  1. This is a Sony A6300 with Sigma AF 24-105mm f/4 DG HSM Art Minolta A with Sony LA-EA3 A-Mount Adapter. As well as Blackmagic Production Camera 4K EF with Sigma AF 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Canon EF-S and Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM. The result is 10 minutes of peace and clouds. Except for the opening plan in the timelapse, everything else was in real time. After the post-production, it was accelerated.
  2. 38 minutes of stormy sunrise with nature sounds. Shot on Shot on Sony A6300 in Gamma Cine2 (ISO 400). Lens Sigma AF 24-105mm f/4 DG HSM Art Minolta A with Sony LA-EA3 A-Mount Adapter. Only part of longest shooting and A6300 no overheat!
  3. When I press or release the autofocus button on my Sony Alpha 7 III I notice a lag in the screen and in the viewfinder. And it is really annoying. Here you can see a video of the lag (at 1:23). The fix he says in the video doesn't solve the problem for me. I'm using the Sony Alpha 7 III (last firmware) with the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 Art. The lag is noticeable with both "Display Quality" set to "Standard" or "High", and regardless of the used "Focus Mode". Do you notice the same? Is it possible to fix it?
  4. so i want to upgrade my 70-200 zoom lens with these three options: tamron 70-200 f2.8 sony e mount sigma 70-200 f2.8 sony e mount sony 70-200 f4 (f2.8 is out due to price) would be using it primarily for surfing photography & video, secondarily for landscapes etc. what would you guys recommend at this point, native lens & smaller aperture or offbrand & 2.8?
  5. 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?
  6. 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!

  8. Hi, love the Alfa 6000 , my first proper camera again since the analogue era. BUT apart from the camera used as a shoot and play , i wanted to dive in playing with light and flashes again ....so i got myself a nice Sigma EF610 DG super (with Nikon shoe) obviously physical fit but no much flashing apart the test button , so i got a HC512 hotshoe adaptor made in ...well yaknow.... for Nikon to Sony...now the flash gets triggered BUT no TTL ....Hmmm ..... no "D" on the flash LCD (to indicate connection) ... now the Sony shoe has like a ton of tiny connections (probably to launch a small rocket by wire ???) and the adaptor uses obviously a few to translate to the flash through the 4 plus ground pins ......it all feels a little bit wobbly... anyone experiences here ?? tips tricks ?? thanks
  9. Long story short I only need 1 lens to work and function a certain way. I do NOT need autofocus. But it's the new Sigma 14-24mm for Nikon that just came out a little while ago, not many people have it on their radar. I just need it to work on aperture priority mode and be able to bracket photos as well. But i shoot on manual focus at infinite. I'm wondering if only the more expensive adapters like the commlite will work with this function or if the cheaper 99 dollar ones will let me control aperture as well. I care about image quality but if the more expensive adapters are only that pricey because of autofocus I could care less. Any info would be appreciated, thanks!
  10. Does anyone have experience with this lens on the sony a6000. I found a used one for sale for $75 (Canadian) and apparently is e mount. Thanks!!! JSS
  11. Hello everyone, in January I bought the sony a99II, shortly after I paired you with the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 IF EX DG, since it does not focus very well I brought to show it and they told me that it must be done calibration ... BUT, since the dealer (online, shop with headquarters roma) I sold it as a European guaranteed after this thing is It turns out it's actually import. so no guarantees. given the error you should compensate me, but now he just told me that this goal is perhaps not compatible with this machine ...... please someone help me, some have combined without any problems? I have the distinct feeling that is looking for a pretext for not shelling out money
  12. Could anybody please tell me if this lens Sigma 73A205 150-500 F/5-6.3 APO HSM DG Telephoto Zoom lens will fit the Sony A6000 camera? I would like to get a long telephoto lens for birding. Any recommendations on other lenses with maximum reach of at least 400mm that fit my a6000 camera? Cheers Roman
  13. Sony A6300 + LA-EA3 + Sigma 24-105 f/4 Art
  14. I'm thinking to upgrade my kit lens to Sigma 17-70 but I read some articles that Sigma 17-70 HSM is not compatible with Sony A57. I don't want to purchase USB dock and I'll buy from Amazon as used. Does anyone have information about this? If it is like that. What do you recommend for zoom lens?
  15. Hello All! I've been reading here for a while and am having trouble deciding on my next lens.. hopefully someone can help with the decision! As the title says really, I'm torn between the Sony e mount 35mm 1.8 and the Sigma 30mm 1.4... I'm getting the lens almost entirely for video, and low light at that. it will also be a walk around photo lens from time time.. I have tried the sony in-store and was pleased with it: light weight, bokeh looked nice and it has OSS which is kind of a big deal as I will be shooting video handheld.. I know the a6500 has IBIS but I don't know if ill miss the OSS on the Sigma.. As for the sigma, I've never used a non native lens and am concerned about AF performance and as i said above, it's stability... however it is considerably cheaper than the sony and seems to be very highly rated.. Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone tried the sigma? Other lens choices? Thanks for reading!
  16. In my latest blogpost i´m taking the Canon 85mm 1.8 for a testride again, this time with the Sigma MC11 Adapter on the mighty Sony A7rII. See why this is another great affordable Canon lens which you can use on your Sony which gives you great looking 4K Video and very sharp photos with very nice bokeh! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=2764
  17. Finally found some time to finish my latest blogpost with video about 1 day i had with the amazing Sony A7rII. Read my full experience using the A7rII with the MC11 + Canon 70-200 F4L, Sigma 24mm 1.4 and the FE 50mm 1.8 on the Megapixelmonster. Get some chips and beer and enjoy! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=2558
  18. Hello Folks, I'm hoping for some feedback on "Long Zoom" lenses from actual users. My head has been spinning with all the options available, Sony, Tamron, Sigma, Used, New, OS, non OS, etc. After tentatively deciding on either the Sigma 50-500mm or the Tamron 150-600mm, I discovered neither lens was offered for Pentax K mount, my current system. That wasn't exactly bad news. I enjoy my Pentax cameras, but have a strong preference for EVF and welcomed the chance to buy another Sony. I once had the a77 and don't recall why I sold it. I loved the camera and got great results. I guess I just wanted something new? Well, I've ordered an a77ii and it will arrive Wednesday, with the 18-135mm and 55-3oomm lenses. I'm looking forward to enjoying my new camera while I make a final decision on which long zoom to buy. We have a trip planned for late May through Teton and Yellowstone Parks, so that's my time frame to buy the new lens. I strongly value user opinions over professional reviews and spec sheets. Any advice or comments will be really appreciated! Thanks! Jack
  19. I don't have the body yet, but one has to plan with lenses longer ahead. Are there any better solutions, than the SEL057FEC? Reviews don't exactly rave about it... BTW reviews on 3rd party fisheye options, canon incl are not much better. Does anyone had the chance to compare the converter to a native fisheye head-to-head?​
  20. Hi, I'm trying to use a Sigma macro on my A7R, with the EF Fotodiox Pro adapter. I need the through contacts for aperture, even though the AF doesn't work well. I'm finding that I have a contact issue and I can't trace it. My other EF lenses work fine (again, AF is dodgy at best), but it happens with both my Sigma macros. It will fire maybe two or up to ten times without problem, then will just lock up and do a time exposure, but with nothing recorded and it will reset all menu settings to the values before I put the adapter on. I can get it to reset by removing the lens and replacing it, but that's a hassle. The camera is on a tripod, and nothing is changing between exposures, focus is locked off, it just seems random. Question: is this known behaviour? Is there a solution? From the reviews I've read, it seems Fotodiox is pretty well the same as the Metabones, so I'm unwilling to spend a load of dosh on a new one. Any help gratefully received! thanks Phil
  21. I was looking into the Sigma Prime 35/1.4 but passed because of low light focus issues. Can anyone recommend a sharp 35/1.4 in or around the 1K to 1.2K price point? I know it is kind of like finding sasquatch for that price but I thought I would give it a shot! Eric
  22. Hi guys, So I made a mistake, being new to photography, and purchased the Sigma 17-50 not knowing that it was an A mount lens for my a6000. I have been looking for a good replacement for my kit lens and with all the good reviews of this lens, pulled the trigger and got this. I realized the problem and now need your help to fix it. From what I have ready, the only option is the LA-EA4 which is 400 bucks and to be honest, out of my budget. Please let me know if there are any other options out there for me or should I just return it and get something different. If so, what are the top 3 lenses for the E mount cameras that I should be looking out for??? Thank you for your help in advance!!!
  23. In Part II of my Review for the Sony A7II Firmware 2.0 Update i´m comparing 3 affordable autofocus adapters Canon to Sony E-Mount. The contenders: Commlite Viltrox Fotga I´m also taking a quick look on the uncompressed RAW feature which is now available on the Sony A7II. Get some popcorn and beer and watch my video! http://www.dsphotoblog.com/?p=390
  24. Sony recently gave us Sony A7II owners an amazing christmas present :-) The Firmware Update 2.0. This free firmware update transforms the A7II in the little brother of the A7rII, which allready has Phase Detect AF. In this first part of my 2 part review i take a look how good the Sigma 24mm 1.4 Canon Mount with the Commlite Adapter works in Single and Continues Focus modes. https://dsphotosblog.wordpress.com/2015/11/23/sony-a7ii-firmware-update-2-0-review-part-i/
