Jordan:I wanted to test out my A7s while shooting something more legitimate than home videos so I used it for this trailer called The Drone which I directed and released this past week. Thought you might want to pass it on. The first shot (crane) was stock footage, but everything else was in camera on the A7s:
Here’s some press about it:

PlayMemories Camera Apps “Time-lapse” & “Angle Shift Add-on”

Sony RX1 – Maintaining its Relevance (SonyAlphaForum).
Sony FE 28mm f/2 Lens Review w/ Both Conversion Lenses (Youtube).
Moving to Mirrorless (Apertureaddict).

Andre:Completely shot on the Sony FS700.

Sean:I just saw a sponsored ad on Facebook for an article in The Verge about the Co-founders of VSCO and I noticed that one uses a Rollei TLR and the other uses a Sony A7. I remember when vsco first came out I sent them email after email asking them to support Sony cameras and it took them forever to do it. So it’s truly a sign of the A7 series’ popularity that the guy running the company now uses one.

Jeffrey:Filmed Bar11’s infamous Summer Solstice Rain Party in Pittsburgh, PA last week with my a7S in it’s brand new Meikon waterproof housing.  They turn on sprinklers, and it rains INSIDE the bar all night so we got soaked, but the waterproofing worked great and (of course) the camera performed brilliantly in the low light.  Watch in HD for maximum enjoyment.  Hope you like it!

Peter:Sharing this video/timelapse that I shot in Tasmania with the Sony A7S and 16-35mm FE.  Now is probably a good time to grab bargains on used A7S at half the price of a new Sony A7R ii.

Alex:It is a sedcard video i made for a friend and i shot it exclusively on my a6000 and a7.

Images of the first Minolta Vectis V-Mount to E-mount adapter.

SAR reader John sent me these pictures and the following text:

This is my Minolta Vectis V-Mount APS film camera lens to Sony E-Mount adapter, you got exif, aperture control and manual focus with this adapter. Those lenses are fully electronically, including  electronic focus ring and electronic aperture.
The picture attached shows V17mm f3.5 and V400mm f8 reflex attached on A7.
I made this for fun, currently it’s not for sale.

I spoke a bit of John and if there is some interest in such an adapter he may could make some of them for our readers. So let me know if you are interested to get some of those!

Good news: Sigma to ship the 24-105mm A-mount lens in late July!


Sigma just sent this email to confirm the new A-mount 24-105mm lens will finally ship!

If you are receiving this e-mail, it is because you have previously inquired about the availability of the 24-105mm for Sony cameras. After a very long wait, I can confirm that they will finally be available this month. We are expecting to get a shipment of them next week that will fulfill over 70% of our backorders. Hopefully the rest will be fulfilled within the month.

Thanks Stu!
