    Under what conditions and settings did you find you had issues with the A6000 in low light? Unfortunately people just assume a DSLR approach to them and this doesn't always work.

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Focussing at the taking aperture has an advantage with focus shift issues, obviously stopping down reduces focus shift, but you have to stop down a fair bit, it is in those middle ranges where...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Depends what kind of tracking really, but due to compression objects moving toward or away from the camera 'appear' to do so more slowly than a short FL lens at a much closer distance. Add that the...

    It's better. It may not be able to claim 'world's fastest under xzy scenario blah blah', but it has far better control logic which was sorely lacking on my A6000.

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Sorry no. Sony creates a set of features on the body, they don't make the adapters or how they 'translate'. It is up to the manufacturer of the adapter to make their adapter work properly. Rishi...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Yes because all other brands work so well with all other lenses? And Canon / Nikon are so very renowned for their firmware updates...

    It isn't Sony's job nor intention to make their cameras 100%...

    'The a7S did focus in lower light than anything we've ever tested, but it would take forever, slowly hunting before actually nailing it in very dim conditions.'

    I have always wondered what...

    As a side note, shouldn't that be in the text rather than a blanket 'those focus modes are not available to adapted lenses'?

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    I had the same issues with advanced mode on the older cameras, simply will not lock focus, but does enable other features. That's quite interesting at least those options open up, I wonder it this...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Every camera seems to get loads of coverage. Sony release more cameras than anyone else (not because they upgrade every two seconds like people seem to believe, but because they compete and bring...

    Sorry I meant a video captured in camera. An external video would either show or not show the overlays depending on settings.

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    So I guess anything other than a 1DX or D4S is 'nerd' stuff?

    And yes, this does seem to be more capable of subject tracking (not to be confused with AF-C) than a 1DX. Whether that means more...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    Rishi, can you please test the Metabones in both 'green' mode and 'advanced' mode? They are functionally quite different as far as the camera is concerned and may offer different focus modes to be...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    I completely agree that this 'may' have been possible with the A6000, however there may very well have been some usability limitations that Sony didn't want to have on a mass market consumer grade...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    I think this test clearly shows how one can use the camera for focus-recompose and some additional movement from the operator and or model. It isn't a 'sports' test of someone continuously running....

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    @ Rishi - It 'might' simulate an LA-EA3 but there are other reasons to believe it actually doesn't, in that there are things the Metabones can do that the Sony cannot (such as auto VF magnification...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    I would think that the faster readout speed and reducing rolling shutter would have a bigger impact on either camera moving or subject moving.

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    @ Rishi - My understanding is that the focus assist lamps on flash units are 'near IR' (as you say IR beam) but as you know sensors have IR filtering on them, so the sensor cannot see that beam of...

  • Commented on Sony: An eye on focus article

    They couldn't put an SD card in. Besides a video won't show the focus points for obvious reasons.
