Re: Sony Flash Sync

I see that you say I may be able to get an adapter from Sony but I can't find one unless I'm looking for the wrong thing in the wrong place? I've been to the Sony site but just seems I go round in circles trying to find it! :? There are two Sony models - depending upon your needs you can use either...

Re: Photoworld Gallery

I am looking for a picture to complete a spread in Photoworld. The pictures already chosen each show an animal in its environment, and cover a range of scales from a fly, through a mouse, to a horse. The remaining space is square but a slightly more vertical shape could be used (not more than a 10 ...

Re: Sony Flash Sync

Hi Tom, I have Interfit Studio Flash that I used with my Minolta 700si but now I'm apparently unable to use it? :( You should be able to. What have you tried, and what was the problem?

Re: Sony Flash Sync

Hi - does anyone know if or when Sony might make a cam that will sync with Studio Flash and if they will upgrade older cameras to use it please :?: They all do with the addition of either an expensive Sony adapter, or an inexpensive 3rd party one. The A700 and A900 have PC socket built in which cou...

Re: Wind turbines

You are probably thinking of the huge wind farm on Hwy 58. I have passed by there are couple of times. Here is a photo of just a small portion: http://www.bakubo.com/galleries/California/slides/CRW_3666.jpg Wow - that is pretty impressive! I once drove around a windmill infested area for ages tryin...

are any of these still available ?


Yep. The only reason they are not yet on E-Bay is that I have not yet had the time/energy to do a set of photos of them.

What are you interested in? PM me if you want more info.

Re: Noise reduction software usage

To the extent to which it is practical, I would appreciate step-by-step "cookbook" suggestions for using such software. I am one of the people who learn much better by actually doing a task, and if I am able to follow in your footsteps I'll start to grasp the concepts more quickly. Here i...

Re: A900 DRO & APPLE APERTURE ISSUE

Dear all, I have been shooting RAW with DRO, but upon importing to aperture the DRO settings seem to be discarded. Anyone know how I can resolve? Birma is spot on. DRO does not apply to RAW. I believe that Sony's own software will try an interpret the DRO settings from the data stored in Exif and a...
