Allows you to mount the camera on a tripod in portrait orientation.

Yes, but more specifically it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod in portrait with the lens centered over the tripod's pivot point. That's the idea but with the a77 you can't attach a remote release to the camera and keep it centered over the tripod, you have to move it aside so the door and cable clears the clamp. I took some tabletop shots when I first got it but didn't work them up as I didn't really like them. I'll do it anyways later tonite and post them up somewhere here to see the problem.

EDIT: see here

Felicitations Rev Doc. A beautiful example. It appears to be unused. Good shooting, indeed!

Very nice -- but I'm curious: how did you get the shot with both apertures partially open? At least if memory serves, you can normally only operate one at a time (i.e., you have to set the manual one to the "A" position before the camera will operate the other). Has my memory gone completely wrong on me?
    Later,

    Jerry.

Someone was eventually going to do it, it might as well be me


BTW: NEX-7 + LA-EA1 did not recognize the SAL-14TC + SAL-300F28G Combo. But, the SAL-300F28G alone was recognized.

Here is the result.

No, your memory is correct. When the lens is mounted on a camera you can only stop down one set of blades or the other. But when it's not mounted you can close the rear blades with the lever on the lens butt, and you can close the front rings with the aperture ring on the lens.
