    USB to Audio Jack?

    I second this. There's no camera I know of that supports USB audio. What camera did you order?
  2. historicalpoultry

    I need some help.

    Does your phone shoot 1080p 60p? Otherwise I can think of an older Gopro

    What IS this MOUNT!?

    Might as well be Sony/Minolta A-mount. They used to have screw drive autofocus too.

    Light reflecting off a camera sensor?

    There has been many incidents of this ranging from all kind of cameras. I remember there being "issues" on the original A7 from Sony and older x trans sensors as well. I would say that it is in fact most likey the filter stack in front of the sensor. What lens were you using? Maybe using adapted lenses that aren't optimised for the angle of incident of mirrorless cameras can produce a stronger effect. Just guessing here though. Besides all this: I doubt you will have any issues when shooting under normal conditions. I'm assuming here that you're not really shooting such bright lights at the exact right angle all that often I bet I could achieve similar results with my x-h1 if I tried. But do I worry about it ever ruining a picture? Not really Cheers

    sigma 18 - 35 f 1.8 for sony A6300

    no there is nothing that compares as far as I know, sorry. you'll need to bite the bullet and buy the sigma mc-11 a-mount to e-mount adapter. this one is less common than the ef to e-mount version. maybe there are some used you can get cheaper.

    Shadowplay Bitrate

    If you're not happy with the audio quality and there's no option to increase the bitrate, I'd suggest using another software to record your audio. Audacitiy maybe?

    Instant print cameras advice

    I can recommend the Fuji line of Instax Cameras. I got gifted one and colors look nice, as well as the film stock being less expensive than the Polaroids make it what I would recommend. Easy to use as well, pretty much just point at and shoot situation. I don't really use it often, but I've taken enough shots to say that they work great. There's different formats of film stock for the respective cameras, so keep that in mind.

    What is the Sony A6... Camera?

    Well, Sony recently released the a6400, which has a 180 degree flip out screen (i.e. "selfie screen"). All other Sony a6000-series cameras have a rotating screen that does not articulate the full 180 degrees, but rather about 45 degrees downwards and slightly more than 90 degrees upwards
  9. Hi, This is a question that just came to my mind: Can an App Developer (I'm speaking of mobile apps for IOS or Android) gift free downloads of their paid apps to say, friends or family, business partners etc. This might be a pretty dumb and/or obvious question, in my defense, I have zero experience with software development. It just popped in my mind and now the question is nagging me. I'm mainly wondering about it since I feel that mobile app platforms are more closed down than Computer OSs. Thx in advance

    Anamorphic Lenses

    What do you mean by a "typical lens"? If I remember correctly, SLR Magic make anomorphic converters for the Fujinon MK Cine Zooms.

    Sony NP-FW50 dummy battery, does this work?

    Hey These dummy batteries are basically just wires with the correct "plugs" at each end. They don't convert the voltage supplied from the power bank to the camera, therefore not making it possible to use the camera properly. My a6500 turned on, but as soon as I started shooting, it turn off and showed the message "battery exhausted". Straight USb to dummy battery doesn't work in this case. I don't have the a6500 anymore, but I can recommend this: With this you can use L-type batteries and connect the via a normal dc connector to a dummy battery. And it has some really neat features on top of that hope this helps

    Need a good Audio Recording app for IOS

    Hi there I've been doing some video recording recently and I've used my iPhone for audio recording with a lav and the voice memo app. The lav is really sensible though and I'd need some control over the gain as it clips easily. Ideally I'd like as many features as possible, the app doesn't have to be free, as I don't have the money to buy a dedicated recorder at the moment and the convenince of using my iPhone is something I appreciate. Thanks in advance!

    Guide to photographing the night sky and milky way

    Maybe another option for aps-c E-mount users would be the samyang 14mm 2.8 adapted via a speedbooster / focal reducer. I use the Nikon version with a Viltrox focal reducer and get great results for the price. I unfortunately don't have much time anymore to shoot the stars, but I managed the get this during the summer. This is probably the best shot I've taken of the milky way.

    Sony a6000 - Sony SELP18105G vs Sony SEL18135

    I've had the 18-105 G for about three quarters of a year and sold it for the 16-70 f4. Not something that I would recommend since there is huge variance in the quality of the 16-70 and the price is very high. I got mine for around 550 and was extremely lucky to get a version with good enough quality. I wasn't such a huge fan of the 18-105, not because of it's site but because of it's image quality. In my opinion, this is only partially suited for photography. I found contrast fairly low and sharpness at f4 lacking. I've never handled the 18-135 so I can't say anything about that lens form experience but I think it's a fairly good lens accoridng to what I've seen. Best thing for you to do would be to try them out a camera store and see for yourself. Cheers
  15. Hi there As the title suggest, I'm wondering about buying used camera gear in Amsterdam. Thing is, I'll be spendig a week there soon and I'm looking for some lenses or maybe a Fuji x-t2 or x-h1. The used market here in Switzerland can sometimes be great but at the moment there isn't around what I'm looking for. So, is the market big and can someone recommend good photo stores who sell good used gear? Thanks in advance guys
