  4. Have you tried the exposure compensation dial?
  5. Hello, I have recently switched from Canon (1DX) to Sony and I am struggling in one area. Exposure compensation. As a sports photographer I am have been used to rapidly dailing in some compensation if the subject is back lit by the sun. With my A9ii when I do this in ISO Auto, all that happens is the ISO increases in value, so in some cases I just from 6400 to 25600 !! I just want to lift the shadows. I have tried DRO and get the same effect. As I am a sports action shooter I shoot in JPEG, with zero time to run post production. What have I set up wrong?
  6. There is no compromise for "normal" shutter speeds. If I remember rightly, Long-exposure NR takes a black frame, with the same shutter speed, and uses it to compute and reduce the noise in the image. Thus, it always takes at least twice the shutter-speed period. A shutter speed of 15 seconds will take at least 30 seconds to process. Working backwards, if your camera is taking 30 seconds between shots, the shutter speed must have been around 15 seconds. Thus your blur. There is a minimum shutter speed at which your camera will do this process. at higher (normal daylight) shutter speeds, the setting is not relevant. On my a6500 it is 1 second. Googling Long-exposure Noise Reduction and your camera model should take you straight to the manual entry

  9. Hi all, I was having the same issue. I discovered that by turning off 'long exposure NR' (noise reduction when shutter speed is long) I am not having anymore such long processing time. Not sure what kind of compromise I'm making here, but so far it works. Good luck!
  10. Received my a7R4 from repair today. They said they ordered a part to fix my Slot 1 issue. Also, cleaned the sensor reset to factory defaults & a general wipe down cleaning of the camera. Tried the camera & all seems fine. It was a warranty repair, n/c.
  11. Can any of the good people here help me with an issue. I have A7III and when I have any of the vintage/manual lenses mounted with Godox flash on top of the camera (or even OCF) the flash will not fire (flash set to manual power). I have enabled “release w/o lens “ . When I put the lens that has contacts in the back (e-mount or Canon mount with MC-11 adapter) and the body can detect the lens the flash works without any issue. Is there anything in the settings that needs to be changed that I’m missing?
  12. Hi everyone I am new to Sony having taken the plunge and sold all my Nikon gear. I have an A9 200 to 600 and a 1.4tc. As I found with Nikon there is a learning curve and I am still halfway up it. I have a question if someone can clarify things for me....... what lenses will the 1.4 tc work with ? I am trying to decide whether to get an A6500 and a 70 to 350 lens as a walkabout kit or whether there is a lens I can buy and use the 1.4tc on my A9. I don't really want to haul the 70 200 2.8 around towns. I am a wildlife/bird hobby photographer ! Any opinions welcome. stay safe all in these trying times. https://www.flickr.com/photos/143073568@N08/
  13. Glad that you are happy ! However, your link, does not work ! Fix that, and we will have a look ! Cheers
  14. Sony Cameras, work best, with Sony & Zeiss lenses. I would forget the Tamron ! I had the Sony G master 24 -70 f2.8 , and as soon as the non master 24 - 105 came out, I swapped, due to sharpness & versatility of the 24 - 105. The Sony 85 mm, is a cracking good lens, but , with limitations. Do not rush out, to buy the 85mm, until, you have got used to the 55 mm ! Use it for at least a month, then ask, is this me ? Or do I need something else ? Lets say.. You buy 3 different lenses..... then go taking pictures...... inevitably, you will run into a situation, where you suddenly want a different lens, on the camera ! However, while doing so... The Jackdaw jumps from between the antlers, onto the deers back, which makes for a much less interesting photo ! Good luck, with whatever you decide.
  15. How much better, is the A 7 4 going to be, over the A 7 3 ? I could understand the question more, if you were going to update to the A 7 S or A 7 R series. Presumably, you are talking about using a tripod ? Offhand I have no idea how much the 200 - 600 lens weighs, but I did rent the 70 - 200 f 2.8 for a couple of days. Yes, lovely lens, but so heavy, to lug around on a day to day basis, I would never considder buying one. Is there anywhere , locally you can rent, the 200 - 600 ? do some test shots ? Or mebbe your local shop, will let you try it out ? It would be a real waste of money, to pay for the 200 - 600, then find out, its not what you expected, especially as you are happy with your 400 mm. I, would wait, and see , what this : A 7 4, has to offer.....then decide, if its so different, that you want to update. Then, adress the lens issue, but as said, try renting the 200 - 600 for a couple of days, then see what you think of the results ! Good luck, whichever way, you go.
  16. Hi everyone. I'm pretty new here. I have a Sony A7III and shoot mostly outdoors photography. I'm considering buying a 200-600mm lens but have also heard rumors that Sony is going to be introducing the Sony A7IV soon. I have a 400mm lens that works for most purposes so the longer length isn't that critical and I'm wondering if I should save my money and wait till the A7IV comes out. Has anyone heard when Sony expects to release that camera. If it's going to be fairly soon, I will probably hold off buying the lens, if not, well... Any thoughts you folks might have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and it's nice to be here.
  17. Hi Guys, my first time posting here, I have been using Sony Cameras since the release of the Sony 6000, I now have the Sony 6400 and love it! Anyway I thought I would share my work with you and see if you guys like it. Would love to hear your thoughts on it. Thank you for check it out: https://youtu.be/nlO1p2y-UZo
  18. The 18-200 you have should have a zoom lock switch which locks it in the 18mm position, preventing any zoom creep. Can't be used at any other focal length afaik. Do you need a lens that goes up to 200 mm? The 18-105 f/4 is internal zooming so doesn't extend and for sure doesn't suffer from zoom creep. Then again, if you already have the 18-135 I guess you do... I have no experience with the 18-200 power zoom but Internet tells me that if you engage the servo zoom, it should keep the lens in place: https://www.sony-asia.com/electronics/support/articles/00008353
  19. Yep, same issue with me. Sony Imagine Edge very. 7.3.3 Android 10 OnePlus 6T A6400. I have the exact same issue. It sucks.
  20. Well, since you were asking how to reduce, and I didn't know where you had started out from, I could only give you this general hint. But your selection is in fact the lowest that's documented in the help guide. Good luck! Maybe you can let us know how it finally worked out.
  21. Awesome, so based on the document linked I could start streaming at: MP4 file format 30p/25p 6 Mbps for a 720/30p 6M output, correct? I'll give it a shot to make sure it's not to pixelated. Thanks!
  22. Any setting that gives you a smaller bitrate than what you've currently set. "Bitrate" are those funny Mbps values in the linked document. You will anyhow be limited by the smallest bandwidth of either WLAN, LAN, switches, routers and/or bandwidth as supplied by your internet connection, which may be part of the total transmission chain.
  23. Earlier
  24. Sorry if this isn't in the right forum, but I was hoping to ask for some group wisdom here. I use the a6500 for live streaming to Facebook through a platform called OBS. But I'm having some glitches because (I think) I'm pumping out too big of a signal. What settings would you suggest to reduce the workload?
