If you are an astrophotographer, then you may be familiar with the so-called “Star Eater” problem of Sony a7R II. The noise reduction algorithm of the camera mistakes sharp pinpoint stars for noise, so it deletes them from photos or reduces their brightness. But after open letters and complaints from astrophotographers – Sony seems to have fixed the issue in the new a7R III.
The new Sony a7R III has brought some improvements many of their users have been waiting for. Still, there are debates whether or not it is worth the upgrade. Photographer Manny Ortiz has tested out the new camera from Sony, and he votes “yes” on the upgrade. In his latest video, he gives five reasons why he’ll switch from the a7R II to the a7R III. Let’s see if you agree these reasons are worth the upgrade.
You might not have heard the name Drew Geraci before, but you’ve almost certainly seen his work. At least, you’ll have seen it if you’ve ever watched the opening sequence of hit TV show, House of Cards. Because Drew shot it.
In this timelapse film for Sony Alpha Universe, Drew heads to New Zealand to show off the timelapse capabilities of the new Sony A7R III. and it’s a breathtaking film. Of course, it was shot in New Zealand, so it’s bound to be.
One of the biggest releases these days is certainly the new Sony A7R III. On paper, this full frame mirrorless “speed demon” is really promising. We’ve featured the announcement, and now, as expected, the first impressions are coming in.
We have prepared a round-up of the hands-on impressions, so you can see from a few sources what photographers think of this camera. Judging from the hands-on previews, it seems this camera is as promising in the real world as it is on paper.
I’m at Photo Plus Expo and Sony put quite a few Sony A7R III cameras on their booth to play with. I could not resist. Here are some initial thoughts.
Even without looking at the camera specs, Sony decided to keep the price similar to the price of the Sony A7RII. This decision makes me relax, when the value of the 7RII drops, selling it second hand and getting a 7RIII would be like splitting the value drop across two years. If the 7RIV keeps the same pricing, keeping to the latest A7 series would be quite a small monthly fee.
Features wise, the camera feels like a small iteration on the previous model, more FPS, better battery, two cards slots and a joystick. There is also a pixel shift gazzilion megapixel mode, but we will have to wait for reviews to see if this technology delivers.
Regardless of what I think, though the camera is already B&H’s #1 Seller for mirrorless cameras.
The new Sony a7R III was announced yesterday and it has introduced some improvements over its predecessor, the a7R II. One of the improvements is 10fps continuous shooting, which doubles the speed of the previous model. Guys from DPReview have published a demo, demonstrating what the new mirrorless camera from Sony is capable of. They’ve tested the continuous shooting, as well as the Eye AF, which also seems to be pretty impressive.
Two years after launching Sony a7R II, the new upgrade has arrived. Sony has launched their a7R III, a pretty impressive full-frame mirrorless camera packed in a compact body. While it features lots of the same features as its predecessor, there are some improvements involved, such as two times faster continuous shooting. What stays unchanged is the price: it’s $3,200, like the a7R II when it was first announced.
