    Just some shots

    Hey guys I would like to share some of my latest shots.

  2. I used my new Sony 70-200/f4 on a weekend trip recently and took a lot of street photos using this lens. Looks OK on screen and also at home, until I zoom in. Then most pictures are a little bit un-sharp, like if it isn't really focused. I used f-values between 4-7.1 and shutter speed of at least 1/400, so I don't think movement is a problem. And the edges are not fuzzy, it is more like you can't see the smallest details, like pores in the skin etc. Is my lens in need of calibration of what can the problem be? I'm very new to this kind of tele-lenses, so I don't know. I use AF single with medium spot btw and aim for anywhere on the face.
  3. I've had my A7ii for about 6 months now and recently am having an issue with the camera auto switching between the eye viewfinder and back screen display. When set to automatically switch between the two the camera will sometimes only display in the eye view finder even when I hold the camera at arms length to look at the back screen. This is a pain because I need to look through the eye viewfinder to change my settings, which is more difficult. I have contacted Sony help through e-mail and they are worthless, I didn't realize that Sony's customer service was so poor. Anyway, any help with this issue would be much appreciated. Thanks, Frank
  4. Hi, I own an A6000 and an A7m2. I'm tired of opening beautiful shots only to find huge dirt marks on them! Yes, I can generally clean the images via software... However, I do a lot of event photography (celebrity red carpet, etc.) and it's time consuming and sometimes difficult (e.g., if the smudge is near an eye) and there's time pressure to upload images immediately after events. Is it possible for ILC cameras to have a user-selectable sensor dust cover? When in a hurry one could bypass the dust cover while changing lenses but when time permits one could use it! I'm so fed up with having to clean images and clean the cameras' sensors that I'm seriously considering an RX1R2 or RX10m2!
  5. When exporting a RAW image from a7ii to iPhone 7 via imaging edge mobile app my picture info shows jpeg and 1616 x 1080 size. Camera set to RAW compressed. App set to original for "copy info". Pictures imported the same way Feb 26, 19 (prior to app update) imported as RAW 6000 x 4000. The change came out of nowhere. Any input on what may have inadvertently changed? Driving me crazy
  6. Seeing that the Sony 70-200 2.8 is $2500...are there any recommendations on less-expensive alternatives for sports? Anyone have success with sports and adapters without losing the speedy AF? Please share. Currently using a6300 for outdoor (utilizing the crop factor) and a7ii indoors.

  9. Hi, I've just bought an A7ii and it doesn't seem to be able to charge the battery. When charging, the orange LED comes on after two or three seconds. It's then on for about nine to ten seconds before turning off. This happens with the supplied cables/pack and also others I have tried. It's a consistent nine to ten seconds it is on for, does this mean anything? Is this a camera or battery problem? Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks, Tim
  10. Lots of testing, but finally here is my full experience and rating for the Sigma MC11 Adapter :-) Get some chips and beer and take a look at my Video Review and blogpost where i have tested the Sigma 24mm 1.4, Canon 70-200 F4 L with 2x extender, Sigma 150-600 Sports, Tamron SP 90mm 2.8, Tamron SP 85mm 1.8! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=1769

  14. I'm quite happy with how these turned out so I felt like sharing them with you guys! Make me think of cinnamon buns or a crazy wizard waving his staff. A7ii + Laowa 15mm f2 @ f2.8 8s ISO800
  15. Hello, after a 3 month experience with the Voigtlander Nokton 35 1.4 Classic, where I disappointed from the curve focus plane (see this page), I decided to sell it and to find something else. I tried for fun a Samyang 35 F/1.2 lens (which is an APS-C lens) on the Sony A7II in Full Frame mode, and... wow! At the lowest distance of focus (around 38cm) the coverage of the sensor is almost complete, at 2.8 the vignetting is really small and the center sharpness is very good. At infinity, the vignetting is a little more pronounced, with dark corners. If you crop the image a little bit (I think less than 10%) and apply 60% of light fall correction in C1, the lens is really usable. Obviously the sharpness fall off on the borders (left and right, top and bottom are good enough). It's similar to the "vintage" effect on CV lenses. I just put here some examples (ARW and JPG), more will come next days and I'm uploading some photos on Flickr. For now I'm pretty happy, in my opinion wide open is better than the CV 35 1.4, wich is better closing the diaphram. Files on Dropbox Best regards, Marco.
  16. Hi, I've set up my A7II as follows: Back button focus using the AF/MF button - normal AF when lever is up, Eye-AF when lever is down. Now, I've read on this forum that the phase-detect sites only work on AF-C. As I never use AF-C, it was a revelation to me to see that AF-C is much faster then AF-S, using the FE 28/2 with back button focusing - I don't see the hunting and 'breathing' that I see when using shutter button AF. Now, my questions are, is there a reference anywhere with all the AF alternatives? And what does 'Center Lock AF' do, and how to use it? Also, what's the point of the monitor screen called 'For Viewfinder'? Just don't get it... Thanks for you help

  18. Hi there I would like to share a bunch of shots from my latest short trip to Venice, Italy. What a beautiful, photogenic city! The first photo shows the painted houses of Burano, a lovely, colorful small town on an island reachable only by boat. I highly recommend visiting it if you’re nearby. The complete album can be found here: https://www.behance.net/gallery/58422351/Venezia All shot on A7II & FE 55/1.8 Thanks for stopping by.

  19. Hi All, I'm curious about your opinion of the a6000. I currently have the basic a5000 and, honestly, have been impressed with its performance using a 55-210mm lens. I can get gorgeous images with terrific bokeh, I like the size, and I'm not bothered by some grain. I currently have the 16-50mm and 55-210mm lenses, which have served my photo avocation needs just fine, and would like to continue using them with a better camera. I've been looking at the A7, A7ii, a6500 and a6000. I'm not crazy about the idea of having to start buying full-frame lenses for the A7 and A7ii, although I understand both will accommodate my current e-mount lenses. So right now, interestingly, I am leaning toward the economical a6000, mainly because it has an optical viewfinder, fast 11 fps continuous shooting, hybrid AF, and the 24 MP sensor. I tend to shoot a lot of close-ups and portrait shots, not usually in low light. Do you think I need the full frame sensor to "take my images to the next level?" And do I need the internal 5-axis in-body image stabilization in the a6500? My impression is that the Optical Steady Shot stabilization in my lenses is good enough. Would they be notably better with in-camera stabilization too? Thank you!! Here's are a couple of pictures I shot yesterday: butterfly cemetery sunset
  20. Hey there everyone, I'm currently in the market looking for a great macro lens. The new FE 50mm F2,8 Macro looks promising but seems to be veeery slow in terms of af. And I unfortunately haven't seen any test images, yet. I'm curious if anyone out there is already shooting a great (lens(+adapter)+body) combo for macros with their A7II. Cheers, zʇɹɯ
  21. Finally got a chance to bring outside the Sony GM 85 1.4 for some portraits in natural light. Coupled it to Sony a7ii, Eye-AF works almost fine although only in AF-S mode, however can't wait for the Sony A7iii to be released and hop on a A7r2 Summer Wind Was Always Our Song by Stefano Dessi, su Flickr In the Shade by Stefano Dessi, su Flickr Tell Me by Stefano Dessi, su Flickr All photos processed on C1
  22. Inparticular, A7ii. Seeing if anyone has any recommendations on an external that works well with the A7
  23. I'm going on a safari to Kenya soon and I don't feel I know enough about taking pictures with my Sony 70-200/f4 (on a A7II). I know it would be better with a longer focal length, but this is what I've got. But to make sure I get as good pictures as possible with my setup, could you give me some hints on settings both for the lens and for the camera that could be useful? I'm guessing it is mostly day time photography from an open car. Planning on getting a bean bag for some support also. Greatful for all help I can get!
  24. Hey everyone, I recently switched from canon to sony and bought the a7ii, so I'm still new with all the camera functions. I changed all the settings to where I want them (RAW, uncompressed) but when I upload the images to photoshop, I noticed my images automatically come out size at 16.4X10. I find that weird because when I use my Canon 5Dii, my images in photoshop will come out to 21.6X14.4. Is there a function setting I'm missing on my a7? If so, what do I need to change? I've added 2 images to compare the image size on both cameras: Canon 5Dii A7ii Can anyone help?
  25. Here is my Hands on with the Canon 85mm 1.8, i have tested it with 3 affordable adapters. Have a look why this is a great affordable lens but has its problems with autofocus on my adapters http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=957
