I'm getting a bit frustrated with the crop sensor lenses. I just want to be able to buy a lens for exactly what it is and not have to deal with the crop factor. For instance, I don't have much choice when it comes to a "true" wide angle lenses...Yes it's still wide angle but I want to be able to choose an ultra wide angle and get exactly that... The A7s, A7ii and A7r...(the others are out of my price range) Would anyone recommend that I upgrade to one of the FF's and which one would be a good...

Hey, I'm using the a7s (the original one) for timelapse photography with two adapted Canon lenses (17-40mm f/4L and 70-200mm f/4L) and I have a problem: Whenever I take a timelapse sequence at a certain aperture, for example f/8, a few images in the sequence are too bright and appear to be shot with the aperture wide open (although I set the camera to stop down). The EXIF data still shows the aperture I've chosen on the camera but apparently the lenses didn't stop down for those...

Hi I have basic beginners knowledge of the practical aspect of Astrophotography having wanted to pursue this for quite a long time. I would be grateful to hear what anyone has to say in response to my questions. I have provided some information based on what I see other beginners being asked when they first seek help. What I would like to photograph and process are (if possible) images of deep space objects. Generally objects found within the messier and caldwell catalogues. I understand that...

Hello! On a recent shoot I noticed my footage has a strange vertical blue line, but only when shooting in 60p or 120p. None of the other settings seems to make a difference. It's not from the lens, and I've updated the firmware and "cleaned" the sensor. I'm thinking I probably have to send the camera in to get looked at, but I figured I'd check with you folks to see if anyone has had a similar experience. Thanks!

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...

We're considering including a few days at a game park camp in Sri Lanka early next year, and I see the owner can rent some decent equipment for game drives, including a Canon 600 f4 no less. Does anyone have any experience with one of these adapted to an A7 body? I have an A7S, and might also have an A7Rii by then. I might try it out for myself anyway since I think one or two members of my local camera club have got that particular Canon bazooka. If so, which adapter would people...

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)...

Hey, So I have an issue with the A7S and have no idea what it is. I am shooting at 100fps but when I take it into premier and hit clip, modify, interpret footage it constantly keeps it the same speed, no matter what I shoot or option I take. Literally have no idea what to do. Any ideas? Thanks George

Not sure if it's anything to do with it but I've just started shooting full frame with a metabones adapter and canon fd primes. On a few of the photos there is a yellow horizontal type of flare through the images. It happened with more than one lens so I've discounted a lens problem. Around 70% of the images I took today were fine, but this problem occurred in the other 30%.  Could anyone help me please?  thanks a lot.
