    On the streets

    I was in Gloucester this afternoon and took these street photos, I did ask some of them and show them the results that they were happy with. The gent under the arches I was able to have a chat with and offerred to buy him some hot food and a drink which he refused as he was going to do his shopping. A really nice gents and he was happy with the photo. It has been a long time since I did any street work and it was nice to get back to it.

    Back Button Focus for A7 III

    I tried back-button focus on my A7iii when I first got it (use it on my Nikon's) but have switched back to shutter button on the Sony and find it better for me - very much a personal choice though.

    A quiet day

    Thanks thefsb for the kind words. I traded in a load of micro 4/3rds kit I have not used for quite a long time and that allowed me to get the 100-400 + 1.4TC and I only put £200 to ward the deal, I will get £100 back from Sony cashback so that combo cost me £100 out of my pocket and the chance to move on kit I have not used for a while. I am going to keep the 70-300 for a while as it offers a small powerful lens in a single bag kit ( A7iii + 3 lenses & flash in 1 small Tenba bag) when size/weight is critical.

    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.
  9. Have a look at the Mark Galer videos on YouTube, he is a Sony Ambassador and has put together some superb videos on all aspects of using / setting up the Sony cameras. Have a look at the link below: http://www.markgaler.com/camera-custom-settings I hope this helps and enjoy the new camera.
  10. I have been contemplating a small fast prime for street work rather than using the 24-70, after a lot of reading and watching reviews (I know some are biased/funded) I have opted for the Sony Zeiss 55mm f1.8 so that I can travel light and shoot wide open even in low light - it still has the £80 cash back on it as well! I would appreciate any comments, feedback and images taken with this lens. I understand it is not "weather sealed" but there seems to be mixed views on this. I will be using it on the A7iii I will be cautious about the elements.

    Boxing Day hunt meet

    Thanks Lescatalpas, you are right but it also performs well in lower light where ISO creeps up into the 10,000ISO arena, not had a problem with AF either.

    Boxing Day hunt meet

    Thanks Ronald, the combo worked perfectly and gave me what I was after.
  13. I must prefix this by saying I am completely impartial in this and attended purely for the photographic opportunities the event offers. it is the Boxing Day meet held in Cirencester Park, and I wanted to try the A7iii + 70-300 f4.5 - 5.6 OSS lens for some action shots and it delivered perfectly, locking on and holding lock so I am very happy. The photos show the back of the Earl's and Countess Bathurst's house as well as the pouring of "The Port" and local views as well as some of the members of the drag hunt. Again please judge these from a photographic aspect not based on your views toward hunting. Thank you and enjoy.

    Commercial advert with A7III + FE 24mm 1.4

    What a great short film that demonstrates what the A7iii can deliver in the right hands with the right lens - thank you for sharing (I am not really a video shooter but great to see this as it endorses the cameras capability should I need to shoot video).
