The weather has sucked lately and haven't had a chance to shoot much.

Got these really cool vintage light bulbs the other day. Macro shot using the Batis 85 and some extension tubes. Unfortunately the glass had a lot of scratches...which the light was reflecting off of.

Yeah, was whining about it for quite a while now :D

It made me feel really stupid having followed the milkyway picture thread here with all those nice shots that im trying to do on my own but never could make. Theres a guy from new zealand making it look so easy, was really depressing. Honestly happy now, i think next time im doing it with the A7Rii, hopefully not next year lol

Hah. Admiring a type of photo and technique and eventually getting to the skill level or having the opportunity to shoot something similar is always a huge milestone.

So much coolness in this thread - best place on the Internet imo.

Gene, I failed to say so earlier, but I loved your GoPro movies - I'm hungry for more. :)

Eddie, congrats on yours; and your steering wheel comment gave me a really good laugh. :)

Much of North FL, and South AL and GA was hammered with rain today, so we escaped a couple hours drive north to Cheaha Mountain (Alabama) where it was raining significantly less (a7R II + Zeiss Otus 1.4/55mm ZE):

I think this thread is definitely the best one on POTN. Although I don't have a Sony I follow it avidly for many reasons, not least of which is that everyone is so supportive of each other and egos are left at the door (so to speak). Also, the knowledge shared by everyone is invaluable and much of it is not brand dependent. I think I follow most of you on Flickr but it's the exchanges that make it a community. So hope you don't mind me crashing the party. (And you never know I might one day buy a Sony!)

Amazing image, David - love the atmosphere in it.

Thinking out loud here......but I think the odds of Sony releasing a compact, and more affordable FF mirror less next year is pretty high.

Based on the historical pace of updates, the a7II is due for an update sometime next year. I say by Spring of next year to launch a new body alongside the 8 new FE lenses we're supposed to be getting. My gut is saying that the a7II goes the direction of the a7rII and a7sII, and moves up-market in terms of price and features. The a7sII pushed itself further into the video niche, so there's room for the a7sIII to be the low light still shooter with a BSI sensor (more than 24mp, but less than 42mp)? or perhaps put a new AF system into it, bump the FPS, and make it a FF sports shooter? Or maybe a combination of both. Either way, I don't see the a7III moving down-market.

If the a7III does move up-market, there will be a gaping hole in the compact, budget friendly FF realm that the a7 once occupied....which is why I'm thinking we'll see an a6 next year. The pop-up EVF in the rx1rII is rather telling. If you're a manufacturer like sony, who makes most of the components within the camera in-house, you'd want to leverage economies of scale to put components in as many different product lines as possible. My bet is that we see an a6 with the existing 24mp sensor, 179 point AF system, and pop-up EVF No IBIS to keep cost and size down. Price right at $2k +/- a couple thousand bucks. I'm also betting we see more compact, and affordable FE primes. 50 or 40 f2 pancake?

Congrats on the MW!! Fantastic captures.

We were hiking 3 days ago adjacent to the Volcan Arenal NP, found this guy on a tree, lesson is while in CR to NEVER put your hand anywhere without looking seriously closely first, so hard to spot. This is a brown Eyelash Viper-

Yikes! You've run into some very fearsome creatures on your trip! I watched YT videos on those bullet ants; nightmarish stuff. Now got to check out these Eyelash Vipers.

Super images and as usual, it's hard for me to keep up. :-) MM, I'm definitely not a fan of vipers. I've lived in So. Cal. all my life and I've yet to see a rattlesnake in person...and that's just fine with me.

Annie, thanks for the comments and the likes you've given my images on Flickr. Hopefully you will get a Sony in the future. ;-)a

Here's the latest on the shipping of my gimbal from Hong Kong. I'll have to check back later to see if it will make it to me today or if I'll have to wait until tomorrow. Either way, it's going to be a long day. :lol:

I don't think I mentioned it but the shipping was free.

Why Hong Kong? They don't have gimbals at B&H?


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

Agree wholeheartedly Annie. I think its because the a7 cameras are attractive to people who have a real appreciation for the real pro's and con's that exist with any system. No one buys an a7 camera on the basis of brand....so you don't see the mindless brand/format bashing that you see everywhere else. Take the divisiveness of brand bias/association out of the picture (pardon the pun) and the discussions become more productive and informative. I've learned a lot from this thread and continue to do so.

They do...just not this one...not yet anyway. Even though I'm old, I actually do research when I buy ya know! :lol: I ordered directly from the manufacturer in this case.

One thing I especially appreciate is that although we're all big fans of the a7 series, everyone here (unlike most other places) has loads of genuine respect and appreciation for other camera brands and models. In fact if anyone does express interest/plans of buying a different brand (Fuji, Canon, GoPro, etc.) the responses are always encouraging and supportive. Conversely, if anyone expresses a dislike about their a7 series camera, they aren't criticized or chastized. This is really rare stuff for an Internet forum...really hope it stays like that. :)

Blown away by the low price on that thing...what a bargain! Can't wait to see it in action!!

Still, I'm not sure if that is really a lower price than the DJI Osmo. The Osmo is $650 and includes the camera. This is $300 for the gimbal + another $400 for the GoPro, right? I'm just trying to wrap my head around the options. Another cost I would need to consider is factoring in upgrading my Sony Vegas license.
