Update 04.05 2016: i will add more images to this post soon, how you can use this app in a more creative way!



The Sony Smooth Reflections  App is one more  very useful app that expands the possibilities of the Sony Cameras and gives you very good results compared to a real ND Filter. What´s also an advantage is you can set shutter and aperture settings which you can´t use when you are using a strong ND Filter in strong daylight, if you would like to get similar settings you would have to stack filters.  When you have lenses where you can´t screw filters on and you don´t want to buy very expensive filter systems then this app is your best solution. Just keep in mind that this app will increase your shuttercount of the camera a LOT if you use it often, because it takes 256 shots for the smoothest result.  The Sony Smooth Reflectioons App can be found here for your cameras like the Sony A7, A7II, A7rII, A7sII, A6300…:
