Hi, I am looking for a camera that has good dynamic range. How does one determine this from looking at the specs? Is it simply looking for cameras with high ISO? The two cameras I am considering are the A7 and A7S. Which of these has the best dynamic range and good low light performance?  Is high dynamic range synonymous with good low light performance? I have reservations about the a7s mainly because of the price and the low pixel count, but would be willing to go for it if the dynamic range...

Hello everyone! I need some feedback!! I already have a couple of primes: -28mm f2 FE -35mm f2.8 Zeiss -55mm f1.8 Zeiss -85mm f1.8 FE -90mm F2.8 G And wanted some feedback on which zoom lens to buy, either the 70-200mm f2.8 or 24-70mm f2.8... I am about to start a wedding photography/portrait business, and have always used primes. Zooms will be new to me and guess the the 70-200mm should be the right choice due to the filling a gap in focal length I dont have... but the 24-70 would make my...

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...

Hi, I recently started vloging for youtube on topics covering guitar/music.gear reviews etc.I already owned an A6000 so this is what I used. I was aware a lot of people complain about the lack of a 180 flip screen but i thought I would be able to monitor the output using the smart remote output on my tablet. Turns out this doesn't support video mode, leaving HDMI out or a hot shoe screen my only options. ! I was wondering if anyone has successfully used smart remote on any of the Sony models?...

Alright, so that title doesnt explain much. Heres my situation.  I own the sony a6000 with the two kit lenses (curse my budget) as well as a Rokinon 14mm 2.8. My wife shoots canon, and I have been very tempted to switch over to canon so I can share lenses with her. I found a killer deal on a canon 70-200 2.8 non is L series lens, so I bought it, thinking I would sell my a6000 and pick up the 6d mk ii. However, after extensive research on the mk ii, it seems that although it is full frame, the...

Hi, I have been using my A7R for over 18 months and have been frustrated with the amount of debris on the sensor in comparison to my Nikon cameras. I accept that as a mirrorless design there is no protection from dust and debris when a lens is changed but this has been getting worse, so much so I returned the camera which has an extended warranty to the manufacturer. They returned the camera having changed the mount plate "MB N Plate B 755" and an "individual, Glass AS" all FOC within six...

Hey guys, I'm new to this site but I need to rent a mix of accessories and cameras for an upcoming shoot in Shoreditch. Didn't get to bring all my kit with me and I'm looking for recommendations for companies? Have been told BorrowFox, Fixation and Four corners are all quite good.. Any recommendations? Thanks Andy

Hi all, Glad to finally register here after reading so many google hits from this community. I started photography with an A57 and a bunch of the top minolta picks for price and performance. 70-210, 50, 28, 28-105 etc. I know nothing else about any other type of cameras or lenses. My A57 is in a wheelchair and almost dead so I moved up to the A77ii which made great sense due to the lens compatibility. Now my A77ii is making funny noises when shooting bracketed 2.0EV3 I have actually managed...

Hi, I just recently purchased the Sony a7sii and took it out on a shoot. I shot in 1080 30p PP-Off, Steady Shot off, Zebras on, Peaking on. Im here in south Texas so its hot 100 degrees. The camera did over heat. The issue that I am having with my NEW camera, aside from over heating, is this strange pixel band across the image. It stays there for 15 frames. This is the only time I have notice it, but if it happened here, I can only assume its in other shots as well. Can someone tell me what...

Hi. I'm looking to upgrade from my current camera to either a Sony A7S or A7ii. I'll be doing both (semi) professional photography and a lot of video work. The A7ii looks like it takes fantastic video, but I know the A7S has it beat. What's keeping me from the A7S is that it takes lower resolution photos, and I'm not sure I'm ok with that trade-off. Here's what I think will help decide though: I'm upgrading from a Canon 600D. Either one of these cameras is going to be a big upgrade. So I...
