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.
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?

My Sony ILCE-7M3 wont start, probably something that very wrong?
I use original Sony battery for the moment, have also tried with 3-party batteries but the same message appear...
Message: Incompatible Battery, Use correct model. When I charge, the charge indicator led flashing fast(orange).
I dont have any battery door, because it was removed when the vertical battery grip was used, just sold the grip and one of my objective..... and now it won't even start with original battery.
I have loosen the metal cover under the camera to see possibility to moisture but nothing there.... have not dropped the camera..
The battery is charged to 7.2volt

Basically I need immediate access to video files on the computer as soon as they are shot on the camera.
I have a video capture card but it is limited to 60 FPS and I haven't found one that goes any higher. Furthermore, I'm believe that the a7iii can't output higher than 60fps via hdmi anyway.
Anyone know a reasonable way to get videos from camera to computer for immediate accessibility without removing the SD Card or sending via wireless?
Maybe a tethering utility that allows video transfer? I have Sony remote/edit/viewer bundle but that doesn't allow video transfer.
I was looking for an official number for the A7ii for shutter life expectancy but couldn't find anything on sonys page. On other bodies like A7Rii iii snd A6400 A6600 and so on they state how much the shutter has been tested for. If ypu google it you get unconfirmed 200k, but that isn't from sony themselves so Im suspicious about that.
Btw, how much worse is the af on the 7ii compared to the 7rii?
I'm new to this forum and did a quick check as i'm sure this has been answered before but I couldn't find anything.
I have an A6000 that I want to download the Time Lapse app to but in order to do this I need to connect it to a laptop. I've now tried two different laptops and two different genuine Sony cables but still nothing. I've been through the troubleshooting on the Sony website but none of that worked including trying the different USB Connection settings.
I have issues with the combination of A7R-II, LA-EA3 and the following lenses:
SAL70-200G (F2.8 lens) and SAL70-400G (F5.6 lens)
These lenses will focus occasionally, but also stop focusing suddenly. De-attaching and re-attaching the LA-EA3 to the camera body resolves the problem, but it happens each 2 or 3 shots so making it useless.
With the Sigma 50 F1.4DG this never happens, so I was thinking about bad electrical connections but clearly it is not always the case.
Hi everyone, first time here - but not first time Sony Alpha user. I have a problem that seems to be pretty basic, but could not find an answer for the life of me.
I have a Sony A7III (newest firmware 3.10), which I use for nightscape photography a lot. Like many other Milky Way shooters on a budget, I use the venerable Samyang/Rokinon AF 14mm f/2.8. The lens is optically perfect, but the manual focus-by-wire ring is pretty much unusable for astro. I've been looking for a way to control the
