    I don't adivise for any flash in particular.. I don't even have the Nissin flash .. I just remembered that there was a thread discussing different aspects of using flash on the A7rII..

    For myself, I just bought the Sony HVL-M32.. after some hesitation between the 43 and the 32.. The 32 won because of size. It arrived this morning and I have yet to test it.

    Be well my friend and stay safe and keep that film developing tank nearby .

    Thank you Dave. Have not heard from you in a while....hope you are well. Big mess and inconvenience, but no internal damage to home. The streets finally cleared, and flood waters have subsided, so we will be able to get out today. Our building's elevator sump flooded (no power for the sump pump), so no service, and we are on the 4th floor (44 steps), and at age 79, this is no fun. But we are well and safe.
    Thanks all for their kind words and concern.

    Marc,

    While I usually bring more it was cold (for us in Florida) yesterday and I was concerned abut wind and I decided to try and be super simple in my set up. The sun was to the right in this picture and contributed a lot of the light.

    ISO 400 f9 1/250 with a Nissin Di700A off camera and an Air Commander on camera. The ISO 400 was to get a little more out of the Nissin.

    The Nissin flash was on a stand about 6 to 8 feet from the model about 30 degrees off of the left front side . I had a very small modifier on the light (a flash disc http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...Y&Q=&A=details) as I was concerned about wind when I left that morning.

    Most times I would take out the Godox 360 and a larger octa modifier but I was trying to work as light and compact as possible.

    Jim

    One more from the shoot the other day. They were taken in down town Tampa. Same lighting equipment used. Flash was again off camera and very close to the subject (just out of frame).

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Having purchased the Nissin D700A and Air 1 - two of them - I am happy to recommend them. The D700A is a mid-range unit of average power, but combined with the Air 1 it can form the basis of a low cost high speed sync capable multi flash system

    The HVL-32 is fine, I also own one, although I don't think it does off-camera HSS - if that matters to you.

    Thank you for your input. I may add a HVL-43 later. For the moment it should suit my needs. I got it because you can use it in manual and diminish the power down to 1/128 and this should be enough for what I intend to do. We will see.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    I finally decided to get the Sony FE 90mm F2.8 macro : an online dealer was offering a 10% rebate on all Sony gear and helped with the decision that it was the right time to get one. It arrived this morning and I had a little play with a just received maze of tulips. Hopefully this will bring you some sunny colors in this cold winter day.

    Indeed Barry, perfectly timed and framed!

    As for the previous shot, it's a toss-up, but I think I prefer the standard color version.

    Excellent shots again Barry. From the rock pictures I prefer the slightly darker sky of the first, but then maybe combined with the rocks of the second picture. Probably I'm too picky
    Man's best friend is just perfect, light, composition, position and posture of the two subjects. Awesome!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    off topic to the flash system question: I own a Sony HVL-F60M and two Sony HVL-F43M and use them together with phottix odin transmitter. It works very fine in any regard (ttl/hss/manual and product/portrait/macro). You can also use the 60 as a master without phottix. It works too, but it has some delays (due to a preflash), need more power (again: preflash) and if you're not shooting in HSS, the F60M do a fill flash, even if you turned it off over the menu. If somebody has questions about, she/he can ask me over pm.

    Here some pics for the fun part of this great thread:

    The following four are flashes only (almoust zero ambient light):
    ten shots stack with A7RII + 90/2.8 at f7.1 - 1/500 - ISO 100 with 3 flashes, hss/ttl


    A7 with 55/1.8 at f8 - 1/8000s (wanted to test that) - ISO 800 with 2 flashes, hss/ttl


    A7 with 16-35/4 at f7.1 - 35mm - 1/320s (hss to avoid that the master flash shoot (without phottix odin)) - ISO 200 with 2flashes (+1 as master), hss/ttl
    (it was shot in a completly dark room)


    I don't show pics with people in the internet and currently I only have one testshot of myself on flickr:
    A7 with 90/2.8 at f5 - 1/320s - ISO200 with 1 flash (you can see the softbox in the eye), hss/ttl

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 Series Cameras( all of them)

    Btw, lovely image, Stephen. Welcome to the Sony side of things!

    I was playing around with the Sony "Smooth Reflections" app. For the most part I'm impressed, though I wish it allowed the use of the silent shutter or efcs mode. Who wants to carry a bulky tripod?

    I pushed this image a bit, but the unprocessed one has ridiculously low noise thanks to 128 images being stacked internally! Anyway, it's worth exploring if you're one who likes to use ND filters (I'm not), or has a problem with noise.

    The previous picture was converted to B&W, to fit with the "Mannequins and shop windows" series, but I think that I prefer the color version for this one. What do you think ?

    Annna, let me confuse you by saying I like both. The B&W is quite graphic and a good punchy B&W conversion helps that, but it's more about shapes and lines then the actual subject. The colour version is more about "Mannequins and shop windows" and has a shopping street mood that the B&W version misses. So I think it's more about where and for what purpose you use the picture that dictates which one to use.

    Very pretty!

    You just made up my mind for me - I am ordering this lens right now - I miss shooting macro with my D800E (Sold).

    It was quite cold here one morning.

    Thank you ! Yes, that is a nice lens, somewhat big in relation to the body and for a mirrorless system. This is what has retained me from getting one earlier. But I don't regret the purchase. I hope you'll be happy with your purchase too.

    This is a two frame handheld pano I merged in LR and applied the newly included warp feature to fill the edges to maximize the image size. Reasonably good job.
    Some Lightroom processing as well.

    This is a couple of hours after sunrise but still some color in the southeastern sky.

    Lake Michigan offers an infinite variety of visual stimulation for photographers. Its probably my favorite long term subject.

    I did a post in the processing sub-forum that compares the final image size with and without applying the warp slider. Naturally the more extreme the spherical or cylindrical proportioning of the merged pano the more impact the warping has on the final proportions.

    I went to Sunset Cliffs last night (san diego). I was going to test the smooth reflection app but forgot about it until the light was almost gone. I will post my test shots later.

    First among equals.




    Forgot to mention, this was another test of the 'Smooth Reflections' in-camera app. If you've got static subject matter, and want entirely noiseless files, the app works wonders. Now, obviously stacking frames to reduce noise can be done later in pp software - think astrophotography - but the beauty of this tool is its ability to handle the stacking in camera. Moreover, the resulting composite image is a nice and malleable raw file! The only thing it can't do is align images before stacking - hence the need for a decent tripod - because this step would require more processing power than current cameras can muster.

    Apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere on this forum!

    The first one for me ! Without the underlining of the horizontal orange/yellow colored cloud, the right side becomes a little too heavy. May be a mix of the third and first ones would work too, but the first has already very mute/soft colors, so it may not add much. As is, I find the third a little too dark/saturated.
