A7 images, any lens

Post your A7 images, any lens--FE or adapted legacy lenses.
Feel free to add comments about the lens, the image, or the A7's delights & quirks. (Bonus points for refraining from mere irritability.)

I'll start it off with a few FE 55 1.8 images:

A7II and really like the camera. Never really understand what most of the complaints about these Sonys is really about. Only using adapted lenses - M-mount and Nikon F. Obviously many M-mounts just don't play well but there are enough that do. Really only carry 3 lenses with this camera - VC 15mm v3, Leica 28mm Elmarit v3 & Zeiss 50mm C-Sonnar - I find all of them superb. I also mostly shot with -2EV permanently dialled in and adjust in post.

thank you very much Robert, very kind and very interesting the words 'movie image makers'. Not knowledgeable in theories I try to understand that, wonder if most of Craigs and my photos less emphasizing 'graphics' but 'humans' or being documentary has relevance?

now mostly gauging the performance / usability of my 3 CV wide angles, the 4.5/15, 4/21 and 4/25 resp. how I cope with such wide angels

Sorry, Andreas, autocorrect struck again. "Movie" was inserted by the computer imp. I'm not trying to turn you or Crayg into videographers and will edit that mistake.

However, for me, the A7's audio inputs + wifi server capability persuaded me to accept an invitation from a videostream app inventor/ceo--an invitation based oddly enough on my photographs on Tumblr; video was not in my plans or interests! In the past month, I've posted 17 short videos (30secs tops) made in the field, transferred to my iPad, processed/uploaded at wifi cafes or in the evening at home. Some have had thousands of views (in comparison, my rff gallery images average maybe 30 views) and I have 1100 'followers.'

I'm enjoying that process most unexpectedly. The A7 built-in mics are so-so, but if one is willing to enlarge the rig slightly, one can hook up good shotgun mics/booms and get great stereo audio. I already own mics and stands for music recording, so I'm about to incorporate a Tascam digital audio processor that fits between the A7 and the tripod.

I have *no* cinematic aspiration, but 12-30sec videos offer the chance to create the visual equivalent of tanka, haiku, epigrams, and post them in environments where they might be seen by thousands. Little video projects shot alongside A7 photographs certainly have preoccupied me happily for the past month.

haha, ok Robert, your computer, when being told image, is thinking movie. remarkable
Certainly you make me curious again: How about sharing a link to your videos? Tascam sounds processor sounds very professional. Shooting from a tripod, or steady cam or 'free hand'?

abt. 9 years ago I noticed that video cams had become cheap and small ( relatively, now they are smaller and cheaper again ) and thought to fulfil the teenage dream of making videos. Bought a Panasonic GS 400, made some videos and soon started to take more and more still photos: That was the beginning of me plunging into photography! I have a few quite good mics, a self made preamp and a shock mount. hopefully I get inspired to give it another try!

Andreas, I have the Tascam DR70: built-in stereo mic (much better than the A7's), 4 XLR inputs/level knobs, audio I/O, assignable limiters/Low pass filters, slate tone, led menus with a Q wheel (but not complicated). It's skinnier than the DP60, which has 2 xlrs, and not much more expensive. Runs on 4 AA (I use rechargeables) and requires its own SD card.

I started with free hand stuff, but am relying on a tripod now in order to keep the camera still while the movement occurs in front of it. The juxtaposition of stillness and movement is effective for illustrating the paradoxes and conundrums in the proverbs of Antonio Porchia (the main current project).

I think it would be great for separating the various audio streams of a street scene if you don't mind wrangling multiple mics/stands & long cords. Right now I'm working more remotely, so it's about (for example) miking a river current to the left, a cricket to the right, and managing levels so the the cricket isn't drowned out, so to speak.

The videos are here: http://vibbidi.com/users/681572898800833

Vibbidi is an app. If it interests you but you can't get it publicly yet, you can email Kazuhiro Naya the developer for an invitation. (He invited me based on my Tumblr photos, not my nonexistent videography. I think he would love to have more street/documentary photographers.

( cut the quote to have less text in this thread that better is about photos )

Your sound set up sounds great! Mine is much more basic, based on mini stereo only, various ok mics that go into the A7 and a standalone sound recorder, the basic Zoom H1 which actually has disappointed me. Good quality sound is essential, but isolation from wind and onboard noise is important first, the rest, in comparison, are nuances or in other words, if used right even my set up should be ok.

Just saw a few of your videos. Very impressive Robert, playlike, thoughtful, they transpire depth and calm beauty, very inspiring! I wanted to view all but each 30 sec. video took about 5 minutes to view in small portions, so I gave up. Wonder why this is so, connection isn't great here but e.g. youtube, live TV and alike can be viewed much easier. Sound, music used is very good and important, e.g by the group 'Oregon' ( no legal issues? may later delete this ). The site looks alright to me, I am curious about the app.

Last of your videos up now must be you and your dog Mimi right? Also a bit personal, if one sees it like that, my hotel room in Hanoi these last days, Canon LTM 1.8/35

Same issue with the videos. The app doesn't seem to handle bandwidth efficiently. We have only AT&T DSL available here, and it is slow. I'll take a look at the office later where we have much faster DSL.

I liked what I saw, though. Never really thought of this kind of short video "poem." Great concept!

rhl-oregon, what adapter are you using for that Contax G 45/2? That's an all-time favorite of mine; it would be nice to get to use it again. I see that there are AF adapters out there now, but people seem to be having problems with them, especially on the 45...

I'm using the Metabones, Robert, and I like having that big twist action. Not fast, but I'm not fast either. The magnified view permits consistent f2 results. (I also have a Metabones G for Fuji, which gives me exceptional 42/2.8 and 135/2.8 options.)

Just be sure the lens is properly locked in when mounted. It's always a long fall for glass when hard surfaces are involved at the other end.

I've had two A7's and I'm now on an A7S, which is wonderful. Being free from worrying about light levels is liberating.
Right now I've only got a 50/1.4 and 20/2.8 AIS adapted to it.

both are A7S, 20/2.8 AIS


Olympus Pen 38/1.8 on A7. You pretty much have to shoot 16:9 or 1:1 to avoid crazy vignetting, but it works.

I have been looking at Jupiter 12 stuff, it looks like it would be a fun, cheap, compact lens for the A7(S). Thoughts?

Posibly one of the worst performers on the A7.
I tried on my A7II and it wignetes pretty much at any distance.

From the (few) pictures I've seen on flickr, I like the toy camera look, and it would probably perform better on the 7S' sensor (like most RF wides do) anyways.

Chris, I enjoy the J12/A7, as you may have noticed in one of the images above (industrial laundry on a loading dock). Here are a few more at ISO 100 in daylight.

Yes, it's compact, though I attach a filter &/or hood to permit easier manipulation of aperture. As for vignetting, judge for yourself. I have a good J12, bought here; if you are as lucky, or thorough in your research, you should get one whose results you like.

Andreas, wonderful how the Bo-tree shrine exists in such walled-up working urban gray grit. Buddha really is there.

And the elevator self with others is fun. The guy to your far right was certainly studying your method or madness. ;-)

much like your recent uploads Robert for looking playful and light as if a bit random, formal rules strong but behind

this is a particularly old and big looking tree, and areas in Saigon that look unchanged since a few decades like this one are getting rare. It had been a surprise discovery, not far from where I stay, adjoining to an old market area
