Congrats and goodluck for more paid gigs. those looks great.

Thank you. Nice to hear you like it as youve stunned us all away with your portraits!

The best thing was when i first showed a picture to one of the models, they said "wow the camera is good". Of course it is but i understand what they mean haha

I love those comments, where instead of great photo, I get a comment of great camera :-P

nice to get free models, have never had such opportunity, but free, why not? I know a few photogs that have to pay for their models, and frequently. Have no idea how that works, but I guess if trying to build a portfolio, having great models certainly help.

Yup. I think for those getting into portrait photography and trying to build a portfolio, you kinda have to go that route.

Oh yeah. I just LOVE when people see some of my landscapes on Facebook and leave comments like "Wow! You must have an awesome camera!" *cringe*.
One of these days I'm gonna ask if they compliment their surgeon on his awesome scalpel.

I was thinking the same, it was a doctor, friend of my doctor brother, that commented on a photo of mine........

back on the topic of models, I know a photog that pays for nude female models. He's married and all, which is funny, dont think my wife would allow that. :twisted:

If you ever visit there house and she/he cook, give them a compliment too like "it's all delicious, you must have a good stove" lol. Just kidding... Forgive them because they do not know what they're saying.

I think you will be happy, love mine same set up. Also with the new redone closer to standard hot shoe you can fire off brand flashes in manual with out an adapter. I haven't tried hss, that's next on the list. The camera is almost all customizable. ߘ0ߘ0ߘ

That's interesting, I did not even realize that the hot shoe did not fire off-brand flashes. I'm not a huge flash guy, but I do use off-camera speedlites triggered via YN triggers on occasions for portraits. Will those still work on the Sony?

Congrats!! I must say, as much as I loved my 5D2, I don't miss it one bit!! The most I've used it for since getting the A7 is photos of all the stuff I've been selling!!

I have a Canon 580EXII and a 430EXII and they both work in my Sony a7r fine off camera in manual mode when I use my Pocketwizard wireless triggers.

Ugh. This is exactly why I feel Sony isn't quite ready to invest into as a system. Why do they have to go and make things all incompatible? I slapped my YN triggers and YN speedlite on my Fuji X100T (I know, sounds kind of ridiculous, but just cause...) the day I got the camera and it worked flawlessly.

I use a YN E3 RT trigger on my a7R...works great. It triggers the Canon 600EX RT.
