Hi. I’m trying to find an affordable lens for my A7III that I can attach and walk around the neighborhood with. I live in a semi-rural area so I want something that will be good for landscape shots too. Id prefer not to carry around a large lens on my walks. If anyone has any suggestions I’d be very appreciative.
I am about to get a Sony A7iii and a Panasonic GH5s.
I do wedding video and photography, and intend to go into studio setups as well.
I want to get three lenses for both cameras. What lenses mount (brand) shoud I get.
Sony E mount lenses
Canon EF mount lenses
Or the panasonic mount lenses
The lens focal length is not an issue just the brand/mount
No matter the set up Id probably get adapters for either or one of the lenses.
I included the canon because they retain resale value after a long time
Hi all does any one know if the polarising filter unit for the Sony FE 400mm f/2.8gm lens part number Sony VF-DCPL1 Drop-in will fit a Minolta AF 400 f/4.5 A mount lens I don’t want to part with over £400 if it won’t fit or is there any other solution.
Ok here goes,
My kit isn’t great although I’m not a professional either.
Camera - A7
Lens - 55mm prime and 24-105mm G also the paper weight 28-70mm that ships with A7 bundle.
The plan is to pick up a A7iii and a 100-400mm and add it to my pack. - I hate changing lens’s I’m a dust magnet.
Not interested in video overly. Drone is pretty good with that I guess.
Im heading away to the far reaches of North Western Australia and think that my current setup will be too short and not really keen on getting up close and personal.
Questions I have are.
1. What should I buy first A7iii or 100-400mm
2. Should I ditch the A7 or leave it as redundancy/spare with the 55mm mounted semi permanently as it gives a great pic.
3. Is my lens 24-105mm a waste on the older A7
4. Is the A7iii my answer?
5. What are the cons with what I have and will there be a noticeable difference with the A7iii?
Look forward to your help
I know this topic is out there in abundance but I wanted to put it in a forum where Sony products wouldn’t be bashed!
I saved my pennies and finally switched from a canon 80D, using an APS-C sensor, to a Sony A7iii in September. This was in an attempt to change my hobby into something that might make me some weekend money.
Annoyingly I could only afford to buy the Sony with the native 50mm 1.8. Unfortunately, the love affair of had with the nifty fifty from canon was sorely missed. Working as a part time family lifestyle photographer, I found it just lacked.... Something.
Anyway, I’ve once again been saving and want your opinions on diversifying the lenses at my disposal. I think I miss the focal length of my crop 50mm, so the highly praised Sony 85mm 1.8 the first lens in leaning towards but would you then chop the 50mm in for a little more towards say a Sigma art 35 1.4.
If you were after 2 general lifestyle primes to go with a 70-200 canon f4, what would they be?
Thanks for your thoughts and I’m pleased to be joking the community!
Hello. I use sony A6400 and noticed about some blocky artifacts when use 25fps andISO more than 3200 and object move quiclly. i used good transcend card 128gb v30 and this problem is not in low bitrate. I test some cases and discovered what this artifacts become on all PP besides SLOG2 and SLOG3 and only on 25,30,50,60 fps, not 100-120fps, ISO > 3200. Anybody has this problem or it's defect of my camera?
This example includes settings: HLG1 4k 25fps, ISO 5000 https://yadi.sk/i/7GE68PqfjE
I'm sorry to come in at a probably unwanted tangent on this, but... the thought of being on either side of a flash gun, subject or photographer, on the street, makes me most uncomfortable. I'm assuming, of course, that "as I wander the street and snap people," means strangers. If not, then this comment is irrelevant. Anyway, please forgive the off-topic interruption
Now this is clearly becoming way off-topic, but I beg your patience.
I just returned from walking the dog outside, for the night, and kept thinking about this exchange.
It's no wonder, it took an "eastern" mind like @Thad E Ginathom's (from India) to make my "western" mind (Switzerland/Germany) aware of the fact, that "waiting" is primarily a state of mind, not of the body.
As a dog-owner, or at least the husband of the real dog-owner 😉 , I see how we train the obedience of the do
I have the A7rii and I use a Godox V860II for this, both off and on camera and it works fine.
But I wanted to use flash on my camera as I wander the street and snap people.
The Godox is rather on the large side, and I was hoping to find two guns, and place them either side of the lens (or one above and one below).
Or should I just stay with the Godox? Its just a little too big to hold in the hand...
Does anyone know which flash guns I might use for this?
