For standard "properly exposed" images this is true, however yesterday and was quite surprised to see a huge difference in underexposed images. This immediately tells me that if I want to do HDR bracketing then I may want to set the Raw to uncompressed for a cleaner HDR result:


On my phone so will watch later but thanks for the heads up

The neon-lit gateway of Kabukicho, Tokyo, made famous through Japanese film and animation.

A7r with Canon 70-200, stitched for greater resolution.

Which do you prefer - colour or B&W?

Hi everybody !
I wonder if a Sony A7 I (not II) with a Canon EF 300mm f4 is possible ? Thanks !

It's possble, I've tried my 300mm f2.8 on a A7, it works, but its on the slow side.
I'm using a cheap adaptor.
Depends on what your going to use it for. It would be quicker to use it in manual mode.

Thanks for the answers about lens stabilization on the A7s.

The in body stabilization on the A7s II can only help.

But about compressed raw: I need every inch of wiggle room I can get, so uncompressed is essential. I'll be shooting on film and TV sets with no ability to control light. I shoot what I can, so I need as much forgiveness as possible.

Also, the 12 megapixels is a good thing (smaller files and better low light).

The big thing is sound. The A7s and A7s II are the only full framers that can shoot 100% silently. Yes, I can get a sound blimp for any DSLR, but no thanks. That just adds weight and limits control.

Thanks again for the answers. They were perfect. I'll be investing in the A7s II, and then pick up the new Sony 24-70 master lens when I can afford it.

a7R II shoots 100% silently as well. Since you need video, the a7S II is easily the best choice though. Can't wait to see what cool stuff you're up to. :)

Thanks. Actually I don't need video. My biggest priorities are low light and no sound. The rest is all incidental.

I'll have zero control over light, and will be kicked to the curb if I make any noise. ߘ

I wonder how quiet Sony's A6000 and 6300 are.

Using a gross 16-35mm lense for first two (forget which brand) and Canon 40mm F2.8 for last shot.

Not the Paramount Pictures logo.

Star trails recede into dawn over Miancimu (also Mianzimu), the second highest peak in China's Meili Snow Mountain massif, where the three rivers Mekong, Salween and Yangtze run in parallel. Taken from Feilaisi, across the Mekong valley from the mountain.

127 stacked exposures taken from the beginning of twilight until sunrise, with gradually-shortening exposure times (beginning at 30 seconds and finishing at 1/60 second) to account for the changing light.

A7r with Sigma 120-300 OS @ 220mm

Most beautiful imagery!
Care to share how you 'gradually-shortening exposure times (beginning at 30 seconds and finishing at 1/60 second)'....that doesn't look to be in the capable
range of the Sony app ???

Manually, with the aid of a separate light-meter.

here are a couple questions. Feel free to ignore or answer if interested.

1. If you own the A7s original, how badly do you feel the need to upgrade (or not upgrade)?

2. If you own the A7s II, do you feel like it was worth the upgrade or do you, on hindsight, feel as though it wasn't as necessary as you originally thought?

Thanks and have a groovy day.
