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.
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.
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.
There’s been a word that Sony A7III could come in 2017. According to the latest reports, it will be announced as soon as today! The A7II replacement will feature some of the A9’s specs, such as the sensor, the body, and the battery. What’s more, it could also feature the A9’s autofocus system. Other than these, website Mirrorless Rumors has revealed a few more specs we can expect.
If you’ve been considering switching to a Sony mirrorless camera, this could be the right time. Sony has announced an offer that allows you to trade in your old (but working) DSLR or mirrorless for some of their models, including the new Sony Alpha a9.
If you decide to engage in the “trade up,” you’ll get the value of your old camera, plus up to $500 bonus offer. The offer doesn’t only include the cameras, but also a variety of full-frame lenses and accessories. And depending on the Sony camera you’d like to buy, you can trade in any camera model you currently own.
Sony makes excellent cameras. In the last few years, they launched a completely new full frame camera system that has pushed the bounds of digital photography. I switched entirely to Sony gear after first seeing the tremendous low-light capability of their a7S and have enjoyed many outings shooting astrophotography on many different Sony camera bodies since. I have previously recommended Sony gear to countless numbers of fellow photographers looking for the best landscape astrophotography cameras. That is no longer the case. If you want to shoot landscape astrophotography, don’t buy a Sony. If you already have a Sony camera, don’t update the firmware.
Here’s why I no longer recommend Sony cameras and how the latest firmware update made Sony’s a7RII and a7SII terrible for astrophotography.
The announcement of the new Sony A9 has created a lot of buzz. And indeed, this camera looks like a dream come true for all mirrorless shooters, especially for sports or wildlife photographers. If you’ve read the announcement and the review, you are familiar with the fact that it features a blackout-free 20fps continuous burst mode.
In this video, you’ll see what exactly it looks like. Hugh Brownstone from Three Blind Men and An Elephant Productions captured it, and it looks really powerful.
Since I finally jumped on the bandwagon and bought a Sony mirrorless camera (even after I said I wouldn’t), I have been looking at options to use my existing Nikon (and Sigma with Nikon mount) lenses with a Sony mirrorless camera.
There are three main options available with the price ranging from under $100 to nearly $500 depending on the Sony mirrorless camera and Nikon lens combination you are trying to use.
In this article I will look at three Nikon F to Sony E adapter options to use Nikon lenses (F and G type) with Sony mirrorless cameras (APS-C cropped sensor and full frame).
You’ve seen many photographers switching from DSLR to mirrorless. Manny Ortiz did the same thing and switched to this system completely. After shooting with Sony mirrorless camera for a year, he gives an honest review of the system. He is very satisfied with it, and as you know, he makes awesome photos. But, he speaks honestly and mentions both advantages and disadvantages of this camera. So, if you’re thinking of switching to Sony mirrorless, you should definitely watch this.
