Charlie, either on here or FM you mentioned a pouch that you could fit the a7riii and FE35 2.8 attached into for a minimalist setup. Can you remind me what pouch please as I can’t find the post now

Lowepro ILC Classic 50

Fit is a little snug, wrist strap ok, but not neck strap! Even the lens hood makes it more uncomfortable to put in, and I'de highly recommend removing the padding for best fit, in the case you want to keep on the L bracket the whole time. On a related not, I had the "fittest" crap bracket. Turns out, I really like it as a bottom plate only bracket. Wont use it for landscapes, but nice for my monopod and tripod at home.

Still use the bag on a daily basis, so it's rugged. The voigtlander 35 f1.4 classic should also fit, was using the older nokton with success. FE 28.... NO GO. Even 40STM adapted was too tight for comfort, so it's really restrictive bag, and it's great for it's purpose.


Sony A7rii/A7riii - FE 12-24/4 - FE 24-240 - FE 28/2 - FE 35/2.8 - FE 50/1.8 - FE 85/1.8 - EF 135/1.8 Art - F 600/5.6 - CZ 35-70, 100-300 - Astro Rok 14/2.8, 24/1.4 - Tamron 28-75 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 VC

Thanks Charliie, I have the Domke F-5XA as my small bag but I can fit the camera with lens attached and a second lens in that bag so I am looking for something much smaller for a camera and single lens. I dont own the 35 2.8 but im toying with the idea. I love my Fuji x100F but prefer the IQ from my sony. The built in flash on the fuji is whats making me want to keep it though, its so handy.

Anyways, that bag is only £14 from Amazon with free prime delivery so ill give it a go - Thanks!

EDIT - Forgot to say I dont keep the L bracket attached anymore and just keep it in my landscape bag. Instead I keep the capture clip 3 plate attached instead which doesnt add much size as its really slim

Are there any TTL flashes available for Sony that are smaller than the Nissin i70? Doesnt need to rotate, it would just be for fill flash in a pinch (if I could mimic a pop up flash I could let my fuji go)

Thanks for the sensor swab input guys.

Eddie, VSGO are the ones I used before I think.... I still have fluid left over - Dust Patrol Alpha.

Don't they just say that so you'll buy their swabs also though....?

Lee I bet you are 100 percent correct on that.

Thanks for the additional info, especially regarding a cable that will work with the Sony.

After doing some searching, I'm tempted to get the Pluto Trigger even though the water valve for splash photography is back ordered at the moment. If you haven't checked it out before, here's the link. I'd be interested in your thoughts.

Gene I looked/studied but didn't act because the one we have works :)
IF I were ever to put more money into it (doubtful) I'd go Cognysis....way overpriced
but their stackshot is top top notch and figure their splash rig would be too.

I might be wrong. It might just be my way of thinking that's all.....? ;-)a

My bad, I meant to type i40. I own the i40 and also 3x tt350. Was hoping for something much smaller but maybe wishful thinking. Fuji do one that’s a small box and only has a front facing camera but it’s so small you can put it in a pocket and forget it’s there

Oh..sony makes the hvl-120. It's really small, and has a ceiling bounce option which is cool

Thanks, I’ll have a look.

When shooting indoors do you just generally pop on a Nissin i40 type flash?
