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

    18 months between models being significantly upgraded is a joke when your shelling out that much on a camera!! I foresee the S/H market being flooded with A7Riii's knocking the secondhand values of all sony's for six, I'm just glad I got out chasing features & megapixels and turned to the dark...

    Cracking lens with a modern style of rendering, very sharp, superb micro contrast, only just pipped by the modern Summicrons for sharpness. I still have mine even though I now have a Summicron 50mm. In short if you can't afford a "cron then you need the Zeiss. The only downsides are the 43mm...

  7. magicaxeman vs grey camera gear, prices so close.

    Of course by buying from the grey market you are breaking the law, but no one seems to care about that and the closure of UK camera stores caused by buying from the grey market instead of UK dealers.

    Leica advise......please.

    I was in a similar situation last year but when it came down to it I realised that the camera had to have a rangefinder & manual focus or I wouldn't get that authentic Leica experience that meant just one thing, an M, the M9 was out due to the sensor problem, the M240 was to heavy so that just...

    Are cameras and menus too complicated?

    It took me 3 days and several youtube video's to set up my Sony A7RIII via its plethora of menu's, it took me 10mins to set up my Leica M10 including the fast access menu for regularly used features. So yes they have gotten far too complicated.

    How content are you with your camera?

    I've often wondered if people always get G.A.S or are always looking for the next camera that can focus a millisecond faster,lock on and track more reliably, has a larger sensor, more megapixels, better high ISO/low noise etc etc........... Or are you content with the gear you have? Does it...

    Beauty Dish/Stripbox advice

    I'm looking at adding a beauty dish to my small home studio but i'm not sure of which size to go for 16 inch or 22 inch? I've ruled out folding dishes and the larger 27inch dish as its just to big for here and prefer the metal beauty dishes, I'm also thinking a grid would be a good idea to...

    Stupid question - re: power of lights indoors

    I had a similar dilemma myself recently, a chat with Garry convinced me I was making the right decision for the right reasons and I went for the Godox AD400Pro from Lencarta it struck the right balance of enough power and features ( such as IGBT) without going over the top power wise for...

    Nikon 200-500 case/transport bag ?

    Try looking at the Lower lens cases, I had one for my Olympus 300mm f2.8 Pro, It wasn't too expensive and did a great job, I know my brother has your lens I'll ask him what he uses when I see him at the weekend, but I know for his Nikon 600mm f4 he made a case out of a rucksack & foam.

    godox ad360 v2

    As said the lack of modelling lights can be a pain in the backside, I have the AD180 and find it difficult to envisage where the light will fall without shooting a lot of test shots. The other thing is I believe the mk2 versions only come in Canon & Nikon mounts for the ttl features. I think...

    Canon Pro 10s - Mac Mojave 10.14.

    I know a lot of people have had problems installing this printer on a mac running Mojave, I did too but I managed to get around it after a lot of head scratching and searching. The main problems are the instructions or rather lack of them and the combined software package/driver on the canon uk...
