    • Also consider the new A7iv. It has a lot of the A9ii except the 20 fps silent shutter. If you really value that, get the A9ii. Otherwise the A7iv may be just as nice for half the price.
    • Hi everyone, I’ve been using my A7iii for about 3 years now and overall I’m pretty happy with it. I find myself wanting to upgrade to a newer model namely for: a better menu, EVF, ergonomics and better auto focusing. I don’t have a set budget, I want to buy the right camera for my needs. The type of photography I primarily do is travel/documentary. Video is nice to have but not that important to me. I shoot some landscapes but this isn’t my primary focus. Occasionally I will crop but that isn’t very often. A fast shutter speed is nice to have in some of the environments I shot in. Low light performance is very important to me along with eye auto focus. Obviously everyone is lusting after the A1 right now and I have to admit, I’m tempted. For my uses I think 50 megapixels is too much. I however I’m not entirely sure as I’ve never used a high megapixel camera. The camera that seems to check all of the boxes is the A9ii.    I may have answered my own question but I’m interested to hear everyone’s opinion.    Thanks
    • I paired a JJC BTR-S1 remote with my Sony A1. I want to unpair it but can't figure can't how to do that. Can someone help me? TIA.
    • One reason I have several lenses of the same focal length is SPEED.  For example, I have a great Rokkor-X 28mm f2.0 -- which is large and heavy, but FAST for low-light situations, and a Rokkor-X 28mm f2.8 which is half the size and weight for normal situations -- and considering it only cost me $20, it was an offer I couldn't refuse. Maybe you should check out a camera Swap Meet some day.
    • Yes, there is exact option for the focusing to the detail not being in the center, not being closest to the camera, not being "contrasty" enough as well, Focus Area -> Flexible spot; it's ("spot's") dimension can be chosen, and, most important, it can be positioned anywhere at the visible area. Requires some time to be managed, but it works. Learned this many years ago using the Fujifilm S2950, which has no manual focus, and this option is just exactly what I did need many times. BTW, still have that old camera, it can act as a great telephoto 18X zoom (28 – 504 mm); and (super)macro one as well (less than an inch distance). Sensor based stabilization!  Anyway, most of cameras have similar or same processes to achieve solutions, sometimes, or many times the biggest difference is the name of the task, words in manual.
