I have trouble finding that information: how many A7 cameras is Sony selling? For instance, how many were sold in 2016? I was only able to find relative numbers, i.e. "X% of the market", or sales in yen, but nothing about the absolute number of units sold. --http://kamituel.pl

my sony a7 is now bricked after a firmware update failure. i connected the camera to my laptop running windows 10. Just after clicking the run button, it showed that my camera was disconnected. Now i have a totally non-responsive camera. There's only a red light under the battery and nothing else. i tried connecting it again, removing and inserting the battery, trying the update in a pc running windows 7. But nothing is working. someone please help :(

hi all i know there are plenty of A7 vs threads, but after going through loads of them I still feel the need to ask about certain queries. Simply because I've never owned a sony nor a FF sensor camera. My current cameras are an old Eos Rebel, and an om-d m5 mk2 but I only use the latter since it outperforms the eos in almost everything with a 2k budget I can go for a7r, a7ii or a7s, but since i wont be shooting videos, i left a7s aside. my most shooting situation is in low light without...

I have a studio flash system that can be triggered with a flash. Some cameras can set the flash manually. Every Nikon slr I have tried from the cheap old D40 can do this, Some Canons like the Canon 60D, but not the beginner ones, and my old Minolta 7Hi can also set the flash manually. I then typically set the flash to 1/32 or 1/64 or 1/124 so that it would trigger the studio flashes without lighting up the person. In the menu of these cameras you will find three options for flash: ADI, TTL...

It is advertised that Sony S2 type of cable release is for E mount cameras: NEX 5T/a5100/a6000/a7000/a7/a7 II/a7R/a7S/a7R II/a7S II. I bought one of the cable release (hoto below). It plugs into a7 easily, but simply can not be plugged into 5T. The shape of the 2 sockets appear to be the same in shape and size to the naked eye. Can't tell whether the pins inside the sockets are the same. Anyway, it simple can not be inserted into the sucket of 5T. Help please. Thank you. Kuen

Hi!  So I've been trying to figure this out for a long time for my a7, a7ii, and a7rii. I have a wireless remote (the standard one with one button to fire and one with a 2 second delay) that I use when bracketing exposures for hdr.  As far as I can tell, there's absolutely no way to do a 3 or 5 exposure bracket AND use the 2 or 10 second self timer, so I use the remote.  However, does anyone know how to disable AF with the remote?  Even focusing beforehand and putting the camera in MF does...

Hello, I'm new to DPreview. Hope you all are well. I am looking for best lenses for the Sony A7 Rii for Video and product shots. I am working with a client that needs lots of High Def Video as well as Product shots of their small products and large machines. Criteria: Video - Zoom , and a full all in one . (we were using the cannon 18-135 and kinda happy, Wish it would be more of a 12-200) Price is not too much of a concern, quality is. Yet if we can keep it not top of the line that would be...

My friend asked me to take pictures of his artwork, primarily to digitize it for him, but also to take promotional photos for the collection as a whole. There are over 600 pieces I need to take photos of, however it is my first time taking photos of artwork for this purpose. My goal is to figure out a setup and workflow that allows me to take the photos quickly, minimize time spent editing, and - most importantly - deliver quality images for my friend (while also minimizing additional money...

I'm quite happy with my lens setup for my Sony A7, eventually I will upgrade to A7RII. For travels I find 25+55+105 a good balance for me. For events or weddings 35+70-200+135 have worked fine. However, I'm considering a 85mm 1.4 or 1.8 (I have a MF Contax 85mm which I think I will sell), as it would be more versatile during event compared to the 135 f2. This leads me to a question: If you consider the field-of-view difference between 70mm and 200mm, then what would be the exact focal length...
