Big post but hopefully no one cares.

a6500 with PD capture clipped to my pack was perfect this weekend. Outstanding lightweight kit. Perfect for on the go activity. Came away with a bunch of great shots. I never took my big FF DSLR out for this stuff. We did 60 miles, >6000ft climbing, >10,000 descent. Perfect weather!

Thanks Vinz! And yeah Travis I agree that the difference in IQ is pretty negligible outside of extreme circumstances. I've managed to hit the limit of the a9's DR and when I directly compared the a7rII and a9, it did come out to right about a 1 stop difference. But when I do hit that limit, its in really deep shadows when you push the exposure 3+ stops...usually it manifests in some random shaded area in the background. In those cases I've learned to just go back and drop the exposure of those areas to get rid of the noise.

I had a shoot at 2 in the afternoon y'day and ended up using the a9. Really bright outside so I used the meter for highlights mode on the a9 (really useful for outdoor portraits!)...when I got back home I found that I had to push the exposure 4 stops, but the files turned out fine. Underexposed mid-tones seem to be fine.

forum: Sony Cameras

since the camera is so blazing fast, is it possible to HDR the scene with E shutter? You can probably do a 3 shot bracket and you'de be well within striking exposure.

I picked up a Song 12-24 G today after a fair bit of soul searching on whether I actually need this lens or not, in the end GAS prevailed. I primarily bought it as a replacement for my VM 12 which I actually like quite a bit except for the outer corners where I've never been completely happy with. So far I've tested it against my Zeiss 15 ZE, Leica Tri-Elmar 16-18-21 and the Loxia 21, will be testing it against the VM shortly. The output of the 12-24 is really outstanding, it's better in the corners than the Zeiss and the Leica, roughly the same in the centre at 15-16mm, I think the Loxia has the edge at 21mm. The biggest disadvantage of the 12-24 is the difficulty in using filters, doable but not optimal unlike with the Leica and the Loxia. The build quality obviously is in a different categary than eith ethe Zeiss or Leica lenses but it certainly is a very lightweight for sure.

This is the first Sony lens that I've purchased so I was very hesitant about getting a well centred copy, after a significant amount of testing I can say I'm very happy with my example.:-)

Got 21 shots off on this moth before he moved, 20 fps helps! I put focus near the back then pulled the camera forward as the shutter was release. Pulled 10 shots out of the 21 captured and put into Zerene Stacked for the end result.

Thanks for the link Charlie, I have been following that thrwad aswell, not sure if that is the way I want to go, as much as I hate the 150mm filters I might need to go there with the NiSi solution.

it's an inexpensive experiment with a single 6 stop ND filter, my most used filter. I've shot it a few times and I can definitely live within the limitations.

100mm filters annoy me as is, 150mm is too troublesome for my style I'de say. I'de like to stay neat and discrete ;-)a

Shot my first wedding with the a9 this weekend.....really happy with the camera as it got the job done so effortlessly. AF and everything is so quick that it just churns through the job with ease. Videographers had some bright persistent lights that I was able to play off of to get some 20fps sequences too...which was nice for dance floor shots and things like catching the precise moment when the bouquet lands in the hands of one of the bridesmaids during the bouquet toss.

I've shot a couple of weddings on the a7rII and the sluggishness always bugged me, but when its not doing the heavy lifting and is being utilized as a second camera. 42mp also comes in handy as 200mm isn't always enough.

EF 24-70II worked REALLY well with the a9 even in low light during the reception.

2 of the a9 batteries lasted 12 hours and 1,300 exposures.

Still in the midst of the onerous process of processing all of these files...here are a few so far:

#1 for the mirror reflection and #3 do it for me! Takes a special talent to do a wedding, not only talent but confidence I'd never have.

Give him a home Gene!
Last year we maintained two mantids for almost 6 months, i even ordered fly larvae to feed them with.
I've got a soft spot for them.
