I love my woodsy walks. I enjoy walking here in any season. And I always have my Sony with me. Seriously, I have had this camera for over a year now and it has become the only camera I carry. It is a full frame 42 megapixel compact mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. You get a large sensor, a very large pixel count, and very low noise even at higher ISOs. It is even a great performer in lower light situations.
When I put the Sony up to my eye there is really little disconnect from the reality in front of me. It has a great viewfinder, the advantage being able to see the exposure accurately.
The incredibly high resolution is amazing. It allows me plenty of pixels to play with in processing. The ability to crop using the sharp lenses is another plus for me. The lenses perform sharper at longer distances and wider apertures.
This camera focuses quickly and accurately, not only with the Sony lenses but with lenses designed for other systems. There are many third party manufacturers making glass for the E Mount now. Options are practically endless.
Since day one with this camera I have never taken it off manual. I found this Sony camera to be very intuitive for me to use. And I really like the lighter weight, smaller size of the camera body. I can create a lighter kit when traveling and still get all the bells and whistles I need. I’ve never been disappointed with this purchase.
Battery life could be a bit longer, but I know I just need to tuck extra batteries in, so it isn’t that big of a deal to me.
And as soon as I feel better I hope to head back out there for those woodsy walks. Until then, I’ll be using the Sony A7RII for some still life work here at home. And I’ll be using some of my favorite lenses. . .
