Hi guys I am not sure this is the right forum for this question but I ask anyway. I have my Sony A7R converted to IR lately by LP. I want to do some long exposure in IR. I tested my 10 steps variable ND but found the colour is affected with the filter on. I borrow a BW 10 steps fixed ND to test it again and found the result the same. Anyone has experience with this issue?  Kad

I've been using my A7 for a while now. It started to get a bit annoying that it sometimes irreversibly ruins my nice sun stars. I tried to google it how much better the A7R was in this regard but I couldn't find a clear answer. Some of the users experiences reflections with some lenses (e.g Zeiss 35/2.8 FE) but others have beautiful sun stars even at the edge of the frame. So I like to ask the opinion of the A7R users about it. I don't want ($$$) A7II or A7RII at the moment. These happened...

so I moved from Canon full frame to Sony a7r. I have a 400W china strobe that is canon compatible with included transmitter (http://www.80light.cn/en/en_index.htm) I have recently bought the Godox AD200 with X1T-S but it is not powerful especially for HSS so instead of maybe buying another Godox AD600B I was thinking maybe exist some sort of adaptor for the sony hotshoe that can attach a canon transmitter.

I am potentially making a switch from Nikon full frame to Sony FF.   I have the A6500 with the 16-70, 24 mm 1.8 and 50 mm 1.8 OSS, 55-210 (the inexpensive one I think that is right) I am deciding whether to shoot one A7rii or get two A7Rii bodies with battery grips each OR With just the A6500 and one A7Rii where the A6500 is for backup and for other needs. My idea is to return the 24 mm 1.8 and 50 mm 1.8 OSS I just got and BUY the 55 mm 1.8 and 25 mm F 2.0 Batis to use on both the A6500 and...

both cameras with the same aperture setting, same distance from the subject....how is this possible? Depth of field is 0.86ft  Depth of field is 1.29 ft  I don't get it. So far, I've been told that the 3 things that change the depth of field are 1) Aperture 2) Focal length of the lens and 3) Distance between the camera and the subject. However, based on the depth of field calculator, If I place same lens (say a 50mm) on both apsc (Sony a6000 in this example) and FF camera (Sony A7R in this...

Shot with my camera Sunday, Monday I turned it on, tried to fire off a shot and nothing.  Checked settings for back button focusing no settings changed. Settings reset performed and still no response from shutter, and no attempt to auto focus.  Only way it has responded was by pressing the AF/MF then firing shutter off.  Called Sony and they recommended factory reset. Ok fine,  did that and still nothing.   Now I'm at the mercy of Precision repair pre-quote $375 bucks.  Anyone experience this...

Hi guys, I'm just struggling on which next step to take: Right now I'm a proud owner of a A7RII and I'm pretty happy with it. Some features of the A9 however let me wonder if I might switch to that model. In the end the only decision point for me is the resolution. To be honest the file-size of the raw-images that my A7RII produces can sometimes really be a challenge but sometimes I'm happy to be able to crop the images here and there... I never use any image to do a big print where the...

Hi All, Got a great deal on a new A7r II, so jump on it. One thing I thought I could use it that I've being a photograph (voluntary) for my Son's football matches where I've been using ym Sony A& mkii with a 70-200 f4 lens. (Sometimes using a6000 with the same lens) I'm wanting longer reach, so in my mind I could use the A7r mkii with this lens, and then in Light Room crop the size to the 24mp of what the A7 mkii image sizes are. I'm more than happy with this resolution, and in a way it will...

Hi!  I just finished shooting a video on my A7r and copied the files over to my mac. There video on the mac looks washed out and over exposed. The building in the background almost disappears into white though on the sony viewfinder or display the image is more balanced and clear. I have tried to edit the brightness etc but can't get the video to look how it does on the camera. How can I retain the original looking footage as seen on the Sony? Washed out image on my MBP More balanced and...

Hello guys I can't make up my mind. I finally bought the a6500 and it came with the 16-70mm F/4 Zeiss I also purchased a Rokinon 12mm F/2.0 Manual focus for Landscapes. I'm leaving to Alaska July 29th for 12 days. The new 100-400 is coming out July 31st so thats out of the Question, I rented the 70-200mm F/2.8 with a 2x teleconverter and used it in the smoky's and the pictures came out great. But i feel that in Alaska i'll need more reach. I was thinking of renting the Sigma 150-600mm Sport...
