Yes, when they blast out of the grass it can be unnerving. LoL.

They generally prefer to run than fly but I've been startled on more than one occasion by these guys walking in the fields. Ruffed Grouse are even worse, normally you see them on the ground but I have had them flush from just above my head in conifers and they scare the hell out of you.:lol:

A couple of random shots from my new a9 today...a flyby and a flyover.

Surface dial was on sale last week so I grabbed one of those too. The fact that you can place it on the screen and an overlay will pop up is cool as hell, but not practical or useful at all for photo editing. But the dial itself is really useful since it allows you to literally 'dial in' you adjustments. Plus it makes scrolling through the catalog a lot easier.

The pen and the dial just change the whole post processing workflow. I basically switched from using the keyboard and mouse to PP, and now PP with the pen in my right hand and the dial in my left. I even mapped ctrl-shift-v to the dial, so I can quickly paste copied settings over between images in my catalog.

Anyway the fact that the dial exists shows how much MS really thought of creative workflows using a touch screen. Really nice touch

This is super cool and didn’t know it even existed! I’m waiting to upgrade my iPad next year with their new screens coming in. However, I keep giving a very hard look at the surface pro!

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to say Hello.

Have a Sony a7iii and am looking to pair it with an a7riii. I notice from the thread headings that people have the a7rii & a7riv but there isn’t many that have the a7riii. Is it not rated as highly as the other 2?

I have lens wise the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art, Sony 55mm 1.8, Sony 85mm 1.8 & the Sony 90mm 2.8 G Macro.

I have the chance to pick up a mint under 750 actuations a7riii for £1300.

Your feedback would be grateful.

Welcome!

I think a lot of people currently with the RIV, ended up selling the RIII to finance it. Also a lot of rII users who didn't need the AF and speed upgrades skipped the rIII, but picked up the rIV for the resolution. OTOH there are a lot of people who skipped out on the rIV because the rIII is more than good enough in many aspects.

I still think the a7rIII is probably the most balanced camera for the money. The rIV is an evolution of the rIII with a resolution bump, AF improvements and other things niceties but the rIII and rIV are more similar than they are different. I own both the rIII and rIV right now specifically because they are kind of redundant.

Exactly what Mystik said. For me I upgraded from the original A7R to the rIV. Too good of a deal to pass up was available. If your getting a good deal on the rIII then go for it. It’s going to be a personal decision if the price difference is worth it for the extra resolution, improved AF (not that the AF on rIII is bad at all), enhanced weather sealing, and dual UHS-II slots.

Hot peppers and a hot Finch. The Finch was shot using the 200-600 + 1.4 extender and even then, small in the frame.

Well yeah kinda. Which is to say I make it work. Not perfect but protects the upper corners of the camera
which historically I tend to hit on stuff and chip the paint....really helps for re-sale eh. Only thing that is irritating
is opening/closing the card door---which on a trip I only do once a day in the camper so no biggie.

thinking about getting a A7rii, my question is: is the sony 24-70 F4 worth the extra $$ over the Sony 28-70? I normally shoot landscapes and long exposures, if that makes a difference..

You want the zoom eh? OK given that choice the 24-70/4. Me, well I'd go with the Zony 35/2.8 or even the 28/2....better yet please look at the Tamron 28-75 in that FL. Add the 17-28 Tamron for a roundabout.

We use Sugru in many many places. Even my smartphone has a drop to quickly orient me to up vs. down.
Got little dots all over the camper.

Another situation where having the RX10 ready came in handy. Pheasants don't wait for you to set up a shot. This gentleman disappeared within a second of me grabbing this shot.

Beautiful Ed. Again reminding me of the wealth you have out there. I've only seen one in my life and such a spectacular species.

First frost this morning

Great shot, and frost in Dallas! I keep forgetting Dallas is kinda north.
I'd gladly trade the snow outside with you.

Yeah I'm really digging it. I've been using macbook pro's for 15 years and waited patiently for a touch screen macbook pro for post processing workflows but it hasn't happened. I've been following the iPad Pro enhancements and the development of photoshop for iOS but it involves too many compromises for me.

It depends on what you're going for though. Windows is a bit 'busy' for a tablet OS, and the iPad's interface is better suited for mobile use. That said, the surface devices have a proper file system, have ports for SD cards and hard drives, and can run full fledged photography software so they are better workhorse devices.
