    Recommend me a flash for Sony

    Hi, If it's the flash you put in the classified section, I have the same and I've tested it on my A7II and TTL works. I wouldn't have thought it would be any different for any other camera using the Sony interface?

    Do I need a 35mm lens if I have a 50mm?

    Personally I've found the two focal lengths too close and the effort to change lens isn't worth it. I'd rather spend more time concentrating on my composition with the focal length available to me rather than think about switching lens.

    Honeymoon Trip

    For the time of year you're going it's going to be pretty humid, I'd say try to travel as light as possible so I think your two choices would be ideal. Having been to HK a lot, the last thing you want to be doing is changing lenses constantly, especially in busy streets; let's just say the...

    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    I've considered that and you're right that is probably where I would look into buying, but my concern is we're waiting for a good value fairly last minute honeymoon right now so I would potentially need a camera at fairly short notice!

    The Amazing Sony A7 / A9 / Anything else welcome Mega Thread!

    In the process of selling all my Nikon gear at the moment, mainly due to lack of time shooting. My future plans were to pick up an A7 at a later date when I have some free time. It's starting to look like a lot of places are starting to not stock the A7 anymore? I couldn't find anything...

    Transporting equipment - shoulder pain

    I am a relatively fit and healthy guy but no matter what bags I've tried, I've still had shoulder pains after long periods of carrying. I agree with some of the points raised above. Yes, some bags help distribute the weight more, but when it comes down to it, it's all about planning. I know...

    Nikon 28mm 1.8G

    I've got one. Have to say, I really do like it, it's probably the lens which is on my camera the most. I'm sure you're going to love it.

    Flowers and Bees

    First attempt at taking some shots at flowers, would've helped if I didn't choose such a windy day. Would have liked a slightly better angle of the bee. These were at Alnwick Garden, wish I had visited in the summer though. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

    Nikon D600 / D610 Official Users thread - Anything D6x0 related

    Just under 1,000 shots and the first oil spot has appeared :/. Not sure if I should send to service centre or try to clean it myself. Only had the camera 2 months!

    Another Studio Thread

    I'm trying to setup a very basic studio for portrait shoots (including a newborn shoot coming up), product shots and creative macro shots. This is my first studio setup and it's not something I'd use all the time, so I'm not looking to spend too much, probably £200 at the most. I currently...

    Roseberry Topping

    Nice capture, nice to see a shot from the top rather than the hill itself.

    New York City

    Very nice shots. Favourites are probably 1, 2 and 3. On 3, is that dust on the sensor or are there still particles flying around?

    Worth upgrading my 50mm 1.8D?

    Thanks for the advice. I think I will keep an eye on the market and see if I can get a good quality one for cheap, otherwise I will stick with my 1.8D for now.

    Horsefly wanting my blood.

    That crop shot is amazing. I can't believe you had the composure to capture those shots, or maybe I'm just a big girl :D.

    Nikon Nifty Fifty's

    I currently have the 1.8D and although it's easy to get the bokeh with the lens. I don't think it's bokeh is as nice as the newer G lenses - although I'm just going by the images I've seen online and haven't tried the newer lenses myself. For the price though, you can't grumble, this was...

    A visit to the North Yorkshire coast (and a bit of steam)

    Stunning set. Hard to imagine I've lived in North Yorkshire for nearly 30 years after seeing these shots!

    DR videos are always good value for entertainment. I do enjoy TNG for his balanced reviews of equipment.
