  3. Perfect, thank you 👍 Live view is pretty sluggish in film mode, is that usual?
  4. HI, I have bought the A7 III and i just don't get how to use it in film mode? I've been shooting filming with the 24mm f1,4 all night and i had no idea if people were in focus or not. My problem is i don't understand how to use it to get auto focus in film mode. I try all settings but i still seem to be stuck in some semi-manual mode. It's ok for stills, aim with back focus and shoot. But when i switch to film i can't seem to be able to set focus on persons or things. What would be the best basic steps to set up my camera and best practice to use it for focus. How should i think, set up the camera and use it? Worst part is that the focus assist is grey when not pushing back focus (green) and it's very hard to see where focus is set. Please give me your best newbie tips 😃 Thanks / Johny

  6. Thank you for the responses. I was also wondering about Canon lenses with the adapter or off-brand Sigma, Tamron, etc, lenses. I have an number of Canon lenses and some Sigma and a Tamron.
  7. Thing is DXO's testing method by definition can't measure a higher perceptual megapixel count than the sensor used in the measurement. If a higher megapixel sensor was used to test those lenses you refer to, a higher number would have been obtained. Rest assured those lenses with 40-ish perceptual megapixels on an A7RII in fact outresolve the sensor.
  8. There are basically two cases to consider: the resulting resolution may either be limited by the available pixel count of the sensor (lens could deliver more, but sensor does not have enough pixels to take advantage of the lens's capabilities - or: the resulting resolution may be limited by the focussing capabilities of the lens. (The image of a "point size" object on the sensor is larger than one sensor pixel.) If you want to exhaust the pixel count of your sensor as far as possible, you should pick any lens that has a higher "perceptual pixel count" (to use dxo's terminology) value than the sensor. In their lens database there are only five lenses that come close, if you include 40 pMP as being close enough to the 42 actual MP od the 7Rii.
  9. Oh! Don't know how I picked up that misconception (I guess it's easy to inhale misconceptions on the internet!). Thanks for correcting it.
  10. Image sharpness always benefits from having a higher MP count. Check e.g. DXOmark with some of the lenses with minimal sharpness like the 24-240: On the A7R (36 MP) it has 9 perceptual megapixels while on the A7RII (42 MP) it has 15 perceptual megapixels. I'm quite sure the sharpness of the old A7R suffers from it's notorious shuttershock in this test but the difference is evident. Unfortunately DXO didn't test any lenses on the 24 MP A7x but there's plenty to be found on this subject on the web.
  11. Canon APS-C is 1.6 (1.59). All other brands are 1.5 (1.52).

  13. If you have a fixed idea, based on age and experience, maybe going back to SLR film days, of what a 16mm lens will be like, and what a 24 mm lens will be like, then: Yes. 16mm lens will look like a 24mm lens on the a6300. Isn't the crop factor actually 1.6? Anyway, being bad at numbers, 1.5 is close enough for me.
  14. Normally I shoot video in manual mode with ISO set to Auto. So, while recording, the ISO continually adjusts depending on lighting. Is there a setting somewhere that prevents ISO from changing while actively recording something - and only adjusting again in-between shots? My use case is such that I want the camera to adjust ISO for exposure, but then lock that in throughout the shot and then re-adjust for the next one. That way, I don't have to manually select my ISO for each shot, but also have locked in settings throughout the shot that are easier to work with in post. Apologies if this is an obvious "feature" which I'm unfamiliar with. I haven't had much luck searching around for similar questions or a feature to fix it. Thanks!
  15. With 90mm f2.8 being a top heavy lens on a6300 can we shoot it handheld? How are the images? Would there be a lot of difference in image quality from this lens between apsc and full frame?
  16. Again: the focal length is a fixed property of the lens so 16mm will always be 16mm. On an APS-C body like your a6300 however it will produce a similar field of view as a 24mm lens on a fullframe camera. But this has to do with the camera sensor size, not with the lens. Eg. the (crop) 16-50 lens will produce exactly the same field of view as the (fullframe) 12-24 lens when both are set to 16mm and both mounted on your a6300. I'm sure you can distill whatever answer you were looking for from my comment.
  17. Will this 16mm lens be 16mm on the 6300 (crop), or will it be 24mm? Thanks
  18. Not sure if I understand your question correctly... It will behave like any other 16-50 lens on an APS-C body. The fact that the lens is designated as 'crop' has nothing to do with the focal length, it just means that the lens' projection is not big enough to cover a fullframe sensor. It's your sensor size that does the cropping, not the lens.
  19. I recently bought a used Sony A7R ii. If I use everyday lenses, I wonder if their relatively poor resolutions will make it so there is no advantage of having the 42MP verion (A7R ii or iii) vs the 24MP (A7R ii or iii). What I don't want is to waste 42MP if the images turn out no different than the 24MP. What lenses should I avoid and/or what lenses should I look for that would accentuate the difference rather than suppress it. And, since I have a lot of Canon lenses, will any of those take advantage of the 42MP? Does anyone have both? Can you see a difference? If so, what lenses do you use? Up till now, I have used a Canon 80D, and I know it is an APS-C camera, but I really wanted an upgrade in sharpness or I would have gotten an A7 ii or A7 iii.
  20. Hello I bought a sony a6400 and I started to do test for video and I noticed that both the viewfinder and the lcd appears very MOIRE and alaising an absurd thing on roofs in fences walls with bricks of various shapes shirts with stripes hairs etc, etc. test another Sony a6400 and I was amazed at the amount of MOIRE alaising just to give an example was to shoot some buildings and the image was full of MOIRE and gets recorded .... !!!! is already the second camera that testo of different dates of manufacture. I come from Canon and I already had several cameras and I never found this problem ... sony says that a feature of the machine and not defect ... is there I'm confused if the video becomes unusable how can I make video ????? so being the character of the machine is worth not having video only photo !!!! ???? I ask you to help me with this problem is there any way in the settings to eliminate or minimize this problem?
  21. Will the SELP1650 crop lens shoot at 16-50 on a 6300? Or will it be cropped at 1.5?
  22. Passed the 10,000 mark with the 6400 at the Cup Final between Man City and Watford a few days ago. Used the 18-135 lens and many of the images were cropped . You can see all the images - here http://www.rtfract.com/citmay19a.html. I have also updated my 6400 page - http://www.rtfract.com/sonya6400.htm I did have a problem at half time when the battery refused to come out easily! After a struggle I managed to change it!

  24. Hi - not sure if this has been asked before but are there any alternatives to play memories home for getting 4K video off a Sony A7rIII. Google just returns rubbish for results as far as I can work out. I find play memories home plain offensive it is that clunky - I install it, get videos, then uninstall it. Thanks in advance.
  25. Hi! I'm about to go on a three week trip to Europe with my nephew and the 18-135 and sigma 16mm 1.4 are on my list. Since it sounds like you have traveled with this combo and also only shoot stills before is there any recommendation you would have for a second prime lens? I will mostly be doing tourist stuff and taking tourist photographs but I usually end up printing and framing I handful of photos from every trip. I'm not very good at photographing people but certainly wouldn't mind being able to get a good shot or 2 of my nephew.
