Long time lurker, first time posting pictures.

I have two spots on mine that won't budge...!

Maybe a different fluid would help...?

saliva stains and oil based I think the visible dust smear away is effective

first hand experience how it helped me remove a very tough stain on my a7s

Is the Eyelead SCK-1B the correct gel stick for the Sony sensors..?

I heard mixed experiences with that stick. even though they say it's safe for the Sony sensor. it was bothering enough for me to stay away from it

Cornwallis Wharf, Auckland.

Sky didn't fire up as we hoped, but nice to get out shooting.

I'm really going to miss SR app when my A7mkiii arrives in a couple of weeks. Back to filters lol. I do hope they add apps via firmware update though.

I was super paranoid first time I did it. I watched how aggressive Philip bloom was cleaning his sensor that it made me.brave enough to try. how aggressive? he almost bent his swab like 80 degrees hehe


Did that body have sensor stabilization?
Might change things up a bit.
The gel-sticks are good for dust/hair but for smears of oil they are not as good as wet cleaning.
I bought mine here-
https://photographylif​e.com …sensor-gel-stick-for-sony (external link)

From that site on bodies with IB
'Sony A7 II, A7R II and A7S II advisory: Please be extremely careful when using the product with the A7 II, A7R II and A7S II cameras. Since the cameras have in-body stabilization, the sensor will move during cleaning. Instead of picking the Sensor Gel Stick straight up, we recommend to detach it gently from the side and be attentive during the process of cleaning, so that the IBIS system does not get moved too much. We have tested the product on the A7 II and A7R II successfully, but one must perform the procedure with extreme care on such moving sensors. If the gel sticks a bit too much, please detach it slowly from the side instead of moving it straight up, as shown in the videos.'

For the above reason I've never used mine. Sad? Paranoid :)

A couple gear related comments while in the middle of Disney.

1. I think my infatuation with the 50L and L glass in general is over. As highly regarded as this lens is for its rendering, shooting next to FE35 1.4, it doesn't really hold its own. That Zeiss microcontrast and color and the bokeh of the FE 35 really are a cut above. I'm also missing my 85GM for its bokeh. 50L bokeh is great near MFD, but not so great when you frame loosely.

2. I left the gimbal in the room the past couple of days. Mostly because the new IBIS in the a7riii is really good for video. It won't stabilize while walking, but that's sort of a specialized need for video as moving too much is distracting. But handheld in a stationary position with very small deliberate motion works really well without the gimbal.

3. The 100-400 is really awesome. AF is impressive, especially since eye af is so sticky even at 400mm. Really sharp at the long end even wide open

4. 12-24 is a fun lens. I think for these extreme wide angles, a zoom is the way to go. Very big difference in FOV, particularly with regards to perspective distortion between 12, 14, 16, and 18mm, and it's very situational which focal length you use. I've had issues with primes in these focal lengths because they are such a commitment and if you're stuck with the wrong focal length, you basically ruin the shot. The zoom makes it easier to walk and pull off these extreme FOV when they make sense. The size of the 12-24 is a bonus as it's actually a practical lens to bring around

Another snow last night. Surely we're closing in on the end of winter. Not much 2-3 inches on the ground.
This Tit wondering about a patch of it too-

Good to know there's a noticeable difference with the Canon L glass. I was thinking of getting a used 85L. May as well save up for the 85GM or find a used copy

GOod to know on the Canon L...I was debating a 50L at some point...but think I am going to sell my 50ART on and pick up the 35 f/1.4 instead...better gap from 35 to 85.

And I admit, I admire your drive to shoot creative stuff at WDW...I don't see how you found the time or energy...and you have more kids...I was so tired and worn out by WDW...

it felt like it was going to snow here today..I had to cover all my new azaleas, they are all budding blooms and it was 31 last night...my Bluebirds were out this morning, I got a couple shots, but it was just before heading out for school...the female was looking very different today, very different coloring.
