Interested in one of these to supersede the OVF APS-C Sonys I used. (Those trying to persuade me to mirrorless need not apply). I am interested in the full frame as a travel camera with 28-70 f2.8 & 50mm f1.7. No wildlife or sports necessary. Specs of these two are quite good considering they are 6 or 7 years old. There seem to be a few highly priced a900 listings which just sit there unsold. a850 a bit rarer. Does anyone know the actual selling price right now? I looked at test images and...
DEar all, I live in Argentina, I have a digital camera SONY alpha SLT-A99. I bought the camera in france and I need a part. HEre in Argentna is IMPOSSIBLE to buy and SONY Argentina told me that it is also impossible to tell me which is the tehnical name of that part. And even more, they don't know if the part bought in argentina will works in a camera bought in Europe! The mechanism that is broken is the DIAPHRAGM MECHANISM (I dont even know if these are the right words in english!) could you...
Hey folks! I'm looking to upgrade to FF. My minor in college (so many years ago) was printmaking. Although I've had a few DSLRs since the film days, I've struggled to find anything in my budget that could compare with the build, VF, and DOF of the Canon F1 and medium format gear I cut my teeth on. I'm also starting from scratch, system-wise. I'm into absolutely minimum ISO landscape work. I've got it narrowed down to two bodies: Canon 1DSII and Sony A850/A900. I've done a lot of research...

Although I've had a few DSLRs since the film days, I've struggled to find anything in my budget that could compare with the build, VF, and DOF of the F1 and MF stuff I cut my teeth on. I'm also starting from scratch, system-wise. I'm into absolutely minimum ISO available light landscape stuff. I've got it narrowed down (at present) to two bodies: Canon 1DSII and Sony A850/A900.

I would like to find out if there exists some form of Flash Grip similar to the old Minolta grips like the CG1000, from an independent company. I do not think that Sony have realized the simplicity of those grips. There were no wires to connect the flashguns on the CG1000 and yet one would have been able to use 2 flash units (1 on the camera and 1 on the grip) both working simultaneously. I use Sony bodies now to keep using the older minolta optics. Thanks & regards, bartpx

While I rely on my Sony A900 bodies and Minolta/Sony lenses for stills, I got a Nikon D800 when it came out. D800's main-sensor LiveView and clean video (that I use with Atomos Ninja 2) without any pellicle mirror were compelling enough to diversify the lens mounts. While I am super-happy with my first Nikon camera, to my amazement in some situations it locks up and shows Err. In all my years of using Minolta film and Sony digital slrs, with manual lenses etc., none of then have ever locked...

Hi All,I recently purchased a Lexar Professional 400x 64GB for use with my Sony Alpha 900. I have previously used a range of CF cards including Transcend and Kingston. I have never had any problems. I upgraded to Lexar after attending the Formula 1 in Austin where I gobbled up several cards capacity when shooting RAW. After Christmas and New Year - I returned home with a card full for shots - I started downloading to Aperture on an iMac. The download failed at some point and I could not get...
