So I'm looking for an all round lens to take travelling with me next you so I don't have to change my lens all the time. So far I've seen the Sigma 18-300mm, Tamron 16-300mm and the Sony 8-250mm. Does anyone know if there is much difference between these lens and which one would be best? Also I'm open to any other suggestions. Thank you, Jess.
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 have a money a55 and just bought the sony a6300. It is my understanding that the batteries are compatible. But I wanted to come here and ask you guys to confirm. (I have emailed sony too). They seem to be the same battery for all that I can see, but sometimes there are small nuances that I don't want to mess anything up.
Hello, I'm going to buy a Sony A6300 soon. Since this is a complex camera (much more complex than the A55 I'm currently using), I think it's worthwhile to invest a few dollars in an external guide book for the camera (unfortunately Thom Hogan only produces books for Nikon cameras.). Can anyone recommend such a book? Thanks! gallery at https://www.flickr.com/photos/7205719@N05
Hello, I currently use the A55 with the 18-250mm, 10-20mm and 30mm f/1.4 lenses. The A55 has served me well for five years, but it's starting to show its age (loses connectivity with lenses, occasionally produces wildly over- or under-exposed images, etc). In addition, the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 always back focused on it, so I've used manual focus (thank god for the EVF), and now the other two lenses also focus less reliably. The obvious solution would be to replace my system with the A6300,...
So here I go again.... I currently have an SLTA55 - with a Tamron 18 - 270 lens. Love it, but time for a new one as the SLTA55 has had some recent problems. I even sent it away to see if it could be fixed. Today spent some time at a camera store, just looking at different cameras. Looking at wanting to spend around $2500 max (but of course can be talked into more if needed). A little about me: - majority of time I am shooting landscape/vacation pictures - could be europe - could be...
so with the a6300 now having min shutter speed with auto iso as a feature I'm hoping this camera will have it too. I have a much older a55 and looking to swap out the body for this a68, although I'm tempted to altogether switch over to a6300 or if they release the a5xxx equivalent. One no website preorder says shipping mid-may so we could also just wait and see
