NEX/Alpha Apps Question

Greetings All, Anyone know if a wired shutter release cable will work with the Sony apps like Star Trail, Bracket Pro, Light Shaft, etc? I own an A7s and an A6000. A third party wireless remote works fine with both OUTSIDE of any apps. It seems to get locked out of them. Can I assume a wired one wil...

Re: RX-1 vs FF SLR: Please Pile On!

Thanks for your reply, David. I had forgotten another consideration with holding onto the RX-1 was the added expense of $450 (US) for the EVF.

RX-1 vs FF SLR: Please Pile On!

Looking for some input/advice... I first bought an RX-1 (and love it) a few months ago. Having a bit of buyer's remorse (due to price only), I bought an RX-100 shortly after that to compare. The thought was to return the RX-1 within the 45 day return period (buydig.com) if I found the RX-100 had sim...

Re: Need Advice on Choosing a Lens for my a65

Very affordable, not too heavy and compact enough for most bodies...most importantly good optics.

Thanks. How does the Tamron compare with the Sony at almost half the price, I wonder?

Re: Need Advice on Choosing a Lens for my a65

Thank you, gentlemen. After checking all suggestions, the Tamron and Sony DT 16-50 are the frontrunners so far.

Need Advice on Choosing a Lens for my a65

Just looking for recommendations on a replacement for the stock 18-55 lens. A comparable zoom with better build quality for under $700, like something from Sigma or Tamron. Thanks in advance! (Apologies in advance for my noobishness).

Re: Need advice on choosing a full -frame SLR

Thanks, Birma and Heidfirst. That list of letter designations for APS-C lenses is most helpful. It's becoming apparent to me that jumping into the FF SLR world might not be doable. While I could afford either a 6D or D600 kit, having to likely wait a good year before being able to afford another len...

Need advice on choosing a full -frame SLR

About 8 months ago, after being a Canon Digital Rebel user for the previous 5 years (had only a modest investment in lenses), I jumped ship to Sony Alpha a65. (Again, I have a modest investment in used Konica/Minolta lenses now.) It's a move I don't regret. But now I think I may be ready to step up ...

Konica/Minolta Lenses with A99

I currently own an a65 and am thinking of upgrading to an a99 (body only, keeping the a65 kit lens). Will the a65 kit lens and my Konica/Minolta lenses work with the a99? I realize this is not optimal, but a new a99 body is the absolute limit for my budget (for now). Thanks in advance!

Mp4 vs AVCHD

CPU power is not really an issue. Just wondering if one is either better or easier to work with in NLE's?

Re: Sigma 50mm 1:2.8 DG Macro

Well despite being identified as a "grey market item" on the accompanying work order, they fixed it free of charge! Works like a charm now. Said they replaced the flange (?) There IS still good in the world. Thank you, Sigma!
