  1. I don't use it. Where this fails is if someone is in a spotlight, it will often overexpose them attempting to bring the background up. Also shooting against a white backdrop when you are trying to knockout the background. JCC
  2. Slog will help, but it isn't like raw. Remember that even in 4k your frames are only about 8 megapixel each. I have gotten some good frame caps from video, but only in really good light where I was able to go to 1/250 or faster. JCC
  3. Nothing for nothing, so by going 2x magnification you go to F/5.6 The teleconverter combo would be more versatile because it would allow you to go to the faster 70-200 2.8 when needed. JCC

    Godox TT685s & AD200

    Maybe you are too close? The trigger will not fire reliably too close unless put into short distance mode. To do this hold down the flash button on the remote while powering up. LED will flash, release button. JCC
  5. Try a faster shutter speed if there is enough light. When I've shot runway, and other walking subjects I'm at 1/500 or faster if I have good light or strobe. JCC

    Street Lens for a7R II

    On your camera the 55 is very interesting in another way. With your eye to the viewfinder, and both eyes open, the images are in near perfect size sync allowing you to shoot both eyes open easily. JCC

    Street Lens for a7R II

    Your camera produces images roughly 8,000 pixels wide by 5300 tall, 42.5 mp. Instagram is roughly 1080 by 1080 pixels, 1/36th the original resolution, so you can crop a photo down quite a bit depending on where it will be used. JCC

    Street Lens for a7R II

    55/1.8 is very non threatening, and on an Rii even extreme crops are still good enough for social media resolution. 85mm prime might let you compose from a little further away, but its size prevents any stealth. JCC
  9. Craigslist is more likely since its less traceable. Unfortunately the serial number is just a sticker on many Sony lenses, and has fallen off by itself on some of mine. JCC

    WiFi downloads

    You can download by cable, but I'm worried about wearing out the micro usb socket. I've ruined them on phones over time. Really though, you should pull the card out and read it, because Playmemories doesn't transfer at the highest quality, and doesn't transfer raws. If you aren't shooting in raw you're losing out on most of your image processing capabilities. JCC

    A7S expected better

    Shooting in raw will help quite a bit. Get your shutter speed as low as you can without getting blur. If you can go to 1/80 you can drop your ISO at least 3 stops. You can kill some of the grain in post easily. JCC

    A7S expected better

    I shoot in dark clubs with an A7s, and A7Rii. Usually with an 85GM, or the 35mm Zeiss. 99% of the shots in my gallery are with this combo. Can you post an example of what you're getting? JCC
  13. You can do a radial filter in Capture One...Sort of. Make the brush really big, and expand its edge. Now make a new layer and just click one spot where you want the center to be. JCC
