  1. 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
  2. Hopefully, when released these will be easier to get then the 400mm f/2.8 GM. Not likely to be announced during the 2019 NABShow although, SONY is making an announcement today at 2:oo pm PST From Alpha Rumors https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/new-sony-patent-discloses-500-f-4-and-600-f-4-e-mount-lens-design/
  3. This is a brief summary of the problem: The megaissue is with the Sony A7rII (but guess it’s applicable to other ILCEs too) and the two new GM lenses (24-70 and 85). Maybe it's applicable to other lenses too but I can't confirm as I don't have them. I confirm there are no issues with old Sony Zeiss 55 and 16-35 zoom. The issue is related to the the iris not opening while focusing with the 85 1.4 and 24-70 2.8GM. Setting Effect ON/OFF toggle setting has no effect (mine is always on OFF anyway). Practically speaking, you can’t focus accurately in normal dimly lit studio situations when shooting over f4. Iris stay closed while focusing and focus accuracy and speed drop. If you have to shoot at f8 (and in studio that’s the norm, but f5.6 proved impossible too) you can’t really focus at all unless you’ve a lot of ambient light too, even manually because the same accuracy drop is in the viewfinder, stopped down you can’t see the exact focus point even in manual focus when zoomed because the image is too coarse and spoiled by digital grain. It's a total show stopper. Previously I was using a Metabones/Canon 24/70 and Canon 85 combo with optimal results but I mistakenly thought that the new Sony duo would have been a wonderful choice and actually they are, but only when shooting wide open or almost wide open. Stopped down the focus is simply unusable and even worse prone to errors. My question is: does anybody know if Sony is aware of the issue and is going to fix it? Why they did such a big mistake with the new GM lenses? I’ve checked online and it's not my problem, other people working professionally noticed the very same issue. You can find a detailed description of the issue on diglloyd just to quote one. http://diglloyd.com/blog/2016/20160419_1756-SonyA7R_II-SonyGM-focusingBug.html He finds that even at f4 accuracy drops below the acceptable range. My results at f4 were slightly better but probably because people moves all the time so there are more chances that they move also towards the focus point. If I need to shoot at f8 with studio flashes how can I focus this way? I can't realistically open iris and then close before every single click. Des somebody know of any engineer’s email that I can contact about this? Is there a way to contact a Sony developer directly? You know, writing to support emails is totally useless for such critical but very peculiar issuers… Thanks everybody for any help. Maurizio Camagna http://camagna.it
  4. This film was mostly shot on the A6500. Maui is an amazing place and this was our first visit. Thanks for watching!
  5. Hi, I have a A6000 with a SEL35F18 lens. About a week ago I noticed the camera/lens will not focus on anything that is further than 4 meters away. It says on the display it is on infinity. It’s like the sensor on the focus ring needs resetting or something. Any suggestions would be appreciated Thank you Jacques
  6. Hi Guys, I just wanted to share a Behind the Scene Video I've made back in 2014 and some recent Fashionshoot with a german actress well know for the Netflix Series "DARK"
  7. Hi Sony Users, I'm new to this Forum and I've got a question concerning using the Timelapse app from Playmemories and Premiere CC. I have tons of timelapse videos that I made with my A7s, using the App but premiere doesn't accept the AVI format. Does anyone has a clue? Do I need to convert it to a specific format? Thanks in advance for your help. Florina
  8. I created an account to warn everyone who will listen. The last few months have been a nightmare come true. To give you some background, I am a semi-professional landscape photographer who has been shooting for about five years. I purchased a Sony a7s in late 2015 and shot for roughly a year and a half before my camera needed a wet cleaning. I had a few welded dust specs that dry methods could not remove. I, like many others, feared giving my sensor a wet cleaning, so I looked into other options. I came across the sensor gel stick for Sony cameras and saw that it had a few good reviews and was being sold by one of the popular photography educators (a simple google search for Sony sensor gel sticks will lead you to his site). I decided to give it a try. I ordered direct from his site. From watching videos, it seemed like a foolproof method. I placed the gel stick on the first dust spec, expecting it to be removed without issue. To my shock, the gel stick stuck to the sensor. I immediately panicked and pulled the gel stick off with a fair amount of force and to my horror, it left a large smear of residue. At this point, I stopped thinking clearly and placed the gel stick on one of the sticky pads, thinking that it would make the gel stick usable. I proceeded to place the gel stick on the sensor once again, and to my dismay, it stuck to the sensor once again. I don't think I've been so angry and shocked in my life. I waited until morning to cool down before I shot an email to the photographer. He proceeded to refund my account and told me a simple wet cleaning would fix the problem. He said that the problem was that my sensor had never been wet cleaned, so the gel stick would stick to it. Not wanting to take any chances, I sent my camera into Sony's repair service provider. I received my camera back after a few weeks. To my dismay, the sensor was clean but it had a few new dust specs, plus there was a very faint mark at the bottom of the sensor. I thought maybe they didn't get all of the residue. I sent it back in, but received it in roughly the same condition. I concluded that the only way forward was for me to remove the specs and mark myself. I decided that since I would be doing the wet cleaning, I might as well give the gel stick another try on the dust specs since the sensor now had two wet cleanings performed on it. To add insult to injury, the gel stick left more marks, though not as bad as the first time. That was the last try for the gel stick. I went ahead with a wet cleaning. I used a few different products to remove the residue and dust. The mark was unable to be removed. At that time, I realized the mark was not residue but rather a scratch. The scratch is located exactly where I first placed the gel stick. I sent the photographer an email about this and received no response back. The product is still being sold on his website with the same disclaimer that he is not responsible for any damage from use of the product.

    my second image doing night shots with a mirrorless. The feature i found to be really nice with these i think the a6300 has this feature also is to set a custom button to (bright monitoring) and when you are under the night sky and in manual mode and hit the custom button you can basically see in the dark which is fantastic for obtaining focus.

    Florida Sunrise I took a early morning off while in Jupiter, Florida and headed over to Coral Cove Park. This was my first time there and only had a hour, great location. 30 Second exposure with the Sony A7RII, 24mm Ziess lens on the very compact Vanguard Veo tripod, processed in Capture One.
