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...

Hi All, I own A7R2 and 3 lenses - Zony 55mm F1.8, Zony 55mm F2.8 and Zeiss Batis 18mm F2.8 I have recd a nice lens pouch with Zony 55mm F1.8 but nothing with the 35mm :( Also, the second disappointment was from Zeiss by not providing any lens pouch with such a expensive lens :( Currently I have kept Batis 18mm on my camera, 55mm in the pouch it came with and 35mm is wrapped in a soft cloth. I decided to try a few things over the weekend to solve this BUT it is not that simple. I oerderd Sony...

Hello. I own the first gen Sony a7R and this camera has been left in the dust by Sony. Everything's only about the new a7RII. Anyway, I'm looking for my first budget FE lens and was wondering, how's autofocusing with the 250$ Sony FE 50mm with a CDAF-only camera like A7R? Can't find any good test samples on YouTube. Additionally, should I just go with the Sony 28-70mm kit lens rather than the 50mm?

I tried several flavors of a7Rii, a7R2, etc. All resulted in the auto-tag of Sony Alpha 7R. a7Rii .. no a7R2 .. no Sony Alpha 7R2 .. no Sony Alpha 7Rii .. no Sony Alpha 7RII .. no Sony Alpha 7R II .. ?? ... can't check since I did the manual tag previously and then removed the auto tag. Manual tag of a7Rii ... drum roll ... works Except the incorrect tag for the 1st gen remains.

I have an old Phottix Odin transmitter attached to an A7r ii with an adapter. On the other end is a Phottix receiver with an HVL F43AM flash (the older one, not the F43M). I can hit the test button on the Odin transmitter and it will fire the flash attached to the receiver. But with the A7Rii set to Fill Flash (I've also tried Wireless), the flash will not trigger. So it seems like the A7R ii isn't really connecting to the Odin transmitter. I bought the adapter to connect to my old A77 (which...

Must I have Sony Play Memories installed in order to wirelessly transfer images from the camera to the computer?  I have successfully done this, but it seems I can do this using Windows and bypassing the installed Play Memories application.  Or am I wrong? Thanks! Jerry

Hi all, I've been looking, but not finding much information on sensor cleaning for the Sony a6000. I have tried the rocket blower, but there are some small specks still. So now I'm wondering what to do next. I was looking at this from https://photographylife.com/product/sensor-gel-stick-for-sony but I don't know if anyone has reviewed it. I was also looking into using a fluid and cleaning swab method, but I don't know what fluids will work with the a6000 coating. I notice there is a...
