    A7RM2 DRO Bracketing

    I have Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) set to auto most of the time on my A7RM2. I have found it to be helpful in difficult lighting - but it tends to be very conservative in application. You can...

    I have the Sony SEL30M35 Macro lens which I use on my A6000 to photograph orchid flowers. This lens works well, but I would like to have a macro lens that lets me shoot from farther away from the...

    Jay:

    Thanks. I use DxO Optics Pro and LR (not CC) for my work. My question is whether I really need to do a lot of post-processing of RAW for my A6000. I shoot JPG + RAW, but the RAW is...

    Full Frame vs. APS Crop

    This post is about the A6000 vs. the (full frame) A7r II but I wanted to post in the full-frame forum because I think it will generate more interest there. I own the A6000 but have been reading...

    The reviewer was doing a lot of "pixel peeping" - but on a high resolution camera like the a7r, that is probably inevitable. I think the market for these cameras - such as the Nikon 800 and the new...

    Macro Lenses Magnification Factors

    I have the E30 Macro lens for my A6000 and haven't been completely happy. I think I would be happier with a 60mm or even a 90mm macro lens. (I had a Canon EFS 60 mm macro that I liked.) Is there a...
