Hi I recently bought a second-hand Sigma DP2 Merrill, which takes amazing pictures but it's handicaps are well known, so I'm looking for something as a back-up for when I need to use ISO above 200, need good, if not necessarily class-leading AF and has good battery life (all the things that the Sigma doesn't). Ever since the NEX-7 came out I always liked the ergonomics, the looks and I know the IQ from the Sigma trio is excellent wide open. I'm also cost conscious because I own a slew of...

Hi Dronies, I've just tried to fly my Lumix GX85 camera unsuccessfully - it scrambled the drone's compass. "Intensive electromagnetic interference", as the DJI Go app put it. At first I thought it was the small stainless steel GoPro bolt I used in the mounting, thinking it might be a problem, so I changed to insulation tape only. No change. This was in my backyard, which I've flown in test flights often, but I changed location anyway - no change. I've flown a Nikon 1V1 with 10-30 lens for a...

So i took a photo of a lantern at night and exposed for the highlights, to try and not blow them out, but while processing the image i noticed a strange circular noise pattern around the sides of the image which increased in intensity the further to the edge. Unprocessed Image Image Pushed to show noise problem  Weird right? I understand some lenses have a vignetting effects around the edges, but the effect starts too much in the center for it to be that, and also you can clearly see that the...

On my Nex 7 I can watch the histogram while adjusting exposure comp with control dial (but not while adjusting it with control wheel). How's it work on A6500?  Considering move to A6500. Thank you for your answers.

hi, have just sold my nikon d700 as it was getting a bit too heavy to use off the tripod and the count was getting high. i'm now torn between the (older) sony a7 with kit lens and the new sd with kit lens. my paying gigs for stills (i am a video producer by profession) is generally shooting 2d art work and 'general' gallery shots, artist portraits, etc.,  - so i'm pretty much in control of the lighting, etc.,  wouldn't mind using it for general work, but also have nex7 which i use for happy...

I have an new A6500 on the way from Adorama. It will be supplanting my trusty NEX-7. The Sony A6500 lens compatibility page says I must upgrade the firmware on my SEL-1855 and SEL-55210 lenses to lens system software Ver.02 in order to support Fast Hybrid AF on my new camera. I already upgraded my SEL-55210 lens through the Sony NEX-7 support page. The Sony support site only offers SEL-1855 lens firmware support through the cameras that the lens was bundled with, as I believe the SEL-1855 was...
