Hello, Recently I was searching for a Sony a58 batterygrip, but couldnt find it. What I did find was a batterygrip for the Sony a580. This camera uses the same batteries as the sony a58, and the camera's body is roughly the same as the a58. Would it work if I put the a580 batterygrip on the a58? Did anybody try this? Regards, Joël van Daalen
Hello, Last summer I bought a Sony a58 camera. I think it is a really good camera for photography, but it is awful for video (at least in my case). The video is choppy (like it was shot at 4fps, camera was set to do 1/60), it is really noisy (like ISO was set to 3200, it's actually just at 400) and grainy. Resetting the camera to factory default doesn't work too. If somebody has any idea on improving the video-quality, that would be really great! Thanks in advance! Joël van Daalen
So as the title suggests I am having some problems with using the RODE VideoMic to record external audio on my Sony A-57 DSLR. When I think everything is set-up correctly the camera still records from its inbuilt mic. I've had the microphone sent off to HHB, who overlook RODE's repair and warranty but the product I received seems un-touched and still does not work. Does anybody have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
While reading through the available A68 manuals clears most of the things, one thing that's not mentioned anywhere is its buffer size. I hope its not a huge downsize from A77ii as except for A58(5 frames of JPEG+RAW); A77, A65 and A57 has decent sized buffers(13, 13, and 18 frames JPEG+RAW respectively). Anyone has any experience with it?
Hello, I have a Sony A58 and want to shoot a picture in raw but with black and white viewfinder. However, my A58 doesn't allow me to set black white mode if I choose the file type as the raw or the raw + jpeg. A65 seems to allow this. (http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/54189420) Is there any way I can do this with my A58? Thank you,Won
I started with photography and videography with a simple Nikon D3300. It's nice, but I am producing more video. I have done a lot of research on mirroless, (or translucent mirrors like in the Sony Alpha's) and also DSLR's. My budget allows for about a $600 camera. I am looking at either the Canon 700D or the Sony SLT - A58. Does anyone know of a better one, or would mind sharing with me what they thing about my selections or advice for another? Thanks,
I have 2 lens from my old A58 that I actually liked using before. However, they were both APS-C lens so they'd need to be cropped. Question: How is the quality effected when using a cropped lens on a full frame body (A7ii)? I understand that the image will need to be cropped to remove the vignetting but what else is effected aside from that? Thanks! --Robbie
