hi, have just sold my nikon d700 as it was getting a bit too heavy to use off the tripod and the count was getting high. i'm now torn between the (older) sony a7 with kit lens and the new sd with kit lens. my paying gigs for stills (i am a video producer by profession) is generally shooting 2d art work and 'general' gallery shots, artist portraits, etc.,  - so i'm pretty much in control of the lighting, etc.,  wouldn't mind using it for general work, but also have nex7 which i use for happy...

Hello All, We are planning for a SAFARI vacation this year.. I am in process of upgrading my NEX-7 to 6500.. i have few nice Zeiss lenses. my question is..Does a6500 a good camcorder? or should i buy sony / canon HD camcorder too? I have used my nex-7 for recording in past But not quite happy with the usability as a camcorder. Its not so comfortable to zoom in and zoom out like camcorder. I don't want to miss out any thing on video recording side. I am also iphone 7 Plus user, which i can...

I have an new A6500 on the way from Adorama. It will be supplanting my trusty NEX-7. The Sony A6500 lens compatibility page says I must upgrade the firmware on my SEL-1855 and SEL-55210 lenses to lens system software Ver.02 in order to support Fast Hybrid AF on my new camera. I already upgraded my SEL-55210 lens through the Sony NEX-7 support page. The Sony support site only offers SEL-1855 lens firmware support through the cameras that the lens was bundled with, as I believe the SEL-1855 was...

I may be missing something here but I need to know. After upgrading from a NEX-3 to a NEX-7, I'm currently wading through all the settings, attempting to get to grips with things. My question is with regard to the focus points. On both cameras there are 25. I may sound like a complete newbie (which I am actually), but can I view all these points on screen simultaneously? At the moment (and on the NEX-3 also), there are 9, grouped in the centre of the screen. Am I completely misunderstanding...

Back in the film days we horticultural photographers always had trouble with blue flowers that reflected infra-red light. They looked purple on film, not blue, and there was no easy way to correct that. Come the digital age and all that changed. The colors recorded correctly as we humans see them. recently though, I switched from the Sony NEX-7 to the Fuji X-T2 and while I'm happy with just about everything with the camera, the dreaded purple-blue is back. I can only assume that's because of...

I have the two older alpha full frames with lots of glass , and the nex 7 with some lenses that I carry as backup when working and as my vacation camera . I'm flirting with the idea of a rx1 in my pocket due to it's size. Can't imagine having the a99 with 35mm lens on me all day long. First question. So , with the nex 7 I mostly use the zeiss 24mm (LOVE this little guy), this combo makes it analogues to the RX1 r2 with the 35mm lens it has; someone that used the zeiss 24mm , how does it...

Has anyone successfully taken sports photos (e.g. at evening  high school soccer games) in low light? What do you recommend? I have an NEX-7, 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 and 50mm f /1.8 lenses and can shoot on the field. I've been using my NEX-7 for awhile, but am a bit inexperienced.

Hello fellow Sony users. I am a relatively inexperienced filmmaker, and I have a relatively low budget. Therefor I use older cameras that I get cheap, and then I upgrade slowly when I find out what functionality they lack and I need. Learning by doing I guess. I currently use the NEX-7 as my primary camera, and I have encountered a problem. I do a lot of travel movies where I talk to the camera while holding it out in one arm. That means I cannot see the screen. When I come home and see the...
