I recently bought a Sony A7ii to try out the uncompressed raw. While I tried to edit some pictures I took on Lightroom 6 it reads "The file appears to be unsupported or Damaged" I was thinking maybe it's because its not updated. So I was wondering what version of lightroom supports Sony's uncompressed raw?

My granddaughter plays highschool volleyball. I'm using a Canon 5D MKIII with a 70-200 2.8 to shot her games. I get some good shots, but I really want to get a smaller setup. Does anyone have any experience using the Olympus OM D EM 1 MKII for indoor volleyball? I've searched the internet, but can't find anything about it. Thanks.

Hi,I just received my A7III a couple of days ago. Coming from the first A7 and then the A7RII, I find it a huge improvement, especially in usability and responsiveness.I love the new Recall Custom hold features, I assigned different focus area and with Eye-AF on a custom button as well, it makes life so much easier and ready to cope with almost any situation.There is one thing I noticed though compare to the A7 and A7RII is that the camera gets warm after about 30 minutes or so of photo...

Hello,  used prices for the A7r2 have come down a lot and I am seeing so many great value deals that saying no is really hard. Let's face it, I have GAS. I am still shooting the A7. Mainly portraits on holidays and the occasional weekend. Mostly with the cheap 50mm 1.8 FE. I am still perfectly fine with the image quality of the A7. I don't crop much and I don't need tons of dynamic range. Pretty colours, good expressions and pretty bokeh and I am happy. What bothers me on the A7 is the slow...

Hello, I have an A7 (original), an iPhone and an iPad, and I’m looking for a way to transfer videos shot on the A7 to the iOS devices. I did some searching on the internet but most of the questions are about the more recent A7 models, which shoot XAVC S videos. The original A7 shoots 1080p30 in AVCHD format. I knew PlayMemories Mobile would not transfer RAW photos or videos, so I bought a Camera Connection Kit (the one with Lightning power input). Now I can import RAW photos, but movies still...

Hi, I currently have a Sony A7 and a Viltrox EF Nex II Adapter I use for some older Canon EF Lenses (70-210 USM, 35-135, 22-55).  In good light all of them do have some AF capability, but there's always lots of hunting and as the lights gets lower it doesn't really work at all. This is not really a big problem because I can still focus manually but I do wonder if it would be possible to get a decent AF with my canon lenses. On tight budget I see 2 possibilities: - sell the Viltrox II and buy...

Hello, I purchased Sony A7 III yesterday and noticed, that on some moderately long exposure with high ISO there is quite a distinct single pixel noise. What strikes me strange is, that this noise is even in the .jpg pictures exported directly by the camera. The same problem can be seen in the same spots also on other photos I shot with similar settings. I did not find the spots with low ISO/ short exposure. Here is the picture (f 1.8, t 0.5s, ISO 10000): And here a crop with some hot...

Hi I’m trying to setup my A7III for video on the custom button 1 and 2 for slog2 shooting. On my a6500 this wasn’t a problem, but now on my A7iii I have a dedicated dial for it. Is that why I can’t pre set it and save it? is there any way I can fix it? thanks!
