Re: A900 and standard portable flash

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Egg on face.....I never looked under the funny looking plastic foot :oops: Yep, that solved that one...hopefully. So that leaves me with just the flash "off camera" to sort. Can I trigger both from the A900 without mounting one on camera, or would I need to have 3 flashe...

A900 and standard portable flash

Hi, I upgraded my a700 to the a900 and now cant use my F42AM flash off camera. I also purchased a second hand flash stand kit, two stands, umbrellas, reflectors etc but can't use the flashes on them because they are standard flash mounts. I thought the easy way round this would be to buy a adaptor, ...

Ordered the 900 yesterday form warehouse express at 3pm, arrived next day at 8am! It's beautiful! Worst bit was having to wait for the batt to charge.

Re: A900 suitable lenses?

Hi Frank, Thanks for that. Just ordered a MN 24~85mm from eBay so looking forward to trying that. I used the Sony 50mm 1.4 lens on the A700 and the pictures from that were amazing, so have kept that one back for the A900.

Re: A900 suitable lenses?

Many thanks for the replies - thanks David I was looking at the MN 17-35mm over the weekend and found one on eBay but from USA and was not sure about import taxes so left it for now. I also saw a Vivitar Series 1 19~35mm which apparently has a very good rep, this was going for £75 but the various fo...

Re: A900 suitable lenses?

Thanks - sounds like a nice collection, CZ, are they as good as everyone makes out or is it just the name you are paying for?

Re: A900 suitable lenses?

Errm, cause I don't want a video recorder, I want a fully featured camera, even if it does have mechanical parts that will eventually wear out. :D
