  1. I did this photo with the 70-350 G lens. I don't think the 18-200 will be as good. John
  2. It looks like I will need to decide between Seagulls or beach. I think Seagulls wins. John
  3. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of shooting at the beach. I don’t dare take the A7RIV. I also don’t dare change lenses at the beach. I’ve been using the Sony 70-350 mm for shooting seagulls. But, 70 mm is too long for other beach photos and as I said, I don’t dare change lenses at the beach. I have the Sony 18-135 mm, but 135 is too short. So, I’m thinking the Sony 18-200 mm LE lens. I’ve seen mixed reviews on that lens. Any Opinions? John

  9. Crab Meadow Beach today 10/10/20 with Sony A6600, 70-350 mm lens. John
  10. I've been using the cameras with the front curtain on because that is the default. I haven't had any problems. But, I'm always exploring options. John
  11. Should the front curtain shutter be turned on or off for fast moving wildlife such as birds, and other moving targets? Should it be turned on or off for landscape photos? I have an A7RIV and an A6600 John
  12. I lowered the prices and ordered the A6600 today. John
  13. It can be ordered from this page via PayPal: http://www.drjohnphotography.com/used.htm Shipping is within the U.S.A. only. John
  14. LivShots, I needed someone to remind of that. I will have to wait for it. John
  15. I have the Sony A7RIV and a lot of full frame lenses. I want to replace the Sony A6500 camera with a full frame camera and use the APS-C lenses for a lightweight camera for long hiking. I'm debating between the A7III (23 oz) and the new A7C (17.6 oz) camera to be used with APS-C lenses for lightweightness. I can’t make up my mind. I saw all of the YouTube videos. The A7III is available now. The A7C will be available at the end of October? Any opinions? John
  16. I’m upgrading to the A7C camera and selling the previous APS-C models.

  17. This was actually more of an experiment. It is very rare to see clear skies in my area. I grabbed the closest camera and shot these photos handheld. I didn't have time to setup a tripod, etc. I found it interesting to see the same moon in daytime and nighttime. Daytime Moon: Sony A6500, 70-350 mm lens at 350 mm, f/8, 1/2000 sec, ISO 800, handheld, file size reduced for web. Nighttime Moon: Sony A6500, 70-350 mm lens at 350 mm, f/8, 1/1600 sec, ISO 6400, handheld, file size reduced for web. John
  18. Sony A7RIV, 200-600 mm at 600 mm, 2x teleconverter, 1/250 second, f13, ISO 800, manual focus, hazy sky
  19. There is already a section on Birds in Flight where people have submitted really fine photographs. I think it will be helpful to find out what camera was used, what lens was used, and the camera settings. So, please submit any information and tips and tricks here. John
  20. Sony A6500. Sony 70-350 mm at 156 mm. 1/2000th sec. ISO 320. f/8. He/she was moving rather quickly. John
  21. Has anyone use the Sony 200-600 mm lens for astrophotography? I'm considering it for lunar photography. I also have the 1.4x and 2.0x teleconverters and the Sony 100-400 mm lens. I also have telescopes, but feel one gets better resolution from camera lenses than reasonably prices amateur telescopes. John
