    I know these buildings Bart Not that I am living in one of them.

    On the way to my framemaker in the north of Amsterdam I ran into this beautiful old school building from around 1930. (Always bring your camera)

    Some more examples from my love affair with photography and the lovely A7 as the tool of choice. The first shot was taken with the 58/2 Biotar. The next three with the Yashica ML 50/1.7 and the last three with the Tamron 17a Adaptall 35-70mm f/3.5.

    I've had good luck with the Wasabi batteries sold from Amazon.com. $29 for two batteries and a charger.

    Tareq,

    I don't recommend buying other than the OEM Lithium-Ion batteries for any camera. The battery for the a7/a7R is a $39 item from B&H. Lithium-Ion batteries are nasty little devils and I don't trust any advertised on eBay unless OEM from a reputable retailer. YMMV.

    I saw that, another member from another site linked me to that, but i was thinking more about original or say OEM one than 3rd party even it is very good excellent product.

    And that is why i asked this question, i was looking for only OEM battery, i placed that on B&H 1 week ago, but i didn't pull the trigger to buy yet as i have other items to fill and also waiting for budget, now the budget is available and the items i want to buy are also filled, but still i don't want to go with more than 1 battery yet for that price, and if you are telling me that those ads on eBay are mostly spams then i prefer to avoid, even they are so cheap but i better save it for OEM Genuine one than cheaper more quantity and not sure they are genuine ones.

    I may go with one from B&H now, and later i save more and buy another 1 or 2 if needed, i am planning to buy more SD cards which i have only one new i bought, so later i want to buy more than i can think to buy one more battery, just i hope i don't regret i passed those cheap choices on eBay if they work flawlessly as well, and even that of Wasabi sounds working perfectly i still don't want to buy 3rd party or non-OEM batteries.

    I have two OEM batteries and two Wasabi. I've been testing them, comparing their charge longevity and such. They are identical, far as I can tell. It's up to you to spend nearly 3x as much for Sony branded batteries if that's what makes you comfortable, never mind the 'free' charger thrown in. I understand the comfort issue.. Sometimes it's worth it. I don't think it is in this case, but that's me.

    I was being a bit 'touristy' in my own home town today and was at Wellington Arch in the centre of Hyde Park Corner in time to see the daily procession of the Household Cavalry, in this case the Life Guards, through the arch.

    All A7+FE 35/2.8







    This is detail from the frame above - I didn't know the 35/2.8 could do portraits!

    I have to point out that the reason I bought the Wasabi batts was that I had two OEM batteries and the Sony battery charger was back-ordered. I think it's idiotic of them to supply the camera with only a power supply to charge batteries (very very slowly) in the camera. I was fishing about for a cheap battery charger, they're usually about $10, so I could charge my batteries. I found that the Wasabi batteries at $30 came with a charger, so I figured "$20 for two batteries? good deal, I'll give them a try..."

    Of course, buying the Wasabis meant that my backordered Sony charger arrived a day later. The Sony charger is nicer ... but it does exactly the same job.

    Such it is. ;-)

    +1. Never had an issue with Wasabi batteries. First used them on my Nex-7 - they last as long or in some cases longer than the Sony OEMs.

    A few more from the Tamron Adaptall 17a. It is a wonderfully compact 35-70mm 3.5 with a great built in macro function. All of the shots here were taken with just the lens, no tubes or close up filters. It isnt true macro but works well in pinch. Hope you enjoy.

    Knowing how volatile and dangerous lithium-ion batteries can be (there is a very very good reason why they are scrutinized by transportation companies) I buy nothing but OEM batteries and chargers. Any saving or convenience is never worth a chance that safety of my family, me, and those around me, will be reduced / endangered. I don't gamble with that.

    That's about ten degrees more paranoid than I can muster, on a scale of seven.

    One doesn't need to research a lot to find out there is absolutely nothing paranoid when it comes to treating lithium ion batteries with due respect. Taking shortcuts on safety to save $20-ish? I'm sorry, but that makes absolutely no sense to me. Those to which $20-ish makes that much difference don't have thousands of dollars worth in camera and lenses in same bag. And those that do have thousands of dollars in camera and lenses make absolutely no sense to me when they look at non-OEM batteries and chargers, especially if motivator is to save few bucks.

    I'm not trolling but I assume you know that the batteries you buy from the camera manufacturer are produced for them by an OEM manufacturer?

    I wouldn't be surprised if any of the third party batteries on sale are actually from the same manufacturer as the camera branded ones.

    Personally, I purchase OEM batteries from ExPro. I've used them in my RX1, A7, both my DPxMs and my Ricoh GR.

    I haven't been hit by exploding camera shrapnel, yet.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    The new Boeing 787 has a quite warm floor location near the toilet block. I know this because I pad around in socks to avoid DVT on long flights. I wonder if they are the Li-ion batteries under the floor. The literature suggests they are. Useful if you get cold feet though.

    I've been using generic batteries since the nex-5. I'm glad Sony didn't luck out non oem batteries on the a7.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Well, thanks about that batteries issue.

    I placed an order on one battery i think of OEM from B&H, doesn't matter how OEM it is, also i asked that because i don't like ordering from Amazon, they have idiot/stupid rules for shipping to my country, so i must ship to a private address in one of 3 countries [USA, UK, China], then from there they send to my country, very long time and also not cheap at long run at all, so i only have B&H[and similar such as Adorama] or eBay, and eBay shipping time is also long sometimes [10 days up to 3 weeks]

    Thanks for looking, comments always appreciated.

    I've been off the thread for a few days but catching up this image really stands out for such incredible control of tonality. It's just a pleasure to look at. I'm sure the print will be unbelievable.

    Thanks Ben! I'm holding off printing it until I reload the Photo Blavk ink and use some Exhibition Fiber or similar paper for this one. I'll test on my usual matte papers, but I think the flat surface will kill the sparkle in it.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Here are a few from today's first trip of the year to the loveliest bluebell wood I know. I shot them on the A7R and the 24-70 and 55 F1.8 and was able to check them on the spot on my new Surface Pro, which I love and hate by turns. But at least there's now a machine that is small and light for hiking and travel but runs full lightroom, or behaves like a tablet when required.

    Have you tried Hahnemühle PhotoRag Bright White?

    I suppose you are on an 3800/3880, BW printed with the ABW Driver on this paper works excellent with very good blacks and a sparkling white and an outstanding overall tonality..

    Hi Tim,

    What do you love and hate on the Surface Pro so far in short? I am curious!

    Lovely images!

    Tim, nice shots!

    For my taste your new borders are to wide posted here and i would not show the filename.

    No Windows for me , but having full LR is nice on a tablet for sure...

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    This third one stands out, it is my favorite of the lot.

    Interesting that Surface Pro : I'd be glad to hear more about your experiences with it, which model and and why you chose it. I need something for this summer and I'm hesitating.. But I think I will rather get a laptop in order to get a) enough power and b) a good enough display which can be somewhat calibrated and a little more trustful for tones and colors.
