    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    In the nature of being solution oriented and maybe compromise how about all of the main brand "Fun with..." (i.e. this Fun with Sony____ ) threads become a sticky post and it will never go away and people can choose whether or not to post their images here as well as whatever the "flavor of the month" camera model "Fun with..." thread. Everyone is happy. The main "Fun with..." thread never goes to page 10 and people will be able to do their research or viewing of image examples from whatever camera they want. That can be a forum wide thing though. I know there are search features and they help in most cases but I agree that if I wanted to say only look at A7/r stuff then going through 122 pages would be a bit much for me as I generally wouldn't care after a certain point.

    Great job all around though from the owners/ mods so I don't want this to seem like anyone is poking and pointing fingers. This is probably the only photography forum I visit on a regular basis and that's for a great reason.

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

    Guess i will start this but with a twist a image that is actually being used for a ad. I shot this one with the A7r, 70-200 2.8 ZA lens with Sony 4 adapter in crop mode so a 300mm equivalent . ISO 1250 at 5.6/ Focused on the girl in the middle. BTW I designed the ad too.

    Hi Jack
    I think that's fine - there'll be a new thread for a new camera while it's new. . . . . as it dies then people using that camera will start posting to the Generic thread (this one in that case).
    No work for you - easy to search, and a way forwards for when a thread gets to page 10.

    All the best

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    While we're at it, I have a suggestion: allowing image threads to have the same number of posts per page as mainly text threads means that the pages take for ever to load. Is there any way of specifying the 'fun with' threads to have a lower message count per page? Would anyone find that useful?

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Something for my fellow gear junkies...

    I've been reacquiring samples of the camera gear I grew up with and assembling a little diorama. It's a timeline of my own path as a photographer, starting in 1968 with a borrowed Argus C3 through the Canon A-1 from 1978. My favorite artifact is the little green book 'Amateur Photography' that I originally got at Radio Shack for 50. I learned the basics of shooting and darkroom work from that book, and have been hooked ever since.

    Shot with a7R, 24-70mm zoom at f8.

    Tim you can set that up yourself in your User CP top left corner. Hit that got to settings and options than too edit options. You will see thread display options and can select how many posts in a thread . You select from 10 to 100. Try it

    Take an old lens with great rendition, stop it down very slightly when shooting into the light, process in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 with two layers, one with XP2 rendition and the other with Tri-X rendition and mix them well in a shallow bowl spicing with occasional dodge and burn. Add a pinch of vignette to taste. Cook and eat.

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    A7 + FE 24-70: The more I look at it, the more I like it.

    I stopped looking at the corners and the distortion and started taking pictures. I even dropped the idea of getting multiple copies of the lens and trying to cherry pick a "good one".

    What a versatile combo - ability to shoot handheld at 1/5 second / ISO 4000 and still get a decent output, can't ask for more. I am sure that someone with more PP skills can improve these even more.

    I had that same love for the A-1. The Sony a7R is the first camera I've had since then that feel so 'right'. (coincidentally, they have oddly similar shapes and layouts)

    You know what was one of the main things that pushed me over the edge? Seeing a picture of the A7r next to the A1. Finally a camera the correct size for an SLR!

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Guy I thought for sure you'd name this Fun with Sony and cheesburgers!

    Here's some sample A7r images from Valley of Fire

    Had to craw into this area to get that looks like miniature cliff dwellings. A7r, FE35mm f/6.3 1/160 ISO 125



    Finishing a hike out to where they filmed "The Professionals". A7r, FE35mm f/2.8, 1/125 ISO 50



    Rokinon FE14mm 1/40 ISO 50 more than likely f/8



    One more Rokinon FE14mm 1/40 ISO 50

    I was never very fond of the A-1 (or most Canons, frankly) but it's about the same size as my favorite Nikon FM/FM2n/FE2 and a little smaller than the F/F2/F3. I never liked any of the pro-line Nikon SLRs when they passed the F3 ... they always felt bloated and over-much to me.

    And while the A7 is not that much smaller than the Leicaflex SL, it is probably a quarter the weight. I thought the Nikon F with meter head was a brick ...! :-) But I love the Leicaflex SL too.

    Quickies from this morning ...





    both: Sony A7 + M-Rokkor 40mm f/2, f/2.8

    The full-frame photo at the top takes +45 on the vignetting correction in Lens Corrections (LR5.3) to even out the corner illumination at f/2.8. Shooting just a little bit with the M-Rokkor 40, I think it's a much nicer match to the A7 than the Nokton 40 so far. Focusing seems crisper, handling is better, etc.

    enjoy!

    The whole collection of FD lenses seem to work very well on my A7R too. The 20mm f/2.8 is very nice indeed!

    Man that is a virtual playground for colorful art. Very cool
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Re: Fun with the Sony A7 and A7r series

    Yeah, Guy, in Holland we wouldn't dare this. We are to Calvinistic, but not in Italy where life seems to be one big Opera.
    I'll hope to get back there, with the 18mm C/Y Zeiss, before we leave tommorow although we have a full schedule, there is so much to see around here it is mind boggeling.

    Those are some fantastic night shots! Could you share your workflow on how you post processed them? : )

    Everyone you folks are making this kit sing! Kudos!

    Jono, great shots did you have to try a bunch of 24-70s to get the "really, really good one" or did you score one the first time out of the box?

    Thank you Marc

    Actually - those are from the 28-70 - my 24-70 should be coming next week (together with the 55)........

    But my cheapo 28-70 IS really excellent - it's sharp right out to the corners on both sides right from 28 f3.5 up to 70 f5.6. Whether it would seem so good on the A7r I don't know (because I don't have one!).

    all the best

    Re: Fun With Sony _____

    Thanks Rurouni. I shoot RAW with exposure set to +0.7 or +1.0.

    Attached are the typical LightRoom settings I used for A7's night shots. Minimal luminance NR if needed. Note that there is a lot of room to further improve the tone and highlights (I am lazy so I left it at that).

    Export for screen, sharpness high.
