Hey guys, I've been trying to figure out what is best for me to do in regards of start charging for my photography for some time now but I can't wrap my head around it that easy as we are talking about big bucks and what I am after here is to spend my budget the most wisely way I possibly can and not waste it on the urge of just buying something expensive as I know this is not how it's done. In my case, I own a Canon 600D with a 50mm and 10-22mm for the past 5 years now. I've been shooting...

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 all,I've been shooting with my A7r for a year now. I'm a novice and been practicing with the Canon FD 35mm, Minolta 50mm and a Leica Tele-elmerit 90mm. All of which are manual lenses.I feel like I need to upgrade my arsenal a bit. I'm saving up for a FE lens (they're so freaking expensive.) Which FE lens do you recommend I should have in addition to my lens collection? All advice is greatly appreciated! Cheers! Lens collection so far:Canon FD 35mm [Most used, love the sharpness and...

I am enjoying using the a7R with metabones 4 adapter and my canon lenses. a couple of questions with manual focus 1.  Is there any way to use DMF focus?  if the tab on my lens is on manual focus or autofocus DMF seems to be unavailable. 2. When I am in manual focus, zooming in for accurate focus, is there any way that touching/pressing the shutter does not take me out of magnified focus? thanks  --http://www.flickr.com/photos/kevindar/

I bought a techart adaptor to use with LeicaM lenses. While I have no problem connecting adaptor - lens-Sony A7R2, I am lost from there. I can get the adaptor with 35, 50, 90 and 135 lenses to focus , but I don't understand the camera settings to use for exposure. Images are vastly overexposed I've used manual adapters on this camera and the a6000, but I'm missing some probably obvious adjustments to the A7R 2 body. Help! --Bob M

Does any body use the LCD screen protector on their cameras? I recently found out that Sony Sony PCK-LM15 is very affordable for my A7RII so can buy it if it is useful. Please let me know about your experience, thanks.

Anyone using a Sony a6300/a6000 and Sony a7II with adapted lenses. I have quite a few lenses from various manufacturers and same with adapters. Just sold my son's D5100 and D300 so he needs a new small camera. He also has some good Nikon Dx lenses (12-24 f4G) and 16-85vr. Any noticable difference in AF/MF in the APC and full frame bodies? Cannot afford a Sony a7SII or a7RII and he wants smaller than D500 (he has a D7100) . Fuji is not supported in India. Posted here since he would only be...

I'm seeing conflicting numbers on how much sensor area is being used to produce it's UHD 4K in S35 in terms of Horizontal Field Of View (HFOV)? The reason I'm looking for these numbers is to more accurately measure the true crop model in S35 while shooting UHD 4K for shot matching with other 4K footage (in my case UHD 4K in FF on A7Sii). Since Sony is doing their oversampling magic in S35 with no pixel binning or skipping and don't actually publish precise crop measurement (that I can find)...

Zeiss brand lenses have the rubber lip around the mount and a snug fit, The 85mm 1.4 GM kinda has a lip around the mount. None of the other native sony/zeiss or sony lenses have a lip on the mount and I'm looking at the 50 1.4 FE and 70-200mm 2.8 FE and they don't appear to have lips on the mount. Does it matter? I shot in the rain on my a7rII with my batis 85mm 1.8 only because it had a seal. Am I just being paranoid? What's the point of having weather resistant lenses when the mount...
