Hi Guys, I'm currently in charge of the photography team for a Thai unsupported South Pole 45 days expedition on foot by end of 2018. I'm not by any means a photography pro and seriously need your help. We need 3 pro grade cameras for the 10 person team, each fixed with prime lenses. I understand that zoom lenses are out of the question in such polar conditions (-20 to -40), that is capable of filming for a documentary grade for a local TV network and also shoot beautiful pictures for the...

I owned four Sony cameras (A7, A7R, RX100III and now the RX10III) and none of these features a simple (and helpful) timer-counter for the exposures on board. Why? Is it so hard (even via firmware) to insert it and show ? If I think that all the Samsung cameras I owned (and I own) have it ... even others compact ones have it. NX1 and NX500 not only have a display counter, but even multiple exposures programmer.Having to use a smartphone, a watch or a timer application seems to me boring and...

Hello, I'm having a hard time enjoying shooting with the a7r due to the uncomfortable feel and weighting of the camera when using larger fast primes. I have the factory vertical battery grip. It certainly helps but it's just not enough when using the 85mm or 135mm and above. Question: Does anybody out there have a solution via Cage-Grip type set up or something just genrally more meaty to grab on to? I was thinking of trying to custom craft something out of a flash bracket and pistol grip or...

Dear colleagues, i have recently purchased Sony A7-II as replacement to stolen A7r and discovered that using Commlite Autofocus EF-Nex (Firmware v.2) adapter Sony's Steadyshot is NOT WORKING with this adapter and Canon TS-E 24mm L II lens regardless manual or auto focal length selected in Camera Menu. Only Steadyshot-OFF icon blinks for a moment during camera power-up. Have anyone experienced such behaviour? --http://flickr.com/photos/qwz

Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could give an account on how the Zeiss Biogon 35/2.8 works adapted on a Sony a7r? (No the A7rII which is too big for my purposes).  Thanks in advance --https://stefanenator.smugmug.com

I will soon spend a week as crew aboard a 41-foot sailboat for race training. Obviously I would like to come back with nice memories (stills and video), when time allows. I am mostly interested to discuss pictures in the boat I will be: the crew, the sails… My cameras are A7R, alpha 6500 - and Sony FDR X3000R action cam. I have a few lenses, including 24-70 and 24-240 Sony zooms, the Sony 55mm prime, and the Samyang 14/F2.8. But it seems to me to take pictures onboard a sailboat, which is a...

Excuse me if this question has already been addressed, but this omission has been one of my concerns with the A7R cameras. I shoot Canon and Nikon--well, not so much Canon anymore due to IQ concerns. I still have a tremendous amount of Canon glass that I love, so rather than wait for Canon to catch up, the A7R series seemed to be a suitable--at least short-term--solution. However, the lack of non-lossy compressed RAW has concerned me. Uncompressed RAW files for Nikon are massive. Even...

I have been having trouble with star trails lately. I have tried 2 copies of Rokinon 14 mm and 2 copies of Irix 15. For all of them the center of the image is nice without trails and the corners are really bad on all the lenses. I use A7R with canon adapter for Irix and tried canon rokinon and sony rokinon. Exposure time i have tried is 20 sec to 30 sec which is way less than what is recommended, also different apertures. Any advice thoughts or experience with rokinon or Irix lenses with sony...

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 been struggling to decide between A7R and A7II, i do pretty much landscape, street, time lapse and astrophotography almost 90 % of the time. So dynamic range and low light performance is important to me. I can use DXO comparison up to certain extent but sometimes it is not indicative of real performance. e.g 6D has better low light performance compared to D610 in real life but not as per DXO. Anyone out there who has tried both and can advice one way or the other? I am slightly...
