I've started using Iridient lately and have found something I don't understand. I've been going back through some older images from Olympus em5, Fuji xe1, and Sony Nex 7. All the images from the Fuji and the Sony come into Iridient rather dark and require quite a bit of alteration to get what I want. However, the raw files from the Olympus come into Iridient looking normal. I use Bridge for my image management and the files from all three cameras look, for the most part, well...
Hi. I am trying to decide on the best camera vs price - taking into account lenses I would need. I currently have a Nex7 with a Sony 1.8 50 prime and a Sony 55-210. I mostly photograph children (keen amateur) - often indoors. I'd also like to begin doing a bit more video. The a7rii sounds amazing but I'm worried about the cost of lenses and get somewhat confused about cheaper non Sony options using adapters. Any suggestions about which camera to go for and which lenses would be greatly...
I'm a 95% landscapes shooter (only MF lenses) and I'm planning to go to Africa for a safari. Now I would like to find a good solution to cover that trip (I need reach and AF). I own a Sony A7 and an old NEX-7. Is there a good solution for my needs? Or it would be better if I got a used m4/3 body and a Panasonic 100-300? --MY WEBSITE:www.marcospinelli.com
All, Although there are variations on this situation sprinkled about online, I have been unable to get a clear fix on my exact issue. I hope you can help. I have a Sony RX10M3. I just purchased a Phottix Ares transmitter/receiver set for use with my Sony HVLF 43m Flash. Aware that the Phottix needs a standard hot shoe, I ordered Sony's ADP-MAA adapters. However, I was mistaken; the ADP-MAAs permit use of a Sony Auto-Lock Accessory (not a standard hot shoe) with Mi-equipped cameras. Does...
I always use auto white balance and shot exclusively in raw. When I open up an image shot outdoors in adobe camera raw, it is consistently cool looking. Bright sunlight photos are often around 4800. Of course it is easy to correct, but this is the only camera I have used that is consistently cool. Has anyone found this to be true with their a6300? As a side note, I have a voigtlander 15mm screw mount left over from film days. The 15 was very problematic on my nex 7 but cornerfix...
I recently bought a NEX7 (Hasselblad Lunar), as well as the above mentioned adapter. It works fine, but i have the odd problem of it beeing able to turn a few degrees left to right, while its locked in the E mount of the camera. Also this play, as ill call it, is also temperature dependent, and camera independent (tried the adapter on my sisters A6000, with the same result). The adapter works electrically, and focuses to infinity with all my A-Mount glass, so at least something. So, i was...
Hi everyone, I have a Sony NEX-7 body and picked up a used Tamron 90mm SP Di F mount (Nikon). I have a Fotodiox nik-nex adapter that fits both the lens and the body. However, I don't know how to set the aperture. The lens does have a 'catch' that opens/closes the aperture manually. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make that work with this adapter. Perhaps I have the wrong one. I picked this up off Amazon at this link. I'm guessing, since I see no mechanism on the adapter...
I'm mostly a still photographer - not much video - and classify myself as a competent amateur. So I'm wondering if the improved sensor and focusing is enough to justify selling my NEX-7 and replacing it with the a6300. I'd like to hear from others who have direct personal experience with this replacement. I can read the specs, but am more interested here in the subjective assessment by those who have used both cameras. Thx.

I'd like to ask a question about converting a NEX 7 to IR. I know that the NEX 7 has weird purple corners with wide angle rangefinder lenses, as well as resolution issues. I have a Rokinon 8mm 2.8 version 1 fisheye which shows purple corners with some resolution loss (and seems to vignette as well) on mine. After an IR conversion, we would expect not to see purple corners anymore. Would there still be some residual aberration? Resolution loss / smearing / vignetteing? Has anyone tried any...
