SmallRig L-Bracket for Sony A7iii/A7Riii Review

Introduction When Sony designed the Sony A7 and A9 series cameras, it seems like they designed it for hobbits or a group of people who have really small hands. I have this idea that they went to market and every photographer they found had hands the size of my 8-year-old

Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E mount Review
