  1. Thanks Zé De Boni. I had that feature on nikon and was hoping that Sony would have it too...
  2. I have the same problem with the Sony OEM grip and a non-OEM battery. That battery works in the camera but not in the grip.
  3. Is it possible to see the focus point that was used to take a picture when playing back picture on the camera? (like in the picture below) For example, if you are taking a picture of yourself with a tripod and want to check where focus was made to be able to adjust. Or if you only want to understand why focus was not as expected let's say.
  4. You can lock the wheels but not lock only one...
  5. If I understand the article referenced below, the A7R2 is not very fast and it serves no purpose to buy more than a UHS-1 card. http://www.cameramemoryspeed.com/sony-a7r-ii/sd-card-comparison/ Seems like we are stuck with the zooming delay. Coming from Nikon, I was not used to such a delay...
  6. I know that I can lock the dials/wheels but how about locking one of the wheels? (Not both) Is that possible? I use this on my Nikon while in the studio for example to make sure I don't mess up my flash sync speed without noticing.
  7. The latest adapters on the market apparently allow full control of the attached lens (focus and aperture I guess) and the transmission of the necessary data to the camera. I have read that Canon to Sony works OK but that Nikon to Sony is not all that good. Given that I am both a Nikon and Sony shooter, I am obviously interested in the Nikon lens to Sony body connection (A7R2 in my case). Is there anyone to confirm Nikon to Sony body performance, one way or the other?
  8. Yes, you are right. That's the only way that EyeFocus works actually regardless of any other settings. I can't tolerate any function requiring hanging onto a half-press of the shutter. So, holding onto TWO buttons would just drive me up the wall. OTOH, MF makes you uncomfortable. Each to their own. Hope it works out comfortably for you ! Well, I can't say that I love the way it works but this is not totally different from using an AF-On button.
  9. Carrying two cameras, yikes! I am currently experimenting with "normal focus" on the shutter half-press and EyeFocus on the AEL button. We'll see how that works!
  10. Yes, of course. I guess I did not finish my line of thinking; I am not keen on using manual focus in most circumstances, especially when I am in a hurry (such as moving around from a model to something else for example).
  11. Thanks for the advice Username. I have to say that I am not too keen on manual focus. I'd rather concentrate on my model and let the camera focus automatically on the eye of the model (that's partly why I bought a Sony camera BTW).
  12. I have not had my 7RII for very long but I am not new to digital photography (I probably qualify as an "old fart"). I do mostly portrait photography, in studio and outside. I use AF-C with EyeFocus on the AEL button and that works well. Now, if I am working outside, I may be further away from the model or I may want to take a quick photo of a car passing by (or whatever). In that situation, EyeFocus will not work and that's very annoying because the camera is not focussing properly when hitting the EyeFocus button since there is no eye to focus on. What would be a good setup/setting to be able to focus in both types of situations? EyeFocus on AEL (as it is) and use another button for another type of focus? Or can I leave the shutter half-press to normal focus (it is currently off) and use the AEL button only when I want EyeFocus? Any insightful advice will be appreciated.
  13. Would you have an opinion about the f4 "limitation" as mentioned here: http://www.sonyalphaforum.com/topic/6257-advice-for-shooting-portraits-with-a7rii/?p=28896
  14. OK. Thanks. If I set Eye Focus on AEL, will the camera only focus when I hit the AEL button (much like an AF On button)?
