What is the way to put own article in this section? I'm working on a project - transforming hot shoe flash into studio strobes. I'm also going to write an article about this conversion if there is a chance to put it here :)

Sparky, there should be no problem with it at all. If you like there should be possibility to host the article on Dyxum if you like. Just PM me and we can organize everything.

Hi Turerkan

I'd like to have a step by step tutorial about how to fix backfocus and frontfocus problems. Pictures would be great.
I saw a lot of people talking about it in a thread, but the ones who attempted to fix it just mentioned that there are three screws at the bottom of the body. But anyone knows what is the result of turn each screw.
My a700 has BF and I am helpless because the sony assistance in my country does not have a clue about what IS backfocus...

Thank you for your help.

@rsf3127: Gabriel, the best thread for this information is found here. Specific instructions are scattered throughout this thread so read carefully and good luck.

Cheers... Brian
