Re: Oh dear A99 problem!

I'm just spit-balling... I had a similar situation with my NEX 7. I would take a shot and then it would lock-up, and then a while later I would hear an additional shutter sound. I would have to remove the battery to clear things up, but then the problem would repeat. I thought the camera was a gonne...

Love the shots, Valery!

P.S. Now I'm curious... what are all of the languages you know? I know a little bit of Polish... just enough to get me in trouble. :wink:

Re: Helping Friends with Short Art Films

Well, the photos I posted may be gone (maybe I'll repost a few), but below is the link to the movie on YouTube. Keep in mind that this is a short art house film (with a narrative expressed through acting and dancing) limited to 15 minutes. It's based on the true life story of the young director's gr...

Sury I got about six or seven blurry shot until I stop engine in the car and put the camera on frame off open window... :shock: Definitely need a very fast shutter speed if shootin...
