  1. Hi folks! New to the A7III (receiving it tomorrow) and new to the forum. I have a specific scenario that would help me and my photographers tremendously and wanted to see if there is a way to make this happen on the A7III. We do a lot of real estate photography. We take thousands of images daily in coastal location all over the southeast. We always bracket 9 JPGS and deal with them in Photomatix before moving the "merged" images into Photoshop for batch action processing. For the 9 brackets we use every time is (-5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3). Those setting work perfectly for us on 90% of the properties we shoot. That allows us to get great interiors while seeing the ocean out the windows at the same time. However, 1 in 10 homes have a beach view with a dark interior. For those we need to get brackets at (-8, -7 and -6) to add to the original set of 9 brackets above. And by doing that we are in great shape. We then have a clear window view and a great interior. The way we have done it for years on Canon cameras is to take the first set of 9 brackets. Then use the "wheel" to move the entire set of 9 brackets all the way down so the darkest of the 9 starts with (-8 and goes up to 0 for the brightest exposure). That works. However, 50% of the time while the photographer is rotating the wheel the camera gets shifted slightly. Creating an alignment issue. All that said, does anyone know of a way to have the camera bracket more that 9 exposures? Even if we took the first 9 exposures (-5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3) and had to press a button before we take 2nd set of 9 (-8, -7, -6, -5, -4, -3, -2, -1, 0) that would be fine. Pressing a button between sets should cause less camera movement that scrolling a wheel (I would think). Lastly, I understand all about RAW and how we could achieve what we want shooting that way. I get all of that. However, our business model and work flow requires that we do what is stated above using JPGS. Can anyone help with ideas on this? I hope it makes sense! Thanks!
