I have a project that requires 8 hour continuous recording of 4K video.  I'm looking for an action cam or small size camera that can provide a horizontal FOV somewhere between 90 and 130 degrees.  The main requirement is to be able to get the signal out, preferably via HDMI, to an external recording device.  I do not need image stabilisation.  If the device has it then I will need to turn it off.  I need fixed/manual focus rather than auto focus.  Finally good auto exposure is a bonus....

I have a relatively new a7r3, and the display shifted to the right, so I can't see everything. Does any one know if I can fix this in settings, or if it will require service?

Someone mentioned that the A7R2 is capable of in body focus stacking, I checked the manual and could not find any reference to that. Can anyone answer that question? Thank you.

I'm considering both a a7s and a7r. The a7s has 4k, but records with a 12mp sensor while the a7s can only record 1080p but with a 36mp sensor. Which one is sharper? Or does one of them better in a different way? Thanks!

I am an aspiring filmmaker/cinematographer and want to get into photography. I am planning to purchase a used camera from the Sony A7 series. I know that the A7 ll has image stabilization, which is a huge bonus. On the other hand, the A7r has a 36MP sensor, which means it will have pretty good image quality. The A7 ll has a 24MP sensor, and the A7s has a 12MP sensor. Question: does the A7s record 4k or not? I'm confused! I'm wondering if I should go for the A7r with its 36MP sensor, or the A7...

The next camera I'm going to get is going to be my first "real camera". I'm a filmmaker  (make short films) and want to get into photography. My price range is $1000 or under.      When I first started looking around, I found the G85. I thought it was the PERFECT camera with its 4k video and photo and many features like IBIS, a touch-screen, and so on. But the awful auto focus and small sensor really got to me, and I really want good bokeh for my films as well as good auto focus. THEN, I came...

im trying to decide between the 70-200 2.8 and the 100-400 4.5-5.6 what are is the aperture when adding the 2x to the 70-200? Because im thinking I can use the 70-200 at 2.8, then use the 2x and essentially have the 100-400 as well but at maximum 5.6? im mostly interested in this lens for landscape and macro if possible, not moving objects. I have wide angles but want this as well for travel. Did consider the 70-300 but I’m so used to 1.4-2.8 aperture I cant see myself shooting higher If...

Hi, I'm an Italian guy that loves shooting photos and making videos, I currently own a Panasonic GX80 with 25 f1.7, Oly 17 f1.8 and a kit lens, with a lot of battery for backups. I've got a strange story behind me, I started making photo with a Canon 1100D that I've upgraded to 60D, then I sold my Canon gear (50 f1.8 II, Tamron 17-50 f2.8 no VC) and bought this little monster of Panasonic. Back in April I've bought one Sony A7 to try the FF sensor, it was amazing but I was not satisfied by...

hello! yes, it's not all about sensors. I've already have an a6000 with SEL50F18 and few vintage lenses with adapters (Minolta rokkor 50f1.4 and 35f1,8) I sold my Sony a7 few weeks agò and now i'm trying to figure out if i should buy a three years old but FullFrame camera (a7Rii) or a brand new Flagship Apsc camera (Fuji XH1). On the web, everyone talks about the incredible Fuji sensor, and its sharpness quality. Otherwise, the sony sensor is one of the best sensor ever made (accordong...
