    Sony A9 from A Nikon Shooter

    I'm a regular Nikon shooter who recently had the opportunity to try out the Sony A9 and I must say, I fell in love with the camera within 24 hours of use. I have now added one to my kit. I like to make videos of my photography adventures and thought I would share my 1st Sony video here. If linking to videos is not allowed in the forum, I apologize in advance! https://youtu.be/QN3Ys-j4twg I've also attached my favorite image from the shoot!

    They are both superb cameras and the A7iii is very much a "Mini A9". I do know that a lot of photographers shooting weddings with Sony are using both cameras with the A9 covering the silent shooting church element and the A7iii for flash needs. The shutter on the A9 is stated as a life in excess of 500,000 actuations but I cannot see anything quoted for the A7iii. Flash use with the A7iii with mechanical shutter still gives you 10fps (if the flash keeps up) but in the A9 with mechanical shutter it drops to 5fps (more than enough for most). I have shot both of my cameras at 12800ISO without issue and with very little noise that is easily reduced in LR so more than enough for low light shooting. Currently in the UK the A9 has a new price of £3400 so a big saving on original price and I am sure that when the A9ii launches in time for the Olympics, the A9 price will fall even more but suspect that will be much later this year so a case of balancing need over want. A difficult decision to make and I have recently added the A9 to my A7iii (traded in some unused Nikon F lenses and the Sony 70-300mm so ended up paying £2000 for the A9 after some serious saving) I do shoot a mix of subject matter to include airshows, car & bike racing as well as events so mix and match the cameras depending on speed of subject matter and both compliment each other very well - my images can be seen here if you are interested: http://571photography.blogspot.com/ The swans and signets as well as the re-enactment event were taken with the A7iii and the airshow/car& bike racing as well as much of the nature are with the A9. Both are superb cameras however if I had to choose just one it would be the A9. Apologies for the long winded response and good luck with the decision.

    Just picked up the teleconverter and have been trying out on my Sony 100-400. The results are amazing with super-sharp images being made wide-open. I am not detecting any difference in AF on the a9 either.

    The Eagle has landed... After some panic set in when the shipper switched from FedEx, where I was having the lens held, to UPS. A redirection to a UPS Store, was required, then finally the lens arrived! After a quick change of the tripod foot to the Wimberly and wrapping in a LensCoat, we were ready to go. Field reactions to follow...

    Samy, first I highly recommend that you view the excellent videos posted on Youtube by Mark Galer. He has a specific one on saving the camera settings to the memory locations that correspond with the 1, 2, and 3 on the Mode dial. But let me briefly point you in the right direction. First, the numbered positions (1, 2, 3) on the Mode dial refer to memory locations where you can save nearly all of this cameras abundance of settings. It is a huge number of settings, not just 1. So I won't list them all here. Note, though, that it includes the "Mode" that was in use when you saved the camera's settings. For example, if you were in "A" mode when you saved the camera's settings for "1" then when you turn the dial to "1" the camera will be in "A" mode. When you switch to 1 or 2 or 3 on the Mode dial, you are resetting all of the settings in the camera that were in place when you "saved" to "1". This "saving" operation is performed by going to the first Camera menu, the 3rd page and the look at the second option from the bottom. But before you go there you need to make ALL of the camera settings exactly as you want them to be when you turn the dial to "1". Once the camera settings are saved to "1" (or "2" or "3") the next time you turn the Mode dial to that number ALL of the camera settings will be restored to the state that they were when you saved them. You can of course change the settings while remaining in the Mode. But once you turn the dial to A or S or M or P and go back to, say 1, all the saved settings will again be restored. You do not save settings for the numbered Modes simply by changing the setting while in that Mode. It must be done with the menu item I pointed out. And it will apply to all settings on the camera. This is a very powerful capability and I'll explain how I use it in just a moment. But first, I suggest not using the terminology "C1 or C2". In the Sony world, that terminology applies to the 4 customer buttons you can setup in various ways. (Again, I suggest you go through Mark Galer's video tutorials.) How I use Modes 1, 2 and 3. Since each of these modes applies to nearly all of the settings on the camera, I have arranged them for specific and very different types of shooting. I use 1 for Landscape shooting with a tripod, I use 2 for Action shooting (sports, wildlife) and I use 3 for Portrait shooting which I do very rarely. When I am just walking around I typically have the mode set to A and a lot of other things different. Here is how it works. The first thing I did is set up the camera - all the settings that were required - to the setting I want for Landscape on a tripod. Mode is set to Manual, Aperture to 9, ISO to 100, Steady Shot is turned off, Focus is set to DMF and so on. (I used Mark Galer's suggestions as a starting point.) Once the camera was set up the way I like for this situation then I go to the the Menu, Camera 1, 2nd page and near the bottom click on MR blah blah Memory. I am then presented with a confirmation screen for all of the camera's settings that will be saved. Assuming I agree with those setting I select the memory location from the choices across the top (1, 2, 3, etc.). (Ignore the M1, M2, M3, M4 for now). Then hit Enter and all of those camera settings are saved. Now that I have setup (for me) Mode 1 for Landscape, every time I want to shoot a Landscape/tripod shot, I simply switch the Mode dial to 1. I can trust that all the settings are the way I want - this includes being in Manual mode. I can of course alter them while shooting. For example I can change the aperture. BUT, the changes I make while shooting in Mode 1 do not change what is saved for Mode 1. Should I leave Mode 1 and them come back, all of the settings will be back to what I saved for Mode 1. So I am always at the same starting point. If I want to change a saved setting in Mode 1, I must save it again. (This is actually quite easy. Go to Mode 1 which resets everything to what was most recently save in Mode 1, then change the setting you want to "semi-permanently" save, then go to the Menu Camera1 operation that you did to originally save those settings and do it again. All of your settings will be saved again but because you only changed one setting only that one will look different when you go back to Mode 1.) Also note that if you are in Mode A for example and you go to Mode 1. When you return to Mode A the camera's settings will be put back to the way they were when you were previously in Mode A. In other words, once you leave Mode 1 your camera settings are returned to what they were before you entered Mode 1. It can seem complicated but once you get it set up it is awesome.

    DESIGN FAULT IN A 7 seriesn & A 9

    Not a design flaw but OPERATOR ERROR. Simple as that. Had a 70-300 land on the lens hood straight to the concrete because I didn't rotate it to lock. Didn't blame the camera for a design flaw. Blamed myself for being careless and inattentive. If it was truly a design flaw the internets will be replete with similar horror stories. I suppose Sony could fashion something requiring a key to be inserted and rotated before you swapped lenses but that punishes EVERYONE instead the minuscule number who need parental guidance. Face it... You screwed up. Happens to us all, but only once if we learned something from it.

    Squirrel - Canon FD 85mm L

    Shortly after getting the Canon FD 85mm f/1.2 L lens to use on the Sony A7 (Fotodiox adapter I think) I decided to take it to the park to see what wildlife I could get. I found some very cooperative squirrels. Unfortunately they were so friendly that they were often too close for the lens to focus (90cm minimum focus distance). This is an un-cropped image.

    Farol de Ponta Delgada

    There was quite a bit of effort to get the right angle, and precisely focused (manual focus). A moment of sun lights the side of the tower. Hand held. If I had a tripod with me I would have done a long exposure too. Post processing, not much. I like this one, thats how I remember the tower, and that day. The upload destroys it quite a bit.

    Stromboli Volcano

    Stromboli Volcano I post this not because it's technically great - it isn't - but because it illustrates that the A7Riii can get a decent photo where lesser cameras cannot. This is Stromboli volcano, Sicily, Italy. I took this handheld from the deck of a small cruise ship (50 passenger). Many others were out there with various cameras (and iPads!), but I was the only one who came away with a usable picture (after I brought out the shadows in Lightroom CC for iPad, though this version was processed with DxO Photo Lab.) I had initially been using a Platypod strapped to the deck railing, but we had sailed far enough past that I couldn't get the right angle so I just handheld it. Sony 24-105 G f4 at 1/4 second, ISO6400. This is a close crop, but thanks to the 42MP image it still looks good. If you look at it closely you'll see the effect of camera shake, but otherwise it is quite nice. I won a shipboard contest with it, and many of my fellow passengers asked me for a copy.

    A quiet day

    I called in at the nature reserve this afternoon and it was very quiet (it was windy though), I did manage to get some shots of a heron in flight and another one coming in to land as well as some smaller birds looking for food. The A7iii with the 100-400 + 1.4 convertor delivered some great images even though they were at 12,800 ISO.

    A trip to the seaside

    We went to the seaside for a couple of days and despite the damp and overcast weather I still managed to capture some photos that I am happy with. I used 2 lens, the 55mm f1.8 and the 70-300mm f4.5 - 5.6 and they both delivered.

    Which fast lens?

    The 55 1.8 zeiss is amazing, I would consider that lens for sure, certainly for indoors. And in stead of prime I would consider the 16-35. If you have money to burn the f/2.8 and otherwise the f/4. Both are amazing. The new 24 is still an unknown, but it's going to be g master, so I would bet that's a candidate.
