So here is one nit I'd like to pick about the A7rIII and also see if there is something I'm missing in the handling of these cameras.
I will often want to grab a camera and slap a flash onto it in order to take a family snapshot or something in the house. Compared to a dSLR, I'm finding the process slower because aside from just dialing in my shutter/aperture/ISO, I have to also dive into the menus to change two separate settings every time. Basically, everytime I want to 'slap on a flash' I'm fiddling with other settings. And then when I take the flash off, I'm fiddling again to go back.
1) I have to turn off silent mode, because the flash will not fire in silent
2) I have to change the viewfinder effect to 'OFF' because otherwise I'm staring at a black viewfinder.
Why doesn't Sony at least offer me an option that when flash is detected in the hotshoe, the viewfinder mode turns to 'OFF'
I thought of a workaround, but it doesn't work. I was thinking, why not leave the VF effect 'OFF' and just turn on the histogram. One other super weird (and kind of dumb thing) I notice is that when the viewfinder mode is 'OFF', the histogram is for what the viewfinder is showing you, not for the scene you are about to shoot. So if you have the viewfinder effect mode off, you have the histogram looking great and the meter reading >5 stops underexposed.
I just wanted to take a quick snap of my new puppy sleeping on my wife. This was a lot slower to shoot with the Sony than it would be with my Canon.
