A while back I posted a question about what flash system to buy. I have Sony cameras (Alpha mount, not E-mount), and a nice Minolta 5600HS(D) flash (Minolta's top-of-the-line). I'd like to get my flash off of the camera. My main camera is a Sony A99, but IU also have A77, A55, and A700. My initial use would be experimenting with portrait lighting at home. Later on, I'd like to be able to toss these somewhere at events and shoot as well, and generally, experiment with lighting. People...
I'm really enjoying this combo (I know, the AF is slow sometimes), but every once in a while, my A99 shows that no lens is attached when I use the Tamron. The A99 froze as well a few times. I have lenses from Minolta and Sigma but I only seem to have this problem with the Tamron. I've cleaned the contacts and the aperture is working correctly. I have not seen this issue when the Tamron is used together with my A200, A700 and even my analog Dynax 7. BTW the Tamron is a speed demon on the Dynax...

I love my a7ii, which I bought a year ago. It was a great step from my old A700. But I am still not quite happy with its use in the evening/at night. I am thinking about upgrading it to a7Rii, and I would certainly do it, but I wonder whether it is too late to do it now, if the next camera is to appear soon? Would it make a difference for images like that:
Hi all, recent convert to the A77ii from the A700 and mostly loving it, apart from having to adjust some of my lenses it seems - is there a standard adjustment for each lens I can refer to or do I need to do this for every lens where I see an issue? Every lens on my A700 which pretty much bang on, sharp, especially my 70-300G which is looking a bit of a dog on my A77ii. I want to shoot pictures, not charts, and certainly don't want to pay for some of the expensive focus adjustment...
I'm contemplating adding high speed sync flash in to my shooting again. I used to shoot the HVL-F58 on my A700 with high speed sync and and although I never had much use for it at the time, on camera it worked pretty well. Nowadays I primarily shoot with A77ii and have a set of Yongnuo flashes and trigger that I really like but they are all manual and max sync is 1/250. Wondering if anyone has any experience with any high speed sync flash? Any systems that work with HSS off camera? I...

I got a Sony Alpha A700 when they were first released back like 150 years ago, it's getting a bit long in the tooth. With how much the cameras have advanced and the birth of my son in March I've decided to upgrade and pick up a new A77ii to replace it. My A700 came with an SAL18200 kit lens. I'm thinking I will keep it with the camera and put them up on craigslist together. I have the following Sony lens that I will be keeping - SAL70300G(4.5-5.6/70-300 SSM), SAL50F14(1.4/50), and a SAL100M28...
I need two different parts for my Sony Alpha A700 camera (I love this camera): (1) The mirror. I do not have a part number for the mirror. (2) Main mirror retainer. In another forum I saw that the Sony part number was:3-269-002-01 or 326900201 Thanks in advance Stanford
Hello; I'm using a Sony A700 with an HVL-42am flash and trying to fire the flash from a wireless trigger. I have a pixel pawn (Sony version). The Sony Flash fires when on camera, and it also works when I set the camera and flash into wireless mode. However, the Pixel Pawn does not fire the flash. I believe the issue is with the flash and not the transmitter\receiver set, as I have verified with a non-Sony flash and a hotshoe adapter in the Pixel Pawn receiver from the A700, that I can fire...
