    Best low light settings

    On my body I have various profiles set but the only two that use slog gamma is pp6/7 :- pp1-5 I use under expose -1 for pp6/7 I use 1 stop over.

    Best low light settings

    I have found with my A7r2 that the built in exposure metering consistently suggests settings that actually give a overexposed look despite showing as neutral exposure on the display EV scale. I got used to that when shooting raw and always exposed raw at that suggested level, which allowed head room for recovery while allowing the black to show detail with out grain at higher iso settings. However when shooting video that built in overexposure does cause a issue when using non log profiles, in that the over exposure does not take kindly to recovery. Using a log profile however does seem to like the overexposure suggested by the metering with the exposure being reasonably gradeable. Using a remote monitor with false colours and adjusting the exposure to obtain what the false colours show as a correct exposure results in the camera display showing one stop underexposed. So , for me , shooting video with non log profiles I use one stop under and , for log profiles and for raw stills , one stop over works for me regardless of the ambient lighting available.
  3. I have not bought yet but I was was thinking to get this http://www.exprodirect.com/ex-pro-sony-on-the-move-7600mah-rechargeable-battery-power-system-replacing-battery-grip-np-fw50-dr-fw50-battery-for-sony-dslr-cameras.html perhaps their battery specs might help you?
  4. Q1 yes Q2 no I think 🤔 🤔🤔🤔
  5. If you care to read the replies you got in response to your post you will see that I replied on the 17th of April 2017. If you do not give us the information with which we can attempt to help , or as in your case where you appeared to be wanting to warn other users about a product while withholding the brand name makes your post effectively useless or the purpose you intended. Do not bother to reply to me as I have unsubscribed from this thread
  6. I fail to understand why ,when this post was started at in April 2017, only now the brand gets named ?
  7. I think unfortunatly, if you have tried a full reset from the menu and still have the fault it needs to go to a repair centre. It looks like either a sensor or processor fault

    Capture One Pro 12 and Sony

    Also of course a large cost implication

    Capture One Pro 12 and Sony

    Either version performs that same on Sony raw, and there is on the C1 website a comparison chart, for the two versions. For me the tethering facility was what I wanted along with the IPad connectivity facility. , but while it’s a bit of learning curve if your used to LR , it is streets ahead of LR for options and editing options. i cannot praise their support enough, they respond normally with in the same day and alway have or find the solution to the problems. Compaired to some others it’s reason enough to use C1

    ISO 50 vs. 100 on A7R3

    Probably not but easy to test is it not?

    Need a power and data cable not nessary to have the original but it will be a cable problem
  13. Don’t forget there is exposure compensation setting in the menu that has nothing to do with the dial one. Make sure that did not get changed somehow, listed as exposure comp, next to setting for exposure steps

  15. Christie, is the network connection not meant ,as with some of the camcorders, to connect to a network for direct download , or live streaming? i don’t have one but it seems a logical reason for its inclusion in the body?
