  1. The adapter is fine - its just designed that way with a raised contact. Other adapters do not have this, and I have ordered several to compare and contrast.
  2. Last week I purchased the Zeiss Flektogon 35mm 2.4. for my Sony A7riiI also purchased the K&F M42 NEX adapterThe lens attaches ok, and I can take photographs.However there is a gap between the lens and the adapter. This cant be right!Has anyone seen this? This is the right adapter isnt it?Please help!
  3. So I have found the Godox TT360S ...looks good and size is right. Does anyone know how i can rig a pair of these together? THANKS.
  4. Hi I have the A7rii and I use a Godox V860II for this, both off and on camera and it works fine. But I wanted to use flash on my camera as I wander the street and snap people. The Godox is rather on the large side, and I was hoping to find two guns, and place them either side of the lens (or one above and one below). Or should I just stay with the Godox? Its just a little too big to hold in the hand... Does anyone know which flash guns I might use for this? Thank you.
  5. Hi Gurus! I am trying to take some photographs with my Sony A7rii and the Play Memories app I am able to make a connection, both the phone and camera pair up ok. I can see the camera's view through the telephone. I can zoom in and out using the phone as well. When I attempt to take an actual photograph however, the error "Could not shoot" is presented. Is anyone able to assist? It was working, with a previous phone. The phone is a Huawei Honor 10. I have reinstalled the app to no avail. This also fails with the same message when using my trusty RX100III.

  7. So, I settled on the Manfrotto Advanced Medium Top Opening Camera Holster Bag for DSLR
  8. Hello Everyone. I have had my gorgeous A7Rii now for nearly a year and I am on my second camera case. My current one is a Manfrotto, which is fine but its more like a small rucksack. It's also awkward to unzip. I am one of those who likes to wander around and take pictures on the street, and I need a case that lets me access my camera very quickly. The Manfrotto has a zip - zips are no good to me, they take too long to, erm, unzip. I have missed some chances recently, fumbling around with the zip. I need a case (it must be small) that I can hang around my shoulder (it must have a decent padded strap to protect my neck) and will be a snug fit for the camera (with Tamron 24-70mm). Something like the Lowepro Adventura might work - but again, it needs to be a clickable, easily released flap so I can get to the camera quickly. I could just walk around with it around my neck, but i dont like showing off to everyone, especially around the places I like to roam in London. If anyone can recommend, I would really appreciate it. Thank you DJ
  9. Hello Gurus I am considering photographing weddings and I am looking at which flash is best to buy for my Sony A7rii. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am on a budget - less than £100. Thanks, DJ
  10. Hello Gurus. So I have my new A7Rii and I have a session booked soon with a model - I have not done this kind of thing before so I'm nervous. One idea to save me time and make myself look slightly less amateurish is to prepare my settings in advance, and save it all on M1 AF-C (was thinking of AF-S, but then Eye -AF wont work) Eye-AF Face recognition Focus area - i was going to use wide and hope that Eye-AF and Face recognition would take care of the rest. The alternative would be to use flexible spot but I am worried that this takes (me) too long to get right. Another idea would be lock-on AF (Center)... this is a real doubt for me. After a week or so with this beautiful machine I cant decide which focus area to elect. I dont think that the model will be running around or moving too much so there wont be too much movement. But then when he does move I dont want to end up with the focus on his beard. I would keep in Aperture Priority mode and keep it wide open at 2.8 (I am using Tamron 28mm-70mm) AWB/Auto ISO If I have forgotten anything please let me know - and please, if you have a view on which focus area to use do share.
  11. I just received my Tamron 28-75. Its huge, and the lens hood make it even bigger. But they tell me its not that big compared to other lenses.
  12. Im sorry if this is a naive thing to say but has this anything to do with the lens? Are you able to take the camera and have a regular E mount lens attached to replicate the issue?
  13. This isnt going to resolve your issue but why not consider the A7Rii ?
  14. Ha ha good one thanks Chrissie! The definition doesn't extend to camera equipment so i will just try. What happened to retail therapy? But yes, it has taken me months to get this far (with the purchase) and yes i cant wait to get it. One huge change is going to be carrying such a large camera with me. I have had a Sony RX for the last few years and compared to that the AR is about as discreet as a cement mixer. Its going to be different now - no more hiding the device under my hand.
