Is there such an animal that will allow for the electronics to function?  Also, is there a teleconverter that will work with the a55 and a Minolta APO 200mm lens?  Thanks for your help, I just inherited some new-to-me equipment.

I would like to get my camera to do short bursts while in shutter priority mode. It is for taking pictures at a jazz club. Any ideas if this is possible?Francishttps://www.flickr.com/photos/150224213@N04/

What should I be looking out for an A55? I want something that is sharp and wide. I won't be bothered about how good AF is as, it would be mainly manual stuff I would use it for. It also needs to be affordable, as I believe some of the older lenses can be.

I have an aging Sony SLT-A55 which is dropping the occasional hint that it would really like to retire soon (clock backup battery no longer works & occasional ‘Camera error’ fault). I mainly take landscape photos (wide angle, lots of sky, wide dynamic range), nature photos (medium angle/macro) and wildlife photos (generally under the shade of trees at longer focal lengths).I have built up a range of lenses over the years: Tamron 18-270 travel zoom, Tamron 90mm macro, Sigma 10-20mm wide angle,...

I have several old Minolta MD lenses that I would like to use on my Sony DSLR cameras. I picked up a Minolta M-A 2x converter S for a good price for doing this. My question is this. What is my effective focal length when using the adapter on a Sony a55 and a Sony a850? For example. If I use a Minolta MD 135mm lens on these cameras, what is my effective focal length? a850 - 135mm x 2 = 270mm a55 - 135mm x 2 = 270mm plus the crop factor of 1.5 giving 405mmAm I correct in assuming the above is...

Hello. I may have to upgrade from my wonderful but oldish A55, which is playing up. I'll like to keep the 16-80 Zeiss lens so probably would not want a full framer at this time. I also like the compactness and lightness of the A55 and an on-board flash. I shoot 'everything' really. Any Sony recommendations from anyone? Thank you. PS are you still going well Canadian Club? I hope so old timer!

HI, This is my first post here, but have read some threads here for a little while I'm looking into getting a lens for wildlife and one for landscape photography.. Hopefully for under $1000 each if possible or decent ones at a reasonable price.   Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, Jeanette

I was playing around with my old film cameras the other day, and when I picked up my Ricoh GR1s I started to remember how much fun I used to have with a really high quality, truly pocketable compact camera. Unfortunately, research into the current GR2 showed me that it's somewhat dated, and Ricoh are being somewhat cagey about when a replacement is due. So I became very interested in the X70, but am somewhat disturbed by the almost universally negative reviews it seems to get for its movie...

Without spending any more than absolutely necessary, I'm looking for a good night photography wide angle lens i.e., something on the order of 8 to 18mm with F stop 2.8 or lower. Any suggestions? Thank you, BCM
