Please forgive my ignorance in this subject but I have never found a solid answer. I know that many modern indie film makers or people like me will export their videos at a 2.35:1 or 2.40:1 aspect ratio to help give the "cinematic look" but I want to know why and what it adds to a scene. I have some knowledge of anamorphic lenses and know that they compress a wide image in to a 35mm frame and I guess I understand the reason for those. When I go to the theaters and see a new movie am I seeing...

My holdings on cameras are the Sony A 7II with two prime lenses and a  prime legacy lens, which are the Sony/Zeiss f/1.8, 55mm. and the Zeiss Loxia f/2, 35mm. and the legacy, Leica M Summicron f/2, 90mm. I decided I wanted to go with a more wide angle lens so I bought a used Zeiss ZM Biogon 21mm. f/4.5.  I decided I didn't need a fast lens as most of my shots would be landscapes, architecture, street photography and the very narrow streets in Europe, nearly all daylight shooting. When I saw...

Hi, I have 3 things I'm confused about for awhile.  1, The AE/AF lever thing. I don't understand why is this better than using two simple customizable button instead? They might set to AE/AF lock by default. They could fit the same room. I could even press both at once when I need... 2, Why cannot use eye AF and regular AF together. I mean set as a back button or the shutter button when I half press if it detect eye set for the eye if it doesn't just use the set method like center or wide or...

I actually have 2 questions regarding C1- the first is if Sony still offers the free software download of the express version with camera purchase? I see one listed for C1 9.2 express, but hadn't heard if Sony had continued the offer. I took advantage of that offer with the last A7 series I bought, and also upgraded to the pro version. That would be c1Pro 8.2.1.23. I did not take Microsoft's generous offer to upgrade to 10, and so there is no anniversary debacle; my C1 still works on...

If you had to decide on 1 lens for the Sony A7 Mark II what would it be? "Preferably Sony"My A7 Mark II body is about to arrive end of next week, and I still haven't figured out what first lens I would like to buy...I've looked into the Sony 16-35mm, Sony 35mm,Sony 55mm and the kit lens 28-70mm. I will be traveling around New Zealand and Australia, and I would like to take a wide range of photos. Thanks!

I have the Samyang 24m F1.4 for Sony E....  need a parent for it.. I'm already using the Sony a5100.. but I want to take it to the next level been looking at ebay at the A7 plain, A7S, A7R and A7 II.... the A7R II is out of my price comfort. Any thoughts on what camera would be best for timelapse, northern lights and meteor showers ? I appreciate the A7S is the ISO king, but for my timelapse at least I'm ok with a pic every 20-30 seconds so I don't need crazy ISO speed... My understanding is...

hi everyone, This is my first thread in the forum. And I am very sorry since English is not my native language, so I will try to make it as clear as I can. I am using A6000 and have a question in mind about the focal length effect of crop and fullframe sensor. is it the same effect when you shoot with, for example, a6000 + 35/1.8 comparing to a7 + 52/2.7 for a same frame of a picture? I mean, as i know, when you shoot portrait try to have a same frame, different focal length will give...

Hi All, looking for some advice and experience from Fuji users. First, a short bit of background. My primary photographic interests are hiking/landscapes (with occasional wildlife), and photographing my now 6 month old daughter.I've been using Olympus for a couple of years, and 6 months ago picked up a Sony A7II + 16-35/4 & 55/1.8 at a ridiculously cheap price (so I can sell it without losing any money at all). The Olympus was great (I liked the menus, the handling/ergonomics and the good...
