I will be spending a week at Disneyworld soon and am looking for some input on what setup I should take. I love to rent different gear and see what I can do with it. I currently own the Sony A7 with the 28-70 zoom and the 35mm F2.8 prime. I've used lensrentals in the past and like to try out new gear. What would be the better set-up, using the lenses I have with the A7Rii or using the A7 I have with some better glass? I can't afford to rent both the A7Rii and expensive glass. Simply, what...
When you export an uncropped image taken at 70mm, does the resulting image have full resolution (i.e. 6000x4000 on A7, 7360x4912 on A7r, 7952x5304 on A7r II, etc) or is it cropped? Reason I'm asking is, Capture One's generic pincushion distortion correction tool crops the image. When the latest v9.3 came out with native SEL2470Z support I thought perhaps they might handle the corrections differently but the final output is still cropped. So I'm wondering how Lightroom (or any other RAW...
Hello, In the last year I got into the digital photography world just by reading articles, forum posts at dPreview, and following Sony and other Instagram pages with awesome images taken by cameras. I have unknown feeling which makes me really want to own a camera out of my Galaxy Note 4 camera, but whenever I think of buying one, I tell myself "What will I shoot?". Shooting landscapes can be nice, but when I think about it for the long term it seem boring. So what I'm wondering is: How did...
Good evening, I was wondering how might the Metabones or Sigma smart adapters might perform on the original A7. I've been kind of itching to get some Canon glass to compliment my current set up for stills but I've heard these adapters could produce af much slower than native lenses. A lens for example I am curious about is the 17-40 f4L Could anybody give me some insight? Would I be better off upgrading to a newer A7 body if I wish to pursue one of these adapters or would it perform...
I am really confused. I see focus peaking discussed in forums for the A77 and A77ii but nothing about it on the Sony website. I am hoping the A77ii does have focus peaking so I can use older MF lenses with it. That feature on my A7 is amazing. So does the A77ii have it or not? --John Ellis
I'm a 95% landscapes shooter (only MF lenses) and I'm planning to go to Africa for a safari. Now I would like to find a good solution to cover that trip (I need reach and AF). I own a Sony A7 and an old NEX-7. Is there a good solution for my needs? Or it would be better if I got a used m4/3 body and a Panasonic 100-300? --MY WEBSITE:www.marcospinelli.com
I'm a Sony A7 owner and I shoot 95% landscapes. I use only manual lenses (Leica and Olympus OM) and I'm quite happy with them for the kind of pictures I make. Now, I'm planning to go to Africa and I would like a solution to take decent pictures on safaris. I don't need the best option possible, but a decent one at the best price. And I'm considering a m4/3 body (I was thinking about an em10) and one of the two cheap 300s (Oly 75-300 or Pana 100-300). Do you think it would be a good...

Currently, I'm using nex5t with tamron 18-200mm superzoom and I've been quite satisfied with their results for a very long time. But recently, I've been exposed at lots of super sharp results from mighty A7 series, and now I'm looking for some improvement. I know superzooms are not suppose to do a super sharp job but I can't give up wide range zoom capability because I'm a believer of the one and the only camera. I always bring one superzoom camera when I'm going for a travel and never bring...

Hi all, I'm using A7 body and considering to buy an FE 70-300 (SEL70300G) lens to cover the telephoto need. Still trying to make a decision between the 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 and the 70-200mm f4. Personally I prefer longer reach. However, I noticed the lens is about the same weight as the 70-200mmf4, but there's no tripod collar for this lens. As I mainly shoots for landscape, sunset / blue hour stuff, I definitely use tripod a lot. Do I need to get a tripod collar for the FE 70-300? Before...
