    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.

  5. 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
  6. 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 experie

  8. 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)
  9. 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 th
  10. 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 y
  11. 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
  12. 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!

  15. From the album: A7 + Legacy Lenses

    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.
  16. 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 unders
  17. 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
  18. Hello Forum, I love reading the Sonyalpharumors and I love my Sony A7. Enclosed you will find some shots with the Loxia 2.8/21mm.

  19. Hi SAR forum readers, I was recently hiking in Nepal, slipped and fell and my camera fell out of my bag and tumbled down the side of the cliff. I went to look for it and then myself tumbled ~200ft. down the side of the cliff and almost died. My Sony NEX 6 survived the fall! But got beat up pretty bad, so i'm going to keep it as a back up and purchase a new camera. I was looking at the A6300 and it looks great, plus I already have a nice 50mm E mount lens, so I quite like that camera. However, i'd really like a full frame camera, so I'm curious what your suggestions would be for a com
  20. "Front-End Filter Solution" to get corner-to-corner sharpness A welcome topic launched to solve the problems with legacy lenses without changing the the thick filter in front of the sensor. Correct the problem by putting a front-end filter. See topic started here. Would like to share this because the more people become aware of this the better the solutions will be. see here: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1453834/0

  22. 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.
  23. Hi All, First time poster, long time lurker. I have a technical question about camera mounts. When Nikon and Canon introduce their own full frame mirrorless cameras (to compete with the A7) how likely is it that they will have to use a different mount system (in the same way Sony had to switch from the old A mount system for the A7)? Put another way, will Nikon and Canon users face the same problems we face with Minolta/A mount lenses? Will they have to buy adapters, etc. or is it technically possible to make a new mount that would accommodate old, DSLR-style lenses on a mirrorless body? I
  24. I have my A7R2 in air plane mode to save on battery power but what else is sucking the battery down when not in use and switched off? does any one know how long memory, copyright info etc is stored if the battery is out? is it stored on a eprom or is there a backup battery inside ?
  25. Hi, User LCT mentioned a few time the Kolari thin filter conversion on his a7s. I am considering it for my a7m2 and I was wondering if anyone else had experience with this conversion? Are there any potential down sides in doing this conversion? any caveat I should be aware of before considering the conversion? How was the conversion process/interaction with Kolari? Roger Cicala @ lensrentals wrote a review of a kolari modified a7r - seems pretty positive. Colin
