  • Adding a "protective" type everyday filter will open a can of worms. Some can like the mental comfort of the lens front element being protected from dirt/harm and don't aim for Nat Geo quality, ...
  • Not trying to pick nits here, but what is to say that the "96%" reading is correct, besides reading the educated guess as provided by the battery? Perhaps, the reading itself lags ...
  • A Sony RX-10M3, 3 batteries w/external charger, 2 Sony flashes, and forever quit coming here to learn/drool/agonize/defend/attack the latest and greatest cons to part with my cash. And somewhere ...
  • Perhaps what might be lost in this discussion is the how the " % Remaining Charge" is generated in the first place. Sony names the battery "InfoLithium" (or something close to that). That ...
  • I also have the lens and agree with others, it is insanely sharp- across the field. I bought it for portraits, A55, then A77ii, but do use very soft light for the wrinkles challenged. Beauty dish ...
  • I can only speak to any of the older/newer Sony DSLT's and the new RX-10iii. I strongly assume the older/newer Sony E mounts will be identical to this next statement: WYSISYG-What You see Is What ...
  • As already mentioned, the mirror less cameras provide the continuous "live view" you are looking for. There is one other group of cameras from Sony that you should know about to get the full ...
  • Sorry for the late reply, as I have been far away from the net all weekend. Refreshing, to say the least. Yes, you have the shown answer I needed. My shelf bridge will not accommodate the new monitor.
  • I'm about to pull the trigger on this monitor, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer for the "on stand - lowest setting, measured from the desk top surface to the monitor top edge" distance. ...
  • Replied in SR mount
    For what it's worth, that "NEX" adapter you mention is the same adapter you will use on the new A7 in your future. If it were me, I'd get a few adapters for your favorite older lenses now and go ...
  • Not trying to start any arguments or wars, but my results were the exact opposite. I shoot a Sony A77II, Minolta 50mm 1.4 for the up-close, baseline stuff. I used to manually white balance on a ...
  • Back in 2010 when I bought an A55, I remember this same aftermarket battery discussion, with varied answers at that time. I decided to just go with the expensive Sony extra battery to eliminate ...
  • Okay, got it. You seem to refer to mostly mechanical type mods were the lens is to big to fit into the recessed area of the adapter.  So far, so good in my case.  I'll have to see if I have any ...
  • I'm just beginning my venture into the C mount to M4/3 world with some 1960's lenses from the16mm mopic days.  Schneider, Angeniuex, Wollensak, Bell+Howell, Kern, and several others from 3.5mm to ...
  • Thanks for your inputs. I'd like to go with a viewfinder camera, focus peaking, magnification, etc., but they are out of my price target for now. I want to start as inexpensive as possible to see ...
  • Finally getting back to this thread. Thanks for your helpful info. I ordered a "Photodiox" C to M4/3 from Adorama to try my lenses for fully seating before I buy a camera. Luckily, the 14 film ...
  • GnarlydogOZ, I understand that the design of the C mount adapter has the lens recessed towards the sensor creating a "hole"  in the adapter surface that the lens body must fit into as it screws ...
  • Yes, I was going to go that route at first, with the A3000 or an older NEX 3, as I am a Sony shooter already, A55, A77ii, RX10iii.  Menu/system familiarity is a big plus. But the APSC sensor will ...
  • Thanks, for that. That's all I'm after, playing around. Do you know if that particular E- PM2 I mentioned is an OK camera to use with no terrible issues?
  • Hello to all. Complete adapted newbie here. I'd like to get my feet wet in the lens adapted world to see where it might go. I own multiple, older, C mount cine lenses from 3.5mm to 5" to start ...
