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...

Hi, I'm will be visiting Alaska next year and while I am more of a landscape person than a wildlife person it would seem like a wasted opportunity to not make the most of the abundance wildlife in Alaska. I have the 55-210 but that is really much too short for wildlife. So at the moment the two options I am considering are the 70-300mm which I know is still a little too short for wildlife ideally but along with crop zooming I think should be mostly ok? The other option I am thinking about is...

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...
