Here's a look at our latest video showing off the inexpensive Sigma 19mm F2.8 Lens on the Sony A5100, not bad for an under $200.

Sony A7 Full Frame Vs Crop Frame in Video mode and more

I was curious wether there was any difference shooting 1080P video on the A7 in Crop mode Vs Full Frame Mode so shot this video. I'll let you guys decide what you think. I shot the entire video using a modified Sigma 60mm F2.8 Art Lens. I shot wide open and at 1/50 shutter speed. After comparing Full Frame to Crop Mode I then grabbed a Vivitar .43 Wide Angle Adapter and screwed it onto the end of the lens and compared again. The video with this adapter is remarkably good. Again I'll let you make your own decision of course.

Canon 35mm F3.5 FD Lens adapted for use on the Sony A7

Another foray into the Vintage Vault. This time a Canon 35mm F3.5 FD Lens adapted to use on the Sony A7 Full Frame Camera. Shot at F11 to avoid any depth of field issues. Perhaps another day I'll shoot it wide open so you can checkout the Bokeh :-) Sound is done via the Rode SmartLav+ plugged into an adapter then directly into the Sony A7's Mic input. This same adaptr will allow me to plug my iRig Pre into it then into the Sony A7 allowing me to use XLR microphones including those requiring upto 48 Volt Phantom Power like the Audio Technica AT2020 so keep an eye out for that on an upcoming segment.
