I'm just discovering how good jpegs are out of my a7R3. Recent trip provided over 1300 images so I decided to take the jpeg card out and save the files off of that card. I am amazed at the lack of noise as well as the sharpness. May have to reconsider developing my RAW images unless absolutely necessary.

A shot from yesterday's South Texas Air Show, featuring the Blue Angels. Was lucky to get the moon emerging in this shot.

Thanks Robert, unfortunately there was an individual just behind this one so it's a bit distracting.

No, not a distraction, it’s a neat composition imo. The fact the background bird repeats the same arc as the foreground bird is the central reason I like the image.

Went to a local arboretum to test out new to me RX1RII. Other than awful battery life, I’m really liking many things about this little camera. I’m not even a 35mm guy (always liked something little wider than 35 like 24 or 28..) but this standard (but boring) FL is slowly growing on me as well. Here are few shots from yesterday.

My a7II exhibits odd colours/leaks when shooting backlit objects. See here:

https://www.dropbox.co​m …Q9pVMYX6cBjSGzi​VcTCa?dl=0 (external link)

and

https://www.dropbox.co​m …U4kx8orkHV9VB_t​Wa2Ka?dl=0 (external link)

(See how the light spills around the subject, and often with an odd colour cast.)

Does anyone else have this issue? If I shoot the same thing with my Nikon or Fujifilm, I don't have the issue. I've used various lenses, cleaned the elements, the sensor, etc etc -?

Love the motion of the water off the top, combined with the fluffiness of the spray at the bottom!

Native FE lens or adapted lens? Adapters can produce internal reflections that look like what seems to be light leaks.

BTW, I would prefer posting a jpeg, which is sufficient for discussion instead of dropboxing the raw file. But, that’s just me...others here may be willing to download raw files.

Looks great! I took the RX1RII to Disney World 2 years ago and it was fun as well as limiting to shoot with just the 35. Especially was fun trying to shoot the Animal Safari with a 35, lol.

Thanks and you are right! Fun but limiting for sure. At least I'll have no size/weight excuses not to carry a FF camera with me everywhere I go (although I don't go places as often as I'd like :(). And for some reason, having a new camera and joy of mobile editing on iPad Pro somehow reignited my somewhat died passion for actual photo taking (not just photography in general). I am now considering adding the a7RIII especially for live eye focus tracking on doggies. :)

Please let me bore you with few more test shots.

Well my latest Sony came in last night. Who says I’m not a Sony fanboy? :p Camera isn’t until today though.

Haven’t had a gaming console since 2013 when I gave away my PS3/XBox 360 after having my first daughter. Boy times have changed. Tried playing my first 2 games and didn’t realize that each game needs to install onto the hard drive. So over 120gb used, can’t imagine how people use ones with a 500gb drive, only a few games and it’s full. First thing did was instal the biggest SSD that was on sale.

Enjoy it. I switched to PS4 this gen from Xbox 360. There are a lot of great games for the system.

I am way the heck behind here...10 something pages...and usually don't drag the old back up...but had to here...

I was away for a 4 day trip last weekend with the family in the campervan. I made the video below on Lumafusion using drone and GoPro footage. Theres also still images in there taken on the a7rIII that I key framed to add some motion.

Its 6 minutes long but if anyone can be bothered watching id appreciate the feedback. (Needs sound and a solid internet connection to keep the sound synced). Oh and I have spotted a glitch around the 3:20 mark so will have to re-upload later.

really nice...I wish I had the know how, time and paticence for this kind of stuff...I have the Osmo...don't use it...its been sitting on my desk since I got back from Death Valley...have not even saved the DV video...we are going on a little getaway weekend just the 3 of us next month...I want to do more video...gotta make myself do it.

Totally awesome Eddie!

I really wish I had the patience to learn how to put something like that together.

same...time is just not on my side.

mystik610 wrote in post #18844641 (external link)
Meant to comment on this earlier, but you're absolutely right about the family valuing videos more than photos. This is the reason I picked up the osmo pocket, though TBH, I've done a terrible job of documenting things lately.

I need to charge mine up...make myself get used to using it...

TMaG82 wrote in post #18844653 (external link)
Yup, exactly. I show the family pictures and they’re bored to watch, the second a video clip shows up and they’re super interested.

oddly, my daughter loves stills...my wife has thousands of them on her phone and my daughter sits and goes through them, remembering the stories that go with them...but I bet if I had a bunch of cool videos like yours on my phone...she would wear it out watching them.
