  1. Hi All I'm new to the Forum and a New Sony Shooter. I traded all my Canon Gear in just a little over two months ago and have been super impressed with the New Sony System. There have been a couple of teething issues that I've been able to sort out with a little trial and error. The G Mater Lenses (70-200mm and 16-35mm) are Nice and I also use some Canon TS Lenses with a MetaBones adapter. So Far so good, here's a Gallery with some a9 images from a recent Event I Photographer in Bogata Colombia, (All but the first image are with the a9) it would be nice to see your thoughts: htt

  5. I took this just South of Big Sur in Northern California just above the famous highway 1. I used a Sony A9, f14 and 2.5s
  6. Excited to be here, planning on sharing and asking lots of questions. Really love photography but sometimes need help navigating the settings on my Sony ;-) Always looking to learn and grow as a Photographer! I live in San Diego Right now, and focus on landscapes, but always willing to branch out and try something new!
  7. I have a Sony A9 (Still trying to learn all the settings) and I recently lost some pictures because a card got corrupted while shooting. I decided to now use the second card reader slot and set the camera to simult for recording mode. Assuming this records pictures to both slots? Also Assuming since my camera is set to shoot raw that it will record in raw on both? My last question is, how do I accesses the second card when I plug it into my computer so I can clear both cards to delete images after importing? And assuming lightroom will only import from the slot one card?
  8. Hi I have just placed an order for an a9 today having been a Nikon users for 4 decades. A friend let me borrow his a9 a few weeks ago to take photos for my sons American football team (based in the UK) and I was blown away it’s so fast Went in to local shop in Glasgow to try it and have ordered that and a lens arriving next week and traded in all my Nikon gear. I look forward to learning a new system and updating you with my experience and in all likelihood asking questions
  9. I can't seem to get the new Sony RMT-P1BT to connect with the A9 (under Software Ver 5.0). No problem with my A7R3 (under Software version 3.0) but no way to do this with the A9. When trying to pair the menu always offers "Make Bluetooth connection via Imaging Edge Mobile on Smartphone" whereas on the A7R3 it says. "Perform pairing on the connected device" and it then offers the painting with the remote. Any tips available?
  10. Hi, has anyone has any slowing down issues with their a9? When I use the aperture and time dial the responses are so bad that it nearly takes up to 2/3 seconds to change. Sometimes lags terribly as well. If I switch off, the camera actually takes up to 5 seconds to go off. The AF is slow as well. Tried multiple, lenses, cards, batteries and still have the same issue. Apparently once it's been on for a while, like 5 or 10 minutes, hanging down on my shoulder it gets worse. As soon as I switch it off and back on again, the issue is gone for a few minutes then gets b
  11. I started with a Minolta and then switched to Canon. I have a nice line of Canon lenses, to include a Canon 400 f2.8 and a 600 f4, which are fantastic. I am considering switching from a 5D3 to an A9, but I am reading that the A9 will not shoot at 20fps when using a non-native lens. Can someone explain why this is the case seeing that a lens is just something that the camera sees through? Unless this is just a tactic that Sony is using to force sports photogs to use their lenses, instead of the ones they have already spent 10's of thousands on?
  12. Hi all, im new to the forum and have a question for anyone out there that may be able to help. I have been shooting a lot recently with a A9 and 24-70 2.8G in reasonably low light. When I import the raw images (shooting raw compressed) into lightroom there seems to be a large amount of noise. Even after reduction its noticeable at 100%. I have been shooting at different variations but its around the ISO 1000 mark. I have tried changing a few in camera settings with no joy. Anyone able to shed some light?? Thank you
  13. Last week I purchased a full Sony a9 setup including the Sony FE2470GM lens, and am heavily disappointed with the lens concerning face focusing. The lens is capable of focusing with good, but not great, detail when using magnification zoom (C4 button) with center focus in P A S or M, but in Auto mode it will place a green frame around the person's face and lock on, yet deliver a slightly out of focus result on the eyes, whether using Eye AF with the center button or not. However, the focus always seems to be accurate with high detail either above or below the green frame around the face, givin
  14. So - recently jumped over to Sony with the A9, and so far the camera is making a huge impact to my workflow. Admittedly I've only worked with it for a week, but so far so good. Easy to adapt to and figure out, great IQ, and surprisingly easy to handle. My one nagging question for sony users is this, however. With my Canon system I've grown used to flagging/starring/rating/ranking images in camera - made for quicker editing back home, and easier for me to ensure my assistant uploaded the right files when I used a card runner. To be clearer, I'd be shooting in the field, and use the "Rate" b
  15. Hi. I rented the A9 over the weekend to shoot some sports and use both the Canon 300mm f/2.8ii and Nikon 300mm f/4 PF, with some interesting results. Both lenses worked very well with the A9 - although, surprisingly, the Metabones adaptor (for Canon) kept freezing whereas the Vello/Commlight (for Nikon) worked almost flawlessly - in contrast to that adaptor's spotty performance on my A7rii. Here's the blog https://blog.qamera.com/blog/2017/5/28/a9-and-action I'm really looking forward to getting some Sony prime tele glass and would strongly suggest they take a look at what Nikon
  16. I want to power my Sony A9 with a power bank via the (only) usb micro plug of the camera. Then how can I plug CamRanger2 or other devices with usb micro plugs to the camera? Is there any split cable available? Hubert
  17. 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?
  18. Hi, A fellow Sony user is having an issue with his 100-400 on his A9. In 45 minutes of use this happens four or five times. The AF display is there are black. He attempts to focus on anything, infinity or close to force the lens to focus and nothing happens. A restart of the camera gets it going each time. Things improved at bit after updating to V6 firmware. It stays operational longer and a restart seems to always fix it. With V5 that wasn’t always the case. He called Sony and they had him send it in. They said they fixed it but when he got the lens back it behaved the same way.
  19. I managed to get rather close to this nesting bird, Animal Eye AF was on. Zooming in on the eye, that reflection (arrowed) is me,
  20. It takes about 60 seconds for my a9 buffer to clear with a Sony G Tough card in Slot 1 and compressed Raw file format. This seems almost twice as long as some claims. The test is to shoot till the buffer is full, about 240 files, then time how long it takes until the buffer is clear, that is the led goes off and the files are done transferring. Is there an expected variance in the camera or SD card write speed that would explain this? or do I have a buggy camera or card.
