Forum for older Sony Alpha cameras

Recommended Posts

Are there users here that are running Sony a99 and A550 cameras. These are the  two cameras I use and I have  questions on how to use them  best for fill lighting shooting and outdoor wedding for example. I using the Zeis 24-70 2.8 in the a99 with a Sony HVL-F32M Flash and a prime 50 mm 1.4 on the  a550 with a  Sony HLV-42AM Flash

But thankfully, Microsoft did not make your camera.  You'd need to point to Sony doing that to cameras: that would be relevant.

Although, on the whole I do sympathise with a policy of not doing unnecessary firmware updates just because they are there, but only if there is actually  relevant fix or desired functionality in them there release notes
