I’m currently shooting with an A7RII, and Sony lenses (16-35/4.0, 24-70/2.8, 90M/2.8, 70-200/2.8) and looking to add another body to my kit. I want something that is specifically excellent for astrophotography (both still and time lapse), and still in the Sony Alpha family so I can benefit from my investment in glass. Additional areas of interest are general time lapse camera with faster frame write speeds in RAW than the A7RII, night video (very minimal), and having a "spare" body for the...

There is so much criticism of the Sony a6500 touchscreen I was wondering if one could just position focal point as it was done on the a6300. I'm aware that the scroll wheel can be customized for different functions. So my question is can you customize it so that it functions just like the a6300 where the scroll whell can be dedicated to manipulating the focal point. Below is a comment about how the scroll wheel functions better on the a6300 than the a6000: "On the a6000 and a7s,  I need...

hi when I connect HDMI cable to Canon EOS 6D or 80D the camera's screen shuts down.  when I connect HDMI cable to my Sony A7s the camera's screen shut down but I found a setting change in menu to fix this so now I can still have view to camera screen when HDMI is connected. but not with EOS 6D, 80D. anyone know how to fix this for the 6D and especially the 80D ?   I would like to be able to connect a device via HDMI, the Teradek VidiU on-camera encoder ,  that has no monitor and so I still...

Hi, I've learned that a7s ii has 1+ stop better iso performance than a7s and both of them share the same sensor. I suspect that 1+ stop gain is from processing. Does that mean that a7s ii simply applies better noise reduction? If so, can I shoot 1+ stop higher iso in a7s then apply noise reduction to get the similar noise as a7s ii?

Hi, Someone just told me that I can simply apply noise reduction on a7s video to match noise with a7sii. He said that a7sii simply applies noise reduction in camera and that is why it looks 1stop better. Is that true? If I take a video with a7s then apply noise reduction, can I make it look like (1stop better) a7sii video quality? I'm not talking about 4k, IBIS, and other things. Just 1stop noise gain.

Hi, B&H is having $500 gift card when you buy a7sii now, but then...a rumor just popped up that a7s iii might have RGBW sensor + cooper wired backlight sensor, which should result in a total of over 1 stop noise improvement.  Looking at amazon.com, b&h, and adorama, they are all having gift card promotions for a7sii, which might mean..that a7siii is coming soon... I want 4k camera with high sensitivity.  Is this time to buy or wait for a7s iii? The only reason I'm tempted to wait for a7s iii...

My a99ii is coming on Monday and I would like to purchase an UWA lens.  zoom/prime doesn't matter to me.  Price, yes, but willing to go to $1000-ish if it is warranted.  I was looking at the Samyang 14/2.8, which is around $300, but lots of complaints about complicated distortion, lots of vignetting and not being too sharp and bad sample variation.  Also, looked at Tamron 15-30/2.8.  Reviews suggest it is very good.  Low distortion sharp and less vignette.  At the same time, the Samyang gets...

Hi, i just bought the Sony A7ii with a 50mm 1.8 lens. I'm going to use it to film projects but i also have a Youtube Channel where I make videos. I can't figure out how to autofocus my own face since I can't see when i'm in focus or not.  Thank you

Hello all, My first post in this forum. I've been following the A7 series since release with great interest, as I have a collection of legacy lenses that I would love to use at native FOV. Now that the price of used A7s is below $1000, I am considering trying one to augment my m43 kit, primarily for landscape and low light work.  I recently re-read the DPR review on the A7, and was surprised how many faults they found. Some of these I suspect have been addressed with firmware updates, but I...

Hello, I read http://www.metabones.com/article/of/Metabones_Explains_the_Significance_of_Its_Native_AF and " An EF lens on A7 Mark II, A7R Mark II or A6300 focused so quickly that it was virtually indistinguishable from a genuine Canon DSLR under some use-case scenarios. Nevertheless, Sony's contrast-detect AF cameras such as A7S Mark II and early phase-detect cameras such as A6000 still took seconds to lock using an EF lens, and that remained the final frontier to conquer before we could lay...
