Has anyone had and issue with their Sony camera flickering outside? I've been scouring the internet for the last 2 days trying to figure it out and have yet to find anything. Im shooting on a Sony a7iii, with a Sigma 100-400 Canon. MC-11 adapter. All of which are updated to the newest firmware. The issue only happens when shooting 1080, 120fps. 60, 30, and 24fps work fine. My shutter speed is the correct 1/250. ISO is manually set, and so are white balance, and all other settings. Nothing is set to auto. Here is the link to an example video: https://youtu.be/dKlSIuqQIAc. I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
New to this forum, in the hope that someone can help solve this mystery. I recently installed PIE (Picture Information Extractor) more out of interest than anything else. But one thing this shows is the shutter count as it is held in the EXIF metadata. I have had my A7II for little over a year and was surprised to see a shutter count of around 14000. I am not a professional and do take loads of images but not that much.
Now I looked at a number of images taken on my holiday last year. The first image has a shutter count of 2207, the last taken 16 days later, has a count of 7535, that's 5328 shutter actuation (an average of 333/day) I also looked at the image names, the first was DCS01090, the final was DSC01758, suggesting less than 700 images taken.
I tried some other EXIF software, and they all come up with the same number of actuation - It just does not seem right.
Is perhaps ImageCount not quite what it seems? or am I missing something?
I just received my Sony a7iii less than a week ago. When attaching and taking some test photos with a newly received Sony 70-300mm lens, suddenly the f-stop was displayed as "F--", and there was no image visible on the display, or EVF. I turned off the camera and reconnected the Sony 90mm lens, and same thing, F-- for the fstop value. Since this occurred with two different lenses, the problem seems to be with the camera. I tried a reset in the menu, but this did not work, none of the menu items would work. So I removed the battery for about 30 seconds, replaced it, and it's been fine for a couple of days now.
Has anyone else seen this type of glitch in the a7iii?? I did see one other thread regarding the F-- issue. I'm inclined to return the camera to amazon, especially since the box that it was shipped in looked to be in bad shape, bad enough I took photos of it.
My a7R4 on a DJI Matrice 600 drone won't display "REC" and "STNBY" on the external monitor on the ground (DJI CrystalSky Ultra 7.85), so when I tell the Sony to start and stop video recording, it does the start and stop, but I can't tell when it's recording or not. I see "REC" and "STNBY" on the a7R4 LCD, but when the camera is in the air, that's no help. I've been to some YouTube videos but they haven't given me a Sony menu solution. Anyone here know where in the Sony a7R4 menu to produce a non
You answer your own question why: " absolute best image quality despite bigger file size and more noise on pixel level."
Given my experience with 35mm, med and large format I know what increased resolution looks like even with much smaller prints of 8x10 and 11x14. In this case its certainly not marketing crap. Its a real world improvement. If you are using the kit zoom then perhaps there is not much more to resolve but again I'm using quality prime lenses and I know
Hello you all!
I'm trying to make an automatic turntable for object 3D scanning (photogrammetry).
I use this connector to interact with camera multiport:
Sony pinout on Multiport
For now it's working well, I use some custom electronics to trigger the shutter connecting trigger pin to GND. But it only work with the self-timer activated.
It makes my scan process really slow then (even with the 2sec selftimer)
Do you know a way to use directly the trigger pin (I mean,
I was also going to mention the A7x's. 24mp is absolutely fine for me, image quality is great and it's more than big enough for any print I would ever want to do. Until then, I don't see a need for more.
For what it's worth, I previously owned a Pentax K1 (36mp). It was nice to have that additional crop-ability but it was entirely unnecessary for every scenario I would use my photographs (currently).
many forums and the "pros" once were certain that the star eater issue makes the Sony A7 Series unusable for astrophotography but I always had good results with my Sony A7rII. So I recently went ahead and had it astromodified. The thick IR-Block Filterglas was replaced with a thin Baader substitute that lets IR Light down to the h-alpha line and the sII line through to the sensor with high transmission. The results can be seen in detail on my google drive link here:
