I have the Sigma 30 and 19 for use on my NEX-7 and NEX-5t. Just wondering whether Sigma ever released any firmware updates for these. My copies both show version 01 in the menu. --A7-II with SEL2470Z and a number of adapted lenses (Canon FD, Minolta AF, Canon EF, Leica, Nikon...); NEX-7 converted to IR.

Hi everyone, I am a hobbyist and I am currently considering upgrading my gear to full frame. Here is my current set up: NEX-7 SONY 20mm F2.8 (for landscape, indoor shots and general walk around) SONY 50 F1.8 (for portraits and general walk-around) SONY LA-EA2 + SIGMA 50-200mm (for zoos) SONY 18-55 ( I have not used this for a while) The most that I love shooting is PORTRAITS and ANIMALS in zoos. I have tried venturing into some indoor sports (volleyball) with very little success. I do a...

To make a long story short. I went from manual focus 35mm/645 film cameras to a NEX-7 as my choice in digital and skipped the dslr entirely. Last summer I upgraded to the A6500 (I waited for ibis to upgrade). Last week I stumbled into a deal I could not say no to. I have an A7Rii arriving on Wednesday. I guess the point to this preamble is that I have no experience with dlsr menus of any brand what so ever and because of this I don't have a reference point that most of you do. Regarding...

Even since I got a nex 7 in early 2013 and a a6300 in 2016, I have only shot raw.  I've always had a bit of trouble with both the histogram and zebras being accurate. I know that the histogram and zebras come from the camera jpegs, not the raw file. Could anyone advise me as to how to set up the jpegs in order to come as close as possible to the raw file?  Is one picture style better than another for this?  What about the contrast settings? Any guidance would be appreciated. --alan brown

Searched forum, could not find these symptoms. New RX 10 M4, travelling in India. Using for stills 90% of the time.  While shooting, the screen burst into coloured vertical bands for a moment, then went back to normal.  Have also experienced some intermittent flickering on the screen, all in the same time frame.   No recurrence since then. Using some older NEX7 batteries; could power source be an issue? Any info on these symptoms? Still have a couple weeks of travel ahead of me. BTW- love the...

back again so soon - never rains but pours.... have been asked to shoot a horse event (not necessarily fast motion), but i expect to have to shoot a lot to get what i want. i cold of course use my nex7, but it's glorious weather (if a bit too hot), and it's going to be a very colourful event. i've always used raw with my sdq when shooting art works, etc., i did try a few jpg of the grandkids, but they're much to fast for both the sigma and myself. so, given that i'm going to need a lot of...

i've been asked to shoot an 'intimate' concert (4 musicians), not too brilliant lighting, etc., i normally shoot video and rarely shoot stills. when i have in the past (offer me money and i'll turn any trick), i used to use my d700, high iso without flash. results were more than acceptable, even with some noise. recently i shot an art opening with my nex7, again, more than acceptable results without flash - in fact i like a little noise/grain in the pics, gives it an intimacy - though of...

Am looking at an inexpensive body that gives good image quality so I can get some use from older manual focus Nikkor lenses. Anyone with experience on how well one can focus a 200-600mm lens with one of these  two Sony cameras? I am used to optical finders with the film cameras and on my digital Canon bodies. But, having the older Nikon lenses would like to be able to use them for digital work. Will these work well for fine focus? Especially following a subject that is moving?

Hi Researching flash options for the NEX-7, I am bamboozled and I can't seem to find to answer to this question: What adapter will allow me to update the hotshoe used on the NEX 7 (which is NOT the Multi-Interface we saw on the NEX 6) so that the camera can be used with flashes like the HVL-F20M, which have the foot for the multi-interface shoe? I'm looking for an adapter that retains all TTL and wireless functionality that such a flash may have. For that matter, for the off-camera option,...

I was editing my images when the camera shut down and would not re-start.  I tried cleaning the battery sensors, recharging the battery and replacing the sim card but it still does not turn on.  Any other suggestions?  Thanks....4Geoff
