  1. Hi guys, recently, I am looking to buy a new full frame camera on budget. my budget is under $800(best if come with lens). I am looking at A7 and A7 II, since those are the affordable ones. A7II is definitly better compare to A7, but A7 is more cheaper(ebay and FB market place people selling it for 5 or 600 dollars). so, I tend toward A7 now. but should I buy A7? also want ask few other questions,what should I pay attention to when I buy such camera?
  2. Hey! I just recently bought the Fotodiox mount adapter from Nikkor F-Mount to E- mount, so I can use my two Rokinon lenses on my a7 camera. I have the Rokinon 16mm t2.2 full frame and Rokinon 85mm t1.5 full frame. I tried the adapter with my 16mm and it worked just fine both APS-C OFF and ON. But the 85mm doesn't work when I switch between APS-C OFF and ON and it stays in ON , so I can't use the whole full frame and it sticks with the crop APS-C. I've just tried these settings in the a7 Menu since I can't find anywhere else an option to work this out. Any ideas? Thank you !

    From a shoot with Iza. One of the first shoots with the A7, 55 1.8. I was happy with the results. One of the sharpest combinations, I've ever use.

    A7 1/60 f8 iso: 2500 + Cokin P linear polarizer This was shot with a late Konica Hexanon AR 28mm f3.5 lens. It was quite dark out at 6AM. I was looking for a nice and compact 28mm with sharp corners. The Konica AR has a very short focal flange distance for an SLR. The lens is a bit slow for some applications, but it is great for landscape; where I usually shoot at f8.

  10. Hi All! My name is Josh and I'm a previous Canon owner. I used Canon cameras quite a bit (Canon T2i, 5D Mark II, 6D, 80D, 6D II, 5D Mark IV, and EOS R). I'm a hybrid shooter and I thought the camera to rule them all would have been the EOS R5, so I preordered. I read reviews, I watched test videos, I even watched Peter McKinnon to convince myself that this was it. This was the answer to all of my camerawomen woes (mainly 4:2:2 10 Bit and 4K 120p). Then I thought about it, and thought about it, watched some more Peter McKinnon and thought about it. I came to the conclusion that overheating, recording limits, and overall Canon's response to what people were asking was enough for me to leave. I decided to switch to Sony. But not just any Sony, I decided to preorder THE A7s III. I sold old, outdated, new but never used gear on Craigslist. Not to mention all of my beautiful glass. Now I'm here... Waiting... By the door. Is it September 24th yet?
  11. Hey everyone! Just wondering if anyone can give me some recommendations for settings on the sony A7 mk1?. Going to shoot mostly stills in raw so not too worried about picture profiles just more setup info or any other pro tips. Also I've heard some bad things about bricking when doing firmware updates, is the newest firmware update any better and worth doing if it's out of date, I think 2016, 4.2 or 4.3 (something like that) is the newest version, also heard you get a better video codec with the update??... Thanks ?
  12. Hello, I'm curious to know if these two lenses can be effectively used in FF bodies without invoking crop mode. For instance, in my Pentax APS-C setup, I can use my 35mm and 50mm lenses in compatible FF bodies (film and DSLR). There is very slight vignetting, but I can get a full frame view out of them. Has anyone else tried these two lenses in FF mode?
  13. Greetings, I am in need of professional instructional lessons/tutorials. I have an A7 purchased 5 years ago for concert photography. I did not have time to learn to use it properly. I am reading "From Snapshots to Great Shots" by Brian Smith. However, Video learning is preferred. As of 2017 I am doing more drummer shoots where I would like to utilize the A7. I have worked for the Chicago Drum and Pasic. I am also a house photographer for Venue Works in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Thank you Drummer Photographer Instagram: @drummer_photograher
  14. Hey everyone. I'm new to the world of legacy lenses. Modern lenses are a bit out of my price range at the moment, so I'm looking into the legacy lens market for some nice lenses. I currently own a Sony A7 III with a Sony Sonnar Zeiss 55 1.8. The lens is great, but the focusing distance isn't that great. I shoot a lot of action figures, and like a macro lens for still photography. Any recommendations as to what I should be looking for?
  15. How would it be possible to connect the transmitter to the camera without using the pc sync chord connection? Does it work directly on the hot shoe? I have the old transmitter/receivers. https://www.keh.com/shop/stl-studio-lighting-elinchrom-el-skyport-univ-radio-slave-set-19360-with-transmitter-universal-receiver-1.html Thanks
  16. Hi! I just want to see if anyone used sony a7 first gen with Sigma Mc-11 and Sigma Art 24-70mm. I'm just wondering if the eye AF is working and how's the autofocus speed? Thank you so much!
  17. Help! I have an A7 and an A6000. I cleaned the sensor on both today using the VSGO kit. When I was finished I tried to turn them on. The A7 was completely dead. Changed battery, Dead. Same again with the third battery. I would expect these would all be 70 to 90% at this point. I tried the A6000 with a fourth battery (already in the A6000) and it worked. I moved that battery to the A7, dead. Put it back in the A6000, dead. Removed the last strands of hair from my head. I put the battery that had worked, back in the A6000. Dead. I swapped lenses on the A6000 and turned it back on. Worked. Put that battery in the A7, dead. It appears the A7 is fooling the battery into not working. Any ideas would be very gratefully received :)
  18. Hi All, I just bought an A7 MK1, and I'm pretty upset that I didn't know about the S-Log thing until it was too late. -- That said, do you have any suggestions for achieving film-style color from my shoots? And if the only thing I can do is go 'neutral' with profile, then what should I do in post, exactly (FYI: I use Sony Vegas)? Sorry for sounding noob. I bought the A7 because of its lens interchangeability and portability. I hadn't realized it was lacking something most other modern cameras seem to have by default. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! -JC
  19. After having my camera for a while, it has started to make a louder, almost grinding noise when I take photos. Has anyone else had this issue? Any ideas on wheat it might be? (Dirt, dying, etc)
  20. I have an a7 with Sony VG-C1EM battery grip which worked great for about 6 months but now loses power angling the camera down or just bumping it when turned to portrait. I put tape on the back of the batteries to make them more snug but that made the cam not power up at all. Im not sure which of the 4 contacts are shifting during movement. When I return to using a single battery in the camera without the grip it has no issues whatsoever. I purchased the grip from Bestbuy about a year ago for $248 so I would like to get at least a few years out of it if not much longer. Any experience with this issue and any solutions that have been discovered? Greatly appreciate any help in advance
  21. 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
  22. Hi, I am having a little problem with my Sony A7 camera. When set to 3:2, i try and choose my largest Megapixel setting and i should be able to select 24. However the largest available is 10. Im not sure if there is something i am missing? I have updated the firmware and still the largest Megapixel setting is 10. Can anyone help/ have any ideas that might help me out. Thank you

  24. Hi there! I have a question about using an external mic when recording video on the A7: I've plugged a wireless Sony URX-P03 receiver, which is connected to a UTX-B03 receiver with a clip-on mic to record an interview. It sounds to me like the A7 is automatically mixing the audio from the clip-on Mic together with the internal mic from the camera itself, as you hear a lot of background noise in the interview I'm shooting (see and hear here). However, I can't find any setting on the A7 to choose which audio sources to record and/or to turn off the internal mic. Any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance! Tim Metz
  25. Hi, I'm Paul and I'm new to the forum. I've been a gradual Sony convert since buying the amazing RX100 a few years ago. Since then I have swopped my Canon travel kit for a Sony Nex-6 and then added the amazing a6000 about 18 months ago. In the last few months all the Canon gear has gone and I moved to an a7 butI still have the a6000. I really enjoy the creative boost I get from the mirrorless system and the reduced weight when I'm travelling is pure bliss.
