  • Product Highlight - Alpha 7R V

    • Hey everyone! It's been a minute since we've done a photo dump and I miss seeing what you all have been up to! Share your photos from March and the story behind them below! I went on the hunt for spring ephemerals in March, I was out nearly every week looking for wildflowers! I ended up being invited to a property where there were a ton in bloom. I got to see bluebells, bloodroot, twin leaf, and yellow trout lilys. Plus some nonnatives. Not everything was in full bloom so not all my photos are outstanding but I have a blast. This day I used my Sony A7RV and Sony 16-35 GM.
    • These days, I am toggling the A1 because it is so fast and smart, especially underwater and for wildlife, and the A7R5 because it gives me such a large, beautiful file. I use them both, and I try to carry only a handful of lenses that I know how to maximize well.
    • The AF consistency and accuracy is superior on the A7RV vs. the A7RIV.  I also think the A7RV is a little faster to get onto moving subjects too.  Because you are interested in the 200-600G, the issues you mention with A7RIV can "get you" in certain situations.  The other area where the A7RV is much better is with animal and bird eye AF.  Last, the sensor is the same but the processing of the images off that sensor is different.  Sony learns so fast!  The engineers are plotting ways to improve overall performance constantly even after a new camera ships.  Case in point, I am out shooting landscapes this week in Nevada right now.  I shot this morning at moonset/sunrise and came back to the hotel to find they released a new firmware for my A7CII.  It took just a few minutes to update the camera, and I'll be heading back out the VOF tonigth for sunset/moonrise with that installed.  Pretty cool.  In short, the extra cash it will cost you to get the A7RV instead of the A7RIV will pay off big dividends in the images you make!  pm-r 🙂
    • My #1 suggesting is get all the resolution you can! I like to slice and dice my images into many vertical crops and then string them together for social reels. A very pretty and large arrangement is surprisingly boring as one shot on social. By cropping into multiple frames, I can get the viewer deeper into the image. I LOVE my a7R5. I used the IV version prior. Now, if you want to shoot flowers and wildlife, the a9III may be a great choice, but I am more interested in resolution.
    • Hi everyone!  It's been a while since we've done a photo dump and I'd love to see what you've been up to!  For me, it's honestly been a quiet month of shooting, I got quite sick and spent most of the month holed up. I did photograph a conservation event at the beginning of the month, which was a cool event - though not that thrilling to photograph 🙂 Let's see your shots from this past month!
