I would strongly suggest that you try the filter out before you buy it. $120 is a lot of money for a filter and the reviews of it online seems very inconclusive. "Thephoblographer's" review of it is largely positive, while others are really neagive. I don't think we at photo.SE can help you much in this case, the best would be to try it out yourself.


You could probably use a radio shutter remote that has a connector which matches the one for a (wired) cable release for the RX-100III. I believe it's the same one that the Sony A7 uses. Unlike an IR remote, you'll have two units: a receiver that you hook into the camera's shutter release port with a small cable, and then a small transmitter you'll have in ...


According to the spec sheet, the DSC-RX100 has a wired remote shutter release. The official accessory that uses it is the RM-VPR1. It is however wired rather than wireless as far as I can tell.


You are in the UK. Under the Property Misdescriptions Act 1991 any false or misleading statement whether made by words or pictures is not legal. A photograph which makes a room look larger than it is, might not be false, but it is misleading. Someone could sue, and it has happened before. I would not go below 35mm. ...


It depends if you want to kill your camera. I wouldn't trust the bags, particularly the cheap ones. Fairly reliable ones might work, but they are harder to reliably test since they rely on zippers and velcro rather than o-rings and pressure seals. They are more designed more to protect against surface usage where the camera may get splashed or fall on the ...


Actually instead of holding the apeture lever or using an aftermarket adapter you can use your DOF preview button or live view when the lens is connected properly. Then without shutting the camera off, pop the lens off and your apeture should stay where you had it set while it was connected properly. Much easier and I have used this trick with a d3100, ...


No: I love my NEX 5T. The kit lens, and the additional 16mm f/2.8 I purchased, are both unremarkable, (I really mean, they are terrible,) but I have a lot of fun, and have had some success, using an old Canon 50mm f/1.8 and and old Sigma 28mm f/2.8 with an adapter. The beauty of the NEX is that with a little practice you can get good results with manual ...


You might check B&H or Adorama for a new or used 55mm Micro Nikkor. They're usually available for less than $400 new or under $200 used. It's a manual focus lens, which should work fine for your use, and is tack sharp. Here's some good info:


There are various general considerations when buying a macro lens. What is compatible with my camera? Nikon's macro lenses include the word Micro in their name and their current line up can be found here. From those you would need an AF-S lens or you will not be able to use autofocus. What level of magnification are you looking achieve? The smaller the ...


While there are very large studio camera stands available (Foba makes several, and Manfrotto serves the lighter end of the market), none of the commercially-available stands will fit your specs (and the closest fit is about $5K). But there's not a lot to building one unless you're overly concerned with super-smooth adjustments. A studio stand consists of a ...
