Just noticed that the a7rIII doesn't have the shooting mode dial that the a9 has. That's a bummer as that dial is actually pretty useful.

I did too, but ended up keeping it in single shooting and AF-C all the time, only rarely would I be in M or L.

for me , not really its already a top notch sensor only debatably beat by the d850? (ff vs ff )..

its all the other upgrades that really matter to me .. joystick!!! improved AF !! even better eye af .. well I didn't have the a7rii but had the 6500 and 7sii , and eye af worked well enough to actually use in actual photo session.. and now its improved ..

plus improved button layout from what I understand..

when I sold the a7sii and 6500 I was about to go a7rii but didn't because.. I heard its AF can be a bit sluggish .. and I really don't like how I had to switch af point with the wheel ..( and also skin tone issues that I'm struggling with )

anyway... the sensor of the 7rii for me was not the reason that kept me from getting it , the sensor or not getting it ,actually made me sad to say good bye to sony, its all the things they fixed that kept me from getting the 7rii

so ,, yeah .. I Pre ordered the A7R3 :-)

now I i'm just going through all my gear to see what I can sell lol..

At the moment all I have remaining from sony is the 28mm .. which I knew not to sell as I had a feeling i'd be back and that was my favorite lens when taking my camera with me on casual days/nights out (where photography is not the primary reason )

so I will be needing something more ..


DONT sell the 28/2. Congratulations on the Riii.
I was looking at the 'trade up' program at Adorama and Poof said 'hey I might want to carry the R2' Ha! I can't win :)

Not the IQ we want in an image but man talk about fun. I got to watch (a rarity here, usually Bluebirds won't show back up
until spring) 4 Bluebirds going in and out of this house--a house made for Screetch Owls but used this past summer by Starlings--it's
a crazy bird world. Anyway named this one Newlyweds :)

I had to stay 20 feet away, almost as skittish as the Blue-Js. So close to 600mm effective. And an obvervation on the 10iv; I thought the a9 filled
up cards fast, this round of shots with the Bluebirds was a bit over 2200 images--not long to do at 24fps.

No, I've never formatted my memory card. When I transfer images to my computer, I take the card out of the camera and place it in a USB card reader. Then I open Windows (7) Explorer and the reader with the card in it now behaves like a removable hard drive. I just browse to the correct folder on the card and cut/paste them into a folder I create on my computer. I have a 2nd hard drive that I use exclusively for images and is where I move the raw images to.

That leaves the folder hierarchy of the memory card intact and the image folder now empty for the next round of shooting. I just remove the card from the reader and place it back in the camera.

I have to say, the most frustrating thing about the memory cards and file names is that it bases file number on the memory card, and not the body...and for people like me that shoot a lot of cards either at an event, on a trip or just keep them in cycle...its really annoying, because by name they will get all out of order...I wish it would not do that.

Hey Carlo...finally got the FW update to install...Eye AF on the 135L and 5ART are both good...not sure how it would work with a native longer prime...but I simulated movement by moving the camera around, and it kept a lock on an eye...

I meant more like a native 85 or 135...don't have access to one ATM...I would say it works plenty good, I will test it tomorrow at the school with kids...that will be a test.

On trips nightly back up to external hard drive AND either the phone memory or usb zip drive (save me at Easter Island when someone in the airlines stole the hard drive), and always format the
card when re-inserting. That's my story, sticking to it.

Travis, editing because I forgot to tell. 3 weeks ago in Yellowstone with the a9 a Lexar 128gb UHS-II 2000x failed. Would not read, write, could not format in camera or in two different laptops on the trip nor on the big machine when we got back. Lexar replaced already...never acknowledged why. Why mention this? Tony Northrup uses big cards for the whole trip. I'm not going to do that now, never did in fact, but def. not now.

thanks Gene (and for the study vids on flash/reflections/etc. Again I need to just fly out and buy the beer and
sirloin and watch you do the magic!).
the 10iv's little sensor is like the engine who keeps saying 'I think I can I think I can'. More I use it more I'm enamored.
From pseudo macro, flash product, BIF, perched.....really a lot in the package. I'd think the true videophiles would be all over it.
