I couldn't find an answer to these problems I have been having lately with the A7iii, so hopefully you guys can help!
I am shooting real estate on an A7iii with a 16-35 Zeiss F4 and a Godox V860ii-s hot shoe flash in TTL mode. Here are my problems: For one, if I leave the camera in auto white balance and even on a tripod, the camera will produce two completely different images if I take two pictures. One shot will be properly balanced color and the other will be all orange/red.
The other issue I have is with my exposure and the communication from the A7iii to the flash. My colleague shoots using a Nikon Z6 and Canon EOS-R. Both cameras have native 16-35 F4 lenses on them and both are using the same hot shoe light. What's frustrating me is, despite setting all 3 cameras to 1/30, F8 and ISO 640, his Nikon and EOS-R produce far better exposed shots than my A7iii. It's obviously not the lenses or our exposure settings, so I must have missed a hidden setting on the A7iii menu system or the communication between the A7iii and the Godox flash.
Either way, I'm frustrated with having to either crank the ISO to 1,600-2,000 or waste time/money with figuring out the manual flash settings on the Godox for each room of the house.
Is there any advice anyone can give me to help solve these issues?
Still working how to move my Nikon workflow over to Sony.
A gripe I'm having is the SD backup in camera.
I have an UHS2 card in slot 1. UHS1 in slot 2.
They write and clear the buffer at the exact same rate.
I did a little test and filled the buffer (about 55 compressed raw shots) and it took around 36 seconds to dump to both cards. And I could see on screen both cards dumped at the same rate.
Taking slot 2 card out, leaving just the uhs2 card. 60 shots cleared in 24 seconds.
So....I just wasted money on uhs 2 cards or am I missing something?
I'd have thought the slot 2 dump would just happen in the back ground. Maybe grabbing from slot 1 so the buffer can just clear quickly.
Have just got my new Sony A7 III. I'm having trouble with too much echo/reverb when using external microphone. When recording in an environment where there should be no echo at all (e.g in a forest with snow) it sounds that it was recorded inside an empty room. I use a Røde VideoMic Pro when recording. I also tried other mic's with the same result. When recording with the same mic's on my smartphone, the sound is normal. Is this normal to A7 III? Anyone else with similar experience?

I have a Sony A7 III and (unfortunately) I think there are no good photographers working on the development of these cameras. There is no other explanation for such silly mistakes. Or they are good photographers but they are stupid. One more stupid BIG mistake. The focus point is.... what color ? GREY !!!!
Same issues over here (OnePlus 7)... WiFi connection on phone disappears while connecting... Already tried turning off mobile data, uninstalling and reinstalling the app, resetting the SSID... shame... Tested it on my wife's iPhone, not a single problem.
Hi everyone, hope people are keeping safe despite everything that is going on.
I got an issue with my a6500 and I'm not sure how it happened. The middle button in the navigation wheel (the one used to select) has been reconfigured to act as a 'playback' button. More precisely, the button will allow me to select but then will immediately send me to playback. In practice it means that any settings change requiring more than 1 click has now become impossible to change for me (that includes fac
I have a sony a6000 camera and I recently bought a sony FE 50 mm 1.8. Different focus modes work while taking photos but when I switch to video only manual focus is allowed, which does not make any sense. Does anyone know about this issue?
