    Canon EF-S 10-18 STM WORKS! at 10 mm on Fuill Frame Sony A7R

    I connected EF-S 10-18 STM to my Sony A7R using Ommite EF-NEX adapter expecting to use maybe the 18 mm range without too much vignetting. To my surprise, there is no significant vignetting at 10 mm !! I got excited and hooked up the 10-18 on my Canon 5D III using a 13 mm extension tube to...

    LG G4's camera. Answer to our prayers?

    My phone is on its last legs, and I have been holding out for a new phone with a "decent" camera. Is LG G4 with f/1.8 lens, full manual control, and some sort of technology for better color reproduction the answer to my wishes? Obviously the sample photos were taken by a pro and post-processed...

    Nissin i40 Speedlite for Sony A7r

    Finally, a powerful enough TTL speedlight in a matching size for Sony A7r (and all newer Sony's). The Canon version should be great for some of the smaller bodies or EOS M series. EOSE2892 by drjlo1, on Flickr 5DIII vs. A7r by drjlo1, on Flickr

    Canon EOS to Sony E (Full Frame) Smart Adapters. Master List and Impressions.

    After much research, I bought the Commlite adapter, but other users' input regarding others would be appreciated. ----------------- The current EF to FE adapter situation is very mirky. I would like an adapter with better AF speed than ones on the market right now, even Metabones III, now IV...

    EOS M3 24 MP Sensor? EOS M3 may arrive with a 24 MP sensor, and since it may be unlikely that Canon has developed both the 20 MP sensor (7D II) and yet another new sensor at 24 MP, could this be the ubiquitous Sony 24 MP sensor? If so...

    Samsung NX400 with NX1 BSI sensor Smaller body NX400 with the NX1 BSI sensor, around $900 with kit lens. If true as rumored, that will be my next camera purchase to supplement my 5D III, seeing how nothing similar is coming forth from Canon :'(

    Magic Lantern screws up EXIF data for Exp comp? 5D III

    Since installing Magic Lantern 1.2.3 on 5D III, I have noticed that my files shot at 0 EV exposure comp are wrongly tagged as either +1/3 EV (seen in Digital Photo Professional) or "+1 Step" (in Windows Explorer window, flickr). Files shot with +1/3 EV are wrongly tagged as +1/2 EV (DPP) and...

    Sony Zeiss Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Lens, very Close to Otus 55mm per DXO

    Anybody using the Sony/Zeiss FE 55mm lens yet? DXO testing shows results very close to the Otus 55 mm, in fact second best for any lens behind Otus and the best audiofocus lens DXO has every tested. I should receive one soon along with A7R; I just hope all the ergonomic issues, Sony-specific...

    Sony A7/R "Bundle Deal" up to $650 Off

    Sony A7/R and lens sales must not be great, as Sony started a "Bundle Sale," with $200 off body+one lens and $650 off body+one lens+F60M flash. Be aware, the F60M flash is riddled with overheating problems which Sony will not own up to, but $99 for a $600 flash may be worth it for those not...

    New Rogue Safari flash-booster. Please e-mail Rogue to make a larger version.

    I just received a newsletter about Rogue's "Safari" flash-booster. Looks great and appears better built than the "Better Beamer," but it is only meant for pop-up flashes. I have already e-mailed Rogue to request a version for regular flashes and would like to encourage others to request the...

    Ultra portable light stand options/alternatives? Smaller than Manfrotto Nano

    I have come to the conclusion that I simply am not motivated enough to carry traditional light-stands when I'm asked to "take some photos" as a favor to acquaintances at things like baby birthdays, social gatherings, etc. I have some traditional "portable" softboxes and even a lumodi beauty...

    Canon 24-70 f2.8 II. How much AFMA does your copy need? What's acceptable?

    My copy of 24-70 f/2.8 II needs -9 at wide end and 0 at tele end on my 5D III. My Canon 70-200 f/2.8 II needs 0 at either end, and my 100L also needs 0. Some of my fast primes including 35L, 50L, 85L II range between -1 and -3. A brand new Canon 17-40 f/4L I just borrowed needed -6 at wide...
