using 7.6V batteries ...
  • You are right. With glasses on, the EVFs of my Cameras are simply not really of any use for me. I take the glasses off and everything is fine. Only the the EVF of the Nikon P900 sometimes needs ...
  • Get yourself a Samsung NX of the last two generations and you can do this with an ILC. Connect it to the nearest WiFi or use your phone as a mobile hotspot. Email? In camera. Facebook? In camera. ...
  • You may get the Commlite CM-ENF-E1 to adapt Nikon AF lenses to the Sony, but I think you have only one lens with which AF may work and this is the 1.4/58. Not sure about the Tamron, since afaik ...
  • You may be right, because we mostly saw his foreign policies, which affected us. Not that all of us liked Reagan. I still don't like him, but I respect him as a politician. Trump looks for me more ...
  • Don't you see the difference between Reagan and Trump? Even as a German I know that the bone headed anti communist Reagan was deeply rooted inside the GOP, served as governor of California and ...
  • 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 ...
