So I just got an A7s MkII, and need to test it. What software will I need to be installed/running to capture 4k 30 fps via HDMI? I'm guessing there is something bundled with the Black Magic Design Intensity Pro 4K HDMI Video Editing Card? --Leo S.

Use any lens with a Sony Mirrorless camera ... maybe. However, when it comes to star fields, etc. small deviations from design tolerances can add up.  So, on my Sony A7S, Lifepixel put some glass in there, over the sensor. Is it properly aligned? I replaced the stock camera mounting ring with a "Tough E-mount LT." Seems better. But, when I installed it, did I torque each tiny screw exactly the same? Is the mounting ring properly aligned? Then, I put an adapter on my Pentax-mount lens, to use...

I just ordered the new Sony a7iii with 24mps like the a7, a7ii, and a9. So, I also wonder if the Sony crop 18-105 lens on the new a7iii produces high quality video like the a7riii evidently does. I have researched this and just cannot find a definitive answer. I have read where the a7s with 12 mp does not work very good with crop lenses. The Tony & chelsea Youtube: "Crop lenses in full frame cameras" states the a7rII 48 MP in crop mode is actually 8 MP for Video and therefore crop lenses work...

Hi, I'm in dilemma on choosing which camera to go, I take videos and pictures, so the PIcture Profile is really important for me to color grade, I've seen some articles saying that A7s Slog2 base iso is 3200, does A7s contains other Picture Profile as well such as Cine1/2/3/4 or Slog3?  Will there be a big different for me to pick A7s over A6300? Thanks!

I am using a Godox X1 transmitter for my AD600BM lamp, which works fine. The problem I'm having is that when I set the camera (Sony a7s mark i) to continuous bracketing, it only fires once when the X1 is connected. I have no idea why this might be, or how to stop this from happening - any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi I have been using an A7s for more than a year now. Great camera. Love its low light capabilities. I mainly like to shoot low light pics [as in places with some dim lighting] without a tripod. The lowest hand held shutter speed I have managed to get is 1/30 [which can be a hit or miss affair as some pics still have a shake in them] while 1/50 is my preferred shutter speed with the a7s where I am able to capture images with no shake. Now there have been many situations where I have to...

Hi all, Just bought a used a7s and the first thing I did was test out the much vaunted ISO performance. I stood in my darkened bedroom at night, with just a crack of light coming in through the door. I could make out various details such as the bed, my baby's crib etc with my naked eye so I expected to be blown away as I dialed up the ISO and looked at the screen. Except I was left hugely disappointed and could see almost nothing. I was using a Canon 24-105 f4 L with a Fotodiox adapter. I...

I want to photograph a stage performer, about 40' from my locations, using a Sony A7S full-frame camera. Lighting should be ok. I want the performer to fill about 1/2 the frame. What focal length should I use, and maybe even what lens?? Suggestions appreciated.
