Rafael:Hello, I’ve been working with film and photography for almost 20 years and I’m shooting a feature documentary with an A7II and an A7S. You can see the footage from the research phase right here: https://vimeo.com/154487628
I actually wanted to see if you guys could post this on your website because I’ve just started my campaign for an extremely important project on intolerance in Brazil called “Some kind of hatred”. Brazil was always associated with heartwarming, welcoming people, but progressively this great nation is becoming scarred but acts of incredible intolerance and hatred. I’ve left Brazil when I was 11 years old and I came back 23 years later only to find a country I no longer recognize. This is a documentary that Brazil desperately needs! Please take 5 minutes to read about it in our campaign page: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/some-kind-of-hatred/x/13352131#/

First Commlite Nikon F autofocus adapter review

Commlite Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Autofocus adapter on eBay (Click here).

SAR reader Thomas (tommyphotography.com) posted a detailed Commlite Nikon F autofocus adapter review. And the conclusion isn’t that favorable:

As much I appreciate Commlites efforts to do a Nikon F to Sony E adapter they really have much work to do. They may be on the right path, but the current version of the AF adapter is not really useable in my opinion (maybe it’s a faulty copy?). The build quality is good, but has its flaws (Tamron 24-70 only mountable with detached tripod plate). Only two out of four lenses worked, and one of them had some bigger issues. Nonetheless I had a bit of fun using the two 24-70 lenses on the A7 Mark II. I do not know which firmware version was installed on mine, but I assume it is the latest as I got the adapter very late after several delays.
