Cleaning a99 Mark II (translucent mirror)

I was cleaning my sensor the other day and after the third attempt at removing what appeared to be an ugly smudge in the middle of the sensor, I realized the offending dust was probably on the mirror. SLRs and mirrorless cameras don't have this problem, but the SLT line of Sony cameras has a translucent mirror that doesn't move during the...

New lens

Hi everyone. I have a Sony a7ii and am looking for a zoom lens. My local camera store have me in a dilemma;

Sony Zeiss 24-70 f4
Canon 24-70 f4 with Sigma mc-11 adaptor.

I tried both, the Zeiss is slightly faster but the Canon looked good. Reviews say maybe the Canon is sharper.

Does anyone have experience...

Sony A7 Tethering


I am interested in shooting tethered with the Sony A7 and I have tried a few different options but not extensively and I might have missed some setting.

What I want to do is to use the display of the camera to review the images while I am shooting, and at the same time send low res jpeg to my windows 10 tablet to look at and...

35mm f/2.8 or 28mm f/2?

Currently as of right now, I am seeking anyone in this group who might have some portrait sample shots from either of these lenses in their No edited format. I'm curious if anyone has any experience with either of these lenses as well and can tell me the Pros and Cons of owning one over the other. Right now I am leaning towards the 28mm f/2 for...

"Harmony" / Sony a7ii / Samyang 85mm 1.4

I shot this photo of a good friend and her little boy over the weekend. This was supposed to be a wedding dress photo, but when she went to put her dress on she was devastated to find that it would no longer fit. I told her not to feel bed, that kind of thing happens after you have a kid. So I offered to do a family session and make the best of...
