For years I have been very frugal with memory cards for my Sony A7RII. I have been using the SanDisk Extreme Pro 95mb/s 64gb and the PNY Elite 95mb/s 128gb (a very underrated card) because I was mainly shooting landscapes and cityscapes. As my kids grew older and became more active with club sports and along with my ever-growing business, I decided to upgrade and give these Sony SDXC UHS-II cards a try.
I wanted to share with everyone some night photos I took with the new Sony A7RIII to show how the now infamous, and according to some unforgivable, "Star Eater" algorithm on the Sony A7 series cameras.
If you're not familiar with the issue, it's basically anything longer than a 3.2s exposure will get a noise reduction applied to help fix hot pixels.
For this video Manny used both the Sony A7RIII and the Sony A7II on a New York City rooftop. This was his first rooftop shoot, so he was pretty excited. Also check out how he handles some of the harsh light and what he does to create the perfect image.
Check out the all new Sony A7RIII Dynamic Range. You can see the Sony A7RIII and A7RII are at the top with the Nikon D850 and Canon 5D Mark IV just below for ISO 100. To see the full results click here
There are few experiences in life that could equate to a week at Burning Man. Off the top of my head, there is nothing that I can think of that would, but I am sure there must be something... Maybe deep sea exploration or being part of a lunar landing team? But that still would not quite match it.
As a photographer, Burning Man exceeded every limit of visually emotional and unequaled imaginable experience...
The rohingya community in the Rakhine state have suffered atrocities in the hands of
military and locals in Myanmar. Their homes have been burnt, people have been killed by
both bullets and knives and their women have been raped. UN has termed it as a textbook
example of “ethnic cleansing”. It is estimated that at least 4,00,000 people have already crossed the border to save their lives.
You knew this was going to be coming soon or later. Instagram just updated their app and you are now able to post up to 10 photos in square, portrait or landscape mode. These are not just limited to photos and is available also for videos.
Years ago, I took a shot at learning how to take photos with a big camera with manual controls and it was a big mess of "try everything and hope something works". ... and I was shooting on film. Things have changed quite a bit since then and now with digital you realistically could use that approach because there is literally no additional cost involved in shooting 50 versions of the same photo. But that's not very rewarding and I wish that someone had given me a couple basic lessons to get me started.
