Morning, long time lurker in need of some advice please. I recently got hold of a old (but mint) A7R & new Sony 50mm 1.8 and I'm loving it. I currently have a D7100 with a handful of lenses (70-300mm, Sigma 10-20 3.5, 35mm 1.8) and I mostly take landscape shots and the occasional outing with the 70-300mm (mainly for the reach for shots at the Zoo etc, no sports or fast moving subjects). I'm becoming more and more tempted to sell the 7100 + 35mm and get a Nikon - E mount adaptor, I know the...

To all Sony A7Rii owners, and for those of you who own any Sony cameras, even to you photo enthusiasts folks, can you answer this question? I'm confused about this photo's EXIF/metadata. This photo was taken using a Sony A7RII and it says it was on a Normal program with Auto Exposure, it also says that the Flash was On, but how come it had a 1/1600 shutter speed? was it done via HSS? if it was, shouldn't it be at least on the Shutter, Aperture or Manual modes at least? given that the flash...

Using Godox x1t-s with Rotolight Neo 2 and when the Godox is turned on then the settings on the camera do nothing in the viewfinder. I'm shooting in Manual mode with manual ISO. I change the Shutter Speed and Aperture and nothing in the preview changes at all. With the Godx turned on it just gives me a viewfinder like preview, like a traditional DSLP.  Once the Godox is turned off then everything starts adjusting like it should. I've looked through the menus for flash compensation and could...

My a7r died (won't turn on) so I sent it into Royal Camera, Hanover Park IL for repair and they have stated the following (REPAIR POWER SYSTEM AND MAINBOARD. REPLACE POWER BOARD. CHECK VERTICAL GRIP. )  I also sent in my vert. grip (Sony brand) just to check if something might have happen and the grip made the camera fail. $475 repair.  My question to all of you is this a common problem that the main board fails. I don't want to pay for the repair and then have it happen again.  Any advice...

I recently picked up a used A6000 to use as a second camera.  My "daily driver" is an A7R.  I took the A6000 to Michigan this weekend to shoot some lighthouse photos.  I was shooting with the FE 70-300mm.  I was shooting around sunrise, low to no wind, camera and lens on a tripod with a tripod collar on the 70-300.  Plus, I was using a remote.  So I feel as though the camera was really stable.  I wasn't touching it, nor should it have been moving. I have instances were a photo is very crisp...

What would u recommend me, I use a sony a7r with LA-EA4 35 mm Full-Frame A-Mount Adapter and extension tubes to do macro, but I can´t manage to do extreme macro, not close enough and an excessive vignetting, would it better to use a raynox magnifier lens? (I have the 100 mm 2.8 minolta macro lens). thanks.

Hi - A generous friend has lent me an A7R III to use while he is away. Anyone have a link to a set-up article (or video) that you have used. Hate the Sony manual.

Yesterday my A7R broke, mid time lapse. Do you guys have any recommendations for repair shops, or if it's even cost effective to repair. I do a lot of time lapse and according to the metadata I've got 136,847 actuations on the camera. Thanks! nik --http://www.flickr.com/photos/nik_billings/
